"Freedom is never more than one generation
away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our
children in the bloodstream. It must be fought
for, protected, and handed on for them to do the
same, or one day we will spend our sunset years
telling our children and our children’s children
what it was once like in the United States,
where men were free."
—President Ronald W. Reagan
One of my greatest burdens and desires as a father is for my
eight-year-old son to grow up honoring God with his life,
knowing right from wrong, and acting on that knowledge. I
am far more interested in his character than I am in which college
he attends or his profession. I am sure that I am not alone.
In fact, if you are reading these words, you too must possess
that same burden and sense of obligation that I do, to
pass on the same truths that have guided the best parts of your
life to your children, so that they may know the truth, and that
their lives will glorify God.
During most of American history, when a biblical worldview
prevailed, much of the information in this book was
common knowledge, even among non-Christians. But we live
in a day where “good has become evil and evil good,” where
“everyone does what is right in his own eyes.” A time when
quoting God’s Word in public can literally get you arrested
for a “hate crime.”
And that is precisely why I am writing this book—to arm
you, the parent, with what I believe to be among the most important
biblical truths that we can pass on to the next generation,
the stuff that they are never going to learn in most
schools, from the media, and sadly, in many churches.
These are the types of things they must understand and
apply if they have any hope of living a life of faith in an increasingly
dark cultural and spiritual climate, the most important
truths that I would share with my son if I were on my deathbed.
My sincere hope and prayer is that Christian parents share
this politically incorrect book with their children so that the
next generation may be adequately prepared to defend biblical
truth for the advancement of the Gospel and biblical truth
in general—the only real antidote for what really ails America
and the rest of the world.
