The Bible teaches that man is made in the image and likeness of God. But when we look at humanity as a whole, and humans being as individuals, what we see is a portrait of something that bears little or no resemblance to the virtuous standard of a holy and righteous Creator. The Bible teaches that an unregenerated human being is vile, corrupt, and wicked. As a whole they generally wish to have nothing to do with God, and will oppose him and resist him; calling evil, good, and good, evil. In fact, most people hate their Maker, have no inerest in His teachings, or merely make a pretense of obeying His Commandments. Is this the image of God that the Bible is referring to?
Jesus said in Matthew 19:14: “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for such is the kingdom of heaven.” And in Matthew 18:6 he stated: “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. … But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
What has corrupt man to do with God? We can know the spiritual health of an individual by how they treat little children. Have you ever seen a child being abused in public? Today, it is a common occurrence. But the question I must ask you is, “Did you do anything to stop or prevent it?” If not, be assured that you are a coward and a liar and the truth is not in you. I know that for a fact because the Bible tells me it is true.
A child today has a bleak future ahead of him or her. In America, and elsewhere in the world, but especially in America, children have been taught to disregard God, and have been instructed – rigorously – in the doctrines of immorality, hatred of the truth, and ignorance of the precepts taught by Jesus Christ. They have received no instruction in righteousness. They have been told that evil is good, and good is evil. They have been indoctrinated with so many lies that they cannot fathom the truth of a matter, and certainly do not have any understanding of their reason or purpose for being. They don’t know what is right and what is wrong. A decadent culture has broken their moral compass.
Today, spiritually ignorant and wicked people, with an agenda to serve and promote falsehoods, are instructiing your children – in the government run schools, in the culture, in society at large. Five year olds are told that it is OK to be gay; and that it is a good thing to do evil; no absolute truth, no judgment, no God. As a consequence, we now have a world of toddler misfits and teen Schitzophrenics that believe anything that denegrates the truth of God. We have little children that have never heard of Jesus Christ, except in a derisive context. They have never heard the truth read to them – the Bible – and they have never been allowed to so much as even inquire about it, lest they suffer ridicule. Today, we live in a satanic world culture, and the United States is leading the way, exporting more pornography than all the other countries combined. Children are murdering their parents; parents are raping their children, teenage girls are pregnant, and some as early as age 6; their unwanted aborted babies shipped though abortion mills and used for medical fetal cultures.
Today, the children – once the image and likeness of God – are becoming more and more like their God-hating parents: Mother and Father made in the image of Satan.
But what are the rightous to do? First, make sure that you are not part of the problem. Wash your filthy hands of doing wicked deeds or supporting it by your silence. Seek the face of the One who created you, and repent by stop doing evil. When your works match your virtuous words, only then will you be fit for service in the kingdom of God. He will let you know when you’re ready. Until then, you must first be born again, or you will not be able to see the Kingdom of God. Read His 1611 King James Bible. That’s how you become indwelled by His Holy Spirit of Truth. Listen to men who preach that unaltered gospel. Hearing those words will transform you into a new creature.
Humble yourself as a child… THEN teach your children the Truth.
