Saving The New Generation
“My son, keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”
During the past several decades I have been very disturbed as to how the new generations of young people are becoming, as they are losing the true Christian values that I was taught as I was growing up. We are seeing a generation of young people who are being bombarded with a society of unrestrained proliferation of pornography, abortion, homosexuality, pedophilia, other deviant forms of sex, gambling, alcohol, drugs, and just about any kind of sinful activity and rebellion to God and His Word that you can name. Sadly, I see the evidence of this each day, as these young adults and kids have grown up their entire life exposed to pornography on TV, the computer, in games, in their music, in advertising, and in the movies. That is why most young adults see nothing wrong with having sex outside of marriage, and have a perverted view of this gift from God. This group has also been exposed to women having the freedom to make the choice to go to a local clinic and kill her unborn baby. They have been told since birth that it is a woman’s right to do whatever she wants with her body. They’ve been told that it isn’t really a baby until it is born. Having an abortion is simply a choice that is available if a sexual relationship results in a woman becoming pregnant. It is a minor inconvenience that costs a couple hundred dollars and a few days of discomfort. This is a group that sees nothing wrong with gambling. They have grown up being told that gambling is simply a form of entertainment, a way to go out and have a good time. After all, when they buy a lottery ticket, they are told it helps the state pay for education. Now gambling is not only socially acceptable, but is so accessible, you don’t even have to leave your home any more. This group has also been a primary target for the homosexual activists. Through the media and the schools, those who promote the sin of homosexuality have targeted our young people to indoctrinate them with the lies that 10% of the population engage in homosexual acts and that this is how God created some people, therefore there is nothing wrong with it. The main reason for all of this is that most young adults have very little interaction with their parents. Mom and dad are busy working, living their own lives, and the amount of time they actually spend with their children each day is really minimal. Church is usually only a few hours a week at best. I hate to say it, but even in those few hours they are in church they rarely hear someone with the guts to call sin what it is and preaching unadulterated Biblical Truth. In the meantime, these young adults are being pounded 24/7 with the lies of the world every place they go and in every way possible. Through their friends, through their schools, through their teachers, through the media, through the messages they are receiving from the world around them, virtually every second of every day these young adults are being bombarded with the lie’s of this world, and rarely if ever are hearing Biblical Truth. Their views on life, what they believe, what they see as “truth,” are all being shaped by the lies of this world and not the only Truth there is, God’s Word This is the generation we must reach for Christ since they are now starting to have children and it will be yet another generation who lives void of God and Biblical Truth. We need to be praying today for God to help us reach this generation. This is why we must get serious about getting back into the marketplace and taking that Word to this generation since they are not going to come to church, they are not watching Christian TV, they are not listening to Christian radio or music, and they are not reading Christian books or magazines. The fact is, we know the lies of the world destroy lives, so these young people will come to a place soon where they are looking for help and hope. There is only One who can help, and there is only One to put your hope in, Jesus. May we boldly and without shame take Jesus to these young people who need Him so desperately.
