Parents, you were commanded by Jesus to “make disciples.” The most important place for you to make disciples is in your own home. The most important ones to disciple are your own children. Here’s a great way to add to their discipleship. Take them, especially teenagers, to see this movie – Is Genesis History? It will show in theaters only one night, Thursday night, February 23. Check here for show times and locations. Go here to watch the trailer.
Here’s a synopsis from the movie website:
“…a comprehensive documentary featuring scientists and scholars looking at the world and explaining how it intersects with the history recorded in Genesis. From rock layers to fossils to lions to stars, this fascinating film will challenge and change the way you see the world.” (Read all about it here.)
George Barna, Ken Ham, and others have alerted us in recent years of a scary reality. A high percentage of children who grow up in Christian homes and churches leave the church and God after graduating high school. They name several causes for this. One of those causes is the insufficient work of discipleship, teaching children a biblical worldview. Many don’t see reality and the world the Bible teaches. Those who have not been taught these things find themselves unable to stand up against the barrage of attacks on the Bible and Christianity. When they get out into life on their own, in the workplace, and in the university they no longer think of the Bible as truthful so there’s no reason to think of themselves as Christians.
This is the very purpose for the movie, to show that Genesis is real human history. In the movie Del Tackett, creator of The Truth Project, guides you through thought provoking explanations by microbiologists, archeologists, paleontologists, science philosophers, geologists, astronomers, and others giving evidences that support the historicity of the book of Genesis. It is possible that most youngsters who walk away from the faith do so because they lack a grasp of these things and suddenly they are made to think that the whole message of the Bible is fake. When they think everything the church has taught them is untrue, they just walk away.
Don’t allow this happen to your kids! Do everything in your power to root your kids firmly in the truth of the Bible.
