Mother, Father… A Thoughtful Message to Parents
FATHER, MOTHER Do You Know...
...that more than 17,000,000 boys and girls are growing up in our land without spiritual training of any kind? That 37,000,000 young people under the age of 25 are without any kind of religious instruction?
...that public school teachers of New York City found 860,000 children in their schools without any knowledge of right and wrong, and attributed this condition to a lack of Bible training in the home?
...that 85% of present-day crime is committed by youths under 25 years of age? Statistics on 10,000,000 criminal cases showed 85% of these young criminals did not attend Sunday School.
...that in 1855 America was recognized as the most law-abiding nation in the world? Today, according to the American Bar Association, it is the most criminal. And the moral and spiritual fiber of our nation is the lowest in its history.
...that this condition is the natural result of sin? “All have sinned” Romans 3:23 therefore all are under condemnation who have not believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour (John 3:18). ...our boys and girls who have reached the age of accountability are under this condemnation, and are just as much lost as those who are older? “For the wages of sin is death, but the Gift of God is eternal Life, through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans. 6:23.
...“that Christ died for our sins” I Corinthians. 15:3
...“that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life” John 3:16
...that “whosoever” includes Father and Mother? It also includes our precious boys and girls.
...that God’s command is: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6? Your children are largely what you make them, and you cannot point them to Christ unless you know Him as your own personal Saviour. If you fail in this responsibility and your child is lost, you as well as the child will give an account when you stand before Him. What will your answer be when you stand before the Judge of all the earth?
...that what the world needs is Jesus? For “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8. Repent and receive Christ as Saviour TODAY! Please give your children a chance to know Christ. He says, “I am the Way”
Dear Reader, there is no other way. Take your children to Sunday School, If you can’t take them, send them. But, far better, take them. Jesus said, “Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto Me: for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”
