Re: “SUSTO’s Justin Osborne grapples with his Christian upbringing in “Chillin’ on the Beach with My Best Friend Jesus Christ"

To answer the above question about "Why are some youth pastors compelled to ......", I believe this youth pastor of whom I have great respect and appreciation for, saw that Justin Osborne has charisma and influence. His peers since youth have followed him on all sorts of adventures and wanted to be part of whatever "Justin" was promoting. It was evident to the youth pastor and evident to me. He can lead people in the right direction or lead them astray! With this God given gift/talent also comes great responsibility AND accountability! When Justin was in Junior Hi he had a T-shirt printed that said, "Hey, I live here and stuff". Sounds ridiculous but all of his friends went out and got shirts printed with that on it as well. He also started what was known as "The Hard Core Club" and had many members that met on a regular basis. So, the youth pastor was spot on. I can honestly see Jesus "chillin" on the beach with Justin or any of us and even drinking a beer....He did turn the water into wine. The song is catchy and fun. I even catch myself singing it. BUT, to see the actors in the scene under the tent pretending to be filled with the Holy Spirit bothered me. It still grieves me greatly. "God will not be mocked". Justin will have to answer for this one day and will be held to a higher accountability because he did accept Christ as his Lord and Savior. He DOES know the bible.... He and I were baptized together at the YMCA pool.This was a step that HE wanted to take and was in NO way forced. So he knows TRUTH and he could be an unstoppable force for good and spread the gospel of hope, love, forgiveness and mercy and ever-lasting life to so many that are searching for answers in a world that is out of control. Jesus is everywhere. Christians live all over the world. Southerners don't have a patent on Christianity. P.S. Don't be mad at me Justin! I'm just exercising my right to FREE speech just like you do with your music that I don't always agree with. I will always love you forever, no matter what! I'm still praying and believing that the desires of your heart will change and that you will have a "Road to Damascus" experience just like the apostle Paul had and that all of this running from God and living like the devil will one day be part of your extraordinary testimony that you will be singing about to audiences and friends everywhere.
