Kid nation and the gospel
I have been watching kid nation on cbs tv though i have some problems with it- i learned something from the show which is this:
We reformed sometimes overemphasize we are all born sinners with our young people and chlidren:
as it is written: (Q) "None is righteous, no, not one; 11no one understands; no one seeks for God.12All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one."13(R) "Their throat is(S) an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive."(T) "The venom of asps is under their lips." 14(U) "Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness."15(V) "Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16in their paths are ruin and misery,17and(W) the way of peace they have not known." 18(X) "There is no fear of God before their eyes."(romans 3:10-18)
that they sin daily. Yet we forget they too are co-image bearers of God:
26Then God said,(A) "Let us make man[a] in our image,(B) after our likeness. And(C) let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."(gen 1:26)
so as co image bearers we should encourage,mentor,lead,teach the young people and children to attempt great things from embracing Christ as their Lord and savior to attempting great things for God.
