are constantly advised toward one extreme after another. Their parents and
teachers likely push them toward maturity and responsibility. Friends usually
suggest conformity to peers and pursuing that which will bring the most immediate
pleasure. The image portrayed by many musicians, actors, and athletes glorifies
sex and drugs and untamed selfishness. With all of these conflicting views, how
does a Christian teenager decide how to live?
this Bible study, Eric Mason encourages students to make every decision out of
a worldview shaped by God's Word and centered around our Savior, Jesus. Eric
calls teens to abandon the idea that choices made in youth are temporary and
meaningless, and instead to make decisions now that will impact both their
lives and God's Kingdom for eternity.
