Youth-Driven Culture

Emphasis on Youth?

The more I learn about CWM and its grip on the worship styles of Christian churches, the more it seems that our culture's emphasis on the youth, particularly, "reaching the youth" arises.

Here's a useful commentary:

Up crops our old friend, "Moralistic Therapeutic Deism," something we've encountered before.

That term may even be too generous; I'd take it a step farther and propose that we've allowed market forces (the commercial apparatus that thrives on disposable income and poor buying decisions) to dictate how we regard the instruction of our young.
