And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. (Exodus
As the days when the new King Pharaoh ruled over the land of Egypt when the people of Israel were there, today’s youths are living in the battleground, which Satan would like to control their lives. Since the event in Exodus 1, Satan’s battle is not over. Now, as we continue to see in the media, our youths are facing many temptations to walk themselves away from God.
Do we know how dangerous activities effect on them is when they hook up onto the Internet? “53% of teens have encountered offensive web sites that include pornography, hate or violence. Of these, 91% unintentionally found the offensive sites while searching the Web (Yankelovich Partner survey, The Safe America Foundation; Sept. 30, 1999).” (xxxchurch.com) Most of them are not in supervising by parents or other adults. Recently, in Rock Church Ministries, youth pastor said that most pornography is supported by Christians. Wow! We may feel surprise to hear on this statement.
Are youths in battleground? Of course, they are in dangerous zone in their lives. Satan likes to destroy many youngsters as many as possible. King Herod tried to find baby Jesus to kill Him, because Satan told him to do so.
MTV is killing many young people’s souls by feeding them with hip-pop and hard rock music. They are trying to destroy youths’ minds, so is with BET. Even though BET has some Christian programs, most preachers and artists are speaking out from their own mind and not from the biblical context.
As I said before, youths need strong Christian friends and families as their role models, so they can have knowledge and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is the only way that they can have the victory over Satan and his armies.
