Teaching Your Children Spiritual Truth

Phil Johnson writes a great little article on “Teaching Your Children Spiritual Truth.” If you’re like me, you'll not only find it encouraging and enlightening, but also hilarious (see the conversation with Holly). Here is Phil’s outline:

2. Avoid figurative language and unexplained symbolism.

3. Clearly separate reality from fantasy.

4. Find out what your children are thinking.

5. Don’t expect them to get the lesson the first time.
