Why Do Children Lose Their Trust in the Bible?
I was able to catch the children’s attention when talking about natural selection, variation within a created ‘kind’, the origin of ‘races’ where all people came from, and, of course, dinosaurs. The Bible suddenly became connected to the real world. It wasn’t just a book of stories about morals to beat them over the head with. It dawned on them that the Flood of Noah was real history accounting for much of the geology we see in the world today, the Tower of Babel could account for the origin of different people groups, and that the Bible explains dinosaurs and so on.
