Effect is a loss of innocence, kids not becoming disciples
Quality is of every member in the family
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12 NIV)

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20 NIV)
It is easy to loose touch with my identity.
God is obsessed about me, those who love Him and spend time with Him. God has a great vision for our lives.
I just want to be what everyone else is and do what they want to do.
Think about who you are in Gods site. God rejoices over us. Royalty have boundaries.
3. Stay connected – It is like a cellphone call

Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways. Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman, from the wayward woman with her seductive words, who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God. Surely her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the dead. None who go to her return or attain the paths of life. (Proverbs 2:12-19 NIV)
Written to the young men of Israel
