Train up a child while becoming a godly parent. They need our prayers.
The Antichrists are among us today. Yes I said the antichrists are among us today. 1 John 2:18 says, Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. 1 John 2 warns us of the false teachers. Those whose only desire is to confuse, distract, and destroy us. These antichrists want to destroy our children. 1 John 2: 22 - 27 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also. 24 Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you too will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he made to us — eternal life. 26 I write these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you. 27 But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, abide in him.
The bible teaches us that those who do not belong to the Father because they deny Christ Jesus the Son are liars. The truth is not in them. So they are not led by the Holy Spirit. If they are not led by the Holy Spirit then what ever they teach comes from darkness. It may be that they themselves have been deceived and are deceivers unknowingly or they delight in deception and leading others astray. They can't be without the Holy Spirit and lead in truth. They may not outright lie however their truth is fractured and shallow and used to manipulate somewhat like Satan did in the garden of eden.
When it comes to our children we have to be preparing them for the onslaught of attacks on their Christian faith. Yes the antichrists are here and they have access to our most precious and vulnerable responsibilities, our children.
Who are these antichrists among us today? I read a frightening article by Frank Turek the other day that caused me to cry out to God. Some of these antichrists are teaching our children in institutions of higher education. Yes College professors. In the article it says, Some professors make no effort to hide this. Professor Richard Rorty, who taught at Wellesley, Princeton, the University of Virginia and Stanford, admitted that he and many of his colleagues are actively trying to destroy the faith of Christian kids in college. He warned parents to recognize that as professors “we are going to go right on trying to discredit you in the eyes of your children, trying to strip your fundamentalist religious community of dignity, trying to make your views seem silly rather than discussable.” He said that we professors “arrange things so that students who enter as bigoted, homophobic religious fundamentalists will leave college with views more like our own.” Rorty followed that wake-up call to parents with an overt poke in the eye. He claimed that students are fortunate to find themselves under the control “of people like me, and to have escaped the grip of their frightening, vicious, dangerous parents.”
A recent survey shows that professors are five times more likely to be atheists than the general public. It also found that 53% of college professors view Evangelical students unfavorably. In fact, Evangelicals are, by far, the most disliked religious group on campus (Muslims were not liked by 22% which means that in the United States of America, professors are two and half times more likely to dislike an Evangelical student than a Musllim student).
No wonder 75% of Christian kids leave the church in College. It’s anything but a religiously-neutral environment. Equip yourself or your child before attending.
Not all College Professors are anti - Jesus Christ. Glory to God. But most of us know students who have testified to the presence of these misleading professors. Press on parents. Keep praying over and for your children. God has a plan for them.
1 John 4:4 says You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
