Christian parenting – JAM

Children come with no guarantees, in spite of the proverb: “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” It’s a proverb, not a law. For many parents failure is their deepest concern and greatest fear. Now some scientists are telling us that parenting has less to do with outcome than heredity. Godly parents wonder “Is the whole thing rigged so that our efforts to pass on faith depend more on DNA than Christian parenting?” The answer is “No!” Faith in God is not the result of genetic code, nor is it the insured outcome of Christian parenting. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”. Faced with the testimony of the Holy Spirit each one chooses to believe it or reject it. It’s that simple. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
