Why You Ought to Have Your Children With You in Church

The question would be a strange one for people in the year 1700 since they always had their children with them during worship. It was normal. The question would not have come up because people were used to keeping their children with them.

The question would also have been an unusual one for people in the early church. The early church met in homes with all present and Jesus made it clear to His disciples that children were always welcome.

The question would be a strange one for people in Israel. We have many Old Testament references that record children present during major events where God's Word was being communicated to groups of people. The Old Testament writers make mention of this without explanation. It was simply too normal.

It is obvious that the normative practice for Israel and the early church was to integrate children into the gatherings of the people. Further, nowhere do we ...

Jim. It's the responsibility of the parents. To train, there children. Not Sunday school teachers. Half these kids, go to some form of either public or private school. Why would we seperate them, even more. This also equips them, as they get older. So when they are 12-16 they aren't saying. This is boring, can we go?? I want to go to Sunday school and " hang out". No. They need to be Hearing the Gospel. Many of the great preachers of the great awakinging, started preaching when they where just teenagers. Jim. We have dumbed down the church, and have dumbed down the children.

I don't know if you accidentally added "not" to your sentence, but I think you will find that there was separation of the sexes during synagogue.

A couple of examples you can check (No, Wikipedia isn't one) are:

http://www.torah.org/learning/women/class1c.html#

http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/160962/jewish/Separation-in-the-Synagogue.htm

From what I've just read, women were not separated from the men in worshiping in the synagogue, but there isn't much mention of children in them.

Children at IHCC can be and usually are with their families during the musical part of the service. During the preaching part of the service they go to classes tailored for them. The church is a place for educating children, and it has to be remembered,

1 Corinthians 13
11 When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.---NASB

I think the children appreciate this even more than adults, especially those who don't demand that their children shut up, don't squirm, don't annoy the congregants for an hour and half and then fine, they can stay with their parents.

Ah adults who don't turn off their cell-phones and talk during the service might also have their bottoms warmed up a little. Since we can't do that legally, perhaps we should suggest we have a special remedial class for those types?

"Let's bring our children back into the meetings of the church. I sincerely believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ were here in the twenty-first century, He would be the first to invite them back"

I agree that children should be with their parents in church.

However the problem in many lands today is, 'Where is the Church?'

All to many churches practice the religion of Liberalism - not Christian doctrine according to Scripture. Therefore there is nothing for the adults never mind the children.
