“The Jesus Storybook Bible” by Sally Lloyd-Jones

Escape to Reality

Jesus Storybook BibleA question I am often asked is, “What grace resources are available for children?” It seems there are hardly any.

In Sunday School children are much more likely to learn about Christian values or the Ten Commandments than they are the unconditional love of their heavenly Father. This should trouble every parent.

It certainly troubles me.

Yesterday I happened to watch a puppet-show on a Christian TV station that was telling the story of how Adam and Eve fell into sin. The puppets very seriously told us that Adam and Eve disobeyed God, which is true, but isn’t the point of the Genesis story at all. I’m glad my kids weren’t watching but if they were, I would’ve told them, “Adam and Eve didn’t fall because they disobeyed. They disobeyed because they believed a terrible lie.” Their disobedience was a symptom of a far more serious problem.
