It’s One of the Hottest Issues of Today, Yet as With ALL
Few things can steal the innocence of childhood like bullying.
Bullying can rob an energetic, happy-go-lucky girl of her self-esteem. It can cause an inquisitive boy to become quiet and withdrawn.
Bullying can have damaging effects on a person’s psyche and self-image that last a lifetime.
It can lead to depression, sadness … and even suicide.
So many tragic bullying stories have led the news recently. It’s a topical issue … it’s an important issue … and, guess what, as with everything that is important to us, the Bible deals with it head on.
Hello, my name is Mary-Kate Warner, a Sunday School director for over two decades, and I have to say that few recent issues have touched a nerve with me like bullying has.
You See, When I was a Kid I Went Through
It wasn’t nearly as severe as what many kids are experiencing today but it did have an impact on me and on my personality, that much I’m sure of.
I was able to get through that difficult period thanks to a wise and understanding pastor who directed me to some very powerful Bible stories that speak directly to bullying and how we should handle it.
Those Bible stories gave me the strength I needed to persevere and overcome the bullying I was experiencing and I immediately thought back on that time in my life when bullying started recently gaining so much attention in the national media.
As I read of more and more kids committing suicide and dealing with mental health issues because of bullying, it hit me that a lot of kids don’t know what the Bible says about bullying and that if they did they could gain a lot of strength from that, just like I did.
So here’s what I’ve done:
I’ve created a comprehensive program that will help Sunday School teachers, youth ministers, regular school teachers, pastors, principals and parents provide kids with the Biblical foundation they need to not fall victim to bullying or engage in bullying behavior in the future.
With bullying being so prominently featured in the news lately, everybody wants to help out. This has lead to a wide variety of different messages from different authorities and all these different, often conflicting messages are leaving kids confused.
Kids need a straightforward, consistent message, a message that never changes – well, guess what, God never changes.
What God said many, many, many years ago still holds true today.
As psychology findings change, as electronics change the nature of friendships and as the ways to bully or be bullied continue to increase, two things that don’t change are:
God’s word speaks loudly and clearly on the subject of bullying and the stories of the Bible are relevant to cyber-bullying, school yard bullying and neighborhood bullying.
With the lessons in “Bullying and the Bible” kids will feel a real connection to the superheroes of God’s word and will instantly be able to draw parallels between the situations described in the Bible and the bullying situations that are occurring today.
Here’s just some of what kids will learn:
Your Students will be Amazed to See How
Each of the lessons in the “Bullying and the Bible” Program focuses in on a Bible character who experienced bullying and one theme that is often present in bullying situations of today.
You and your kids may be surprised to learn how bullies in the Bible are very similar to what kids often see or even face down in school today.
These lessons will help kids:
Here’s How Each Lesson is Set Up …
Each lesson, which should last about an hour, is broken down into a combination of the following parts depending on if you are teaching older or younger students:
To help the lesson time go even better, I’ve also included:
The Ultimate Goal of this Program …
With this program, I want kids to understand a little better the behavior of bullying as well as the behaviors leading up to it.
I want kids to understand that they all have the susceptibility to behave in these ways themselves!
Therefore they should forgive others and be merciful in judgment.
When facing down bullies, kids should be confident—not that they can win a battle with a bully, but, as I said earlier, that their God is faithful and just and helpful to those who call upon him.
I am confident these lessons will help a child develop that confidence!
Ready to Help Your Kids Better
Imagine a world without bullies where everyone is allowed to develop and grow without interference … a world where we don’t have to worry about kids being injured mentally and physically by a bully.
Unfortunately, that world does not exist but we do have the next best thing – God’s instructions on how to deal with this very serious and very dangerous issue.
The “Bullying and the Bible” Program consists of two different age-appropriate lesson packs – and if you order now, you can get the lesson pack of your choice (or both!) at a special low price.
‘About Half of All Children Experience Bullying …’
According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, close to half of all children will experience school bullying at some point in primary or secondary school.
At least 10 percent of children are bullied regularly. Nearly all children have been bystanders (witnessed bullying) while in or around school.
In recent studies psychologists have noted that:
• People’s brains are not totally developed until the age of 25. And two skills that appear to be the last to fall into place are often (1) understanding the ramifications of actions, and (2) empathy, or the ability to put ourselves into other people’s shoes. As these skills are still developmental in teens, they can be all but absent in younger children … which is why bullying so often happens
But Now the Good News …
Other studies have shown that kids who are taught right behaviors from wrong ones and who are prepared for situations that present themselves — these children are far more likely to use those acceptable modes of behavior.
Prepare your kids and help them avoid being bullied or bullying others with the “Bullying and the Bible” program.

Here’s the Bottom Line on This
As Christians, we are ahead of the curve when it comes to dealing with bullying.
We have, in the Bible, tried and true policy that was established for us long ago and we have the ultimate ally in the Living God who created the Heavens and the Earth, and who is not the least bit intimidated by anything one child can do to another.
God sees all!
While it would be superficial and wrong to present God’s Holy Word as a “fix-all” to a complex and irascible problem of modern industrialization, it does contain the foundational material we need to launch programs that have the greatest chance of success.
The lessons in “Bullying and the Bible” mix faith, Biblical teaching and today’s most helpful anti-bullying tools so that Christian kids can get through school without either playing victim or bully.
P.S. After this great exposure to anti-bullying themes that are Christ-driven, kids will be more prepared to recognize, neutralize and respond healthily to bullying behaviors. In situations that are out of control, they should feel not only comfortable but proud for telling the nearest teacher or grownup. They will also learn how very relevant the Bible is and what a friend Jesus is willing to be.
