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."

Florida school shooting: FBI under pressure over failure to act

Feb. 17, 2018 - The FBI failed to act on a tip that Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz might conduct a school shooting.
On 5 January a person close to the suspect contacted the FBI tipline to provide "information about Cruz's gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behaviour, and disturbing social media posts.

Last September a Mississippi man told the law enforcement agency about a YouTube video by a user called "nikolas cruz" who said, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter."

Florida Governor Rick Scott called for the resignation of the FBI director, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a review of FBI "failures".
