Why aren’t young adults going to church anymore?

You don’t have to have a Bachelor’s degree in current events to know that the young adults in this generation aren’t going to church like they used to.

According to an article on Christian Post only 2 in 10 Millennials believe attending church is important. Young adults are very different from twenty years ago and social issues are also different so we must take all of this in consideration. Parents are no longer teaching their children the importance of God in their daily life and as a result of that we have a generation filled with people who think they are entitled to stuff.

If you think you are entitled to anything remember you are only entitled to what you work for. Their are three quotes that stood out to me in the article and I want to address each of them individually : “A lot of life (for Millennials ) is about fun and entertainment which happens on Friday and Saturday nights if you are working.”

“It’s difficult to get up on Sunday to go to church because the weekends are primarily for fun .” The third quote that stood out to me is , “They are concerned that the church will criticize their lifestyle choices.”

I want to discuss the last one first since it is the most interesting.According to 1 Corinthians 4:5 whatever is done in the dark will be exposed in the light anyway so the best thing to do is avoid doing anything that you wouldn’t wont exposed.

I know we all make mistakes and some people love to use the , “ God said don’t judge “ motto { Although God did say that he didn’t mean it in the way the “New-Agers” are trying to twist it into. }but we need to make better decisions so we won’t have such bad consequences later on down the road. Whether you are in church or not your sin ,secret,evil,etc. will still be exposed so why let Satan stop you from developing a relationship with Jesus?

Church should be a place where people with all sort of problems come and get help.  Church should be an edification not a judgement ceremony; So many people nowadays go to church one way and come out the same way ! You should go to church with an issue and come out differently, the transformation will not happen overnight but when it is complete you should definitely notice a difference.

The second thing I found absolutely devastating was that millennials find it hard to get out the bed Sunday morning to praise God. Whether you are a morning person or not you should be at church ( When I say church I mean a church that preaches bible based sermons and not feel good sermons.) hearing the word of God because if God was as trifling as some humans are he wouldn’t wake us up in the morning ;but thank God I serve a God who doesn’t have that type of heart.

I will say it and I will say it again , “People make time for whatever they want to do . “ I find it weird that people find the time to go to secular artists’ concerts and then go to work the next day . People don’t have a problem at all with coming in at 2 am and going to work at 8 am but when it comes to God their just simply too tired.

We live in times where their are services all throughout the day and if you can’t make it to church that day you can watch them online ( If your church offers online streaming. ). While watching church online is a good thing nothing beats actually being their in God’s temple in person.

Their are all kind of churches out their so if you like contemporary gospel find a church that caters to this type of music . If you like traditional gospel  music find a church that sings that type of music ; A lot of churches I have attended sing all types of gospel music so people who like different types of gospel music can be satisfied.

The same people that say they have activities planned for the entire weekend and they are too busy to go to church will be the same people who asks every Christian to pray for them because they need a breakthrough.

It’s a good thing we don’t serve a God who refuses to answer the prayers of those who don’t attend church. Some people may say ,”Why should I attend church I can sing gospel songs right at home ?”

According to Hebrews 10:25 ,We shouldn’t stop gathering together with other believers , as some of you are doing . Instead,we must continue to encourage each other even more as we see the day of the Lord coming . “ Those are not my words those are the words of God.

People will say all the time , “ Why should I go to church I can just sing and listen to a sermon on the radio plus gas is way too high!” The reason you should go to church is because we as Christians need to be in church so we can encourage one another.

What is simply amazing is that people find the gas money to go to the casino, the club, meetings, the mall, etc.but when it comes to God gas is way too high !That is such a bad mentality to have and that mentality comes straight from Satan.

Satan doesn’t want you to be encouraged anyway he wants you to stay at home and watch hours of Godless programming on television . If their is always something that pops up when it’s time for you to go to church ask yourself, “ Do things usually pop up when I try to go other places besides church ?”

If the answer to that question is no then you know Satan is trying to make you miss church and that’s when you should be trying to get their the most because Satan knows there’s something at church that will help turn your life around. Satan’s job is to make your life a living disaster so when you try to get your life together by finding Jesus and/or finding a good church home he will do everything he can to try to shake your world up.

The point I am trying to make is people make time for what they want to make time for .The same people that find time to go to the club on Saturday night and miss church on Sunday morning will call every church they can think of and ask for a prayer for their “breakthrough”.
