Let’s face it, to non-believers our faith is foolishness, as Paul wrote. And we believe that the ideas of neo-pagan cults are foolishness. On that basis, we are even; neither side can talk the other down. So, how do we guide our children, whom we have tried to bring up in the faith (or should have) and who are now questioning? Simply ask them to seek and investigate dispassionately what it means to LIVE the faith, and compare the Christian faith with the others. And when your youngster points out all the hypocrisy and even abuse associated with some Christians, the answer is that such is to be expected, for no other faith requires us to go against our baser nature to such a degree, certainly no neo-pagan cult.
One of my readers reached out to me a couple of years ago with the hope that I could help him communicate with his prodigal nephew. The kid had grown up in a Christian home and seemed to be doing well until he enrolled at a local community college. It was there that he decided to abandon his conservative and Christian beliefs. Even worse than that, he decided to replace them by joining a neo-pagan cult. I will not mention the group by name as I do not want to give them more attention than they deserve.
