I've been struggling all week with something that I heard last Sunday night, and I would appreciate some opinion about whether I should be concerned or not. The teens went on their annual winter retreat last weekend. Evidently, it was a terrific retreat. Some kids got saved and others made some decisions. Sunday night, the preaching was pretty much directed to the teens and some of it was also directed to parents. During the message, the preacher made a comment that has bothered me all week. I don't remember the exact quote, but the paraphrase that I took away was, "Don't undermine at home what we're trying to put into the kids here." Here's what bothers me about what I heard on Sunday night. The very subtle implication that I took away was, "Parents, don't get in the way of what we're trying to do here." I'm the one who ultimately decides what goes into my kids, not the church. If he meant that parents need to sort of get out of the way so the church can work, I don't agree with that. If he meant that parents shouldn't be hypocrites, doing one thing at church and another at home, and that this undermines not only what the church does, but also undermines what the parents say they want for their kids, then I'm on-board with that. I don't have exact wording, and I realize that you have limited information to base your position, but I would like to hear your take anyway. I don't know whether I'm just interpreting it incorrectly, or whether I should be very concerned. This is the first time I've heard something like this at my church and it bothers me. Should it?
