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 an ‘old timer’, passively strolling towards a wooden box, 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’ and unfortunately since the ‘church’ often resembles a secret society it’s not easy to find out what is happening.

My personal observation is that there are fewer young people attending church than there were ten years ago.

 

Something to consider

 

Because the ‘Church’ is obsessed with perpetuating itself, its buildings, its institutions, its organisations, its establishment, its status quo, there is a reluctance to create what is needed - interdenominational youth events, for fear one of ‘our own’ ending up being attracted to another church.

 

Another problem is the reluctance of older Christians to let go and let others take their place. For instance long in the tooth ‘praise and worship’ leaders.

 

Music is one of the most powerful attractions and young people should be encouraged to learn an instrument and sing in the church band. There needs to be cross denominational youth music bands who are invited to different churches to help with the worship and praise.
