You tell me your view of God and I'll tell you what kind of college you will choose to go to; who you will date; marry; places of entertainment you will frequent; in fact, your view of God will affect not only what you do, but what you become. Don't start believing that God is mean and uncaring. Do not forget that He said, "I have come that you might have life...more abundantly". "No good think will He withhold from them that walk uprightly".
Morris Gleiser was a church youth pastor for twenty years in Florida and Missouri. He also directed a teen camp ministry in Arizona for five years.
