We must model what love and relationships looks like. The best way to expose a “false” marriage is to show children what a real, biblical marriage looks like. Once kids understand what a real marriage looks like they can more readliy see through an inappropriate relationship.
We must remember that we are in a race to capture the heart and mind of the next generation. George Barna said this so well.
In the race to a child’s heart the first one there wins.
The battle for the heart and soul of the next generation is happening earlier and earlier. I believe the battle is not just happening in middle and high school, but in elementary as well.
We are to speak the truth in love.
Speak the truth in love. (Ephesians 4:15)
Yes. It makes me upset that they are targeting children and trying to indoctrinate them with this secular world view. Seeing people trying to misguide children away from God’s plan for marriage and sexuality makes me grieve.
But I must not try to combat this with hurtful words, name calling or arguing. We are to speak the truth in love and then pray that the Holy Spirit will begin to do a work in their life. We must stand on the truth of God’s Word without shouting at people.
