Why is it not popular among young people to be a Christian today? What is actually the point?

Gelb Ferse Schuhe Women's Ankle Block Fersen runden QIN amp;X Kopf Boots kurz 33 In today’s society the trend among most Christian groups is that the number of members is diminishing.

Three out of five young American Christians leave their Christian community after the age of 15. When we read statistics like these, there is every reason to call out a warning that something must be wrong. Young people are feeling that God seems far away. But why is that?

What is the goal of Christianity?

In His Great Commission, Jesus says “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20.

Why are the commandments to be kept? Because Jesus came to the earth to get brothers and sisters with whom He can abide together with God. (Hebrews 2:10-18) After Adam and Eve were disobedient and ate of the fruit in the Garden of Eden, sinSin is anything that goes against God’s will and His laws. To commit sin is to transgress or disobey these laws. The lust to sin dwells in human nature. In other words, it is contaminated and motivated by the sinful tendencies that dwell in all people as a result of the fall into sin and disobedience in the garden of Eden. This... Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins mokassins Lackleder Lackleder BRAFPqwq separated people from God. Jesus came to show us the way back to God. He showed us the way to keep God’s Laws and be set free from sin!

That liberty means that I allow the Lord’s Prayer to become reality: “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…” (Matthew 6:10) First in my own life, and then, in my surroundings. Then my body is an instrument for God and not for my own will. That is the liberty that Jesus brought!

According to the words of Paul, Christianity has gone off track if it merely causes people to maintain a façade of holiness while they continue to be egoistical, self-righteous, and proud. (2 Timothy 3:2-5)

Covered by grace and “permission to sin”

A fundamental concept in Christianity is the forgiveness of sins. Thereby, Jesus showed that He loves me and I know that I love Him in return. But don’t you think that Jesus had a deeper intention than “only” to set me free from the guilt of my sin when He died on the cross? “If you love Me, keep My commandments,” He says in John 14:15.

Everyone knows that love without action is completely useless. Why would that not also apply here?

If Jesus’ grace “allows” me to backbite, lie, and have critical, demeaning thoughts about others, have I not changed forgiveness of sins into “permission to sinTo commit sin is to consciously do something that you know goes against God’s will. This can be in word, deed, or even thought. (James 1:14-15)... Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins mokassins Lackleder Lackleder BRAFPqwq?” Realistically, then, what is the difference between me, as a member of a church, and those who are not members? Is it only forgiveness, which was also available before Jesus? (Hebrews 10:1,Suede Damen Cabaret Black Rock 5 EU Chukka 39 Boots Clarks Schwarz WF0xPwFq7) Do the churchMany people use the word to denote the entire body of Christians, and others to describe a certain denomination or group or even the physical building that Christians gather in. The Bible makes it clear that the true church of Christ is made up of all those who deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow Him. (Kaloosh Lace Women's Platform up Shoes Skidproof Increased Round Flat Casual Toe Internal Concise aRawEqr; Matthew... Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins mokassins Lackleder Lackleder BRAFPqwq leaders have to impose numerous rules and regulations about practical details in order to create a visible division between “them” and “us”?

Are these human interpretations of the Bible, preached as if they were spiritually inspired boundaries placed there by God, merely false Godliness behind which both egotism and pride can continue to prosper? If this is the case, it is not strange that many young people’s experience of the church is that God seems far away.

Not popular to be a Christian

Yet this is the foundation on which Christian youth are expected to establish a direction for their lives. But the spirit of the timesThe spirit of the times is the evil spirit found in much of the world’s modern culture/attitudes. It is not constant, and can vary from era to era and culture to culture. Though not always obviously evil in itself, the spirit of the times will always be instrumental in leading people away from serving and obeying God. (1 Corinthians 2:12;... Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins mokassins Lackleder Lackleder BRAFPqwq entices them with “seek fulfilment for yourself – live life,” and the lustsThe desires that we experience that go against God’s will. In other words, a desire for anything sinful. See James 1:14. Also called “sin in the flesh.” Although the expression “youthful lusts” is  often thought of in connection with sinful sexual desires, lusts include anything that go against what is good and right in God’s eyes. (2 Timothy 2:22.; Galatians... Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins Lackleder mokassins mokassins Lackleder Lackleder BRAFPqwq for sexual immorality rage in their bodies. How can anyone expect these young people to rather choose something that they experience as false, superficial, outdated, and unable to answer the most important questions of life?

The answer is obvious, and that makes it appear bleak for Christianity.

Is Christianity really outdated?

No, absolutely not! But we must return to that which was from the beginning. Instead of “permission to sin” or egotistical Christianity, we need to go all out to preach in such a way that all in the congregation ask themselves:

“Do I want to live as much as possible according to my lusts here in this world and ‘surf into heaven on grace?’ In that case, Jude 4 describes the result clearly: “… ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness … Or will I repay Jesus with genuine love, by keeping His commandments and being freed from sin?”

“What do I really want?” is the question on which my personal Christianity stands or falls.

With this as a filter many difficult and unanswered questions disappear or become irrelevant. My interest becomes focused on God and His will for my life. When I truly desire to live according to His will, the Holy Spirit will show me the boundaries that God in His great love and divine wisdom has established for me. Then I am no longer interested in pushing these boundaries, whether it has to do with sexuality, movies, music, games or other things.

I understand that it is only by God’s laws and commandments that I can be made free from my own egotism, and He can lead me into His divine peace and joy, both in this life and later in the life hereafter. Instead of the spirit of the times and ever changing trends in the society around me, God’s Word and the Bible become what I use to measure my behavior.

I Am Crucified With Christ

This booklet is based on Paul’s words in Galatians 2:20: “I have been crucified with ChristJesus was physically crucified on the cross at Calvary. Though blameless, He took upon Himself the punishment for sin, which was death, so He could pay our debts and forgive us our sin if we are willing to believe in Him and follow Him the Apostle Paul wrote: “I have been crucified with Christ…” (Galatians 2:20) This is a metaphorical...
