What Do Teens Believe?

posted on

Very few are staunch believers in the paranormal, regardless of religious background. But, those who attend church regularly are less likely to believe in things such as astrology, fortune-tellers, and communicating with the dead. This data was noted recently by Paul Chesser in his CJ Exclusive about the National Study on Youth and Religion, a four-year study being conducted at UNC-Chapel Hill. Chesser’s story was so interesting that the Evangelical Press Association distributed it to its subscribing members. The EPA acts as the Associated Press for Christian newspapers. You can read Chesser’s story at Carolina Journal Online. Click on “Exclusives” and “Past Exclusives,” and then go to the Nov. 8 entry.
