Statistics gone wild

Check out this article by Christian Smith on Christianity Today's website:

I received the very piece of propaganda described in this article, and I was angered and frustrated by it. What ever happened to the gates of hell not prevailing against Christ's church?

Matt,
Great post. I have heard that statistic come up and wondered about it. It's good to see where it came from. That's a good reminder for me not to be sold on any view based on statistics alone. Basically, the urgency to reach this generation needs to come from the mouth of Jesus. If his commands to make disciples are not enough for us, then woe to us.
Thanks Matt.
Peace,
Rick
