Grasp the concept of God? or say they accept Jesus as their Savior? I have seen little kids as young as 4 or 5 say it, but I don't believe a child can actually grasp the idea of needing a Savior and accepting Christ until much older. I have had my friends call me from the children's ministry all excited to tell me how my "daughter accepted Christ" this evening... and they are shocked at my lack of reaction. And I tell them well she has said it several times before, this isn't the first time and won't be her last. Nearly half of all adult baptisms we do start out with a story of how the person accepted Christ as a child but didn't really understand and then rededicated their life later. I personally do not think a child can "get it". I think that happens later when they become a teen or adult.

I was raised a Jehovah's Witness and I got it very very young. I don't even remember asking questions or anything which means I was under 4 or so. I think children grasp more than we think. I no longer am part of my mothers religion and she respects that and I teach my DD more Pagan ways(her father was raised Pagan) and she gets it I think and she's 2 1/2
