“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” -Vladimir Lenin
It is interesting to see what is unfolding in front of our faces today. Here we have the younger people rising up in opposition to the face of the older. Scripture tells us: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). How could it be otherwise? After all, “Wisdom is justified by her children”(Luke 7:35).
Who is responsible for raising up these kids?
It is the adults that complain about the school system in America today and yet, they then send them to be illegally indoctrinated (Article 10 of the Bill of Rights), being subjected to everything and protected from nothing.
It is the adults that complain about the colleges in America and yet, their children are advised to go to communist institutions all the while they are then indebted to support it.
It is the same responsible party, the parents, that complain to their children about Hollywood, television and such, and somehow or another, expect to raise up children to then do the opposite of what it is that they have been taught to do. That is absurd.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” -Galatians 6:7-8
What we are seeing today is a mere reflection of the training given to them by their parents, period.
“What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.” –John Wesley
These “protesters” are the very ones that were handed off to the public school system for 18 years of their lives that are now, in many cases, being used by that same government as subversive looters and rioters, pushing forth a communist agenda.
The parents hand their kids over to the Communists and they learn to tear down what it is that their parents built and were to maintain.
After the Columbine school shootings in April of 1999, I knew it was for us to get into the public schools and to reach out to our young people across the country. So, we did (Isaiah 58:12). It is the greatest mission field in the world for the American Church.
Here was a warning letter from the up and comings over 20 years ago and, once again, the young people were ignored by the people.
The following letter from college student Marcy Musgrave in the editorial section of the Dallas Morning News on Sunday, May 2, 1999.
Generation NEXT has some Questions I am a member of the upcoming generation–the one after Generation X that has yet to be given a name. So far, it appears that most people are rallying behind the idea of calling us Generation Next. I believe I know why. The older generations are hoping we will mindlessly assume our place as the “next” in line. That way, they won’t have to explain why my generation has had to experience so much pain and heartache. “What heartache?” you say. “Don’t you know you have grown up in a time of great prosperity?” Yeah, we know that. Believe me, it has been drilled into our heads since birth. Unfortunately, the pain and hurt I speak of can’t be reconciled with money. You have tried for years to buy us happiness, but it is only temporary. Money isn’t the answer, and it is time for people to begin admitting their guilt for failing my generation. I will admit that I wasn’t planning to write this. I was going to tuck it away in some corner of my mind and fall victim to your whole “next” mentality.
But after the Massacre in Littleton, CO, I realize that as a member of this generation that kills without remorse, I had a duty to challenge all of my elders to explain why they have allowed things to become so bad. Let me tell you this: These questions don’t represent only me but a Whole generation that is struggling to grow up and make sense of this world. We all have questions; we all want explanations. People may label us Generation Next, but we are more appropriately Generation “Why?”
“Why did most of you lie when you made the vow of ’til death do us part’?” “Why do you fool yourselves into believing that divorce really is better for the kids in the long run?” “Why do so many of you divorced parents spend more time with your new boyfriend or girlfriend than with your own children?”
“Why did you ever fall victim to the notion that kids are just as well off being raised by a complete stranger at a daycare center than by their own mother or father?” “Why do you look down on parents who decide to quit work and stay home to raise their children?” “Why does the television do the most talking at family meals?” “Why is work more important than your own family?” “Why is money regarded as more important than relationships?”
“Why is ‘quality time’ generally no longer than a five-to-10-minute conversation each day?” “Why do you try to make up for the lack of time you spend with us by giving us more and more material objects that we really don’t need?” “Why does your work (in the form of a cell Phone, laptop computer, etc.), always come with us on vacations?”
“Why have you neglected to teach us values and morals?” “Why haven’t you lived moral lives that we could model our own after?” “Why isn’t religion one of the most important words in our household?” “Why do you play God when it comes to abortion?” “Why don’t you have enough faith in us to teach us abstinence rather than safe sex?” “Why do you allow us to watch violent movies but expect us to maintain some type of childlike innocence?” “Why do you allow us to spend unlimited amounts of time on the Internet, but still are shocked about our knowledge of how to build bombs?” “Why are you so afraid to tell us ‘no’ sometimes?” “Why is it so hard for you to realize that school shootings, and other violent juvenile behavior, result from a lack of your attention more than anything else?” Call us Generation Next if you want to, but I think you will be surprised at how we will fail to fit into your neat little category. These questions should, and will, be asked of the generations that have failed us. Written by Marcy Musgrave, a junior at Texas A&M University.
It’s time to take responsibility. America’s sins are finding them out (Numbers 32:23).
