Deuteronomy 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
Satan wants nothing more than to turn your children from following after and serving God. If you are not careful, you will not protect them sufficiently or correctly. This verse is a warning from God to His people. The Israelites were to utterly destroy everyone and everything that might turn the hearts of their children from God to idols. They were not to be friends. They were not to show mercy. They were not to be politically correct. They were not to have friendships and marriages with people that worshipped other gods. If they did the hearts of their children would turn from God.
How often we laugh at separation. We think that the preacher exaggerated in his message. We believe that it is crazy to be a fanatic. We are taught to be tolerant and accepting of others and their beliefs. Please read this passage carefully. You decide what God is saying.
This is not me trying to get you to do anything. This is me calling your attention to the Bible. You are responsible for your children. You decide.
