Old Time Religion

In chapter 8, I see some ideas from Sister Kelly’s writings that the church I grew up in still believes today. One quote that stuck out to me was when she writes, “honey, right now, you young folks is blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of God’s name; that can’t last, you gonna change do you hear me? We can’t do no good unless we got God in our heart, and our heads, too.” This is something that I have heard reiterated over and over again. Older people always think that that younger people are too wordly and full of sin and do not know God. Later on, Sister Kelly goes on to claim that young people in general are just awful. I wonder what she would have to say if she saw today’s current generation.
