    The Darndest Things: Censoring Scripture?

    August 23, 2008 by Brandy Vencel

    Sometimes, I wonder if we should be careful which verses our children are exposed to at which ages. Our son, for instance, was recently introduced to this verse:

    But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

    Matthew 18:6

    Within 48 hours of gaining this new wisdom and insight, he caught A. encouraging Q. to do something that is expressly against house rules. And do you know what he said to her? He said, “A.? Do you want to die? God is going to throw you into the ocean and drown you for doing that!”

    Great.
