Should You Make Your Child Go To Church?

By wsbt | January 17, 2014


Here is a good question you should ask your self as a parent:

(Check at the end to see who made this powerful statement)

“Shall I force my children to go to church?”

“Shall I make my child go to church? Yes, and with no further discussion about the matter. Are you startled? Why? How do you answer them when they come to breakfast on Monday morning and announce to you that they are ot going to school anymore? You know! They go! How do you answer them when they come say: “I’m not going to take a bath.” They bathe!

Why all this timidity then in the realm of their spiritual guidance and growth? Going to wait and let them decide what church they will go to when old enough? You did not wait until they were old enough to decide whether they wished to remain dirty or be clean. Do you wait until they are old enough to decide if they want to take medicine when they are sick?

What will you say when they announce they do not like to go to church? That is easy to answer. Just be consistent. Tell them “In our family we all go to church and that includes you!”

The parents of America can strike a telling blow against Juvenile delinquency if our mothers and fathers will take their children to worship our Lord regularly.”

-J. Edgar Hoover
