1 Answer to Creating a United Culture

Tue, May. 31, 2016 Posted: 08:06 PM

Today, there are as many parenting approaches as there are belief systems.

Parents are feeling hopeless and helpless. This is creating a culture that is divided.

Pop psychology has many approaches—influencing not just secular parenting experts, but Christian ones as well. Yet often times they contradict Scripture and its principles.

Psalm 86:11 says, “Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart that I may fear your Name.”

Do we as parents fear violating popular views more than God’s view?

Creating A United Culture

As you interact with other parents who have kids in the same age group as yours, discuss strategies that help both of your family’s kids build and promote a biblical worldview.

When our kids see other families living out the teachings of Christ it legitimizes what you teach and how you live in your home.

It’s easy for our kids to think that their family is the “odd family out”—especially when they’re the only ones refraining from certain carnal, or even sinful, activities.

Collaborating with other Christian parents gives you and your kids allies to help promote the legitimacy of your faith—while exhibiting a lifestyle congruent with the abundant life.
