The language of “holy” and “unclean” is taken from the book of Leviticus. That which was “holy” had to do with the temple worship of the Old Testament and refers to things which belong to the Lord. And Paul says here that our children belong to the Lord. Some Christian parents refer to their children as “vipers in diapers,” but Paul expects us to treat them as holy, as belonging to the Lord.
