Strengthen Your Family Through Biblical Homeschooling

With so much entertainment and digital content flowing to cell phones, tablets and computers — and with the themes and subject matter becoming increasingly inappropriate for kids — many parents are looking for safe movies, TV shows and documentaries for the whole family.

I am so excited to tell you about a movie we are thrilled to be partnering with this season, for we believe strongly that understanding our beginnings is a critical foundation for our faith. You see, if we don’t believe that ALL of God’s Word is true and inspired by God  (as noted in 2 Timothy 3:16-17,) on what merit do we determine which parts are and aren’t, and how can we be expected to pass on our faith to our children in a way that will equip and inspire them to make it their own?

GENESIS: Paradise Lost gives us parents a GREAT tool to do just that! Not only will you find this to be a great teaching tool for you children, but with new studies being published recently about all humans coming from just one couple, science is once again lining up with scripture, leaving the skeptics with much to think about and opening doors for us to share the truths of scripture with our family and friends who may not believe. (Check out this article in the New York Post if you don’t believe me. )

GENESIS: Paradise Lost

Using cutting-edge cinematography and stunning visual effects, GENESIS: Paradise Lost takes the viewer “back to the beginning” to investigate our origins and explore the creation story. While the booming voice of Dr. Voddie Baucham provides riveting narration, the film is interspersed with interviews from scientists, apologists, and evangelists like Dr. Charles Jackson, Ken Ham, and Ray Comfort. (Ken Ham, Ray Comfort, and Voddie Baucham are all speaking at Teach Them Diligently events this season.)

Profoundly, GENESIS: Paradise Lost sheds light on secular worldviews which choose the chaos of moral relativity over the sure foundation of Scripture.

Dove Approved for ALL AGES, we believe GENESIS: Paradise Lost would be a fantastic resource to share with your children, family, and friends. You can order a copy at a discounted rate as you register for Teach Them Diligently 2019, or you can pick up a copy today by clicking here.. No matter how you choose to order, I encourage you to do so. This is a GREAT discipleship tool, and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you as we all endeavor together to strengthen our families through Biblical homeschooling.

Joining You In This Journey!
