Indoctrinate Your Children

Mention the word “indoctrinate” these days and you’ll probably get varied responses. Those of a more conservative political bent are likely to envision rows of people in drab uniforms being taught to unquestioningly bend to the will of some totalitarian regime. More liberal folks may instead picture adults building and reinforcing racist attitudes in young children. Now, to be sure, both of these images are extremely negative and most likely both groups of people would want to avoid both imagined scenarios.

The People Who Pray And The Spirit Who Sends

Acts 13:1-3 (ESV)

13 Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.
