by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church – One Problem With Children’s Ministry
Editor’s note: You just cannot win or do anything right in the world of Anderson’s IFB beliefs if you are a woman. What’s so horrible about teaching children with crafts or a song? Who knew crafts could risk your salvation?
In one church, a vacation Bible school teacher whispered to the students that repenting of sin is necessary for salvation. Obviously, this infiltrator knew that what he was saying was different than what the pastor of the church believed and preached, which is why he was being sneaky. Older kids will sometimes catch stuff like that and tell their parents, but what about a four or five year old?
Even if the deviation from the lesson is not intentional, a lot of female teachers with very little discernment will get ideas for crafts and other supplemental materials from Pinterest. Who knows which denomination or Bible version those craft templates might be coming from?
Recently, a Sunday school teacher at a friend’s church handed out a puzzle and had very young children piece together a long-haired “Jesus.” Keep in mind, the official curriculum handout was from an IFB source that would never portray the Lord that way, but the teacher had added something of her own.
“But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:12
