Adult Examples

Why complain about the violence, idolatry, and immorality among children and youth today when they are simply following adult examples.

Children do not produce, promote, and sell pornography; adults do.  Children do not make guns, nor do they automatically know how to use guns to shoot innocent people.  Children do not design, produce, market, and sell violent video games.  Children do not produce, nor are they born knowing how to abuse and sell illegal drugs.  Children are not born rude nor are they born ignoring adults to play video games and spend hours watching television and using electronic devices.  They get it from us, the adults.
Children having sex before marriage and living together as married before marriage came from adults.
Children and youth pursuing same sex relationships is not an inborn trait (not one legitimate study proves that we are born into homosexuality or lesbianism).  Aduts are promoting and pushing hard to legalize what God says in both testaments is wrong.  Rest assured that God also says that He loves all of us such that He sent Jesus to die for us to make us right and help us live right before Him (John 3:16; I Cor. 6:9-11). By the way on this issue, Christians must show love and patiently minister to homosexuals and lesbians just like we do with anyone else.

My main point today is what we see in children and youth today is passed on to them by us, the adults, the older people.

God speaks to how to change this issue in Titus 3:2-8.  Adults, we are to live right before our young people and teach them what is right based on our godly example.  Our words alone are not enough.  Our right words, plus our right actions influence children and youth to change and do the right things.

God Bless,
