Gen Z and the Responsibility of a Post-Roe Generation

G

Forty-nine years ago, when Roe became law, my grandparents were the same age I am today. In one generation, we’ve witnessed the beginning and end of Roe. Within the span of that generation, millions of lives have been lost, countless battles fought, and now the casket containing Roe v. Wade has been nailed shut. Abortion is no longer the law of the land and an unconstitutional ruling of forty...

4 Ways the Gospel Changes a Teen’s Life

4

Most Christians would say they believe the gospel. But not all Christians live like they believe the gospel. The gospel—the good news—isn’t like any other news in the world. The gospel hits deep into the core of a person and flows through every part of life. It shows us the true condition of ourselves—sinners who deserve God’s judgment—and provides the only way of salvation. Most of us who are...

Disney’s LGBTQ+ Agenda and the Degenderization of Society

D

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of one day being Cinderella. I would sit riveted in front of the TV as I watched my favorite Disney princess experience her happily ever after. Castles and fairytales, glass slippers and princes took up my five-year-old brain space and I was lost in the innocence and wonder of it all. The power fairytales have upon young minds is nearly as strong as the power...

Raise your hand if you enjoy being on the hot seat. No one? Really? I get it. Neither do I. It’s awkward and uncomfortable when you find yourself in the middle of conversations about, frankly, really awkward and uncomfortable topics. Yet as followers of Jesus, we’re called to share the gospel and share God’s total truth about all of life. That’s bound to make for some...

5 Steps to Conquering a Pornography Addiction

“Just save sex for marriage” is often the sole encouragement offered in conversations about sex and purity, but there are many other more specific struggles in this area. Countless teens battle pornography addictions, wrestle with masturbation or erotica, or deal with lustful thoughts. Introduce these topics and the conversation about purity gets more complicated. How do we biblically handle...

Announcing The Rebelution’s New Book: Stand Up, Stand Strong by Sara Barratt

Today’s generation of teens is facing challenges no generation before has dealt with. We’re navigating a culture of smartphones, social media, on-demand TV, gender fluidity, same-sex marriage, abortion, and rampant addiction. We face hard questions that our parents and grandparents didn’t have to answer when they were growing up. How should I respond to #BlackLivesMatter, gender...

If You Want Your Life to Make A Difference…

I

Over the past few years, as I’ve talked to hundreds of Christian teens, there’s one thing that I’ve learned. They want to follow God…but they’re not always sure what that looks like. They’re hungry for more…but don’t know where to find it. They long to make a difference with their lives…but staying motivated is hard. In short, they deeply need...

You Were Created For This Cultural Moment

Y

I’ve always wanted to time travel. In my opinion, there would be few things more awesome than going back in time and experiencing historical events first-hand. I’ve always been a history nerd, devouring biographies and historical fiction and daydreaming about days gone by. Life seemed simpler back then. Easier. Or at least not so confusing. When life gets crazy, I sometimes find myself longing to...

Announcing Our New Podcast!

A

Years ago, we had an idea. Maybe we should start a podcast.  A few ideas were tossed around, but eventually it was pushed to the back burner as we decided to focus on creating articles and books for our readers. Until now. After months of planning, recording, and praying, we are so excited to announce the launch of our brand new podcast Do Hard Things with The Rebelution! Here at The Rebelution...

3 Ways the Hope of Christmas Heals Our Present Grief

Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy. It’s what all the Hallmark movies tell us, with their over-the-top decorations and picture-perfect events. It’s what all the songs talk about (It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right?) It’s advertised on every commercial and ad: if we just buy this or do that or decorate just so, we’ll be happy and we’ll have the best Christmas ever. Yet rather...
