MORNINGTIME 2645
 
CHILDREN, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Ephesians 6:1.  Therefore shall A MAN leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24. These discussions on the office of "Youth Pastor" are really just an exercise in futility. I say that because most churches in America with a youth pastor are going along with the status quo of what man figures out should work in getting teens into church. These churches are trying to be relevant to young people because young people are the future of the church. (Really)? All that, is man's way of thinking. And man's way of thinking leads to ultimate death and destruction. The "youth pastor" thing is just one of many things that are Biblically Wrong with the (4 walls) church. If your church with a youth pastor isn't willing to Biblically prove this office, then mentioning other Biblical Wrongs in the church will be useless. This all comes down to Heart Attitude. Does your church have a heart to look at ANYTHING that doesn't line up with the Bible, and maybe even do something about it? If you say Yes, than the first thing that comes up on the radar screen is what you'll tackle first, whatever it is. But if you need to pick and choose, you'll do nothing and everything will stay the same. And if that's the case, it's OK, you'll probably never even notice the Lord quietly going out the door and hanging the sign, "ICHABOD" above the door. Don't worry, most passersby won't know what the sign means anyway. A few sheep will notice, but that's all, you can keep doing church as usual. Now, here's the good news, IF your church is willing to clean house and throw out sin, that's good. But if not, God's three steps behind you and He WILL throw out all the stuff He doesn't like. That is, if He doesn't see the ICHABOD sign over the door. For some, it's good when God leaves then alone. For others, it's bad. By which one will you, Be Blessed?
