MAINSTREAM STATS AND QUOTES ON 25 OF SOME OF LIFE’S TOUGHEST TOPICS TEENS STRUGGLE WITH TODAY, AND THE BIBLE’S RESPONSE TO THEM.
These tough topics are provided as a resource for students to see how Jesus and the Bible can help in some of the hardest struggles in life.
We are not replacing these discussions for medical help. We strongly encourage anyone with a medical diagnosis to seek professional help and guidance. The stats and quotes used are pulled from a diversity of sources; most of them less than 10 years old. We do not claim these stats and quotes are absolute truth and do not believe every topic discussed is inherently bad. The purpose of each first paragraph is to reveal stats and quotes from mainstream sources about the growing struggles teens may have regarding each topic. The purpose of each second paragraph is to reveal God’s perspective by seeing what the Bible says regarding each topic and how we can receive help and guidance in our life’s purpose through a relationship with Jesus. The purpose of this booklet as a whole is to bring to light the growing struggles teens are facing regarding topics that are tough to talk about. Our desire is for everyone to realize their purpose in life through a relationship with Jesus Christ and guidance from the Bible.
The word “bible” is from the Greek “ta biblia”, which means “the scrolls” or “the books” and was written by God through over 40 human authors of different backgrounds, professions and ethnicities, over the span of about 1,500 years, in three languages, on three continents, totaling 66 books in multiple genres with hundreds of topics, but the one theme that God loves us and through Jesus Christ offers eternal life and forgiveness of sins, that whosoever would believe in Him would be saved from sin and death and called to live their destiny on earth and in the eternal paradise of heaven with God forever.
