Sase motive pentru care tinerii crestini parasesc Biserica

In ultimul sondaj efectuat de Barna Group gasim cele sase motive pentru care tinerii crestini din America parasesc bisericile :

1) Bisericile par a fi exagerat de protective.

2) Experientele tinerilor in contextul crestin sunt superficiale . O treime din ei spun ca Biserica este plictisitoare. Un sfert din cei interlievati considera credinta ca fiind nerelevanta pentru cariera si interesele personale.

3) Bisericile devin antagonice stiintei. Un sfert din ei, considera crestinismul ca fiind anti-stiinta.

4)  Experientele tinerilor crestini asociate cu sexualitatea sunt de cele mai multe ori simpliste si condamnabile.

5) Lupta cu natura exclusivista a crestinismului.

6) Biserica este perceputa ca fiind neprietenoasa cu cei care se indoiesc.
