They Want Your Child!
From the first family to your family, a threat lurks for every child. Genesis 4 fails to record the reaction of either Adam or Eve upon hearing that one son (Cain) killed another son (Abel). Several months later, upon the birth of a third son, Eve named him Seth saying, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” Surely her pain endured, and her questions lingered. The attack on the family persists to this day. Is it a coincidence that Paul when writing to the church at Ephesus preceded his teaching on Spiritual Warfare with teaching on family relationships? From fratricide to fiat, control and consequences abound regarding the welfare of your child.

Defending the Family
The attack on the Biblical family unit has never been greater. The pervasive influences of secular philosophy, psychology, and sociology have driven the traditional family unit to the brink of extinction. Like a spiritual tsunami, the influences of modern moral relativism are rapidly eroding the confidence of many Christians in Biblical foundational truths concerning marriage, family and parenting.
In writing to the church at Ephesus, the apostle Paul warned that “you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind.” Sadly many Christians are still looking to the “broken cisterns” of the world to find answers for their domestic challenges. Jesus said, “If the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.” Therefore, taking instruction from the blind guides of this world destines you to failure.

K-House for Kids
For years I have explored the idea of creating material for kids that taught them critical thinking skills. While living in England in 1995, I was given a chance to make a Bible presentation to the local middle school students during one of their morning assemblies. That gave me the chance to try and create something that had been swirling around in my head for a long time. That opportunity birthed the first of a series of “You Decide” presentations. I began the presentation by telling the children, “You are a Scientist. You must decide which came first; The Chicken or the Egg.” The excitement that was generated in the hall that day sparked a passion in me to prepare this young generation of future adults with a skill that was not, in my estimation, being taught.
Over the years of ministry partnership with Chuck Missler, I have witnessed the benefit of not just teaching people the Bible but also teaching them how to learn for themselves. The motto of Acts 17:11 stands as a core belief and practice within Koinonia House. Therefore, teaching people how to think is as important as teaching them what to think.
