HopeTracker| Gabe Lyons is the founder of Q, a website that acts as a forum for people to explore ideas about Christianity’s role in the world today. In what some are calling “post-Evangelicalism,” a revised Christian mentality is making its way into the public forum.
The American Religious Identification Study released in 2009 reported that the percentage of people that identify as Christian fell 10 percent between 1990 and 2008, from 86 to 76 percent. And a 2010 poll from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life reported that 26 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 say they are unaffiliated with a religion.
On a quest for relevancy, the young Christians meeting at a Q conference recently, cited educational inequality, poverty, genocide prevention and nuclear non-proliferation as core issues. Noticeably absent were abortion and gay marriage. Read on at ABC News: New Christianity Emerges with Youth.
