Overview

Suppose you could ask God any question and get an answer. What would it be? Young people all over the world have been asking those questions. So Neale Donald Walsch, author of the internationally bestselling Conversations with God series had another conversation. Conversations with God for Teens is a simple, clear, straight-to-the-point dialogue that answers teens questions about God, money, sex, love, and more.

Conversations with God for Teens reads like a rap session at a church youth group, where teenagers discuss everything they ever wanted to know about life but were too afraid to ask God. Walsch acts as the verbal conduit, showing teenagers how easy it is to converse with the divine. When Claudia, age 16, from Perth, Australia, asks, "Why can't I just have sex with everybody? What's the big deal?", the answer God offers her is: "Nothing you do will ever be okay with everybody. 'Everybody' is a large word. The real question is can you have sex and have it be okay with you?" There's no doubt that the casual question-and-answer format will help make God feel welcoming and accessible to teens.

Conversations with God for Teens is the perfect gift purchase for parents, grandparents, and anyone else who wants to provide accessible spiritual content for the teen(s) in their lives.

The Barnes & Noble Review
On the heels of his tremendous success with Conversations with God, author Neale Donald Walsch tackles teens with his latest inspirational book. Written in a conversational tone that makes it feel as if one is conversing directly with God, Conversations with God for Teens attempts to teach teens how to talk with God, how to take control of their lives, and how to find peace and understanding in the world around them. Walsch does this by answering some of the most difficult and challenging questions posed to him by teens from around the world.

The questions raised in the book touch on a variety of ticklish topics, such as sexuality (Why can't I just have sex with everybody?), divorce (Why can't my parents stay in love and stay married?), cruelty and inhumanity (Why do you let children get abused sexually and physically?), the generation gap (Why is there so much pressure -- from parents, from school, from everyone?), and death (Why can't we live forever?).

At the heart of Walsch's responses, gleaned from his own conversations with God, are the concepts of free will and self-empowerment. While some of Walsch's answers initially come across as trite or flippant, he eventually gets down to his real message. The God he portrays is a very benevolent and tolerant one -- there are no judgments passed here. But Walsch also challenges teens to work toward changing the status quo, pointing out how such change can be effected through one's behaviors, beliefs, and actions. Plus, he encourages responsibility and accountability, both in the way one thinks and in the actions one takes.

Walsch carefully avoids sounding preachy or advocating specific beliefs and religions. Instead, he calls for tolerance, open-mindedness, and a never-ending inquisitiveness while embracing one's current beliefs. His language is hip enough to appeal to the adolescent crowd, and a foreword by Alanis Morissette will likely heighten that appeal. And given the tough subject matter, the book can also serve as a valuable tool for parents struggling to engage in a dialogue with their teenage children. (Beth Amos)

CHAPTER 1

Finally, Answers


Suppose you could ask God any questions you wanted.

Questions like:

Why can't my parents stay in love and stay married?

Or ...

How do you decide who gets to be Alanis Morissette or Michael Jordan, and who gets to live regular lives? Or ...

Why can't I just have sex and have it be okay with everybody? What's the big deal?

And suppose you received responses to your questions.

Responses like:

"Your parents can stay in love and stay married, but it would require a shift in the things they believe for them to do so. You can also be very okay and live a happy life if your parents do not stay together, but that would require a shift in the things you believe.

"I do not decide who gets to be Alanis Morissette and who gets to live regular lives. You do. You are making those choices right now. The problem is, you don't know that you're doing it—or how.

"You can have as much sex as you want, every day of your life, and it will be very okay with everybody. But first you must understand what sex is—and that may not be what you think."

Would you want to hear more?

You're about to.


* * *

This book contains questions just like that, from teenagers all over the world. The responses you'll find here have been placed here for your consideration only. This book has not come here to give you "the answers." The last thing you need is someone else giving you "the answers." The hope is that this book will place you in touch with your own answers.

When you are in touch with your own answers, the hopelessness that you may sometimes feel inside can be ended.

This book is the result of a conversation with God. Okay, okay, so you don't even know if there is a God, much less whether we can have a conversation, right? Don't worry about that right now. If you don't believe in God, consider this book a work of fiction. I won't mind. It'll still be a good read. Maybe the best book you've ever read.

