Can’t outrun your training

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
That is not a promise that a child raised in church will never back slide. I was raised in church and saved at 8 years old, called to preach at 15, and out of church by the time I was 19.
Took nearly 10 years before I got back to church on a regular basis. What I discovered was that a child properly trained or educated won’t be able to escape what has been taught. Yes, a great deal did get forgotten but I couldn’t out run the knowledge of who I truly am to God my Heavenly Father. Those who spend all their early tears in church but easily leave and never come back, I am sorry but most likely they were never saved. With that being said don’t give up hope! Pray for them to get right. Request prayer for them every where you go and every time you go. It can work. I know, because that was what my mom did for me. For nearly 10 years.
