I Prayed have prayed
Lord, break through the lies the younger generation is being led to believe. We need Your help, wisdom, and guidance to reign.
Reading Time: 3 minutes

We hear from many intercessors their concerns about their children and grandchildren, as well as concern over the partisan division in the Church. What if we are coddling millennials to their destruction? This blog by Mario Murillo doesn’t mince words! We want to know what you think . . . share in the comments.

I remember it like it was yesterday. I could smell marijuana smoke. I looked over the fence into the yard of my neighbor, Sam, because the smoke was coming from his back porch. Sam was teaching his thirteen-year-old son how to light up and smoke dope.

It was not hard for him to interpret my glare. He defensively explained that he didn’t want to lose his son—that it is “better that he does it at home with me, than behind my back.”

Apparently, sitting his son down and explaining why it was dangerous and stupid to get stoned, was not an option. But, he was not saving his son—he was destroying him. . . .

In the same way, a prominent Evangelical ‘scholar’ explained why—even after he and his group called ‘Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden’, were used and lied to—he still supports Biden, because, he admits, he doesn’t want to lose the kids!

He said there are “many younger evangelicals who are not happy about … the way in which their parents and grandparents have endorsed and defended the Trump administration. We … don’t want to lose them to evangelicalism because of what is perceived as mean-spirited, highly partisan commitment on the part of the older generation of evangelicals.” Wait, what? . . .

How is what he is doing any better than what my neighbor Sam was doing? . . .

So we should smoke woke with them because we are afraid of losing them?

Millennials must not be classified as some exotic new human species that must be excused from correction and common sense. That is the greatest insult—and the purest form of hatred.

“Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise, you will destroy their lives” (Proverbs 19:18).

I stood before 2,000 youth at a Christian college. I said, “If you are not careful you are going to be the most boring old people America has ever known. If you look in my smart phone you will see pictures of people being saved and healed. If I were to look in most of your smart phones, what would I see, pictures of food?

“Imagine years from now, showing those pictures to your grandchildren. “Grandpa, what is this a picture of?” And you sheepishly answer, “Well, that was my breakfast.” And then they will ask, “Why are there 17 pictures of grandma in front of a mirror that are all exactly the same?””

Believe it or not, these young men and women did not race to a safe place or assume the fetal position. They laughed. They reacted the way young people have for generations. Why?  . . .

Because in our zeal to prove they are different, we have forgotten they are just the same as the youth of every generation. Scared and teachable. . . .

If this prominent evangelical were right, millennials would not be crowding the front of our tent to be saved. They can take the truth. More of them than you realize are ready to hear the other side of the story—the story about America’s decency, and the good things this nation has done in history.

It is the professors who have changed.  . . .

It is the Democrat Party that has changed.  And I do not care who this offends: if we do not want to lose them, we must risk losing them by speaking the truth, in love!

Dear Christian professor…so what if you keep them Christian by letting them support Biden? What happens down the road when they read about Hell in the Bible? . . .

When I get a chance to reason with youth, many of them wake up out of wokeness.  Catch phrases die after they are challenged to check their validity. When they spout stuff about Trump, I challenge them to show me, “When did he say that?” . . . .

I also know when it is time to confront a generation that has too much at stake to be coddled, hoodwinked, and appeased.

Stop smoking dope with them. Love them enough to tell them the truth, and do not destroy them!

I love Mario because he has the guts to stand with us and speak the truth! The spirit of deception and the anti-Christ has entered the church and the great divide took place. The Christians that call themselves Pro-life Biden supporters are given over to a repobate mind. They are the anti-christ, goat nation christians that have abandoned God and the word of God. They of their own free will voted against everything that was moral and in the Bible. They are without excuse! Any intelligent person knows you are not voting for a person you are voting for a platform. Those christians voted, made a covenant with a left/socialist/communist/anti-christ platform and took an oath with satan by stating that I reject all God stands for and I fully commit of my own free will to stand with the democrat/communist platform that steals, kills and destroys to get in the doors of the government. The blood of the murders of the unborn is on their hands and all the chaos, crimes, burning of businesses, murdering citizens and staged riots at the capital for media coverage to advance the agenda of the deep state left. And now they pick supporting the democrat party fulling knowing the evil agenda and candy coat it with not wanting to lose the youth? I would run like hell to get as far away from the anti-christ cult as I could. I pray they will repent and return to God. We do not have any leaders in Washington, NO PRESIDENT, AND NO Vice President. WE HAVE THIEVES IN THE WHITEHOUSE DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST “KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY” JUST LIKE THEIR FATHER, THE FATHER OF LIES HIMSELF. President Trump won the election and it was stolen by thieves, the anti-christ church and the rhino republicans. It is a blatant in your face coup! No more milk for the church, grown up and eat meat! Everyone has free will! Free will to choose what is right and what is wrong. NO MORE CODDLING CHRISTIANS!

I know a number of adults who support Biden simply because he is Catholic. Whenever someone points out that Biden does not actually follow the tenets of the Catholic faith, they get mad and dismissive of the person telling them. It’s obvious that Biden supports abortion on demand. I do not understand how any Catholic or any Christian of any denomination can support him.

Of course Mario is exactly right! My best friends daughter became pregnant at 15 after many conversations I had had with her mother about the need to teach her kids the need to be “saved” and her comment was “I want them to decide on their own” in reply I said either you teach them or the world will. Her daughter came to me before going to her mother with the devastating news and the Lord was able to use me to lead her in the Sinners prayer. She is a vital Christian young woman now. Praise God! Parents wake up, your kids don’t need you to be their friend they need a truthful teacher.

Mario speaks TRUTH about millennials. Why do we treat them differently? I believe that they can “handle” the truth and are, in fact, looking for truth. There are just too few who will share the unadulterated truth with them. God forgive us for being so timid. It is time to wake up & see what is really happening in America. College professors are preaching lies and that’s the case even in so-call Christian schools. I believe the church is responsible for our condition in America. It is time for the church to preach sin, repentance from sin and call people to humble them selves before the Almighty. The shaking is coming (Hebrews 12:25-29). If you haven’t read this, then you should today. Also read John 6:41-71 paying special attention verses 60,61, 64, 66 (especially when it says “from that time many of his DISCIPLES walked with Him NO MORE”) that’s where we are today & Peter’s reply in v. 68. Choose you this day Who you will serve and if you choose Jesus, then it is going to “cost you” (another “hard saying”, but true). The shaking is coming. Are your feet on the “solid rock that WILL NOT BE SHAKEN”?

We just celebrated Easter, the Super Bowl of Christianity, when our Savior looked death in the face and spit on it. God give us Christians after your heart! No parent names his son after a traitor or coward; but it appears today there is a yellow stripe down the backs of alot of Christian parents. No kid wants that kind of religion anyway.

we as a church are servants of Religion. We have failed to be examples of Jesus Christ and his ways . Churches are pivoting, I truly believe Revelations and the luke warm churches are here.. I Urge every single Christian to pay attention at their chosen church hold your head up HI and tell and speak against, any migration from the pathway set by God’s standards bearing neither left or right. We have got to start right here in our atmosphere . Be strong, use the armor of God speak out and if they do not listen RUN RUN RUN to those that practice what God demands. Do you realized you will be accountable for what they say what you listen to what you do about it…. Eternity is a long time for Jesus to say , who are you , I do not know you, but… I created and helped others, I was a good samaritan,.. many who thought they knew me , thought they did well… be gone I do not know you…… scary thoughts

Amen, Mario! What has happened to the Baby Boomers gumption allowing their children to be the center of their world? These adult children have become idols controlling their parents into wearing masks, getting vaccinated, threatening to withhold contact with their grandchildren, chanting social justice mantras, closing their eyes and ears to discussions of gender confusion, and violating their consciences under the guise of ‘loving your neighbor’. Unless we love the Lord, our God with our whole heart, soul, and mind; He will spit us out of His mouth! How will we face true persecution of our faith, if we can’t stand for righteousness and truth with our own offspring? God, forgive us!

Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, King of Kings, deliver in your righteousness all people, young, old from belief that participating in evil will produce “good”. Lift the fear of saying “no” to sinful acts in every household and every family. Help parents to be wise teachers of the Gospel message so young people know right from wrong, without doubts. Lead parents, and all people to seek Jesus, and be led in their decisions by His teachings.

I pray for revival across our country and the world, Lord. Provide leadership in every human pursuit that reflects Your will in all matters. Thank You Lord for delivering us from evil. Lord, please, “declare Your power to all generations, Your might to all who are to come”. Lord, forgive me for lack of faith, but then, when I remember, You parted the waters of the Red Sea, created the universes, I
know You are in control, and Your will is being done no matter how my frail self sees it. Praise, glory, honor. You are our “Sovereign Lord, our refuge”. With You all is possible. Amen

Only undercover pro-abortion cowards, false teachers, and false converts vote for anti-life people. They will also follow the anti-Christ.

