A Christian pastor recently said that the majority of millennials do not have a Christian worldview and society is “on the verge of having a generation that has completely lost the knowledge of God.”
According to TheBlaze.com, these remarks were made by Mike Sherrard, director of RC College Prep, a high school ministry of Ratio Christi, which is a campus apologetics group.
Speaking on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast,” Sherrard stated, “Seemingly, no young adult has a biblical worldview anymore. They don’t know who God is. Even fundamental things about salvation and heaven and hell and things that are in the category you might argue are Christianity. They have no understanding of these things.”
Sherrard continued, noting that there is much work to be done to bring these young people back to a foundational understanding of God.
“[T]here’s a lot of work to be done because we have so many young adults that do believe in God, but they have very little understanding why they even should believe in God or who this God even is, which makes them of course ripe for the attacks of the militant atheists when they go off to university that offers them one compelling reason why they should leave behind the fairytales of their childhood, and they’re ripe to be harvested in that regard.”
The ministry Sherrard leads, Ratio Christi, has as its mission exactly that: engaging young adults with the truth of the Gospel and showing them why a Christian worldview is important.
