Why do many conservative evangelical kids walk away from Christianity altogether in their 20s? This is the question a friend and I were discussing last night as we swapped stories of 20-somethings we now know who were "on fire for the Lord" as teens but now have an angry disposition toward the church and are agnostic. These are women and men who grew up in church-going, two-parent families in conservative, Republican-loving, Bible-teaching, evangelical churches with well-intended adults loving them the best way they could.
