I have a 25 year old daughter that stopped believing in God as a teenager, and now my 14 year old son just told us he didn't believe in God either. My 14 year old tells us that it is the people that do good things, and God has nothing to do with working through them. He also says he does not believe in the devil. The 25 year old could not have influenced the 14 year old. How do you handle that? How do you bring them back to God?

Hi, in my experience you have to trust that the Lord loves your kids so much more than you do... I know that may sound weird. He is looking out for you children. There are promises in the Bible which tell us that our 'whole household will be saved', do a study to find these and stand on them. Cast the care of you kids onto the Lord because 'he does the caring for you.' Worrying about our kids means that we are not trusting them into God's hands. We as mums feel we have to worry about them, but actually worry can do nothing, instead lets allow God to work in their lives and to bring them to a place of faith in Jesus. I have seen this happen with my own children. When I take my hands off, God takes over. He has set up meetings in miraculous ways. An example, my son was waiting for the bus, the driver got out to stretch his legs, and struck up a convo with my son. Then he said, 'you know what you need? You need Jesus!' This had a profound effect on my son. He is not 'saved' yet, but I call him 'saved'. I believe he is saved and I act accordingly.Thanking God is the most powerful prayer we can say for our kids. My main point is.... Trust that the Lord is more than able to work in your kids lives! God bless you.

Stop this God propaganda, we don't know if God exists.
Everytime people don't find answers, they prefer to believe in so called creature, "God".

They're growing up into a more evolved mindset don't try to force your faith on them they'll just resent you more..I told my parents at a very young age right when I began sunday school but I don't think they took me seriously til my 20s. Yes I've read the bible repeatedly and studied theology in school...before you ask. Please don't waste your prayers on me either which studies have shown have no better results than chance outcomes. If you think you have a hotline to a divine all powerful entity them pray for those that need it the most such as ... the starving ill masses in the world, children who suffer abuses and are killed or taken or lost everyday. I can't wait to share the history of religion worldwide with my son, read the bible with him without cherry picking out the horrors and hypocrisy. I hope your children find a path of peace and enlightenment that they can share with you someday and you will listen and not just close your eyes and ears in fear as so many christians do.

You don't. Respect your children, and don't force "God" on them. You will do nothing but irritate and distance yourself from your children by trying to force faith on them, I've seen It happen far too many times.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

How could you be so mad, what happened in your Life that you are so mad at the Creator of the universe, How can you say there is no God when you see a new born baby, or look at the skies how did this all come to being. We live in a fallen world where there is evil, but I am so glad I have a God who loves me and called me before this world was even created. I have been thru a lot in my life and if I hadn't had my Heavenly Father I would of not made it. Just read John it is Gods love letter to you.

Your child is learning to trust the evidence they can observe. This is the greatest skill a person can possess. If it brings you comfort to thank your god for that, then you should do so. Don't be an obstacle to your child figuring out how the world works by forcing your faith on him.

Hi, Heather, welcome. No, you are not supposed to watch what you talk about in your OWN home! Your home is Christian, Jesus is the Center, you naturally talk about Jesus. AND, as long as they are under your roof, they abide by your rules. HOWEVER, preaching or nagging does NOT work. Paul said an unbelieving spouse could be saved by their mate's Christian attitude, and I believe the same is true for our children. Solomon said, in Proverbs, 'train up a child in the way he should go, and when he's old, he will not depart'. I hold to this Scripture with everything I have. We have a child 47, who we haven't seen now her children, my grandchildren, since 2000. That Scripture helps keep my sanity. This is also how I grow my faith. I can't physically SEE her, but I can see through faith her and her family again in our home and most importantly, that her heart becomes right again so SHE can make Heaven her home.

Live your life in front of your son. That will be the best testimony you have for him. Then pray--prayer is the most powerful tool a mother has.

God bless, honey

My 17 yr old gets very angry when I talk about God or my faith. I honestly don't know what the right or wrong things are to say. I feel like we are called as Christians and parents to profess our faith, and speak of the Word, free will, the consequences of not choosing Jesus as ur Savior, & how we are sad to think of not being with our children for eternity. Is it wrong to tell them these things in discussion about God and faith? Is it wrong to tell her that I know I can't make her believe, but that I will always and do pray for her to accept Christ as her Savior? Am I supposed to watch what I say or talk about in front of her, as to not anger her, or "not show respect for her personal beliefs? " Or lack thereof? I have been learning lately (from troubles with my oldest child) that there comes a point when I am no longer able to influence or parent how I think I'm supposed to. I've been doing much better about letting go, and letting God. As long as they are in our care, physically, (living at home, underage), is it not still my job? At what point do you give them to God and His plan for their life, & step back to pray your heart out for them? I just want to do what God wants me to do, but I get confused about what we are called to do & say to nonbelievers. I don't want to push her farther from God, but I don't want to not have said enough either. Need advice and prayers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[deleted account]

Honestly......so opinionated.....what makes you think God is something we "force" on our children! My children are adults now and yeah ...they are not Christians anymore...but they often say to me that they are so thankful for their Christian upbringing.....they are trying to live their own lives....but they struggle so much.....they are making their way back to their roots......

