Why are we losing so many of our Baptist youth today? The answer to this question can be stated in one word; THEOLOGY. And, of course, the system of theology to which we acquiesce determines our doctrine. And our doctrine greatly influences our conduct as Christians. The system of theology we follow determines things such as: what church we attend, what philosophies our children are taught, what colleges they will attend, who they will marry, etc. Knowing this to be true, we can accurately link the problems of our youth today back to theology.
