First generation Christians when an adult comes to Christ, have their own
personal testimony. Second generation Christians don’t, they go to church
because their parent took them but it doesn’t always mean they know God
for themselves.

Children need to discover God for themselves. Going alone for a time gives
them a taste of what it’s like to live without Christ. Sometimes it’s necessary
for them to be born again in their own right and discover God for themselves.
Its far better to do that than for someone to think they are a Christian
just because they were brought up in a Christian family.

I’ve seen and heard several instances where people think they are Christians
just because they were raised Christian. I’ve even seen people on here
claim to be Christian from birth. But that’s living under your parents
grace and faith, not your own.

    Agree
    Mainstream churches have traditions
    but Pentecost is about being converted,
    and every young person needs to become
    a daughter or son [sorry no third choice] of
    their Father in Heaven in their own right.
