47% of American Youth Believe Evangelism is Wrong


47 percent of American youth (millennial) believe that it’s “wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes they will one day share the same faith.

Meanwhile, that 94% of practicing American Christian agreed that “the best thing that could ever happen to someone is for them to know Jesus.

These reports came from a study conducted by the Barna Group entitled “Reviving Evangelism”. The Barna Group is a research center that tracks faith and spirituality in American life.

Another study by Barna Group disclosed that part of their unwillingness to share their faith seems to be that the generation entitle millennials believe that people are more likely now to be offended by someone who shares their faith.

Globally, enthusiasm for evangelism is also decreasing even in churches as most Christians are now very apologetic about sharing their faith whilst anti-evangelism laws are being enacted in some countries of the world.

United States president-elect Joe Biden has vowed to pass the Equality Act within his first 100 days in office. The bill’s provisions add the categories of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the list of protected classes in the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Some Christians describe the act as the most invasive threat to religious liberty ever proposed in America.

Many Christians claim they reject all forms of invidious discrimination and that they believe that all persons, including those who identify as LGBT, are made in God’s image and deserve respect, kindness, and neighborliness.

Meanwhile, they clarified that this truth does not necessitate that Christians will bow bow to the ‘unGodly’ sexual revolution trending now. “No Christian who believes that the Bible’s depiction of created reality is both sacred and also authoritative can accept the Equality Act’s underlying tenets”, said Andrew Walker, a Christian writer.
