Here is the site for the orginal article Helping Youth Have a Faith of Their Own. Originally published Feb. 8, 2012.

Helping Youth Have a Faith of Their Own

The fact that youth participate in church less as they get older and often are not present in church as young adults can lead church leaders to assume they lack religious interest. A new book growing out of the National Study of Youth and Religion challenges that assumption. Sociologists Lisa Pearce and Melinda Lundquist Denton found that older teens and young adults see great significance in religion though not always in institutional forms of religious life.

In their book A Faith of Their Own: Stability and Change in the Religiosity of America’s Adolescents (Oxford University Press, 2011), the authors follow up with 2,530 young people, age 16 to 21, surveyed about their faith and religious practices at two points in time. The authors identified five types of religious identity among these young persons.

Abiders (20 percent). These are the adolescents with the highest levels of religious interest and practice. They not only believe in God; they pray regularly, attend services, volunteer, and are most likely to say their religion is the only true faith.

Adapters (20 percent). This group shows high levels of personal religiosity. But compared to the Abiders, they are more accepting of other people’s faiths and attend religious services more sporadically. The Adapters are most likely of all the groups to help others in need.

Assenters (31 percent). These teens say they believe in God, but they are minimally engaged with their faith. Religion is tangential to other aspects of their lives.

Avoiders (24 percent). They believe in God but do not engage in any religious practice. Their God is a distant one, and they often do not name a religious affiliation.

Atheists (5 percent). They do not believe in God and do not attend services.

Meaning for Congregations

What might this mean for congregations wanting to be sensitive to the faith perspectives of youth? We know that participation in formal religious services means little to many youth. They do not necessarily see themselves as less religious because they attend worship less often. The church is often not their primary community of meaning during these years.  

The writers suggest that congregations can support youth as they refine their religious identity with an approach called “scaffolding.” Scaffolding creates a context in which youth can participate at a level just beyond where they are currently. Instead of asking youth to go where they are not ready to go, they are helped to grow from where they are. Hallmarks of all such efforts must be honesty and acknowledgement of the role of doubt in faith.

All people have distinctive issues and needs at various life stages. One lesson from this research is the importance of supporting youth in appropriate ways during these critical years.

Christianity and Islam: 
A Side by Side Comparison*

* It is not the purpose of this site to promote any particular religion, including Christianity.  
However, we do enjoy refuting nonsense, such as the claim that Muhammad  
and Jesus preached a morally equivalent message or that all religion is the same.

"I will cast terror into the hearts of those who
disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads 
and strike off every fingertip of them." 
 
"Allah" (Qur'an 8:12)

"Fight everyone in the way of Allah and 
kill those who disbelieve in Allah."  
Muhammad (Ibn Ishaq 992)

"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
Jesus (Matthew 5:14)

Even though many Muslims regard terrorists who kill in the name of Allah as criminals, they cannot deny that Muhammad also killed in the name of Allah.  What example of Jesus do Christians emulate which has them confused them with terrorists and criminals?

Each year, thousands of Christian homes and churches are torched or bombed by Muslim mobs, and hundreds of Christians, including dozens of priestspastorsnuns and other church workers are murdered at the hands of Islamic extremists.  The so-called justification varies, from charges of apostasy or evangelism, to purported "blasphemy" or "insulting" Islam.  Innocent people have even been hacked to death by devout Muslims over cartoons.

Yet, there is little if any violent retaliation from religious Christians to the discrimination,kidnappingrapetorturemutilation and murder that is routinely reported from nations with Muslim majorities.  Neither is there is any significant deadly terrorism in the name of Jesus, as there is in the stated cause of Allah each and every day.  Muslim clerics in the West do not fear for their safety as do their Christian counterparts. 

The "Christian world" and the Islamic world contrast sharply in other ways as well, from the disparate condition of human rights and civil liberties to economic status.  An astonishing 70% of the world's refugees are Muslims -  usually seeking to live in Christian-based countries. 

While Western societies take seriously "scandals" such as Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo (where no one has actually been killed), Muslims routinely turn a blind eye to their own horrible atrocities, even those committed explicitly in the name of Allah.  The Muslim world has yet to offer a single apology for the tens of millions of lives consumed by centuries of relentless Jihad and slavery.

These sharp differences are almost certainly rooted in the underlying religions, which begin with the disparate teachings and examples set by Jesus and Muhammad...

Violence as Sin

Netanyahu Says!

Netanyahu Says ‘No Chance’ Of Iranian Nuclear Compromise Deal Without Dismantling Centrifuges!!

Israel – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that there is “no chance” the West will reach a final deal with Iran over its nuclear program, following comments by Iranian officials last week that they had not agreed to dismantle any nuclear centrifuges. “If Iran will stand by that statement, that means that a permanent agreement–which is the goal of the entire diplomatic process with Iran–cannot succeed,” Netanyahu said.

( Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu )

The Jerusalem Post reported Netanyahu’s comments Sunday, after he addressed his cabinet upon his return from Davos, Switzerland. Late last year, Netanyahu called the interim deal with Iran an “historic mistake” and made clear that Israel was not party to the agreement. The deal provides that Iran receives sanctions relief in return for temporarily suspending high-level nuclear enrichment and provides some access to UN inspectors. source – Breitbart

What Would Jesus Really Do?????

 

                        I find it very interesting how people view Jesus today.  I am not a bible scholar and cannot quote more than just a few very common scripture verses, but is being able to quote chapter and verse from the Holy Bible really that important?  Knowing what the Bible says is important.  Living by Scripture, especially by the New Testament things taught by Jesus and his Apostles are important, but I find a lot of people who are so quote-crazy they don’t really seem to know much about what they are quoting.

For instance, Jesus is portrayed in most churches that I know of, and by every Christian I know as pious, benevolent, quiet, and soft spoken.  I don’t see him that way at all, at least not all the time.  As a matter of fact I think of Jesus as quite forceful, and a pain in the butt to the bureaucracy of his time; and to the “progressives” who now control our nation.  I see a side of Jesus that is often more like a drill sergeant in the Army.

Jesus Christ is The Reason for the Season!

18) Now the Birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.


19) Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

20) But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall Save His people from their sins.

22) Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

24) Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25) And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called His name JESUS.

I) NOW when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2) Saying, Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him.

3) When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

4) And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

5) And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

6) And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

7) Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

8) And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

9) When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

10) When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

II) And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

How to REALLY Restore America

The major stumbling block to restoring America and saving the world is the lack of unity or oneness, which Jesus preached. With Christians all thinking the same thing it would be easy to elect Christians to Congress and all government offices nationwide to turn America to the true right which is defined by Jesus Christ. Then we could easily get funds and people to bring Jesus and His absolute perfection to the world instead of secular western economy and war. We could pass laws requiring schools to teach kids to memorize a Gospel by the 3rd grade before they learn to ignore teachers, party, and drop out. We could outlaw anti-Christian groups like the ACLU and make countless changes to make government more righteous, responsible, and redemptive.

The best way to get this unity is simply to preach Jesus' ministry and forsake all others. Preach the New Pentateuch, the 5 books with most of Jesus' words. Preach all of it, not leaving out verses that may force you to change the way you practice church. Preaching anyone else from Paul to Luther to your ministry or mine will result in more divided loyalties and Rev. 17:5 prostitution. To help you see the key insight, the best example of a false shepherd is John who wrote Jesus' ministry in his Gospel and Revelation but his own ministry in the Epistles of John - and the worst example is Paul who only quoted Jesus in three verses. It may take some work to change focus to Jesus as much as needed. The nation's founders turned to Jesus by necessity, we should do it voluntarily.

On the spiritual side, we need to change our human spirits from the old testament prophet type judgment, wrath, and destruction to the good miracles of Jesus including God's perfect love, countering the corrupt love popular today, healing by the Father's miracles instead of medicine, feeding by the Father's bountiful supply instead of human economy, transportation including walking on water and more instead of by man made means. Prayer is required to make anything in life good. We need prayers that actually bring forth all the true and perfect works Jesus did and direct contact with Jesus so we can be empowered by His Spirit instead of our own fading glory and well pleasing to Him in all He sends us to do.

Merry Christmas! The Constitution Still Stands

4063425933?profile=original

Have you seen the panic? There have been a lot of erroneous stories of late that exaggerate, not the danger that an over-sized government and its manic bureaucratic wing present to us, but the actual situation we are in as Americans at this very moment. No need to panic! Merry Christmas, we are still a free people. 

Like Ronald Reagan I am an optimist. I believe in Americans, and I believe that there will always be a free people in this country. Those people comprise the thread by which our Constitution now hangs. It is a strong thread, and though it seems tenuous at times, our Constitution gleams with a bright spark of Divine inspiration. Our founding documents, being inspired by the Mind of God, are more clever than the enemies of the republic. Despite the pounding and shredding of many of the basic tenets of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they continue to protect us. We still own our most basic possessions; our lives, our property, our voices, our choices, and the overriding right to defend them all. 

The signers of the Declaration of Independence all pledged their lives to the cause of liberty. When they signed the Declaration they may have thought they were signing their death warrants. They pledged their blood, and likely expected to shed it. But not one of those men lost their lives as a direct result of battle with the British. Some were captured and tortured for their roles as signatories to the Declaration of Independence. Nine of them lost sons to the Revolutionary War. Some had their homes and treasures ransacked. But they were not outright murdered by their adversaries. Their honor has only been magnified through time. And their treasures, if lost, were replaced with that sufficient for their needs. We too are protected as the the necessity for a Revolution of the 21st Century grows ever greater.

