What would you do if you discovered that your neighborhood was full of child abusers?
Well, it’s no doubt that as parents we would do everything we can to stand strong to stop the abuse, to teach our kids to fight back against it, and get as far away from it as possible.
Let’s also remember that abuse comes in many forms. There’s sexual abuse, physical abuse, and emotional abuse. But what about this: secularism, depravity, immorality, and apathy? These are all around us. Moral relativism says it’s ok. Just because it isn’t right for you doesn’t mean it’s wrong for someone else. Christians who say otherwise are hit with a borage of hate and intolerance.
Unfortunately, we the parents have, in many ways, taken the guard rails down rather than standing strong and teaching our kids to do likewise. Is it any wonder then that so many kids lose their faith by the time they are in college? We are the closest representative to Christ that our kids have, after all. If we don’t stand strong, how can they?
Discussing Standing Strong with Ken Ham
Ken Ham is the CEO and Founder of Answers in Genesis and the High-tech Creation Center and Museum located in the Cincinnati, Ohio area, and the visionary behind “Ark Encounter” located in Kentucky.
Ken is a biblical apologist and his work addresses such topics as the reliability of the Bible, how compromise over biblical authority undermines society.
He’s the author of a number of books including Already Gone, The Lie Evolution, and Gospel Reset. Most recently he wrote the book Will They Stand, and it addresses today’s topic head-on. Will our children be equipped to stand strong against cultural giants that previous generations never imagined, or will our kids be overcome.
