True Democracy

While it is biblical to teach children to live under authority, it is also right to teach them how to live in a democracy.  Contemporary life demands that we be able to think through issues for ourselves and gain the moral and cooperative skills for successful living in a democratic society.  Certainly life includes submission to Christ as Master, but not all issues are settled from a direct statement of Scripture. . . Not allowing children to hammer out rules and ethics in debate and interaction with others stifles their ability to think morally.
