Dear Christian Parents:

Posted by mercycounseling on November 4, 2019 at 8:10 AM


Do you love Jesus? Do you teach your children to love Jesus?

I’ve heard it said that we are always just one generation away from Christianity disappearing from the earth. Thank God that can never be true! The Lord has promised the “the gates of hell” will never prevail against the church (Matthew 16:18.

Even so, many Christian parents are failing the Lord, the church, and their children in the matter of Christian child-rearing. They seem to have an attitude (and many say) that there is no need to bring up their children in the church; they think it’s ok to say that the child can decide later. So they don’t prioritize assembling with other believers and teaching their children Bible stories. They don’t pray with their children or spouse. How then, will their children develop a saving faith? This attitude specifically violates a powerful exhortation to “train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it,” (Proverbs 22:6).

Like it or not, children learn to value (or not value) what their parents demonstrate as valuable. This includes not just Christian education, but also parental authority. It’s shocking to me how many parents let the kids run the household, most specifically regarding whether the family attends church. A child indulged in this way is on the road to hell and it is the parents’ fault.

Dear Christian parents: you have a God-ordained responsibility to raise your children to love Jesus and to love His bride, the church. Please make it a priority.

Dr. Susan Haberkorn is an Ordained Minister of Pastoral Care and NCCA Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor.

I would like to get across my appreciation for your kindness in support of those individuals that require help with that subject matter. Your very own dedication to getting the solution up and down had become really helpful and have frequently encouraged ladies much like me to reach their objectives. Your warm and friendly hints and tips means so much to me and extremely more to my office workers. Many thanks; from all of us.

I have to express some appreciation to you for rescuing me from this particular dilemma. Right after scouting throughout the the net and seeing proposals which are not beneficial, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Being alive minus the solutions to the problems you've sorted out as a result of your main guideline is a critical case, and the ones that would have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn't discovered the website. Your main know-how and kindness in controlling every part was excellent. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a thing like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this impressive and amazing guide. I won't think twice to recommend your web site to anybody who desires guide about this topic.
