Teaching Biblical Doctrines
to Children

CURRENT PROGRAM: July 13, 2024

with Michael Joens

CURRENT PROGRAM: Saturday, July 13, 2024

My family and I are currently on a road trip to northern Kentucky to visit the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, both of which are owned and operated by Answers in Genesis, the ministry founded and led by Ken Ham, which boldly proclaims the authority of God’s Word and the gospel.

We have been conducting interviews with Ken and several others during the visit that we are going to air next week on the program. In fact, later in today’s program, we are going to air a portion of one interview with Bryan Osborne, an author and popular speaker for Answers in Genesis that we did on site at the Ark Encounter following his presentation on the global flood detailed in Genesis 6-9.

Before we get to that, we are going to air an interview our longer-time listeners may remember from back in 2016 with Michael Joens, an animator and creator of Theo, a 15-episode series dedicated to teaching children God’s Word and the gospel.

Joens is a highly credentialed animator, having worked for studios such as Hanna Barbera, Filmation, Warner Brothers and Marvel Productions.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says, “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

What are “these words” that are to be on our hearts and taught diligently to our children?  Biblical doctrines—truths about God and how we are to live and worship Him.

But how?  How can we teach biblical truths or doctrines to children?

One excellent way is through an animated cartoon series called Theo.  Our guest this weekend on The Christian Worldview is Michael Joens, the creator and director of Theo, a 15-episode animated cartoon series that we highly recommend and are offering to listeners.

The production and teaching of biblical doctrines in Theo is of the highest quality and we encourage you to preview and order the series for your children and grandchildren.  You will enjoy and learn too!
