Do your children have an active understanding of what they believe? As your kids get older, their beliefs will be challenged more and more. Without a true understanding of what they believe, your kids may be left with nothing but questions and confusion.
This is why the study of Christian apologetics can be a great pursuit for parents and teenagers. Through this study, teens have an opportunity to come to a deeper and more personal understanding of their faith.
Why Parents Should Study Christian Apologetics With Their Kids
The Internet has created a more informed and connected world, and because of this, teens today have easy access to the ideas, perspectives, and worldviews of many different cultures and religions. This means that the beliefs of Christian teens can be questioned in a wide variety of ways. This is where Christian apologetics becomes very useful. Christian apologetics involves supporting and giving evidence for the truths of God and Scripture.
Christian parents might want to start encouraging their teens to take some time every week to seek knowledge in this area and dwell on why they believe what they believe. This can build a stronger foundation for their faith as they enter the temptations of college and adult life. Your teenagers will probably find that this study is interesting and a source of encouragement. Parents can join their teenagers in this pursuit as well. Consider this: By studying spiritual truths together with you teen, both of you will deepen your spiritual maturity and understanding, and you and your teen will grow closer together at the same time.
