Welcome, Jerry! It's wonderful to have older brethren here with us with long experience in the testimony. As a young brother, I can say from my own short experience that the long experience of others has been of immense help to me. I remember a time when I was gathered with the brethren once, and at the beginning of the occasion I was moved by the Spirit to stand up and share an impression. Near the end of the time, a brother in his late 80's also got up and an shared his impression. Afterwards another brother said to me that what we'd seen there that evening was both youth and experience. I suppose we need youth, we need young brethren to take up the testimony, to take on responsibility, and fill up the ranks, but we young folk need to learn from the experience of those who've gone on before.

hello softly. When I was about 16 I joined a youth group at church and as I listened and enjoyed being with teens about my age the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and convicted me of my sins and showed me about the love of Jesus, and how I could have my sins forgiven, by believing that he died for me and rose again from the dead.

thank you Grant, for the nice welcome. Yes we do need youth to carry on the good fight of faith as well as mature Christians who have some experience in understanding the Scriptures. In my personal life I rely onrightly dividing the word of Godbecause I know that all of the Bible was written for us but not all of the Bible was written to us, making a big difference in understanding.
