Don’t ask questions, just believe?

“But someone will say, ‘Didn’t Jesus say that, to be saved, you have to be as a little child?’  Of course he did.  But did you ever see a little child who didn’t ask questions?  People who use this argument must never have listened to a little child or been one.  My four children gave me a harder time with their endless flow of questions than university people ever have. . . . What Jesus was talking about is that the little child, when he has an adequate answer, accepts the answer.  He has the simplicity of not having a built-in grid whereby, regardless of the validity of the answer, he rejects it.”

Francis A. Schaeffer, “Form and Freedom in the Church,” International Congress on World Evangelization, July, 1974.
