Define the word “enticement” in your mind. Watch how the model is dressed (or undressed) as General Motors sells the red Pontiac Firebird on the television commercial or check out the way the girls are clothed on the Coors, Millers or Budweiser beer commercials. Ask a boy what he thinks about when you wear those hot red short shorts to the 4th of July picnic. Ask the 9th grader what that can of beer in your hand does to your Christian witness.
Causing someone to stumble means to bring out sin in their life. Satan is a master at this fine art of deception. He knows our weaknesses like he knew Eve’s taste buds for the first red apple in the Garden of Eden.
Our summer camp has a staff of two thousand of the happiest, craziest, nuttiest collegiate Christian athletes you ever laid your eyes on.
Though some have struggled with alcohol in their past, to work at Kanakuk means we don’t drink. Many of the staff are over twenty-one and one glass of wine or one can of beer certainly isn’t going to make anyone drunk, but we work with kids, and kids tend to stumble pretty easily sometimes.
The call is simple. We don’t miss our beer and wine any more than you will miss the tight pants or “I love yous” often too easily spoken. Stumbling blocks are for building toy towers, not for making a brother or sister fall.
