In the first half of the twentieth century, parents in Germany gave their children over to a crazed, demented maniac who convinced them that his philosophy of an elite culture would dominate the world and save it from other evil influences. The results are historically documented with the genocide of millions of people who did not fit his definition. The quote by Adolf Hitler is true, and he is not the first to offer this idea.
We believe not learning from Hitler can be as destructive as Hitler himself. Santayana illustrated this idea best when he said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
The other quote on the billboard came from the Wisdom Literature of the Bible found in Proverbs, “Train a child in the way they should go, and they will not depart from it.”
In the last half of the twentieth century, parents in America have bought into philosophies that are equally destructive as Hitler’s, though maybe not as obvious. We believe the Bible holds the ultimate wisdom which guides us away from such deceptive and damaging ideologies. The question for you as a reader and the parents of this generation of children is, “Who is influencing your children?”
The goal and focus of Life-Savers Ministries is to give our children the hope and help that is found through faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord…” Psalm 127:3
