Quotes to Consider:
John Calvin on Genesis 18:19: "...God does not make known his
will to us, that the knowledge of it may perish with us; but that we may
be his witnesses to posterity, and that they may deliver the knowledge
received through us, from hand to hand, (as we say) to their
descendants. Wherefore, it is the duty of parents to apply themselves
diligently to the work of communicating what they have learned from the
Lord to their children. In this manner the truth of God is to be
propagated by us, so that no one may retain his knowledge for his own
private use; but that each may edify others, according to his own
calling, and to the measure of his faith. There is however no doubt,
that the gross ignorance which reigns in the world, is the just
punishment of men’s idleness. For whereas the greater part close their
eyes to the offered light of heavenly doctrine; yet there are those who
stifle it, by not taking care to transmit it to their children."
