Yesterday during my evening commute, I was on the phone with my significant other. He was talking about many of the youth today and he said they were “Godless.” He then made some scriptural reference which landed me out of my depth; I have not studied religious texts in at least 20 years.
I listened as he made his point, then I said, “I would never call anyone Godless, say they don’t have a relationship with God.” He concurred stating that people do have God, something that they worship. That would be the an idol and not what I meant. I left it alone because it was a point tangential to what he was trying to say. However, we must revisit the conversation soon because it is an important one.
I need for him to know what I believe. And need to know that there we share some ideology around it. Everyone has God. God is a part of all of us, within us. Perhaps we haven’t connected with God and as children were necer taught to. But to label someone as Godless is, in my eyes, the cruelest description you can bestow. There are some that I believe fit in this category who seem driven by an indescribable evil but not a large segment of our youth. They are lost and need to understand who they are, tap into their purpose and know they are indeed a child of God.
Holla if you hear me!
