Default Re: Setting Children Up to Fail

Well, Adam and Eve were adults. That is a huge difference. If you put something tempting in front of a baby, he's not even going to understand what you mean when you tell him not to touch it. At least Adam and Eve understood what God meant.

Plus, we, as adults have to deal with tempting situations every day. I could say that the soda machine in church is setting me up for failure, but I'm an adult and I have much more impulse control than when I was a child.
