TCW Minute: Raising Godly Children (Week of June 18, 2018)

2018-06-22T13:14:45+00:00 Jun 18, 2018|

Raising children who love and obey God.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

With the abundance of child-rearing resources, it may seem surprising that the New Testament has only one verse that directly addresses the issue.

Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

“Don’t provoke” means don’t be overbearing.  “Bring them up” implies a daily, ongoing endeavor.  “Discipline” […]

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.  Ephesians 6:4

Christians spend a lot of time working toward political change, whether through issue advocacy or electing certain candidates.

TCW Minute: The Biggest Challenge (Week of Feb. 12, 2018)

2018-02-16T15:24:02+00:00 Feb 12, 2018|

What is the biggest challenge? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

It’s Christians parents raising children who love God as adults. Consider how the sons of Eli, Israel’s high priest, turned out. Or you may know or have an adult child who was raised in a Christian home, but now has little to no interest in the things of God.

What to do? Christian parents must authentically follow Christ themselves and intentionally cultivate […]

Now the sons of Eli were worthless men; they did not know the Lord. 1 Samuel 2:12

It is a repeating pattern throughout history—God-fearing parents raising children who turn out not to be God-fearing as adults. Consider the ungodliness of the sons of Israel’s high priest, Eli (1 Samuel 2:12) or King David’s son, Absalom. Perhaps you know or have personally experienced […]

Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all. –Jesus (Mark 10:14-15)

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.  Deuteronomy 6:6-7

What are “these words” that are to be on our hearts and taught […]
