Young Christians Becoming Impatient

10.06.11 | Jeremy Miller

There's a new report out that young christians aren't waiting anymore...that's the implication in this month's issue of "relevant" magazine that claims young, unmarried christians are having premarital sex almost as much as their non-christian peers. The article features a study conducted by the national campaign to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy. 80 percent of unmarried evangelical young adults (18 to 29) say they have had sex... that's slightly less than 88 percent of unmarried adults as a whole. The article says the saturation of sex in popular culture, the prevalence of pornography and a popular "do what feels good philosophy"... has influenced many young christians not to wait until their married.
