Why Are Young People Leaving the Church?


Part 1



This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis , Ark Encounter, and Creation Museum.


Did you know that over two thirds of skeptics have attended church in the past?

I’ve said for years that there’s a lack of apologetics teaching in churches and homes. Now, because millennials weren’t taught to defend their faith, they’ve been drawn away by the world’s scoffers.

For my co-authored book Already Gone, we asked over one thousand twenty-somethings why they left the church. And a big reason was that they doubted the Bible!

Now, apologetics doesn’t ensure someone won’t leave the faith. But we’ve been commanded to raise our children in the instruction of the Lord and defend the hope we profess.

We need to be obedient in teaching generations … and leaving the results to God.
