Young Americans Today are More Skeptical & Resistant to Christianity

As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. I was surfing the net and came across several articles containing the following excerpt written by a non-Muslim.

“Young Americans today are more skeptical and resistant to Christianity than were people of the same age just a decade ago, says a new study. Negative perceptions toward the Christian faith have outweighed the positive as a growing percentage of younger Americans associate with a faith outside Christianity.”“Only 16 percent of non-Christians aged 16 to 29 years old said they have a “good impression” of Christianity, according to a report released Monday by The Barna Group. A decade ago, the vast majority of Americans outside the Christian faith, including young people, felt favorably toward Christianity’s role in society. Young people have an even lesser positive impression of evangelicals. Only 3 percent of 16- to 29-year-olds who are not of the Christian faith express favorable views of evangelicals. In the previous generation, 25 percent of young people had positive associations toward evangelicals.”

“Among other common impressions, 23 percent of young non-Christians said “Christianity is changed from what it used to be” and “Christianity in today’s society no longer looks like Jesus.” Young born-again Christians were just as likely to say the same (22 percent).”

***End Quote***

Could this be one of the many results of changing what was revealed to them? No wonder it no longer “looks like Jesus” (peace be upon him). Allaah said:

فَوَيْلٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَكْتُبُونَ الْكِتَابَ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ

“Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands…”

Allaahu Aa’lam.
