The Company of Fools

Peter Leithart

"Parents should especially train their children in godly relations with the opposite sex. Seducers exist, both male and female (Proverbs 7:1-27; 9:13-18), and children should be trained to spot and avoid them, so that they don’t defile the temple of God by uniting with a whore (1 Corinthians 6:12-20). From their earliest years, they should be taught that Christians marry Christians. Here as elsewhere, success in parenting depends on children being receptive. Teenagers who sneak around with a boyfriend or girlfriend or who defy their parents’ authority are fools."
