I just read a disturbing article and also saw the story on the news. 17 MA girls, all under 16, are pregnant at the same time. They girls in the school made a pact to get pregnant so they could “raise their babies together”. Lets look at this picture though. Yes we know kids are having sex at younger ages, but this is totally different. The school did 150 pregnancy tests. Did you read that 150! That means that there were even more girls who wanted to get pregnant. They were having sex with random people and one of them with a homeless guy just so they could raise their babies together.
Did you know that not 2006 was the first year of an increase in the pregnancy rate in teens since 1991? Teen pregnancy is increasing for the first time when the years previous it was declining.
Why is this. Sure the world has a ton of problems. Christianity is getting a bad wrap so therfore God and His hope does too. The idea of family has been twisted so kids think sex is something that can be done outside of marraige with no consequences. Teens think that because they don’t have a dad or their parents are gay that that’s ok.
The bible talks a ton about the model for family and we are missing that in the world today.
The church needs to step up. not to call people out for being like this, but to show the hope of Christ.
Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy.
