Youth

 

Young people are easily indoctrinated. For instance,

suicide bombers tend to be young people.

Such vulnerability! - and this why it is important to

mould young people for Christ’s sake and in his image.

 

This site is produced by a middle aged kitchen guru,

passively strolling towards old age, who sees youth

as almost a foreign land whose language

he cannot comprehend and whose culture he has no

understanding of.

The life forms who inhabit that land seem like an alien

species.

Therefore this page relies upon a limited knowledge

of ‘youth’, but provides links on the right that are known

to have a significant youth emphasis.

 

Something to consider

 

Why is it that such an emphasis is put on the need for

‘youth’ workers and ‘youth’ initiatives, when it is the old

people who are running out of time to find Christ?

Is it because the Church is obsessed with perpetuating

itself, its buildings, its institutions, its organisations,

its establishment, its status quo?

Surely God is in control in the Christian Church?

Isn’t it the truth that building a ‘church’ with young

families is more attractive, more fun and less

troublesome than having to look after the many

needs of old people? Of course families have

problems, but isn’t it true that the problems of old

age are not as enjoyable to solve. Curiously

their problems are often easier to solve

- such as loneliness.

Isn’t it also the truth that young people are more

attractive, more engaging, with more energy and

more gullible to be moulded, shaped and indoctrinated

into the theological clones of the elders and leaders?

 

If as a Christian community we cannot even look after our own elderly Christians, sometimes not even our own parents, what in God’s name are we doing pretending that we are able and capable of being trusted with the precious life and soul of a young person? We certainly can’t always preach by example!

 

Does the Christian ‘Church’ reflect the Church of Jesus Christ as depicted in the Holy Scriptures? Do we love each other, protect one another and seek to encourage, affirm and enable? When one is hurting we should all share some of the pain and when one is blessed we should all rejoice in that blessing. Read 1 Cor 12 and 1 Cor 13

 

The Perfect Church is also worth a visit.
