My children are something that I keep near and dear to my heart
They are a part of me, and I see God's blessing in their eyes every night when I smooch and pray with them.
I cannot imagine what it would be like if, in 10 years or so from now, they choose to attend services and believe a false teacher.
If I were to find out that a Sunday school teacher was being allowed to teach heresy, that would be the end of it!
Yes my children are little now, and moving out of a church wouldn't leave a huge mark on them, BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER!
I need to remember that I am the parent, and until they turn 18 it is up to me to protect my child against false teachers and hypocrosy.
Yes, they have friends there, but you know what??
I thought I had friends too
But when I left, the majority of them turned their backs on me and never even spoke to me after I had run away.
I was truly by myself.
I have made a promise to God and to myself and my children, that I will protect them to the best of my God-given ability.
I would rather protect them now,while I still can, than to lose them forever to a belief system that is built on a foundation of nothing but sand.
If we choose to pull our children from a place that is not teaching and living the Bible, the true friends that they have made will last forever.
