3 Common Traits of Youth Who Don’t Leave the Church – FaithIt.com

3 Common Traits of Youth Who Don’t Leave the Church – FaithIt.com

I've said these numbers before, but I'll say them again:

65-85 % of children raised in Christian homes backslide by their first year of college.

96 % of children who graduate from homeschool stay in the same religion as their parents.

If you take away sunday school and youth group, that number goes up to very nearly 100%

The things this article says to do to keep you kids in church are immensely easier to do in homeschool and in a church without a youth group or Sunday School.

If you want your kids to go to heaven, you have to raise them God's way. Yes, some kids can go to public school and still stay in church, but it is increasingly rare. Public school is just not the way to "bring them up in the culture and education of the Lord." Ephesians 6.

Raise your kids like the world does and you will have worldy kids.

Raise them like God says and you will have Goly kids.

It's that simple

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
