How do we combat apathy within our youth? Number one, question them. Start forcing them to answer questions about what they believe and why they believe it. Introduce questions and challenges, and help them to see that they don’t know as much as they think they know.
Second, you can role-play with them. That has a way of exposing them and letting them see that they don’t know a whole lot. Sometimes, that can be very helpful in waking them up from their apathy.
Get them off the sidelines and into the game. We need to create opportunities for them to get outside those church walls and get into real live conversations with unbelievers, skeptics, atheists, and their non-Christian friends.
