Youth Today

Updated on August 14, 2016

Religion and Our Youth

Our youth today lack the spiritual foundation that our grandparents and parents grew up on. The youth now don't have prayer in school anymore and some don't have it at home either. That is why our youth today are loss. We were taught to respect our elders and honor our mother and father and our days will be longer. Now a days are youth are so disrespectful.

I feel that lack of religion is why our youth are out of control. Most of them no longer have morales. Most of them accept any and everything that comes at them. I feel that if they had a religious foundation that would not have the mindset most of them have now. The bible teaches us how we should conduct ourselves.

The bible taught us that its ok to spank your children. It taught us how to not accept things that we know are wrong. It taught us that it's ok to save yourself for marriage. It taught us that you must not follow anyone that you felt was not leading you in a positive way. It taught us that if we were struggling with anything to give it to the Lord.

Nowadays the kids are committing suicide because they're trying to deal with it on their own. The youth today no longer respecting their mother,father or grandparents. They feel that they know the answer to their problems; which is drugs, sex or violence. They also lack social skills due to todays technology. Some of them have never stepped foot in a church or picked up and read a bible.

We need to take our youth back and teach them the the key to life is putting the Lord first. It starts with our parents today. We must stop letting everyone else teach our kids how to deal with life and lead them to the Lord. Just because they took religion out of school doesn't mean we can't teach them at home. We need to lay down a solid spiritual foundation for our youth to learn and follow; so that they can teach their future children how to put the Lord first and everything else second.

      "Just because they took religion out of school doesn't mean we can't teach them at home."

      And your point is crucial because the parents of children are not pursuing their own Bible study. As a result, they may find themselves at a loss when it comes to teaching their own children.

      The most recent State of the Bible study (2014) by the Barna group validates this: http://www.americanbible.org/uploads/content/state...

      The fact is roughly 50% of adults read the Bible no more than 1-2 times per year. Roughly 15% read it daily.
