Teens now have a safe place to ask the hard questions about

faith, God and eternity.

 

You've Got Questions You're Scared to Ask...

Do any of these sound familiar?

Why does God allow bad things to happen? Why am I here? Do I matter? What is my purpose? Are Heaven and Hell real places? How do I know the Bible is true? If God is so good, then why is my life so hard? Why are innocent children starving all over the world? These are important questions, and you should have the freedom to ask them.

Answers to previous questions…

What is the Christian perspective on lying?

Exodus 20:16 states "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” This is actually one of the 10 Commandments, and it simply means it isn’t permitted to lie.

Here are a few other references that are helpful as well:

Proverbs 12:22

Ephesians 4:29

Colossians 3:9

1 Peter 2:1

Those are just a few. We would definitely encourage you to take a look at all of those verses and not simply take our word for it. At the end of the day, it’s always about what the Bible says.

Is it a sin to be unequally yoked?

2 Corinthians 6:14 says “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”

So first, we need to understand what a “yoke” even is. “In Easton’s Bible Dictionary, a yoke is defined to be: Fitted on the neck of oxen for the purpose of binding to them the traces by which they might draw the plow, etc. (Numbers 19:2; Deuteronomy 21:3). It was a curved piece of wood called 'ol.” (Christianity.com)

So basically, it joined 2 oxen together so they could walk side by side to pull a plow for farming. The key is that it joined them together and they were walking in the same direction.

So this verse, basically, it means if you are a Christian, it is not right to be in a romantic relationship with someone who is not a believer. This also means that your closest inner circle of friends should be believers as well. That doesn’t mean you can’t be around people who aren’t Christians or that you can’t be friends with them. In fact, it’s important to share your faith with those who don’t believe.

Jeanne Mayo, well known Christian author and speaker, is often quoted saying, “Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.” This is very true. 1 Corinthians 15:33 says “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

These are all things to consider when choosing those to spend your time with.

How do you know if a relationship will last?

We are assuming you are talking about a dating relationship. Honestly, as a teenager, you don’t really know. The important thing in any relationship is to keep Jesus at the center. Let Him guide you to the right person.

Matthew 6:33 says “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” So if you eventually want to find the right person, get as close to Jesus as possible. Then look around you and see who else around you is as close to Him as you are. That will be a great start.

The same advice would apply to this question as the one previously answered about being unequally yoked.
