Younger students are no different than their older peers when it comes to sexting, a new study reports.
More high school students are sending and receiving sexually explicit text messages or photos, and that makes them more likely to engage in other types of sexual activity as well. Now researchers say the same trends are trickling down to younger students in middle school. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics found that a significant number of adolescents between ages 12 and 14 sext, and that these children are more likely to kiss, have oral sex or sexual intercourse than their counterparts who did not send such explicit messages....
The rebellious youth culture started in the 50s,prior to that it was an adults world and children were taught to adjust and prepare to live in it,to be seen and not heard,to respect their elders,then the "greatest" generation came home from the War and somehow forgot to teach their children what they learned during the depression years and four years of War.
They wanted to shelter their little darlings from all the hardships and responsabilities of life but forgot the character and integrity it produces,then began the lazy spoiled self obsessed teenager who's only goal and ambition in life is to be "cool" and accepted among their peers....it was all downhill from there.
Not a great pastor, TC...glad he's history as far as your being under him, that is. The blame game is a vicious cycle. Terrible parents with no parenting skills, or even the desire, raise an entie generation of Godless, youth gone wild. Then, those same youth grow into adults, breed a new generation of youth who are even worse, and the cycle continues. The adults and youths are both to blame, but it always begins with the adults...
I guess my post was unwarranted, thing is, this article reminds me of a pastor I used to know & he would tell teens that they "were good for nothing but to shut up and listen to his teaching". Couldn't stand that guy.
No surprise. This should be expected in the assemblies of Satan. For that's what schools are. Shouldn't be any surprise either for this to happen in the State "churches," which are assemblies of Satan as well.

No one here is blaming societies [sic] problems on the youth, TeenChristian. Unfortunately for them, today's modern youth are living in the quagmire of an increasing secular, godless age. I pity today's youth for they are (and will be) increasingly bombarded with the deadly "philosophies" of this age. I pray for them!
The modern age (with its technology and all its various social/political support systems) has indeed made the consequences of sin more ... livable(?) Furthermore, guilt and shame are conditions which the modern age has attempted to irradicate from the human psyche. Just about any harmful condition is considered a "disease" treatable with drugs or forms of psychotherapy.
"Sin" is not recognized as sin(except when its against the environment or animals).
The age of technology, although it has made life exponentially easier, led to many incredible discoveries, and has made the world a much smaller place, has brought many to ruin. The age of political correctness and a masive falling away from God has ruined the family dynamic, taken the power away from the parent and given it to the children who the parent can no longer effectively discipline for fear of being jailed, etc. As for a falling away, without God in the family, the family relies upon worldly tools for daily cohesion and problem solving, and are limited by the new laws of the land for discipline which is all a recipe for disaster. Anyway, add all of this to todays technological marvels, the internet, smart phones, instant access to anyone, anywhere, and at any time, and, well...here we are today with the younger generation out of control getting diseases and raising babies who don't even have a chance save for God's intervention, because they will end up even worse as the generations degrade.
