My husband (pastor) has taken more heat on this issue than almost any other, but I appreciate his dedication to truth over popularity. We have lost friends and he has lost preaching appointments, but we have put legs and action behind our firm convictions that children belong with their parents. I can personally testify of the "Christian" teens who come into LMO, with no commitment whatsoever to the gospel and yet no problem identifying themselves as "Christians", and almost all of them are victims of youth ministry.
Just as a side note, the last time I posted something along these lines, I was flooded with hate mail. I have 2 things to say, first of all, this is my blog (hence, the blog address). I have not dedicated my life to shutting down youth ministries and people who don't agree with me, so don't try to shut me up on my own personal blog. Secondly, consider earnestly what this video is saying. The statistics don't lie, and souls are hanging in the balance. It's worth at least an honest look. Not only could it possibly save the eternal destiny of your children, you might discover something much richer and more blessed that God has in store for families and churches.
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. " Matthew 7:13, 14
