Ever wonder when christian parents, who take their children to church, bible study, prayed, and read the word of God with their children, and teach them about Jesus. Then take photos of Santa Clause, the Easter bunny, and get money from the tooth fairy. The child then grows up walks away from the faith and may denounce Jesus. The parents then say "I'm not sure what went wrong we took them to Church, read the bible, told them about Jesus." STOP lying to your children.
Proverbs 12:22(NKJV) 22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal truthfully are His delight.
It is amazing to me some of the negative response to this, there have been Christ followers who admit they love their children but yet want to deceive them and continue to lie to them.
John 8:44(NKJV) 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-11(NKJV) 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
Some want to bend God's word to fit their life.
2 Timothy 4:1-5
New King James Version (NKJV) 1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at[a] His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Do you really love your children? STOP lying to them.
If your pastor, teacher tell you it is OK to tell your children about santa clause please leave that church and do NOT go back.
Proverbs 12:22 (NKJV)22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal truthfully are His delight.
