"exclusivistic" Well, that's a new one. Seems time that we hear "complaineristic," for someone whose life revolves around complaining.

Not likely to happen, though. The system of modern government was set up to be complaint-driven, so the most obvious way to grow it is to come up with more complaints and complainers.

why young Christians are leaving the church: churches are overprotective; shallow; anti-science; simplistic about sexuality; exclusivistic, and unfriendly to doubt.

I think the young need to stay with it long enough to see the other sides. I didn’t leave when I was young, however, I did have MY ideas and thoughts and wanted to push them as most of us do. Now what I see from those older and those who have gone on is a faithfulness to God, and doing what they knew best to follow him. It humbles me. So, I see in cases a chip on the shoulder of the young. I think it goes along with the current secular, societal view of the young knowing it all. Running away from the Church and the Lord is not going to bring one closer to God. What is there to run to? The culture??? If you are young and reading this....DO NOT QUIT on your church and God.
