New Morality Tracts for Children

Perhaps more than ever before in American history, young people find themselves in an environment that is increasingly hostile to their development of proper moral sensibilities. With evolution, humanism, and secularism dominating public schools from kindergarten to college, many children have little encouragement to cultivate Christian morality. Conscientious parents can do their best, but it would be nigh unto impossible to shield children from every possible influence. From television, cinema, magazines, and books, to friends, teachers, and acquaintances, young people encounter a host of sources that potentially introduce spiritually destructive ideas into their minds.

In addition to monitoring and supervising our children’s contact with these subversive, worldly influences, it is imperative that parents and grandparents provide the young people in their lives with spiritually enriching, faith-building materials. Think of the many gifts that we typically give our children and grandchildren. How many of those gifts are frivolous, fleshly baubles that do nothing to nourish the human spirit and “perish with using”? Since Satan is working 24 hours a day to capture our young people, how dedicated and diligent ought we to be in our efforts to train, nurture, and inoculate children with the information necessary to prepare them for eternity?

Once again, A.P. is working feverishly to fill these crucial services. Our kids’ Morality Tracts Series has just been released. This series targets young people in the 10- to 12-year-old range. Consider the 12 subjects these tracts address: Bragging, Homosexuality, How We Treat Others, Jealousy, Lying, Obeying Your Parents, Our Words, Pornography, Sex Before Marriage, Stealing, What Goes into Your Body, and What Goes into Your Mind. As usual, our team of talented writers has done a marvelous job of handling some rather sensitive topics in a delicate and mature fashion.

May I encourage you to take advantage of this outstanding resource for children? Let us assist them in donning “the whole armor of God, that [they] may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:11-13).
