PARENTS ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD FOR THEIR STEWARDSHIP

Miley Cyrus from the Disney days, with her father
Nothing could be more obvious in today's corrupt celebrity culture than this fact. We see more and more unspeakable crimes committed by young people everywhere. The corruption spread a long time ago to what was once the wholesome Disney television network. You can't even let your children watch Nickelodeon anymore. TV Land used to show the old TV classics like the Andy Griffith show and Leave it to Beaver. The ABC Family channel has nothing worthwhile or family friendly except for the 700 Club from the Christian Broadcasting Network.  The most recent outrage, in the long line of outrages by former child actors and actresses, was committed by Miley Cyrus. She is the daughter of achy-breaky singer Billy Ray, who is still to correct his daughter's misbehavior, and thus, allow her to become more outrageous in the future.

But is this what God has in mind for us parents? The biggest job any parent can have is to minister, raise up and disciple our children in the Ways of the Lord, the Scriptures and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. We are not supposed to be their enabler by giving them no boundaries. Modern parents, who were led astray by Dr Spock and modern liberalism, have fallen flat on their face and are in real danger of Judgment of Holy God, if they do not wake up and get right themselves.

God gave clear instructions for parents on how to raise our children. I explore these in today's message here on the PLUMBLINE TV show, as it is timely for what American parents are facing. Our pre-teens and even toddlers are bombarded by unsaved network TV executives whose only morality is the fat bank account! Please read the following passage and then watch the exposition of it, in the video teaching below:

Deuteronomy 6

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the judgments which the Lord your God has commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you are going over to possess it, so that you and your son and your grandson might fear the Lord your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged. O Israel, you should listen and [a]be careful to do it, that it may be well with you and that you may multiply greatly, just as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you,in a land flowing with milk and honey.

Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as[b]frontals [c]on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
