This headline, ‘If Your Kids Are Unhappy, Take Them To Church‘, was published by The Federalist, on Wednesday, December 28th., seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes going to church may damn you to Hell!
It seems like every time I turn around, an editor assigns me a story related to the mental health crises of our children. Most of the health experts I speak to correlate Covid lockdowns and our children’s fragile state. Closing schools played a major role in this phenomenon, but what if other crucial factors are being overlooked?
Another story, seemingly unrelated to the mental health crisis, is making the rounds in the corporate press. Church attendance is on a rapid decline. The “nones,” survey respondents who say they have no religious affiliation, are the fastest-growing group in the United States every year. We now have a generation of adults that grew up not attending worship services weekly, and they are raising their children in a similar fashion.
The “nones” seem to prefer a parenting style that says: “We’re fine without church and worship and religious instruction and institutions, thank you very much.” But they are not fine. Their children are not coping and managing the day-to-day stresses and inconveniences thrown at them. They are fragile and increasingly so.
Thomas Robb, the Pastor of the Christian Revival Center, and National Director of the Knights Party, both centrally located in Harrison, Arkansas, spoke from his church saying, “We shouldn’t wait until our children are ‘unhappy’ to take them to church. Why not take them before this, and maybe they’ll learn better coping skills from Scripture. There’s nothing that is going on in today’s world, that wasn’t already addressed in the Bible. When you buy a new car, it comes with an owner’s manual on what steps need to be taken to keep your car running smoothly. The Bible is our ‘life’ manual on how to keep our lives running smoothly and safe from sin. When you choose a church for yourself, or your children, be very careful what church you decide to attend. They’re not all the same, and they’re not all Christian either. Before you attend any church, speak with the Pastor, Father, whatever your denomination chooses to call it’s leader, and ask him or her, what their views are on homosexuality and miscegenation. Some will say they know in their hearts that homosexuality is a sin, yet they allow homosexuals to attend. Not many know that miscegenation is a sin, because they simply were never taught that. If you explain to him or her why race-mixing is a sin, and they don’t seem to ‘get’ it, stay away from that church. If they agree with you that homosexuality is a sin, ask them to do the next Sunday’s sermon as to why it’s a sin. If they refuse to do that, again, stay away from that church. Every White, Christian citizen in America should be attending church, but be sure it’s teaching the truth, because if it’s not, and you’re led astray, you will pay the price. You don’t want to be one of those that Jesus tells, ‘I never knew you’.”
