What do I mean, prove it? The uprising generation has a wealth of knowledge. Or at least accessible to an abundance of knowledge. You can pretty much google anything you want. The internet is a wealth of information both for good and for the ugly.
The younger generation has grown up and taught to think critically. You can easily see that when the elderly go to the doctor. The elderly often listens to the healthcare professional. Do the younger generation? They may, but often times they do research before and after. They need to be shown and proven.
Teenagers and young adults won’t just accept truth, they need to be shown that it is actually truth. So pastor, when you preach, show them!
How can a pastor prove a truth? Isn’t belief involved? How do you manufacture belief? Yes, belief is involved and that is something only God can do and I am not suggesting us to pretend to be God. Let me explain how to prove truth.
I wish I did not have to include this one, but I can’t assume anymore. Is your congregation opening their Bibles. Or are we just listening to a person talk and taking what they say as truth? Take us through studying Scripture.