I do think that God exists, and I do believe that God communicates with us. I have conversations with God all the time. How these conversations take place will be explained in just a few pages. For now, please consider the possibility that this book was brought into your life to change your life if you choose for it to, and to change the life of the world around you if that is also what you desire.

And don't think for a minute that it came to you by accident. You called this book to you.

You called this book to you because you live in an insane world, and you want to change it. Somewhere inside, somewhere deep inside, you know how life could be. You know that we are not supposed to be hurting each other here. You know that no one has the right to seek it all, to take it all, to hoard it all, while others have so little.

You know that might is not right. You know that truth is what matters, and openness and transparency and fairness, not hidden agendas and under-the-table dealings and behind-the-scenes maneuverings and getting the advantage. You know that when you get the advantage at the expense of someone else being disadvantaged, there is no advantage in that at all.

You know this, and you know more.

You know that so much of the stuff they teach in school is pointless. Where are the classes in Sharing Power, Cooperative Living, Accepting Differences and Celebrating Diversity, Shameless Sexuality, Understanding Unconditional Love?

Where are the courses in Sustainable Living, Responsible Economics, and Collective Consciousness? Where are the courses that are relevant? Can't reading, writing, and arithmetic be taught through relevant courses, rather than instead of them?


* * *

Of course they can, and you know they can. You know this, and you know more.

You know that our political systems on this planet suck. They don't work. We can't even elect a president and have every vote count. We can't even find a way to have the election process work, much less the process of politics after the election.

You know this, and you know more.

You know that hypocrisy reigns supreme in the lives of too many people. Not all people, but too many people. They say one thing and do another. And they think you don't see it; they think you're not watching, or that you're not smart enough to know that what you're looking at, pure and simple, is hypocrisy.

You know this, and you know more.

You know what is rewarded in this society and what is not, and that in this we have it all backward. You know that we pay thirty million dollars for someone to play first base for the New York Yankees and thirty thousand dollars for someone to nurse our sick or teach our children or minister to our disheartened, and that this is crazy.

You know this, and you know more.

You know that you live in a society that keeps trying to use the energy that created a problem to solve the problem; that uses killing to stop people from killing, that uses violence to put an end to violence, that uses injustice in the name of justice, inequality in the name of equality, intolerance in the name of tolerance, wars in the name of peace, and insanity in the search for a sane tomorrow.

What is wrong with this picture? you ask, and you know what is wrong. You don't need anyone to tell you. You only want someone to do something about it. You only want someone to be able to do something about it. Because until now, it's all looked pretty hopeless.

And why has it looked so hopeless? Basically, because everyone's lying about it. No one wants to tell it like it really is.

Well, all that's going to change.

Right here.

Right now.

In this book.

CHAPTER 2

Truth Time

You tell the truth. That's what's cool about you.

I mean, you don't go around trying to kid yourself and trying to fool everybody else. You just are, and that's what it is, and if others don't like it, well, then that's what that is, and you're not going to change yourself because of something like that, right?

Okay, that means you're ready. Because people who tell the truth are usually ready to hear the truth. That's good, because we're going to do something really interesting here. We're going to have a conversation with God. But if you're not ready, it won't work.

Oh, the conversation part will work, because you can't stop that. All of us are having conversations with God, every minute of the day. What won't work is your ability to "get" it. You'll read it, but you won't get it. It's like a lot of things in life. You've got to be ready.

Right now most of the world is stuck. It's been stuck half a century. Fifty-year-old ideas, half-century-old ways of doing things—that's what you see out there right now, a lot.

They're not ready. The people who live and breathe these ideas, I mean. The people who swear by them. They're not ready. Not for change, and not for the answers that would create change. Not most of them, anyway. Most of them aren't ready. I think you are. So let me explain what's going on here.


* * *

I wrote a book called Conversations with God because I wanted to know why my life wasn't working, why it always seemed to have to be such a continuing struggle, what the rules were, and how I could "play" and not lose all the time. I also wanted to know the point of it all.

What resulted from that call for help was a dialogue with God that I had in my mind and placed on paper. Other people found value in it and it wound up being translated into twenty-seven languages.

