There are many out there who would mischaracterize God. We need to prepare our kids for these mischaracterizations of God. We must not ignore, sanitize, or downplay the difficult parts of Scripture. We must address them head on and give our kids an accurate understanding of who God is.

If we read the Old Testament honestly, we will see a God of great compassion and mercy. A God who pleads with his people to choose wisely. A God who continually points to his plan of salvation for all mankind – Jesus. And Jesus continually points back to God in the Old Testament.

You can’t separate the God of the Old Testament and Jesus. “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6
