Why are millennials leaving church: Let's make it 5 contrasting views

(I added below one more post from Scot McKnight. He says there is no compelling evidence that millennials are leaving the church any more than in any other generation of young adults)

There has been an online debate going on this week, sparked by a post by Rachel Held Evans about why millennial are leaving church. All three of these blog authors make good points. Food for thought.

Is Miss Evans primarily addressing a specific problem with evangelicalism? Is this a deeper trend of secularization? Is it the ongoing demise of Christendom as Bevere implies? I really don't know.
