Segregation in churches is dividing the family. It is especially damaging to our youth, who need their parents' leadership more than at any other time. The teenage years are not the time to ship off your kids to the cool youth group leader and hope he disciples your children well. That's YOUR job. And what a blessed privilege it is!
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and you shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.Deuteronomy 6:5-7
