Will Your Children Go to Jail?

About a third of the U.S. Population is, or has been, incarcerated, or is on parole.

A third.

I listened while a prison missionary told that terrifying statistic. I watched with mouth agape, a film showing baptisms of people in handcuffs. The joy of new life in Christ was obvious on their faces.

The prisons make up the fastest-growing portion of the Church in our country, if you count conversions.

The missionary told us of inmates who had come to Christ, finished their sentences, and returned to become missionaries to prisons, themselves, leading hundreds to life in Christ.

At last, our speaker told us of one inmate, a serial killer who had finally come to life in Christ and had gone on to lead many fellow inmates to Christ. If I told you his name, you would gasp. He was one of the top-name killers in our country, not long ago.

I say “was” because he, himself, was murdered by an inmate, about 4 years ago. His story, though, has direct relevance to us.

While this man was in prison, his dad sent him some Creation science materials. Reading these papers and books led him to realize Jesus is Lord, and to give his life over to Him.

In a nationally televised interview, he said he always thought evolutionists were right, that there is no God. If we all come from slime and return to it, he reasoned, he saw no point in having laws, no way of defining right and wrong. If what we do does not matter to any higher authority, then it is of no consequence, and killing is not wrong.

Therefore, he killed.

This was correct reasoning, by the way.

The Existence of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob IS the only reason to do right; His Word, the only definition of right.

You know, Hitler thought the same way.

So did Madame guillotine.

Everyone agrees.

Think about it awhile.

Keep your babies at home. Keep them out of the prisons built for children, the miniature unarmed police states that teach evolution.

Teach them the truth, yourself.

Never quit.

  1. It’s no wonder our national debt is growing. We have to pay to feed them, cloth them, house them, plus give them cable! I pray something brings about a change in our nation. This should spur us on to better parenting.

  2. There’s another huge prison we don’t really see or think of–the prison of drugs. We pay those people, too, to have phones, food, clothing, medicine, etc.

    Do you know the story of “Yertle the Turtle”?
