With so many things grabbing the attention of our kids, do they take the time to read the Bible?
For your kids to know the Bible, they need to study it, not just skim it.
Regard for Christianity
On the tombstone of Martin Jenners in Lafayette, IN cites two contradictory Scripture verses from Isaiah and 1st Corinthians. It’s an illustration of his life’s ignorant and arrogant disregard for Christianity. Martin’s understanding of Christianity and these two verses could have been cleared up had he just continued to read the next five verses in Isaiah. Instead, Martin Jenners died believing a lie.
So many other kids make the same mistake. Kids tend to eisegesis rather than exegesis Scripture; hence, causing them to leave the church. Few kids have ever read the Bible in its entirely, much less study it. That’s why I suggest all our college bound kids spend at least their first two years at a Christian college or other Bible believing school.
