    Dear Jude,
    I read the article and it was excellent! It echoes some that I have read in Modern Reformation magazine.

    I've seen the same things mentioned in the article with the Jr./Sr. High - Young Adult group at my church,where they are very serious about their faith and the basis for it.

    The younger generations are VERY HUNGRY for faith with roots.

    In Christ,

    Dale

    Excellent article. I see the evidence of the orthodoxy of the young, and the rejection of liberalism. It is very encouraging. Thanks for the article. I am saving it.

    I am encouraged by some of the questions my daughter and her friends ask me. They don't want sweet sugar coated candy flavored religion. They want the real stuff. I enjoy young people a lot for that reason. We have such a great opportunity with them if we will only deal with the issues. I am challenged to reach them because when I was younger I heard the sugar coated nonsense and left the church at the age if 16 because I got tired of hearing the same old thngs. Later when I was in college a fellow student gave me the straight stuff and told me like it was. That was 32 years ago.

    Avoiding the issues and beating around the bush if you try to deal with one. It is in effect making the isues that are harsh and real acceptable to anyone.

    For example telling someone that homosexuals are born that way and dismissing it as something natural rather than what God calls it--sin.
