This is the tragedy, that the sins of the fathers are visited upon the children, and whilst so many parents have had a wonderful spree in sin, yielding themselves as the instruments of destruction, it is the children who suffer, and suffer and suffer.
Kids, the sheer magnitude of them, victims of a world gone insane! Kids, living and dying, symbol of a great tragedy, born from a previous generation of revolution. Kids, rebellious, resentful, anxious, and lost... the complete and tragic breakdown of the family unit. Kids, captivated by movies, television, music, drugs and demons... timebombs, ready to explode, wanting understanding but misunderstood. Kids, left to be raised by the television while mom and dad hasten after pleasure, social status and the deceptive lie of material prosperity.
Kids, pre-teen, teen, on up into their early twenties, confused over their identity. Through the medium of television and movies, the drug user, the drug pusher, the killer, the sodomite, the prostitute, the rock musician ...the guys or gals who rebel against moral ethics and common sense have become the heroes of this generation. "Good guys wear black". It is common place now for junior highschool and highschool kids to pack their favorite guns to school ...looking for trouble. It is common to buy and sell drugs, come to school drunk, threaten the teacher or even kill the teacher, and to defy all rules. Multitudes of children turn to the sick trap of prostitution to make a little money. Gangs flourish, blood runs, families weep ...your boy or girl has been killed, gone to juvenile hall, become pregnant, overdosed on drugs, been molested or caught AIDS! The state is helpless, the family is helpless, the church is helpless. As if stealing booze and getting drunk wasn't enough for the emerging "GENERATION X", now it has come to drinking human blood and eating human flesh through cannibalism, as involvement in satanism and the occult skyrockets.
Some years ago the Spirit spoke to us and told us that eating human flesh and drinking blood would become common place. The LUST FOR VIOLENCE is insatiable, and it is going to increase. We have stimulated our appetite for destruction with a steady diet of Hollywood junk food. We have become mesmerized by million dollar movies, flashy rock and roll stars, and now the filthy rappers singing about the glories of rape and the pleasure of killing. We must face the truth, the Bible has been thrown out and the devil has taken over.
This is not to say that all kids have joined the wayward army of rebellion, not hardly. Yet the tendency and temptation to join the ranks looms over our youth everyday. When first degree murder, called abortion, is protected and sanctioned by the law, imagine what kind of effect this must have upon our generation. When women, by the millions, destroy their unborn children, where does this leave the youth of today? Has human life become completely worthless? Judging from the millions of unwanted children who are ripped, torn and sucked from their mothers' wombs each year, we apparently think so. Garbage cans filled with torn and bleeding fetuses on their way to the dumps, and that is just where the kids of GENERATION X are headed.
Why do the streets claim so many kids? Could it be that their homes (in some cases hovels) are full of vermin, abuse of all sorts, hypocrisy, hatred and neglect, and the streets seem a better home? Lack of love, lack of leadership, and a generation overrun with psychologists, psychiatrists and youth counsellors who "preach" a demented brand of humanism with no discipline, is it any wonder that parents are helpless to enforce any kind of chastisement and disipline in the home? We have too many over-educated psycho-weirdos convincing our society that discipline and corporal punishment will psychologically damage our children for life! Yet the Word of God, which is the authority on child raising, says, "Withhold not correction from the child, for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod and shalt deliver his soul from Hell." Prov. 23:14,15.
Of course, we know that there are always some who go to extremes, yet just because a few abuse discipline and correction does not justify making all correction and punishment of children against the law. "The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself bringeth shame." Prov. 29:15 NEGLECT! We don't want to bother with raising our children according to God's way. We don't want to, we're not going to, and we are going to pay the price for not doing so. I firmly believe that not all children are going to turn out right no matter how much we apply the right kind of correction. Some are Hell bound in their rebellion! But that's no reason to throw out the baby with the bathwater.
Kids, for the most part, are starved for love, tough love. Many desire correction and we have handled plenty who wanted to be told they were wrong. On the other hand, we have handled plenty who hated correction and hated us for even suggesting it. But our job as parents, guardians, leaders and friends is to give true love, which includes correction, discipline and punishment when needed. If we trust in God, we will leave the results in His hands. A lot could be written on this "urgent" subject, but one thing is for sure, we have got a crisis, blood is already running in the streets. We have got a lost generation, GENERATION X, rushing head long to destruction. Do we care enough to share our time, our energy, our love for the lost generation?
There is in reality only one solution to the problem of today's lost generation. That solution is to repent and come to Jesus Christ, for only He can help those who are lost in the devil's bargain. God is reaching out to the youth of today and He is desiring that they be spared from Hell. What can we do to stop the mindless destruction of our youth? Parents need to check out their own lifestyles first. Are you planting the seeds of rebellion and destruction in your own children? It is our responsibility as parents to walk uprightly and keep ourselves right with God for the sake of our children, giving them an example to follow. It is one thing to blame others, it is another to change ourselves.
