I am teaching 4th grade at a Christian school this year. One of my subjects is the Bible. The school uses the A Beka curriculum. I have noticed over the past couple of weeks that there are some ideas that I am required to teach these children that I have a problem with. It's nothing major.....no doctrinal issues. And don't get me wrong, I enjoy the series. But in the Bible lessons, it is taught that God, when making clothes for Adam and Eve, killed a lamb....which is a foretelling of Jesus, the Lamb of God. There is even a picture of a dead lamb to go with that lesson. The Bible doesn't say what kind of animal God killed. Of course, it is a representation of the shedding of blood for the remission of sins, but I am highly uncomfortable with teaching the children that it was a specific animal. So.....I told them the truth - that the bible doesn't specifically say. Also, the curriculum teaches that the reason that Eve wasn't afraid of the serpent was because before Satan entered into it, it was probably a favorite pet. ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? :BangHead: I told the children that the Bible doesn't say that either. I told them that animals did not have the "fear" of humans until after the flood, but that doesn't mean that the serpent in the garden was necessarily a pet. Am I wrong in being this nit-picky? I find myself doing it almost daily. Please don't mince words.....I'm a grown woman. I can take it.
