An online discussion has been going on about whether Christian parents should view their children as unbelievers. Principles are emerging such as the way you know your child has faith is to see “fruit they have never produced before.” After the jump, a Lutheran pastor, Rev. Jordan Cooper, responds.
Read the whole thing, including the comments, which includes someone recalling the term “vipers in diapers.” Rev. Cooper also includes this anecdote:
I’m reminded of a time in which I saw a woman with her five year old daughter who was in a conversation about her Christian faith. This little girl said to her mom: “I love Jesus,” and the mother replied: “No you don’t. You’re not old enough.”
