LTRP Note: Because Awanas now promotes contemplative spirituality, we are providing the comments below, which are from “Just the Book” wesite regarding the recent Awana Summit conference. If your children are involved with Awanas, we hope you will encourage the leaders of Awana to steer clear of contemplative spirituality and the emerging church.
Parental Alert: What Awana Leaders Are Saying:
(Just the Book)
Wouldn’t it have been wonderful if the AWANA Summit 2007 speakers taught about Jesus and God’s great love for teens, how to have a relationship with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and how important it is to love God’s Word. That did not happen….
I am so appalled and grieved at the speakers ambivalent, conflicting, guilt-producing, and convuluted statements regarding God and His Word, and that they never told the group how great God is, how much He loves them and how they can have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and how the Holy Spirit and God’s Word will guide them.
