There’s a verse in Proverbs that says something like, “Raise your children up in the way of the Lord, and when they grow old they will not depart from it.” Yet it seems like every religious family I know has thatĀ oneĀ child that rejected the faith. The book of Proverbs isn’t meant to be taken as a collection of statements that are true 100% of the time, because there’s exceptions to everything. So many people don’t realize that, then wonder what they’re doing wrong when they follow the wisdom in that book yet things go downhill.
