via EEWMagazine/Faith Matters:
If you think the youth of today feel comfortable and confident about witnessing to others about Jesus Christ, you’ll be shocked by new research findings.
According to a Barna Report, “Reviving Evangelism,” nearly half (47%) of Millennials think there is something “wrong” with sharing their faith with someone of a different faith in the hopes of converting them.
While almost all practicing Christians believe that part of their faith means being a witness about Jesus (ranging from 95% to 97% among all generational groups), there is reluctance among the younger generation to do so.
Why is it that they are rejecting the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to “go and make disciples of all nations” according to Matthew 28:16-20?
Well, the research shows they do, in fact, believe that the best thing that could ever happen to someone is for them to know Jesus (94% to 97%). Furthermore, Millennials, in particular, feel properly equipped to share their faith with others.
For instance, almost three-quarters say they know how to respond when someone raises questions about faith (73%), and that they are gifted at sharing their faith with other people (73%). This is higher than any other generational group.
