Give children a moral compass to live by [UPDATED]Published 9:47am Wednesday, January 9, 2013 Updated 11:52am Wednesday, January 9, 2013
Want to end the shootings, break-ins, and crimes of all types? You can play a role in reforming our culture.
Shooting, muggings, break-ins, robberies, marriage breakdown, suicides, abortions, violence, etc. are just symptoms of a much greater problem.
These symptoms clearly are a result of a move away from our Judea-Christian values.
Without a compass a ship will not stay on course. It will wander around the sea until it is destroyed by running ashore at a destination it didn’t even want to be at.
So it is with humans that have no moral compass. When we reject God’s programming for our moral compass (conscience), we will go astray from the course and destination our loving God has chartered out for us.
Without God’s programming in our moral compass, we will end up at a destination that we don’t want to be at.
The Bible tells us that a “great apostasy” will occur, like a great famine, when the people will reject his word.
Perhaps it is here now, because many people have programmed their moral consciences with the
teachings” of Hollywood, video games, music, secular teachings of rationalism, relativism and situation ethics, and other secular and cultural influences.
I encourage you parents to return to the Bible and teach your children Judeo-Christian values, to shape their moral compasses, before they set a course that causes them to run ashore in place they don’t want to be, a place you don’t want them to be at, a place of hurt, pain, sorrow, anger, hopelessness, restlessness and depression.
Don’t expect pastors, teachers or anyone else to do your job for you.
Take the bull by the horns and take charge over your children’s future, teach them values that will bless them and bless others.