I think that we are on the edge of the cliff as a nation. Only truth, and in love, (even when it is uncomfortable) will help salvage anyone. I’ve been walking this earth for almost 80 years, and while I haven’t seen everything, I’ve seen and experienced a LOT. Smoking dope with your son, because you don’t want to “lose” him, is some of the worst thinking imaginable. Parents are trying to be “buddies” with their sons / daughters… so-called “friends” rather than walk out their God-appointed role as FATHER, or MOTHER, which involves exercising wisdom and authority over their children. The Scriptures are clear about how to bring up children, and some of the issues require discipline and even punishment. To help a child to sin so that his flesh can feel comfortable in the moment, is to become an accessory to the crime. It’s causing these “little ones” to stumble, and there is also a serious penalty for doing this.

    Very well said, Gary! Seems like nowadays, adults are letting the kids make the rules. The boundaries are disappearing. They are being taught that there is no absolute truth. No wonder today’s youth are so confused! Dear LORD, please awaken a hunger and thirst in our youth for TRUTH and that they will find and stand on the solid rock of Christ Jesus!!

      Gary Kosak
      April 12, 2021

      Hi Sharon, You’re right about the boundaries disappearing. In fact, in the case of the Dad smoking dope with his son, shows that within Dad, the boundaries have already disappeared. And you cannot give what you don’t have. Sad for both father and son.

We must speak the truth even at the risk of our children turning away from us. Precious Lord please touch the hearts and minds of our young people that they may be truly “woke” to the truth, the truth in the Bible, the truth about many of our so called politicians, the truth about the good things that President Trump did to improve America, Americas true history, good and bad. May the influence of wickedness be bound that these young folks would be open to hear your real good news about Christ Jesus, His love and sacrifice for us. In Jesus name, amen.

Dear Lord I pray that truth will prevail and it is indeed time to confront a generation that has too much at stake to be coddled and appeased. Parents and other adults/mentors do Not need to destroy them, but love them enought to tell them the truth. Lord Almighty I pray that we can come to know and love truth again in this culture! Give our nation a fear of the Lord and help us to turn back to You! In Jesus name, Amen.

Thank you Mario Murillo! It’s so hard to understand the thinking of some ‘adults’. Our children are having a hard enough time on secular campuses. I had hoped they would have teaching to help them stand up for truth, common sense and Christ! Joshua said, ‘choose you this day who you will serve, but as for me AND my house, we will serve the Lord!’
Oh how I pray Christians would take up the mantel.

Father, we praise you and honor you! Thank you for the anointing in Mario Murillo. Thank you for the impartation he released to others over this past weekend in Nashville. Lord, revival has started and no devil in hell is going to stop it. I pray people will stop complaining and seek you for strength, guidance and ask how they can pray and be used of you to bring change to our youth. Wake your church God! Change can only come when we stand United and ready to fight! In Jesus name.

Amen Brother!

We cannot coddle the youth for the sake of sparing their feelings or out of fear of offending them. Love them by telling them the truth even when it hurts. Lies, coddling and living in fear destroy. The truth illuminates, exposes sin and is the only foundation for relationships.

“The Truth shall set you free”. Go Mario!!

I couldn’t agree more with Mario. We are facing a great evil in the Democrat Party’s policies, and the truth must be told. I pray that more and more pastors will wake up to their duty to inform their congregations rather than sheepishly leaving them on their own.

LORD, we have lost our way, and many have turned away from You, our Creator, to the created. In Romans, You tell us what happens when we do this, oh FATHER, we’ve been given over to a depraved mind, doing things we ought not do… In Isaiah, in the downfall of Judah, You speak of setting children as their rulers, and LORD, we are seeing this too! Please FATHER, forgive us & lead us to truth! Please grant us the fortitude to return to Your word, following Your ways. Lord, we cannot do this without You, You are only hope. And FATHER, please also grant us the courage to speak truth into lives & situations, as we’ve been silent too long. Lord, I ask this the name of Your only begotten & beloved Son, my Savior & Lord, JESUS!

Yes!! Amen..I know a parent who was introducing to drugs by her father as a young girl, she in turn did the same for her kids,allowing them to do drugs and drink. Her dad ran himself over while stoned, and sadly, her teenage daughter overdosed on heroine. Speaking the truth in love is always better in the long run, for the speaker and the hearer..allowing sin has never paid off, it costs EVERYONE in the end as sin gives birth to death.. 🙁

More than at any other time in recent history it is imperative that we speak truth. What is truth? Certainly not what we get from media. The truth has always been and will always be the Word of God. Be strong and courageous. We will be victorious through Jesus Christ the Savior of all peoples.

I’m inclined to think that Christians, who compromise with communists in control of the Democrat Party, will also compromise with the antichrist. The Democrat Party was founded by a member of the Illuminati, which made plans to enslave the world under communism years before Marx wrote his manifesto. By 1983, there were over 240 Democrats in Congress, who had ties to the Communist Party. Congressman Larry McDonald tried to expose this, but they were able to arrange for the N. Koreans to shoot down a whole jetliner with him on board to shut him up. I also believe that every person, who votes for a pro-death politician, will be charged by God on Judgment Day as an accomplice to genocide. Aborticide is genocide. Jesus said that anyone, who doesn’t love Him more than their own family, isn’t worthy of Him. I got a lot of flack from a sister when God called me to do missionary work in New Zealand because she wanted me to help take care of my mother. I told her the best thing I could do for Mom was to obey God. Mom was still alive when I returned over 7.5 years later.

      April 12, 2021

      The reason I know what happened to Congressman McDonald is because he wrote to me and asked me to help him expose the 259 members of Congress, who had ties to the Communist Party. I spent the next 2 weeks praying about what the Lord wanted me to do in response to his request. Unfortunately, he was killed 2 weeks later. On the day his death was reported on TV, my pastor phoned and told me something amazing. He said that the moment he heard the announcement on TV, God spoke to him and said, “Congressman McDonald was assassinated and David knows why.” He phoned to ask what I knew. I told him about the letter he sent to me. He asked me to read it in church in both services the very next Sunday. Over 100 people heard what was in that letter, most of whom are still living today. I was advised to destroy that letter to protect my family and took their advice. About 20 years later, I wished I hadn’t taken that advice.

You are exactly right!! I am very worried about my grandchildren and great grandchildren! Especially those in college! They are getting filled with garbage! Every chance I get I tell them the difference between President Trump and Biden and what the Bible says and what Christ did for them. I pray for each of them daily and that Jesus will lead and guide them but we as parents and grandparents have to lead and guide them as well!!! Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it! 🙏

I pray that the Holy Spirit will guide their decisions and lead them to embrace the Truth, Righteousness, and all things that glorify God. I place them in the hands of Jesus, covered by His blood.

Excellent article. I remember fighting for excellence in the schools and losing. We went to our daughter’s high school awards program. Not one child did not get a reward, even for most improved hair style. It took 4 long hours and was pushing mediocrity. My daughter was the last Valedictorian of her high school. They did away with it the next year. God is a God of excellence. Of high standards. He created everyone of us. To those he gave the ability to be valedictorian, more is required. We are servants first! Every person is precious to God. We get this messed up all the time!

How did this generation become blindly submissive to acting like the Stepford Wives? At least my generation (I’m 66) questioned the establishment, then we became the establishment when we saw the error of our ways. With these kids today, they no longer question – they indiscriminately follow shuffling along with their eyes closed and their arms stretched out in front of them – and willingly fall off the cliff as commanded by their teachers, professors, and the news media, thereby murdering the quiet and peaceable lives we live because we live in the greatest country in the world.

He’s right. We need to boldly proclaim truth. We need to challenge the lies with questions to reveal the logical fallacies. We need to pray and fight the wicked demonic forces behind all the deception. This is truly a war. Christians need to put on the armor of God and get in the fight for the soul of America.

