Parents Beware: This will kill your children

I stumbled across this excellent quote by William Farely (HT: Chris Brauns):
"Moralism – - the idea that we merit God’s favor by being good – - is the deadly enemy of Christian parenting. Moralism trusts in its own goodness, virtue, and principled intentions to get a “not guilty” verdict from God on the day of judgment. It is deceptive. A cloak of morality over an unregenerate heart can make it difficult to discern the child’s true spiritual condition." William P. Farley, page 42

  1. Deadly right on. Also the basic teaching we find in much of children and youth ministry, behavior modification.
