My mom is going to buy my 4 yo daughter a children's Bible because my dd *gasp* didn't know the story of Noah's ark! While I want dd to know about many different traditions and stories, I am a little freaking out about this.
I am of the persuasion that the original teachings of Jesus have been distorted into something far different than what he intended and that Christianity as we now know it can be harmful to individuals and the Earth. And I tend to fall into a more Pagan/Earth-based spirituality camp. I don't mind her learning the stories, but I guess I am just freaking out that it might start to go beyond that into teaching beliefs and doctrine. I want my daughter to be able to make her own choices, but I am very concerned about teachings that may harm her psyche/soul/spirit by teaching her that she is innately sinful instead of innately wonderful w/ the power to choose to harm or heal.
Any thoughts that could calm my heart? (Please only from those who are sympathetic to my position:))
