Do not err as many do in believing the Old Testament is not relevant, its words only applied to a different age. These words are today’s reality. These words reveal past prophecies being fulfilled. Are any words here from Scripture not as if written today? True? Revealing the truth of our time?
People such as Samantha Price mentioned in the article below appear so progressive, so enlightened, so relevant, and someone to listen to. She and all like her are representatives of nothing but darkness. The way away from God and God’s Word and the way to serving this world, being led and ruled by children, disobeying God and His Word, and serving Satan. Plain and simple. Sorry, folks, there are no gray areas. No other paths to take and reside upon. It’s either God and His Word, or it’s the world and Satan. No other way to go, ways to live or believe — or serve.
These words did not die, are no longer relevant or true. On the contrary. These words are as living, true and relevant today as the day they were first written on papyrus.
And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
Isaiah 3:4 — King James Version
“I will make youths their leaders, and unstable rulers will govern them.”
Isaiah 3:4 — Christian Standard Bible
My people—infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, your guides mislead you and they have swallowed up the course of your paths.
Isaiah 3:12 — English Standard Version
For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
Isaiah 9:16 — King James Version
Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
Ecclesiastes 8:11 — English Standard Version
For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind…
Hosea 8:7 — English Standard Version
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 — King James Version
Children and Parents
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

ACP — A Crooked Path
Adults are wrong to criticise ‘woke’ children, says Benenden head

The president of the Girls’ Schools Association believes that parents and teachers have a duty to “keep up” with young people and not mock them for being “woke”.
Samantha Price will use a speech at the association’s annual conference to urge fellow head teachers to challenge anyone who “dismisses this generation as woke, being part of a cancel-culture or snowflakes”.
Price, headmistress of Benenden School in Kent, is to say: “I am getting a little weary of hearing the older generation say, ‘You can’t say anything any more’. The fact is that times have changed, and we simply need to keep up with them. Being woke actually just means being awake to social justice.”
She adds: “What has really stuck me is that this so-called ‘woke’ generation are actually simply young people who care about things: about causes, about the planet, about people. It ultimately comes down to something very simple: being kind.”
She will tell fellow private school heads: “It would be unforgivable for the older generation to close its mind to new ideas, to retreat to ‘the good old days’ and dismiss the energetic changes of this generation as something to be referred to in derogatory tones and sighs.
“I would challenge us, the teachers in our staffrooms and the parents of the students in our schools, to think hard about whether being ‘woke’ is something to be criticised for.
“It describes someone who has ‘woken up’ to issues of social injustice. I would say that if this word in its true meaning describes our teens, we have much to be proud of and hopeful for in this next generation and it is our duty to listen and nurture this.”
Price told The Times that momentum in tackling sexual harassment, after thousands of girls came forward to talk about abuse from boys their own age — including on school premises — should not be lost.
She said: “The issues emerging from the Everyone’s Invited campaign are extremely important and, thankfully, it seems as if some positive action is now coming out of the very concerning revelations that have been reported.
“Topics such as what a healthy relationship looks like are built into the revised relationships and sex education curriculum.
“Lots of schools are taking the opportunity for these to be joint discussion sessions with boys and girls present. It is important that all schools work together on this topic and that the boys are not demonised.”
All schools should host talks with parents on inclusion, diversity and gender to help them to understand the “new language” of the younger generation, Price added.
She acknowledged that some parents were “deeply unsettled” about some topics such as gender identity but warned that dismissing students who demanded change as “woke” could cause them to give up on equality and sustainability campaigns.
However, the private school head said that pupils should not walk out of class for climate protests because “standing in a street with a banner” was unlikely to make a difference.
She acknowledged that the younger generation did not always approach their protests in the best way and she will say that it is schools’ job to help to teach pupils how to conduct themselves when campaigning.