My questions continued and more books followed. Then someone asked, "Why don't you do a book for teenagers?" And I said, "Because I wouldn't know what to ask about." And they replied, "Why not let them tell you?"

That's when I started asking teenagers, in person and through the Internet, If you could ask God any question, what would it be?


* * *

I received hundreds of replies. Here are some of them:

Why do You let children get abused sexually and physically? How come everyone wasn't born smart? Why is the world filled with hate?

What's the deal with the generation gap? Why can't parents just talk with us? And why is there so much pressure— from parents, from school, from everyone?

Is my life controlled by fate? Why are we taught facts, and not ideas, in school? Will I return to You, and will You be happy with me?

How come I have to pay adult ticket prices at the movies when I'm thirteen, but I can't see an "R" movie? That's stupid. Why do we have to have three hours of homework after seven hours of school?

I'm confused and scared about what to make of my newly found sexual identity. How can I present that to the people I love?

How come people make such dumb laws? If You made us, then who made You?

How is that a God of mercy can be such an isolationist and intolerant of other views? How can a God of infinite mercy condemn anyone for anything? Why condemn magic that heals? Why condemn for eternity those transgressions that are momentary?

Why is it that my parents notice only the things that I do wrong? How come adults want respect but don't give it back?

Why do people die? Why can't we live forever? What really is life after death?

Why is it that I can die for my country at eighteen, but I can't enjoy a cold beer on a hot day?

I feel as if I need to be successful—at everything. My parents seem to desperately want that. But what is "success"?

I don't know whether to hang with the popular "preppie" kids or the castoff "grungy" kids.

Why does everyone have to separate?

Why do my parents freak out about sex? My God, they freak out.


* * *

Now aren't those great questions? They'll all be addressed here, as will many others that were asked—questions about dealing with authority, about choosing the right career, about drugs, about marrying or living together, about how the experiences of lives are created, and even about what God looks like.

Let's get to one of those questions now, so you can see how it plays out, and then I want to explain to you how my method of "receiving" the responses works.

This question was given to me by a young woman named Varinia.


WHY DO YOU LET CHILDREN GET ABUSED SEXUALLY AND PHYSICALLY?

Varinia, my lovely, lovely friend, I know that you wish deeply in your soul that cruelty of all kinds could be eliminated from the Earth. So many people wish that, and so many are working for that.

There is so much sexual abuse in the world because there is so much sexual repression in the world. Humans have been taught from the time they were very young to be ashamed of their body parts and embarrassed or guilty about their sexuality. The result is that millions of people have sexual hang-ups you wouldn't believe.

Later in this conversation we'll talk about how you can help change all that, and how you can deal with whatever hang-ups the people around you may have. But you did not ask me why there was sexual and physical abuse in the world, you asked me why I allowed it— and I'm aware that that's an entirely different question.


YES, IT IS. SO WHY DO YOU ALLOW IT?


When I created life as you know it, I did so by simply separating myself into countless smaller parts of me. This is another way of saying that you were made "in the image and likeness of God."

Now because God is The Creator, that means that all of you are creators, too. You have free will, just as I have free will. If I had not given you free will, you could not create, but only react. If you could only do what I tell you to do, then you could not create, but only obey.

Obedience is not creation. It is an act of subservience, not an act of power. God is not subservient to anyone, and since you are a part of God, you are, by nature, not subservient to anyone, either.

That is why, when you are made to be subservient, you immediately revolt. It is against your very nature. It is a violation of Who You Are at the very core of your being.

Teenagers know this more than anyone.


BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE HUMAN BEINGS WHO HAVE DONE THINGS WITH THEIR FREE WILL THAT HAVE BEEN VERY HURTFUL TO OTHERS?

There have been many people like that, and it is true that I could have stopped this. I did not stop it because the Process of Life itself is the expression of free will. Anything less than that is not life, but death.

Even when the expression of free will does not serve the highest good, it must be allowed, or freedom itself is a mockery.

The word "freedom" and the word "God" are interchangeable. You cannot have one without the other. For God to exist, freedom must exist.

The beauty of freedom, however, is that it can be expressed by all beings, not just a few. This means that the people of the Earth are free to eliminate the experiences of sexual abuse and physical abuse from their collective experience forever.

