Our Duty to Young Folk

Description:

A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart begins with God's instruction to Abraham to teach his children. The preacher then elaborates upon the Biblical imperative to instruct and indoctrinate children in the way of God. He spends considerable time in Deuteronomy and Proverbs and cites disastrous examples from the Bible when such instruction went unheeded. He concludes the sermon by citing similar passages from the epistles. He refers to [Robert G.] Ingersoll, noted 19th c agnostic as a counter-example of the influence parents have on children. His emphatic conclusion, lettered large and in red, asks, "Who will be Leaders of Tomorrow?"
