really did just walk away from the churches they have been part of for years? What if, when someone younger decided the older members should now turn over the reins to the younger folks and shut up, or decided to "let the churches doing what the older folks want just die", the older folks got fed up and just left? Obviously they could start new churches and not let the younger folks join But seriously, what if everyone over 60 took their tithe, their time, and their talent out of these churches that the younger ones seem to think should be turned over to them? How long would or could they last? Would this improve the cause of Christ any? There seems to be a stream of very vitriolic ageism that want to be handed thriving churches with nice buildings right out of seminary. Or they are laymen saved all of maybe 15 minutes who are now going to tell the seasoned saints how stupid and useless they are. I would encourage the babes in Christ to consider what their church would look like without anyone over 60 participating and donating.
