WHAT GLEN BECK REMINDS AND TEACHES US
Last week I was reading though one of my news sites Christian Post when one of the articles was about Glen Beck’s confession that his father was raped, abused and the turmoil this caused his family. Beck a guru of conservative politics and host of his radio show and the Blaze teaches and reminds us of how important these issues are and of course is a good example of how sin can inject itself into a family destroying it.
Most of all this confession only teaches and reminds of how important it is to keep our children safe and raised in a Godly and obedient home. How important is protecting our children and raising them in Gods eyes, how important are children to God so important that Jesus even ways in on this. Matthew 18:6-7 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!”
Now if you didn’t quite get what was said there I can put it in simpler terms, better that you take a gun and kill yourself than to harm a child and that includes everyone from the parents to outside influences such as movies, internet, books teachers, pastors anyone that can and would influence a child is held to a standard.
I believe three types of abuse destroy a child, verbal, physical and neglect. These three abuses can injure a person so bad no human medicine can heal the wound only God can forgive and heal this type of injury. I’ve see these types of abuse in my own family’s lives over generations and I can soundly say it’s true what damage you do to a child is life lasting.
Proverbs 29: 22 an angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins.
It’s so important we treat children with even temperament, one does not know the mentality of a child what one child can handle another child cannot.
Mark 10:13-16 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.
We can see how important children are to God and how important it is to raise them in a Godly form. This whole idea of an adult wanting to not allow teaching children about biblical principles and wanting to wait until the child is old enough to choose for themselves is moronic at best. Children depend on us to make good choices, to teach them. The follow us they mimic us in as much as they can, they look up to us and our choices if we choose not to teach them then we are guilty of letting them down and fall into the worlds influence.
We wonder why our world is changing so negative, this did not happen overnight. This happens when we become selfish and treat our children as toys, we play with them until we are board then discard them hoping they make good decisions. Good chance they won’t if we don’t make good decision also. Take care of our children protect them and teach them well and they will bless your home and the nation.

Note: I only use Glen Becks story in to account since it’s very applicable to the opinion editorial. I am not Mormon but of Christian faith and I do agree with most of Mr. Becks conservative ideology.
