Suffering helps young people stand firm in their Christian faith

Young adulthood has become the religious pit of the life course for most Americans.  Children are more likely to end up committed to Jesus as young-adult believers if their parents integrate Christian faith into daily family life.  Adolescents who are made fun of by peers for their Christianity are more likely to end up as serious believers as young adults.   Family, friends, sex, education, and various types of suffering play significant roles in how successful the next generation of young people will be in avoiding the lukewarm path being trod by many of today’s emerging adults.
