The way forward for you and your Christian children is trusting God as your “authority of truth”, and the Bible as the written record of that Truth. You also need to take the lead role in teaching your children this trust. God promises are to you. You have no control over your Church or your leaders; but you are able to control your ability to receive God’s promise of an inheritance of faith for your Christian children. This is a job meant for two [father and mother], but one will do. I pray that your Church will come alongside you and I feel certain that most will. Look at Hebrews 3.10 and ask yourself “will this be said of you and your Christian children’s generation”?
Heb 3:10 Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.’ Heb 3:11 As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest.’ ”
The truthfulness of God is the very essence of an immutable and infinite God. God never becomes better either morally or truthfully, and He never becomes more merciful or less merciful. God does not learn as time goes by. There is no ancient world or modern world in God’s way of thinking. God does not misunderstand today’s modern world, and the Bible did not just speak to the ancient world...even though the Bible is an ancient writing. God is as near to each Christian child today as He was to Moses and Job in the ancient world. The truths of the creation spoken of by Moses and Job are the same truths for creation today. Eternal life has always been of and from an eternal God.
Ps 119:151 But you are near, O Lord, and all your commandments are true.
Tt 1:2 in hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised before the ages began
