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!!

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.

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!!!

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).

I believe this man is full of the spirit of jesus. I have read some of the things said about him on this site. And isn't christ who said go out and teach the people of his father. Which i believe todd is has done more of that than most people would ever do. He doesnt just do some tricks on the street like chris angel. He brings the love of jesus and god into souls that would not believe he is true. To say that he is doing work of satan is a joke. because if satan wanted more to follow him and not christ why would he be selling christ to everyone. I only write this email to let everyone here know that if anyone puts down a person for wanting to love christ is just like casting the first stone. And the money he does raise from his site goes to the poor and people in need. He only uses some for him to travel to teach. Just like any church out there. There are some out there yes that use it for there own gain but i have yet to see him use it for that. Thank you for reading my email. I am sorry if it does sound like i am mad. But i just love god and jesus so much that to hear someone be put down for doing the same just gets me a little irratated. ,Jeremiah From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Jeremiah Sent: Sunday, August 14, 2016 7:06 AM Subject: Re: From what i have seen of Tod...

I first want to say thank you for the work you put into it and how much time you dedicate to do all this. I just have one question, that has me rather desperate: what teacher is actually to trust nowadays? See, I'm a born again Christian for almost four years now and I only rely on the Bible and what it teaches, still I sometimes like to watch youtube videos for new insights and maybe guidance etc. I never fully followed them or "worshipped" the teachers if you know what I mean (some people actually do that, I saw people freak out totally listening to some Mega Church Pastors) as I have been able to identify false prophets with the help of our Lord Jesus Christ (praise God) and also your website, especially people that actually use Christ to advertise for themselves, which has me all... you know... being mad and stuff, because I detest such selfish behaviour and may God forgive them for their sins. But now I'm sort of like.... "OK, where are the ones I can actually believe and listen to?" Do you happen to know any ministries or teachers that actually teach what the Bible tells us? I would be very happy to receive any information on this. I am so tired of living in this world full of lies. Thank you very much in advance and be blessed,...
Knowledge alone cannot bring you to the Truth. Only a broken spirit and contrite heart will lead to the beginning of true understanding in the Lord.
