EWTN Catholic Q&A
Evangelizing teen
Question from Pamela on 10-29-2012:

We have teenager that likes to argue everything from "women's rights" to homosexuality & abortion to authenticity of the Bible to Catholic teachings. We have tried to live, teach, and explain these things consistently from the time he was able to talk. I suppose he is trying to figure out what he believes. We are trying to re-direct him to appropriate resources like the Bible, Catholic catechism, and expert apologists, but he seems drawn to the cafeteria Catholics and non-Catholics for answers. He is bright but a little on the lazy side when it comes to studying and looking at the errors in his views. So how do we evangelize a teen like this? We pray for him and take on the debates, but any other ideas?

Dear Pamela,

Keep praying and doing what your doing.It takes time, as you well know.
