Are Church's Doctrines Confusing Youth and Driving Them Away From Christ?

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (1 Peter 2:2  KJV)

I have never touched doctrines in my writings at all, I keep my messages under the theme, HOPE  FOR ALL. Interestingly, after I realized how the various church doctrines seem to be confusing youth, I had to share my view.

"Brother Khrystus - Brother Khrystus," the person shouted from across the street in an almost extra happy voice. I turned around to see who was calling me and drew a bit closer. I really didn't recognize the who it was, but when they were close enough, they gave me a big hug and said, "You're doing are GREAT job!" with a big smile on their face.

After wondering and looking, I still didn't recognize the person and then they identified them self. "Don't you remember me? I'm _______ from Training Union." I was astonished, the child had grown into quite a mature person. I began to smile too. I had an impact on their life while I was president for six years at my former church. I served as president of that kid's club when I was age 15 until 21. I have indeed been working with children and youth all my life.

"Brother Khrystus, do you remember the fun times and serious times we used to have in Training Union? You were serious with us and trained us well, but you managed to come down to the level of a child and have alot of fun with us. Well look at it, you were a child yourself. Just a child with special leadership skills.

Do you remember the hard work you use to put into all our our concerts and how you always advertised them and packed down the church every time? You are like superman. You had alot of energy to handle so many of us and always produce a top-class, high-standard, well attended event. 

Do you remember that you always had some outline to give us as you taught us. It seemed like you sat and prepared every lesson and you always let us ask as many questions just to ensure that we understood and were clear? You're the BEST!

Do you remember coming to my home to practice my recitation just so that I could say it well at the Easter Programme? You used to do alot for real. You always went the extra mile. If you were Training Union President still, that would have been the biggest Youth Organization in St. Kitts-Nevis now. I always loved when ever you directed dramas, you always had a very high standard every time. Remember I acted in one of them that you wrote? You're just blessed."

I never knew the youth or anyone ever remembered all of that because nobody ever said so or said thaks until now. You really don't know everything that children take in at all. The person continued, "Do you remember your last Training Union with us? It's like you knew you were leaving? Did you know and not tell us? You bought the entire Training Union lots of Dominoes Pizzas and Ice Cream. We ate until we were filled and there was left overs. Did you know you were going and not tell us?"

I smiled and responded, "Not at all. I really didn't know that I would have submitted my resignation letter a few days after." The person carried me back down memory lane indeed. I said, "One of these days, you can come by me and we watch some of our training union sessions or concerts together. I have years of videos and pictures in my archives. When I look at them, I always bless God for using me so tremendously and for the impact that I made during the 6 years while I served. I'll show you a picture of you when you were much younger."

The young person then got a bit down and said, "Brother Khrystus, I'm all confused though. I'm all confused. I'm not sure I'll make it to heaven because I don't know what is right from wrong in the church." I honestly didn't understand the statement and so I engaged the person further and these were the additional comments.

"You see Brother Khrystus, I've visited several other churches too since you left and alot of them have different beliefs, yet we say we're serving ONE God. Some churches say do not eat pork, others say that you have to be full of the spirit and talk in tongues. Some don't celebrate Christmas. Some churches don't worship with other churches at all. Some say that we should worship on Saturday while some worship on Sunday. Some preachers say that we must give and give and give in order for God to hear and answer us and it's a whole lot of confusion. The church is doing a good job at confusing me. If I don't fall down or talk in tongues or go to church on Saturday - Will I go to HELL Brother Khrystus? If I get saved and sin or fall out of fellowship, will I need to get saved and baptised again?"

I felt like holding my head and pounding it on a wall. I understood the youth so well. Then I was asked, "Brother Khrystus - What do you believe?"  I wasn't going to confuse the person with my beliefs and tie them up more. I did say though, that one day we can meet and discuss further. I continued,  "as for now, I want to assure you that with JESUS - There is HOPE  FOR ALL. That includes you! I would never like to hear that you die and go to hell. I know you know about Jesus and the salvation plan. Why not give Him a try today - right now?"

