Teenagers hostile to biblical faith want to know why Christians are so hateful. This accusing question is the result of “gay rights” propaganda.
Nehemiah personally joined the workers laboring to rebuild the city walls of Jerusalem (Neh. 4:23). Why? He was the governor of Judah. Didn’t he understand that becoming a servant is beneath the dignity of a good leader?
American men seem to think that Christian faith is for women and sissies. Where does this misconception come from? It doesn’t come from the Bible. A true Christian man is a warrior (Eph. 6:10-17).

The Bible teaches both slaves and masters to remember the Master in heaven (Eph. 6:5-9). The basic principles implied in this teaching also apply to workers and employers in a free society.
The Bible is rich with instruction that helps young people succeed in the adult world. As our high school seniors graduate, what may they learn from Paul’s letter to the Romans (13:8-12)?
