I guess I am going sound like old people 50 years ago, but I am appalled at how worldly our younger evangelicals are today. We cannot seem to get it right. The church is either way too legalistic, or we allow them to do whatever. Much of this may be due to a lack of Biblical teaching as so many church leaders (including Christian college presidents) are decrying about younger adults. The church must do a better job of discipling because there is no reverence and a very small amount of doctrinal understanding. But, at times I am surprised at the depth they have spiritually. I just wished the worldliness wasn't so acute as it will chip away at their Christian life. Then when they are old, they will "wake up," but then it might be too late to do what they needed to do in their lives.
And that brings me to the elderly in the church. Why aren't there mentoring programs set up to help these younger ones? We certainly can go to our old people's Sunday School class, but sometime during the week we need to join groups within our church to meet other age groups, especially younger ones. Right? Old people--let's get going!
