What is a common shortcoming amongst typical youth groups today?
Paul Washer explains in this video that when he visits a typical youth group, many youth attend only because their friends are there and they are entertained. Unfortunately, oftentimes, the Word of God is not preached and made the focal point of the gathering.
Perhaps one of the most important things that our youth need at that critical stage in life is to be instructed by the Word of God. As they transition into adulthood, they ought to be desiring solid food and not just milk. When we promote an entertainment lifestyle amongst our children and youth, we perpetuate spiritual immaturity when we ought to be encouraging them instead to pursue godliness with all of their might.
