In the last few weeks we saw some major developments in the Middle East and North Korea, possibly causing some of you to worry about the potential for war, and others to expectantly look to the sky for Jesus’ return. And regardless of what you think all this means for you, I know many parents and grandparents who carry the special burden of worrying about how the generations after them will cope, wondering “what will they go through?” and maybe most importantly, “will they remain faithful?” After all, the Enemy has already done a great job undermining Judeo-Christian values in culture, and twisting the Bible to subvert and misguide many professing Christians. So today we’ll take a look at some areas that are the biggest potholes that can sidetrack or even derail their faith.
Table Talk Notes
The Social Justice movement…
…along with public education’s focus on evolution and humanism, have skewed the beliefs of many professing “Christians”, causing our kids to abandon faith at the rate of up to 80% before they graduate college.
Humanism: an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.
Evolution is no longer “theory” but now taught as fact despite its unprovability, convincing children that they are random occurrences evolved from primates, no different than animals—claiming “science” as basis for this belief (and anthropogenic climate change), they now deny “science” when it comes to biology of what sex you are.

Postmillennialism: Christ will return after Christians establish His Kingdom on the earth. Also known as Dominionism.
Jim Wallis’ conversation with Mike in July 2010: The “liberal” version blends humanism, Marxist liberation theology & social justice with environmentalism: “we must create a peaceful, pristine planet before Jesus can return.”
Does scripture anywhere even suggest this? Then where did it come from?
Globalism: The “New World Order”, supported by Bill Gates, George Soros and George HW Bush alike, believes “humanity’s destiny is unity” [from Facebook’s New World Order (official support group)], proposing a Utopia on earth where we have open borders, one world religion, and complete harmony and egalitarianism.
Remember the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9.

As Saul Alinsky preached, it needs control of healthcare, education, debt, poverty/welfare, guns and religion, fomented by class warfare.
“Rules for Radicals” epigraph (a short quotation or saying at the beginning of a book or chapter, intended to suggest its theme):
“Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”
Amillennialism: Jesus is already reigning on his throne in heaven, and this present “church age” is His Kingdom over which He rules.Does it look like Jesus’ will is being done on earth? Click To Tweet

2 Timothy 3:1 | But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
2 Peter 3:3-7 | …knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
Romans 3:10-18 | as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
So what can you do?
Get your kids out of public school and research alternatives:
Get into a solidly biblical teaching church
Get to know that church’s youth leader, and what he/she is teaching your kids
Get your kid studying the bible with you, make games of memorizing scripture
Get out on some field trips:
