In these last days there is a great falling away from Biblical Christianity. This may be seen within the professing Church as well as in our society in general. Children are being raised and many grow up are wild, unruly, and evil. I'm not talking about children from lost families. I'm talking about children from with the professing church. I personally have seen several children go wild and astray from God. I've seen them get into fornication, drugs, and rebellion with no concern about God and the Bible. I've also seen several parents of such children over the years and have come to a few conclusions.

In this article we will cover several ways for parents to raise a rebellious child that will go far from God. This is a sad testimony and it is just one more sign of the end of the age and the return of the Lord Jesus. When you see a rebel child, be sure to look first at the parents. There is a definite cause ---> effect relationship. That child just didn't become rebellious over night. No, the process took years and a rebellious child is simply the end result bad parenting.

Disclaimer.... In this article I do not want the reader to get the wrong idea. Rather than saying: don't do this... or don't do that, I'm taking the opposite position. Instead. I'm giving several pointers to people who wish to lead their children astray. The goal is for people to read these suggestions and NOT to do them. I am not saying, for example, take your child to 'R' movies. Of course that is wrong and should not be done. But I am saying if you want to lead your child astray then let him/her watch 'R' rated movies. Please do not misunderstand this article. The goal is to avoid doing the below suggestions. The goal is to be a committed parent and to raise a Godly seed.


Here are some ways for parents to influence and to raise a rebellious child:

1) As parents be sure you are not committed parents. Do not commit yourself to the spiritual ministry of raising a Godly seed. Develop the attitude of not caring what happens in the upbringing of your child.

2) Be sure to go to a liberal doctrine rejecting church. Be sure the church is ecumenical with other false religions. It is very important to expose your child to all kinds of religious hypocrisy in their church life as early as possible. This way they will grow up and probably forsake church all together. Also, don't attend church regularly. Go every once and awhile. This way your children will clearly see that church and Bible study is not a priority in life.

3) Allow rock and roll in the life of your child. Be sure you attend a church where the youth groups are totally obsessed with rock and roll. Develop the attitude that rock music is just harmless fun. Let your child get obsessed with teen idols and let them go to rock and roll concerts. Let your children get heavily involved with secular rock and roll. After all that is what 'everyone' else is doing and you certainly want your child to fit in with their secular unsaved friends. The fruit of rock is rebellion. Be sure your child gets lots of it! Music, posters, and concerts are all good tools for leading your child astray. Make good use of them! Remember that rock and roll is a bridge back to the world. Take advantage of that! Rockers are also very bad role models in their lifestyle and dress. Children naturally imitate the demonic rock and rollers both secular and religious. Just watch your child begin to dress up, cut their hair, and imitate their favorite rock and roll groups. You know you are being successful in creating a rebel when that happens!

4) Be sure to get a tv/vcr for your child and let them watch unsupervised. Put it in your child's room and let your child rent and view movies that are not appropriate. Allow all kinds of bad influences in TV, movies, and rock and roll music. This type of influence is very important for your child in creating a rebel. Also, be sure you don't leave out Saturday cartoons and cartoon videos in the life of your child. Get the ones with lots of occult spells and witchcraft. This way your child can be exposed to the occultic things of the devil at a very early age.

5) It is very important as parents to put work and church service before your children. Neglect your children while claiming you are earning a living or serving the Lord. Spend as many hours away from your children as possible. Get lots of baby-sitters and rent lots of movies and rock videos to keep your child amused while you are away. Your child will understand there are just some things that are more important than him/her.

6) Set a proper example and do not love or obey sound Biblical doctrine. Let your child see that you are not interested in the things of the Lord. One day your child will grow up to be just like you!

7) Be sure to avoid Biblical separation. This is teaching that is better done by example. Go out to bars, drink booze, and enjoy your life doing all the things that would make Satan proud. After all, that is where your heart is, so set the proper example for your child.

8) Raise your child to be a child of the world. Teach your child to conform to the things and ways of the world. Let them know they must be popular with the lost people of this world. The only way to do that is to conform and be like them. Again the proper example set by the parents is very helpful.

