Are You KIDding?

Since we were not able to discuss Trueman's comments regarding idolatry and children as planned, I have to share at least one rhetorical question that someone planned to ask: "If foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, what might one conclude about the heart of parents who church hop based upon the appetite of their children?"

Back in "the day" children were supposed to be trained in order to become adults. This philosophy assumed that mom and dad were the mature ones and that children were, well, foolish just like the Bible says. Parents may have even thought that their children were sinners who were controlled by sinful desires.   

We will be discussing chapter 15, 16, and 17 on Tuesday April 22nd.
