I was listening to a christian song the other night and one of the lines was " I see a generation, rising up to takes it place" possibly hoping to prompt visions of the church and young people within the church rising up to take there place.
I'm not to sure I agree with that, I see a generation rising up to takes it's place at the bar...
I see a generation of young people looking for intimacy and closeness in casual sexual encounters
I see a generation numb it senses to a bleak future with excessive drug use
i see a generation rising up to make as much money as possible at the altar of materialism whilst they worship the gods of celebrity.
I'm just trying to be realistic.
I see a church generation that is neutered in it's response to these problems. A largely female grouping who desperately want just to rise up and meet a nice christian man, but as age creeps up on them the options narrow and they slip away either leaving the church or settling for the mediocre. I see a male generation who can give so little because the pressures of life and work squeeze there time out and leave them with dregs to give others......
I see a generation that is failing, both in and outside of the church.
Something needs to change.
It's been a heavy night on the street.......................
