Christian youth and the conundrum of school holidays – Headlines – Headlines, Christians in Cameroon

The school or academic year ends during the vacation period. A moment of rest, relaxation, enjoyment and all kinds of joys. Young Christians, who are an integral part of the system, are swept up in the movement with great disdain for their faith. To better understand this phenomenon, we met with EWANE ELONG ERICK DOUGLAS, Pastor of the Evangelical Assembly of Grace in KOTTO VILLAGE DOUALA, CAMEROON NATIONAL BAPTIST CHURCH since 2017. Follow instead:

Christian Magazine: HELLO KLENESE, HOW TO READ THE CHRISTIAN YOUTH OF OUR TIME?

Pst Eric Evan : Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my views as a Christian and a servant of God through this interview. Indeed, the Christian youth of our day is in the image of the present times, when the season is marked: TOO MUCH DISTRACTION (social media), PLEASURES OF LIFE, LACK OF INTEREST IN THE SUBJECT OF SALVATION AND RETURN. THE RAPTURE OF CHRIST, OR THE CHURCH, DILDE NOT DETERMINING AND THE LOVE OF PEACE. THIS IS WHAT PAUL SAID TO HIS SON TIMOTHY: 2 Timothy 2:22< Bėk nuo jaunystės aistrų ir ieškok teisingumo, tikėjimo, meilės, taikos su tais, kurie tyra širdimi šaukiasi Viešpaties.>>

Christian Magazine: IS THE CHRISTIAN HOLIDAY PERIOD A MOMENT OF REST? ENTERTAINMENT OR RETURN TO GOD? IN BRIEF, HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Pst Eric Evan : NO, vacation should not be a moment of rest for those who know what time it is. The period of entertainment can also be a DANGEROUS TIME during which the devil works with the lure of idleness. This is why Peter praises us in 1 Peter 5:8-9 and Paul in Ephesians 4:14. You must not GIVE UP TO TEMPTATION BUT YOU MUST RESIST to save YOUR SOUL.

NOTE: CONTINUOUS DANGER

Christian Magazine: WHAT IS CHARACTERISTIC OF YOUNG CHRISTIANS DURING THE HOLIDAYS? DID YOU HAVE A PROGRAM IN YOUR ASSEMBLY THIS HOLIDAY?

Pst Eric Evan :THE VACATION OF YOUNG CHRISTIANS, AWARE OF THE DANGERS IN WHICH WE ARE IN THIS END OF TIMES, ARE THE STONES OF STRENGTHENING ON THE SPIRITUAL LEVEL, BUT ALSO THE METHODOLOGY OF A PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, IMPROVEMENT COURSE PROGRAM. 2 Peter 1:3-8<...Jei šito bus jumyse ir jų bus gausu, jie nepaliks jūsų dykinėjančių ir nevaisingų mūsų Viešpaties Jėzaus Kristaus pažinimui.>> Every year for 5 years we organize the program “Holidays for Christ”. This is an intensive program of Spiritual Empowerment, Deliverance and Equipment that takes place every Friday during the 2 and a half month vacation. This year 2022, we are exclusively hosting 1 Friday out of 2.

Christian Magazine: DO YOU THINK THE BODY OF CHRIST IS ADEQUATELY WARNED TO KEEP YOUTH STRESS IN THIS TIME?

Pst Eric Evan : I CAN’T ANSWER YES OR NO BECAUSE OF THE ENVIRONMENT WE LIVE IN AND I WOULD BE WORRIED. I CONSIDER MYSELF YOUNG (50 YEARS OLD) AND MORE THAN 60% OF PASTORS IN CAMEROON ARE LIKE ME, BUT INVENTING CAN. I WILL NOT PASS THE JUDGMENT OF CHRIST BECAUSE HE LEFT US AUTHORITY WITH CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS TO “MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL THE NATIONS” (Mt 28:19-20), HE ADVISED PETER: “WHEN YOU ARE STRONGER. YOUR BROTHERS” (Lk. 22:32) But the reality is that the Body of Christ cares about more important things than the Divine Mandate and its instructions. How will the youth be able to follow what they do not see in their Guides? Young servants of God are not modeled by leaders who embody the values ​​of Christ, but influence them through Blin-blin, Glitter, money, etc… Sanctification, consecration, faith in Christ, faithfulness and integrity are no longer values ​​in this generation. This is a cult of personality, personal development, coaching.

NOTE: THE CROSS AND CROSS SERMON IS NO LONGER RUST BUT A BEAUTIFUL STORY TO TELL.

Christian Magazine: WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF GOOD HOLIDAY MANAGEMENT AS YOUNG CHRISTIANS?

Pst Eric Evan : A YOUNG CHRISTIAN MUST TELL HIMSELF THAT FOR THE SALVATION AND SAFETY OF HIS SOUL, THERE IS NO HOLIDAY, BECAUSE THE DEVIL WILL NOT ALLOW HIMSELF TO PUT OUT OUR LAMPS AND CUT OFF OUR CHRISTIANS. Paul deliberately told Timothy: 1 Timothy 4:16< Saugokis save ir savo mokymą; ATKAIKYKITE ŠIUOSE DALYKUOSE, nes TAIP DARydami JŪS IŠSAUGOSITE SAVE, IR IŠSAUGOSITE JUMS KLAUSOSIUS.>> – Therefore, in this Period we must give ourselves goals to respect:

a) Reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation (this is possible in 3 months, I did it)

b) Decision to make a certain number of students.

c) you face challenges to extend the prayer time (for example, from 1 hour to 3 or 4 hours)

d) Learn to play an instrument well or a new instrument if you already do. THERE ARE MANY CHALLENGES AND IT’S MOTIVATING.

Christian Magazine: HOW TO ESCAPE THE PASSIONS OF YOUR YOUTH IN PERIA, WHERE TEMPTATION IS GREAT?

Pst Eric Evan : In fact, the devil is not only at work during the holidays with his works of seduction, but all the time. You must be wise and know that the devil seeks your soul to sift you like wheat (Luke 22:31). Therefore, you must discipline yourself, avoid dangerous distractions (the best are in Christ: worship time with friends, outdoor evangelism, Christian educational games, quizzes, etc.) It is necessary to flee from bad company, because they spoil good morals.

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY
