Culture Shock: A Teen Track by Generations of Virtue
In a culture that equates love with infatuation, assigns someone value based on his or her appearance, and claims that there is no such thing as absolute truth, teens are riddled with questions and peppered with doubt every day. But in the midst of all this hopelessness, God is raising a generation that He can use to turn the tide of culture back to His standards and His truth. The enemy knows this generation has a very great calling, and so he is the one who is bombarding the teens with all these questions and doubts. This teen track is a survival guide for teens, teaching them to replace the lies theyve believed with the truth of God. Through each session, the Generations of Virtue Team tackles these messages coming from the enemys camp:
- What I see in the media or hear from my peers is always true.
- Technology is all about me and my world.
- The only way to fit into society and be happy is to seek popularity.
- I can only find fulfillment in romantic relationships.
- How I spend my time doesnt really matter.
- Im only a teenager. Its not like Im going to be doing anything important anyway.
In a culture saturated with lies, it is difficult to distinguish what is the real truth. There are lies that we have believed since childhood. These seeds were planted when we were young and now bear fruit in the teen years. Combat the lies of our culture as we prune these thorny thistles and plant the truth of the word of God.
Who Will Win the Popularity Contest?
Our culture is gripped with popularity and the obsession to fit in. The enemy has drawn his battle lines for our generation: division at any cost. People-pleasing and racing to the top only means putting others down in your quest for cool. But Christ longs for us to forsake all in passionate pursuit of Him. Its His desire that we are in it, not of it. So which will you choose: The worlds fading applause or Christs eternal approval?

Culture Shock: Staying Pure in Our Technology Obsessed World
Our generation is rapidly moving into a whole new era: The Technology Age. Maybe youve gotten into it; maybe youve kept your distance. Either way, people all around us are telling stories about what kind of cool things they are doing with the internet, iPods, cell phones, and spaces. Think it sounds like fun? While some aspects can be fun, some are very dangerous to you physically, mentally and spiritually. Join the Generations of Virtue Team to learn details of how to be safe and stay pure while taking advantage of the internets benefits.
The battle against your purity is intense, with no signs of letting up. More than just your physical purity, the enemy wants to derail your purity of heart, mind, and body. If you want to arrive at the altar on your wedding day pure, youre going to need a game plan. The choice to stay pure is a daily, intentional decision. Join the Generations of Virtue team as we share tips and tricks to face this battle head on and claim victory in Christ.
