"Train up a child in the way she/he should go;
and when she/he is old, she/he
will not depart from it."
"And God saw that it was good."
"All things bright and beautiful...The Lord God made them all...How great is God Almighty, Who has made all things well."
"Let Us make people in Our image...Let them have dominion over all the earth and over all..."
God knows children need stability, security, and identity.
Therefore, baptismal promises.
His plan to provide for their needs.
He entrusts them to us.
"In presenting your child for baptism, do you confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior; and do you promise, in dependence on the grace of God, to bring up your child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?"
Children are baptized or marked off for God because they belong to God whether they know it or not as parents join other adults in the greater family of faith uncommonly called the Church in agreeing to provide examples, education, and environments of loving Jesus by loving like Jesus with the prayer/hope that the child will eventually confirm the truth of belonging to God through Jesus as enabled by the Holy Spirit.
Some churches "dedicate" babies which is kinda like the same thing by definition.
The promises matter very, very, very much.
Maybe that's why some adults don't baptize or dedicate or...
Some adults seem to forget or ignore or defy the call/responsibility of dominion's/stewardship's promises.
Report cards don't lie.
Have you listened to children talking in the cafeteria, classroom, bleachers, mall, and...?
Who showed/taught them to talk like that?
What's up with all of their barking, biting, bullying, bruising, beating, and...bullets?
Who showed/taught them to do that?
Why are they so selfish, separating, segregating, distancing, divorcing, destroying, and my-way-or-the-highway-if-I-don't-get-my-way-I'll-pick-up-my-marbles-and-quit members of churches, clubs, and...?
Who showed/taught them to behave so badly?
Are we that...?
The solution is simple.
Replace the commandments taken down.
Return to the prayer and pledge.
He honors people who honor Him.
People who abandon Him are...
Report cards don't lie.
It's not about more guns or less guns or more taxes or less taxes or bigger schools or smaller schools or...
It's about God's place in their lives.
Who removed Him from their lives?
Are we that...?
"I'm just a reflection of you!"
"Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them...Whoever causes
one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a
millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of..."
Blessings and Love!
Weeelllllllllllll, it might just be time for government controlled public schools to die. This country might well benefit from education in the hands of a private sector where competition, excellence, and performance mattered more than lowering the bar so that none are left behind, and curricula and texts are rewritten so that all are misled.
I'm just saying...
While I wasn't thinking about that, brother, it does cause me to stop in my, uh, whatevers. Maybe, like mainline denominations, public schools have outlived their... I don't know. I just know that all of the efforts to remove God from the curriculum has contributed so demonically to what's going down... Frankly, I'm surprised that so many school leaders and parents have caved to the world spirit of the age at the expense of Godliness for our children... I guess those baptismal/dedication promises are just for show... Regardless, I don't have the answer; except for bringing Him back into the classroom, courtroom, marketplace, and... All I know is what we're doing now ain't working anymore. Dang, you're making me think! Dankeroo!
Excellent and oh how we need families and good schools who teach in love and discipline with purpose and grace.
