schools donít care about your childrenís spiritual
wellbeing. They only care about seeing that they are educated well
enough to keep the economy rolling and to be sure to continue voting
them (the government) into power.
Most parents today, make
education and a getting a good job the number one priority for their
children. Then when their children are grown they wonder
why their kids never joined the church or didn't remain faithful to
Parents, we make a
mistake when we make a good school and good paying job our
childrenís #1 priority. We may take our children to church but what
are a few hours one day a week compared to 40 hours of public
education and 40 hours of watching television? If the average
Christian attends church for 2 hours then his ratio of
worldly to spiritual influence is 40:1. No wonder we have a
problem! The government schools, T.V., movies, secular friends,
adds and commercials and
sometimes even church friends are all working to indoctrinate our
children with the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh and the
pride of life.
With only a couple of hours in church each week wining against those odds
is nearly impossible. If we donít take back our childrenís
time from the influence of the world, then we can
count on the continued loss of our posterity to wordly churches and
the ways of the world.
We must counter
indoctrinate our children. If you donít brainwash your kids donít
worry, someone else will.
scripture says we are supposed to be in the world not of the world.
What is to be
done about it? Bringing children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord,
means more than just going to church on Sundays.
It means time
spent in family devotions it means separation from the world.
The Christian family who desires to
live a separate life needs to consider home schooling.
