  • Destination Heaven? The Huge Importance Of Winning Kids To Jesus

    16/10/2022 Duração: 15min

    By Richard Hunt Daniel Boll shares with seriousness the risk of not explaining the Gospel to children. “The stat comes from Barna Research – 4% of teens accept Christ when given a chance. 6% of adults will accept. But with kids, it’s 32% accept Jesus when they’re given a chance.” So once a child begins to mature, the odds of him or her forming a saving relationship with Jesus diminish greatly. “I want them to experience what God has for them. I want them to experience that fullness, that love, that acceptance – the belief that they were created for a purpose. That God made each and every one of them, He knit them together so perfectly for a purpose for something greater than themselves.” – Moriah Boll
