This paragraph is from Marc Winter’s book ‘Was Church God’s Idea’ and is something which all believers should really consider.
Jesus said before you build a house you need to count the cost. The
Ekklesia is totally unique from church. The Ekklesia, being a living entity,
flows interconnected to Jesus and others. It is spiritually led and Spirit
fed. You cannot say, “Here it is, or there it is, for the Kingdom of God is
within you.” Meeting places are likely to routinely change. Training children spiritually is the parent’s responsibility; others may help if the group is so directed, but no one shoulders the right responsibility for the children’s spiritual growth but the parents. (Page 62).
So what do you think in regards to what Marc has written? In light of all the children’s and youth programs out there, should we be handing our little ones off to someone else to teach?
