Matthew 28:19 as a Baptismal Formula

Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: (Matt 28:19 ASV) The meaning of the Greek for “name” as found in the verse above can often simply mean he who is represented by that name, and this is probably the meaning here.

Bridging the Generation Gap Between Christian Teens and Parents

Most of us that have had teen children are aware of the generation gap that comes into play between teens and adults. We know about this because we experienced it in our own life when we were teens. The generation gap between teens and adults comprises a difference in values, behavior, socialization, relationships, communication, appearance, etc. Grunlan correctly notes that the teenage stage usually involves turmoil and problems between the teen and the parents (227).