9) Let your child make up their own mind with good and evil. Your child has a mind and must learn to use it. Do not force your standards upon your child. Simply let your own child make up their mind about right and wrong on their own.

10) Expose your child to evil. Do not be overprotective as people may talk and think you are sheltering your children too much. Besides, how will your child cope with the world if they don't know all the various forms of evil out there?

11) Allow the occult in your child's life. Buy them a quiji board to play with at Christmas. Stock up on occultic cartoons and videos. Be sure to encourage them to read as this is very important in life. Be sure to get great occult books like Harry Potter for your child to improve his reading skills.

12) Get angry when others correct your child. If your child gets into trouble for being bad, get mad at the people responsible not at your child. Let your child know that they can do no wrong and that you will defend them against any trouble other people cause them outside the house.

13) Teach your children by example how to be disrespectful, bitter, and rude. Again actions are worth thousands of words.

14) Do not encourage Godly spiritual growth. There should be no prayer at bedtime or meals. There should be no Bible reading or memorization. Be sure your child has no interest in learning about God. Besides it would be terrible if your child grew up to be some kind of 'Bible thumper'.

15) Show how to be a shallow professing Christian. Again, example is the preferred method of teaching

16) Take your child to adult movies. Spend quality time with your child. Go to the local movie house and let your children watch any movie that catches your fancy. Don't worry about the rating as it is good to expose your child to these things anyway. Besides, during any raw sex scenes you can always give your child a few bucks and tell him to go and pick up some candies and popcorn.

17) Teach child to refuse Godly teaching and correction. Be sure you set the example. If a true Christian warns you about some evil you are involved in, be sure to laugh, mock, and call that person names like: narrow-minded, unloving, judgmental, and legalistic. This way when your child gets into bad things they too will refuse Godly correction and instruction.

18) When you punish your child, do it very harshly and often. Make your child despise you by harsh punishment. Do it often and publicly if needed. Use both verbal and physical abuse to get your points across. Your child may hate you now, but remember that somehow you turned out ok.

19) Avoid temper tantrums as they can be embarrassing in public. Instead, let your child have his own way. Let your child enjoy childhood by getting their own way. Do not stress out your child or hurt their self esteem by telling them 'NO'.

20) It's a dog-eat-dog world out there. Teach your children to look out after number one! Being selfish and self centered is not so bad as mommy and daddy have been doing that for years!

Well that is the list of suggestions for parents who wish to raise a God-rejecting, rebellious child. I certainly hope that no one does any of the above. If so, then it is time to do some repenting and straighten things out!

Parenting is a ministry to the Lord and should be treated as such. It involves love, commitment, prayer, and patience. Take this ministry seriously. Build a strong love bond with your child and raise him/her in the ways of the Lord.

If the child is becoming rebellious then perhaps repentance is needed. The starting place should be the parents. They should do what they can to honor and please God. A Godly example is a very strong influence to a child.

Don't forget that the rebellious child is still accountable to God even though they were raised by bad parents. Once a child knows better he/she is very accountable to make the decision to obey or rebel against God. The parents cannot shoulder all the blame.

For example I know of one professing Christian family. They are liberal, doctrine rejecting, and apostate. They have also raised a rebellious child who is addicted to secular rock and roll. When confronted about her evil music the child acts just like her parents. She refuses instruction and will not hear of it. The parents also get upset if anyone tries to tell their child anything. The child has the same doctrine rejecting, rebellious, and unteachable attitude as the parents. I guess you could call them the 'tare' family. But little do they realize but they will be paid back for their sin and their terrible parental failure. As the child reaches the older teenager years her rebellion will cause much grief to her parents.

I know of another case where a girl was raised wrong. She developed a bad spirit of rebellion and got into sexual immorality. Her last boyfriend was a criminal who had the AIDS virus. Guess what, this little girl also has AIDS and will not live a long life!

The warnings in this tract are to be taken seriously. A child needs the proper upbringing from Godly Christian parents who wish to serve and please God.

We close this article with several Scriptures encouraging parents to seek to raise Godly children. It is a big responsibility and a ministry to be a parent. Take it very seriously!

3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

Psalm 78

5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:
6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