They are also free to eliminate other conditions of cruelty and misery that they now endure.


HOW?

That is the question this book will answer.


* * *

Now that's the kind of dialogue you're going to find throughout the rest of this book. All of the "lead" questions—the questions that start off a portion of the dialogue—came from young people just like yourself. Some of the follow-up questions are questions that I asked, because I felt that those asking the first question would have asked the follow-ups if they had the chance.

To understand more fully how this "conversation" process works, it will help you to know that, as I've said, all of us are having conversations with God every day—and that includes you. You just may not have called them that.

God is talking to all of us, all the time. We are continually being communicated with by the universe. Life is constantly telling Life about Life. Life is always sending us messages.

True wisdom may be found in the chance utterance of a friend you meet on the street; in the lyrics to the next song you hear on the radio; the words that confront you, big as life, on the billboard around the next corner; the voice that you hear whispering inside your head—or this book ... that "just happened" to come into your hands.

Now substitute the word "God" for the words "true wisdom" in the above sentence, and you will understand how your conversation with God works. God has never, ever stopped inspiring the human race—and God inspires us by sending us messages—ideas, thoughts, song lyrics, words for a book ... you name it.


* * *

In my own life, God's conversations most often take the form of thoughts that fill my head, especially when I am asking for help with a serious question—and when I am willing to be quiet enough to hear the answer. God "speaks" to me in a voice that doesn't sound like anyone's voice in particular. It is what I have called a "voiceless voice," something like the voice of your own thoughts.

Now you might say, "Well, they are your own thoughts! What makes you think this is the voice of God?" That's a fair question. When I asked God that question, here's the answer that I heard:

Neale, if I was going to communicate with you, how else would I do it? Wouldn't "putting thoughts into your head" be one of the most effective ways?

When Thomas Aquinas had "thoughts in his head" about theology, wasn't he said to have been "inspired by God"?

When Amadeus Mozart had "thoughts in his head" about music, wasn't he said to have been" inspired by God"?

When Thomas Jefferson had "thoughts in his head" about freedom, wasn't he said to have been "inspired by God" to write a declaration about "one nation, under God"?

How do you think I communicate with people if it is not by putting "thoughts in their head"? Do you think that I show up at their doorstep in a long, white robe and hand them a scroll? Do you think that I appear in a cloud of mist over their bed and boom wisdoms into the air? Would that be more believable to you?

Is this how you have it? That the more unbelievable something is, the more believable it is?

I'll tell you this: I come to people in the way that is most believable. I do this for a very good reason. I want to be believed. Yet even then you do not believe me.

For most people, the most believable way for God to show up in their lives would be as an apparition, with me appearing in robes and handing over a tablet. I have done those things, yes. But do you think I am limited to those things?

More often—much more often—I come to people in a much more natural way, as a much more integral part of life Itself. This could be as a thought, as a feeling, or as an inspiration, just as I'm coming to you now through the feelings you are having and the words you are hearing and the paragraph that is coming to you in this way.


* * *

Those are the words that came, and that's how the process works.

Now it might sound good if I said that I ponder my questions for hours, meditating and praying and remaining in the stillness until I am brought to enlightenment and tremble with the energy of God flowing through my fingertips. But the truth is, I put down the first thing that comes to my head. There's no editing, no changing, no "toning down" or "fixing up." It's just a matter of "hearing" it and writing it down. It's just like taking dictation.

I've been doing this for ten years now, ever since the circumstances of my life caused me to reach out to God and beg for help. This latest book was written just for you, just for teenagers, not only because someone suggested it, but also because I've received hundreds of letters from teenagers all over the world telling me how impacted they were by the original Conversations with God books—and loaded with additional questions!

