Why do young people reject God?
Of all the people that do not do what they are told I am King! However, no matter how much I dont listen or backslide, God has promised me a place in Paradise. That, is the only thing that keeps me alive right now. God has a plan for my life and I should do my best to see that plan through. So why then do young people not accept God and the plan He has for their lives? I think it is stupid. If I hadnt ever accepted Christ, I think by now I would've attempted suicide many more than 2 or 3 times and probably suceeded.
Sometimes I think how the hell can you sit there and tell me you have a horrible life, yet you havent been through half the drama I have been through. Then I realize I havent been through the drama that they have been through so where do I get off thinking that there life will be peachy-keen and full of dreams. The one thing to know about problems is that they can make you a better person if you let them and can build character in you.
Since we have determined and discussed one of the main reasons why young people reject God, what can we as people do to fix it? Its very simple to attend to their needs by introducing them to the forgivers or problem- receivers in the bible. Share with them the story of Job. You could even share with them your entire story. Telling them the problems you faced, how Jesus Christ and God helped you through those problems and then sahre the fact that not only do you face new problems, but Satan still tries to use the old ones to help lead you to surrender to sin.
So many teens in the world today reject God because they themselves are rejected. rejected by their parents friends, or sometimes even their significant other. For some, this isnt a problem but for others, its a top killer. What can you do to help people see the truth about our Savior and Forgiver Jesus Christ today?
