Glorifying God through Prayer and Worship
Living a Life that totally Glorifies God
Pray that all will teach them in a Godly way
According to God’s word, we are to be 1teaching children God's truth and educating our children to be fruitful and productive individuals. Young boys at a very 2early age should be nurtured and guided for a future career that will help them be able to support a family as well as be beneficial to society. Likewise, young girls should be taught what it takes to be a good wife and how to raise a family. But most of all, we should be teaching them about our Awesome God and Creator, showing them at a very early age what Christianity is all about. Women should be even singing and reading the bible out loud to them while they are still in the womb. For this is pleasing to the Lord.
But, what are we really doing? Well, there’s mindless video games, nonsense cartoons and kid shows, as well as the over indulgence of sports which we have allowed to plagued our youth. Also, young women have been duped in believing that they must pursue a career outside the home. Likewise, Young men are pushed out of their homes into collages with the false idea that they must have a degree to exceed in this life. And unfortunately, our system of thinking believes this and has given into it.
Now let’s not forget discipline (spanking your children). It seems our society today thinks it knows better than God on how to correct our children. For His word tells us not to spare the 3rod of correction, for in applying it you’re actually showing more 4love than you would if you withheld it. But unfortunately, you can get into big 5trouble if you take a belt to your child these days. Again, this is all about our corrupt way of thinking that we know better than God, but the truth of the matter is, we don’t.
TEACHING CHILDREN ABOUT SEX
Why do we treat a physical act that is a starting point for human life on earth, as though it is demonic and evil? Yes, I'm talking about sex, which for some twisted reason we feel the need to hide it from the eyes of young children who came into being because of it. People, this is a God given act which we should not be ashamed of. However, just for the record, I'm in no way endorsing physical sexual contact with young children. This is a sin indeed which can cause physical and emotional harm to young children who are not ready to engage in physical sex. However, this article below is to encourage parents to allowing young children to visually learn the proper technics of sex from their parents without being physically touched by them in an inappropriate manner. So, please read with an open mind and let God dictate His truths to you.
First of all, we should realize the fact that we are visual oriented people. Children can learn a lot from what they see their parents doing, whether it be at church, at home or anywhere else. So, wouldn't it make sense that all Christian parents teach their children about sex, not just in a verbal manner but in a visual one as well. I know that this may be a controversial subject among some people. But when children (under the age of 12) get to peak in and see their parents in a sexual act every now and then, they can learn at an early age what sex is and what it should look like and sound like (And yes I'm talking to you Christian parents with young children). But by hiding it from them, they can grow up feeling that sex is dirty, evil and wrong. But does not the word of God say: “You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house and walk by the way, when you lie down and rise up.” (Deuteronomy 11:19 Sept.) Shouldn't we be applying this to sex as well.
(Imagine a society in which people live in close quarters and privacy is a luxury. It's nor hard to imagine that for purely practical reasons, people would end up being seen by others when they have sex, including by their own children. If the norm in the society was that this was not a big deal, and the normal pattern of behavior was simply to ignore the couple, it's easy to imagine that seeing one's parents have sex wouldn't make for any psychological trauma.)
Think about it. In the past, and I’m sure even now, children in some countries grow up within families who live in small quarters, even tents. These families being farming and agriculture based, have children who witness their livestock as well as other animals mating and having babies. And yes I’m sure because of the small quarters, they even get a peak of mommy and daddy in the lovemaking act as well. This was and still is totally natural for them. These same children grow up knowing the facts of life from little on and then passed it on to the next generation. And I’m convinced that a society such as they, are more together than we are here in our “modern culture.” So, why do we make such a big deal over all this? I’ll tell you why, because we all have been brainwashed. This is all rooted from the teachings of the early 6Church of Rome (Catholic Church) that taught sex in itself is evil. Unfortunately, this mindset has influenced us and our culture in ways we don’t even realize yet. And still to this day, the Catholic Church forbids their priest to marry even in light of all the physical sex abuse it caused to 7children.
But just a reminder, children under 12 have not reached full sexual maturity yet, so for them to see their parents in a sexual act would be okay. It will only be sex education for them in the purest form; and it's all part of the design of our Awesome God. So, we must be diligent to teach our children within this window of time that God has provided for us parents. Because if you hide it from them when their young, then later on in life they will have that twisted view that sex is dirty and defiling. Because reasoning goes, why would you hide something that suppose to be good (then you will have you work cut out for you trying to explain the facts of life). So, I encourage all parents with young children, have an open-door policy which allows your kids to be able to peak in and observe you having sex when they want to. However, you should in no way force them to watch. I’m sure if you just leave the door open, their curiosity will get them to peak in and watch every now and then.
(When John and Cindy Thompson’s children finally ask the big question, “Where do babies come from?” they decided to skip right past all the stork talk and jump right into the real stuff. In fact, being the open-minded parents they are, John and Cindy knew that showing them would be far more educational than simply telling the boring “birds and bees” story. “Cindy and I brought the kids into the bedroom and made love in front of them,” John said. “I showed them my seminal fluid and explained how it traveled up mommy’s vagina to fertilize her egg and make a baby. They really seemed to get it.” Now that the kids know where babies come from, they’re allowed to watch their parents have sex whenever they want—and they’ve even picked up some great tips. “They understand different positions, what makes mommy feel good, what makes daddy feel good,” Cindy said. “I think when my daughter begins having sex she’s going to be light years ahead of the other girls, be a much better lover, which will help her get a better man.”…..John and Cindy are hoping their story encourages other parents not to be afraid of going beyond the “stork” story with their own kids. “We don’t have to have those awkward conversation about the birds and bees, trying to tiptoe around the subject,” Cindy said. “It’s so much easier to just show the kids, instead of trying to tell them.”)
Now of course when a child has started to go into puberty (around 10 for girls and 11 for boys, or sometimes even sooner), they should start being weened away from seeing their parents in a sexual act (the cutoff should be at 11 years of age). This is true because they are now approaching a mature stage in life where their sexual desires are kicking in. So, to be safe, the next people they should see engaged in a sexual act is themselves with their own spouse. For we never can be too careful when it comes to avoiding sexual (8)temptations for matured adults. That's why it's so important to take advantage to train them while their still young. For once that window of opportunity closes, it's going to be what this world throws at them, which isn't good.
So, in conclusion to all this, let's dare to stand on God's word and not on man's. Let us brake away from our own traditions and taboos, using God given wisdom and discernment in everything we do. For His Holy Spirit is to be our teacher, whether it be how to raise and discipline our children, or even how to sex educate them. We can always trust in Him for guidance. Amen
Therefore, you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be immovable before your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house and walk by the way, when you lie down and rise up. (Deuteronomy 11:18-19 Sept.)
