What Every Parent Needs To Know—Take Responsibility For Your Legacy (Part 1)

You have a part, a significant part in what becomes of your legacy. Over the next week or so, we will share word-based examples that will help us do what it takes to fulfill God’s specific command in Genesis 1:28a to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth with men and women in His image and likeness. Let’s start with some statistics of what the earth is being populated with today using this article by Pastor Keith Surface of Calvary Outreach Ministries, from which I quote profusely:

A few weeks ago, I wrote a Simply Christ article in which I referenced the findings of a recent CDC study concerning the sexual identity of American High School students. This study found that almost 25% of High School students did not identify themselves as “straight.” This was double the percentage of just a few years before.
In another study, a 2021 Gallop Poll surveyed the percentage of Americans self-identifying as LGBTQ. Again, it revealed some astounding statistics. The “traditionalist generation” (those born before 1946) has less than 1% who are LGBTQ. The rest of the results are shown below.
Traditionalists (born before 1946)  —0.8% LGBTQ                     
Baby boomers (born 1946-1964)   —2.6% LGBTQ
Generation X (born 1965-1980)     —4.2% LGBTQ
Millennials (born 1981-1996)          —10.5% LGBTQ                   
Generation Z (born 1997-2003)     —20.8% LGBTQ  
According to this study, a person born in 2003 is 26 times more likely to be LGBTQ than a person born in 1946. These staggering figures do not even include those born after 2003. For decades “knowledgeable people” have assured us that those who are LGBTQ are a product of a natural genetic selection in a very small percentage of people and has little or nothing to do with environment or spiritual influence. The rapid increase in percentages of people caught up in the LGBTQ lifestyle reveals the absolute fallacy of such an argument.
The truth of the matter is that God has given America and nations that copy her up to “vile affections” just as He did with ancient Israel (Romans 1:26-27). Our children are being consumed by unclean spirits as parents, pastors, and teachers drift along in a slumber of spiritual death. “Your words are filled with hate” some say, but I say “No! My words are calling for moms and dads to wake up before their children also are dragged into this pit of darkness.” My heart breaks for what America’s parents along with their children are facing. The words of Jesus so fit this hour, when He said, “…weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children” (Luke 23:28).”  **To be contd.

The same is true in Nigeria as we see the children turn to cultism and evil pursuits for fame and money. Parents must wake up. They must wake up to what is surrounding their children, entertaining their children, teaching their children, and has access to their children through cell phones and social media. But most importantly, parents must awake from their own spiritual slumber of death. Selah
