GREEN PINES, NV - Local teenager Bradley Randolph rededicated his life to Christ at Green Pines Christian Camp last Friday afternoon, fully surrendering himself and giving his heart and mind over to Jesus for a full two weeks, sources present at the camp's closing bonfire ceremony confirmed.
After a week of watching funny skits, singing catchy CCM songs, and playing fun camp games, campers at Green Pines are encouraged to dedicate or rededicate their lives to Jesus for any period of time between one and five weeks, depending on their level of devotion to the Lord, according to camp officials.
"I now surrender my life to Jesus, committing fully to walk with Him and look really, super-spiritual for the exact length of time it takes my emotional high to wear off," Randolph prayed sincerely with a camp counselor. "It is now my desire to annoy all my family members with my newfound sense of smug self-righteousness for approximately 14 days, at which time I will return to my old ways of life without any undue fanfare."
"In Jesus's name, amen," he concluded, before joining the rest of the camp in an emotional rendition of "Create In Me A Clean Heart" around the camp bonfire.
At publishing time, sources close to Randolph had confirmed he had also thrown a sin-rock into the flames, but later retrieved it and stowed the symbolic stone in the bottom of his duffel bag in case he wanted to begin his sinful habits again "a few weeks down the road."