I've read all the reviews. Regarding both Good and Bad reviews, I think some people have a misunderstanding of the book. This book is not giving teens a go ahead to do anything. God made us like him. God is only Good only Life. He gave us free will and the choice to do what is pure and full of love. God didn't create religion. God didn't create the Bible. Man created those things. Yes, man is from God and God gave messages to St. Paul, and St. Mark - But he has a deeper message in the Bible. What makes you think that God could only talk to St. Paul? Why can't God talk to you. The Good news is HE CAN. WHY do you buy the newest Technology, A DVD Player, a Plasma TV - BECAUSE we has humans accept NEW in the Physical Form as the best or Progress.... Why is it that we don't except SPiritual Progress or New Messages from God. No, I'm not saying to Throw out Christianity - Keep your Christianity - But BUILD ON TO IT WITH NEW MESSAGES AND DEEPER MESSAGES - Don't read the Bible verbatim and interperet it just as it reads - why do you think there is so many stories in the bible that couldn't seem possible? Like Jonah and the Whale, or Daniel in the Lions Den - These stories are symbolic to a deeper message - St. Mark was written 700 yrs after Jesus died - Why can't GOD talk to you 2000 years after Jesus Died for our sins? The problem with our thousands of years of religion -is that we keep repeating the same mistakes. We are not progressing spiritually. The problem with all religions are the exclusions. Look around you. Compare the religions out there. They have all have the same deep message from GOD. THe problem is the way humans have interpreted GODS message. Yes I believe in Jesus. Christianity is my origin. It feels good and right for me to do the right thing; This is what feels right: Treat my body with respect and nuture my soul with messages from GOD - in all Forms - We are all created equal - no one is better than another - not a tree, not a dog, not the pope, not a rock - God is Light, we are light, our eyes are like a mirror and are ears are like a telephone receiver - we are in a dream created by many generations before us -- if you are hurt by your mother or father, don't blame them, they learned from someone before them and it goes on and on. WE NEED TO STOP THE CYCLE _ WE NEED TO LOVE one another - WITH NO EXCLUSIONS, NO EXCUSES - AND WE need to Love Especially OURSELVES -- You are no better because youre a CHRISTIAN - REad it in the bible - READ THe deeper message. Before you understand, you'll disrespect your self and others. Respect yourself, your body, your soul - don't put things into your body that will hurt you - like alcohol, drugs, overeating, these things cloud your spirituality, your soul and wear on your body- your body is a miracle - its of GOD - A man and woman were made for one another, for togetherness, life long companionship. Why have sex with someone that you won't be with for your life on earth? It only will hurt you emotionally and physically. And it is not necessary. Happiness does not come from being abusive to ourself and others - - I have learned that from experience. I have never been soo happy - I always do my best to speak with integrety, to never make assumptions and to not take anything personally. No one has to be right - How does it make you feel to condemn this book - don't you feel something wrong in your heart to condemn others? How do you feel to say that you can abuse your body by having homosexual intercourse because the book says anything that feels right is ok? LETS COME TOGETHER _ With all that is going on with Holy wars, and hate crimes, its time to open your eyes and be at peace - don't force your Christian, budhist, whatever religion you are on others - go past the man made religion and look to GOD in all religions there is only one GOD LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE --

This is a great book for teens struggling to find their way and who are wondering if God is there for them. It portrays God as I believe he is - non-judgemental, loving, wanting to reach out to these kids. It helps them feel they are not alone out there and they can turn to God. I think teens are old enough to recognize that these are not answers directly from God, but from people who believe in God and believe he loves all people.

Parents, if you love your children, and hope to see them grow into intelligent, independent-thinking adults with wisdom and compassion, encourage them to read this brilliant masterpiece. Thank you Neale for writing a book that makes sense, with no hypocrisy attached to it. Well worth the time and money, and not just for teens..... many adults could learn a lot from this book if they just allowed their minds and hearts to open. Teen years are not the easiest, and this book helps to get through some of those challenging times. Finally, a no-nonsense, truthful, insightful book.

I see so much hate and fear in most of the posts, that tells me that the majority of the people live in more fear than I¿m willing to accept in my life.. So it must be a good book. I love to be open minded and accepting, and yes, I do believe there is no right or wrong, good or bad, only love and fear, what brings you to your highest place of love (closest to God) or what destroys that, I don't believe Satin exists, only the opposite of God, which God is the one who has all power, so the opposite of that is the one who has NO power, F-E-A-R= False Evidence Appearing Real, Satin is false appearing real only to add fear to your life, and where there is fear, you cant have love, so where there is NO love, there is NO God because God Is Love¿So the ¿Satin¿, bad or fear is not in this book, only your reaction to it¿ So I will read this AND give it to my teen! Thanks for the Reviews¿. 'Religion is for people who don¿t want to go to hell, Spirituality is for people who have been there and don¿t want to go back'

