Teenager Rejecting God.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


What do I do when my 17 year old says there is no God and religion? We have been going to church and practicing faith since all 3 of my children were small but out of all of them, she now says that prayers are useless and there is no God. what do I do?


Challenging the views of their parents’ is what teenagers are supposed to do. Don’t argue with her, just agree with her that at this point in her life God is not a real experience for her. May be it will later, or maybe it won’t, but many wise people have dedicated their lives to uncover their deepest truths, and a 17 year old is not is a position to deny the truth these others have attained.

If she can at least acknowledge that there may be more to know about life than she has yet experienced or learned, then she will at least be open to spirituality later in life when she finds herself ready and motivated to look beyond her youthful skepticism.

    You guys crack me up...I can't help but find a smile on my face with all the miscommunication going on.....Doesn't seem like any of the post make any seperation between spirituality and religion. They 'can' overlap but it isn't necessary. I'm spiritual but no longer am prey to secularized religion. And I know many religious people who have absolutely no sprituality....one deoesn't need/guarantee the other. It's an old arguement where first the symantics require being ironed out and going back to the oldest faiths..."it doesn't matter which path we take to get there it is 'our' path. Respect all paths". Come on guys be tolerant and appreciate that there are places in the world you can practice without being executed for your beliefs.
