In the United States, it’s considered culturally-acceptable to take a group of public high school kids to visit a mosque and give them copies of the Koran, or to a Hindu temple and have them participate in meditation, but it’s not okay to take them to a Christian church, let alone pray to Jesus before a football game.
This is the world our young people live in day to day. They are pressured every day to turn away from Christianity, whether it’s through ridicule or outright indoctrination. In our country, a 14-year-old girl will be punished for refusing to write a paper highlighting the virtues of Islam, and a 16-year-old transgendered boy will be elected homecoming queen.
This is the world in which our young people live, the one that is laying a foundation for our future. We cannot call ourselves a “Christian” nation. We are a nation that has no idea who Christ is anymore.
What can you and I do about it? How can we rescue an entire generation that has been ridiculed, pressured and persuaded to abandon Christianity as some kind of hateful medieval belief system?
We are intervening against the trend to mock teens out of their faith by showing them what a faith-filled life really means. Will you bring a teen to SURGE? Will you act on behalf of a teen today?
