Be unprepared

As opposed to the Scouts ('Be prepared') this is the motto for many churches.

To save you a click, here's the nub of it:

Leaders at Hope Life Baptist Church are always careful to pray for their graduating seniors, that the Lord would miraculously stop them from deconverting, even though the church doesn’t spend a single second addressing even basic secular arguments against the faith.
I've written before about the basic Christian reading for any reasonably educated young Christian, but we can go further.

A seminar each month with a 20 month program would equip school leavers for the views, arguments (many are not arguments, just rants), and positions adopted by non-believers.  Just too much effort? How valuable is your children's faith? How valuable is evangelisation? Do we take Paul seriously in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5?

I'll outline the 20 week program some other time.