I do not speak with any political affiliation. I speak as a Christian. I will also state that other religions have similar understandings, this I know from my Jewish, Muslim , Hindu and even atheist friends. Again, I speak as a Christian.
In the Bible it says ” Spare the rod spoil the Child”. As a shepherd the rod was used to guide the sheep back on track. No the rod does not mean to beat your young, it is simply you guiding your child in the direction of what is right and away from what is wrong. Being truthful to your children and others around you is your duty as a Christian. God gave us children to raise them and to bring them to Him.
The commandments tell us not to lie. A lie is a sin against God. When we lie to our children they in turn learn to lie and therefore we are responsible for their lies. The Bible also mentions that it is a great sin to teach a child to sin.
The truth will set you free and if you speak in the name of Jesus you will be setting your children free as well. Believe me when I say the truth hurts sometimes. So What? If you do not want to lose your children teach them morals, pray with them, read the Bible with them. Make them enjoy time with you. They will always enjoy being around you, yes even when they are teanagers.
As far as our leaders and their religious values, they simply fail. They brag about their religion but they fail to live it.
As a Christian I believe the first thing a leader must do is refer to the Bible before making any decisions.
Listen to the word of God, and follow the traditions passed down from Jesus. Remember the Last Supper, “do this often in memory of me”. The Bible says this, so why be afraid if you lead a country in the name of Jesus. I am never afraid because Jesus is with me, God is with me.
Endorsing Trump. OK, he was not a very moral man himself. However, he did what he did with the betterment of America and nothing for himself. In fact most of the liberal media loved Trump and were friends with him until he was sick of their disgusting ideas of misleading America. Think about it the media had nothing good to say about him. How is that possible when fleeing immigrants themselves thanked him for stepping up. We needed a radical leader to wake us up and call on God. Most if not all President Trump’s decisions actually were very fruitful for America and the world overall. There was a reason the media did not like him and that was because he was going to reveal the Liberal left and the ways they were controlling YOU. Yes, he talked like a jerk, but his decisions on the laws made factual sense.
We failed as parents to keep the media out of our decisions, we failed to teach the truth in history, the media told us what to think and we like sheep followed them. The lies of the media are controlling us. We did not do our research for the truth and the world power (the media) controlled us. We were lazy and got even lazier when we began to believe in the often said lies of those who want to control us. No this is not a conspiracy this is fact.
If we as Americans don’t get up off our lazy back side the entire world will become our SWAMP. Colleges are teaching extreme liberal thinking. I know this from the recent classes I took. In one occasion, and there were many more. There was a professor telling us about a mission in Africa and she had a friend who did a video presentation about the mission. I was shocked because everything this lady said was not the truth. I know because I was on that mission. My professor asked me to comment and all I could say was the lady sounded believable and spoke nicely. My professor asked for more detail and I shared with the entire class that the lady lied about everything and that I was there.
So the lies are being taught in schools, the media is making us believe that when a single incident occurs it is now happening all over America.
God bless America and may He set us free from the lies of the media and fake leaders.

Mario Murillo is absolutely correct. I am completely baffled seeing and hearing people who call themselves followers of Christ voting for people who loudly proclaim they support the Abortion Industry and want to fund abortions around the world. Jesus Himself said that “you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” Christians, followers of Christ and His teachings, need to proclaim the ‘Truth’ loud and clear. Right Is Forever Right

“God is truth, and all truth is grounded in the character of Almighty God. And any statement of truth is just a piece of the great truth that is founded in the being of God. Mathematical truth, chemical truth, physical truth, truth of thermodynamics, of electromagnetism, truth of the skies, astronomy, truth of the minute microcosmic world; wherever there is truth, it is a reflection of the being of God. Two plus two is four; that is a part of the truth of God. Vice is reprehensible; that is a part of the truth of God. Virtue is commendable; that is a part of the truth of God. All truth is grounded in the character of Almighty God, and when we know the truth we know God, that much of God. And the more of the truth we know, the more of God we know.

There is no such a thing as relative truth, and there is no such a thing as situation ethics; that is, something might be right today, permissively, that was wrong yesterday. There is no such thing as that in the Word of God. What is right yesterday is right today, and is right forever: for righteousness and morality are grounded in the person of Almighty God. It is never what a man says it is. It is never what a legislature says it is. It is never what a judge will define it to be. Righteousness and morality are reflections of the being of God, and God never changes. Right is forever right and wrong is forever wrong, because that is God! ” [email protected]

This sounds like common sense to most of us; but there are, I guess, parents who think that parenting is about winning the approval of their children. If you want to lose complete respect as a parent, then go that route… or you could face the fact that you’re children know almost nothing about life and are looking to their parents for guidance and truth. As usual Mario Murillo is right there with the good stuff. Do the right thing and you will end up with kids who appreciate you and know how to raise their own kids well.

I was driving home one day with my husband and ten year old. We were just talking about his school day, when he started to tell us about all the different colored flags for each sexual orientation. Rainbow flag for the gay community. this colored flag for the transgender community etc… I was shocked. When I asked him where did you learn this-he said in school. This was a huge wake up call for us. We attend church every Sunday. he is in Sunday school. I don’t believe in hate because I feel that that is what drives people away from God, but we must make a stand. We don’t have to hate, but we do need to fight. Fight for what we believe in and fight for our children. Fight for our God. I also believe that love, God’s love is so much stronger than anything this world has to offer. Prayer is our weapon. We must use the weapons that God has placed at our disposal.

      We squashed our first reaction of forcefully reminding my son that those lifestyles are wrong, etc.. Both my husband and I reminded him about what the Bible says and all that he has been taught about God. We did stress to him that people tend to have beliefs that are very different from ours, but what we believe is not wrong and we will always stand on God’s word. We also explained to him that there are people out there that would try to change what he has been taught and what he knows to be true, by telling him that he is wrong and a “hater”. He needs to remember that God loves him. We did stress that he is not to respond with anger or hate-but to always respond with God’s love. We also stressed that he is to let us know if he ever finds himself in these situations so that we can intervene with the school. We do talk about what we see happening on the news and have discussions with him. I feel that open communication with our kids is a huge factor in their listening to us as parents. We can’t shut them down immediately if we don’t agree with what they say. This has helped with our older kids who are in college. Hope this helps-sorry this is so long.

Did I hear you say Pro-Life for Biden? Is that even possible, or just another lie they pretend to believe. I tell anyone everywhere I vote Christian values, I do not pick a certain individual. The platform is the candidate, Democrats are not Pro-Life, they are not Pro-Israel; they are Pro-LBGTQ, not Pro-Christian. They do not identify with God’s-family which is one man- one woman; children. Now it is sex identification. God created male; female created He them. They do not have the right to tell my heart how to be, only God does, & this is what I see as a godly lifestyle according to the holy scriptures which is God’s word. Father in Heaven I ask that you open the eyes of those that seek truth to your words & not a carnal platform. Jesus, you said to see to it that no one deceives you we pray for those eyes In the name above every name Jesus, Amen.

This article is right on! The children of baby boomers (and those younger) Biden supporters!!!! Why oh why!??? My sister and I re totally puzzled. But not really, knowing that their source of information is “fake news” media! So there’s no meeting of the minds when we try to make them see the light! While we are filled with the Word, and information from God-honoring people like Lance Walnau, Gene Bailey of Flashpoint, Mario Murillo,
prophets like Hank Kunneman, they are saturated with FAKE NEWS! They are NOT only Biden supporters! They are FANS of Biden! They point out how well he’s handling the reins of government; how decent and dignified he is unlike Trump; how, unlike Trump, he is NOT about himself, but about the country. This is MADNESS! Although they may be right about Trump’s obnoxious behaviour and communication style (which I’ve refused to blind me to the REAL important issues like the protection of the unborn, religious freedom, the upholding of our Judeo-Christian ethics), that doesn’t warrant the support for abortion, open borders, etc that Biden upholds! They don’t get it! Yes, sad to say, they identify Trump with white conservative evangelicals who, they say, don’t walk the talk. Yes, they identify him with white supremacy and lack of compassion for illegal aliens who have been here for years, in pursuit of a better life, while lauding Biden for his compassion toward these oppressed lot. But what has that to do with Jesus Christ? Why should they turn their backs to Christianity because of Trump? And why should parents of these blind and deceived young generation compromise and take their side just to “save” their children from apostasy? That will NOT help at all. The Gospel is the Power of God unto salvation! NOT coddling them. Confront them with the Light of the Gospel – the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God in the face of His Son, Jesus Christ, and the scales will fall off their eyes!

Thank God for anointed, bold evangelists like Mario Murillo! May God raise MORE of his kind!

Maybe we need to turn billy graham back on into our homes, so these kids can learn the basics of salvation and the cross learn the ten commandments and the lords prayer. Maybe we need to talk about Hell, the judgment seat of christ and the great white throne judgement. Maybe there needs to be ‘actual consequences’ to bad behavior again. Maybe parents need to put MAJOR effort into having an ACTUAL RELATIONSHIP with their children, taking LOTS of time for them and teaching them God’s precepts . Everyone put your phone in the drawer and turn off. Maybe bible reading, prayer and fellowship should come back into the home..families praying together !

Encouraging to know parents and ministers still view youth as having souls that can only besaved by making Jesus Christ Lord and Savior. Anyone who has worked with addicts or been in abusive relationship knows failure to confront sin just sustains, increases pain for all involed. I grieve about many Christians including ministers putting being liked or getting along with everyone above sharing gospel and proclaiming truth from Bible on how people should live. Is it not clear of spiritual battle in progress deceiving Christians to yield to culture by not being angered by rampant immorality? So much of the Democratic Platform violates the 10 Commandments and blasphemes God. Jesus lived in turbulent times and under Roman tyranny. We must speak truth in love and no longer be silent which os allowing so many people to be lead astray. And regardless of who is in office we are commanded to pray for them.

They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly ravenous wolves….,” In your mercy, Lord, send us a great AWAKENING that will “cancel the fake wokeness.” Hear our cry. In they precious name. Amen

What society needs right now is courageous Christians to come forward and tell the truth: A lot of people using the label “Christian” are NOT following the Bible.

