“Five Reasons Christian Parents ‘Lose’ Their Children?”
Writing for Red Letter Christians, Yoholo Hoyt writes about the anxiety many Christian parents experience as their children are growing up. Will they remain true to the faith of their parents or will they wander off and follow other paths? Although these parents know and quote the teaching of Proverbs 22:6 (“Start children off in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” TNIV), there is still a fear, especially among evangelical parents, that peer relationships, college, or just plain life will cause them to reject what their parents hold dear. Hoyt has given much thought to this concern and lists five reasons children may reject their parents’ expression of Christianity.
