Today's teenagers are really a sad lot. Many are simply sex craved kids obsessed with their rock and roll music. Others are druggies who are blasting out their brain cells. They have been raised in godless homes with godless and reprobate parents who want nothing to do with the Lord. Sadly, most kids do not know the difference between Noah and Moses in the Bible. Others don't even know about Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden!
Are lost people happy? Can they handle the stresses and problems of life? The answer is no they cannot. The Christian has the advantage as the Lord walks close to His people. A Christian still hurts, goes through painful trials, and suffers in this evil world. But the Lord is their God and helper in times of trouble. The wicked do not share this blessing as they are all alone. Here is what the Bible says:
22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.
As a result many lost, hellbound kids and adults have trouble coping with the pains, stresses, and trials of this life. I have seen lost people lose loved ones and been unable to cope with the separation. They have no hope, they have no peace, and they have no comfort.
Below is a sad trend about how some lost teens are dealing with stress. Rather than casting their care upon the Lord like a Christian does, these teens cope in other ways. Sadly, some of these ways are very destructive and painful.
These people need the Lord Jesus but sadly we live in a day when most reject Him. They want no part of salvation and eternal life in heaven. Instead, lost people would rather enjoy their sins of sexual immorality, rock music, occultism etc. It is no surprise some cannot cope! Here is the very sad article:
Teens Doing Self-Mutilation to Deal With Stress
One in four young girls do something to their bodies called self-mutilation
By Jackelyn Barnard First Coast News
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- It's a disturbing new trend in teens. One in four young girls do something to their bodies called self-mutilation.
In 19-year-old Esther Maassen's case, a razor blade, basically anything sharp is what she would use on her feet.
"Anything sharp so I could see myself bleed," she says.
Why she does it may surprise you.
"A lot of people don't get it. They drink when they get upset or something. We cut."
It's not a suicide attempt but an addiction. Those who do it say it helps to relieve stress.
"It wasn't the children you would suspect," says mom and Jacksonville school teacher, Kathi Wedner. She has seen first hand kids who cut. Wedner saw her own students doing it, but she says she never suspected her own daughter.
"She cut a design into her wrist. It was sadness. It was guilt. It was shock. I wanted very desperately to help her."
Girls are more likely than boys to self-mutilate. Middle to high school aged girls are the most at risk. Duval County school psychologist, Dr. David Chesire, says he's heard of a child as young as six-years-old cutting their body. "It's very secretive and these kids do anything they can to hide the fact they have been engaged in these behaviors and those close to them have no idea it's happening."
It's an addiction that leaves kids with scars from their arms to their chests. It's an addiction Esther Maassen is still fighting. "It's the only thing that sometimes can calm me down and it becomes really addictive and I'm still trapped into it."
Signs parents need to look for: unexplained cuts and scratches that never seem
to heal; cuts and scratches paired with signs of depression or low self-esteem;
kids who wear long, baggy clothing in the summer to cover up their bodies.

These people need the Lord Jesus but they will not come! Yet the offer is still given!
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Canada has been the leader even over the USA in turning their back on God while loving and flaunting evil and sin. Canada was the leader in same-sex marriages and in passing laws that declare the Bible is hate literature where it speaks of sodomy.
In days past, the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha for their sins of sodomy. He strictly warns that the same fate lies ahead for nations in future that do the same! Sodom and Gomorrha were just an example for people not to do the same sins. Here is what the Bible says:
2 Pet 2
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
Judgment will certainly fall by God's method and in God's time! When God's judgment comes it will happen very suddenly and the destruction will be complete! The only thing that can stop this impending Divine judgment is for the people to repent and turn from their sin. Will this happen in either the USA or Canada? I would say NO, no, no! The people are way to proud and in love with their sin, rejection of God, and love of rebellion to the Lord! People will not humble themselves before the Lord and turn from their love of sin and evil. Therefore, judgment is coming. Both Canada and the USA are bringing the day closer as they provoke the Lord with their increasing love of evil.
Below is an article that describes very "weird" weather affecting Canada. To some it is just a fluke of nature. But watch for disasters to hit Canada (and the USA who is not far behind) again and again! Judgment is coming! Remember the example of Sodom and Gomorrha!
Canada's weather has gone completely topsy-turvy
Canada's weather has gone completely topsy-turvy, said an Environment Canada expert.
It's hot and dry in B.C. and the Yukon
Heavy downpours flood Edmonton
Grande Prairie, Alta. was hit by a funnel cloud
Some places in the Arctic have been warmer than Toronto on some days
The East, which should be sweltering, is cool; Ontario has had the smallest number of forest fires in decades
"It's almost like the weather is upside down," said Dave Phillips in Toronto.
"The explanation is we're seeing a lot more Canadian air, northerly air over the country."
There is a cold low-pressure system that just won't budge, he said. "Its sort of like an unwanted house guest, its just staying around too long."
For farmer Edward Preston, the weird weather is hitting him in the pocketbook. "the bigger ones, what you call the eggs of the berries, aren't there this year," he said, displaying a few scrawny strawberries.
"There's been no hot heat for the berries," he said.
The last time Canadian weather was this wacky was 1992, when the world's weather patterns were disrupted by the explosion of a volcano. ...continued...
As you can see weather is not normal right now in Canada. Here is a description of a freak storm that hit a Canadian city:
Edmonton storm tab: Tens of millions Storm strands hundreds of shoppers
Jul. 12, 2004. 04:45 PM
`I have never seen anything like this'
PHILIP MASCOLL STAFF REPORTER
EDMONTON - Damage was estimated in the tens of millions of dollars today, the day after a severe hailstorm flooded hundreds of homes and parts of Canada's largest shopping complex - West Edmonton Mall. Under a bright blue sky, the cleanup continued throughout the city in the wake of a deluge that swamped roads, basements and cars with up to 150 millimetres of rain. Environment Canada officials called it "a one in 200-year storm."
Shop employees used vacuums and squeegees to clean up their stores as the mall opened for business only 18 hours after thousands of people were evacuated because of the torrent. ...continued...
Stormy weather also spawned funnel clouds north of the city and a tornado to the east that tore roofs off buildings.
Sunday's storm was the latest chapter in what has become northern Alberta's summer of soggy misery.
Heavy rains have saturated Edmonton for more than a week and in northern Alberta spawned a tornado that damaged buildings in downtown Grande Prairie Thursday.

When God judges He will send many warning judgments. People can repent and turn from their evil ways. Yet Canada is a proud, godless, and prosperous people. Will they humble themselves and repent of their sin? I would say No they will not. Therefore, just watch as more and more judgments hit the land of Canada. One day of God's choosing, there will be a massive judgment similar in scale to what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah!
