The Centrality of the Home

In light of my recent post on the separation of families, I couldn’t go on without sharing this powerful message on the centrality of the home and the value of children and incorporating them into our life. If you haven’t heard of Voddie Baucham, Jr., than you need to look into getting a copy of his book titled, Family Driven Faith (thanks Julie for reminding me of this resource). We haven’t read it yet, but I know it will be good after hearing this sermon.

In a message State Director of Evangelism, Don Cass called “Truly Prophetic,” Voddie Baucham set the auditorium ablaze. The challenge he issued cut straight to the heart of the crisis in contemporary Evangelicalism.

Children are despised in our culture…Christianity in America is dying one home at a time as we are losing our children at a rate of 75% by the end of their freshman year in college! This statistic is staggering…how can we make this change? Who’s job is it to raise your children? Our current strategy for discipling our children is not working…

Listen to it here.

    I have recently listened to this and had my husband listen to it as well. It was definitely eye-opening!

    The sermon link is no longer active. What is the sermon title? I can find it then :)

    An excellent listen, and a great read- I so highly recommend Voddie Baucham’s material! My husband and I were just re-listening to one of his speaking CD’s last night, and as always, we were challenged and encouraged! If you ever get the chance, he’s even better in person!

    Thanks for posting this! I really want to get that book (FDF) too! I am saddened by the way that children are looked down upon in today’s world. I am pregnant with my third and have gotten some terrible reactions! Even when we were pregnant with #2 some people asked us if we were happy about it and acted like we were crazy. Now that we are having our 3rd (and only 21 months between all the kids) one lady acted like I had told her I had cancer! Another woman asked me if my 2 year old was in school and implied that she should be as soon as she turns 3. At 2 years old!Our world is not friendly towards children!
