Teaching today's children about the Word of God can be challenging. With so much secular influence through the media and electronic entertainment, twenty-first century youngsters have a lot of visual stimuli vying for their attention. Most kids cut their teeth on keyboards and use cell phones as pacifiers. In order to keep children engaged in wholesome Christian education, teachers and parents need to employ some Biblically-based technological savvy. In addition to ease of usage, Bible story coloring pages point children to Jesus Christ, rather than introducing them to questionable secular cartoons full of objectionable graphics and subtle, yet damaging messages. Responsible parents and educators can provide stimulating educational materials that are morally and ethically suitable for young developing minds. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6).
Even teachers or parents who don't have home or classroom PCs accessible to students can easily download Bible story coloring pages for bulletin boards or activity time. Students can color black and white line images just like regular books, only with a Biblically-based theme and Christian message. Electronic graphics make great witnessing tools for un-churched children and can be shared with youngsters who may not know Jesus Christ. Classes can make a school project from digitally colored images to email to servicemen overseas or foreign electronic pen pals. A great class project would be to find and download free Bible coloring pages, color digitally, and create an entire children's book! Teachers can add scripture verses, Christian word searches, or fill-in-the-blank games to each page for hours of wholesome fun with a distinctly different slant towards learning about God.
