timnolte: I’m getting this sense that there is a big battle raging right now for our youth
timnolte: I’m starting to question where this blog thing is taking people
timnolte: I’ve actually noticed a few concerning things as I’ve browsed through some of the camp staff xanga sites too
timnolte: I’m starting to feel like this battle is taking place on the internet where parents can’t see it
timnolte: I started getting this thought about there being a need for a ministry that focuses on youth who spend a lot of time online….
timnolte: I think the lack of physical interaction and a false sense of anonymity is giving Satan an opening for his lies
timnolte: I don’t know but is has me very concerned…
timnolte: I’m feeling I need to be bringing God’s light into this area, which brings to mind a need for me to be putting God first even in my own blog…
K* N*: interesting.
K* N*: you see, in my day […] i have written some pretty dark stuff in my diary.
K* N*: you just have days, and you are crying out.
K* N*: and you feel like noone is listeing.
timnolte: that’s what I’d like to think
K* N*: but if other people can read it and be affected by it…
timnolte: one concern I have is that Christians are thinking that too many things are “just part of the culture” when in fact it’s really a lie and we aren’t following what God would have us do
timnolte: we are suppose to live in the world but be different from it
timnolte: too many times I think we get those lines blurred
timnolte: I just have a heart for youth and hate to see all the junk that the world throws at them
That’s is the jist of where my mine id at right now. It’s late and I need to be getting to bed. I was out playing Settler’s of Catan again, which was fun but it got abit later tonight. There are youth and people coming over tomorrow night for games and stuff so I’ve got a lot to do tomorrow. Well more this weekend I hope. This going to bed early has really been putting a damper on my blogging. I’m going to have to try and do it more throughout the day. Perhaps more in the morning. Chow all!
Oh, one final note, so I’m an official member of eHarmony, why not maybe it’ll work, probably not. I found a discount on the membership. I actually began the first step in communicating with someone in St Cloud, but no response yet. I’ve probably already turned her off. Guess it’s going to be just the single life for me. People can only handle so much weirdness. Ok, off to the sack!
