I was at a Bible study one evening this week. The teacher shared some statistics about how with people born before 1940, x% were self identified as born again. (Sorry, I did not take notes on his stats.) People born 1940-1960 had a smaller number, then those born after 1960 had a tiny %. The teacher expressed the opinion that proves the church much change or die. One gentleman is a born again former Catholic. He raised this question: It seemed to him that the churches (protestant) had changed tremendously DURING the time the % of saved folks was declining. Wouldn't that mean perhaps the best way to reach folks would be going back to the older ways? edited to add: some thought he was upholding the fact the Catholic church has not changed as much. Since he formally left the Catholic church and joined a protestant church upon conversion, and wants nothing to do with the RCC, I personally doubt that. Needless to say, much discussion. How would you answer him?
