Can the Lord Provide Guidance in These Troubled Times?
A Deacon Answers the Tough Questions for Young Readers
Why is today’s younger generation missing the religious guidance of past generations?
Deacon Tanya E. Partin Lawton believes that “children are different these days. They don’t know the Lord and it is up to us who lived through that time to tell our young. We were special though, because just about all of us knew God and went to church. Can you imagine? A young generation was in love with God. We need this today.”
In her book Without Souls: Missing Children, she writes, “You are about to undertake a once-in-a-lifetime jaunt into a forbidden place and a neglected time. You will review vintage documents from one of the most self-governing spaces and times in all American history, laced with original signatures of some of the most revered men in all antiquity and these Stygian times.”
Political and religious figures from the past are quoted, including President Theodore Roosevelt, who said: “A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.”
In these dark days when people are seeking guidance, she writes: “And through all of this, hope rears her lovely head, in a man named Jesus. He’s a man, with the Spirit of the living God in him, doing the will of God, and he saved us from all this. Unlock the book and all will see.”
