Here’s another article on the subject from the Washington Times.  My favorite part of this article comes from D.A. Carson:

D.A. Carson, a pre-eminent evangelical theologian and scholar, said there is no doubt that many young Christians are “more flexible today and much less shaped by one or two ideological touchstones.”

“I don’t know that it’s maturation so much as generational development,” said Mr. Carson, a New Testament professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, in Deerfield, Ill.

“In some cases, there’s maturation, and in some cases, there’s merely dilution of conviction, or spreading of concern over more issues,” Mr. Carson said.

Carson, a wise observer of the times, states it well in my opinion.  May our convictions not become diluted about abortion, environmental issues, social justice, etc.
