To All Christian Parents and Grandparents:
I would remind you that if you are walking faithfully in the Lord yourself, you will be led by the Holy Spirit, the "Spirit of Truth." In obedience to the God of Truth, you must teach your childrent by both precept and personal example that there are no "lilttle white lies," that anything less than the whole truth comes from a spirit of lying which is rooted in our own flesh, and fed and encouraged by the Enemy of our souls. Further, they need to be taught that "opinions," i.e., our feelings, desires, etc., that are not based on a full knowledge of all the facts of a situation, and guided by the Bible which, again, is the only source for truth and unassailable history, are very likely to be tainted to some significant degree with error.
To show the seriousness of this, i.e., what the end of failing to submit to and defend the truth will be, read and meditate on both 1 Corinthians 5:6 and Galatians 5:9 which emphasize the same truth:
"Examine yourselves" (2 Cor 13:5) is once more an applicable exhortation. Let us do this with a sober desire to please God, bless our children, and honor Him who is the Truth. In the end, our eternity and the eternity of our children will reflect the degree to which we submit to the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
