The Rebelution: Rebellion vs. Rebelution

Rebellion vs. Rebelution

One of the most common expectations our society has for teenagers is that we are incurably rebellious. Indeed, it was the “storm and stress” model of young adulthood that served as the foundation for the modern concept of adolescence, sparking the cultural redefinition of the teen years in the first half of the 1900s.

But like so many of the culture-shaping psychological studies of the twentieth century, the theory of teenage “storm and stress” was inherently flawed, based primarily on observation of teen psychological patients—hardly a representative sample. No wonder we are taught that the teen years are inevitably filled with emotional turmoil, rebellion, and angst.

Of course, this new way of looking at the teen years didn’t create teenage rebellion, but it normalized it. Suddenly young people had an excuse for indulging in the foolishness the Bible commanded them to flee (2 Timothy 2:22). And what’s more, they were backed by “science.” Rebellion was now an expected thing.

These expectations played out primarily in the lives of previous generations (most evidently in the youth of the 60s and 70s) but their residual effects continue to haunt us today. The expectations have not changed, and many rebellious young people remain assured that their behavior is not only normal, it’s healthy.

One result of this prevailing attitude, which has occupied my thoughts lately, is the seeming inability (the Bible calls it “pride” and “foolishness”) we teens have to learn from the mistakes or counsel of past generations, particularly our parents. We have to “get burned” before we learn, or so it goes.

As Christian young people, as rebelutionaries, we must wage war against that mindset. We do ourselves an incalculable disservice by ignoring the means of grace God has given us in the form of our parents, grandparents, and the other godly men and women in our lives.

A World Unbroken | Hope and Healing for a Shattered World | teen devos and more | Scoop.it

"We have created AWorldUnbroken.com to be a platform to help you live out your dreams that have developed from journeying through the story of God. It is about actively engaging the story of God on your campus, in your community, and in this world. This experience is designed to form you spiritually and show you the healing attributes of displaying Christlike love to a broken and shattered world.

We’ve also created a devotional for teens where you will have opportunities to dream and then act upon those very dreams by engaging in God’s story and participate in his mission to restore the world to its intended wholeness."