Some 20,000 Americans gave their lives to fight the British tyranny. Those lives sacrificed literally changed the world forever. I do not minimize the threats from despots and tyrants who now threaten our country from abroad, and from Communists and Progressives within our own social institutions and government, but we will not give up our freedom. It is impossible to quench the flame of human liberty once it is lit. We will battle with our might to defend it, but it will never be snuffed out.

As Christmas Day nears, I ponder my faith in God, and in His holy Son, Jesus Christ. My heart brims with gratitude to God that He gave me the privilege of being born an American. I am also thankful, though sometimes burdened, by the responsibility He gave me to fight to keep this country free and prosperous. As Christ freed His people from the chains of death and damnation, so too will He give us the strength to defy the chains of slavery to Big Government, and evil ideologies who hate us, and covet, and want to destroy, the blessings we enjoy as Americans. Living in Western Colorado, near the Colorado river, nestled between the mountain's majesty and the splendor of the high desert, I know that this is God's country. I also know that America is God's nation.

Let us reflect upon these things. The moments of panic steal our personal peace, but they also damage our credibility. As the Star of Bethlehem was a guiding light to the wise men who sought the Son of God, so let us be a ray of hope and optimism to those who are looking for a happier future in America. Hope burns bright, man will not easily become enslaved. We are still free to worship. We are still free to love our neighbors. Merry Christmas, we are still a free people.

  CCC** Gone, Replaced by the University Rowing Team?
 
 
 
For years now, it’s been common-place for the conservative students on college campuses to be assaulted from each and every angle by students, profs and books belittling decent behavior, the nation’s traditions, the U.S. Constitution, our history, and our religious foundations. Believe it or not, things may have just gone from Carlsbad to Carlsworse for Christian conservatives attending schools of higher education in particular . . . .        You know all those left-wing professors who’ve taken over America’s colleges and universities and begun organizing students into shouting down visiting speakers who express any agenda but Marxism and environmental ecotage? Well they have apparently succeeded in spreading the atheistic message of Mr. Marx really well according to the latest news on the college front . . . at least according to a surprising announcement first heard today . . . .
 
The well-known sixty-year old national Christian movement CCC (a.k.a. Campus Crusade for Christ) has decided it’s time to divorce Christ, figuratively speaking. The ubiquitous and venerable multi-faceted para-religious organization has stated their fear that the word “Crusade” might be “considered  offensive” to some while also dropping the name “Christ” from their moniker altogether.  Instead from now on the organization will be known as “CRU.” So they’re now running the college rowing team? “Stroke, Stroke, Stroke!” Or are they flaunting the first three letters of the word “Crucify?” 
Apparently the name Christ is the most offensive thing they discovered about their organizational title since they still kept the first syllable of "CRUsade" but kicked "Christ" out completely . . . let’s see if we’ve got this right? Here’s CRU’s new "missionary" approach: “Say, there’s a guy who came down here to earth and did some absolutely great things for mankind including you, my friend, uh . . . ahem, but, er, we’d rather not talk about it because it’s just not politically correct . . .????  Sounds like they’ve taken more than Christ’s name out of CCC, they also removed another important C: “courage!”
“Stroke, Stroke, Stroke, Stroke!”
 
 
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
Rajjpuut
 
 
**CCC says they sifted out over 1,600 names before deciding on CRU.  They also say that a lot of their followers for many generations have been referring to CCC as "Cru."  Rajjpuut doesn't doubt either statement.  However, the recent trends within the Christian community to even remove "Christ" from the names of Churches and this move all smack of the most gutless of political correctness . . . after all, the name "Christ" and the word "Christian" in your faith's name and that cross you removed from your steeple might have been extremely off-putting to terrorists, eh?   Now with the advent of Mr. Obama there's been a sudden meteoric jump in the number of "faith" churches and "hope" churches -- with many of them now preaching radical environmentalism as Christ's message.  One wonders what Jesus would say about banning DDT in 1972 and roughly 77 million^^ people dying of malaria and over 100 million deaths from all sorts of tropical mosquito-borne diseases on the basis of science fiction NOT science fact . . . is that the Christian, er, CRU thing to do?
 
^^ before Rachel Carson's pseudo-pscience book "Silent Spring" claimed that DDT hurt the environment, made eggshells too thin and even gave humans cancer (none of this proven; and almost certainly all 100% lies) the worldwide malaria death toll dropped to 42,000+ in 1972.  It's been closer to 2.1 million deaths ever since the U.S. and the U.N. banned the substance that G.I.s in World War II sprayed directly upon their bodies, clothes and tents; and which Africans used to spray inside their homes 3-4 times yearly.  Was Rachel her brothers' keeper?