The person responded and said, "Brother Khrystus, you've always been a great influential figure in my life and in the lives of others, but I have to think about which church and doctrine I want to be apart of before committing myself. Do you notice that to be in the world, it's not all that complex? All the worldly people believe the same thing and get along."

It wasn't a scheduled Hope Session where we had all the time in the world. It was just a short street conversation and they had to rush off. As the person walked away, I shook my head because I felt I had lost another one who already knew the word but just needed to committ. I had to ask myself the question - Are Church's Doctrines Confusing Youth and Driving Them Away From Christ?

Between ages 10 (when I got saved and age 14, I read and studied the Bible for myself about two times and wrote my own commentaries. I did it again after age fourteen. I wrote what I understood from almost each chapter I read in the Bible from a Child's Perspective. One day when you stop by me in St. Kitts, ask to see, it's so cool! What was I doing at so young of age writing Biblical Commentaries?

Interestingly enough though, throughout the pages of the Bible, I never read or heard much about the church divided into several doctrines and beliefs as we are today. I know the Scribes and the Pharisees stuck to the laws and carried them out, but when Jesus came, he brought HOPE  FOR ALL.  Don't you remember when the LAW wanted to condemn the adulterous woman - Jesus dealt with it so much differently? He didn't confuse people - He offered HOPE! Am I not correct?

As the person walked away swiftly, they shouted, "Continue to do the great work Brother Khrystus, I listen you on Dominion Radio and I get your emails and follow you on face book and visit all your websites. We'll chat another time."

Let us not continue to confuse our young people so early in their lives. Let us spread the MESSAGE  of  HOPE  FOR  ALL as we do at our Dare 2 Be Different International Ministry in St. Kitts-Nevis (www.d2bdifferent.com) and Kenya (www.daretobedifferentkenya.com) .

Let's not get too deep with our young people INSTANTLY when they are contemplating a change to CHRIST. Peter encourages us to teach new Christians and those in the process of conversion, the basic things about the WORD of GOD.
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (1 Peter 2:2  KJV)

I Feel Like Having SEX

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22 KJV)


BLING -My BlackBerry went off a few minutes to 12 midnight sometime ago. When I took it up and checked the message, it said, "Brother Khrystus, I feel like having sex." I opened my eyes a bit wider, read it again and wondered what my response should be. If I say something to lead her on, she could have it in her phone and show others what the preacher was telling her. If I didn't respond, I might be leaving her susceptible to fulfilling her lusts.

Should I respond in an all self righteous way and say, "Lady, I'm a preacher, ministry director and sunday school teacher and you're out of place to send me such a text. I'm deleting you from my BlackBerry." or

Should I be much more patient and engage her some more? I decided to do the latter and see where the talk would go. DO  NOT  JUDGE  ME - As Christians we are responsible for letting many newly saved fall PREY  AGAIN!

And so, I asked, "What do you mean young lady?" She answered and went into detail. "Brother Khrystus, I recently got saved and want to do my best for Christ. I want to do everything right. I go to church, Sunday School, Bible Study, and nearly everything the church is doing, I am involved, but there is something I still haven't managed to get over. I've stopped swearing and doing alot of wrong things but there is still something that remains."

She was a bit hesitant to go into detail, but after I encouraged her to talk to me since I never portray myself to young people or anyone as MR. SELF-RIGHTEOUS, she went on and said. "I know that Brother Khrystus. I listen to you on Dominion Radio 91.5FM every Saturday from 11am and you really just talk down to earth and you sound like someone any young person can talk to, that's why I decided to send you a Black Berry message so late, but I was still afraid whether or not it'll be disrespectful."

I smiled, even though she couldn't see me because we were talking via BlackBerry Messenger and said, "Go On!" The young lady continued, "Brother Khrystus, before I got saved, I used to have ALOT of SEX. Alot, alot, alot, alot of sex. I was overly freaky and would sometimes not only do it with my boyfriend, but with others too. Sometimes I would get excited and do it with females or with three people. I'm messed up!"

