Some teens from my youth group said to me the other day, "I don't understand God. If He knows everything and knows what's gonna happen to me, and knows that I'm saved, then if I sin, what does it matter? I'm already saved right? So I just wanna have fun and this Christianity seems at times a bit boring."

I was glad they were opening up to me but I was also not ready to give an answer (or the right answer for that matter). Can you guys help me with this?

Thank you,

Thanks for the email. That's a good question. Kids can ask some real "whoppers" at times.

I think the best thing to do with a question like that is first, "acknowledge that it's a good question and encourage him/her for asking it." Tell him that he's not alone. Others have wondered the same thing.
