Excellent point about the Millenial's underlying sources of grief (broken homes). ANOTHER reason: mourning for their aborted siblings: 1/3 of the children of baby boomers were aborted. Also: 33% of all Americans are now born out of wedlock (66% for Black, 42% Hispanics) Illegitimate children, children of divorce, growing up in broken homes and mixed families, all have grown up outside the Covenant & are unsure that they are TRULY loved.

Why Are the Millennials Protesting? It's really very simple. 1.) They have been brain-washed by the majority of godless liberal teachers and professors in our schools who were brain-washed by THEIR teachers and professors when they were in school. Unfortunately, it is a vicious cycle that has been going on for at least two generations now, and is only continuing to increase. 2.) Add to that all the godless liberal Television programs and movies that mock Christianity and morality and godliness and instead, endorse the godless liberal agenda. 3.) And then top it off with the fact that the overwhelming majority of our national news media (TV, radio, and print) are godless liberals who make no bones about supporting the liberal agenda. So, it's really is no wonder. Here's a recent, shocking statistic from the "Harvard Institute of Politics" that proves my point. 51% of 18 - 29 year olds say they do NOT support capitalism. However, 33% DO support socialism. In light of these statistics, is it any wonder Bernie Sanders (an outspoken socialist) garnered so much support in the last Presidential election? Unless there is some radical monumental change in the direction our country is headed, we are only a generation away from becoming a socialist country. Sorry to upset your proverbial fruit basket all you "7 Mountain" proponents, but these are the facts.

My belief is that they do indeed care, but they react more out of pity rather than compassion. Helping others out of pity tends to fulfill the needs of one's self, whereas compassion is focused on the ones needing help. We need to teach them the same compassion that our Lord Jesus Christ had for us. Mark 8:2, as well as"many other places in the Gospels, is a good example. The Greek word that is translated as "compassion" gives much insight into the deep feelings that Jesus has for us.
