This paper discusses a number of factors that hamper moral development and which indicates that purposeful and well-planned attention must be paid to the moral development of the youth. The church, especially, has an important responsibility and a great opportunity in this respect. The role of the church is, primarily, not what it does for the youth, but what it should be for the youth, namely a true community of faith. Through identification with the congregation, identification with the congregation's values and norms takes place. Moral consultation and decision-making should function within such a context. Moral development takes place within the dialectic relationship of initiation and communication of values and norms.
