I’m concerned that we as American women are some of the best educated women in the world, yet we are weak minded when being motivated by trendy ideas. We pursue knowledge from universities or self-help books, but are unable to recognize the damage the trendy ideas are executing on this generation and for generations to come. I do believe some of the “old” ideas that were passed down and had no value or reasoning, need to go. However, as adults and mentors we need to instill some lost values such as good judgment, purity, respect and compassion. These will leave a positive affect for generations to come.
2 Tim. 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
We’re consenting to allow the world to mentor our children instead of the Word of God. You can not separate your faith from your every day life based on trendy opinions and theories. The Word of God is not trendy and it does not change!
Paul wrote to Timothy saying in the days, (paraphrasing) there will be no respect for what is holy, there will be more love of pleasure rather than God. Some will appear to have a godly life but they won’t let its power change them. Counterfeit teachers will increase in the last days. He cautioned that they would be especially manipulative of weak-minded women who are burdened with sins and led by all kinds of desires. I believe he particularly mentioned women here because we do most of the teaching of our children.
We may not be able to rationalize with trendy thoughts but if we are not prepared with the knowledge of the Word God then we are weak and unlearned.
The weak and unlearned become vulnerable to many worldly ideas. I desire to be knowledgeable in God’s Word so that I can be strong in the face of adversity.
