Whats wrong with youth pastors?



The last four years or so I've seen a trend to have hipper , spiky haired, young people teach our children and young people.
Who's stupid idea was that anyway?
Why do we have to have people teaching our young children with pink,red or orange hair cool glasses who are still immature, undiscerning and wet behind the ears?
Now Im not saying all young people are not qualified to teach Christians look at Pauls admonition to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12" Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith,in purity."
The youth leaders out today barely fit that example.
Rebels without a clue really. Pulling ideas out of MTV with things like the recent Pimp my church van at the youth conference Catalyst with Charles Stanley's kid Andy.
I love Charles preaching but someone needs to send Chuck a pair of cowboy boots with instruction to put them right in his kids buttocks.
Then someone needs to turn around and give Charles a kick in the butt for letting his kid go this far.
Why are we looking to MTV?
Relatability?
I don't want my kids relating to MTV. And if we are talking about new Christian or the unsaved why not show them the church is different?
What about parents start teaching your own kids as well?
Dont be so lazy and you had better check out what your church is teaching the youth.
I was shocked when I saw our young kids being taught a occult praying style called Lectio Divina.
Do our kids pastors have to look like the kids?
Why not teach the kids to want to come up to a more mature level than stay where they are?
Isnt that what growing up is about.
How will our kids ever mature in the Lord when apostate Bible versions like The Message or these hip carnal Bible magazines are being promoted to them. But them a King James or a New King James and if they dont understand it maybe sit down with them and explain it.
If you dont start preparing your kids NOW and preparing them with discernment right now you will pay for it later.
We need to get back to adults teaching our kids if they don't have parents who are Christians (and some don't).
What will they go back and share with their unsaved parents?
How to pimp my church or pimp my church van?
Or will they be able to share the true gospel of Jesus Christ with them and lead them to the Lord?
I also read some feedback from someone who attended and was part of Andy Stanleys conference. The person dogged both apostate preachers that were there Bill Hybels and John Maxwell because they stated they were dressed for a funeral. No respect even for the apostate teachers they follow.
This is our next generation folks we need to take action now.
