This is so very true. As children, learning, we have poor judgement and therefore make mistakes, but we are to learn right from wrong in those mistakes, take responsibility for ourselves and mature.

Brother Fred really hits a home run with this show. Not only does he always bring in the fun but WOW he loaded us up with a great topic and made some excellent points.

It also fuels the questions of where is God and why does He allow even the children to suffer so? If you have not faced this question from others or asked yourself the same, you are more than likely in the minority.
