ALREADY GONE!

Ken Ham, of the Creation Museum and Answers in Genesis, speaks on the topic of why 70% of youth of evangelical churches are abandoning the faith when they become adults. This video is also an excellent apologetic for Biblical creationism.  Watch the 3-part video…

  1. I have read Ham’s book, “Already Gone” and have found it quite useful and concise.

    One may begin any inquiry by starting with the Words of God which interprets academia, or by starting with academia which interprets the Words of God.

    Where one starts is where one worships. The beginning points of view are so diverse, that conclusions based upon the data will be radically different.

    Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord and on that law he meditates day and night.

    Jerry,

    Thank you for your comment. It sounds like you have a good understanding of the truth here. We need to propagate that truth.

    Growing up in church, I’ve heard sermons and read articles and books with this thesis. My take on it is the completely different. I think the reason students leave church for two reaons.

    1. There is usually a complete lack of critical thinking among church leadership, but children and youth are given the tools read and insterpret the Bible for themselves. The result is that as students become adults, they find much of whay they were taught was indoctrination, and not examining the scriptures in the contexts in whuch they were written. For example, we are told in church that Daivd loved Jonathon… but nowhere in the text do we find this.

    2. The second reason is most churches do nothing but meet the needs of their church members while the commntiies in which they reside have alcoholics, drug dealers and abusers, crime, and poverty… and the people on the outside of the church are rarely reached by those on the inside. From my perspective, it is very difficult to fellowship with Christians who refuse to reach out and rescue people from this kind of bondage unless they first start coming to church.
