Yes, we are involved in a local church. I believe that a portion of my son’s questioning comes from us leaving a church we were involved in and the circumstances surrounding our last encounters with the senoir and assoc. Pastors.
We are involved with youth heavily. My wife and I along with 2 other couples lead the youth group of about 20.
My son is 17. He is an ultra intravert. He is a deep thinker. School comes easy to him as far as work. He has OCD and some health issues.
He is a big techie. He seems to watch alot of youtube and takes what je hears as gospel.
He recently, last summer had a school friend pass in a 1 vehicle accident. That got him really thinking about why. One question I can remember is why would an otherwise “good” kid have this happen if God loves him? I dont know if the boy was a believer.
This also brought about another question. “If I committed a crime and was sent to prison, in the “fall” of man, why would God put my grandchildren and my grandchildrens grandchildren in prison for what I did and payed for?”
This is the question that removed all else from my path. I have no games on my phone, I have immersed myself into apologetics, and on the plus side, have hit my knees much more than ever.
I want to help my son, but feel helpless. This is where the spirit steps in.
