Satan’s War On Children…

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, 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.  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 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. (Matthew 18:2-6)

The world I was born into, was already undergoing a moral and social transition which probably alarmed my elders, but it is all but gone now. The only thing my children, grandchildren and their generation can know of it, is the anecdotes we who once lived in it pass on to them.

Particularly in the summertime, It almost seems now like a fantasy world; of children running the streets or country fields, all running and playing outside, girls chanting sing song  rhymes as they turned a jump rope, jacks and hopscotch, little boys playing baseball with made up bases, a few gloves, a beat up Bat and ball, or playing army, or tag, or hide and go seek, in the summer, hoping not to be called inside by our mothers when the street lights went on.

I am not saying it was a perfect world, there were already spiritually deadly encroachments pouring in, as Television became darker and more sensual and the old barriers against pornography collapsed. One shouldn’t look at everything, particularly in the tender years.

There were still a good deal of adults around us who made an earnest effort to shield us from the unseemly aspects of the world, and to preserve something of the blissful ignorance of our youth, of things which are toxic to the soul. My mother, for example would always say something like, “don’t watch that movie, or read that book, ” and the reason why we shouldn’t? “It is not good for your soul”, she would say. and though I had no idea what she meant by that, for a while I took her word for it.

For the most part, we knew none of the depressing and confusing vocabulary foisted upon modern children these days, such as “Gay”, “Lesbian” ,”Transgender”,”Bisexual”, ‘safe sex’, ‘birth control” and I could go on and on listing the bewildering and confusing terminology modern children are laden with, at ever younger and more tender ages.

Why should a child know what a homosexual is? Who does this help? The child or the degenerate?

It would have been unthinkable to imagine a time when American school districts would bring in Homosexual activists to teach children the perverse and complex sexuality which they themselves are immersed in. One would have thought it a joke to be told that in the future a wholesome institution such as the Boy Scouts would be forced to allow degenerates in as Scout Masters.

In our day many adults still realized something of the sacredness of children, I think their outlook was still influenced by the stern warning of Jesus himself , when he told us

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.(Matthew 18:10)

It was the Judeo Christian revelation which elevated children, in much the same way as it elevated women.

In the old pagan world, children were seen as inconveniences, and even non-persons. The Romans practiced”exposure”, which means when a Roman had an “unplanned pregnancy” they would often put the newborn babe out in the wild to get rid of it. The early Christians condemned this practice and even ‘reaped’ those exposed babies, taking them in at their own expense and adopting them to be raised as Christians.

Roman law gave the Father complete rights over Wife and children, a Roman father could beat a child to death and not be tried or punished for it, under the law of Pater Familia.

The following is from an article, called “How Christianity Invented Children”,

As the historian O.M. Bakke points out in his invaluable book When Children Became People, in ancient Greece and Rome, children were considered nonpersons.

Back then, the entire social worldview was undergirded by a universally-held, if implicit, view: Society was organized in concentric circles, with the circle at the center containing the highest value people, and the people in the outside circles having little-to-no value. At the center was the freeborn, adult male, and other persons were valued depending on how similar they were to the freeborn, adult male. Such was the lot of foreigners, slaves, women…and children.

The Jewish world, was not as callous in their view of children, having been tutored under the law of Moses , which definitely elevated children. But the LORD’s disciples, being typical first century Jews had to be rebuked when they acted as though Jesus had no time to waste on mere children…

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.  But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.  And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.(Matthew 19:13-15)

The fate of  Women and children go together. To restore the dignity and value of the one is to directly impact the other. On the other hand to diminish one is to diminish the other. The Right to abortion, which we saw the Irish celebrate in the streets recently(as tho they had won a war), does not elevate women it diminishes them.

What makes a woman special, beyond the fact that she too is made in the Image of God ?

The fact that to her has been entrusted to conception and development of life in the womb.This is why no western nations would send women off to combat as though they were interchangeable with men. Women are to be protected, the womb is a sacred place, because life itself is sacred. This is the unique Judeo Christian revelation, which has give the world a brief glimpse of what true freedom and happiness can be like.

But we are currently Paganizing, and leaving all of that. Many modern children know nothing of the older world, other than the negative emphasis of it taught in the propaganda mills they are calling schools. “All that is old, is bad, evil, oppressive and binding”, they don’t know that in so many ways it was so much better.

Once we as a society have cast away the sanctity of life itself, we diminish the bearer of life as well. Once we divorce human sexuality from potential life, and reduce it to a momentary ecstatic experience, then women are rendered as objects, a means to an end, interchangeable with a perverse variety of other objects for gratification.

This is why homosexuality and all other forms of perversion are devastatingly destructive of women, children and the family. The acceptance of homosexuality, whether in practice or politics or out of a twisted sense of equity is the current watershed, as is abortion, of heaven and hell. Those who accept it in any way prove by doing so that they are damned.

The thing to remember is that God knows how to make a millstone, for the lake of fire.

    I recall when I was 11 or 12, I overheard my father telling my mother that a certain blouse she got as a gift was sexy. I had to ask what that meant. Even though the “good ole days” weren’t all THAT good, they were far more conducive to life on this planet. Can only hope that we, innocent children and righteous adults, don’t have to endure this much longer. Lord, have we reached the point of no return? Like Lot, we are vexed by a wicked and perverse generation. Is it nearly time to go?

    Your memories are so similar to my memories Pastor Bill, albeit mine are English ones from West Sussex, UK. Thank you for this inspired article, including the awesome warning words of the last sentence.

    Matthew 25:13 King James Version
    “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”

    Luke 21:34-36 (KJV)
    “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

    For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

    Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

    You are in my prayers, brother Bill.

    I COME FROM A MINING COMMUNITY (NO MINES NOW) My father told me if a man was ever discovered to be homosexual he would commit suicide. I didn’t know the Lord then; I know homosexuals can be transformed and regenerated thanks be to God. But it shocks me to see how children are taught that this is just another lifestyle choice, no shame in it, and even children should have the choice. It is sickening and also frightening.
    My little grand daughter had long curly hair and had it cut short. She was tormented and told she was “turning into a transgender” She was frightened and distressed as she didn’t know what it meant, to such an extent that her mum took her out of the school to home school her.
    I try to be positive, but I can’t help thinking that society has gone too far and there is no way back.
    Maranatha.

    I wonder should we use the word homosexual? It seems to lessen the sin, as does using the word lifestyle. It whitewashes what the Bible calls an “abomination,” “a sin against one’s own body,” defiling, etc. We let the world dictate our speech rather than using biblical language. Now even the visible church is calling this an acceptable “lifestyle”. See https://thirtypiecesofsilver.org

    Seems like a barrage from almost every angle…

    Recently, I took my 14 yr old twin boys for a check-up. I was told they would receive a “questionnaire” that was “between them and the provider only”… not for parents to see.

    Of course, I insisted on seeing it first.
    I was horrified.
    Not only did it ask if my homeschooled sons were (already) sexually active,
    it went on to give an EXPLICIT list of many different TYPES of sexual activity…
    (unspeakable things, that up until recently would not have been discussed or known by most).
    I refused the questionnaire for my children – probably receiving a red-flag on our ‘chart’.

    We must be on guard for the souls of our children… and ourselves. Maranatha!!
