There is a crisis facing Christianity in America. Both Christian and secular studies show that many professing Christian teens and young adults are leaving the church, forsaking their Christian heritage and turning to the ways of the world. But since they have grown up in Christian families, attended Christian churches, and even graduated from Christian schools, what is the cause of this exodus?

In Words without Knowledge, author Steve MacFarland offers a biblical answer to the problem of believers being drawn away from their faith, and he presents an easy-to-understand solution that is clearly revealed in Scripture for those who have “ears to hear.” The key is to be found in understanding something about the nature of truth, and MacFarland shows how if we were more diligent in teaching our youth the nature God’s truth, then perhaps far fewer would stray from their Christian foundation.
It has often been said that knowledge is everything, but knowledge must be a knowledge of truth. Although it is impossible for humans to fully understand the thoughts and ways of our amazing, infinite creator, God can do the impossible and has chosen to gift His children with the truth about His ways and plans. It is time now, more than ever, for God’s children to embrace this gift and build upon a foundation of truth so that they are not led astray.
