Abstract

The believing parent as an example of faith: Practical-theological perspectives on equipping

This article focuses on the unintentional process of learning that takes place in a child, especially with regard to the influence of the religious example of parents and peer groups. Firstly, applicable basis-theoretical material from Scripture regarding the necessity of an example in faith is analysed. Secondly, the processes of socialization and modelling are explained sociologically. Finally, some practical perspectives are suggested with regard to the minister’s task of equipping parents to realise the necessity of their practical example of faith.
