Walter Scott

The Five Finger (Six Piece) Explanation of Salvation...

Walter Scott, an important figure in the early Restoration Movement would teach children about salvation using the "five-finger method". Notice the elements that he includes:

Belief, Repentance, Immersion, Forgiveness, the Gift of the Holy Spirit, and Eternal Life.

What would you include in your list? How should we teach children about the salvation that is available to us through Jesus?
