Hallway of Doors

Picture yourself walking down a long hallway that is lined with doors on each side. The sign on each door lets you know what is inside. This is not a safe hallway to walk down unless you keep the doors closed. The signs say things like: drugs, alcohol, immorality, gambling, death metal music, suicide, gangsta rap, gangs, smoking, R-rated movies, pornography,and cheating. Thirty years ago or so a teenager who walked down this hall would find most all the doors closed and teachers, schools, parents, friends, television, and government institutions would all be there steering the youth down the hall without opening the doors. Sometimes the doors would be opened and youth would wander in or be tempted to enter, and some youth would freely enter into these vices. Today, however, the youth that walk down this hall face a different picture. All the doors are wide open and inside some of these doors we find friends, schools, government institutions and mass media inside actively pulling youth inside. Today youth who walk the hall called growing up in the 90's must be stonger than any generation before. They must actively avoid evil and seek good. They must have willpower and faith and trust in the Lord to avoid the temptations and the death culture that is actively seeking recruits in today's youth.
