Question: Is There An "Age of Accountability" Identified In Scripture?
Reader, the following question is from my email:
Ms. Ann at what age are children held accountable by God for their sins??As far as I know there's no "age of accountability" identified in Scripture. There is nothing in the Bible that says, "Here is the age and from here on you are responsible!" I really would like to think the reason for that is because children mature at different paces.
That would be true from culture to culture, and from age to age in history. So the Lord in His wisdom didn't identify a specific moment. God knows when each soul is accountable. God knows when real rejection has taken place; when the love of sin exists in the heart. When enmity with God is conscious and willful. God alone knows when that occurs.
What do y'all think, is there an age of accountable?
