    Why do some youth fail to seek God?

      Probably because they're not interested - simple as that.

      How would you know if others do not seek after God?

        Many seek and don't realize they are seeking. Many don't seek because they already posess the light, and though, not realizing, they are following it. Trust to the power that everyone is, and will continue to be exactly where they are supposed to be. Nothing more, nothing less.

          that is the one you should seek!

      Some youths fail to seek God because they are not ready yet. Some are enjoying doing things their own way.

        Do you mean you do what ever everybody else’s tells you to do, first.
        Or do you mean you only follow one med evil times instruction book of a univerisal truth, the Bible.

        For there is only one and only one righteous way to God, No matter if most of the population on earth are not aware of it, but you do know,100%.

        Which one?

          I was simply referring to the title of this thread. My post didn't indicate anything about doing whatever everybody tells me to do. I don't read a evil time book, but I love to read the holy bible which is inspired by a loving, awesome God. big_smile

            Do you, serve your self, first?

            Med evil times is where people lived out hard times and the average age death was around mid 20s

              Woman Of Courageposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              No, I put God first in my life. Serving myself first would be a selfish thing to do.

                IF you do not help yourself first, how will Yahweh help you, he only helps people, who help themself.

                If don't care about most of the population on earth and their God's
                How will mankind and all their God's ever get along with you or your God?

                It's being self serve, first, not selfish

                Selfish is when you have no chance of you sharing with most of the population on earth with their God or God's or with all other kinds of people.

                Kind of one sided and selfish, don't you think?

                  Woman Of Courageposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                  Castlepaloma, I agree with you. We need to help ourself first to give God something to work with. First of all, I apply faith with God's true word. This is how I help myself in order for God to intervene. I serve God first by seeking him for direction in my life and in helping others. I respectfully disagree. Serving oneself first is selfish behavior. Sorry, when I posted, I only desired to answer the question of this thread which is about seeking God. Have a nice day.

      Because they are the youth with courage and integrity--the ones, hopefully, who will take the helm, and guide humanity through the future.

      The youth who do embrace this nonsense are just as ignorant as the plantation slaves of pre-emancipation.

      Perhaps they already sense God and don't need an intellectual understanding?

          No not at all. The younger one is the less preconceptions they have. Because conditioning hasn't cemented their way of being. There sense of what is within is there although hormones tend to interfere a little. But their sense of what is, is far more acute then an adult. An intellectual understanding may and sometimes does take away the inner experience.

            I agree if you are over focus intellectually.

            You do need intellect for science language skills and information in order to require enough balance of the other 4 parts for a successful life.

              I don't disagree. What is it we are teaching in these areas. What enhances or what suppresses? What gives rise to balance or what gives rise to leaning this way or that. The middle road is always a good choice. If we do not have the tools to choose though. What is it we will be choosing?

                I strive to work more on my weaknesses, than on my strengths, for a better balance

                What bullies are good for, is clearly pointing out what your weaknesses are. Then when you turn them into strength, the bullies get madder than hell.

                What do care

                  pennyofheavenposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                  I have always observed strengths and weaknesses as neither. In any moment a strength can turn to a weakness and vice versa. They are ever changing therefore depending on the situation at hand.

                  Bullies tend to use another as  mirror. What they see is what they don't like about themselves.

      What is this god thing you mention?
      I don't think you know.
      I think all you have is an opinion and hope.
      Pls give me a response that is logical and not based upon "opinion."
      I don't think you can do it.

                Don't you understand--you are not endowed with superpowers from the planet Krypton.  If you were, you could see things regular mortals just don't have the power to see.  You could also leap tall buildings in a single bound. lol

          Superman has X-ray vision, therefore he can see things that we can't see.  However, that is confined to the pages of Marvel Comics.  If I imagined that I had powers beyond human capabilities, I would consider refraining from comics for awhile.

            So, Nostradamus never saw a thing, and neither did Edgar Cayce? I can predict what will happen in the next couple of seconds. With proper data feed, I can do it on a large scale. Jules Verne never saw a thing. DaVinci never saw a thing. Newton secret prophecies are in the Vatican, but, he never saw a thing. When it hits you, you won't feel it. You'll never have seen a thing! smile

              No.

              I once thought I was superman, but after further investigation, I realized that I was just Clark Kent. lol

    = = = = =

       Preconceptions play havoc with our understanding of ALL that we come in contact with.

       Imagine reading a legal and binding contract having a multitude of preconceptions,  concerning the things that you THINK that you are reading.

    Preconceptions are a BAD thing when reading anything.  And we are all caught up in them much more than can we realize.
    If we are not careful we miss the intended message.

      Yes, which is why it is more useful to use what is inherent in us.
