A GENERATION OF UNBELIEF
There is a generation that has grown up without understanding basic Bible principles. Many think that there may be some relevance in the Bible, but many do not take the word literally. Some think the stories of David and Goliath and Daniel and the lion’s den are just that—stories.
Many think that there is more than one source for truth. How did this happen? Was there a deliberate attempt to eliminate truth from the younger generation? I would have to answer that with a yes.
Many public schools use government approved textbooks that use situational ethics to illustrate moral decisions. The textbooks are full of humanism, putting self on the throne. They have eliminated God from the equation in science, math, history, and every other subject. Teachers many times have gone to liberal colleges where they are taught that we descended from apes, and “evolved” into what we are today. That ideology is propagated in the classroom.
There are no absolutes. How did this affect the younger generations? It convinced them that God is not necessary to have a fulfilled life and that the Bible is an old book full of fables. This philosophy has come into textbooks, teachings, and every other aspect of our younger generation. With no absolutes there is no way to determine right from wrong.
How can this be changed? It can only be changed through parents devoted to God and being sold out to the Bible as the foundation to live by. It must be taught from the cradle that everything from Genesis to Revelation is relevant. It must be taught that sin started in the garden by one man being disobedient and ended on a cross where one man paid the price for sin.
It is evident when we see what is happening on the streets throughout the world with chaos, rioting, fires, murders, and destruction that there are no absolutes other than “self” with this crowd of young people. They have made heroes out of those that support “Black Lives Matter” yet insist that the life in the womb doesn’t matter. They have spread their hatred and have made those with Godly principles look like the bad guys. If there are no absolutes my friends, then there is chaos. Even in sports there is a rule book, and there is also a rule book with the things of God. Unlike sports rules, God’s rules never change. Have you studied the rule book of God? Have you taught it to your children? There is no hope for the future without God’s Word changing lives. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God, and without faith it is impossible to please God. The Bible must be our foundation to live by. There is no other foundation that will stand. Germany banned Bibles and look what happened. In a few short years it became a fascist dictatorial country that tried to control the world with their ungodly precepts.
Keep God’s word alive. Let it start with us! Read it to be blessed and do what it says to be a blessing!
