Gospel Transformation and Renewal
The LORD promised to transform and renew His people, and we know that this transformation and renewal are worked out through the provisions of the gospel.
SACH 15: Shepherding Children Ages 6-12
Parents of school age children are faced with new challenges and must build upon the earlier lessons of being a person under authority. One of the primary focuses during these years is character development. A child must be learning how to respond to situations in life with biblical wisdom (trust and obedience toward God). His conscience must be developed as the reasoning factor of the soul, and parents must appeal to the conscience in order to help him develop the capacity to reason to right conclusions using the Scriptures as his guide.
It is obvious that character development is not taught through the same methods as teaching a toddler to be under authority… Spanking works well to teach younger children to obey, but it is not effective at teaching a 12 year old to be wise. As children grow, we must address the heart using godly communication, a clear appeal to their conscience, and an appropriate application of corrective discipline where necessary.
LORD of All The Nations
God’s command that there be no other gods before Him applies to all
peoples of all nations, and He will purify the world and His people of all these so-called gods and their worshippers.
SACH Session 14 – Shepherding Children Ages 0-5
In the early years of childhood, children go through an immense amount of changes. During these early years, it is the responsibility of parents to teach their children how to live under authority by instructing and correcting them. They must teach them the concepts of living in the realm of blessing and warning of the consequences of sin. The means of correction involve both words and physical discipline. The use of the rod in physical discipline must be done with the goal of the restoration and not an outlet of anger or retribution.

The Adultery of Syncretism
God is a rightly jealous God and will rightly pour out His wrath upon all who refuse to turn and follow Him alone and worship Him alone.
