Teen Christians have to deal with a lot of pressures like when at school, because when a Christian teen does talk about what they believe in they are mock or criticized. And when the fact that when a teen does believe in Jesus it causes them to lose friends so that causes teens to not want to be with god, or talk about it because of what there friends will think and do to them. Their friends want them to go out to parties where there are drugs, alcohol, sex, and violence. And if a teen has just recently become a Christian and was living life like that then they have to deal with harder problems like facing there problems a different way. And when you go from living bad to doing good you really have a problem trying to figure yourself out, teens feel really confused in what is right and what they should do.
Teens reflect a culture all of there own within American society. The language that they speak, music that they listen to, and many aspects of their lives differ from that of past generations. Therefore, many people of older generations tend to make judgments and assumptions about teenagers. These assumptions are typically based on the manner in which teenagers speak, dress, and present themselves. Because of these generalizations, faith of many teens is commonly overlooked. In a society where violence seems to be accepted and many teens are lost about whom they are faith can be the one bond interlining a group of many.
Our laws say you can?t talk or teach Christianity in our schools but they can?t figure out why there is all this violence and school shootings. Even if it was just a little something about Jesus it would help show people that there are better things in life, like life after death.
I think that we should bring back teachings of religion in our schools so that teens mite see that there is a better things then violence and you don?t need drugs, and stuff to make u feel better.
I think that there is a slight chance that if we did have religion in our schools that it would make them a better place to learn not so many problems.
But on the other hand I really don?t think that it would do all that much. Because teens now a days are so into there little groups that if they were to think about listing there friends would talk them out of it, and there are so stubborn and don?t want to change, and it mite make things worst. Teens will really want to rebel against the teachings of Christ. Because there peers say that it is boring or dumb to live your life like that so they wont change for all those reasons.