Teaching anti-Biblical values that allow people to feel a false comfort of fraudulent redemption…teaching unending grace and permissiveness…redefining sin and leaving out the importance of repentance…is not Christian at all. This practice dilutes the faith and deceives those that are under the false impression of being saved or of what Christianity is. Unfortunately there is an enemy within the church that is attempting to change the very definition of what it means to be Christian – and succeeding. I have personally witnessed many people retain the title of Christian while moving to progressive churches and adopting worldly, progressive values. They are lulled by the safety of a sense of forgiveness and acceptance as they reject the truth and continue to sin openly and unabashedly. They say it is hateful to infer God has instructed that anything is a sin, and that they would rather offend God than people because after all, God will forgive them, and people may not.

As Christians we must be very clear about what it means to be a person of the faith. “Love” is being redefined to mean allowing people to do whatever helps them feel good, whatever indulges the flesh, whatever allows them to keep their social standing among their progressive friends, progressive employers, and progressive schools. They do not see love as following God’s Word. People are carrying such an attitude of entitlement, forgetting they deserve nothing but death for their sin, that they want the easy way – the faith that conforms to themselves and their ever-changing worldliness, rather than the difficult way – the self that breaks and humbles itself to the never-changing will of God.

Sadly, the coddling of children, without the teaching, correcting, provision of guidelines and appropriate disciplining fails to provide boundaries for ethical living in the shifting sand of morality and social media are f today’s children. Desiring a friend relationship rather than the teacher/mentor parent—with its rules/punishment creates a chasm that “wokeism” and social justice ( oxymoron) is all too happy to fill. As Christ followers, we must now be willing to hit the enemy’s schemes head-on. We must stand. We must speak as opportunity provides. We must pray—the clarion call rings loudly. We must lovingly and humbly speak Truth because Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. He is the answer to the chaotic noise, and our prayers move the grace lies. We must not lose heart.

In my opinion, Biden simply does what his democratic left tells him to. He never said anything about the “cancel culture,” ripping down anything they do not understand about history. There are good and bad things
in all history, but it is history. There are some really good books out there about our values and all the things we were taught to believe in – I also believe that God has a plan for us and for the world. I am reticent about talking about what I believe in from “Trump” to what Biden is NOT doing. I don’t want to lose my children or have to defend my beliefs all the time.

Absolutely agree. God is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. When we preach a compromised gospel we are not saving souls. We are deceiving them.

I agree with Mario Murillo completely. I thank God for his honestly. What if the Apostles had stayed home playing video games instead of risking their lives to share the gospel.
I taught high school for 43 years. After retirement I have substitute taught so I am still in touch with today’s youth. When I ask about their aspirations in the last four years, they often do not have any. I ask if their parents talk to them about possible future careers they say no. As the end of the school year approaches, I ask if they will apply for summer jobs they say no- their parents don’t want them to work. Lack of ambition and an inability to think for themselves seems a hallmark of today’s youth in the county where I live.
Very sad.

So thankful for this article! Yes we are losing our kids who say LORD LORD to a false gospel! The full gospel is love with grace, judgment and morality. There are boundaries. Standards. Calls to FOLLOW JESUS, READ and HEED the WORD. REPENT and be saved. These seminaries and “woke” professors and pastors are teaching a false gospel of LOVE, love that tolerates murdr of innocents and the depravity of sexual immorality. They coddle enough to deny the very creation of God in His image: MALE and FEMALE. Satan is doing his best to destroy the image of God. Sadly, he has much of the “church” helping him deceive. Revelation speaks of things that must take place. Obedience to God’s standard and a final judgment are two of those things. Is your name written in the LAMBS book of Life or in the rester of your liberal woke church?

As a born again Christian, it is our only hope to proclaim God’s truth, intermingled with His love to the generations behind us. They must hear truth. We cannot compromise to appease them. We must challenge them to go beyond what the media is falsely proclaiming.

I personally know of several beautiful Christians, that did not want to hear what the left says about abortions, about freedom of speech & religion, about gun control, about the Constitution that our founding father’s appropriated as the law of the land, using the precepts of the Bible to master their ideas. My heart was and is broken for these ones that I dearly love!
And yes I lost my daughter, her husband, and my grandson’s all because I voted for President Trump. Sad isn’t it? I believe that time will prove itself, no matter my pain, my heartbreak.
God’s word is true. I fear for the younger generations, too much internet. Too much not wanting to learn of Jesus, and His truth. I pray, asking God to open their eyes, their ears, their hearts.
Thank you Mario for your pursuit in evangelizing the youth. Praying for a mass revival among them. Praying for you Mario, and those working with you for the souls God loves and treasures. Onward,no matter the cost. It will be worth it all!!!

Mario is exactly correct. It also applies to other relatives. I’m told to “keep the peace”. I will not. When I stand before Jesus, I don’t want Him to ask me why I didn’t tell them the truth. Ask me why I was willing to let them go to hell so I could “keep the peace.”

This was a sad article. Parents are supposed to act like adults and teach and lead their children in what is right and godly. If kids haven’t been given a standard for living, hopefully godly, when they were young, they will flounder and try everything. The parent is supposed to be the leader and head of the family, not the child or children. Give them love with boundaries, discipline, education, so they will have a guideline to base their decisions on.
Let the child be the child, and for their sake may the parent be the adult.
One more very sad happening these days is parents giving into the whims of their who say they want to be the opposite sex. Children will usually grow out of that thinking as they grow up. I could write a story on that with my childhood.
If my parents had raised me and bowed down to my whims to keep me happy, horrors! We would be in a mess.
When I was a child I thought as a child; when I grew up (in my 20s) I thought as an adult.
Today’s kids will do the same if parents will be the adults.

Millennials are not the primary need for prayer among American Christians. The parents and grandparents of Millennials need to be our focus. The lack of leadership and true godliness among our seniors is the cause of the problem with Millennials. Most senior Christians do not spend even an hour with the Lord alone each week, unlike previous generations who thought nothing of spending a day in prayer and praying all night. We are preoccupied with entertainment and pleasure and have little time for effectual fervent prayer. We watch news, movies, You tube Christian performers, but have little or no time for serious intercession.

Okay, lets turn down the heat and frustration a little. First as a Christian my world belongs to GOD not Trump nor Biden. I do not honor men nor their empty words. I do look at the facts and if you don’t like my opinion well I respect that and I respect constructive criticism. I don’t support Trump and I was a republican (now an independent) Locking step with those who cow down just does not sit well with me. I do not support Biden because too much spending and little to no method (outside of increasing taxes) to fund it all is also a bad taste. This Nation will fall apart if we do not stop name calling and fighting each other. The Russians, Chinese, Iranians, and North Korean would love it if we went away. Then they can walk all over what pieces are left and do what they wish to the rest of the world.
Do make changes that fit with the teachings of our Lord. Respect each other and listen, read, observe. Stop getting aerobics by jumping to conclusions. Stop hating those people who do not look like you. Support all of what GOD created and learn to look at others the way you want others to look at you.
I served this nation from 1972 to 1976 active duty United States Army. I have seen how ugly Combat can become. Lost a few good friends to what turned out to be a lost cause. All in the name of Profit ($$$$$). I am not saying that all humans on this rock listen to reason many want all the money and all the power and have serious issues. Just please step back look with eyes wide open, ears listening, and mouth shut.

    I appreciate your comments. Scripture says “God has made of one blood all nations under heaven…” There is only one race: the human race. Politics is not the answer nor the problem with America. It is our sins. God is working though all in authority whether their intentions are good or evil, to bring America to our Knees. If we do not return as a nation to the Lord, we will be destroyed as God did with Israel. They were His chosen, we are not. Certainly, those who are genuine in their faith and walk with God are part of the solution to our national problems, however, they are evidently less than 3% of our population. The millennials are not the only ones being misled. Many senior Christians are believing the lies being published on all sides.

    I’m afraid you may not see the larger ideological issues at play here. I don’t know your reasons for not supporting Trump. When you say you don’t like Biden because of spending, are you aware of what that spending is going toward? The Democrat party today is about erosion of Biblical values in every aspect of society. No prayer, no honoring God’s design for creation, no respecting that God made two genders, or that marriage is a religious covenant between one man and one woman. The Democrats are both watering down “Christianity” to appease those who want to retain the label and also opposing Christianity because socialism & communism need atheism to survive. If progressives continue, Christians will continue to be fired, ridiculed, ostracized from society, and eventually face other persecution and perhaps death for staying true to the Bible. Perhaps you saw last summer that in the midst of riots and Marxist protests, Bibles were being burned. The Bible is being called “hate speech.” This isn’t about higher taxes or who words things better. This is life and death.

Please add these to your list as you question: “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discard among brethren.” (Proverbs 6:16-19). For parents: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). We as parents have a great responsibility to our children. If they don’t learn TRUTH, we cannot blame the Democrats. TRUTH IS STILL TRUTH no matter who is responsible. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23). That would include Republicans as well. What a shock. Being men, all of the Presidents have been a disappointment. All of them are (were) human, and none perfect. We are told to pray for those who are in authority over us. Perhaps that would help make them do better jobs.

