“Neither make mention of the names of their gods.” This statement came from Joshua’s final address to the Israelite people.
Pretty exclusive, huh?
How are you doing with that in this “politically correct” world?
Are you lifting up only the name of Jesus in your household? Or are you giving place to things that aren’t of God? Things that go against his word?
At first it seems unlikely that within a Christian home there would be the attempt to expose the children to sin. But how often do we hear “you need to expose your children to things of the world so they won’t go wild when they’re on their own” or “I’m going to introduce all religions to my children and give them the freedom of what religion they’d like to be part of”?
These statements may sound innocent. But that doesn’t make them of God.
Adhere to Joshua’s words of wisdom. Preach only Jesus. The “freedom of choice” will only lead to a cell of isolation from our Lord.
