Almost Half of Practicing Christian Millennials Say Evangelism is Wrong

A new Barna study finds that nearly half of Millennials think evangelism is wrong. Yet, they also think evangelism is important, a crucial part of the Christian faith, and that they are gifted at being a witness.

  1. Political correctness rears it’s ungodly head. Millennials have been soaked with the media’s message that everybody gets to believe what they want (it’s true for them) and you can’t challenge their beliefs – even if you are kind. I also think Christians are gun shy pronouncing the reality of sin and death…basically Hell is a reality. It’s not loving to withhold the Gospel of Jesus from doomed sinners, just so they can feel good in this life.

  2. This is really interesting and challenging. I work with millennial Christians (and am one myself). Thanks for sharing this study and bringing to light some specific challenges!

  3. This sounds like a case of what Dan Dennett has astutely noted, simply believing that they believe without actually truly believing.
    Another small step in the inexorable march to secular humanism.

  4. I like the topic. It’s always good to hear the challenges within the faith. I believe Christianity has veered off from the original intent the messiah was proposing with his good news and renewed covenant. Mainly due to political chess moves. The most important thing we should do as believers in God is to read the Bible front to back. Constantly. As far as evangelism is concerned, I believe it was Jordan Peterson’s rule number 6 that put it so simply, “Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world”, or Yeshua who is claimed to have said, “Remove the plank from your eye before your attempt to remove the sliver in your neighbors eye”. There are decent people who evangelize but the intent is to understand the relationship between God and man before attempting to spread the news. Otherwise you’re basically playing that game “telephone” with the word of God and things could get lost within your own understanding of His words if you’re not getting your own house in order you cannot teach others the complexities of His covenants. Study to show yourself approved, a workman rightly dividing the word of truth. Your light will guide people safely to shore it is not necessary to take the light to them and potentially blind them. I love this topic.

  5. Go an make disciples, Jesus said. He said Go, not when you feel like it…. it is our mission as Christians, yet we think saying we are Christians our posting a verse on instrgram would be enough. On the other hand we go to church and do all this fun things and join groups witch our good for builting our faith, and also feels safe. We need boldness to go and speak and reach people who dont know Jesus. How many people have we made descilples?
    Writing this first i point the finger to myself.

  6. It will be interesting to see how these people grow up. There will always be people the eat the naive and I’m afraid there are going to be some very hard lessons before they are 40.
    As for evangelism, it has a very important place in faith. It’s one of the ways we show our zeal for the lord. I do think some Christians could be far more considerate when they do it, though.