This article was riveting. We really do need to be firm with our youth in our stand against the lies, fraud, greed and misinformation being fed them. Tough love works if we have the courage to speak up forcefully . It was a pleasure to hear from Mario Murillo whom I followed with fervor during the early 70’s, and on the Berkeley campus and streets. To see him resurface at this critical time is beyond what I had hoped for. He is on a fresh assignment from the Lord. He was chosen to do an encore of his Berkeley street ministry of several decades ago. Prayers for him will prevail even more fervently now than ever. Lord be merciful to us.

When I share with my 18-year-old grandson the reality of Jesus in my long and varied life (I am 84 and have lived/served in several coutries) he listens and responds; I hear the Holy Spirit in him as he chooses his way forward. We must speak up as we pray.

This article is so very true. Thanks for reminding us of the words of wisdom stated in Proverbs 19:18, “Discipline your children while there is hope, otherwise you will destroy their lives”. Alexander Pope said (in the Seventeen Hundreds), “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree”. Both are so very true. I thank God every day for a Mother who cared enough to discipline her children! It paid dividends!

I agree whole heartedly with Mario Murillo. The truth sets people free. The kids can handle it if it is explained in a loving way and a way they can grasp. Kids cower when they don’t know the truth. It makes them insecure and sheep like. Walk in truth and the whole country is stronger. Don’t just talk about the truth, live it. Young people are looking for examples and heroes to follow. Could that be why the Biden administration, and others like him, are taking History and any Biblical references
(heroes and perspective) out of the public schools. If we don’t learn from those examples, we are doomed to repeat the lessons that should have been learned by having them taught to us right now…before it’s too late

I believe it would be a great and very dangerous disservice to our children to agree with them on something that is evidently a wrong path just because we are afraid of loosing them. Evidently these christian young one have been swayed by the political and not the biblical so parents who need to reclaim their children need to stay firm on the biblical principles and love them enough by sharing the truth within those principles ultimately it is always their decision The youth today are following Biden mostly because of the media successful campaign of dislike toward Trump and they don’t really look at what is at stake here. Evil men of past history have openly said that their success was locked in getting the youth to believe in their lies and that seems to be happening again today, if they have the youth, even evangelicals, they can do whatever they want, a sad prospect So then how can we reclaim the youth? Certainly not by agreeing with them on their faulty thinking but by sharing the true of the Bible and much prayer, a lot of prayer 🙏

It was helpful to me to read the comment of Carol Halma-Davidson. She reported that she prays the following scriptures: Acts 4:12, I Tim. 1:13, and Matt. 6:13. I attempted to share my belief in Jesus with my grandson a few years ago, in a way that I thought was loving and he became very angry. Since that time, I have prayed for him almost daily. Perhaps he has retained some of what I shared but I decided to trust that God would help him see the Truth. My daughter asked me not to discuss my faith with my “other” grandson. I am happy to have these scriptures to pray for “both” of my grandsons and I will search the Bible and include any other scripture that God shows me.

This spot on message isn’t just about millennials. This is about society as a whole. Young people must be taught how to make good, informed decisions. Many parents and adults want to be “friends” with young people and have everyone “like them”, and this is not good for anyone. It is far more important to be strong mentors and role models. It begins with being open-minded, being a good listener, and being a good communicator. Ask people about their opinions and ask them why they think this way. Make them explain their position to you. I have always felt that one of my most important duties as a parent was to raise children that have the skills to be independent adults. I will always be there for them, but they need to know how to weigh the risks and benefits of every decision they make and pray for guidance.

Christians for Biden or the left is an oxymoron! If we as Christians don’t show the younger generation that righteousness is worth fighting for, they will remain deceived and passive to the truth. Instead of their video games and cell phones, they need to be given something of value that they are willing to fight for and even die for. If we don’t show them that the truth and freedom are worth fighting for and even dying for, they will never see the importance of it until it is too late. Coddling them is the easy way out, stand up for what is right!

I totally agree. We are expressly directed by God’s Word to speak the truth. Yes, we are to speak it in love, but like the author said, if we don’t tell them the truth, we are not being loving. Love wins in the end only if it is serving the truth! There is a day of reckoning for everyone.

Delmer Harris
April 10, 2021

There is so much to say because of the depth of what being done in the current political realm. Here are some bullet points to consider:
*forget about defending Trump or defaming Biden–it is not about them.
*forget about labels, especially the Evangelical one which the World has made a pejorative.
*Wear and defend Christian. A true Christian is evangelical in the proper sense of the word. Believers are told to do three principal things: Love God, Love one another, Share/tell others/spread the Word (which is to evangelize). One cannot be a Christian and be a “closet” believer.
*There is inadequate space to show the policies of the Progressives are anti-Christian, starting with the obvious Abortion; but it is much deeper than that. The list is long, but putting Science and Government ahead of or equal to God; elimination references to God in public places; the attacks on churches; the denial of the family as the base for society; the genderism programs flying in the face of man/woman; denial of personal pronouns; denial of basic freedoms; denial of Creationism even as an option for study; denial of the Judeo/Christian roots of the founding documents that are loaded with biblical references; their assumption that we can decide our own Truth as opposed to accepting any absolutes; their assumption that mankind (peronsonkind?) can destroy the planet that God created instead of knowing that the same God can heal any aspect that needs healing with the same breath with which God created it–that it will end when God determines it is time for the New Heaven and New Earth. The list goes on, but Christians must stand of faith in the written Word and defend those who stand by it and reject the policies that do not line up with biblical teaching. Keep faith in the living Word not in any earthly individual or governmental system or ever-changing scientific theory/theories or labels other than Christian. Stand strong to the end is the prayer for us all.

The bible says, “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down but not destroyed.” 2 Cor.4:8-9 This gives us hope, and when we look back a few years, who is responsible? I believe we and the church have had blinders on and ignored what was happening all around us. I pray that our younger generation will come to their senses and see the truth in where Biden is taking this country. This scripture I pray, “Eternal Truth, expose the lies told by false religions. Reveal to their followers that salvation is found in Jesus Christ, the only name under heaven by which we are saved. Carry the weak and vulnerable to spiritual safety. show mercy to those who have acted in ignorance and unbelief, and deliver them from the evil one.” Acts 4:12; 1 Tim. 1:13; Mt. 6:13 In Jesus Name, Amen.

    A good amount of that struggle can come from progressive friends & employers (social pressure). I definitely recommend creating some “distance” in those relationships/exposures where possible as that has helped me. Even getting away from certain media outlets and instead focusing on getting more into Bible study and learning history to get an accurate view and be able to combat the worldly influences.

    They justify it by saying they are being merciful since the child could suffer if it’s born unwanted, poor, etc. Also that someone who has an unplanned shouldn’t have to live with a lifelong consequence, whether raising the child or living with the emotional aspect of placing a child for adoption. It’s a very twisted way of not addressing the causes of sexual immorality, broken households, etc. which all stem back from a lack of communities, families, and individuals not following Biblical Christian principles. I’ve seen many people deceived by this reasoning.

It is absolutely necessary to teach our children the dangers of the world. Stop with the soft love, tough love when they get to high school is absolutely necessary. It will be much easier for them to deal with that tough love than the reality of thsi very dangerous secular world. They need it and you can always bring them home, greet the like the prodigal son was welcomed if they are ready for the tough world out there.So many examples in the Bible attest to this. Read it, share it with your grown, almost grown children. When they are 40, they WILL thank you.

My Pastor, God Bless him, always wakes us up with the lies that are being told on MSM.

I know so many good and real Christians with whom I share the stage with when playing music on Sunday mornings who are Biden supporters and it’s usually not because they’re pro Biden, but because they’re anti Trump. As long as these people are watching MSM, involved in pop culture, etc., they’re getting a massive daily dose of liberal indoctrination that’s very difficult to overcome at home or in church.

We see the truth when we read and watch our subscriptions and programs, but they don’t see it. And because of this, issues like global warming and wearing a mask rank among the top of the stack of important issues.

Biden is like Adonijah who “MADE HIMSELF” King and then Solomon was really supposed to be king and David had to right the wrong. “Solomon” IS and will be back!

Perhaps this started WAY before the millennials.(Satan, the destroyer). Society is deteriorating. The enemy is raging. Every generation can look at the break down of the next. Instead of rebuke let there be discipleship. Instead of accusation let there be training. Let’s ask the Lord to begin to lay someone from the generation below us on our hearts to take under our wings. That’s Biblical (Titus 2). Soap boxes never change people. The blood of Jesus, His presence and power changes people. The Living Gospel. We need the church to wake up, whomever is left in it.. About 50% dropped off in the last 12 years!
Let’s be intercessors who hear what God speaks and let’s move!
Let’s come alongside the one walking in fear and sin, let’s pray and speak words of eternal life into them. They need the truth brought to them in love and through relationship and investment in their lives. We need our young people to be encountered by the Living God! The Man Christ Jesus; the One waiting to return for a spotless bride. A bride United in love. He wants to partner with us to break the power of darkness over a generation, and Shepherd their hearts.

