A new study from the California-based firm Barna Group, which compiles data on Christian trends in American culture, has revealed a staggering number of American millennials think evangelism is wrong.
The report, commissioned by the discipleship group Alpha USA, showed a whopping 47 percent of millennials — born between 1984 and 1998 — “agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith.”

By comparison, 27 percent of Gen X-ers, 19 percent of Boomers and 20 percent of Elders felt the same way. This new study makes millennials the most evangelism-averse generation on record.

musicman: Thank you for the welcome message. When I read that verse it made me think of the verse "Perservere for His Names sake..." I have always been inspired by that Verse.
