In this presentation, Meeke explores the best way to grow Christian children who are able to resist the strong pull of the culture. Learn a new term: Culture-proof. Learn how to do it and what results you should expect. The loss of generations of Christian kids should be enough to force the question, "How do we help them resist?"
Do you ever wonder about the type of world your kids will inherit? What about their contemporaries? Do you want to understand the children your kids will study with and work alongside in the future? Meeke explores the big-picture questions of who exactly has the next generation and how they are shaping that generation right now. Christian parents don’t need to be alarmed; we just need to be equipped.
We’re all set. We’ve got the curriculum, the co-op, and the extra-curricular activities. The days shape up nicely when they do shape up nicely… but what about Christ? Have we neglected the primary reason for homeschooling? In this presentation, Meeke and Wil encourage parents to check the heartbeat of their homeschool. The end of homeschooling isn’t homeschooling or even education (gasp). Might we be missing this fact in the growing popularity of homeschooling and the busyness of community?
It seems that everywhere we look, parents are playing the role of goalie. We’ve got to block culture's attacks that are aimed squarely at our children. In this presentation, Meeke identifies five major points of cultural contact and their sinister aim to steal away our children. Learn how to identify these points and protect your children against them. Learn cultural code words and their implications on your role as protector-in-chief.
The culture in which we live resembles a modern-day Babylon. Daniel and his Hebrew companions were thrust into a culture and way of life foreign to what they were taught in Judah but being placed in Babylon didn’t turn them into Babylonians. Why? Because they were raised to be ready. Wil discusses how to scripturally raise our children in this current godless culture to be ones who are ready to go in and confront the culture head-on. With the biblical examples of Daniel and his Hebrew companions we can learn a lot about what it takes to be ready to live in a culture hostile to fidelity and submission to God.
Do the Word of God and the history of the Church help us navigate hostile territory? Certainly. When we dig into the Word and acknowledge the legacy of the Body of Christ, we win critical battles. Christians don’t have to run from our history; we must know it and share it as we demolish arguments.
What is CRT? Does the Church need it as an analytical tool? Not at all. When we trace
the origins of this philosophy of man, we find it incompatible with biblical Christianity.
In fact, we find it’s a different gospel.
What if the key to a healthy marriage is seeking the glory of God in our individual lives
and sanctifying marriage as a holy display of the wisdom of God? What if we pursued holy
marriages rather than mere happiness? Could we change our aim and
strengthen our marriages? One thing we know for sure is He is worthy.
Does our ethnicity serve a purpose? Should we all be colorblind? How do we understand melanin in the advancing of the Gospel? Who we are, where we live, and the time in which we live in are determined by our sovereign God for His expressed purpose.
Is there a cause? How do we define justice and how do we recognize injustice? Does God
care? This presentation acknowledges that we must care because God cares about justice. However, we must not be manipulated to align with missions that are antithetical to our faith.
God has given us through the family a pathway for our children to receive the Gospel. The home should be the first place that our children are presented how to know Christ. Psalm 78 in its first few verses show how the commands of the Lord and his precepts are to be passed down generationally. We explore from this chapter and others how God intended that our children would hear the Word of God and see the Word of God lived in front of them as a testament to why they should follow the God of their parents.
God deals in generations. All throughout the Bible we see where families are listed, generations are spoken of and how changes in one generation led to things in future generations for good or bad. In this teaching we explore the importance of Generations to God and how He uses new generations for His glory.
For the Follower of Christ this is not our final destination. We can’t get so caught up in the trappings of this world that we miss our opportunities of effectiveness on behalf of the Kingdom of God. God has called us to be His ambassadors on this earth while we have this earthly dwelling. Lets look at our mandate from God to be Kingdom minded and to represent our heavenly dwelling place here on earth.
