60-90% OF CHRISTIAN KIDS WILL
LOSE THEIR FAITH DURING COLLEGE
Are you a Christian parent who takes their faith seriously? Do you worry about your kids keeping their faith in a world that is becoming increasingly hostile to Christianity? In addition to prayer, don’t you wish there was something more you could do about it?
You are not alone. Other Christians are worried too. And for good reason. For a Christian parent, the idea of their kids losing their faith is a terrifying thought. In a way, leaving the faith can be a fate worse than death. In fact, the absolute biggest fear of any serious Christian parent is that their child will leave their faith when they get older.
So for parents who take their faith seriously, making sure their kids keep their faith is a TOP PRIORITY.
If you feel the same way, then I need to warn you about some very BAD NEWS.
In fact a number of studies have shown that 60-90% of Christian kids lose their faith in college. (For just one example, see the 2006 Barna study entitled; "Most Twenty somethings Put Christianity on the Shelf.")
It happens all the time. That’s what the numbers say, and the numbers don’t lie.
One big reason why is because the environment at most colleges in the United States and Europe is EXTREMELY HOSTILE TO CHRISTIAN BELIEF.
This really shouldn't be much of a surprise, since THE TYPICAL COLLEGE IS FULL OF EDUCATED LIBERALS WHO LOATH WESTERN CULTURE AND DESPISE CHRISTIANITY.
These people LOVE to teach things that directly or indirectly UNDERMINE THE CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW.
This is the honest truth, and that's why Christian parents who naively send their untrained kids off to college, expecting them to come out with their faith intact, are actually flirting with disaster. In fact...
Yep, your kids will be flat-out blindsided with arguments against Christianity they've never heard before.
They are going to hear things like the New Testament is all based on a myth, that Jesus was just a normal guy like us, and a host of other things that PULL THE RUG RIGHT OUT FROM ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN BELIEF.
Now I know your kids are learning a lot of important subjects in their pre-college years. But quite frankly,those standard subjects won't help them one darn bit when it comes to what matters most: keeping their faith. (Think about it. What good is being able to do cite geography stats going to be when some impressive sounding university professor tells your kid that "scholars" have proved that "the Bible is just full of myths and stories"?)
Think about this scenario...
Imagine your good kid standing there being interrogated by some "atheist critic" determined to undermine their belief.
What will your kid say?
Will they be able to articulate an intelligent answer to this public cross examination, or will they be just left standing there - feeling TOTALLY EMBARRASSED WITH NOTHING TO SAY?
Usually it's the latter my friends.
And then things get worse. After being humiliated about their beliefs, they will start to resent the fact that they have been raised to believe in some "Christian fairy tale". They will feel offended over the fact that they've been raised with a belief system that doesn't seem to be able to hold up the slightest bit of intellectual scrutiny.
And then here comes the next logical step. They begin to doubt their faith. They begin to wonder what good reasons are there for thinking their faith is true, and if it's not true, then why can't they go out and have all of the same fun that everyone else is having?
And the next thing you know...
Now imagine all of your hard work – all of the sacrifices you've made as a parent. ALL OF THAT EFFORT IS NOW GONE AND WASTED after a short time in college or the real world.
Those sweet kids who once prayed with fervor now no longer believe that God exists or that Christianity is true. Now they tell you they think belief in Jesus is like believing in Santa Claus.
Sad. Very sad.
All of that hope you had for your kids has now gone down the toilet because some skeptic has pulled the rug right out from underneath your child's faith. And what really makes things worse is that...
If only your kids were trained in what to say to these critics. IF ONLY THEY WERE TRAINED IN THE INTELLECTUAL SIDE OF CHRISTIANITY MAYBE NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE EVER HAPPENED. If they had been given a proper Christian intellectual formation they would have known that there are good answers to those questions.
Now you're probably saying you don't know how to do this, and that's okay, it’s not your fault.
This is what I do, so help is on the way.
It was precisely for this reason that I created the CHRIST 101: HOW TO DEFEND THE CHRISTIAN FAITH PROGRAM.
Christ 101 is the first complete, full-blown, semester long, multimedia course specifically made to address the problem of using reason and evidence to establish the truth of Christianity.
This Thing Is Big!!
With over 3 years in production and containing contributions from 15 top scholars, Christ 101 is a massive program that consists of 28 lessons totaling up to nearly 14 hours of fun, engaging, and educational instruction.
Building on centuries of wisdom from the intellectual giants of the Christian tradition, this program is a wealth of information that will help forge you into a sharp, savvy, well-spoken and articulate defender of the Christian faith.
Think of this as a course in "mental jiu jitsu." A course that teaches you how to neutralize the attacks from atheists, skeptics, and other unbelievers.
I've gathered the best information I could find from scores of books and articles written in defense of the Christian faith, organized it, shot it all on HD video, edited it with attractive graphics and animation, and compressed all of that information down into this simple step-by-step course for you.
This really is a top notch, no holds barred, flat-out awesomecourse on how to defend the Christian Faith!
And the reason why this is important is, as a Christian, we think you’ll agree that ultimately all that matters is that you and your loved ones do not depart from their faith. This life is short, but eternity is forever.
Look, faith is a treasure that is worth investing some time in and today that means learning how to intelligently discuss it with unbelievers.
So you need to arm yourself and your kids with a first rate program in Christian apologetics and clear out all the mental roadblocks, falsehoods, misunderstandings, misinformation and confusion that prevent people from taking faith seriously.
“Scott Sullivan is one of the best kept secrets in the Catholic Church and is a breath of fresh air. When I see all these effeminate men in the body of Christ, it is good to meet someone like Scott who is normal, tough, physical and loves JESUS.
He’s the yoked out & buffed out version of Peter Kreeft. This brother needs some exposure. His presentations are going to take the Catholic Church by storm. He is the real deal.”
Dr. Scott Sullivan makes an airtight case for the beauty and objective truth of Christianity. With surgical precision and breathtaking clarity, Christ 101: The Evidence for Christianity is a formidable weapon for the mind that followers of Christ can use to defend the faith with passion, conviction, and authority. This program is comprehensive in its breadth and scope, and is very accessible at all levels of interest. Very highly recommended!”

"Scott Sullivan's Christ 101 course does what Catholic apologists, catechists, and teachers need to do today: start from the ground up to explain and defend the reasonableness and relevance of the Church's answer to the problems of human existence. Almost every Catholic stands to learn something from this course. Highly recommended."

"Professor Scott Sullivan has done a great job with Christ 101. The lectures are incisive and broad, combining philosophy, history, and archeology as they relate to theological reflection. In addition to being technologically well-developed, as well as drawing on the contributions from well-known professors, Sullivan's own natural and engaging style brings the enjoyment of being in the classroom with a great professor."
