Inspired by "Lost Generation", we made this video to get people thinking about the world around us and how it relates to the promises of restoration, reconciliation and change found in the Bible. I hope you enjoy it!

The scriptures cited in the video are:
Micah 4:3
Revelation 21:4
Jeremiah 29:11
Isaiah 65:17-25

The title "A Chosen Generation" comes from 1 Peter 2:9:
"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy." (NKJV)

We based it on the "reverse thinking" forward/backward poem idea re-popularized on the internet by Lopez Murphy's 2006 Argentinian campaign advertisement "The Truth" ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFz5jb... ) and the short inspirational poem "Lost Generation" ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42E2fA... ) which Jonathan Reed created for the 2007 AARP U@50 video contest.

Thanks to Jeremy Lallier for writing this poem and recording the voice over. Click the 480p button to hear it in HQ stereo.

I agree with your concept. But I don't see how you can't distinguish the difference between, what is right illusion and or wrong. Through careful analyses any human being can know whats wrong or right unless there is a brain malfunction. If your a sociopath, it's not something that is complicated, there is morality and there is immorality. There's normal functioning people, and those who need help. So you have to take those scenarios into consideration in order to know your place.

I agree with you,you don't need God to be a good person.but if you try to live a good life without God then you may as well believe in Him,since you are living like there is a God.you saying it is alright to murder and rape?correct me if I am wrong there.if morality is something of opinion or society then good can become evil and evil can become good, just look at the nazi's killing millions of people they thought it was right and good,for me it is evil what the nazi's did.so they were confused.
Crucifucks brought me here.
