WHY YOUNG PEOPLE ARE LEAVING THE CHURCH? 

Khangno lakpan ngaihsut kaihkhopna: 1. Kitonpih ding lawm ding neilo

2. Lunglut huai salo

3. Leitung lunggulhna lianzaw

4. Pasian itna kiam semsem

5. Kizepzia sanglua ta #Fashion

6. Kum tawh kisai a laklawh kisa

7. Biakpiakna paizia amau lunggulhzia hilo

Biakinn pawlkhat ah khangno kikhawm zah etpakna:

Ao Baptist Church 20%

Chumukedima Police Baptist 10%

Konyak Baptist Church 20%

Sumi Baptist Church 20%

Mizoram Mainline Church 80%

Tangkhul Baptist Shillong 42%

Bang hang Mizo te khangno 100 omlak ah 80% bang kikhawm lai hiam? 

Mizoramten kikhop pen mihing ngeina zuih(culture) in nei uh ahih manin kikhop tha nuam uh hi. 

Nagaland pen lungkham huai mahmah hi.
North East India ah khangnote kikhop nuam nawnlohna hang

1. Generation gap

2. Classism/Casteism

3. Irrelevance

4. Church structure

5. Ignorance
A kicingzaw in

1. Generation gap:

Generation gap lian mahmah hi. 

khanghun kituaklo, i leitung zat dan kibanglo, innkuan sung nangawn ah. 

Mental gap, ngaihsutna kibansam tua pen khangnote amau khang ah technology tawh piang khawm uh ahih manin, hih technology khang a teng khalote tawh kituak theilo uh hi.
2. Classism: 

A nei leh neilo kikal, sangzaw niamzaw hauzaw zawngzaw kikal a kideidanna, midangte a ding a nuammawh thei omte hangin.
3. Irrelevance: 

Kum 5 sung kansuina Barna group President David Kinnman (barna.org) 

pan in muhkhiatte
1. Church seems to be over protective. A kikhawm lo peuhmah nungtolh, Pasian umlo dan in koih pahpah thei hi. Christian demonize everything outside the church. Khangnoten biakna nuam a saklohzia a gen ciang zong limsak deuh ding hoih hi.
2. Shallow:

Gen-Y (1981-2000) 

Ka kizepdan en ken la, ka lungsim en in ci mite hi uh hi.
Gen -X (1962-1980)

Na hahsep, lawhcin sawm teitei mite ahi hi. 
Millenial (2001-tuhun ciang)

Lup hun theilo, thawh hun theilo

Teens and twenty somethings’ experience of Christianity is Shallow

Ahih khat peuh uh lunglut takin hih uh hi. Na peuhpeuh pen kineihkhem utlo khang, I want to be real. Amau emotion zong pulak ngam uh hi. 

I Christian na pen dai sa lua, a taktak a nungta nuam khang ahi uh hi. Biakinn sung pen lunglut huai salo lua uh hi. Khangno kikhop pen lunglut huai mahmah leh deihhuai, Khangham kikhop tawh kibang ahih khak loh ding. 
3. Lai Siangtho leh Sceince pen kituak takpi hiam? 

Lai Siangtho in science pen ana gen cian lo lua ahih manin, science a um mite a dingin haksa sa uh hi. 
Hypothesis 

Science pen factual leh proof theih ahi hi. Mihing tangthu kigelh zawh kum 6000 valta hi. Zawng tawh mihing sisan DNA kinaihlo a, Vok khawng tawh mihing Lungtang leh kal khawng kituak zaw hi. Nawitui lamah Sakkol tawh mihing a kinaih mahmah hi. Leitung bem hi cih Zeisu kammal pan zong kimu thei hi. Rapture pen hun kibang ahih zongin ihmu laite a dingin zan hun a ding lokuante a dingin sun hun leh annsu laite a dingin zinghun cihte timezone kibanglo cihna pan leitung a lum ahihna kithei hi.
4. Mi i et dan peuhpeuh a nuntak lui tawh et pahpah pen khangten zadah uh hi. Itna tawh hilh hilo a Judgemental thukhen khum. Mi muhkhelhna vive tawh en, kisiangthosakte pen khangthakten zadah hi. Biakinn pen exclusive, i pawlpi min nangawn in mi hong kikhawm ding leh kikhawmlo ding khen pah thei hi. I thupi sak nate in mi na huai lo thei hi. Biakinn pen lakh tampi a bawl in, i zatna tawm mahmah lai hi, tua zah mantam a bawl pen mibangzah in hong zang ta hiam?

6. The church feels unfriendly to those who doubts. 

Sia te ngaihsutna tawh kituaklo kampauna ahih leh dawm vetlo in thuk pahpah.

AHANG DANGTE:

1. Pulpit pen politics genna in kizang lua

2. Isolationism: midangte welcome lo, pau dang zong welcome vetlo cih bang pawlpi, ei aw kaih lian bek mah thupi sa, ei kituam koihna

3. Stagnant: Kikhop dan kikhek ngeilo, i hih ngeingei pen zui den, kikhekna om ngeilo, the church appears to be old and stagnant, pawlpi lian ten khangno kikhop leh khangham kikhop kibangsaklo uh hi.

4. Young Evangelicals Feel They Have to Choose Between Their Intellectual Integrity And Their Faith

5. And they are tired of pretending

A kilim neih pen cimtakta, ahihna bangbang hivet leh

6. We’ve been hurt

Pawlpi in liamsak nasak, khangnoten telkhial thei.

YOUTH MINISTRY THAT HAS LASTING IMPACT

II Timothy 4:6-8

KOI CI LEH KHANGNOTE BIAKINN AH SAM KIK DING

Kizepna pen midangte a dingin a kilawmciang mah tawh kizep lel ding

Khanthakten khanghamte iplah, khanghamten khangthakte iplah 

Generation gap hangin, hilh cian un, kitelsiamlohna piang baih hi. Nidang ciang nang zong khangham hiveve ding na hi. 

Nidang ciang coat suit silh a thugen zong kikhek leuleuta hi. Khangno vai ah coat silh sangin, t-shirt leh jeans tawh biakpiakna kizang zaw ta hi.

Pulpit pen kihem khia pianpianta, pulpit tung a ding pa/nu pen biakinn sunga midang omte sangin a siantho zawkna om tuanlo hi.

I phone neihte pen ei hong uk ding hilo in, eimah in i phone i uk zawh ding kisam hi.
