Helping Our Christian Teens Understand Liberty

I am working right now on a chapter to help parents understand and articulate Christian liberty to their teens. Douglas Wilson has a succinct wording that the wise Christian parent can use to explain this: HT BTW

Douglas Wilson:

The way others are to view your liberty is not the same way that you should view your liberty.

Other Christians should let you do what you want unless the Bible forbids it. That’s how we guard against legalism.

But you should use your liberty differently—you should be asking what the reasons are for doing it, and not what the reasons are for prohibiting it.

Very helpful…..More to come.
