This Sunday morning I'll be preaching at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills on "Becoming a Dangerous Christian," I'd love to see you there!  

And, don't forget the upcoming Religion on the Line event with Dennis Prager and me, moderated by Steve Arterburn, coming up on Sunday, February 21, from 400-600pm, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Anaheim.  Tickets are now on sale at www.kkla.com.

400-408Robert Epstein, teaches at UC San Diego, former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, and author 14 books including The Case Against Adolescence: Rediscovering the Adult in Every Teen.  This April he'll be coming out with a book entitled Teen 2.0:  Saving Our Children and Families from the Torment of Adolescence (teen20.com).  We debunk the mythology of the teenage brain.  E.g., in the same way that we all recognize universal toddlerhood, why don't we recognize universal teenagerhood?  The very fact that we don't mitigates against the teenage brain.

428-437Jeff Schadt, Executive Director of Youth Transition Network (YouthTransitionNetwork.org), and their transition site for students is liveabove.com.  Their focus is on helping young adults transition from high school to college.  In his research with thousands of Christian teens, he's found out they define "hypocrisy" as "leading an intentionally deceptive life," and they report the majority of their youth groups are filled with "hypocrites."  In fact, if you're sexually active, you actually gain status in youth group because you've been to the Forbidden Island.  The sexual pressure is intense in Christian schools, far more than in secular schools.  The bottom line is that we've got to do a far better job at preparing our kids to launch.  The problem isn't really intellectual, it's social.  The problem isn't about worldview and knowledge as much as it is about culture and obedience.  Jeff's research shows that if kids are introduced into a Christian social group before they arrive on campus, we're not going to lose them.  Hence, the whole purpose of their Succeed Event coming up on February 27, 2010, designed for parents to attend with their children.  Go to succeed2010.com for more information on how you can participate, or even become a host site.  Also, Going, Going, Gone comes out in conjunction with the Succeed Event.
