Royal Rangers in Charisma News

Post by ccm2361 on February 17th 2014, 5:22 pm

from the National website
Royal Rangers-Church based alternative to Boy Scouts

The comments attached to the article are more interesting than the article itself. the first dozen or so are all debating gay issue related to scouting but skip past those & you find some interesting ones..

like this one
As a 16 year Commander in the Royal Rangers, it WAS a good alternative to Scouting. I am also a former 25 year Scout Leader (that I quit this year) so I know what I am talking about. About five years ago RR watered down the program to make it acceptable to urban Churches. You can be in Rangers now and never camp! Sad. Teaching leadership is the main focus they say. the problem Rangers used to teach leadership by its activities in the great outdoors (with the boys having great fun!) and not in a Church basement doing boring book lessons. There is a better group, Trail Life. TL is a true Christian Scouting group and would be my suggestion as a better alternative to Boy Scouting, and even better than the new Royal Rangers. I think RR will turn around some day but until then Trail Life is the best option for a Christian Scouting group. For the girls try American Heritage Girls. (I was a leader in that too when my daughters were young!)

or this


If the Royal Rangers has been in existence since 1962, why did a rival organization called Trail Life USA start up in 2013? One would think having two religious-based alternatives competing for membership against the Boy Scouts (BSA) is counter-productive?

Of course, considering the BSA has 3.7 million members, the Royal Rangers (with 125,000 members) and Trail Life (1,000 members) probably have a long way to go to catch up.

Also wondering does the Royal Rangers have a female equivalent to the Girl Scouts (GSUSA) which has 3.1 million members?


Obviously this person is misinformed as Trail Life was started as a alternative to BSA not Rangers

Unbelievable, no one else has that opinion of Royal Rangers besides us kooky nutjobs from the forums...  Did you invite that guy to RC?  Prime candidate for RC!

We've talked about that before.

The only ones who cannot see what is lacking from the Emperor's Wardrobe all reside in the Castle.

(Quote) "I think RR will turn around some day..."

But will it turn around before reaching the washed out bridge? The warning signs are on the side of the road for anyone to read.

Joecool,

Recall Revelation says, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches". 


The key is being silent as Eccl 3:7 instructs and listening to the Spirit either directly or through the churches that run Royal Rangers.
