Good article Jack.
Sadly in this day and age many of the youth aren’t or don’t want to receive guidance.

You are so right sir. A lack of humility has us all contending with God (James 4:6).

Hello Sir, happy to have found your web. I have read some of your articles. What do you think about the idea that we can`t do anything to be “born again” and that it is only God`s work. Thanks.

Hello Elias. Yes, we are born again or the Greek says “born from above” (John3). We cannot come to God unless He draws us (John 6:44). Just as God opened Lydia’s heart (Acts 16:14) to hear the Apostle Paul’s words, He must open our hearts and we need the Spirit to be born again (Eph 2:1-5). John 1:12-13 says ” But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of a man, but of God.” Just as we did nothing or could do nothing to cause our physical birth, so it is with our spiritual birth.

Hello Jack, thanks for prompt response. So, even if I want to be His child, by studying the Bible, following His commands, giving to the poor and going to church… if He doesn`t call me, i am doomed?

Although it is likely to be generally true that a mentor would be older (perhaps just older in the Christian faith), don’t you think that sometimes, the mentor would be younger, in physical, and/or spiritual age, but perhaps more ‘spiritually mature’?

I do agree Paul. Age does not always guarantee spiritual maturity, so you bring up an excellent point sir. Thank you.
