You ask a very deep question!  I hope to goodness that faith impacts children’s lives toward strong morals and disciplined behavior!  I believe the recent surge of Bible curriculums that relate Biblical principles to character development should help children connect the dots between what we teach at church and how we hope they will live their lives.  It is most frustrating and puzzling to see children who have learned lots of Bible facts, but don’t live a Christ-like lifestyle.  We have to keep in mind that you can’t educate children into to the kingdom!  It must be the work of the Holy Spirit, in conjunction with the Word.  So I’m not sure if “religion” is the answer – leading children to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and directing them to the Bible as the guidebook seems to the real need.  In other words, religion can become words on a page, rituals completed, not a relationship with God and His Son.  That relationship should change one’s character to become Christ-like – loving, compassionate, kind, helpful.

We would have no discipline or morality problems if children exhibited the fruits of the Spirit! We hear the slogan that “knowledge is power,” however the scriptures teaches us that knowledge puffs up (1 Corinthians 8:1). Don’t get me wrong, I am all for a great education but somehow there must be a balance between secular education and establishing a firm foundation based on the scriptural principles of God’s word. Let me give you an example; the Young Adult Sunday School class at Franklin Avenue Baptist Church recently finished a study series on “Success God’s Way.” In the book the author quotes Proverbs 22:1 that teaches us that “a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches…”In a society that judges success of individuals by the clothes they wear, the car they drive, or the career they choose, the church desperately needs to reaffirm biblical standards of servant hood, humility, and integrity. When our society get back to the biblical principles that our country was founded on, then and only then will we begin to see individuals loving, serving, and respecting one another.
