I recently received an email from the PC(USA) store that was advertising an updated curriculum for children’s Bible study. I usually delete those emails because I can’t trust what comes from the denominational structure, but on this day was curious. The curriculum in question is called “Growing in God’s Love.” I won’t link it here because I can’t, in good conscience, direct anyone to their website. But if you are curious, you can just Google it. The samples that were attached in this email are dripping with false teaching, specifically the teaching of secular humanism.
Growing up in the South meant a constant barrage of country music. There isn’t anything inherently wrong with county music; it just wasn’t my go-to genre when growing up. However, as the years have changed and I've matured in my faith and life, I find myself listening to country music more and more. Theologically speaking, I do prefer the wholesomeness of the Christian music genre, but even there a radio station without a biblical foundation might play Christian music that doesn't proclaim a Scriptural message. Many of my nominal Christian associates consider country music to be wholesome and overall Christian. They couldn't be further from the truth.
