Jerry Johnston Interviews Thomas Sinkinson on the Faith of Young Adults in Britain18 August 2016
With the percentage of nones rocketing among young adults in Britain, the young man sitting before me was an anomaly. Thomas Sinkinson’s faith in Christ did not require him to relinquish logic or science, rather, he recognized they worked in cooperation. Jokingly, I asked Thomas if he had been forced or brainwashed into confessing Christianity. Thomas told me,
“No, I think that the only reason – well, there’s many reasons I became a Christian and being brought up in a Christian family really helped that. But I feel as if, the earth we live in today is illogical, that it just came out of nothing. I think that a lot of my belief comes from science and from logical stand points. So I don’t think that anything I believe is forced upon me. I think that I believe because of logic, science, and the teachings I have been taught growing up.”
The constant barrage of ideas through various mediums of technology often makes discipleship of youth difficult. Cristie Jo and I recognize the power of technology, we want to harness that power in spreading the supremacy of the None other (Acts 4.12).
