How can a young man keep his way pure?
By guarding it according to thy word.
With my whole heart I seek thee;
let me not wander from thy commandments!
I have laid up thy word in my heart,
that I might not sin against thee. (Psalm 119:9-11)

Young people living in this age, the age of entertainment; and the highest paying forms of entertainment today revolve around sex and violence! In this generation that is bombarded from every side by evil and wickedness, cushioned by a lukewarm and sleeping church, patted by busy parents and the disintegration of the traditional child raising ‘village’: How can a young man keep his way pure?
