How should Christian parents raise their children to face a secular world?

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

We live in an ever increasingly secular world, one where war has been waged against God. A world where wicked anti-God groups like the ACLU sue anyone or anything that is Christ related or provokes thought about God. Our society we live in now promotes false religions like Islam, Mormonism, and new age beliefs. But while society promotes these false religions, it is more and more frowning on Christianity.

But when I say society, I mean a few bad apples that are in charge of certain things, and some in positions of authority. Most of the good citizens in America believe in God and want to live a life for him. But with liberal federal judges making rulings against Christianity and liberal law makers passing laws against Christianity. It's an up hill battle all the time for the blood bought saints.

So as a Christian parent how do you raise your children to deal with this environment? First off, like Proverbs 22:6 says we should train up our children in the right way to go. And we must train them starting from a very young age, all the way up to adulthood. As parents it's understandable to want to shelter and shield your children from all the evils of the world. And you should to a degree. But you must train your children about what's out there. What they will see. And how they should react to it.

Teach your children to pray all the time, before bed, saying grace before meals etc. And to pray any time they feel the need to talk with God. Public schools these days are very secularized, I would advise people to home-school their children if that's at all possible. Public schools are promoting and teaching that it's ok to be gay, that the gay lifestyle is normal. It is not and as parents it's our job to step in and take control of our kids education. I teach my kids that yes some people live that way, but that it's unnatural and that God is very disappointed in people who live that kind of life.

If you teach a kid about perverse ways of life from a young age, (Train a child up in the way he should go) You won't have to worry about them becoming confused or lost on the topic.

Below is a very informative video by speaker, Ken Ham...

Another important issue that parents need to take charge of with their kids is the made up lie: Evolution. Public schools teach the evolution lie. It's completely imagined. The whole idea of millions of years is completely false. If you as a parent are not up to date on the evolution lie. You can learn more about it at: WWW.ANSWERSINGENESIS.ORG

Answers In Genesis offers some very good educational video's on Creation by God that you can add to a good Christian based home school. Teach your children about Gods laws and that we must live by them. Because isn't the most important thing we can do for our children is ensure their salvation?