In our ministry each young person or young each couple has an assigned mentor who gets in their lives, and builds report to guide and lead them in the truth of the Word. It’s time consuming and draining, but it’s rewarding. Some stay the course, some return to their own way, but we have arms wide open to them, and we continuously point them to the cross, and to the Bridegroom King, Jesus.
It’s part of the Great commission… Share the gospel and make disciples. Matthew 28: 18-20 We can do it. I pray that the Lord raises up the older generation as one who lay their lives down to disciple the younger generation.
Galatians 6:1-2 (NASB) Brothers and sisters, even if a person is caught in any wrongdoing, you who are spiritual are to restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you are not tempted as well. Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
In Christ love,

    Amen! I am an older millennial and what pushed me away from church was a church people who sang the praises of Jesus and talked about serving others and going after that 1 sheep, and yet, the people were too busy with their own social circles and things to do to recognize that I as a teenager was hurting and needed to be discipled. Even since I have come back to Jesus, I find it’s hard to hang out with Christians. They always have their own social groups already set and are too busy to hang out or come serve. And this is true of both conservatives and liberals. How many conservative pro-life Christians do you know who will actually go outside to pray at an abortion clinic? I do and I have three kids so the idea that someone doesn’t have time is a lie. I know many Christians who say they are for this or that, but when it’s time for the rubber to meet the road, they don’t want to sacrifice the time and energy. I recently lead a friend to the Lord and I’m discipling her. I constantly have to keep her in prayer or she will cancel on our appointments to study the word, or she will not pray daily because she gets weighed down by her problems. It’s exhausting to pray that much when I have three kids to care for too, but she is my responsibility to pray for. When individual Christians are willing to lay down their time, their money, their convenience, in some cases their lives, we will see changes in Millennials. There is nothing God cannot do with a praying church who sacrifices for discipleship and truth. It’s the wanting to make someone see your point of view without doing the work to sacrifice for them that is not working in my opinion.

It appears to me that Biden supporters who call themselves Christians don’t believe the gospel – or much of anything else in the Bible. Their god may look more like Santa Claus than the Lord Jesus. They would not behave as described if they really knew the realities of sin and eternal damnation and the wonders of our Lord’s crucifixion, burial, and resurrection. Maybe those parents as well as their children need to SEE, HEAR, and ENCOUNTER the gospel. However, if we glower at sinners because they act like sinners, are they likely to be willing to hear anything we have to say? Lord, open our eyes and teach US how to show Your power, Your truth, and Your love. Teach us how to show YOU!

I agree with Mario Murillo. I used to wonder about the scripture where Jesus says, “depart from me, I never knew you.” I don’t wonder anymore! There are many who call themselves Christians that either haven’t read God’s Word, or simply don’t know Him! God’s Word has the answer to ALL these problems: Socialism, rebellion, lawlessness, hatred, political correctness, wokeness, etc. Christians should have no part in those things and they should have the courage to speak out against them, but many are not.
We have an administration in power now that has ungodly policies. I can’t believe any Christian would support what they are doing.
Christian parents and grandparents have to be the “salt” and “light” to their children and others. It is THE TRUTH that sets people free! Some pastors in the pulpits have not done their jobs. Unfortunately, many pastors are too afraid of offending people and we are seeing the consequences of it right now! God will not hold us blameless! It’s not going to be easy, but neither was the cross our Saviour died on!

This is so unfortunate. Many people who say that they are Christians have allowed the radical socialists to deceive them into believing that their way of doing things is right. Lord Jesus, wake Your children up to reality! Show the young people of this nation the falsehood that is being thrust upon them, that the radical socialist agenda is wrong and evil. This nation is so in need of Christians that are wiling to take a stand against the socialist, Satan-influenced evil that is being thrown out there at them. The days of being wishy-washy, cultural Christians who are only lukewarm in their faith, needs to be over. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Good for you Christalle! You obviously are following the principle of discipleship – planting the seed, putting in the time to disciple the person, and Holy Spirit will produce the harvest. May each of us be as diligent in carrying out the Great Commission. Your own children are witnessing your diligence and it will rub off on them.

    I remember watching my father minister to the poor and this has certainly affected my willingness to do so as adults. If we truly love our children and grandchildren, we will tell them the truth about Jesus, Heaven and Hell, and their need for salvation while there still is time.

Amen! The Church of Jesus needs to wake up and unite as a whole, one body, speak TRUTH like Jesus did in His day. His message was not popular but it was TRUTH! Can you imagine having to fight this spiritual battle we are in today with watered down scripture and trying to make people feel good? Where would we be? There would be no more freedom in the USA! I pray for scales to be removed from eyes and Holy Spirit give us ears to hear and eyes to see your heart for our day!

    I know many older Christians who voted for Biden. They told me Trump was wrong for the country and I disagreed with them and asked them y they think Biden is better. The only thing they could say was Trump was a liar and mentally incompetent. I told them they r accusing Trump of what Biden has actually revealed.
    My prayer is for these older Christians to come to know the truth and to stop listening to false narrative. In Jesus’Name. Amen☦️

      I no longer try to argue them out of their TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). I ask them if they believe the New Testament. When they say yes, I mention that a huge amount of it is attributed to Paul. Then I remind them that Paul was once a terrible sinner, but he changed and that by their measure, there would never have been a Paul…people would have insisted that Saul be branded for his past. Then I tell them to evaluate people by their deeds, not what others say about them. Also, that God often uses unlikely people for His purposes to confound the “wise”. This approach has stopped several people in their tracks.

The sad situation today,is parents don’t want to be parents, they want to be their kids’ friend. Anyone who thinks these kids are still Chritians, are kidding themselves. The democratic platform is not Christian; it’s about as far away from Christianity as you can get, and any parent, teacher, pastor or other who thinks they can keep their kids by giving in to this, are being led by Satan, not by God.

Why would people condon sin with their children. Because they dont want to lose them ? How foolish. Do they think about losing them for eternity in hell as well as losing their own soul.The parents are to blame for not teaching their children right from wrong when they were growing up. Parents didnt take the time to teach them the word of God.They didnt take them to church because church wasnt important to them..Not only that but the churches were & still are going away from the true word of God. People didnt want to hear about hell & sin. They wanted to hear what made them happy & condomed what they were doing.The parents passed that on to their children. Parents will have to stand before God as well as their children because they didnt take time to teach their children the truth. Not only that but the parents & many of the churches dont teach about Jesus & him cruified. That he shed his precious blood for all men. They have rejected Jesus the only begotten Son of God.parents have spoiled their children. When they become older the parents condom what their children do so they dont lose them.they dont know themselves the word of God so they just go with the flow to make everyone happy. There are many parents out there that drink with their kids so the kids will drink @ home & not out somewhere, but they still drink out with their friends The break down of the American family. They play right into the hands of satan.People do whats important to them.If a person says they are a true born again Christian they Wont support Biden. If they do they are also guilty of the murder of innocent babies. Plus many other dispictable sins the Biden administration has & is putting into law. All going against God & his word. Not everyone out here is as stupid as our Govt. Thinks we are. God said pray for your enemy’s. Prays for all that dont know God & His Son Jesus.our country is in deep trouble. I believe God is putting his judgement on America for the sins of man. We need a deep repentence in our country. AMEN

Amen! There is no fear in Christ Jesus. We have to be honest with our children/grandchildren and stop fearing losing them. If we don’t speak the truth we have already lost them. We speak the truth in love, it may be rejected at first, they may get angry but we surround them with our faith love and prayers and truth will prevail.

If I loose the ability to speak with them how will I persuade them? The are adults, in their 50’s and were turned off by Trump because of the bad press he got. Trying to reason with them becomes an argument that leaves everyone distressed and hurt. I’m at my wits end.

    Jan,
    We were running into the same issue. We began to pray for God’s direction and as we were led, we shared with them on issues rather than people and what the Word teaches us about those issues. We are starting to have more conversations. The Lord is moving on their hearts as they continue to learn things through the knowledge of truth. May the Lord grant us all wisdom to be led up by Him and speak as He leads us, as we share the hope that is within us. Praying with you for hearts of conviction.

Thank You Jesus for raising up Mario Murillo for such a time as this. Protect him and his ministry LORD. Magnify his voice as he speaks truth in Your power.

I pray You give him a great harvest of souls in Modesto, California, when his tent meetings begin April 18.
May the fire of Your Holy Spirit fall and spread throughout the state and across the nation in the Third Great Awakening.
I ask that the conviction of sin and righteousness and the fear of the LORD come powerfully on both believers and unbelievers, especially the Millenials who have been deceived. Set them free and deliver them from the lies they have believed.

May signs, wonders, and miracles of healing accompany Mario’s preaching to confirmYour Word and demonstrate Your power.
I ask all this to be done in the name of Jesus Amen.

