Are Certain Passages of the Bible Inappropriate for Children?

Episode 582 Show Notes 

From the Show

Ultimately we want to expose our children to who Jesus is and what he has done for them. We need to be teaching our children the word of God. What a blessing it is for us to be able to pass the faith on to our children. God uses faithful moms and dads who are reading the bible to their children, praying for them, and teaching them the songs of the faith.

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. In Hebrews, where it says those have tasted the things of the Lord were not saved, what does that mean? I backslid and got caught up with alcoholism but the Lord brought me back and was curious if I lost faith and regained it, or if I always had it and the Lord just called me back?

2. How do we obey God if we don’t know the whole Bible? Wouldn’t we have to memorize every command to truly be obedient?

3. Matthew 7:21 says that “not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven. What does this mean? It sounds somewhat scary to me that not even saying “Lord, Lord” will allow us to enter the kingdom.

4. Is the Bible appropriate for children? Are all passages of the Bible appropriate for children? Or are some inappropriate? If there are some inappropriate passages, how can parents know which passages are appropriate to read to their children and which passages are not?
