THE RATE OF MORAL DECADENCE

The rate of moral decadence among the youths is on the alarming rate.

There is a task before each and every one of us: The Society , church , parents and the youths and children.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT TRAINING CHILDREN

In the Bible book, of Psalm chapter 127 verse 

3  Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

 4  As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

 5  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. 

God gives us children and make us the primary care giver of these children.

He want us to have influence on them and train them in the way of the lord.

In the Bible, book of Ephesians chapter 6 verse

 4  And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

If our children will not be blown away by this moral decadence we have to train our children.

ACTIVITIES OF SATAN

Satan is on the rampage and devastating the life of our children through the social media and internet.

Unfortunately the Church and Parents are not moving in the same pace with the Internet.

In the Church level, children are neglected.

33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

The lord is calling us to wake up before Satan spoil the life of our children.

In psalm 127 God compared children to an arrow

If the children are arrows, then if we did not guide them well they will wreck havoc.

The Bible, book of Proverb chapter 29 verse 15  The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bring his mother to shame.

WE HAVE TO RISE UP

So, we must rise up as Church and as parents and train these children.

We should not live them to themselves or other corrupt peer groups to train.

When we leave our children Un attended to, when we did not give them the attention they need, invariably they become terror to us and the society and then we will start to reap the fruit of our negligence.

So if we don’t want to regret over them now is the time to wake up.

If your children are matured already don’t say it does not concern me make sure you participate in training the children of others.

If we fail to train them, when the problem comes all of us will reap the benefit of our negligence.

There are many of our children who some years ago are in the children Church taking very good role maybe playing flute, singing or participating in the choir but today have gone haywire.

Many of them now worth millions of Dollars leading as many youths astray due to their songs and activities, dressing and other ways of life.

without mentioning name you brows the internet to get enough information about them
They are undirected arrows.

SEXUAL ACTIVITIES

Gradually the world is getting sexualized how can we imagine that a child of six years will say that sex is every day affairs

Or how can you imaging an eight years old boy who have raped about four girls.

If you ask who are the victims he will mention her younger sister, a cousin and girls in his class.

In many schools the situation is very bad youths exchanging picture of private parts on the phone.

Now boys are raping boys.

Pornography is now on the increase.
many millions of websites that show Pornography.

Incest is now on the increase , gay , lesbianism , oral sex all in the increase.

People do no want to send their children to some universities because of the level of corruption and moral decadence in those schools.

Students have Bible verses they use as slangs when communicating on immorality
to the extent that if you are with them you will think that they are well versed in the word of God.

What of people getting married to their animals

Satan has gone mad we must not allow him to devastate the life of our children.

WE MUST NOT FOLD OUR ARMS

we must not allow the race and struggle to amass wealth stop us from taking proper care of our children

In United kingdom the Church many years ago neglected the children, they concentrate in building cathedrals

Today many of the churches are been used as mosque or cinema houses. Because the children are not in the church to replace the aging and those that have died.
