What else do they think of besides sex
fashion fads and famous people to emulate?
This journey of life demands more respect than we give to it, and it is a shame that we allow our culture to continue in such a sad state of disrespect for human life.The primary goal of our youth is how to look more beautiful, find more crazy fads, worship the famous people,and have more excitement in their sexual activities.
Then we wonder why the world is in turmoil! Please understand that I know a lot of very fine youngsters and teens. However, if you take a look at the trends and do a poll, you'll see that more and more, are slipping away into the selfish society of pleasure seeking, and lack of responsibility. It is a trend that will destroy them.
Creator has made it plain that our main
reason for this journey on earth is to
strengthen ourselves in learning ways
to defeat Satan who is our greatest
adversary and Creator's enemy!
Our main goal is to become friends
with Creator, learn His ways and do
those things that are in keeping with
heavenly living, so that we may be fit
to live there one day. We are meant
to become knowledgeable of all God's
tenets and principles and apply them
to our own life.
That is the only way to defeat Satan. We are supposed to be teaching our children how to defeat Satan. It should be the main subject in their teaching both at home and whatever church they attend. In fact there should be separate classes, just to learn the ways of Creator and how to fight Satan
to keep him from stealing our lives.
This is the main reason we are here, and we have failed miserably. If you don't believe that, take a long look around the world , then think about what we have become as a human race. The injustice the decadent societies, the wasteful profligate life of many wealthy, and famous.
Yes we are good in time of the 9/11 and Tsunami etc disasters, and it shows what we can truly be when we try. However we always become complacent and go right back to our selfish pursuits. That is why we have a world in chaos, and war all the time
I know to most I'm wasting my time as those who believe will understand what I say to be true , and some may think twice about how they are living their lives, but the ones who are straddling the fence may give it some thought, that is my hope.
However, the bulk of the populace will just pass it by as they go on their way bitching and moaning about how bad things are, while never taking a stand to make things better! What is our youths number one topic and priority? Sex! What have we as a nation
done to promote that way of thinking?
This is what needs to be recognized and changed! Adults are responsible for the terrible way at least half of our youth are becoming decadent insenitive, and just plain selfish. They haven't a clue as to what they are doing or why they are here, and
furthermore they don't care!
I know non-believers will see things differently, but I have yet to see any of their theories work, either.

|I agree with this, but as I was reading this, I began thinking what my parents thought. Being a child of the late 60s, early 70s, I bet they thought the same things. What I'm trying to say is children have a way of working things out...|

|To Sandy and others of Sandy's bent, I have only two words: Sodom and Gomorrah.|

|Not to mention those filthy TV shows that parents are obvilious to. They, themselves, even laugh at them. What you wrote, Eileen is absolute, perfect truth. I agree with you 100% Sometimes when I am focusing on Jesus, the realization comes to me that he was only in his early thirtys. A young person. If only young people could relate to him and his own wonderfully rebellious spirit.|

|Interesting article. I understand the point you are trying to make, but resent that implication that this is the way it is for all teens or parents. It isn't. As a non-believer, I have raised two daughters who did not spend their time thinking about sex, being popular, or stars to emulate. Of course, I didn't put them in Nike tennis shoes before they could walk, or have big birthday parties, or ask their friends to pick up toys because 'everyone else did', and I didn't take them to a church or subject them to any other groups where everyone was told to believe the same and act the same, so they had very strong values of their own and weren't intimidated by what the other kids were doing. My first daughter was involved in a lot of extra-curricular school functions (sports, debate team, volunteer program) and my second one literally spent her teen years in the basement working on her dancing and singing careers. They were both very motivated, enjoyed what they did, and looking ahead. I don't think it has anything to do with religious beliefs, I think it has to do with character and ethics - things that are not related to religion. Fortunately, neither of them believed in Satan, so he never messed with them.|

|This is a great write Eileen, depicting the sad state that too many have fallen into. When you see more than 50% of marriages ending in divorce, it can be blamed on the upbringing our youth has had in this throw away society led by Hollywood and the liberal media. Well done|
