5 44 HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME V-4 N-12 - We see this age that we're living in. It's one of the grandest ages of all ages. This Laodicea Church Age is the grandest of all the church ages, because it's the ending of time and the blending of eternity. And then, it's the greatest sinful age.

14 Home Sweet Home Fearing the Lord will result in cleansing the home of: A PLACE OF LEARNING Television Sensual material ~ Woman's Weekly Wrong Music Occult Objects

15 133 JUST.ONE.MORE.TIME. V-9 N-8 You fathers, you mothers, are you ready to establish an altar in your house, and take that television out? Are you ready to take that deck of cards off the table? Them comic books that your children's reading, preparing their little mind for a blast that the Devil's going to give them. Are you ready to establish the old family altar again? Or do you just want to continue on the way you are?

16 Home Sweet Home It establishes the practice of tolerating evil to enjoy something good. Consequences From Television/DvD 1Co 5:6b, Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Its amusement lowers the resistance to evil. Pr 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.

17 Home Sweet Home It provides a constant access to the world's system and its false concepts. Consequences From Television/DvD Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. It deadens your conscience by providing comparison with lower morality. Mt 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

18 Home Sweet Home It allows your children to relate to evil individuals who you otherwise wouldn't even let in your home. Consequences From Television/DvD Pr 13:20 He that walketh with wise [men] shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. It devours one of the most precious resources we have - time. It devours one of the most precious resources we have - time. Ps 90:12 So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.

19 Home Sweet Home It stifles creativity by deadening their imagination. Consequences From Television/DvD Pr 13:20 He that walketh with wise [men] shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. It ultimately makes you an enemy of God. Jas 4:4b, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

20 E-45 CALLING.JESUS.ON.THE.SCENE John might have said something like this, he said, "You know, when I was a little boy, we lived down by Jericho. I remember my Jewish mother used to rock me to sleep in the afternoon, take my afternoon nap. I used to look up in her eyes and she'd tell me Bible stories." And you know, that's a good thing for any mother to do to her child. Bring up a child in the way it should go. It would be better than to turn on a television to watch some of these here things that goes on on the television, It'd be better off if you read him a Bible story, 'cause it's impressing his little mind.

21 Supplies the sense of right & wrong Mind Spirit 1) God given sense of right & wrong 2) Fear of rejection & accountability 3) Man's primary sense of shame Moral Conscience Supplies the standards of right & wrong 1) Warns when about to do wrong 2) Accuses when wrong is done ~ Guilt 5) Trainable Part 3) Prompts to do right 4) Confirms when right is done ~ Approval Heart Soul Primary Conscience

22 E-29 GOD.KEEPS.HIS.WORD I'd rather have an old home with no rug on the floor, and with a little old iron bedstead setting there, and an old dresser somewhere, or whatever, and a little old kitchen table made out of boxes with a sign hanging on it, "God bless our home" than all the fine homes in the world, your pinups and nonsense that you have today, and a Bible laying on the table instead of all these old love story magazines and things laying around of dirt, and filth, and lust, and everything else to breed into the children. How can you expect anything else but a bunch of infidels and agnostics to answer out. That's true, friends.

23 Bring up a child in the way that it should go, teaching him on the Word of God. Abraham Lincoln, until he was a grown man, had two books: One of them was the Bible and the other was the Foxe "Book of the Martyrs." And he studied that so hard, he read; he concentrated on that. That's what developed that kind of a character that Abraham Lincoln was.

24 Ps 106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

25 E-16 ELISHA.THE.PROPHET -- JEFF.IN Now, if the picture of a ship will impress boys to become Navy man, sailors of the sea, what ought the picture of the Lord Jesus Christ do? See? Always have the right thing before your children. "Bring up a child in the way that it should go." See. Bring it up and teach it right. It'll, certainly, won't depart from it.

29 46 GOD'S.GIFTS.ALWYS.FIND - V-6 N I notice some people setting right here now that's got a little grandson, and his name is... the one little boy's a sweetest, pleasant little fellow; and the other one is Ricky, and that's what he is. You just watch him, his nature's just like that. I said to some of his grandparents, or someone, I said, "Tell the mother change the name of that boy, just change that name over and watch what happens to the kid." See, you people don't want to believe that. We think we've lived too long for that. If there isn't something in a name, then why as long as Jacob was called Jacob, which means "supplanter, deceiver," that's what he was?

30 Home Sweet Home 4) Biographies of great Christians A PLACE OF LEARNING Replace objects of destruction with items of reinforcement of Godly wisdom and character. 3) Christian Classics 5) Good Music 6) Family Activities, Saturday Nights.
