Good day everyone
This is my 1st post, and it's a diffrent one. OK, in a nut shell one of our twin sons is into Wicca. We were hoping it was just some kind of teen rebellion but it seems he really likes it and will go out in the woods and do his "nature rituals" and such.
So my wife and I are faced with a choice, ask him to leave to house and find his own place as soon as he's done with High School or stick to our life-time plan and let him stay home while he goes to college?
Our background is S. Baptist born again and have lived our faith. Kids went to Church 3 times a week plus Awana (both making it to pioneers) since birth so they are not ignorent of the Lord, one just chooses to turn away.
I'm currently on a year tour in Korea so wife has to deal with this until I return home in May
Good day Everyone!
I always find it profitable to update things from time to time and see what happened. Most people on any board just post a problem then fade away.
So where are we 7 years later? Well, like some people responded the kids have found their own way. The Wicca was indeed a Phase that was easily replaced by a girl friend then Video games...now work. We have excellent communication and he's doing well, though not spiritual. His brother is in a Committed Homosexual relationship and though we're not happy about his choice, his "pal" is a real nice guy and we all get along well. (though we much rather it was a girl )
And my wife and I? We're actually doing Awesome! I would say I love my life but then I'd lose it (John 12:25) We moved away and are having a great time just need to get in gear a find a church...admittedly having too much fun traveling and such.
Lessons from all this? We have a few friends whose kids just went completely off track. (crime, drugs ect) Again, good people, right up bringing and still kids just go their way
We only feel a tinge of guilt but we're confident the kids were properly trained and equipped for a good Christian life. They will be the ones that will have to answer for their lives...much like all of us will.
Well, see ya again for another update in 2019...if we're all still here!
