Sundry Sunday: What Voddie Baucham Thinks of Children

An article on Homeschoolers Anonymous that I caught my eye:

THE CHILD AS VIPER: HOW VODDIE BAUCHAM’S THEOLOGY OF CHILDREN PROMOTES ABUSE

 

It contains excerpts of his books and sermons on fatherhood, patriarchy, children, etc.

Many people outside of Conservative, Christian, Homeschooling circles would most probably never heard of the guy. But within those circles, he is a Big Man — both figuratively and physically.

I’m still working through the article.

  1. I hate, practically with a passion, the entire idea of human beings as inherently sinful. The damage this foundational assumption causes goes far beyond the “radicals” (if you can call Voddie Baucham a radical, given his influence I’m not sure you can) and how children are raised.

  2. I am greatly, greatly disturbed by what Voddie Baucham has to say about children. Actually, to be precise, I am alarmed that people like what he has to say and listen to his advice.

  3. Voddie Baucham doesn’t merely say that children are sinful. He calls them evil. Then, he criticizes people for limiting the number of children in their families because they have adopted the world’s idea of children as burdens and not as blessings

  4. Well, let’s just say I don’t think it’s as far of a jump to get to “children are evil” when your starting premise is “people are inherently sinful”.
