  • Both me and my son are proof that this verse is accurate. I grew up in a religious home... went to church every sunday... in my teens and young adulthood I did walk away.... far far away... however, the prayers of my mom and the things I had been taught did follow me. I did return to a relationship with Christ and have not walked away again and never will.

    My son was also raised up in church... in his teens he too walked away. Today he is in full-time ministry.

  • I was "trained up" to be a believer by methodists and baptists. Didn't work at all. I've never been a believer, even as a very young child. But they certainly tried hard. .

    So obviously chalk me up on the "it's inaccurate" column.

    My ex has been trying to "train up" my children in his church ways since before he was the ex...so far, he's striking out, too. And this is despite my not having been "allowed" to tell them my beliefs for most of their lives.

  • I wasnt really raised as Christian mom wasnt active at all but some of her ways did send a signal of a christian woman.My dad is an 'atheist' and a very bitter one always seemed terribly angry with the non existent God for example hed hollar at me 'I AM YOUR GOD KID!'.I just went to vacation bible school at a southern Baptist church in Maryland along with my big sister for a year or two and that was it never went again but it was enough to plant the seed.The age of 17 I called out to the Lord Jesus alone in my bedroom on my knees.Later on in my very young adulthood I claimed myself to be agnostic obviously slidding away...but the Lord never truelly left me and once I started to really listen and pay attention I realized He still always rang true ..His word (The Holy Bible) for me had answers to just about any question I had..
    I believe it to be accurate..althought I wasnt exactly raised on the word the Lord sent someone