It’s called, “go along to get along”. Another one is, “agree to disagree agreeably”.
Like so many other catchphrases, both are DESTRUCTIVE!
I’M A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN. I could never support Pres. Biden in any way, shape, form or fashion. Which brings me to my point.
I call those who support Biden pseudo-Christians. America is chock-full of them.
I’m talking about the type of Christian that goes to church, but has never really gone to Christ.
There are a multitude of reasons why people call themselves Christians.
God gives us one reason whereby we may call ourselves Christian.
That reason. As an individual we have gone to and accepted Christ as our Savior!
If you’re a True Christian, you’re probably taking someone to heaven with you. Right?
Sorry but I cannot support pseudo Christianity anymore that I can support Joe Biden.

my thoughts
April 10, 2021

Many churches are losing membership because they are not “Biblical” enough. This washed-down prosperity-type of Christianity does not work because it is not God’s Word. Our Lord is very clear; you are either for Him or against Him. I want to see a difference in my life. Even our Lord said believers in Him would be considered “peculiar”! Truly, being a part of the “church of Laodicea” is present in our society, and that type Christianity just doesn’t hold up, especially with the problems we face in this day and age. But too many churches bend to society because of money, popularity, or acceptance.

As for a leader, I want a President that follows God Word, or at least attempts it. The approval of abortion, and NOT supporting Israel is against God’s word.

They are not open to ideas or instruction. I pray everyday they will wake up and see the truth. It will take time and more prayer I guess. it is so true that they need to be aware. I am praying for a Third Great Awakening for the youth. They are a lost generation at this point.

Pastors need to stop being politically correct and start being Biblically correct. Present all Biblical truths, don’t pick and choose, preach against sin, not compromising, and leave the consequences to the Lord. They need to be awakened from their stuper, and be bold, hunger and thirst after righteousness. Fear God, not people. Parents, and all of us who proclaim Biblical truth need to do likewise. Christians need to be in the Word and to live it out! We are on the fast track of a slippery slope. We need to pray for fresh wind, fresh fire, an anointing that only comes from the Lord.

This article speaks so loudly to me as a man who will be 30 this July. I’ve wondered how I could reach some of the people around my age and younger (as well as older) without being demanding and offensive or any of that, and the answer that I have come to find is LOVE. The power of love in the Holy Spirit breaks through lies, it is not by our own might or actions, but by HIS TRUTH, that millennials will see and learn and get saved and teach the generations to come about the Truth of the Word of God. HALLELUJAH!!!

As a mental health/trauma counselor who teaches Christian counseling, my concern is that some in my church use scriptures to beat up traumatized seeking or new believers. Condemnation is being wielded through rules and regulations instead of loving and sensitive growth and teaching for those needing the milk of the word. Due to a lack of love and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit in fiery would-be evangelists, I see a whole Pharisee movement poised to bring condemnation. People who have been physically and verbally beaten, abused, and put down all their lives are coming to church and getting more of the same emotional abuse. Lord, save us from the self righteous and teach us to minister the truth in love and compassion.

I disciplined my 4 children, now 52, 54, 56, & 58! All share the same beliefs, voted for TRUMP for the beliefs Trump has! We are now facing huge consequences due to lack of discipline and the extreme left, college professors brain washing minds of future generations! GOD ALONE I SEE AS UNDOING THIS CHAOS ONLY! PRAYERS!

Dear Heavenly Father, this idea that the younger generations are incapable of walking a righteous path is just one of the many lies that we must all rebuke. The current struggle seems to me very much one of truth versus deceit. As the author of this article wisely asserts, we must “Love them enough to tell them the truth, and do not destroy them!” Lord, I am sure any who bother to read my shared prayers have noticed over the last year how often I quote Isaiah 5:20, a verse I know you directed me to when I began to awaken to the true crisis of our time, but I think this current conversation is an excellent time to expand on that and remember Your truths expressed in Isaiah 5:20 – 24. These are such timely words of wisdom:
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Dear Lord, forgive us our failings in mentoring the younger generations and may we find the clarity, wisdom, and moral courage to right some of the wrongs we may have done, whether intentional or unintentional. May we as a nation embrace Your word, Your laws, and Your advise. May we stop coddling youth and instead teach them truth, courage, and values. May we turn them away from materialism and mind-numbing technologies and instead turn them to Your teachings. Lord, I fear that a growing number of the younger generations are losing a sense of right and wrong. Afraid to scratch their knee or go in public without a mask, they at the same time grow increasingly obsessed with the pursuit of pleasure and protection from the uncomfortable, to include ideas that challenge them. Lord, I also believe that many of them are losing, or growing up without, their sense of empathy for their fellow man and animals. Dear Lord, please grant us the courage and wisdom to push back against these wicked trends and help our youth. Through You all things are possible and I suspect that behind the eyes of even the most “conditioned” of our youths, there is still a deep thirst for truth and revelation. May we actively seek every opportunity to plant the seeds that will bloom in their own salvation. In Jesus precious name I pray O’ Lord, Amen.

My six children have been brought up with conservative values in a Christian home. I am trying to understand why my son who married a liberal Democrat has adopted his wife’s values and quite liberal mindset, to the extent that their children, ages 7 and 9 decide where and what to eat, where they will go on vacation etc. My grandsons are quite intelligent, but lack any sense of responsibility. Is that the liberal way of raising children?

Mario is the best in your face evangelist for the Lord. He tells it like it is and wins more to Christ than any of the Pastors in clubs that call themselves churches. The word is very clear to train up a child in the way he should go. Parents neglect to imprint God by their lifestyle. Our example of bowing to every whim that comes down the path leads to death. What has happened ? Chasing the almighty dollar in exchange for their lives. How important is the biggest house, the latest car when your child takes their life? God doesn’t see color. Learn to look out of the eyes of Jesus,

I am concerned that many pastors are ignoring our changing culture situation. They teach “we should only love, not be devisive”. But speaking about God’s view on a nation’s sin of abortion, or our forefathers quest for freedom to worship IS showing them love by way of truth, just as Mario said. They can handle it–just as well as we did as young people. If they then choose differently, then that will be between them and their Maker. Our job is to speak, then pray for the Holy Spirit to water it and bring it to fruition.

Good summary! Satan tempts us with the choices of licentiousness and apathy on one end(glory to Satan…) and self righteousness and perfectionism on the other (Glory to self…also glory to Satan!) Many churches have focused on “softening the Bible” to make it more palatable. What an insult to the GOSPEL!! Jesus told us Matt. 10:35…He came with a sword, John 8:32..that truth sets free, and Eph.4:26…that in our anger we should not sin. Satan makes headway anytime we focus on pleasing people rather than pleasing God. May our pulpits be alive with messages that convict and equip us to walk in BOTH grace and truth!

The words pro-life Christian and Biden or Democrat do not belong together. How can a Christian believe in MURDERING a God-given child entrusted in a woman for growth and safety? If we don’t teach our youth the WHOLE TRUTH we lose them in a furry hell come Judgment Day. What is more important? The inspired Word of God must be taught to our youth. Who on earth wants to know his children will burn for all eternity and not teach them salvation? I don’t understand.

This article is so right! Since July 2019, I’ve hosted a Monday morning Free Conference Call. We pray for Truth on the Street for “those who come after” us, especially Millennials and Z’s. We started by praying for each of the 7 mountains and have added special emphasis to revival, the Bride of Christ, finding our own voices, fathers taking their places of leadership in the home, and other things. Though we are not a healing group, God has blessed us with some miraculous healings. It is a joy every Monday to be in His Presence together. We have prayed often for Mario and are so excited about the move of God gaining strength in our country. Thank you for posting this article. It thrills my heart!

We can’t serve 2 masters. We must be PARENT enough to tell our children the TRUTH in LOVE.

We have to LOVE enough to say the truth! One evening I understood, “They chose Saul.” Our brothers & sisters in Christ chose “Saul” because they didn’t like Trump’s irreverence with the press and they wanted a President who sounded more Presidential. But, just as the Israelites, they did not fully consider the ramifications of their decision. They didn’t consider that Biden stood for murdering the unborn they just wanted anyone but Trump. Now, look what the choice is doing to this nation!
We must forgive and pray for them that they will know the Truth and be set free from the deception of the enemy.

Surely this generation that’s smoking these lies don’t stand a chance if we don’t start with local elections and all up.. and get these people out. Big tech.. we have to stop supporting them.

I find it interesting the issue is perceived as being Trump.

First off the issue is Jesus Christ & following him!!!!

Satan, the news media, and the Democrats have done an amazing job of conning the kids and just for the record and many of that adults. Ah, but please remember kids and adults are easily conned. I was when I was a kid and certainly have been at times as an adult.

As Christians, we need to have the courage, to tell the truth, and speak against the lies, and risk “losing” the kids. God will lead us to love, confront & persued the kids. Let’s trust him.

I’m asking a group of men to join me in getting on our faces and praying for revivals like Charles Finney did. Please study the corrupt times in history when Finney preached and see what God did. God saved millions! God is so much more powerful than corruption!

Care to join me in praying for revivals? Ah, there is a huge cost to doing this. We must confess our own sins and turn from our own wicked ways first.

God bless,

    Exactly the issue. Politics is NOTHING but divisive and not the topic we should be on. Jesus. Period. I absolutely hate demonic Beijing Biden and cannot speak about politics with anyone who disagrees with me without chopping them off at the knees. How will that help change their (or my) eternal destiny. Paul and the rest of the apostles did not preach about Nero or anything about the government of their day! (They didn’t necessarily obey their government either… OR they wouldn’t have ended up dead … Paul was beheaded, Peter crucified, etc. They were preaching Christ. I love that you getting a group of men together and praying. Someone said that the nation is only as strong as the church, the church is only as strong as the family, the family is only as strong as the father. That right there will tell you what’s wrong with this nation. Blessings on your group of men!

