I wished I had a method to keep them all from doing the worldly thing...YET it gives me hope to remember God's Word on that..when they are old they will not depart from it.

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

This verse begs an interpretation. Is it: If we correctly carry out the first part of the verse, our children will not walk away from their faith? Or is it: If we do the first part of the verse, and 80% of them DO walk away, any surviving children will eventually wise up and come back?

I believe that it is the latter.

Here is a bit of "secular wisdom" that applies to the young folks in your second interpretation:

Some of us Learn from Other People's mistakes...

The rest of us ARE the Other People.

Given the coarsening culture, it appears that the second category will go way past the current 80%. I thank the Lord that my boys didn't fall away. And I will NOT let my grandkids do so.

I am blessed to have 2 wonderful Kids now 29 and 23.  Grand kids are now 5 2 and 5 months.  They are getting the same as we did our kids growing up.  

Yet I look around and there are a bunch of folks that did the same as we did and their kids would break hell wide open if the Lord came back right now.  Sadly I don't think there is much we can do  about the foolishness of youth.  Yet we can remain in Prayer and stand on God's Word that they most likely will come around.

Until He comes back I too will do my BEST with His help to try and steer these young people away from hells gates.

I will say that most colleges are so liberal I don't know if it's a good idea to send our youth there. I had a girl come over from Evangel University years back and what she offered was not in the Good book. My retired 2nd line boss is a graduate of Evangel Temple and she is the significant other to another she. Even when we send our kids to Christian College .... we can only hope for a Life Long Christian to Emerge.

It's in God's Hands. Stay prayed up and be active in doing the right things with HIS HELP.

Proverbs are general sayings not necessarily absolutes.

A Fox News affiliate is reporting that President Trump has repealed Obama's directive on transgendered persons in the military. Nice to have a Commander-in-Chief who listens to his generals and admirals, instead of forcing "social justice" on them.

Now if Mad Dog Mattis can get rid of the Pentagon civilians who gleefully pushed this, we can get on with protecting our country against "all enemies, foreign or domestic."

Spent a week in Seattle and saw all the damage done to people in the name of tolerance and other liberal claptrap. There's nothing unintentional about the poor results of liberal policies. I was reminded of how Satan is actually guiding the coarsening of the culture.

The percentage of our population that is anchored by a belief system is getting smaller each year. And because of that, I doubt we'll ever have another spiritual awakening or revival. People who enjoy their 100% secular lifestyle don't see any need for change. To begin with, so many never received the benefit of religious instruction, either inside the family or out.

How can you fight an endless series of "Just Do It" moments?

I don't know... Corinth was pretty "out there", and probably more than anything we have today. There's nothing new under the sun. God can draw the hearts.

Christians often try to do the heart changing. Stop inviting Jesus into your heart. He transforms hearts then inhabits them. We plant the seed but never commanded to change the soil types we plant seed into.

My city, which I affectionately call the "Berkeley of the Rockies", has done it again. We have a century-old memorial gifted to the city by the Daughters of the Confederacy. In the interest of public safety, the commissioners are now removing it.

Not so tongue-in-cheek, I wrote an editorial asking when they would remove the bars and Planned Parenthood, who contribute to the deaths of hundreds each year in our state.

If the paper decides to print my letter, it takes 1-2 weeks.

Ha! Ha! The leader of the Girl Scouts (down 26% in recent years) wrote a letter to the leader of the Boy Scouts (down 41% in recent years). She berated him for stealing her girls. Guess the BSA is working hard on the transgendered issue, trying to get their numbers up. Ain't tolerance grand?

Send her the sissy boys and leaders and break even.

Sounds a bit like what Forrest Gump would say, along with "Stupid is as stupid does."
