“We Can’t Teach That Because…”

In two previous posts, we heard Sally Michael explain why and how we should teach difficult doctrines to children. In this video, she raises and then answers the following five objections:

We can’t teach difficult doctrines to children because….

1. These truths are inappropriate to teach to children (e.g., dark; violent; evil).
2. These truths are too hard for children to understand.
3. These truths are too hard for me to understand.  How can I hope to teach them to children?
4. The kids are going to be bored with all of this theology.
5. These topics are too controversial.  I will get in trouble if I teach these things.
