Bible Blessings® Christian Gifts Ring True with Millennials March 04 2014
Bible Blessings® Christian Gifts wants to know, if you’re part of the millennial generation (born in the early 1980s to mid-1990s), what message do you want to send to people to convey who you are and what you value? How do you share your Christian gifts in a world that sometimes seems hostile towards Christianity?
How Millennials View Religion
In an article published in just the last few years, a young author lamented the fact that she felt she had to hide her religious beliefs from some of her friends. Unfortunately, the young woman is not alone when it comes to her beliefs. A recent study revealed some interesting statistics about millennials’ attitudes regarding religion:
- 6 out of 10 millennials dropped out of church at some point
- 49% choose a church because they enjoy the preaching and teaching
- 63% would leave a church because they disagree with the teaching
- Only 1 in 10 attend church because they feel a need to be a part of community
How Millennials View Their Role in Society
Conversely, a Gallup poll found that today’s young people tend to be more traditional in both lifestyle and values than their parents. Today’s young people are far less likely to engage in unhealthy habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol. They also are more likely to wait to have sex until they get married.
How Millennials Share Their Gifts
The millennial generation tends to feel a deeper sense of social responsibility. They want to not only engage in volunteer activities, but also want to purchase products and services from companies that practice corporate responsibility – both for the environment and for their communities. Millennials share their spiritual gifts through their purchases and through their pay it forward lifestyle. Today’s millennial appears destined to make a strong impact on religion and spirituality in the decades ahead.
