The sad thing is that 1. There is very little parental intervention in the lives of their teens today, and 2. The media is not respecting the boundaries that God has placed around us. As a result, we have a lot of lost teens, who go around aimlessly, and who have never been taught the basics of life or how to interpret life properly.
Here is a short note I wrote on Facebook today. It was with this thought in mind.
God created us in His image, and we were created with dignity. When we go outside of the boundaries that He has established, we lose the dignity that God placed in us. When this happens, we are covered in shame and guilt. Then the devil lies to us and tells us that we need to tell ourselves how great we are. We can't deny the shame and guilt that is there. But we can take it to the Cross of Jesus Christ and be cleansed of our filth and we can be given the chance to start all over again. We will have the power to live a new life in a new way, not in our own strength but in the power of Almighty God.
Here is an insightful video for those interested in watching. The video describes the work of the media and what they are doing to make money off the desires of the teenagers in our society today.
