25% of Millenials Who Live at Home Don't Work OR Study

Not too many years ago, men would leave their parents home at 15 or 16, marry a wife, homestead a farm and start raising a family....all the while doing their best to survive the hardships of life.

Today, it's not uncommon for 30 year old men to live in their parents basement, play video games all day, meet their friends for drinks and maybe even have a few girls who provide "friends with benefits". Their mom still makes them food, does their laundry and maybe is even happy to have them home for companionship?

It's also not uncommon for 25-30 year old women to live at home.....maybe with a baby they conceived with a friend?

A life of leisure, free of bosses and bills, sure sounds like the dream — and it turns out millions of millennials are living it. But don't congratulate them yet. They're doing it under their parents' roof and not necessarily by choice. 

About a third of 18- to 34-year-olds in the U.S. live at home, the Census Bureau reported on Wednesday. That includes college dormitories. Among 25- to 34-year-olds living at home, one in four is neither enrolled in school nor working. That's 2.2 million people, a small percentage of the nation's more than 70 million millennials but a striking figure nonetheless.

More 18- to-34-year-olds live with a parent than with a spouse, according to the report, The Changing Economics and Demographics of Young Adulthood: 1975–2016. That's a major shift from the 1970s, when young people were more than twice as likely to live with a spouse. Young adults today are also likelier to be enrolled in college or graduate school than their counterparts in the '70s. 

Most of those who live at home but neither work nor study have a high school diploma or less, and about a fifth have a child. Half are white, and the majority are male. About a quarter have a disability. 

"Almost 9 in 10 young people who were living in their parents’ home a year ago are still living there today, making it the most stable living arrangement for young adults," the report said. "In 2005, the majority of young people lived independently in their own household (either alone, with a spouse, or an unmarried partner), which was the predominant living arrangement in 35 states. By 2015—just a decade later—only six states had a majority of young people living independently."


"But Dennis, what does this have to do with prophecy?"

Think about it.....what did God say?

Matthew 19
4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

So what does Satan want to do?  He wants to destroy the family.

Destroy marriage, have bastard kids by the millions, live with your parents and do nothing, (slothful) make people believe that marriage between one man and one woman is old fashioned and unnecessary.

In America today, few people believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of it would seem that Satan's work is almost done here.

And we all know what happens once the foundation is destroyed....

Luke 6
But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
