DIRECTIONS: You Must Be Born Again--but at What Age? - Christianity Today Magazine

Q: I grew up hearing about the "age of accountability." What is the biblical basis for that principle?
—Randy Bishop, Lombard, Illinois

A: This term refers to the time when individuals become mature enough to be morally responsible for their acts and consciously responsive to God's grace. The term is not found in the Bible, but (like worshiping on Sunday) it is inferred from various Scriptures that seem to speak to the early spiritual consciousness of children and their accountability before God.

Me: So can't we all agree that both Catholics AND Protestants believe in Scripture AND Traditions, but that they have DIFFERENT TRADITIONS and ways of settling on a tradition?
Thanks, I feel better now.
