"America is involved in a "war on children" that begins in the womb and lasts through the toddler, teen and tween years, pastor John MacArthur said Sunday during the first sermon in a series on childrearing...It is more important than ever, he added, for Christian parents to raise their children "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."...MacArthur said abortion has resulted in 62.5 million babies "slaughtered in the womb" since Roe v. Wade. He also mentioned the negative impact of divorce and infidelity on children.
But even if a child makes it to birth, he or she will face an onslaught of unbiblical teaching in the world, MacArthur said.
"It is likely that the child will be sent to a public school and come under the influence of those whose agenda is anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Scripture," he said. "As you know, our country [and] the politicians who lead it are making laws that are devastating to children under the pressure of sexual freedom, homosexuality, transgenderism. The desire is to make that normal and to punish people who speak against it with laws in the category of hate speech. The lies of systemic racism and the race hustlers dominate the ideologies of universities and even churches. "We're gonna have to answer to [God] too, for the little ones he gives us," MacArthur said. "When they arrive, they are [H]is. And our life commitment is to make sure that as they grow and we influence them, they come to faith in Christ, right? That's raising your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."