U are wrong.not everything in the Christian life is black and white. There are plenty of gray foggy parts too. Like there is plenty of arguments about how u should dress what music should u listen to and what words are curse words crude words or ok words to say.There is great Liberty in the Christian life.And having things in black and white isnt so bad. It is so much easier to follow rules than to make some up.And i wasnt borne a Christian.No one is so technically i did give "it" a chance.Now its ur turn to give God a chance.For once in ur life just listen to Him WITHOUT inturupting

Stop saying that the only God you speak of comes from the Bible, stop thinking that there are sins, and seeing everything in black in white. Maybe.. just maybe... God might actually think of you as his equal and whenever you do something "wrong" that you should be bowing your head up to him... maybe you are an actual part of him come forth in physical bodies. So I do not judge this book, it is very helpful! LOL, maybe I'm "Satan".. lol.

If one were to simply take a step back and look at the big picture, he or she could obviously see that this world is NOT what we would like it to be. We bomb each other, kill each other, and hate each other all in the name of our God. Because we all believe 'our' god is the 'right' one. All this author is trying to open our minds to is the possibility that JUST MAYBE THERE IS ANOTHER WAY! Just maybe, the religionists have been trying to get it right for over 2000 years, and STILL have not figured it out! Take a look at every review for this book that gave it a bad score. They all have one thing in common...THE BIBLE. This book is no less opinionated or written by man than the Conversations with God are by Neale. Men received a message from 'a higher source' and wrote it down. Why do we find it so hard to conceive that GOD STILL SPEAKS TO HUMANS?! Lastly, a truth that cannot be ignored is presented in these books...WE ARE ALL ONE. That's all there is to it. Want to solve the world's ills? Begin to remember what you already know deep down...WE ARE ALL ONE. In Light & Love, John

Always wanted to get some answers from God? This is the book to have for teenagers point of view. Easy format for young adult to read.

Remember, God said "I am All that Is, Was and Shall Be. We are a Part of What Is, Was, and Shall Be, Therefore, by Logic, We Are ALL GOD. Love Yoursef in every manifestation of being. Remember, 'Thou shalt not judge'. I for one, try not to do so. I find it hardest to not judge myself, but know that I am not wise enough to judge others. The only way I have judged someone is by man's laws, with man made punishments. God is All Loving, so I do not fear, because I, like you, are loved by Him. I will remember again, and will bask as I do now, in his unjudgemental love.

I MUST give this book a poor rating because I could not even finish it. I honestly feel like I gave the book my all, but trying to read it reminded me why I gave up New Age beliefs in the first place. They just are not very steady. It's as if the beliefs change on a whim to fit the persons desire. And that is why I cannot trust the book... Because in all of life we are taught that not everything is and can be exactly how we want it so I am not going to trust a religion(or whatever this is) that seems to take a whole bunch of different cultural and religious beliefs and places them in a neat little package to fit the authors desire for how the world is. Now I am not completely doubting the author had some kind of encounter with God, but I am just saying that PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't waste your money on this book. At the very least rent if from the library. Or better yet instead of listening to this guy go on about who GOD is find out for yourself. Just skip the wasted hours reading and give talking to God a try on your own. Really I think borrowing a personal encounter with this author(and not a large conference room speech) you can never truly know if his experience was real or if he is just an excellent self help guru. Or possibly just a man out to make money.

Many teens who start thinking for themselves end up rejecting God altogether than accept the Hateful Tyranical Hypocrite they grew up with. Walsch paints a differnt picture of what God is REALLY like, weither you agree with him on every point. But for Walsch's God, that's o.k. He loves you anyway.

All I have to say about the man who wrote this book, "Conversations With God" is ANTICHRIST!!!!!!! Teens if you want answers to your deepest thoughts and questions go buy a Bible, ask Christ into your heart and live your life for HIM (Jesus Christ) only . DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't even read this book and I know that this book is produced from the depths of Hell. The real author behind this book is the devil himself! The only book I recommend is the book I Put in, Books I also Recommend. I don't also recommend. I Only Recommend The Holy Bible. The only book in the world That Has PURE Truth.
