Is it right to witness to young kids? I think so. Christians believe in an “age of accountability.” This is supposed to be some God-determined age where God holds people responsible for their sins. My question: Where is this in Scripture? If it can’t be conclusively determined that there is a specified age, should we not tell everyone, regardless of how young that they will also be held accountable for the things done while in the body (using discretion and age-appropiate language, of-course)? My daughter D.D. is really starting to understand Christ’s suffering on the cross in a new way after watching the end of the DVD, “The Gospel of John.” She said that she doesn’t want to go to Hell and we explained to her about sin, repentance, righteous and Judgment—and she’s only seven-years-old. Though she asked Jesus to forgive her at age three, we aren’t taking any chances; we will continue to bring up our children in the training and instruction of the Lord.
