Are You Protected?

Many young Christians lose their faith while in college. I have always suspected that some of them would claim science as a cause—science debunks religion, evolution is seen as a Bible-stopper, and so on. A recent Pew Research Center report confirms my suspicions:

About half of current religious "nones" who were raised in a religion (49%) indicate that a lack of belief led them to move away from religion. This includes many respondents who mention "science" as the reason they do not believe in religious teachings, including one who said "I'm a scientist now, and I don't believe in miracles." Others reference "common sense," "logic" or a "lack of evidence" – or simply say they do not believe in God.

This is one of the reasons why Salvo can be such a valuable resource to students. We dedicate ourselves to answering such questions and to showing that there's more than one side to these issues. (Examples from Salvo: Blinded by Science? Don't Be; That's Just the New Atheists Masking Their Faith Choice; Believe Science Has All the Answers? Evolutionary Biologist Austin Hughes Says, Open Your Eyes; and Sci-Fact or Sci-Fi? What We Won't Learn from Hyped-Up Science News Headlines.)

So, as Sean McDowell in Salvo asked recently:

College-Bound High-School Graduates: Are you prepared for the spiritual, relational, and moral challenges that come up after high school? As excited as you probably are (and should be!) about going away to college, please realize that you are about to leave the comforts of home-cooked meals, finances covered by your parents, and the spiritual and relational support you have counted on for the past eighteen years. Your world is about to change radically.

Now is a good time to arm yourselves as you start or go back to college! Read Salvo: We are currently offering three back-to-school offers.

1. Special Student Rate: Only $15.99 for a years subscription. That's four issues plus online access to the Salvo digital archives.

2. Special Campus Ministry Staff Worker rate: A FREE 1-year subscription!

3. A generous donor is offering FREE subscription to the students of any professor who requires his or her students to read Salvo for class assignments. If you would like to sign up your students, write jmk@fsj.org and we will set you up with a special code they can use for FREE. Students: tell your professors about this special offer!