I completely agree with all that you’ve said. If we have to place blame, it would be my generation of mothers and fathers who also brought in all this “wonderful” technology that became our God. No one engages in conversation anymore, rather texting to speak. No more written word in letters or thank you cards. We all have allowed this to happen so our little boys and girls would have a “better life”. We’ve all been blinded and duped by the ruler of this world.

Is there hope? I believe so otherwise God would have wiped us out a long time ago. Believe it or not, we are a chosen generation that needs to stop playing church and get out of our comfort zone. We no longer can use age as an excuse, lack of education or any other excuse we can conjure up. God is waiting for His bride to rise up! Thank you Father for your grace, mercy and love. We’re not done but just beginning!

Wonderful article. Absolutely true….. My family is dealing with angry Adult children too. I admit I don’t talk politics any longer. It always ends up in poorly. They can’t or won’t admit to the good President Trump has done.

This could be expounded upon to include the marriage between Eastern mysticism and Western psychology.

The people who grew up in the late 60s and 70s were so caught up in free love, remember that? Yet, a divide of consciousness began that Christianity didn’t exactly handle precisely or as encouraged by the Bible. No it became the hippies against the squares, Motown against folk music, and dropping out and tuning in. That generation begot a new generation of telly tubbies and new age television babysitters. Embracing lies for God’s word became the new whisper in our ears asking, “Did God really say” it like that or did it really mean this? And there were no coherent answers coming out of the church because they might lose their tax exemption.

So for the last 40 to 50 years people have chosen the lie over the truth. That is the deep sleep that has come over us.

Of course there were God fearing people among us. But many were overbearing without love to go with it. They pointed fingers if judgement without reconciliation. They were wise in their own eyes and didn’t know how to rescue the wounded with love, not did they recognize children being trafficked and traded around the corporate elite that was growing a mind of its own pretending to be philanthropic to humanistic causes.

Political agendas, correctness and doctrines of demons were pushed to the forefront of the daily news that we revered as the all knowing God of enlightenment.

That’s a whole generation of acceptance for the unholy Trinity that is the cabal of our day … and the people didn’t or wouldn’t THINK for themselves. They wanted your opinion or an ungodly therapist who put the blame anywhere other than where it belongs. “How does that make you feel?” they asked. You’re in need of some self awareness and for goodness sake you can be like god yourself.

Lord God Almighty, this is what we need deliverance from. Equip us, who know you, to do better. To love without exception not to cave under societal pressure of acceptance towards reprobate ideologies. If we are to see the millennial generation saved it will have to be under the power of the holy Spirit giving wisdom we didn’t understand before now. Yes, turn the hearts of the father’s back to the children and make them the spiritual heads of their homes. Remove the feminist curse from among men and make us make and female once again according to our own kind.

Give us love and patience without condescension or personal judgement. No, let the love of God be seen and emanating from our hearts and our souls. Amen.

I totally agree with him. People need the truth, and yes, Pilate, there is truth and you were looking at Him face to face when you asked that question. The Bible is full of THE TRUTH and every age needs to be learning from it. The framers of our American constitution knew that. See Titus 2:11-14for how to live in the present age.

I remember as a child thinking and questioning my Mom that I knew that something had changed in the mid 60s. It had! ! After prayer was taken out of public schools the thick veil of deception was dropped over our nation while the multitude slept. Within a decade Abortion was legalized and I didn’t even know what it was. The wheat and tares started growing together. The lies, materialism, consumerism, etc grew exponentially along with the evil spirits of pornography, and immorality.The” if it feels good” movement moved into every area of culture including the Church where the spirit of religion (especially in the mainlines) told us to do our duty, but Truth and power, and Jesus as a Savior? Who paid an awesome price with His suffering and Blood,? And much less Holy Spirit, the convictor with Truth and Power given to guide, and heal!
. Adults were confused as they had come through a Great Depression and been thrown into a huge World War and then Korea. I actually remember being told by an adult when I was 19 that he envied our generation; that we had the answers and we were so lucky that we could sleep around with anyone until we found the right one! . There was no more right or wrong and it was becoming tangible. The snowball had started rolling.
There was an awesome movement of God that swept through our area in the early 70s but it didn’t stay. Grounding didn’t happen for many.
We are seeing the consequences now. Free love lead to the breakdown of Families. Folks chasing after the lie of next best thing, Hollywood confirming our flesh thru media and entertainment. The family didn’t withstand the onslaught, so many without Fathers in the home. The twisting of the American Dream by making it a material idol to be chased after at all costs, the great lie that Gods Word can be used anyway we want to use it to assuage our consciences. The consequences are heavy. The bondage of guilt, shame, and sin can only be handled by a mighty God, a merciful Redeemer! Praise God! Jesus Christ paid for all of it! I love thinking that He came in Grace and Truth! Not just one or the other but both! ThankYou Pastor Marillo and many others who are leading that way to heal and lead many out of sin! Delivering the grace of Mercy but the truth in love! May God Bless you mightily!

Thank you for coming out and calling a spade a spade. No, I don’t believe you can be a Christian and embrace the Democratic ideals anymore – and we need to pray for more people to see this. The god of this world has blinded so many. I have actually heard people that justify supporting the Democrats by claiming “Jesus would have been a socialist”. No, Jesus didn’t tolerate sin – period. Paul told the Thessolonians, “if you don’t work, you don’t eat”. There is nothing in the Word of God that supports anything in the current Democrat agenda. We need to continue for blinded eyes to be opened and that that light shine through the darkness.

Wow! I’ve been struggling with this with my daughter and a good friend of mine. We both have 2 children. We both have one woke and one seeking the Lord. Both woke children have served the Lord wholeheartedly in the past and are intelligent and passionate. And then something happened insidiously that I wasn’t even aware of and I had a Christian adult child saying things like pro-life isn’t the only issue! My friend has chosen to be quiet as to not “lose” his child where we have begged God to give us the words to express the Truth in love in a way they can hear. It is not popular. But we will not lose our children to Satan because God has already won the victory. Our friend ridicules our efforts and continues to coddle. They spend a week as a family and spent most of the time trying to reconcile the siblings relationship without addressing the real issue. Sad. Oh Lord wake us up! Speak to our children. Remove the scales from their eyes. Thank you Mario for this timely article and words of encouragement.

Thank you, Mario, for getting in our faces! Truth hurts, yet if we don t press in & pray we continue to lose another generation! I grew up during the sexual era. It was awful& the church did not have a clue what to do. Same programs but nothing about Jesus as Lord of our life. A few did battle but mostly in their own strength. My spirit aches for our country&youth now. Do we suit up for battle in the power of Holy Spirit or let Satan have his same old way…fear? Lord help us!

I agree on the heartiest terms. But I have to say we all share blame. In 1972, while in the Air Force, A Jimi Hendrix concert was held in Denver. Many young impressionable airmen were asked to compliment the security force. We were told point blank not to do anything if we saw someone smoking pot unless they were a danger to themselves or others. So, like a frog in a pot of cold water, we have tolerated sin as the burner has been gradually turned up, until we’re now close to losing a generation and getting cooked ourselves. Sadly, along the way, we have also tolerated the erosion of the value of Family and life itself. Violence and aberrant sex on TV and the movies, and the murder of over 60 million beautiful babies is proof. As this 74 year old sees it, there is only one answer to this dreadful mess. Jesus. Not the democrats or republicans. Only Jesus. That’s my litmus test going forward.

Thanks for some clarity as to why some Christians would support this administration. It is hard to understand unless they compromise God’s word to placate man. Standing with evil and not against it to save one’s skin or reputation or job has never worked throughout history and will never work now.

The body of Christ has failed to keep the Main thing the Main thing. It must deeply break the heart of our Lord.

“Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?” Psalm 94:16

Awesome and Amen!! I had to share recently with my millennial son that Jesus is the Only way!! He was thinking that everyone can choose their own version of a “higher power”. I’m so happy I did tell him the truth because I love him and do not want him going to hell. We have a great relationship. They will respect you for speaking out about what you believe and it will work in their hearts eventually through prayer!!

Powerful, true, and so imperative! This generation has been lied to for too long. Truth is absolute, and we need to demonstrate to impressionable young people why truth is able to be discerned, how it’s impossible for contradicting ‘truth claims’ to be true, why Christianity has intellectually satisfying evidence, and why it’s imperative not to compromise with the agenda of the left.

The Church will not address current political and issues, and Pastors will be held accountable.

If Jesus were making the rounds today do you think he would address the issues of the day?

    I left a church that cared more about appeasing both sides than proclaiming truth. I have thankfully found a church where the pastor boldly speaks truth from the pulpit and a youth pastor who does the same. If your church compromises the truth of the Bible in favor of political correctness, leave that church. If you stay, you’re part of the problem.
