Religious Cartoons for Kids Are Evil, Too

Religious Cartoons Are Evil for Kids, Too

Subject: Question on 2nd Commandment

Hi Paul and Victor,

I have been perusing your site- I found it while on a search to confirm what I was feeling about nativities and thank you for confirming that :).

I have been thinking about all of this a lot. Having been raised Catholic but converting to Protestant when I was sixteen I still have many “traditions” that need to be undone.  

My current question is this- I have many children’s bibles for my 2 kids. I am finding all of them have drawings (cartoonish ones) of Jesus when the story mentions Jesus. One called “Jesus Calling” (given my my brother’s family) even has a section after the story where “Jesus” talks about what was just read. I find that to be an abomination and have been torn on getting rid of it or marking through that section with a permanent marker because I think it does a good job telling the stories on a level the kids can understand (mine are 3 and 1). What are your thoughts? My other question is probably obvious. Are the depictions of Jesus in the children’s bibles graven images?  If so how do I go about teaching the stories from the bible in a way they can understand- should I just use mine and then try my best to explain what it is saying in terms they understand?

Thank you in advance!!

Best,

Sara

Hi Sara,

Have you red Religious Images, Icons, and Likenesses? Why expose your children to blasphemous material – toxic unreality? You’re on the right track here: 

How do I go about teaching the stories from the bible in a way they can understand- should I just use mine and then try my best to explain what it is saying in terms they understand?

Of course, your “best” will fall short or be in error, as you mention about needing to unlearn the lies of Catholicism AND Protestantism. If you’re walking the path of truth with the Lord Jesus Christ, that will certainly happen. That’s what we’re here to help you do. Keep reading our site, Sara, and let us know how things go.

Hi Paul,

Thank you so much for your response!!! I have read that page and found it to be congruent with what I had been feeling (from the Holy Spirit).  It is so crazy thinking a lot I have grown up knowing as “truth” really isn’t. Kind of earth shattering but that’s what Jesus came to do.  I have also told my three year old the truth about Santa because I was feeling convicted about that. When I told my family my mom was supportive but my dad didn’t agree with me. I am already dreading my in laws’ response (not that it would change me, just that I don’t like conflict with them because they tend to adopt an “I’m right and you’re wrong” attitude). I’m feeling Matthew 10:35 a lot lately as I challenge things I have learned and start unlearning them as I discover the truth. I thank you for your wonderful website. I have shared it with my husband and he has been reading on his own (a good sign that he is interested). I am so grateful to have the support you are offering. And of course grateful to have “woken up” at the ripe old age of 35 so I can help my kids know the truth too.   Thank you again!!!

Best,

Sara

Good to hear, Sara. The Lord has given you light – keep walking in it and you will see everything working for good.

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7 MKJV).

If I shared that with other believers they would call me crazy. But I knew deep down my logic was sound. Thank you for sharing the same beliefs I do.

Putting God First
Subject: GOD From: Carlos To: The Path of Truth Date: 8/23/2015 10:43 PM TO GAIN LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING YOU MUST PUT GOD FIRST NOT YOURSELF.   THEN GOD WILL GUIDE YOU IN WHAT IT IS HE WANTS YOU From: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Friday, August 28, 2015 7:43 AM To: Carlos Cc: Paul Cohen Subject: Re: GOD Amen, Carlos! We can’t argue with putting God first and that in worshiping Him in spirit and truth, He will indeed guide us in what it is He wants of us! Can you boldly and honestly tell us you have “put God first, not yourself,” and have thus “gained love and understanding”? If so, we’d certainly like to hear more. Victor
The Full Gospel of Jesus Christ
From: Mary Sent: October 13, 2015 2:56 PM To: Victor Hafichuk Subject: What an awesome testimony Victory, I find myself reading your testimony like I am ready my own written book.  I am in Charis Bible College 4th year.  The Lord started showing me scriptures that didn’t convey the same message as I was being taught. Our Spirit is perfect but our souls and body aren’t and won’t be until we receive our glorified bodies.  I just couldn’t wrap mind head around that.  or We shouldn’t sin but if we do, thank God for Jesus.  He justified all sin.  I was actually spiritually throwing up.  That ate at me. Andrew teaches the true word of God but always but a twist on it.  He just taught about Pride and then said that Jesus died for all our sins. He has this body, soul and spirit book that is only his opinion but in order for it to work I have to either ignore scripture or twist it to fit. The Lord showed me that he died breaking the dominion of sin, The cross keeps us from sin not in it. Anyway, Jesus woke me up telling me that his when people say they believe they don’t.  I woke up in tears.  I love him so much. I can’t believe all the scripture that tell us what we will must do to obtain what the Lord so purposely died for us to have is not being taught.   By listening to Jimmy S.  That’s when I discovered true salvation without works message.  I know he is on your list but the truth is if it’s true still works. Do you have any teaching on the Spirit....
