Do you Christians here think children should read the bible?

If so what do you tell them when they read verses like this?

Ezekiel 23:20 (NIV) "There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses."

a) Yes

b) I'll just use that verse and Song of Solomon instead of "The Talk" *dusts off hands*.

What Welsh said
"Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways, and how small a whisper we hear of Him!
But the thunder of His power who can understand." - Job 24:14

But just in case you think i dont have an answer:

1.)Would i tell my kids what is good for their body? (fruits and vegetables)
2.)Would i tell my kids what is good for their mind? (productive tv shows, puzzles, etc.)
3.)THen why wouldnt i tell my kids what is good for their spirit? (gods word- the bible)

Answer your own question.

as trollish as this is, obviously more Christians should read the Bible. Many don't at all, and their status as Christians is only not in question because we are supposed to not judge, and can't judge their heart. But speaking on average, most people that call themselves Christians are probably not really Christians. The Bible even says, not everyone that calls Jesus Lord will be saved. It does you no good to appear as something if you aren't really on the inside.

Well that makes us look really good. Out of the millions of atheists in the world, all but 18 know what they're talking about? We must be the most knowledgeable "group" in the world!

I guess I didn't really isolate my answer to just children.

I think that children should read at least some of the Bible. I even did growing up in an atheist family.

As a prospective parent, I will read some of the Bible to my children. I will encourage them to memorize some passages, and I will discuss some verses with them. I will probably start with verses that are easy to interpret and easy to understand why they are "good". In addition, I think good verses for children to be familiar with are ones that stress the importance of being respectful and having self control. I will also discuss overall themes in the Bible with them.

I remember reading that verse as a little kid. Didn't mess me up at all
