Brannon Howse is promoting a new book by Worldview Weekend speaker Ken Ham, Britt Beemer and Todd Hillard entitled, Already Gone: Why your kids will quit church and what you can do to stop it. This crew went to conservative churches NOT LIBERAL! to poll them as to why their kids are leaving their churches in droves! They also found that these conservative churches need to be reclaimed!! Brannon Howse says: “their book that confirm that the church needs to be reclaimed before we even attempt to reclaim the culture.”
Here are some reasons put forth from the book:
A mass exodus is underway. Most youth of today will not be coming to church tomorrow. Nationwide polls and denominational reports are showing that the next generation is calling it quits on the traditional church. And it’s not just happening on the nominal fringe; it’s happening at the core of the faith.
- Only 11 percent of those who have left the Church did so during the college years. Almost 90 percent of them were lost in middle school and high school. By the time they got to college they were already gone! About 40 percent are leaving the Church during elementary and middle school years!
- If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of those who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; it will only take a couple years before their bodies are absent as well.
- The numbers indicate that Sunday school actually didn’t do anything to help them develop a Christian worldview…The brutal conclusion is that, on the whole, the Sunday school programs of today are statistical failures.
- Part of the concern is that the mere existence of youth ministry and Sunday school allows parents to shrug off their responsibility as the primary teachers, mentors, and pastors to their family.
So Brannon Howse announces the answer that is above all other answers! “The answer to this crisis is Biblical worldview and apologetics training.”
Yes! Finally we have someone in the Church and for the Church who will be our Head and lead us!
Brannon Howes continues with more of the answer!
“I founded Worldview Weekend in 1993 and all our conferences had an admission fee until three years ago. Because the church in America has largely neglected worldview and apologetic training and because the only hope for America is Biblical Christians that will oppose the evil that is washing over our nation, Worldview Weekend has been holding free Worldview Weekend Rallies for the past three years.”
That is what the Church needs today! We need more Worldview Weekend Rallies to save us!
Praise God that Brannon Howse is in the House of God! And soon the Church will be so pure we will not need Jesus anymore!
