In Psalm 78, we are commanded to teach the next generation about God and "his wonderful works that he hath done." Then verses 6-7 tell us why we need to teach God's Word: "That the generation to come might know them (God's commandments), even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments (emphasis mine)."
The only hope is God and His commandments, but both God and His 10 commandments have been rejected in our society, especially in the government's (public) schools. Since creation man has tried by his own efforts to cover and correct his sins, all to no avail.
There is no hope for man outside "repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ" (Acts 20:21). May God be merciful to us as we strive to make this known to the generations to come, as God has commanded us Christians to do.
