It’s true that when we are born we don’t have an intellect. That develops over time. And it’s true that a child doesn’t need Apologetics to run into the arms of Jesus. She needs it later to defend herself from forces that would rip her from the arms of Jesus. Which should remind us of the need to begin to lay that Apologetics foundation early so that the fledgling intellect hungry for information that it doesn’t yet understand can grow strong. Later when the intellect becomes self-aware it will understand and begin to refine that information on its own. We need to give it the proper raw materials or building blocks early.
