I’ve seen cases where the parents, even active parents, abdicated gospel teaching to the church. The church did the teaching all right, in primary, youth, sunday school, etc. But the kids never paid attention, because according to the example given by the parents, the Gospel just wasn’t important outside of church.
If the parents don’t make it important, it just won’t be important to the kids.]]>
Try using a different commentary than Chuck Misler in your personal study and you’ll get a different perspective>:)]]>
I’d like to see the church cut priesthood time in half and add it to SS….I think all of us would learn more.]]>
I also think of this as something that is cannonized among the teachers, but not so much among the members.]]>
You seem to be advocating some kind of an all-or-nothing world with no nuance or degrees. This says “support”, I don’t think it says “not important”. I don’t see it as an excuse for SS teachers to do poorly, I see it as a reminder that each of us has the responsibility to study the gospel on our own time so that what we learn at SS can “support” what we’ve been learning on our own.
Are teachers supposed to find a way to tie every concept to the home and family? “Repenting of our sins and accepting the atonement makes better parents and children of us.”]]>
