what meaning are they passing on to there children
Different religions offer different messages to be passed on from one generation to the next. Most religions try to teach their children the meanings of what they consider to be moral, spiritual, traditional, and most importantly, sacred. Each religion and culture has a set belief structure which dictates the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, and righteous and corrupt. It is up to the parents to guide their children in the ways they believe is spiritually consistent with their belief structure, but it is ultimately up to the individual as to how they will relate to what they are taught.
