‘New York Post’ columnist suggests Gen Z is starting to return to God

There was an interesting article in the New York Post recently on how Gen Z is starting to return to God.

Also known as zoomers, Gen Z are generally those born between 1997 and 2012, (13 to 25 years of age).

This is based on two surveys one taken recently by the Springtide Research Institute, which revealed that one third of those between the ages of 18 to 25, believe in God or a higher.

Though these are abysmal numbers, the good news is that it is up nearly 25% from a similar poll in 2021.

Writing for the New York Post, Carrie Sheffield explains:

This is up from about one-quarter in 2021, noted The Wall Street Journal’s Clare Ansberry, writing on polling data from the Springtide Research Institute.

Ansberry reported that in the age of COVID-fueled isolation and canceled dreams, young adults, theologians and church leaders “attribute the increase in part to the need for people to believe in something beyond themselves after three years of loss.”

As a recovered agnostic baptized in December 2017, I’m not surprised. God is in the healing business.

In her article, Sheffield goes on to list the many benefits of faith.

It is definitely worth a read.
