Recently I had the chance to talk to a group of white kids. I was taken aback by what I observed.
Despite knowing in my mind what America is like for kids now, I don’t actually experience it often. We don’t send our kids to public schools, so they don’t come home talking about premarital sex or atheism. They go to a movie theater less than once a year, so they have no idea what sensual and horrific things pass for entertainment. My kids measure their video game time in minutes, not hours, and they don’t game with strangers around the world. They read books, see shows, and listen to music that has first been screened by me or my wife, and when they have questions about what they come across they are encouraged to talk to us about it. They take active roles during our family worship time. I’ve been struck lately by the intelligence of their questions about God lately — a sign that they’re actually paying attention and taking ownership of their faith for themselves, praise God. I didn’t grow up that way. I feel privileged to be a part of the maturity process for these kids God has entrusted to my wife and me. They are light years ahead of where I was.
Which is why when I started talking to a kid the same age as one of mine, and I had no idea whether I was talking to a boy or a girl, I was heartbroken. The kid was bright enough for an average white kid. But Lord have mercy, what must be going on in that child’s life, or home, to produce such an androgynous result? No one aware of the cultural rot that is postmodern America would be surprised to learn that this child was also ill-kempt and physically out of shape. I remember what it was like to be an awkward kid, and I know what it is like to be a parent without loads of cash for nice clothes, so I’m not condemning the kid or the parent(s). But results matter.
When a kid has no solid gender identity, little sense of hygiene and grooming, and no skills in securing his or her own physical health, something is wrong. The people in that kid’s life are setting him or her up for needless misery.
For such people there can only be one appropriate response: compassionate correction.
The child is not a helpless product of his environment. The child is a rational, moral agent with an immortal soul, and must be treated as such. The individual child is dependent on his elders in society, but at some stage in each child’s life the kid starts to more or less assert his will to self-governance. When done poorly, we call this the terrible two’s, teenage rebellion, and other such things. When done well, we call this maturity, growing up, and becoming a man. As such, each child should be told that he has the responsibility to make right choices. The child has the responsibility to discern what information amounts to good advice, and which is misleading, illogical, and ungodly. Clearly, even a bright child needs guidance and instruction to be able to know how to assess that information and make those choices, but nonetheless the child has to make those choices and accept, or reject, those sources of data.
Pastors, teachers and other non-family authority figures should do the opposite of what the culture encourages, and actually hold the child to standards of Christian morality and common sense instead of rewarding self-delusions, screen addiction, narcissism, promiscuity, and social justice activism.
Parents should take a firm hold of their children and refuse to let them slip into the cesspool in which their own sinful natures want to wallow. Left to his own devices, a child will prefer folly. That is why biblical instruction, discipline, love, forgiveness, patience, encouragement, grace, laughter, and a zeal for godly living must be imparted by the parent(s) to the child. No one has a guarantee that his child will turn out a certain way, but this provides the best possible chance that the child will have a solid sense of who he is in Christ, make right choices, and live a healthy, productive life to the glory of God.
As pro-white Christians, we must attend to the welfare of the littlest ones Christ came to save. The anti-white, pro-gay, pro-trans, pro-feminist world is drawing them to an eternity of rot and misery. We can do so much better. Let’s do what we can for the little ones in our lives.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:4-6)
