The bible speaks about milk and strong meat. Let’s have a look at this scripture:
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
God’s word has not changed, and His truth endures to all generations (Psalms 100; 5).
Now let’s have a look at scripture:
Romans 13; 3-5
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
Why do many societies have problems with some youths? Note the word “some” because this does not apply to all youths.
It’s mainly because youths are inexperienced in life, yet they want to live as adults. They have a tendency to make irrational decisions due to immaturity. Many adults have looked back at their lives and said “I wish l did not do that when l was younger”.
When we look at scripture, we can see examples of youths that lived for the Lord and brought honour to His name. This tells us that being a youth, is no excuse to do otherwise.