The same thing happened to me 35 years ago. I stopped believing in the devil, and my belief in a god soon came into question thereafter. My parents were shocked and amazed that I have become a freethinker all on my own. Thanks Mom and Dad for letting me become me.

I don't understand what you're referring to, Denise--the Godhead is beyond color--if we go by Jesus' human color, he a was dark-skinned, black hair, brown eyed Middle-Eastern man. I personally don't care if They are purple with pink polka dots, as long as they accept me and allow me the privilege of serving Them.

I pray your children find their faith. The best way for them to FIND faith is for you to LIVE your faith in front of them. Nagging them isn't going to make them believe. It might get them to church, but it won't change their minds. Only the Holy Spirit can convict a person's heart. So pray for them, love them, and live a Godly life in front of them. That's the best way I know to introduce Jesus to a person. Make Him so attractive that no one in their right mind wouldn't want to accept Him.

God bless, honey

Hi, Madison, welcome!

Your parents, or anyone, really, can't be brought to God. You can, however, bring God to them! You can be Jesus to them! How do you do that? By obeying their rules, by answering them with love and respect, living your life like Jesus would. Do you fight with your siblings? Stop! Being different than you were because of the Love of God in your heart is the quickest way to make your parents, or anyone ask 'what is different about Madison? She has really changed'. Then sometimes along the way they will ask you 'why are you different?' and you can tell them about Jesus.

No one wants to hear you preach Jesus when you are acting like a beast, whether a little child or a grown up. This is a mistake most Christian people make. If we can make ourselves the best we can, Jesus will show through and you won't have to say hardly a word.

God bless you, honey. You want a good thing. Keep praying for your parents, show the LOVE of Jesus, and they will come to Him.

I am actually 14 myself. And I'm having trouble bringing my mother and father to god. They both grew up going to catholic school, but had issues where the nuns beat them. We went to church as a family until I was ten. We then stopped, now, I go to church by myself. I have been praying for five weeks now, and I have two church's that I go to, praying for us and pushing for us. I need help bringing Jesus up and talking to them. Anything helps. Thanks.

@ Rachel Evans - Kenitra Eubank started this thread in February 2010 - 3½ years ago! Her 14 year old is now 17 or 18 and the 25 year old daughter is now 28 or 29!

Children are wholly separate individuals from their parents, we can't make them clones of ourselves - especially with regard to religious beliefs and personal values. Indeed, as Christians, we cannot PROVE the existence of God in a way that satisfies Science. Other religions and belief systems are equally unable to prove that their god exists in a way that satisfies Science.

On the other hand, Science cannot prove that God doesn't exist in any way to satisfy either itself or any religion. So it's down to personal faith.

There is a lot we can do for other people, but we can't believe or disbelieve FOR them. Every individual has a God-given free will.

As Christians, the Bible is God's Word to us, His guidance on our doctrine, His recommendations for our lives and also a history book. To anyone else, it's just another book.

Many of us cannot take God at His Word. Given that we frequently can't (or won't) take our fellow human beings at THEIR word, why should we be surprised?

Prayer is the only answer here - and prayer is so much more effective when we don't browbeat the unbeliever and constantly state "I'm praying for you ....." they'll harden their hearts by a sheer act of will! Pray deeply but don't tell them.

I'm sorry to hear about your brother Rachel. I'll pray for him and for you.

I'm so sorry Kenitra. My brother has stopped believing. Science didn't make him stop. He has a PhD in nano-physics, several patents, and he is 50 years old. He has stopped believing because he recently ran out on his wife and children, has a myriad of addictions, is trying to turn his children away from their own mother by tempting them with his own lascivious lifestyle, and his guilty mind is looking for some way to justify his actions....so saying he no longer believes seemed like a good way. If your 14 year old is still under your roof, I'd limit unsupervised contact with the 25 year old and pray and fast continuously that they will both eventually know the truth and believe it. If they are close to one another, then most likely the influence was there. You'll be met with resistance, but it's your home. Stay true to your own beliefs and continue to lead a life according to God's word, and they will see.

I find, Calinda, that it takes more 'faith' to believe a bunch of primordial goo that contained the DNA for every single person and animal magically came together in the vast space and was zapped somehow into life.

