A study about the growing influence of Millennials has revealed a majority of them have a positive opinion about Jesus Christ. However, they apparently don't understand or haven't read what the Bible has to say about sexuality because a whopping 30% of that entire generation now identify as LGBTQ.
The 62-page research report titled New Insights into the Generation of Growing Influence: Millennials In America by George Barna was conducted by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University and the Foundations of Freedom, a platform promoting traditional American Values.
Why Millennials? According to the report, they are the most populous generation in American society today, comprising more than 70 million adults in the U.S. Millennials currently represent close to 4 out of every 10 working-age Americans, and they are also the primary parenting-age segment in the country.
The trend toward LGBTQ identification is especially strong among younger Millennials The study's key findings of this generation include:
— 29% of younger Millennials (ages 18-25) are counted as having some type of mental disorder. Overall, 54% of those surveyed acknowledged some degree of emotional fragility or even mental illness.
— 24 out of every 25 Millennials (96%) lack a biblical worldview.
— 75% say they lack meaning and purpose in life.
— Only one-third claimed to believe in God.
— 39% of younger Millennials ages 18-24 years identify as LGBTQ.
