One of the commenters from my post of May 9, responded to a post I did on "Generation Me." I lamented that we have another "me" generation and the Christians in this generation are very entangled with, in, and of the world. I received a wonderful comment from Anonymous, who said...
Oh, without a doubt it's showing up in Christian community. At my children's Christian school, a parent's suggestion to skip the out-of-town basketball tournament and instead have a spiritual retreat was met with near howls of laughter. Thank goodness the teen girls wear white robes for Confirmation, because when the robes come off, it looks more like a hooker's gathering than a religious one. I feel truly sad for the adolescent boys in church during the summer months when girls show more flesh than you see in a lingerie catalog. And then there is the high school graduation invitation we received, from a good church going family, with a picture of the graduate in a skimpy top with a basketball between her legs. Among our Christian community, cool and trendy seem to have become more important than moral and faithful.
Wow! I couldn't have said it better.....:)
