2.) THEY NEED YOU TO CARE AS MUCH ABOUT THEIR STRUGGLES AS YOU DO ABOUT THEIR SALVATION.

3.) THEY NEED YOU TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THEY ARE ASKING.

4.) THEY NEED YOU TO STOP PROTECTING THEM.

5.) THEY NEED TO SEE GOD AS MORE THAN RULES AND CHURCH ATTENDANCE.

6.) THEY NEED TO SEE YOUR STRUGGLES AND DOUBTS.
