This is primarily for the Baptists: I have a friend who wants to be consistent with his Baptist views, and it sure shows in how he views his children. 1. He won't let them pray. 2. They don't confess their sins to God, but to the parents only. 3. They can't sing worship songs. These are just a few of the points. So if he allows his children to do these things, then they would be acting as Christians and therefore would need to be treated as Christians. As I said, he wants to be consistent. To me, this is very sad. Even Jesus taught to not hinder the children from coming to Him. What if they truly do have faith? They are being hindered. If they have nightmares, they can't come to the Lord in prayer for comfort. They can't rest on the promises of the Bible. They can't delight in singing to their God, etc. Is this a bad representation of Baptists? If so, why? Thanks!
