Atheist: I Was Raised Christian

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
 
It’s true that many anti-God thinkers claim they grew up as Christians. However, almost all of them deny having any experience of knowing Christ or of Christ leading them, so how could they ever have the experience of knowing that He exists because they know Him. They even deny that such an experience is possible. Could someone deeply and meaningfully experience the living Christ in this way and then deny His existence? Some claim they did know Him but now deny Him. That’s difficult to believe. More likely, they learned manners, theologies, and emotions, but they never learned to hear God’s voice and to respond in submission to the Holy Spirit.

Teach the Children

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
Unfortunately, some parents never get around to teaching their children to know Christ, and this lack of teaching means that many children never learn to abide in His leading, teaching, correction, and progressive purification. In other words, many children never learn to walk in the Spirit. Perhaps the children never learn because many parents never walk in the Spirit and never keep step with the Spirit themselves.

Children Need Two Types of Learning

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
Ephesians 6:4 speaks of two forms of training. One is nouthesia, which is “putting in mind.” What does God want the children to have in their minds? God wants them to acknowledge Him, and He’ll be there to guide if they’re willing to acknowledge Him, that is, hold Him in their knowledge. The second form of training is paideia, which is action. To understand this paideia action, we must remember that works come by grace through faith, so children need to learn how to acknowledge God’s leading and how to respond in submission. They need to learn how to yield to the Holy Spirit, so God does His works through them.

What If Children Knew How to Listen to God?

Teach your children to know Jesus. Teach them to be led by the Holy Spirit and to reject the influence of the world, the devil, and their own fallen emotions and mind.
 
<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
From the standpoint of outcomes, parents would find their role easier if God’s love was shed abroad in the children’s hearts by the Holy Ghost, wouldn’t they? And parents would find their role easier if the children were walking in the Spirit, wouldn’t they? So why not teach them how to know Jesus? If they’re taught to seek Jesus Christ at the youngest age, they’re much more likely to follow Christ as teenagers and as adults. If they don’t follow Christ at a young age, parents will find it difficult to get their interest when they enter their teen years.

Daily Bible Reading

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
Parents can read Scripture to their children and teach them to listen to Christ through every means mentioned in Scripture. Read First Corinthians twelve, First Corinthians fourteen, Romans one, and the entire Bible. Daily Scripture reading is extremely important to children, so take the opportunity to read to them until they can read to you.

Children Need

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
Children need to learn the peace and joy of hearing the voice of Jesus Christ speaking to them through Scripture. They need to experience the Holy Spirit applying Scripture to their current problems and situations in a relevant way. Every day, parents can teach their children how to walk in the Spirit and not according to the flesh. They can teach children how to listen to the Holy Spirit as He speaks to them through Scripture. That is, parents can show children how Christ speaks to them, through Scripture, about right and wrong. Parents can tell their children how the Holy Spirit will bring Scripture to their remembrance when their fleshly nature is trying to draw them into doing something wrong. Through Scripture, parents can teach their children how to detect a false prophet or a false teacher. They can teach them to pray for discernment to find God’s interpretation of Scripture amid all the various voices who claim to have the correct interpretation.

Children Need to Know Christ Personally

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
Parents are responsible for teaching, encouraging, and building up their own children before witnessing to anyone else. Parents may focus on teaching doctrine, morals, ethics, forms, rituals, or other less important truths. When children are too young to understand, parents put children under a law. But that’s a temporary measure to keep the children safe. The goal isn’t a law or God’s Law, and learning speculative theories or theologies isn’t vital to the children’s walk with God either. Nor do they need to learn loyalty to an organization.
 
Instead, children need to learn to know Jesus. That is, they need to learn how to go to Jesus in every moment and listen to Him, and as part of this, they need the moment-by-moment training and instruction of the Lord.

Trying To Reason Without Revelation

True Premise = Revelation

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>

When compared, God’s utterance in 1 Peter 3:15 confirms and elaborates on what God says through 1 Corinthians 1:17-25. In these cases, He commands us to have a reasonable response, but not human reasoning without divine revelation since we’ve already discovered that human reason without divine revelation can’t be rational. It can’t be sound because if we reason without divine revelation, we’ll be irrational.

We already know why. It’s because we need a true premise to reason rationally, and we can only have a true premise by revelation. If we try to reason without revelation, we root our reasoning in made-up stuff, and basing statements on made-up stuff isn’t rational. Therefore, if we let God guide our thoughts and communications, He’ll make our reasoning sane, but without God, there’s no sanity.

We Must Grow Up In Christ

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
If we’re going to obey 1 Peter 3:15, we must “purify the Lord God in our hearts,” but purification is a progressive process. Through Scripture, God speaks of purification in 1 Peter 1:7, “so that the authenticity of your faith–more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation [apokalupsis, which means the removal of the veil] of Jesus Christ.” And since God’s will goes against our sinful nature, it’s like fire refining the gold—some refinements and purifications requiring more heat than others. Gold is symbolic of deity, which is Christ in us. This refining fire removes the veil that hides Christ in us.
 
We can look into this purification and this clarity of vision using an analogy. If we fill a clear water glass with dirt, we can’t see through the glass. But if we start adding clear water, the water begins to wash the dirt out of the glass, and soon, instead of pure dirt, we have muddy water. However, we still can’t see through the muddy water. Though it’s true that some light comes through, there’s no clarity of vision. The point is that we can eventually remove all the mud by adding water. On the other hand, if we add mud instead of water, we make progress backward away from clarity.

Holiness is and Important Part of the Gospel

Obviously, we don’t save ourselves. We can’t become holy by self-effort. However, we can submit to the Holy Spirit and let Him work. That is, we can stop fighting against the Holy Spirit and His working in our lives. Then, He transforms us from glory to glory.
 
<quote from Real Faith & Reason> “Commit your works to the LORD, and your thoughts shall be established.” (Proverbs 16:3 American King James Version) So God tells us to sanctify (purify) the Lord God in our hearts. “Hearts,” as the word appears here [in 1 Peter 3:15], doesn’t refer to the physical organ that pumps blood through our bodies, but rather, it speaks of our innermost beings. “For out of the heart are the issues of life.” “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify [purify] you completely, and may your entire spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23 Berean Study Bible) The word that’s translated as “soul,” here is also translated “heart,” “mind,” or “life” in other verses. And Paul was in travail as the Holy Spirit was forming Christ in the hearts of the Galatians. (Galatians 4:19) Scripture speaks of Christ in us, which is the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27) But each of us also has a fallen, carnal, brute-beast mind that causes us to make mistakes and draws us into temptation. That means there’s need for purification, but what are we purifying? As the Scripture says, we purify the Lord God in our hearts, but isn’t He pure already? Of course He’s pure. However, we aren’t pure because each of us has an impure sinful nature, and God is serious about overcoming our sinful natures. He’s our wisdom, righteousness, holiness, and freedom from sin. We purify Him in our hearts, and purification gives clarity and discernment. Purification defines the line between God’s revelation and the flesh’s lying illusions. In essence, purification removes the fleshly sarx carnal nature. Purification is the removal of the fleshly veil. </end quote> #RealFaith&Reason Have you read this FREE book yet? “Real Faith & Reason” gives the absolutely certain proof of the Bible and the God of the Bible and shows how you can have real faith.
