Gone in Only One Generation: The Battle for Kids’ Minds

Over 3,000 people heard from Ken Ham this weekend at the Christian Heritage 9th Annual Conference, and now you too can be challenged through this powerful article by Ken Ham!

Every generation has the same decision to make: Will I serve the God of the Bible or a false god? The “god of this world” may shift his seductions slightly from generation to generation, but the basic challenge is always the same. So Christians must be ever vigilant. Every newborn must be taught the truth from scratch or else that soul could be completely lost. While statistics indicate that churches and Christian homes are failing to reach kids, God has given us all the resources we need to turn the tide!

How long does it take to lose a culture, from a Christian perspective?

Advice on Family Prayer

On April 16,1604, Matthew Henry preached an abundantly practical sermon to the families gathered in his congregation. One part of the sermon was for equipping them for prayer in their households. Here is what he said:

Five things especially you should have upon your heart in your family prayer, and should endeavor to bring something of each into every prayer with your families:

1. You ought to make family acknowledgements on your dependence upon God and his Providences as you are a family.

Give unto the Lord the Glory due unto his Name; give honor to God as the Founder of families by his ordinance, because it was not good for man to be alone; as the founder of your families by his Providence, for he it is that buildeth the house, and setteth the solitary in families. Give honor to him as the owner and ruler of families… (more…)

Homeschooling–Beware the Roaring Lion

by Ken Ham

The devil never sleeps but is always on the prowl, seeking another way to slip into Christian homes. Where might he strike next? You may not have to look any farther than the latest home-education materials.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

The majority of those who homeschool want to create a safe haven where they can train up their children with a Christian worldview founded in God’s Word. They believe they are training a new generation of “soldiers” for the spiritual warfare that is raging all around us.

But the homeschooling movement is under attack.

The devil, as a roaring lion, is seeking any way to wreak havoc in the home and devour our children. No place is safe, and it appears that he has found a way to infiltrate homes, where parents think they are strongest. (more…)

Webinar Recording: Raising Visionary Kids Who Engage the World for Christ, with Israel Wayne

Raising Visionary Kids - WayneHow do you teach children not to shy away from the giants of this world, but confront them fearlessly? How do you impart the tools of a culture-shaping Biblical worldview into the hands of your children, and also into their hearts? How do you disciple your toddlers and teenagers to become Christ-followers who engage the world for Him?

 

In this final broadcast of the spring series, Israel Wayne uses Scripture to get to the heart of the matter of raising visionary kids. He will challenge:

 

  • Kids to engage the world right now as part of their families.
  • Parents to set the example by engaging in Christ's battles themselves.
  • Everyone to remember this often overlooked truth: if you don't first engage the world for Christ side by side with your children, they will be ill-equipped to engage the world by themselves.

 

Are you engaging the world for Christ with your children?

They Can Do Nothing Without Jesus

Help Your Children Live Fruitful Lives

Like basketball’s Boston Celtics or football’s Pittsburgh Steelers, we homeschoolers are, so to speak, a dynasty. Competitively, we dominate. Every year, seemingly, homeschoolers take top honors at the National Spelling Bee, span the globe victoriously at the Geography Bee, and argue our way to statewide forensics titles. We populate the better side of standardized test bell curves. We outlearn, outserve, and outscore every other educational demographic. We needn’t be ashamed of these good things, but they are also dangerous, and we have no reason to be proud. (more…)
