Why Christian Kids Leave the Church

If you have left the church...read this.

If you are a Christian and have children...read this.

Jesus did not come to entertain us. He came to save us from the consequences of our own sin.

There are churches that still preach the gospel of Christ.

If you need help finding one - ask. I would love to help. It is too important to stay in a church that doesn't preach the truth.

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:1-10

That was such a good article. And so true. This makes me so thankful for the church we are in. And also encourages me to have those deep conversations with my kids.

Thank you dear friend.
