The Destructive Power of a Carnal Christian Youth Group

I got very ill while being a typical wife, Mom and congregant. Modern church teachings failed so I canceled all medical tests_appts and chased GOD down. HE SHOWED UP and taught me how to get well.

In complete contrast to what God had taught me that was allowing a complete reversal in some debilitating health issues, and ANSWERS to why my body was having the issues, the churches were handing out chemically-laden junk food at a ridiculous level. Food products we hadn’t had in our homes, our lives, or our bodies in ten years and this child had not been to a doctor in 13 years for sickness. Then we started going to church, private school, youth groups and all that changed FOR HER. It’s what EVERYONE was doing.

As you might imagine, this caused an erosion of my credibility as a parent and hardship in the home.  “Mom, he’s been to theology school” speaking of the youth pastor.  Uh huh…and I recall something about a millstone tied around the neck for anyone who causes a child to stumble too.  Pointing a child, in your ministry, towards foolishness and self-indulgence rather than principles of wisdom, knowledge, and self-discipline wouldn’t seem to be an advanced course in any theology school so maybe it’s time to rethink what’s been taught and accepted. 

What’s being MODELED in front of these young people under the guise of “church youth group” needs to be looked at deeply and reverently.  As a church leader there are stiff penalties for getting this wrong.  Maybe it’s time to read Getting Well God’s Way.  If you hurry there’s still time to repent and get it right. 

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Cor 6: 19-20  

Romans 12: 1-2 NLT “And so, dear brothers and sisters,[a] I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.[b] Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
