"Righteousness Exalts a Nation, but Sin is a reproach to Any People." (Prov 14:34)


According to the latest poll release -The proportion of Americans who say they are “absolutely certain” God exists fell  to 63 percent in 2014 from 71 percent in 2007.  The trend is most pronounced among young adults, with only half of those born from 1990 to 1996 absolutely certain of their belief in God.
This is a direct result of the failure of parents to obey the following scriptures.
Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Deuteronomy 6: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one![b] You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Failing to train up the children results in them becoming FOOLS.  Professing to be wise, they became Fools, and changed the Glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man-and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (Romans 1:22-25 ) 
We can turn this tragedy around; "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon." (Isa 55:6-7)
