Parenting with Law and Gospel
This thesis examines how a Christian parent will carry out his or her God-given task of parenting. This world is full of different parenting books and styles. This paper aims to identify God’s method of parenting. By examining how God parents his children in the Bible, Christian parents can learn how to properly apply Law and Gospel with their children. Seldom do parenting books and styles of this world properly distinguish between Law and Gospel. God’s word could be the beginning and the end of parental learning. Parenting books can be useful for practical tips, but only if the Christian parent first has a solid foundation on Law and Gospel.
