Hello there, How would you deal with someone who you KNOW are not saved, I mean they absolutley do not show fruit of the Spirit, a false convert.. How would you treat this person when they come to you for spiritual advice, or talk about their problems? Would it be wise to voice your opinion that they are not saved? The reason I bring this topic up, is latley I have been having a debate within my mind. My church youthgroup is full of youth who frankly, are not Christian. Their parents have forced them into the church, and so they come to church reluctantly, and have no problem showing it. Foul language, violence, just very worldy behavior.. So much as to where I have brought friends to the youthgroup, who were not saved, at activities or something, and they specifcally said they would not come back due to these 'punks', as they referred to them. Now, I love these kids. However, I feel I should warn them, that by Biblical standards, they are not regenerated. They never have had repentance, true genuine repentance. This is an unfortunate situation, but since I started being a Christian I have seen this in both of my youthgroups. It is disturbing.. Please give me some suggestions on how to deal with this situation, I am only 16 years old, and have searched out the Scriptures and it has resulted in conflicting oppinions. Whisper not wisdom in the ear of a fool, and cast not your pearls before swine, but yet preach the word in and out of season? God Bless, I look forward to hearing your responses which so often have urged me down the right track, in Christ, Andy.
