It seems these parents have had their five children seized simply because they are teaching them Christian values. As we see the increasing secularization of our Western world, we can only expect incidents like this to be on the rise. Our Western culture as a whole has turned away from biblical values and now punishes those who choose to pattern their lives and beliefs according to Scripture. This is happening more and more in America and around the world.
As Christians we need to be bold in proclaiming the gospel and standing firmly on God’s Word. We need to be salt and light to this dying world as we give them the only message that will change hearts and lives for now and eternity—the gospel of Jesus Christ. There’s a spiritual battle raging right now (Ephesians 6:12) and we need to fight this battle with the proclamation of God’s Word and the gospel!
This is why I believe the ministry of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and coming Ark Encounter (opening July 7 in Northern Kentucky) are such vital outreaches for our day. We are doing the best we can to boldly and publicly proclaim the truth of God’s Word and the gospel. Praise the Lord we still largely have the freedom to do this in the USA. Pray for the Norwegian Christian family and pray the Lord will allow the freedom to teach His Word and that the gospel will permeate the nations of the world.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
