Title
Disobedience, Rebellion and Defiance in the Believer as Exemplified in the Adolescent Stage of Life
Abstract

There are multiple causes of the variation of intensity of rebellion in adolescence. Included are the intra-psychic fantasies and defenses that distort and discolor the world to which the adolescent reacts. The processes of identification, projection, and introjection are explored as they relate to rebellion both in the adolescent and, in a more general context, to the believer in his relationship with God. The parent and the Christian leader need to respond to this rebellion by identifying with Christ so that the approach will not be one of domination and control, but one of understanding and forgiveness.
