Childless by Choice: America & the American Church?
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss why parents don’t want children and how come children don’t want parents and why the government is stepping in trying to take over the role of parenting. They continue to discuss a disturbing practice called re-homing. This practice involves adoptive parents seeking how they can “re-home” the child they adopted because they no longer want to parent them. This is a practice that is reportedly being called the “The Child Exchange” and it is being done on the internet. CBN reports “One post from a mother who adopted a Guatemalan 11-year- old “I am totally ashamed to say it but we do truly hate this boy.” They continue to discuss the travesty and how the child is rejected twice. They continue to discuss how many people involve themselves in the conversation of parenting when in fact they have never had children or they aborted the child they did have. To make matters worse the government wants to play a role in the lives of your children yet they want to control how you raise and discipline them. One example they discussed was that of a Judge. If someone in the courtroom refuses to comply with the judge’s instruction the judge will have the person physically arrested put in cuffs and escorted to jail. However, the government wants parents to discuss time out with their children as opposed to giving them the discipline they need. They continue to discuss a group called No Kidding which is an international social club for childfree couples and singles. One of their alleged members said that they were “indifferent” toward children. Indifferent is defined by the dictionary as without interest, not caring, apathetic, and impartial. They continue to discuss how we got here in society where parents don’t want children and if some are honest they hate them. Some pursued having children out of idolatrous reasons for what they can benefit out of having children and once they have them and now hate them it’s their same idolatry that refuses to allow them to go to a loving family who wants them less they look bad for giving up their children. They go further to ask the question if what we are seeing as society’s view towards children a result of the church’s view of winning souls for the Lord. Many in the church won’t win a single person to the Lord in their lifetime. The truth is that it takes time and less of oneself to win the loss. Is the church fruitless because of the idolatry of self? They further discuss the need for Revival to sweep across the country and for a Great Awakening like the previous Great Awakening that have had tremendous spiritual impact on our nation. Dear God, end abortion send revival.
Kingdom Impact 100
Greg encourages us to begin a Kingdom Impact 100 group in our cities. Essentially this would be a group of one hundred believers who contribute $1,000 each. Collectively they would have $100,000 dollars at their disposal to invest in charities, groups and initiatives that would advance the kingdom of God. Instead of being concerned with the removal of the Ten Commandments from Federal property buy land and put up the Ten Commandments for all to see. He also shares how erecting phone prayer booths like what has been done in Kansas is a good start as well. Kingdom Impact 100 will you start one in your city?
