A cultural tide contrary to the truth of God continues to rise. Christian teens are confronted with difficult topics like evolution, same-sex marriage and transgenderism. They are eager to share and defend their faith but feel they lack the proper training. Evan Wilkerson joins Gary Wilkerson to discuss how God has called him to train up a generation ready to take a stand for God.
Key Points from the Podcast
Christians teens today are eager to share their faith with their friends who are not Christians, but they don’t feel adequately trained to do so.
Christian teens are confronted with issues like sexual confusion, transgenderism and sexuality in general, but they don’t feel safe discussing it in church.
The worldly culture is heavily influencing even young Christian’s perception of gender identity and fluidity.
We must study the Word of God to know what he approves. We need to take a stand against a culture that is contrary to the things of God. Then we should speak up about our faith and the truth of God to others.
There is a time coming in our society when anyone who stands for God and the truth of scripture will be considered a dissident.
A large percentage of kids raised in Christian homes leave the faith as they move into young adulthood.
