Starved for the Word

Before the modernists tore down the altars in our churches,
we had torn down the altars in our homes.

Before worldly indifference paralyzed our churches,
it had paralyzed our homes.

Before the pastors denied the Word of God in the churches,
parents had denied the Word of God access in their home life...

Every night thousands of children are put to bed
starved for the Word of God,

Having received nothing of God's Word
from their parents that day,

Robbed of the only bread
that can give them strength and wisdom
to overcome all the wiles of the devil.

-Norman V. Williams, Baptist preacher 1951

Are you encouraged here?

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a
blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you are interested feel free to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by
the way!

Feel free to surf to my website - lqp

This is true. "If my people" is talking about God's people -- today, the church people. We the church need to repent, and perhaps God will heal our land. We, that is, some of us church people (myself included) have become so desensitized to everything.

A spot-on commentary...and doubly so, considering it was written in 1951! I am in my 50s and often wonder how my denomination, community, and country were so easily hijacked. (I no longer recognize any of them compared to what I experienced as a child.) Of course, it all started at home. So convicting, yet encouraging, to not give up for the sake of future generations. Thx for posting.
