Dr. Brown or Staff: With all due respect, there seems to be a word or more missing from this sentence: "We must therefore moral absolutes and truth absolutes and reality absolutes."

I used to teach apologetics to youth. I would ask the parents of the teens to make sure they did their assignments which were easy such as memorizing 1 or 2 scriptures every 2 weeks. Many times they did not follow through. One kid said he had no time. I asked him how much time he spent on social media! Eventually, I was not asked back. My experience, some kids and parents are lazy, they don't want to put in the hard work of being a disciple. I have read and agree that for too long our youth groups have been nothing more than places of entertainment rather than serious discipleship.

The one important issue you didn't really address is the changing hermenuetics of Scripture. Ministers are rejecting the grammatical/historical approach to Scripture and replacing it with a trajectory approach....which goes about as follows: "Paul said such and such back then; buts here's what he would say today..." With this kind of approach, you lose the authority of Scripture and it's open to anyone's opinion or preference.
