What do you think if Baptists banded together to destroy the illiteracy among their churches by teaching a catechism such as what Broadus wrote listed on http://www.geocities.com/baptist_documents/catechism.broadus.html Years ago I worked with kids and had the fastest growing and largest kids group in the city. I simply taught the Bible. They memorized one verse each week. The lesson was on the same verse. Eventually there were kids who were old enough to move on but wanted to stay and help because of what they were learning. The days of emotional appeals and baby sitting need to come to an end if we expect our children to live the Christian life.
