When our kids choose to believe differently than us

It is so hard watching your grown children choose to believe differently. I watch as one has completely walked away and another is walking closely with the Lord. Another has one foot in the world and one in the Kingdom of God, another has taken a little bit of truth and accepted untruth mixed in as The Truth without really testing it against scripture. I watch this and I want to grab them and bring them to safety, but the time for me to do that is over. I tried this weekend to talk with one of my darling children about what she is taking as truth as far as the church goes but she already knows what I’m going to say and was ready with all the reasons I was wrong, but not once did she have scripture to back up why she was right. She had some valid points, the church today is not what it should be. We are more of a business than a ministry in many ways. But to throw out the church altogether, to choose to belittle the church and all that it is to the very people who are called to minister in that setting…seemed rather harsh to me. In the new testament they were organized, they had leadership and accountability. The way she is talking about there isn’t any accountability, I am bothered because, yes she has always been stable in her walk with the Lord but right now she is dangerously close to the edge and thinks that she is safely away. I told her I didn’t have any concerns about her walk with the Lord earlier in the conversation, but after our talk I am now very concerned. I just don’t know how to talk to her about this. I guess it is time for me to do some warfare over my children! Compromise is not an option in our walk with Jesus, we can compromise unimportant things but not the Word of God, not the principles in His Word for our life. The enemy is out to destroy all those he can. We are all in danger of his deception because there is always enough truth in what he tells us that it is easy for us to swallow if we are not careful. We need each other in these last days, we need the accountability that meeting together regularly gives us. We need to stay connected to one another. We need to be in The Word of God daily, communing in prayer daily, depending on the Holy Spirit to alert you to deception. I am a warrior In Prayer and I am putting the enemy on Notice right here and now that I won’t stand idly by while he deceives my children! I will take you on in the Spirit Realm! I will make you wish you had Never touched my family! I will not go down easily, I will not accept defeat, and I will not lose even One of my children to the enemy! I come in the Authority and strength of Jesus Christ and His shed Blood that paid for our Salvation! I know that I have prayer warriors that will and are fighting right alongside me. This is not the time for complacency. We must be fully awake and fully armed! Jesus is coming Soon and we have a mission to reach as many as we can. And I have a mission to take my children back from the enemy…on my knees in the Spirit Realm!
