Have we been heading the wrong direction with this age-segregation, programmed church, and children’s ministries? Are we really following through on the Titus 2 and 2 Timothy mandates for church discipleship and worship? Questions come up here concerning delegation, children’s church, child evangelism, youth culture, the sufficiency of Scripture, and the displacement of God’s law with the traditions of men. Here’s a key question—Do children of Christian parents belong in the Ekklesia (the church congregation), or do we put them in a “children’s church?” Do we shuffle children off into Sunday Schools, or are they to be discipled daily in the homes by their own parents? Or a little of both?
