Supreme God is faithful to all generations and makes Himself tangibly known to each generation. Each generation builds on the foundation laid by former generations. The Holy Bible is the foundation builder for each generation to pass on all to upcoming generations.  Each generation forms their own culture.  Each generation is convinced that they can do better and can outdo the preceding generations, all to no avail.  The human heart is desperately wicked. Who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9-10.

Only by the firm foundation of God’s Word as found in The Holy Bible can each generation fulfill their God-given assignment. Holy God’s Purpose for each generation is to establish His Kingdom of Righteousness on earth so redeemed people live in Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in The Holy Spirit, which is the Kingdom of God. The Word of God never fails or changes. What Holy God speaks is for all generations and stands throughout Eternity.

 “One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your Mighty acts.” Psalm 145:4. Let each generation bring praises to Holy God and in so doing, allow His Truth to encompass all generations. 

Parents are to educate their children.

God Almighty says in Deuteronomy 6:4-9: Hear The Lord your God! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lied down and when you rose up.   You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and wear them as reminder between your eyes (memorize them in your mind so you don’t forget what The Lord Your God speaks).  You shall writ them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and he will never depart from it.”

Fundamental to all ministry to children and youth is that God’s normal way of shaping children into radically dedicated, risk-taking, countercultural, wise, reflective, caring, responsible True God followers is through the model and example of their parents, who teach and model before their children a God-centered, Bible-saturated worldview.

The Bible says that fathers are the primary teachers and shapers of the mind and heart of their children. Ephesians 6:4 – “Fathers do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from The Lord.”

Fathers do not to give up your God-appointed position God endowed in you to teach and train your children He has entrusted to your care. Each child is a gift from God to be encouraged and trained in Godliness so that they bring Joy and Pleasure to their Heavenly Father as well as to their earthly father.

Belief systems influence how the generations are trained in Godliness.

The Church can partner and complement parents in the Biblical and world-view education of their children. However, the Church is not to usurp parental authority in raising their children to be God followers of Jesus Christ as determined in The Word of God.

Parents are the primary influence on their children; and God holds parents accountable before Him when they give an account to Him as to how they trained their children. If parents do not train their children in Gods Ways, then much of what the Church says is dismissed by the children.? If the God-Created vacuum in children is not filled with God’s infallible Word; then the evil that is continuously fed to them through the Internet, social media, as well as, through the vain philosophies of the world system will wrongly influence them and take them away from True God Who Loves them and has a GOOD Plan for their lives. Children and adults become what they continuously inhale that is either Truth or lies, or even more deadly, deception: truth mixed with lies that seem right. God’s Word reveals and exposes deception.

The Church can helpfully aid parents, who may not have Biblical upbringing themselves, which will be of great benefit to them in learning Godly direction in training their children from Gods Word so their children are trained to have a Bible world-view. However, the primary teachers of children are their parents.
