Are people — young and old — who hang out at church really saved, or is their defining characteristic that they mimic those around them?
Years ago, before I knew the finer points of how Facebook works, someone I went to church with when growing up posted a picture from the Godspell play that the youth had put on. I was tagged in the picture, so it showed up in my timeline. For clarity, I added this comment:
Just for the record, I am not in this picture. It from a play my church’s youth group did (I wasn’t in the play). Sadly, out of all the people I’ve seen on FB from those years I’ve only come across one who appears to be a Bible-believing, orthodox Christian. Ironically, I was Super Pagan then and became a real Christian later.
Sorry, didn’t realize my comment would be on the main thread. I thought it would just be on my page. Didn’t mean to be a buzzkill. 😉
I highly encourage parents and church leaders to ensure that your kids know how to think carefully and to have an apologetics background. Otherwise it is just a matter of time until they morph into the world.
One thought on “Oops.”
That’s my heavy burden as a pastor, to ground the young in our church in a Christian worldview and believe it and be able to articulate it evangelically.
