Today we are witnessing the convergence of two currents in history.
1. There is a growing army of individuals and organizations whose goal is to destroy Christianity and shape the world into a secular society. They are doing this through sophisticated and persuasive media indoctrination and “education” through TV, the Internet, and educational institutions. They are targeting children, using their natural curiosity about the world to undermine and destroy their faith in God and in the Bible. Because of the enormous barrage of media assaulting young minds, fifth-graders of today are wrestling with intellectual questions about faith and the Bible that never confronted former generations until they reached college.
2. Christians, as a whole, are more biblically illiterate and ill-equipped to answer the types of questions young people have than any generation of believers since the Bible has been readily available.
When media savvy kids of today hear adults give less than adequate “Christian” answers to their questions, they often assume the secular answers are true and jettison faith in God.
If you don’t think this is a problem, look at Europe today. England, which once was the center for world missions and led the world as Christianity’s chief intellectual defender is now a ghost town of Christianity.
The future Church, just one decade away, will be the ten-year-olds of today! We must protect and build their faith, train them to think with a true, biblical worldview, and equip them to live in a postmodern world.
As the founder of His Nature TV Ministries I am committed to this task and wish to encourage like-minded believers to join our growing team of professionals, volunteers and financial supporters, so we may produce cutting- edge, persuasive, apologetic training for the benefit of children and their families.
As a faith-based ministry we look to individuals, not advertising revenue, to fund our work.
