On Young People Leaving Their Home and Their Church . . . and the Church

With the recent flare of discussion about young adults leaving the church tied to Barna's research release, I think some words from William Still (posted by Ligon Duncan) are worth passing on. Here's a snippet:
It is where Christians pathetically put their trust in external techniques and artificial stratagems that young folk go astray. Nothing takes the place of the realism of holy living and secret wrestling before God in prayer for our youngsters. We must commit them to God so utterly that we dare not interfere or tamper with their precious souls.
