2 Timothy 3:1-4 says
While this prophecy applies to ungodly behavior of people of all ages, the phrase "disobedient to their parents" shows that it is especially true of many teens and young adults. Of course, they are not intrinsically worse than previous generations, but they are the ones who have inherited an extremely troubled world, and understandably do not have much faith in a peaceful and prosperous future. Their temptations to addictive substances and immoral activities are intense. They are the victims of the apostasy of our end-times generation.
On the other hand, if the Lord sends us the revival that we need and desire, young people will lead the way, or at least be a vital part of such a wonderful event. There are already many promising movements that could lead to a full-grown "Great Awakening," and hundreds of thousands of young people who are faithful disciples of The Lord Jesus Christ."
