(sorry....could not resist). Ok, so here we go.....I have seen quite a few posts on here from "christians" whom say that they are teaching their children all religions so that they can have the knowledge and choose what they want. Well, isn't that a contradiction to Christianity as a whole? We are to teach our children to love and know God. Anyone else confused by this one?

I pay for my children to attend catholic school. At home those values are reinforced. I hope they stay catholic, marry catholic and raise their children catholic too. That being said, I will love, accept and respect my children if they choose another religion - just as my parents did when I chose to be catholic. I don't profess to teach my children the practice of other religions - only tolerance & respect. I do take some extra measures for them to appreciate the history of Judaism & Islam and to see the parallels between Christianity and the other monotheistic faiths because I want them to have a world view, but its not a "try one on and see how you like it" thing. We have a plaque in our house that reads:
"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24:15

I believe that it depends on the AGE of the child! Young children would get confused and most likely would feel uncertain. I don't really want that for my kids. Right now because of their age, I'm ONLY teaching them aspects of MY (our) Faith. I'm hoping that I'm giving them a solid foundation and stepping stone for the future.
When they are older (late teens 16 and older) then I have no problem with them exploring, learning about other faiths. It is my goal and hope by then they will have a good SOLID understanding of MY (our) Faith so that can make some real comparisons. (more next post)
