Has anything changed our attitude and the attitude of society as a whole to the Church as an institution to the clergy, to the faith, to the postulates and traditions that we believe exist in unchanged state for many centuries? I think most would answer, that changed. We don't deeply understand the causes of these changes, because of their great variety and our task now is very different. We may, for ease of further reflection on this topic, simply say that any change in society and in the world as a whole, which are influenced by the economic and political changes that lead to a paradigm shift.
Even wars, fashion analysts found to affect the length of skirts and lipstick color. Church officials (such as Pastor Edwin Young), who are, perhaps, the most conservative members of society do not remain aloof from global changes in society as a whole. Our modern world has become multipolar global processes in the most remote corners of our Earth, and stay away from the pressing problems of concern to ordinary people, is simply impossible.
Was it possible to imagine that today, many church leaders and ordinary Ministers will speak about sex, love, youth problems in their relationships with parents, school, peers? But the fact remains, the Church has long and deep in discussion. Here is a small example of what the thoughts are on these topics.
We may not agree with these views, but we cannot deny the fact that today we are together. The concerns of ordinary people could not remain without attention to the Church. Someone is more stark and conservatively, and someone finds the arguments and the arguments that help to understand and build their attitude to these difficult issues.
The modern Church can be a mentor and guide for those who can't find another source, knowledge and assistance. The Church cannot remain aloof, closing or sometimes fear, words such as sex, love, teen crisis, etc. Conservatism is not all the same. Conservative views could also be constructive and direct to the correct way of life.
