pinenee, I noticed that you are trying to give a young adult advice. Why? You seem to be in need of some yourself. Trying to influence our younger generation is the liberal's way of seeding future generations with their nonsense. "The bible should be for adults. For young people, initiating religion is serious business." That statement is absolutely absurd and you should be careful about offending a child that believes in God. In fact Christ says we should become as little children. The bible speaks specifically to children on some issues. Colossians 3 20 : Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well-pleasing unto the Lord. 21 : Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

Ephesians: 6
1 : Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 : Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
4 : And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and
admonition of the Lord.

Luke: 18
15 :And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
16 : But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
17 : Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Deuteronomy : 4
10 : ….they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

2 :And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 :and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 :Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 :And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6:But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Leviticus 25:44-45: Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property.

Last year while on a road trip with some friends, we turned on the radio with the windows rolled down and let our hair fly, something everyone should do when they have the chance. A song came on with lyrics that included the words “What do I stand for?” The same song popped into my head yesterday and made me think of the challenge I and my generation are facing: What do we stand for?

I love my generation. Our idea of fashion is choosing to buy shoes because part of the proceeds provides shoes for a child in another country....
