Our Lord does not hold us responsible for our inherited sinful nature; we didn't choose it. He does hold us responsible for either accepting or rejecting His provision to set us free from the power of sin and death. We must teach--and live before our youth--the fear of the Lord if the Christian faith is to survive and grow in this present world of so much information that is available through modern technology. They need to know there is a God who has a good plan for their future. We have this hope through His grace.
