Youth Ministry has changed drastically in the last 17 years since I first began working with students. Some of the changes have been in me, some of them have been in the context in which I am ministering, and some of them have been in the students themselves.
When I started all those years ago students had the ability to assess arguments on a basic level. They intuitively understood that truth is not relative in nature and that in order for something to be true it must correspond to reality. Today, students are very different.
