Here’s an article from KSL this morning that illustrates Rogerianism in action: http://www.ksl.com/?sid=24264159&nid=1010&title=when-your-child-rejects-your-religion-dos-and-donts&fm=home_page&s_cid=queue-4
Basically, the impression I get from this is that mothers shouldn’t even cry when their children depart the faith, because that’s not unconditional love. Borrowing from the verbiage of my friend Kristopher, What happened to the time when children would dread to commit sin, for fear that their mothers would weep if they knew it?
There is a lot of good in this article—but the final, overall impression I get is that parents should be entirely unaffected by and almost indifferent to the choices of their children. Indifference is not love, and God weeps when His children sin and depart the faith. So why shouldn’t earthly parents?
