"The gospel is not about making bad people moral, but about making dead people alive."
Click here to read the blog post -- "How to raise a pagan kid in a Christian home" (NOTE: Please also read the author's note at the beginning of the post about the use of the word "pagan" -- it's important for those who are going to speak about spiritual / religious matters that we use words accurately.)
Okay, one more quote from the post because it's so good and I'm worried you won't go read the post itself:
"Do you teach your kids "be good because the Bible tells you to" or do you teach your kids that they will never be good without Christ’s offer of grace? There is a huge difference. One leads to moralism; the other leads to brokenness. One leads to self-righteousness; the other leads to a life that realizes that Christ is everything and that nothing else matters. "