She stopped messaging me for a while - a long while and I took up my phone and called. When she answered, I could hear in her voice that she had paused to cry. I comforted her and said, "It's OK! It's OK! I'll help you get through this. You are not worst than anyone else and God is going to help you."

She went on to explain that she was still battling with sexual lusts and she thought she was living a lie, since she was newly saved and would sometimes have sex the Saturday Night before coming to Sunday Morning church.

She said some of the guys that she would have been with before she was saved, knew of her weakness and played on it and didn't respect her salvation. She was crying and crying now.

The young lady then made a statement that severely stung me and got me thinking. She said, "Brother Khrystus, for the past couple of months I've been looking for someone in Church to talk to, to help me through this, but everyone looks and acts so RIGHTEOUS. They act like they've never sinned or made a mistake in life. When a close girl friend of mine told me to try and talk with you because you help young people, I wondered if to send an anonymous question to www.askbrotherkhrystus.com or just be bold so you know who I am. I am really happy I did that, because I'm beginning to feel like you would help me through this simply because you don't sound angry and you are not CONDEMNING ME."

I felt really bad as she continued, "Brother Khrystus, this christianity thing isn't easy you know and I know this for myself, because after I went to the altar and said the sinners prayer, the church CLAPPED and rejoiced and left me ALONE to find out for myself what this new life is all about. Church members hug me but never check up on me and guide me and help me. Those who preach do not break down the word of God for newly saved like me to understand. So I feel I go to church just for going sake and I come back EMPTY - many times.  The same night I got saved, the same night I had sex and it has been happening all along. Please help me."

I paused, took a deep breath and said, "You know my friend, what you have said is ALL RIGHT. The church has failed with regards to ministering to HIGHLY  SEXED  individuals who get saved. We have really failed. We have also failed with regards to following up many times. Some churches do, but many DON'T and this is bad when we want newly converts to remain in Christ. We have also failed to remember that everyone isn't at the same understanding level in Christ and we should break down to word to a level that even a child could understand. I will discuss with my Dare 2 Be Different Team to establish a department that would be a support to newly converts suffering with sinful issues. You are so right."

She then said, The Bible says to " Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22 KJV)  Brother Khrystus it sounds so good, I keep reading it over and over and over again thinking that it will change me instantly. How can I begin to flee these sexual lusts so that I can grow in Christ?"

The young lady was so right, over my years in ministry and dealing with young people, I never had such a BOLD  ENOUGH  YOUNG  LADY   approach me so openly about their sexual life. I know she is certainly not alone, many newly saved and many singles, maybe even YOU, who have been saved for sometime now are  battling with this and other lusts, but hiding it secretly and playing all SELF  RIGHTEOUS as the lady explained.

The church and of course, my Dare 2 Be Different Ministry needs to do more to minister to the HIGHLY SEXED  individuals who are saved. It is a Spirit that many need to get rid of and it can only be rid with MUCH  PRAYER  and  COUNSELING.

Here again, I must begin to take more time out to pray that God sends me a Godly wife from St. Kitts or anywhere across the globe, before I too fall into sin as I deal with such issues. The Bible teaches us and warns about that, " Galatians 6:1 ¶ Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted."

 Our young people need help! Let's not write them off as NEWLY  CONVERTS. Let's show them too that all of us have some issues that we need to let God deal with in our lives and when we humble, yield and take counsel and get deliverance, we'll ALL  MAKE  IT  TOGETHER

Hope is Ahead for the Highly Sexed new converts, as you read God's word, get guidance from someone spiritual and not let them take advantage of you, continue to trust in God and make the effort that is required.

YOU  ARE  NOT  WORST  THAN  ANYONE  ELSE! That's what I tell everyone who engages me at one of Dare 2 Be Different's Hope Sessions, via Telephone, BlackBerry Pin: 220067D8, WhatsApp, Email, etc

YOU  ARE  NOT  WORST  THAN  ANYONE  ELSE - I do believe that's the same thing Jesus would have said to you too - He didn't condemn the adulterous woman that society wanted to STONE to death. Neither did he condemn the woman at the well. HE  HELPED  THEM  AND  SAID - GO  AND  SIN  NO  MORE!
