Abstract

What would a conversation between John of Patmos and Jordan of Portland look like? To say it another way, how might Christ’s apocalyptic address to the seven churches of Revelation (Rev 2-3) aid in the faith formation of today’s emerging adults whose worldview has been described as Moralistic Therapeutic Deism? This thesis utilizes biblical and practical theology to address three issues facing emerging adults: the replacement of a love ethic with a tolerance narrative that aids market globalization but harms emerging adults; the problem of mass consumerism; and the coddling of young people with the aim of safety over against a life filled with a willingness to suffer for lasting joy. The thesis concludes with a whimsical conversation between John and Jordan that demonstrates what a mentoring relationship might look like between two people in different stages of their faith development.
