An elderly Christian YouTuber shared insights and deep reflections on his channel for the next generation before passing away.
Bernard Albertson joined YouTube in 2010. He was a man driven by his faith in God and love for the young people. Hence, his viral video on YouTube was his last piece of advice he wanted to pass along.
The old man passed away in October 2019 described himself as a “common man who loves God and has studied Scripture for most of his life.” He authored over ten books as well.

Bernard “had a hard start homeless living in an old car on the streets of California.” But he said, “through the power of the Lord he was saved and had a wonderful life.” He also added that although he lost a wife, daughter, mother, father, sister, and son in law, he persevered because of God’s help.
And while the Christian YouTuber is already in Heaven, his legacy remains. The advice in his viral video have gained more than four million views. It is a message that young people should hear!
Advice To The Young People From An Old Man
In the video, he shares, “as a young person, regardless of what’s happening in the world today, you have the opportunity. And don’t you believe for one single minute what they say in the media.” Instead “position yourself to learn” because “you are the backbone of this world.”
“Young people, without you, this world is nothing… You are the future leaders of this world. You are the ones that see the greed of the people that are running it now. You’re the ones that see the waste of the people that are running it now. We need you. We need your minds, hearts, lives, your love, we need you to care. And I know that you do.”
Bernard also addressed rebellion saying he understands them. But he said, “But that’s not you. Don’t let that be you. Rise above it. You’re better than that.”
Further, he advised, “You can’t stop, and you can’t quit. You can’t say ‘I’m a failure.’ You’re not a failure! You are a wonderful, strong, intelligent youngster. Take advantage of that. Trust in God and trust in yourself. Step forward. Put one foot forward in front of another.”
He ended by saying, “I’m 76 and until my last breath, I would encourage young people because I love them and I know they’re the future.”
“As old as I am, I would pick up my cane and defend you to my last breath because I love you. Just remember, never quit.”
