Sounding the Alarm Part 2

It is unfortunate that in our society today, it takes at least two incomes to support a family. That means absentee parents, and children who are left in the care of an older sibling or just to themselves. Often we cannot afford to pay someone to care for our children while they are alone and we are at work.

Then we have single-parent families, which usually means that single parent has almost no time for the children. The children then are left feeling unimportant and unloved. They may seek affection and caring from other sources, which can lead to very severe problems.

I made some typos in part one of this series. Prayer and church attendance are NOT enough to ensure the safety of our children. NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES, WE MUST FIND WAYS TO WATCH OVER AND PROTECT THEM. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Sit down with your child and go over some safety rules about not trusting ANYONE too much. A family member, close friend, neighbor, teacher, anyone has the potential of molesting your child, regardless of gender. We live in a perverted society. It even happens in church groups because no one is perfect, not even Christians. And not everyone who goes to church is a Christian. Some people are just religious. Some people go to church because they are depressed and want to feel better. Some people go to church just because they were raised to do so. There are many other reasons, but you get the picture.
  • Make sure you have a good relationship with your child/children so that they feel they can come to you if someone does mistreat them. Also, know your child well enough to know if they are making it up to get attention, or if they are lying because they are mad at someone and wants to get them in trouble. But ALWAYS be willing to listen. Be willing to check out the accusation, even if you think that person would never do such a thing. We generally trust too easily, too quickly. We never know what’s in another person’s mind. Be sure to emphasize to your child that no matter what threat they have been given to keep them quiet, it is a scare tactic and that it is your job to protect them. Make sure the child understands the importance of NOT BEING AFRAID to tell you about it if does happen, regardless of who the perpetrator is.
  • Give your child/children instructions on what to do if someone does molest or hurt them in any way: a neighbor or friend to contact, how to get in touch with you while you are at work. If someone molests them they need to dial 9-1-1 at the first opportunity and give as much detail as possible to the authorities and have the authorities contact you at work.
  • If your child/children are home alone while you are at work, have them stay inside, play quietly, no loud TV or music, and lock the door, and keep it locked until you return home.
  • Teach them what to do in case of fire.
  • Check out your child’s friends and families. Don’t let them stay with just anyone. It would be better if the child’s friends came to your house so you can check on them, and know what’s going on. When you visit other families, check on your child often. You never know what goes on behind closed doors, with an adult or another child. Most children are molested by someone in the family, or close to the family. Don’t let yourself wear blinders. I know from personal experience that a child who has been molested often carries the emotional scars for the rest of their lives and their lives are filled with bad decisions, resentment, and bitterness that only God can heal.

 

 

Satan’s Bid For Your Child: Rock Music Part 3

Kay’s note: I thought I had posted this, or had it scheduled to post but I’m not finding it, so if this is a duplicate post, please forgive me.

Paul cantor of the “Jefferson Airplane” said on the Les Crane Show, “The new rock music is intended to broaden the generation gap, alienate parents from their children, and prepare young people for revolution.” There was a day when such filth was given in little papers that were sold between the covers of magazines or underneath the counter, but now they get on the television programs, look us square in the eye, and with the Supreme Court’s sanction say, “We are trying to alienate children from parents and cause revolution in America.” And we pay them to do it! How long will we be so foolish!

Bob Dylan is called by communist People World Publication as “America’s greatest poet.” LOOK magazine said that he is “unchallenged as a teen and college-crowd absolute hipster.” Here is one of his recordings:

Come, mothers and fathers throughout the land,

Don’t criticize what you can’t understand.

Your sons and daughters are beyond your command.

Your old road is rapidly aging;

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changing,

The line is drawn,

The curse is cast,

The slow one now will later be fast

As the present now will later be past

The order is rapidly fading

The first one now will later be last

For the times they are a-changing.

So much of the music in our nation is dedicated to revolution. Phil Ochs is one of the heroes and darlings of the revolutionaries. (By the way, these songs are played on radio stations in Hammond and Chicago, and their records are selling by the millions.) Phil has one called, “I Ain’t Marchin’ Anymore.” That one is against the Vietnam War. How do you like this one for a song, “The Draft Dodger Rag”?  Our boys and girls are listening to it! Phil Ochs said, “The Vietcong are right. We should support Ho Chi Minh” He has created such popular lines as “White boots marchin’ in yellow land, We’re fighting in a war we lost before the war began. We’re the white boots marchin’ in a yellow land, and Cops, soldiers of the world.” “The War’s Over” has these words:

Serve your country in her suicide

Find a flag so you can wave goodbye

But just before the end,

Treason might be worth a try.

The Lovin’ Spoonful, another singing group, published an album recently entitled, “Revolution ’69.”

  1. Rock music is definitely promoting the sale and use of drugs in America. In the authentic biography of the Beatles we are told that they started using drugs at the beginning of their career. This is no secret. Every time you buy their records you are paying for dope and are hooked up with a culture that is dedicated to the destruction of America and the propagation of narcotics. The Beatles have a song entitled, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Lucy-L-in the Sky-S-with Diamonds-D- and it’s publicized LSD.” They have code words in their songs the hippie crowd understands. As they sing the songs, they are speaking about drugs.

Gordon McClendon, a Texan who owns thirteen radio stations across the country, decided to take all the music off his radio stations that had anything to do with drugs or the use of drugs. He was attacked and blasted even by a leading magazine because of his action!

If I weren’t a Christian, I think my cultural taste would be above such trash. If I didn’t believe in God, I still would find it disgusting. Not only does this jungle beat go against my Christian principles but it also opposes my culture, refinement, and taste.

Many of the leading songs have been admittedly written under the influence of drugs. Here is “White Rabbit” as sung by the Jefferson Airplane.

One pill makes you larger,

And one pill makes you small,

And the ones that mother gives you don’t do anything at all;

Go ask Alice when she’s ten feet tall

And if you off chasin’ rabbits,

Then you know you’re going to fall

Tell ’em a hookah-smokin’ caterpillar

Has given you the call.

And call Alice when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go

And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

         Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know

        When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead

        And the white knight is talking backwards

        And the red queen’s off with her head

       Remember what the dormouse said

       Feed your head! Feed your head!

Wouldn’t Shakespeare have been proud of that? (By the way, what ever happened to Shakespeare?) We’re rearing a generation of revolutionaries, and this music has much to do with it!

Now listen to the words of the Beatles’ hit, “She’s Leavin’ Home.”

She’s havin’ fun,

Fun is the thing tht money can’t buy,

Something inside that’s always denied for many years

Bye, bye, she’s leavin’ home. Bye, bye.

I wonder how many girls have heard that “song” played by some disc jockey on a radio station and have left home to go into sin. One mother called me the other day, and she was crying as she said, “Brother Hyles, my daughter has been to your Sunday school. She has gone to your church, and she’s left home and gone over to the Village Boutique! She’s over there! What can I do about it? What can I do?” I wonder how many young girls have listened to this kind of communist-inspired filth and have left home, Mother, and decency.

I wept as I read about a rock music festival on the east coast. A half million young people attended. They said it was characterized by narcotics and nudity, yet, the merchants of the town said, “They’re fine young people” as those who do not loot stores and burn buildings. “fine young people,” but they gathered there and lived in a cesspool of iniquity, vulgarity, lasciviousness, adultery, fornication, dope and everything that’s indecent and got by with it!
