I live in the southern United States where people pride themselves on being "raised right," as Ferrol Sams says.
This “raised right” concept often comes with the perception of being right with God: if you’re doing all the culturally approved things, then you must be going to heaven.
Although it may be more obvious in the south, our entire western culture has adopted the belief that good behavior equals a right standing with God. We want our children to have a strong moral compass, however, teaching our children to be moral people apart from what Jesus has done for them puts the weight of redemption on their shoulders.
Here are 10 common ways parents mistakenly teach their children morals instead of the gospel.
