Youth Problems/ Youth Revival


2 Timothy 3:1-4 says

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God...

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."

The Good News Behind Why Teens Donít Need a Bible for Christmas

Dec. 18, 2015 - A new survey from the American Bible Society and the Barna Group reveals that 75% of Protestant American teenagers (13 to 17) have their own Bibles and read them weekly. Some 37 percent read their Bible several times a week.

When you add in the 91 percent that hear the Bible read aloud at church once a week or more, it adds up to about 95 percent of practicing Protestant teens (79% of whom are non-mainline) hearing or reading the Bible at least weekly.
