There is an eagerness in the world to remake our children in its image.  But what’s behind its colorful message?  

As our family continues to travel and speak to parents, we are hearing a collective outcry of 'HELP!"

Our kids are being bombarded with very confusing ideas on a moment by moment basis and it is becoming increasingly challenging to keep them on track.

But I want to assure you that we serve a God who is still on His throne bringing us aid!

I love this blog post from a young blogger who seems to have a knack of hitting tough issues on the head.  He nailed this one:

Jesus didn’t care about being nice or tolerant

  It is so good and so provocative. I commend it to you and your family.

How about reading it at family dinner? Or maybe forward it to your kids and then plan a special time to talk about it.

It would also make great content for a youth meeting or Sunday school class. And while you’re at it, try it out with your adult friends. It is sure to start a much needed conversation.

I always wondered what it meant in the New Testament when people mentioned the idea of preaching a "false gospel." (Galatians 1:7-8)

Could this message Matt talks about be one of the false gospels of our age poised to destroy our kids’ faith????
