‘when the mind is turned over to an anti-God spirit’

Nearly two thirds of teenagers don’t believe in God, according to a study by Penguin books.

 

The article was posted on Telegraph.co.uk about a study that was conducted consisting of 1,000 teenagers aged 13 to 18 and was managed by Penguin books to mark this week’s publication of controversial novel ‘Killing God’ by Kevin Brooks. Brooks’ book is about a 15-year-old girl who questions the existence of God.

Blurbs from the article-

Teenagers even say family, friends, money, music and even reality television are more important than religion.

Woe unto the mind of one that sets it’s heart upon this world and makes it their god. For all that is in the world is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

Brooks gives this reason for writing the book…

“Part of the reason that I wrote Killing God was that I wanted to explore the personal attitudes of young people today, especially those with troubled lives, towards organised religion and the traditional concept of God.

If Brooks thinks that these teens have ‘troubled lives’ now, consider the life to come without Christ. But then they don’t believe in life after death…

Only three out of 10 teenagers believe in an afterlife and 41 per cent believe that nothing happens to your body when you die, but one in 10 reckon they come back as an animal or another human being.

If they would hear the ‘rich man’ [Luke 16:19-31] they would be a lot less focused on the body post mortem, but rather give specific diligence to the soul.

A Church of England spokesman said: “Many teenagers aren’t sure what they believe at that stage of their lives, as is clear from the number who said they don’t know whether they believe in God.

Hanne Stinson, chief executive of The British Humanist Association, said: “It confirms that young people – like adults – do not need a religion to have positive values.

The problem with Mr. Stinson’s thought process, is that it only contends with the present. I have found that most people who do not believe in God only give credence to this life… it makes it a little more palatable having not to consider standing before Him one day.

“The ‘golden rule’, which is often claimed by religions as a religious value, is in reality a shared human value – shared by all the major religions and the non-religious and almost every culture – that predates all the major world religions.”

But this one supplants all religious values….

 

Except a man be born again!

 

“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” Luke 11:20-26 

I doubt very seriously that a society can vividly imagine how wicked a God-less society can be and how gross His judgement can be on the same. If you are interested consider His Revelation… He gives ample details.
