How to Mess up The Minds of Your Children

Charles Swindoll in his book on Grace puts it this way, “How to mess up the minds of your children? Here’s guaranteed way to do it! Rear them in a legalistic environment of external religion, where performance is more important than reality. Fake your faith. Sneak around and pretend your spirituality. Train your children to do the same. Embrace a long list of do’s and dont’s publicly but hypocritically practice them privately . . . yet never own up to the fact that it is hypocrisy. Act one way but live another. And you can count on it; emotional and spiritual damage will occur.” (Charles Swindoll. The Grace Awakening. Dallas: Word Pub., 1990) p.97).
