Question for the Christians about childhood salvation????????????
My son attends a Christian preschool but we are not Christians.
I obviously have no issue with him learning about Jesus and the bible or I'd choose another school.
This year's teacher is by far the most extreme in the religious parts of the curriculum. I'm sure she knows from what my son says that we don't go to church or practice organized religion. He comes home saying prayers and telling bible stories all the time. I have no issue with him learning about any of it.
But this week he came home with a note from her saying that he asked to have Jesus in his heart so she prayed with him and now he's saved. The note said he was now in the book of the lamb and when he died he would go to heaven. She also said we should rejoice in his decision.
I'm not really sure what to think about this. Is this something Christians think a five year old is capable of deciding on his own? I would think parents who worshiped this way would want to be present when their child was saved. And I don't believe for one second he understand any of it or can really have faith in something when doesn't know very much about it.
On one hand I feel like it's disrespecting our beliefs, but on other I know I sent him to Christian school.
Is something you think is appropriate to have happen without the parents knowledge?
