J. Warner Wallace: who is responsible for explaining Christianity to your child?

On teaching your kids Christianity…


Here is a must-read post from J. Warner Wallace, author of “Cold Case Christianity“.


It’s tempting to assign our responsibility as parents to others, especially when it comes to issues that require some expertise we don’t already possess. When my daughter was struggling with geometry, my first inclination was to hire a tutor, even though my architecture degree forced me through several layers of calculus and I was proficient at geometry at one time myself.

It’s every Christian’s responsibility to recognize these people and the guidance they teach because God does not give everything to one person or “church.” We are to live on every Word of God (Deuteronomy 8:3). How can the Church do that when she does not listen to the whole Body of Christ? The hands cut off the foot and still expect to walk as God wishes.
