We live in a culture that bombards us with “truths” that are not in line with the biblical worldview. Public schools teach children that humans and living creatures are products of evolution. Television shows and books tout postmodern messages that emphasize individual feelings and subjective experiences as truths.
With a culture as described above, children are more likely to abandon Christianity. In fact, according to a 2016 study by the Public Religion Research Institute, nearly four in ten young adults, ages 18-29, are religiously unaffiliated. Additionally, young adults today are about four times more likely to identify as religiously unaffiliated compared to young adults in the previous generation. These statistics are concerning as they show that young people are more likely to leave the faith in this day and age than in previous generations. In an environment where biblical truths are replaced with other worldviews, children, who are trying to understand the world, are easily swayed by the culture.
The Ambassadors Forum is passionate about equipping Christians of all ages to discern biblical truths and defend their faith in Christian apologetics. With the pandemic forcing children to be at home, parents have the unique apologetics opportunity to train their kids to discern and follow biblical truths in their homes. This month’s Friday Forum, hosted by the Ambassadors Forum, is “Equipping Our Children to Discern and Follow Truth.” Elizabeth Urbanowicz, founder of the Foundation Comparative Worldview Curriculum, will be speaking at this event where she will discuss strategies for implementing truth-education in the home. If you are a parent with young children, expecting parent, or even someone interested in engaging with the youth, this event is for you.
