Today, we’re talking about the importance of equipping and preparing Christian children. The problem with lies is they don’t often sound like lies. They seem harmless, and even sound right. It is unthinkable so many parents send their kids out in today’s dark, godless, and hostile culture without any proper preparation. It’s not just adults who need to be grounded in truth and be ready to make a defense of the gospel. 

Author J. Warner Wallace says, “Parents are the most important apologists our kids will ever know. Mama Bear Apologetics will help you navigate your kids’ questions and prepare them to become committed Christ followers.”

SCRIPTURES

We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:5

but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; 1 Peter 3:15

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form; Colossians 2:8-9

As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; 15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ; Ephesians 4:15

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5
