I want to explain the Good News of Jesus Christ to my kids. However, this is a tough one. Why? Because my wife and I are on a journey ourselves that is asking a lot of big questions. Read this article to start asking your own questions on kids, church, and the good news of Jesus.

I want to explain the Good News of Jesus Christ to my kids. However, this is a tough one. Why? Because my wife and I are on a journey ourselves that is asking a lot of  questions. Big questions that really fly in the face of what we were taught growing up.no brain At times, we look at each other and ask one another, “what do we even say”? “How do we even say it?” We want to raise our kids well and teach them to be the best they can be, just like every other parent in the world, I hope. We want to talk to them about the God that we know. We want to share how the person of Jesus has molded us and shaped us. However, my wife and I both grew up in very fundamentalist christian environments. These were environments that were very dogmatic with no room to deviate from the core beliefs that were rigorously taught every time the doors were open without being “disciplined” by the members. We have come to the conclusion that we want to have conversations with our kids about Jesus without this dogmatic interpretation by churches that we grew up with. We just want them to know about Jesus and what he did. We want them to Love. We want to leave the dogma in the dust. We want them to learn how to think…to think with compassion for humanity. We don’t want them to look at a verse in the bible to determine what to do or how to love, but to know that love comes from viewing others as more important. We want them to be Real. We want them to be Gentle and Merciful with no violent view of God. We want them to be like Jesus….and leave the religion behind. Man are we in trouble…

I want to have real, heart felt conversations on religion and how it effects our lives...the good and the bad. Why? Because I believe that religion is different than following Christ and living in the Life System He came to set us free in, which is The Kingdom of God. We need to contemplate that religion is man-made and that being in religion doesn't mean that we are in Christ.
