Does God just make people like me bad?
Billy Graham writes, "The worst thing you could do would be to assume you can never change, but will spend the rest of your life getting into trouble (even if you don't want to)."
I teach in a junior high school, and I have become alarmed in the last few years at the way young people today don't seem to have any real sense of right and wrong. What has happened to our society? I can't say anything about God in class, but I really fear for the future of this generation.
Yes, this is alarming, and it does not bode well for our future. The Bible tells us about a time in ancient Israel when "everyone did as he saw fit" - and the result was social and moral chaos (Judges 17:6).
Our 16-year-old son absolutely refuses to go to our church with us. He and some friends have started going to another church that has a youth-oriented service they like, but I hate to think our family will no longer be sitting together in church. Should we insist he come with us?
I don't know your whole situation, of course - but I suspect your son would resist (and resent) any effort on your part to make him turn his back on his friends and be with you in your church.
I'll be heading into my last year of college at the end of the summer, and I'm already terrified because I don't know what I'll be doing after I get out. I know you'll tell me to pray about this, and I do, but I'm still afraid I'll make a wrong decision. Am I doing something wrong?
No, you aren't necessarily doing anything wrong; in fact, it's right for you to pray about your future and seek God's guidance (as I often say in this column).
I get very discouraged when I think about the future, and one reason is because young people today don't seem at all interested in God or religion. What can we do to change that? Or is it hopeless?
No, it is not hopeless. One reason is because young people today are searching for meaning and purpose in their lives - and only Jesus Christ is the answer to their search.
I'm supposed to start teaching a class for high school students in our church in a few weeks, and I'm scared to death. Do you have any suggestions on how to get through to them and hold their attention?
God is more concerned about these young men and women than you are, and He will be present by His Spirit to help you as you teach.
If I could give just one piece of advice to someone, it would be to be careful who you hang around with. I wasn't, and now I'm in prison because I got talked into doing some things that I knew were wrong. Maybe you can help someone by passing this along.
Why follow the crowd if it's going the wrong way?
