Evangelical Protestant teens are more religious than other teens
Evangelical Protestant teenagers are more religious than other teens, a recent survey indicates. Compared to mainline Protestants and Catholics, they are more sure that God exists. In addition, more evangelicals are absolutely certain that God exists than their counterparts. In addition, they tend to use religious teachings as a guide for ethical decisions. Here’s what the survey findings mean for evangelical teens and parents.
The survey found that a majority of Evangelical Protestant teenagers say there is only one true religion, a finding which differs significantly from those of other religions. Although two-thirds of evangelical Protestants identify as “nones,” fewer mainline Protestants share this belief. Some teens who identify as “nones” say there’s no truth to any religion. However, it’s not clear how this research relates to evangelical teenagers.
Interestingly, the study also found that while three-quarters of teenagers attend religious services because their parents want them to, only 26% attend religious services voluntarily. On the other hand, more than half of evangelical Protestant teens say they regularly attend a religious service. This difference in attendance can be attributed to different levels of certainty. Nevertheless, teens can still identify with the same religious tradition as their parents.
Evangelical Protestant teens feel a deep sense of spiritual peace and well-being
Evangelical Protestant teens report feeling a deep sense of spiritual peace and well being. According to Du Mez, the movement was founded in 1848 by a group of evangelical leaders, including John Wesley, George Whitefield, and John Stott. Evangelicals were seeking a more direct connection with God, which led them to rally against threats of radical Islam, feminism, gay rights, and Democratic rule in the White House. This movement is the most effective antidote to a growing number of modern-day societal and social problems.
In terms of belief in God, evangelical teens differ from their counterparts in almost every way. For example, their belief in God is higher than that of mainline Protestants and Catholics. Furthermore, they are more certain that God exists. Seven in ten of them are absolutely certain that God exists. Those of other religions are less likely to feel this way. For Evangelical teenagers, the religious aspect is very important.
Some people can devote themselves to their faith as children, but when they are adults, they face problems that have shaped their belief systems. They grapple with the inconsistencies of the church and the Bible and discover alternative beliefs that are surprising. Others feel as if their world is falling apart. Whatever their reason for rejecting religion, it is important to discuss the faith of the person you’re trying to reach.
