A couple of essays on millennials in the last few weeks.
First, on the false gospel of nice. The author (Daniel Darling) questions the apocalyptic future for evangelicalism some see. Youth are not leaving, at least not in ways that threaten the future. Moreover, he suggests faithfulness to Jesus might involve taking some tough positions. I think tone has been a problem with this second issue. Too often we’ve been culture warriors who seem to like the battle. But still, I don’t think popularity is a certain path to a faithful future.
And here, Rolling Stone explores the millennials sexual revolution. Evangelicals should take note and think about what this cultural setting means, especially for those who grow up in this culture. Warning: some tough and fairly graphic discussions.
