    I was thinking of those who search for God but the natural desires of humankind wants to see and hold on to physical attachment to a God whom they thought is carnal like us. Therefore, resulted in chasing not the true spiritual knowledge of God but after their own weakneses.

    Yes, that is true. I started our 2 year old grandaughter on childrens christian songs. At 4 years old now she can sing them all. Jesus Loves The Little Children Of The World, Give Said The Little Stream, etc. As she plays, she can be heard humming those songs. Start young!

    Verse 15 shows that education of the Bible should began as soon as a child is born.

    Irene, good to hear from you. You had stated that you did not want to appear to b one of those silly women led astray by deceitful worker. The word is not mentioning godly women, born again, washed in the blood of the Lamb by faith, such as you. It may be that i stated changing the scriptures to b able to converse with you on that subject. God Bless
