Abstract

Many of our young people in our present society are wallowing in a total ignorance or having half knowledge that is very dangerous. Consequently, instead of knowledge that is based on concrete evidence and in tandem with reality, many people are ignorantly basing  their knowledge on mere externalism and mere superstitious. It is on this backdrop that the researcher primarily intends to delve  into a way of resolving the tensions between  the demands of the Christian faith evident among the Igbo-African youths and some occurrences in life in relation with culture. The objective is to unravel the confusion, uncertainty and crisis that accompany such occurrences in relation to a Christian and an Igbo-African youth. To achieve the purpose, the researcher, therefore, employs the methodological approach of philosophical appraisal and expository analysis to accomplish the objectives of the study.

Keywords: Youths, modernity, occurrences of life, culture, Christian faith
