Well, I tell you right now unbelievers will not change the world for the better. It will have to be God's people. Old or young, does not matter. Furthermore, God does not care about it. Age that is.

Proverbs 16:31 Gray hair is a crown of splendor, it is attained by a righteous life.
Proverbs 20:29 The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old.
I love older people they are full of wisdom. If the younger ones would just stop being so "all knowing" and listen to their elders they would learn a thing or two. I am in home health and 99.9% of the time my patients are older them me. I think I get as much out of them as they do me. They been there and done that people.

I love being around older people, I learn so much! I've found my 'surrogate Dad' right here on CN and he's a dear! He's lived a life and I've learned from him. I hope he knows what an effect he's had on my life, I'm leaning patience and and a kind of love only a dear Dad can give. Hugs Pop!

I just turned 58(ugh)and I have many young people who I know, or who write me looking for help in their Christian growth.
I in turn love sharing with older people, I learn so much about their Christian walk and what I want to be 'when I grow up!'
'Reverence for the past insures the future.'

Isn't it strange when you have a mormon on a Christian website, ordering the Christians around, demanding his "rites" - masonic, that is.
Isn't it bizarre that a mormon apologist is fighting so hard to put the cat back into the bag, that CAT HAS RUN AWAY.

Ashley: From your blogs I am understanding you are not a youth. No disrespect but you clearly show in your blogs you need to be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. You don't show very much love towards anyone here on the blog and your understanding of spiritual things are way off base. Please pray and ask the Lord for more wisdom and guidance. We are not the enemies here. If you let us, we can show love to you and direction. God bless you hon

Thank you, you just proved me correct. Why should the older generation share anything with a generation of vipers that couldn't care less about learning truth. Everyone is so quick to judge everyone else, but look in the mirror. Many here need to repent and change. Beliefs have nothing to do with it either. If you loved Jesus Christ more than lip service you would see miracles from God that would astound you, but you never will because your hearts are so far from the one person you owe everything to.

2-there is no respect in the world now. denominations has nothing to do with it either. I've seen the hand of God work around me many times. Would I share that with anyone here. Never again. why, many couldn't care less about spiritual things. As I said, we lived history, we don't have to read about it on a computer screen. We were there in person. Blackout of 64, JFK, Cuban missile crisis, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luthor King, watergate, man steps on the moon, the challenger explosion, cold war, etc.

3- instead of saying thank God I am alive and able to enjoy freedom of speech and attend any church I wish, people instantly attacked my beliefs. I got news for you. If it wasn't for my parents and the parents, uncles and aunts of every citizen in North America, you would be speaking German under the third reich now and have no freedom. I don't believe many false doctrines taught here, but I will defend those rights to the death for you to believe them. That is what separates the elderly from the youth.

Ashley, your emotionalism has overwhelmed you.
The wheels of Christianity are round. When you push the mormonism cart with square wheels, you're bound to have a bumpy ride.

You've spent 50 years studying an old dead mens bones religious cult. It's time you let it bite the dust.
Come out from the walking dead and come over into the Promised Land of the living.
Renounce your false religion and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
---Sarah on 6/19/07

I gained knowledge to grow spiritually and in wisdom for fifty years. What do I get in return. Nothing but arguments, condemnation and ridicule because the youth think they know everything. Fifty years, studying the gospel in depth, so we recognize false doctrines are pushed aside by many. They believe they know everything by studying the bible for a few months. We lived history that many only read about. Our parents and grandparents wrote history and invented many things the youth take for granted.

Love and mentor someone else. Sharing your Godly wisdom in an atmosphere of true Christian love will change a life.
---LL on 6/19/07

Well if you dont feel like you can get on the "frontlines" you can back up the youth who want to get on the front line w/ mentoring, accountablity, intercesery prayer, or financial support...
Thats just as needed as getting in the front

rudy,the greatest thing anyone can do is allow the holy spirit to change become a true disciple of jesus is the ultimate change.the world as a whole will never change until its time long as there is sin in the world.the change is in us.

Share the word of God whenever possible. Leave the rest up to God. You have his guarantee that his word will accomplish what he has intended it to do and will never be useless.

To the extent you become more like Christ, you have by that changed the world for the better.
---Jack on 6/17/07

We can always pray.That is a great ministry for anyone. Prayer changes things and people.We can do good in our own neighborhood. Give food to the hungry, shoes and clothes to the poor. Participate with other ministries in giving and helping out where we can.Volunteers are needed in churches and social organizations. Share the gospel with our neighbors, co workers. This is making a huge difference. So much more older people can do.

Older people and people in general of faith do change the world by just being people of faith. Scripture tells us that the faith of a grain of mustard seed can move a mountain, or "change the world."
---Debbie_Jo on 6/17/07

They can pray for the world, and specifically, the teachers of the Word and the parents raising children today. They can be teachers of the Word, and disciple younger people. They can be role models for how to endure trials and tribulations.

The best way is showing their Christian testimony. We've, (I'm 70), been through a great deal. We can tell others, "Look, I've
lived long enough to know God is real and my faith has grown and matured over the years. Stay focused on Christ and not on what the non-Christian element says." You also have the practical side. Right now I grow tomatoes for a Christian food bank. (They are given to them, not sold.)
