The topic is on Abstinence, it's your choice to read on.
Sunday evening our church youth group attended a "Silver Ring Thing" program. Check it out, there may be one coming to your area.
It is bible based, teaching on abstinence. They had a 40 minute parent/youth leader session at the beginning of the program while the kids attended the 2 1/2 hour program consisting of music, a message, skits, testimonies and a "second chance" message. Of course parents joined the kids after the parent session.
If you choose to make the committment, you have the opportunity to purchase a purity ring, engraved with 1 Thess 4:3-4. They were also given a new testament abstinence study bible with a ring purchase.
This group is reaching youth and adults around the world. Of course they are always running into those who are against the program. They were hoping to have about 800 attend, there were 2,000 in attendence. It appears this generation is willing to listen and give it great thought as to how their life can be affected by the decision they make.
As a parent and you haven't spoken with your teenager, please make the effort to do so. Please also pray for your teenager.
Our kids really need to learn the true facts, whereas in the majority of schools they aren't taught abstinence, they are getting mislead as to what is safe and what is not.
Who teens say is the single most influential factor in their decision making: "MY PARENTS"
Who Parents believe most influence teens' decisions: Teens' friends
The vision: To create a culture shift in America where abstience becomes the norm again rather than the exception.
In the United States, more than 65 milltion people are currently living with an incurable STD. Most people in the US remain unaware of the risks and consequences despite the fact that STDs are extremely widespread, have severe and sometimes deadly consequences, and cost billons of dollars each year.
