Conventional wisdom says teens don't like church because they find it boring. So they must be lured in with entertainment.
So claims a recent article in Leadership Journal. And those of us in youth ministry have responded... often shying away from discipleship and truth in favor of making Jesus "cool."
The result of this trend, according to sources documented in the article:
Many teens are now unable to differentiate between the gospel and the pop-culture box they receive it in.
God forgive us.
