Is it any wonder that 75% to 95% of the Christian youth leave the church by college? …is it any wonder that Christianity in America and Europe are only shadows of what it use to be? …is it any wonder that Christians are being shut down and called hate speech throughout America and Europe? …is it any wonder that 80% of pastor’s wives wish their husbands would quit the ministry…& the vast majority of pastoral wives say that the most destructive thing that happened to their family was when their husband entered into vocational ministry …so I ask you guys again: is it any wonder?
…is it any wonder that 1,500 pastors a month quit the ministry every month? …is it any wonder that 80% of seminary and bible school graduates who enter into the ministry leave within the first 5 years, never to return again? …is it any wonder that 70% of pastors admit to fighting depression & over 50% of pastor’s wives admit to having severe depression & 80% of pastor’s kids seek professional help for depression? …is it any wonder guys?
With so much name calling (ad hominine attacks while never broaching the subject matter), refusing to admit the obvious (that they can’t prove the BIG 3 [Jesus, god, or hell] as being real), & so many outlandish dogmas (like accept my improvable god or you’re going to hell for EVER)–coming from Christians…is it any wonder Christianity is in such a downward spiral, in America & Europe?
…well let me help you guys out a bit…why do you think at the same time Christian music (like Chris Tomlin, 3rd day, Mercy Me, Hillsong, etc, & like K-Love radio) has exploded in popularity? Zero dogma and ZERO name calling…just love, love, and more love! Wow! …who could argue with that? ..not me!
…and Kurt seems to have instinctively latched on to that and to that I congratulate Kurt and wish his ministry all the success in the world
