New Study: Low Impact Faith Among Teens

Most young people in Britain consider Christianity irrelevant to their lives, but they are not as hostile towards religion as their parents’ generation, finds a 5-year Church of England study. Reporting on the study The Christian Post says that young people were more likely to put their faith in friends, their family or themselves than in God. For the majority, religion and spirituality was irrelevant for day-to-day living. Among the infrequent churchgoers, 28% said belonging to a Christian youth group had made them think more about the purpose of life. 30% said it had made them think more about God, 26% Jesus, and 54% about what was right and wrong.
