Texting and teens seems to be an inseparable pairing. Working with teens can be fun and also frustrating — especially when slang seems to be their primary language among one another. Their desire for independence has them trying to exclude parents, teachers, and those who are helping shape their lives and encourage them to make wise choices. Their texting slang has a meaning all its own.
We all would agree our teens face enormous challenges and distractions — but working alongside parents, church youth leaders, and those dedicated to youth helps make the journey easier. Axis is an organization helping adults connect better with the kids in their world.
Much of the teen slang is an innocent way to text quickly and impart messages that are quickly understood. But Axis also shares some Red Flag slang that adults need to be more wary:
1. Addy: Which is short for Adderall — the medication used to treat ADHD
2. Catfish: Someone pretending to be someone they’re not on social media, either for dating or sexual purposes.
3. D: Short for d*** She just wants the D
4. DTF: Down to F***
5. FWB: Friends with benefits

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
