Raising Awareness

So, I've tried to stay away from writing about politics in my blog, but today I read an article that has disgusted me enough to get active in raising awareness on what is going on in the country. Thank you to Julie for posting this on her blog and asking for prayer because it opened my eyes to what is happening in our schools. I know that times aren't necessarily going to get any easier, but as Christians we can get on our knees and pray for the leadership in this country and for our youth!

Click here to read about birth control in a Maine middle school.

It's frightening for me to think that this is where the world is headed. What a challenge we have laid out in front of us to raise our children for the Lord in a world falling deeper and deeper into sin.

I agree with you, Amy! We MUST pray for our youth and our leadership! There is no other recourse! It's scary to me to think of my precious babies being taught this stuff. Sickens me and it frightens me and it should. Thank you for posting on this!:o)

Blessings,
Julie

sooooo true!! That is why it is so important that our children learn what holiness is by our examples in our homes, and by what we teach them! What I find sad is that in many Christian homes we get all upset by what they are being taught in the school system, and then we turn on the TV and watch shows that promote sinful lifestyles! Seems quite hypocritical to me! Being in church on Sunday isn't enough. If it isn't modeled and taught in the home, kids won't get it! nine out of ten college student that we know, at the christian college we are at, name as their favorite shows "friends" "greys anatomy" etc. All shows that promote lifestyles that are sinful and Godless! I often wonder if these kids are being challenged at home, or in their churches, because they don't seem to be too ashamed to say that it is what they watch, and they all congregate to watch it. It is grievous!!! And, one of the reasons I started my blog was because I am soooo burdened by what I see!
