How to Raise Godly Offspring

 







How to raise godly offspring. - Ray Comfort


If you want "godly offspring," it is essential that you make the time to establish a family altar. Build it out of the unmovable rocks of resolution. You will need to be resolute about this because it will be a battle. Your flesh will fight it, and you can be sure there will be a continual spiritual battle within your mind. "Circumstances" will constantly crop up. Your kids will occasionally groan when you announce that it is time for devotions. Loved ones may subtly, subconsciously discourage you. However, your time of family devotions should be a priority for your whole family. Don't be legalistic about it, but as much as possible, put all other things aside before you postpone or cancel family devotions.


It will be an altar of sacrifice, as you sacrifice your time, your energy, and sometimes your dignity. For years, our kids heard, "Six o'clock-reading time." My wife and I dropped whatever we were doing, and the children learned to do the same, and we gathered as a family. Making it a priority for your family's growth will speak volumes about its importance in their lives.


Again, you will find that there are many excuses for not having devotions. You may be pressed for time, feel tired, or think you are unable to teach the Bible. However, there is one very powerful reason why you should have daily devotions: the eternal salvation of your children. (Adapted from How to Bring Your Children to Christ…& Keep Them There.)


Malachi 2:15 But did He not make them one, Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.


 







Bible contradiction? - Ray Comfort


Skeptics argue that some verses say God's anger does not last forever (Psa. 30:5; Jer. 3:12; Mic. 7:18), contradicting others that say God's anger lasts forever (Jer. 17:4; Matt. 25:46).


There are two types of God's anger mentioned in these verses. The first is a reference to His temporal anger against sin. Because He is merciful, He forgives those who turn to Him in true repentance. For example, in Jer. 3:11–13 God is speaking to sinful Israel: "I will not remain angry forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the LORD your God." However, Matt. 25:46 is a fearful reference to those who are the damned-those who refuse to repent and therefore die in their sins. One is a temporal anger, the other is eternal.


Micah 7:18 Who is a God like You, Pardoning iniquity And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, Because He delights in mercy.
