debunking the 4% myth

Marko from YS, had a post about Christian Smith’s article. Here is the link for the Smith article.  Come on people. really. There is such a thing as an alaramist Christian, those who paint in black and white and think those that don’t are part of the problem in the world today. One of the premises of the 4% myth is that the church in the US is ten years from disappearing. And that in this generation only 4% of adolescents are making a faith committment before their adults years, compared to 34% of adults who are reported to be committed to Christ. But, in the article, Smith shows where the 4% myth originates from and why it is a myth. There is such a thing as bad statistics, and Christian people of all people should given to truth-telling. Or so, I thought!
