The Trend Continues
It’s official: millennials are doing as they’re told. From the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point.
A new study from the University of San Diego has confirmed what we have suspected all along: the generation of emerging adults is more selfish than the one before. But lest we blame them, the study points out that each generation since the Baby Boomers has cared more about money, less about “developing a meaningful philosophy of life.”
Despite this bad news, I see serious signs of hope from the millennials. Each year at Summit Ministries, we work with Millennials. I see them become hungry to change things for the better and improve the lives of others. This happens when they start to understand that Christianity is more than their private faith, it’s the truth about reality. The relativism they swim in makes them, as one person called them, apatheists. Our culture tells us that life’s biggest questions — about God, truth, and sexuality — are just matters of personal preference. If that’s the case, why care about others? But when they learn truth, watch out. Find out more about the Summit at ThePointRadio.org. I’m John Stonestreet.
