“I have seen many Reformed believers literally chase their children away from salvation. We have somehow come to think the bread of life is a choking hazard . . . the problem we are discussing here is the impact of our ‘virtues’ on the children. We are talking about believers who take the good stout rope of their pietistic traditions, and tie their children up lest they get under the table to gather crumbs with the son of the Syro-Phoenician woman” (A Primer on Worship and Reformation, pp. 72-73).
