I'm 17 years old and I'm struggling to find God, I have many bibles. I go to many churches but I wish for someone, for many, to take my hand and walk me to his word. I wish to know his name and call him mine, but I feel so clueless. My life is in dismay and I am reaching out for help, but where do I go. I am on a Pilgrimage to seek God, to seek Jesus. Who so ever would like to join me on my journey please respond.

Actually, to be very clear, it says in scripture that the only unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. What does that mean? Essentially, that means witnessing a work of the Holy Spirit and lying, saying that it was not the Holy Spirit. For instance, let's look at Matthew 12:22-32, when Jesus drove out demons from a possessed man. After seeing this, the Pharisees blasphemed the Holy Spirit, denying His power by saying that Beelzebub (a demon) gave Jesus the power to drive out demons. Saying that rejecting Christ is the unforgivable sin is not specific enough. People may reject Him because they see religion and attribute religion to all of what Christianity encompasses. When the Holy Spirit moves, God has planted inside of us, I believe, a seed that responds to the Holy Spirit. Have you been in a prayer meeting or at a worship session where you could feel God's presence, a good sort of heaviness, or an overwhelming desire to worship Him? That is the Holy Spirit moving. Many people say that God doesn't move like He did in the Old Testament, and they may be convinced, but hearing and saying something is very much different than feeling it. Above all else, I pray that God would instill in you a desire to seek His face and His will in your life. God Bless!

Thanks for the reminder, but please don't assume that everyone watching this video has a boring life, hates reading the Bible, and sees prayer as a chore. If the point is, "don't be self-righteous," then be careful not to put yourself above everyone else. I know plenty of Christian people who are loving, compassionate, and generous, who don't come down on others because of their vocabulary, and who have very exciting lives passionately serving the Lord.

East Texas...I totally get the beautiful message in this video. I give generously (more than my tithe). I have discussed this topic from two perspectives. One, the scenario that the boy gave in the video. He should NOT have been in private school while the American people paid for his food and housing. That is tantamount to theft. Thou shalt not steal. My second perspective references the wording in your post. I agree that I made a mistake in how I worded it. Maybe I should change my language from "no fault of their own" to "making no effort to escape the circumstance they are in". In other words, when a mother is on welfare and has absolutely no desire to better herself or the life for her children aside from wanting more from the government, I believe that should not fall on the American people. Welfare should be a bridge to a new life, not a way of life. I think others are missing the point. I work with people on welfare. I see people accepting government assistance and using drugs daily while on that assistance. When you give those people money, you are enabling them, not helping them. When a young single mom receives government help with housing and food stamps and Medicaid and somehow, someway can still afford to put her child in a private school, she is stealing from you and me. Even if the loving grandparents are paying for the child's schooling while mother receives from the government. The right and noble thing for those grandparents to do, and for the mother to accept, is help with the food and housing, not the private school, especially when the schooling can be obtained at no cost. And yes, I know the public school system is not the most desirable circumstance for many (me included); however, given that scenario, it is the right circumstance. You can still train up your child in the way he should go even if they go to public school. I hope that clarifies my position.

Mr. Hill, I honestly believe Jesus Christ would be ashamed that His name is used to describe people who believe as you do... Where did our Lord say we were only to help those who need help through no fault of their own? You missed the beautiful message in this video... I pray that your eyes are opened before it is too late...

As a single mother...I totally agree with what this young man is saying...and it is so sad. I suffer this everyday and so does my son...especially. THE CHURCH WELL AT LEAST MINE DOES NOTHING ABOUT THIS...UNTIL NOW.

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. .. when we fully come to realize that we are saved by Grace alone - and just like a Gift is free, we do not earn or pay for our salvation - we are broken to the core because we realize that what we deserve is death but have been given life. The natural response to this would be an overflowing of joy and love - and therefore if we don't have this response, the question stands: do you truly believe in the good news of the Gospel? Do you believe that Christ died for you personally?

The church in America, wants to be entertained, have their ears tickled, and there is a remnant, making themselves available to God, seeking His Righteousness, seeking His Will for their collective lives, and it is impossible to 'do' anything that is pleasing to God, outside of who we are in Christ. This kid has great ideas, a gift , & he is using his gift, for the Glory of God. I love seeing him in the video window with the daily devotion, he shoots straight, & there are many who do not. When I mention names, my comments tend to be 'erased', but rest assured, there are lots of 'Christian' cheer-leaders making big bucks, who go as far as to call 'some',our "mormon brothers & sisters". Mormonism, is a cult, & it saddens me to see men, call themselves 'men of God', then go on to make a statement like that on CNN! It is all going to work together for good, & that is the only thing that gives me Peace. I hope this young man continues in The word, to 'rattle cages', and to speak TRUTH, & LIFE, letting The God of this universe send one 'to water' the seeds he has planted. I try to remember to keep this young man lifted up in prayer.......because when you preach the Gospel of Grace, the enemy will stop at nothing to stop it. IDK 'what' the big picture is, yet I do not feel I've "missed it", I feel God has a plan, for each of us, & our choices each & everyday, determine what gets accomplished for Gods' Kingdom.

Maybe the loving grandparent should pay for her food and housing instead of having you and I pay for it. If the grandparents can afford private school then they have their priorities mixed up. Feed and house the grandchildren first. Don't have the citizens of the United States feed and house them while the grandparents pay for private school. I SAY AGAIN....we live in a screwed up society with a major ENTITLEMENT mentality. I can remain calm and talk about this civilly, but at some point the tables in the temple have to be overturned.

"How does a mother on food stamps and federal housing afford to send her kid to a school that requires tuition when there are free public schools? " I know a struggling single mom who does this. A loving grandparent pays their way. Don't be quick to assume someone's situation and judge them before learning the circumstances. :)

I think the point is that by us "rejecting" or denying these people and issues we are denying Christ. Does He not say that which you do for the least of these you do also for me?

Sandy...Jesus is the judge. I am not a judge of character and I don't play one on TV. And, I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night. The standard answer with many is "don't judge me". As Christians we are called to hold each other accountable. That's what the whole premise of accountability partners is about. If accountability partners don't hold you accountable (i.e. - judge you and help you correct your sins), then we would all run wild thinking we are not accountable to anyone. The scenario the young man gave did not make sense. I am in social work and just so happen to work with people on welfare (food stamps, Medicaid, govt housing, TANF). Not one single time have I run into a family that is in a position to accept these types of benefits while affording to put their child(ren) through a private school. If they did do such a thing, they would be committing welfare fraud. This is not about judgement. This is about sharing wisdom with a young man that has the wrong perspective of the school's responsibility. Kara...thanks for the response. We do have such a program at our church where a group of men are available to help out single mothers and elderly with tasks such as carpentry, mechanics, etc. We call it the Groomsmen Program.

The Bible is clear the only unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Spirit. All other sin is forgivable but how much better if we strive to not sin in the first place, to be more like Jesus and be obedient to God.

Gary, Didn't Jesus go amongst the sinners and help them. How can you judge His Mother when you don't know her circumstance. However, she did got her son in a Christian School, shows me she was leading Him in the right direction. So many men desert there families and these women are left alone and helpless to raise the children on there own. God Bless You and please let Jesus be the Judge.
