Youth Problems/ Education/ 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."

Texas attorney general drops a great big Yuletide truth bomb on school district

Dec. 9,, 2016 - Dedra Shannon, a student at Texas' Patterson Middle School, put her Christmas poster up, featuring Linus, a scrawny tree and a statement about the true meaning of Christmas from "A Charlie Brown Christmas":

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord. That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown,” Linus said.


Dedra's fellow-students and teachers appreciated the poster, but the principal told her to take it down or remove the religious content. At that point, the state's Attorney General stepped in, reminding the administration of a 2013 “Merry Christmas” law that says no school official in Texas can silence a Biblical reference to Christmas.
