While modern society has always been hostile towards traditional family values – we’ve never seen anything like the current culture war of today.
In addition to appealing to the fleshly desires of adults, culture has now made children the target of their pro-LGBT and anti-Christian values – and you won’t believe the uphill battle children face.
But God’s Word sends a warning to those who lead little children astray, and God help the adults who ignore His message.
To start, children can’t step foot into school without being bombarded with the “transgender” agenda.
No longer can girls compete with other girls in female sports – boys can now play in girls’ sports too.
In fact, a little girl can’t even use the restroom without the fear of a boy in the stall next to her simply because he claims to be female.
And while adults used to be the ones protecting children from harm, now they’re throwing children directly under the bus just to push a political agenda.
Teachers are introducing children as young as 4-years-old to “transgender” books and teaching them that there are more than 100 different “genders.”
Even President Biden has come out in support of “transgenderism” in children.
Pastors around the country are taking note of what is happening and they are sounding the alarm.
Recently, Pastor John MacArthur preached a sermon warning parents about the looming crisis.
The Christian Post reported:
“It is likely that the child will be sent to a public school and come under the influence of those whose agenda is anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Scripture,” he said. “As you know, our country [and] the politicians who lead it are making laws that are devastating to children under the pressure of sexual freedom, homosexuality, transgenderism.
The desire is to make that normal and to punish people who speak against it with laws in the category of hate speech.”
It’s no wonder so many parents are choosing to homeschool their children or send them to a private school.
But sadly, it’s not just schools attacking our children.
Even some churches have started to push a pro-LGBT ideology.
But Scripture is clear about God’s love for children and warns those who lead them astray.
“And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
– Matthew 18:5-6
As parents, we are stewards of the children God has gifted us, and it is our responsibility to raise them to love and fear the Lord!
If parents depend on schools or culture to guide their children – only destruction will come.
When we stand before our Maker, we will have to answer to Him for how we cared for our children.
While it’s impossible to shield them from all the evil in this world, as parents we can raise them in a Biblical community and teach them at a young age who Jesus is.
Culture may have its heart set on destroying our children, but as Christians, we stand in the power of our Living King and we can overcome the darkness with His light.
