Luke 23:14 ESV ..." And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled."

 

 It has been reported that most people lose their faith when they leave high school. Some have estimated this dropout in alarming terms, stating that a large majority of young Christians will lose their faith. The Barna Group says that this is a myth. In Reality: there are three distinct patterns of loss: prodigals, nomads, and exiles.
Prodigals. In essence, prodigals say they have lost their faith after being a Christian at some time in their past. 

Nomads. More commonly, young Christians wander away from the institutional church. Roughly four out of ten young Christians fall into this category. They still call themselves Christians but they are far less active in church than they were during high school. Nomads have become 'lost' to church participation.

How Much of the Bible is
Relevant for Today?

 

It was May 2012. Plans had been announced of a privately funded distribution of King James Bibles into every school across England, to mark its 400th anniversary. Then, unexpectedly, that famed atheist, Richard Dawkins, not only chose to endorse the scheme but also offered to help pay for it.

 


His rationale: “I have an ulterior motive for wishing to contribute to this scheme.
"People who do not know the Bible well have been (deceived) into thinking it is a good guide to morality….I have even heard…that, without the Bible as a moral compass, people would have no restraint against murder, theft and mayhem. The surest way to (enlighten) yourself of this pernicious falsehood is to read the Bible itself.”
