    I think a lot of teens nowadays don't believe in God because they haven't learned much about faith. Some may say that anything is possible but they don't believe in God. And that doesn't make much sense to me. I think they just don't want to belong to anything so they stop believing in everything. Sure, everyone has their doubts sometimes, but they never stop believing. Most teenagers have to have all the facts and details but, maybe they should just open their minds a little bit, believe, no, allow, everything to be possible. Accept that there's a reason why God doesn't show himself, why there is a big thing called faith. Faith is the thing that everyone should look for, and understanding that you don't have to see everything in order to believe. Some things must stay hidden, and we must understand that that is why we have faith.

    and to alexandra,you seemed to be thanking grammar-freak christians in this thread.
    and then why does this thread exist? if you only want to hear opinions from the believers then better post this in a christian-ish forum.

    and people nowadays always rely on reasonable proof AND THAT'S A RIGHT THING
    like when a stranger says to you "i'm your real father" but a DNA test has mentioned that he isn't,would you believe what that stranger was saying?eventhough there was no proofs from him?

    and stop ranting about my grammar,again.im 13,living in a 3rd world country(most of my classmates still believe in god and can't speak english either)
    just because you WESTERNS think that you are all smarter,better,then i'm pretty sure this post will get a negative rating because most of you were WESTERNS,hahaha.

    and someone will say "omg this little kiddie thinks he's tough",I DONT CARE
    just because you are older doesnt mean you are smarter.
    let's have an IQ test and see lmao

    stupid adults gtfo

    first of all im a 13,i live in a 3rd world country(doesn't mean im living poor/uneducated)
    MOST OF THESE ARE POINTED TO THOSE WHO ALWAYS BLAME HUMANS FOR DISBELIEVING IN GOD,if you are a super believer christian,sit n read please.my post content should MAKE SENSE,don't swear to me just because im 13

    I SPOKE EVERYTHING TO THE POINT,dont be such a poetic person because you think im not a native english speaker.

    AND the point is,why would you believe in things that doesn't have evidences?
    like seeing reptiles,amphibians,amphibians like frog in my opinion is evolving from a fish-like creature to reptiles,and slowly some will turn into mammals in a few million years,turn into human-like beings.

    if we say,GOD created everything,and make miracles when CAMERAS haven't been invented yet,and people are as stupid as early civilized apes,that doesn't make sense.

    but hundred years since CAMERAS has been invented,have you seen any evidences of god?nope

    i do believe in god but unlike the one who creates human,planets,etc.HELL IS GOD PLAYING SOME KIND OF SIM CITY OR TYCOON GAME?
    if the god itself exists,makes sense,but not the one who creates earth,sky,etc.
    why would we let ourselves be fooled by those from 2000 years ago?are you as stupid as those people in the past?

    my post makes sens...

    my post makes sense and more towards science,DO NOT say anything doesn't make sense if you want to reply to me.i will ignore them.
    i don't care if you are going to blame me for this,want me to go to hell or blah blah blah.

    some adults nowadays are just far dumber than our young teenagers.
    but since adults are better on debating and grammars,guess we can't say anything to adults

    All can say to the non-believers is "what if your wrong?" For your sake and soul i hope you are right but what if your not?

    like this yeah? "All can say to the believers is "what if your wrong?" For your sake and soul i hope you are right but what if your not?"

    non-believers have enough evidences but what about you "believers"?
    all you can do is to make some poetic comments towards us.

    because of the society we live in. people want visual proof of things. honestly how many teens these days actually care about morals. and also so many people turn other people off by the way they act. to me "religion" is basically rules and regulations. relationship is wanting to act like jesus not cuz we have to but because we want to do what is right.

    Teens in. This day and age (generally) are rebelious against their parents so I say unto you in the last days people will turn to their own ways in other words total rebelion of people towards God and anyone else who tries to help them.... This I say unto you as a truth Satan has this WORLD.....yes WORLD in a choke hold and he is pretty much saying serve me or die.....you don't believe me ask my father if you don't believe him then you already work for satan willingly or unwillingly. And if you still don't believe then look at your IDOLS or should I say "favorit music artist". And if you still don't believe try and and escape the system...... That's all I have to say and please accept my brother christ jesus

    They are to cool for God. When I was in school me and some friends started a christian club freshman year and at 1st it was just us then we started getting a pastor to come in during lunch and we had a little bible study over the years it grew a little bigger and bigger, but we always had all kinds of other kids laugh at us and crap. I didn't care and neither did the others. I don't think the club is still up anymore since most of us all graduated leaving only like 3 people left in there, but we tried everyone else just really didn't want a part of it.

    There is a lot going on in the world and its the parents responsibility to show their children God.
    But, sadly, some parents don't know God or they are just coming to know Him and don't have the ability to help their children yet.
    As adults, each person is responsible to make their choice. Hopefully, they choose God.

    Some nowadays teenagers don't believe in God, but the majority probably do. According to the statistics, the Americans today are as religious as ever. I don't know separate statistics on teenagers. However, I don't think that all of them (or even many of them) are distinctly different on this subject from their parents. I see many teenagers participating in religious gatherings.

    Brainwashing your kids isn't big in America anymore. Far more parents are non-believers, or at least question their faith, so they don't feel comfortable swearing that it is undeniable fact to their children.

    One side note. Morality has little to do with religious beliefs. If fear of punishment is the only thing preventing you from doing another person harm, you are not a moral person...

    Not true, plenty of teens attend our church.

    People have been complaining about kids and the "younger generation" since complaining was invented by the French.

    the truth is simple. values and morals have been put to the side and society has been affected. i know some people right now are going no vthey have not but let me explain. go back 50 years everyone well mostly everyone in a community believed in some form of God, does not have to be the christian god but a god. These kids where brought to church or whatever by their families. kids where not allowed to get out of it. families spent time together talking about values and morals that kids learned through examples that natural had religious ties. These foundations helped cement the kids that their was an higher power thus in a sense insuring that they believe in a God. No lets go to today. Due to the be a friend not a parent trend kids are allowed to get away with alot. internet and tv are virus to their brains if not regulated. Parents dont get their kids involved with the church and barely spend time with their kids. when they do its not parenting but a friend based relationship. Kids begin to rebel for attention and see being an no believer as a avenue to get their parents to be parents. so i have to say the reason alot of teenages are not christian is because their parents failed. PLEASE NOT THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO EVERYONE.

    Since gus and I are on equal terms now ......
    I am glad of this .... all due to a misunderstanding to what seems ..
