Cynicism

Strategy is a key to unlocking a culture !


1Cr 13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

World history is at the pinnacle of discovery in terms of technology, innovation and the evolution of human thinking. unfortunately there seems to be a wider sense of cynicism around. often we relate this to people who disbelieve in God, religion or some political view. Cynicism is a part of the postmodern culture, the result and combination of the present influences, like music, tv , peer pressure and the intolerance that’s so obvious amongst our young people. I believe that cynicism is creeping in our culture, off setting our young people who need our support and knowing that many are left to there own devices. No longer living from any real spiritual grounding. Cynicism is evident in families life, school, work even amongst our leaders and Authorities demonstrating harsh religious practices, leaving our young people them feeling void of L.O.V.E and the absense of belonging.

This massage is a call to consider the lost, it’s time to be real people, touching our generation. Remembering the hurting people, who needs to hear more than the phrase “Jesus love you”. Do you love them?
Is it in us to love the indifferent?
or those who are weak in there faith?
It’s time to step up to the call

Rom 14:1 Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.
Rom 14:2 One man’s faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.

Rom 14:4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

The key to get through cynicism is dialogue, honest conversation and the freedom for people to speak their mind. Our young people need this, I don’t know your culture or country but in the UK we face a stiff challenge were young people are far from faith. The majority has never read the bible before. I believe they are exposed to church but the bible is distant knowledge to them. Unfortunately they see no connection with it.

My prayer today is for young people, teenager, gang members, juveniles that need the love of God and the attention of believers who know the compassion and mercy of God. Knowing the love of jesus can break though any level of cynicism.

  1. Well said!! I agree wholeheartedly! I was always taught that love is spelled “T I M E”. I think that’s part of problem…a lot of people don’t take the time to teach our youth all that used to be taught. Like a lost tradition…it is very very heartbreakingly sad.

    • Thanks for comment Christina, you are one of many who can see the bigger picture. I hope millions more world wide would see in there own communities and culture, knowing it’s possible for us all to make “HISTORY”

  2. Thank you! I have three children so…I feel obligated to raise them to the very best of my ability!!! They are amazing gifts and I agree, the best way to change the world is one person at a time…or one child! 🙂

    • I appreciate you sharing this, ” It makes sense to me now. It takes courage and strength to live for a higher purpose than ourself knowing our children needs us as they grow in a cynical world, full of the love we give them to make “history” Thanks Christina, it seems there is a lot of healing going around in these posts am reading these day’s thats why we need to keep posting and sharing.
      Many thanks!

  3. Hey there, I am from the U.S. and I am feeling called to live authentically in Christ. I believe that people authentically loving others and living through Christ will dispel cynicism, and those who were reluctant to respond positively to Christ will open up, because they will not be responding to me, but to Christ instead. Anything built on me is sure to be a deterrent at best or repulsive to those who are seeking authentic Christianity.

    • Great to hear your view, your frame of reference is great and important to know but it might not be the same for some one in Japan, south Africa even London, England. The reality is the Solutions are in the scriptures like the one I mentioned 1cor 13:1, so I’m confident God will work it out. As you said in my words
      ” if it’s no built on any ones opinion”
      The culture of God and the presence of tradition if religious of political has alway been a hinderance in church history. Let not be blind to the lingering culture that’s trying to kill, steel and destroy our young people Malachi 4:6
      Thanks Tony, with blessings
