Wasted: A Misspent Youth


“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”
–Ecclesiastes 3:1

It’s difficult to believe, but there are some folks who are taught–not the truth of the Word of God but–a collection of stories they are TOLD are true.

These unfortunate souls NOT ONLY have to battle the constant, unbelieving drone of this world every single day, BUT ALSO have to overcome the stories of unbelief they were taught from an early age.

In effect, these people–who make up the GREAT MAJORITY of mankind–have to struggle against NOT ONLY today’s tales BUT ALSO against the stories of unbelief which will spring forth tomorrow, as well as the ones they were told as a child.


The struggle is really unfair.

Overheard several years ago:

You don’t really believe all that Bible junk, do you?  It’s just a bunch of stories!

From previous statements made, it was obvious the speaker had been taught his disbelief from a young age.

Often, the workers of iniquity pass down their unbelief from generation to generation as if it is some carefully-guarded treasure.

But what they, in their ignorance, are really passing along (pretending it to be super-secret, hidden knowledge) is condemnation and destruction.

Destruction and condemnation are perfectly fine for all those who willingly choose it, but it boggles the mind that, in their ignorance and pride, a parent would purposely pass down perdition to his children.

“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.”
—John 12:48
UNBELIEF: Passing Along the Myths of Ignorance and Destruction

Thinking back, it was a difficult enough conflict IF one was raised in a home where the Word of God was neither attacked nor promoted.

To be raised in a home where all-things-God are taught to be fictions, seems to be a very hard struggle indeed.

SO, to ALL who were raised in homes where ignorance and untruth were the rule of the day?

Get a Bible and STUDY it.

You’ll be incredibly glad you did.

Do NOT allow a misspent youth drag you down the wide path to destruction any longer.

DOES the reader have any stories he was told as a child of which he doubts the particulars?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
