sin

This five part series expands on my answer to the question from Children’s Ministry Think Tank #5 on the Ministry-to-Children.com website. In my response to the question:

My first post in this series is an:

  1. Introduction to the series

The following five posts deal with the five areas I believe children must be taught about sin in order to fully understand the concept. Those were:

  2. Where does it come from?
  3. Who sins?
  4. What are the consequences of sin?
  5. What is the solution for sin?

Enjoy!
