Kids in high school and even younger are now facing issues that were once matters for college students and young adults. Evan Wilkerson joins Gary Wilkerson to discuss the questions and doubts confronting today’s youth.
Questions — about God, sex, gender, creation. etc. — that were once asked by college students are now being asked by middle and elementary school age children.
Christian teens are reading their Bibles but when they encounter difficult passages don’t feel comfortable bringing their doubts and questions in church and at home.
Many teens’ doubts center around the question of how a good God could allow so much evil and suffering in the world.
If we have doubts and questions, we should not stuff them down and pass them over but confront them and bring them to God.
Jude 1:22; Deuteronomy 32:35; Luke 13:1-5; Genesis 2:17; 2 Corinthians 4:17
