Generation of Fun

I had an interesting conversation with my friends tonight about relationships and commitment. One of my friends said that this generation is different from the past generations during our parents’ time, during our grandparents’ time. It is true. This is a new kind of generation. It is a generation without the fear of God, without honor, without end - a generation that wants instant gratification, a generation that appreciates very little, a generation with an unquenchable thirst for pleasure.

This generation is constantly searching for happiness in all the wrong places. Looking for love at bars, in a darkroom at nightclubs, and with other attached people. This generation has it all wrong, chasing after the wrong things like money, fame, and random sex with strangers in all the while believing that all of these things will make it happy - make it extremely happy.

Unless this generation realizes that life is not a detour at every turn, it will crash and burn in the agony of constant search for the unreachable, unrealistic Utopia. The only true way to happiness is through loving Christ, to truly love Him and pursue Him with all its heart, with all its mind, with all its strength and with all its soul. Unfortunately, this generation of the world will never learn this secret until it is too late and this earth is burning in hell. A warning to this generation: you will not even get a drop of water to cool your tongue as you are in anguish from the flames of hell. (Luke 16:19-31)

My heart goes out to this generation of the world. Until it repents of its self-centered ways, stops nurturing its flesh, and learns to abstain from sin; if it never looks to Christ as Savior of the world, hell is its destiny. Hell is its reward. Hell is its mirror.