I think you are a person of intellect, and want to know the how's and why's of a thing. Ken Hamm has some great facts about evolution vs creationism. You might want to check him out. His explanation of giraffes in the evolutionary chain is quite interesting. I challenge you to check him out.

@colleen lol what is your definition of logic? Do you understand what agnostics believe? How does christianity have no holes in it's story, oh wait *robot voice* because the bible told me so - think for yourself and believe in your self, take responsibilty for yourself at least then you can take credit for your successes and get up off your knees and work out solutions for your own problems.

@Auntie.. Really? Reason, science, logic are not your side? And whose side are they on then? Agnosticism and atheism are rife with logical holes. Christianity is not.

Kenitra- God has honored, and in many instances has answered, the fervent prayers of believers for the salvation of unbelievers. Continue to pray and focus on your own relationship with Him.. I hope and pray your children find their center.

Wake up girl, before it is to late. I say this with love for you and for my Holy God. If you die today, where will you go? I can not tell you loud enough to seek God, through Jesus and his word. If you need to talk about this, write to me. I won't argue with you, however, I will write to you.

Instead of trying to convince them that God exists, why not allow them to try to convince you otherwise? Trust me, trying to convince someone that doesn't have faith to believe in god is a fruitless task, reason, science, logic are not on your side I'm afraid.They will either find their own way back or they will remain without faith for the rest of their lives. Either way, you should love and cherish them, be at their side whatever life throws at them. Live your own life through your own faith, only you can do that, your children have their own path to follow..

They are both at the age where they have to experience it themselves. If you have raised them in christianity then the bible says they will come back. Everybody goes through a period where they question their upbringing, their religion, and seek it for themselves. Without this growth period they will never embrace it as their own. Keep praying, don't force it on them, and be an example of CHrist's love.

Keep praying hun, The Lord hears our prayers! My son went through the same thing I tried talking tohim , had him had him talk to one of the Pastor's at our church everything I still don't know what caused him to think that way but now he is finally coming back to church and learning about the Lord again. Have faith and keep praying! Our families need it and so does our country!

I believe there is nothing more powerful than prayer. God hears our prayers whether we say them out loud or not. I also believe that we ask others to pray because God says to pray in numbers and to pray unceasing. When I don't want people to know my exact prayer, I ask my Christian family to prayer for my Unspoken Prayer because God knows what is in my heart and that is all that counts. I will pray for you and your children and I believe that God will answer our prayers in His time.

I understand where you are coming from. I have four sons age 21,23,30,31 with various outlooks on God. I have been professing Joshua 24:15 for my sons and their future wives. A praying mother, grandmother, etc is very important for them as well as letting them know when situations in their lives come up. Don't nag, it pushes them away. Trust the Holy Spirit, pray for Christian friends to be in their lives. God is faithful.........

Anti--you may not know if God exists, but we can assuredly tell you, He does. He loves each and every one of us, and longs for a relationship with us. He ISN'T an ATM machine, or a surgeon or car salesman. He does not give us everything we want, He gives us what we need, if we love Him. You are searching for something to believe. We all do or have done that. But until you DO find a relationship with Him, life just isn't quite right.

Father, this person has been injured, disillusioned or bullied by those who claim Your Name, but are not a True Christian. We ask, first, that You make Yourself real to him/her, and open his eyes so he can see how his life will change when he lives for You. Secondly, for those so-called Christians that turn so many people off You--we ask that you SAVE them! You are Love, Peace and Joy. If these people aren't showing this fruit, they are not Yours. Allow people to see these people for what they are, and walk away, not listening to them.

God bless

I hear you, Sarah, and my heart aches for you. Children can hurt you in ways you can't even imagine until you experience it yourself. It sounds so trite and flippant to say 'stop and pray', but prayer is the most effective tool you have. The God of the Universe loves us, just as He loves your son. Although your son thinks he is done with God, God isn't done with him! When I walked away, the Holy Spirit would come whisper in my ear 'Are you ready to come back yet?' I would say no, and He would leave--for a while, then come whisper again. Thankfully, I had the good sense to stop trying to do things myself and came running back, like the Prodigal Son.

Father, we pray for Sarah's son and all the sons and daughters who have decided Your ways are old and obsolete. We pray, Holy Spirit, that You wrap Yourself around them and take the blinders off their eyes so they can see You, the REAL YOU. We also ask for forgiveness. We have played church, embraced theories and doctrines that take our eyes off the Love You have for us and turn it inward, to please us. Teach us to mirror Jesus, and to just love--the world needs this. We ask for a blessing on all the mothers who are hurting today, give them the faith to believe even if they can't see it yet, the grace to go on, when we want to crawl into a hole and die, and the love to win the world to You. In Jesus' Name, amen.

