WHERE ARE THE SHEPHERDS?

I am heartsick this morning. I don’t know what it will take for Christians to wake-up. In a society that bends over backwards to make sure that our children have everything they need, why is it that we have so neglected the souls of our children?

Everything we own will someday belong to another. The only thing that has any significant value is the soul of another human being.

What is the soul? We throw that term around a lot but how many of us really understand what the soul is? The soul is made up of three parts.

  • The mind---our ability to think.
  • Our emotions---the ability to “feel” or empathize
  • Our will---the ability to choose.

According to Christian teachings it is the part of a human being that is immortal, the part that will never die. Leaving this earthly body is not the end of life. It is merely a transition from one realm to another. What is that realm called? We Christians are taught that there is a heaven and a hell. When we leave this body we will spend eternity in one of those two places.

Upon death, our soul leaves our body. That is why when speaking of death we use terms like passed on, left this world, earthly departure, or went to be with the Lord. Most Americans believe that there is life after death, that the soul -- the ability to think, to choose, and to emote -- lives on.

“I know he is up there looking down on us.” You hear that a lot after a loved one dies, an expression of the belief that the soul never really dies. How do we know who is really “up there”?

For centuries pastors have been known as “shepherds of the soul.” They have been given the awesome responsibility to guide the souls of their flock unto the safety of heaven. That is what pastors do; protect their sheep against ravenous wolves, a spiritual guide if you will, to direct their flock to heaven.

Sadly, many have lost their purpose. Today much of what we hear from the pulpits of America is nothing more than “Humanism Lite,” a recipe on how to make this life better, rather than a guide to eternal life. You know the refrain, “God wants to make you healthy, wealthy, and happy…..”

Most shepherds have lost sight of eternity.

The battle that rages before us is not Republican against Democrat, pro-life/pro death, liberal/conservative, pro-homosexual/anti-homosexual, pro-war/anti-war, creation/evolution, or Second Amendment/gun control.

The battle is heaven or hell and the souls of our children.

We are in a battle. Why won’t we act like it? I am reminded of what former Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes once said. “I’ve never seen a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face.” The war for souls is raging and we want to smile our way through the battle.

Look at this video on the indoctrination of our children into homosexuality. It is 10 minutes long and it is disturbing. If that still isn’t enough, take 7 minutes and watch the other one too. The battle is not over homosexuality. It is over souls. Where are the shepherds, those who will lay down their life for the children? Remember, the soul is the mind, the will, and the emotions. Look in the eyes of these precious children and see how the souls are being destroyed?

Listen, folks. God calls homosexuality an abomination. If you have a problem with it, take it up with God. I am merely pointing out His position. How can we call ourselves Christian if we don’t agree with our Lord?

Souls are at risk…for eternity. It is time to stop smiling and start defending.

The government schools are not merely giving a bad education; they are leading souls to hell. Sounds radical, doesn’t it? But it is the Truth. Read what the Polish Prime Minister had to say about teaching homosexuality in Polish public schools. Why is American leadership silent?

Christians, we are losing our kids. Because of the indoctrination in our schools, our Christian kids no longer think like Christians. They are simply little Humanists who know Jesus. “Why do you call me Lord but don't do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46.

“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 18:6

It is not about homosexuality, it is about souls. It is not about this world, it is about the next one.

Look at this video. It was produced by the Inglewood School District in conjunction with the Inglewood police in 1959. It shows what American used to believe about homosexuality. Although it seems a bit archaic, it speaks of a different time, a time when our schools cared about souls, about right and wrong, good and evil, God and the Devil. These were the values we taught to our kids, because the shepherds demanded it.

Today our children are indoctrinated in our government schools. They are taught to accept what God tells them to abhor. Few speak out; few are concerned for the souls of the children.

The massacre at Virginia Tech brought it home to me. Many spoke of the “tragedy” of the slaughter. It is a tragedy, but not in the way many of us view it. Without sounding calloused, the thing that should break our heart is not that so many died, but that so many died apart from Jesus. Most had been indoctrinated into tolerance, diversity, multi-culturalism, and environmentalism. Today they are no longer part of this world. Pardon the pun, but what they learned here on earth, as my grandpa used to say, “Ain’t worth a hoot in hell.”

Many are in hell and you can bet they aren’t hootin’! I’m sorry if it seems harsh. That is what the Bible teaches. That is what I believe. Forever is a long time.

"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28.

We are failing our children and our Lord.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27.

It is not about your best life now; it is about your best life later. Souls are at risk. Our schools have become the very Synagogues of Satan, focusing on the flesh and ignoring the soul.

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11.

Bow your knee now, or bow your knee later. We need to tell our children that.

Parents are feeding their children to the lions. Why won’t the shepherds tell their flock to run from the government schools?
