2-4-2015             Living Without Shade

“And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls)” (Romans 9:10-11 NKJV). 1) Unborn children are not guilty of sin, neither Adam’s nor their own; 2) “Good or evil” are choices of actions to be done, not inherited, therefore a baby cannot be born “wholly inclined to evil;” 3) Regarding children, Fathers should “bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4 NKJV), and all who don’t will be judged by God; 4) Children should be taught right or wrong, good or evil, NOT “shades of gray.”