God bless, baby, God's here.

My son told me the same thing last night. I am so numb and have such grief it is difficult to function this morning. I feel for you. It feels like I am grieving for the death of a child, because even though He accepted Christ and was baptized when he was younger, he has chosen to not continue believing at all. Until last night, I thought my son with be with me into eternity.

When your children tell you they do not believe in God it is heartbreaking. This is time to pray without ceasing. Satan would love for you to be discouraged. Take your pressure off your kids, stop talking to them about this and pray. Learn to be a good listener. I know it is heartbreaking but you need to pray. When we pray, our God is working at that moment. His Holy Spirit is working. Satan hates that. So you need to pray more.

And for you in this situation. It is time for you to have the kind of faith that Moses had. Can you imagine running from enemy towards a sea? It sounds like a trap and a very helpless situation. It was helpless for the humans. But not for God. For he is Mighty and can do great things. Memorize Eph. 3 17-24. It is powerful. Whenever your minds goes to habitual thinking, go to that instead. I emphasize memorization. That way it is going through your mind all the time. It will help.

Yes, I have been through this and my son seemed far far away. He is back. I learned a lot during that time. Most of all he did not want me, mom, judging or talking to much. Yes I was worried and frusturated and did not trust God enough.

Tara, you can't see the wind, but it's there. You can't see oxygen, but it's there. God is every bit as real as these elements, HOWEVER, we all have free will to believe or not. I choose to believe, having seen 62 years of miracles in my life.

I taught my children about our Lord, and our son is now studying to become a minister and our daughter is teaching her children. They both went through periods where they had to try out the world, but came back, after seeing the world can't compare to Jesus.

So before you decide God isn't real, try contacting Him. Talk to Him just like you did with us in your post. 'God, I am searching for Truth. If You are real, speak to me'. We are ALL looking for Truth, Tara. There is a God-shaped hole within our consciousness, and until that hole is filled, we are empty and alone. Lots of people haven't believed, but have been shown God through the love of His people. I hope and pray you find what you are missing.

God bless

God is a manmade , man made god up to explain the unexplainable , do you really think there's a man up in space looking down at us? No it's all based on faith , and a book written by men , not god if my parents told me that a giant monster lived in the sky made the world I would believe them and tell my kids does it mean it's real ? No that's like god can someone show me proof

I wouldn't do any thing , god is a man made idea , and we only believe because our parents tell us that god is real and teach us how the world was made and these stories , but these are lies and if were taught and told it's real then it's real to us , but doesn't mean it real let them make there own mind up , or show them god is real somehow

Jo
You sound like an angry person. I want to let you know that you are loved by God, through Jesus Christ, the son of God. John 3:16, if you choose to go there, will tell you how you too can have eternal life.

I would love to loving hear why you are so angry. I am praying that through these postings, you will have a heart change.

Be the parent you want your child to be. They will come around I am in the same position with my 17 yr old son. I want his faith to be HIS once he decides to come back to God.

I am not sure who Jo is directing his/her attack at, but I have reported him/her.

We pray for you, Jo, that the love that Jesus has to give to ALL people will find a way into your heart.

God bless

You are a psychotic bitch. Of course your son has an option of whether or not he believes in fictitious beings invented to rationalize and control stupid humans.

You praise your Great Imaginary Being that you somehow managed to raise 2 intelligent children, and stop trying to force your stupidity upon them.

I am praying dear Lord that B,T and K claim you as their Lord and Savior. That you would bring others into their lives that will show them and point them towards you. Help the adults in their lives not get in the way, but to support and love their children. Help them be Godly parents. Give these kids a place with their parents where they do not feel judged, but where they can share their hearts. Help mom and dad to bit their tongues if their responses are not from you.

Have mercy on these hearts oh God. Forgive them. Keep them safe and from evil. Help them remember that you are their God. You love them. I love reading Eph 4 17 through 21 over my Kids. Whenever I think of the scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth. I pray that His glorious, unlimited resources move through BT and K and that mighty inner strength move into these kids through your H.S. And I pray through Jesus their hearts would learn to trust Jesus more and more.

Convict their hearts and help them in their own spirit be close to you this Christmas and always.





Amen

I will do just that. I have been through this. It helped me to memorize scripture. My favorite is Eph. 4 17 through 24. It starts with Whenever I think if the scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the father, creator of heaven and earth. It goes on.



My mind goes to habit of dwelling on hard things. This scripture, I turn to every time I do that. God has helped me separate joy from trouble and worry, which is not of Him.



I hope this helps you deal with all this. Yes, I will pray for your children and definitely for you.
