“Unfortunately, a shallow view of sin will produce a shallow view of the cross and shallow Christians. Sin is deeper than our actions. It is also wrong attitudes toward God and others. And deeper than wrong actions are wrong affections. Our children (and we) don’t love God and others. We love idols and ourselves. Without a deeper view of sin, our children may develop several unintended characteristics.”
