Stage 2: Infant

First Peter 2:2-3 describes people who are like newborn babies, craving spiritual milk so they can

They are spiritually alive and have made a decision to follow Christ but that's as far as they've gotten. They can be characterized by statements or questions such as:

  • I need to go to church regularly? I've never heard that before.
  • I need to pray regularly and read the bible regularly? I've never heard that before. How would I do that?
  • I didn't know the Bible said that.
  • Tithing? What's that?
  • I've always connect with God through nature. Being out-doors is my church.
  • I don't need anyone else. It's just me and Jesus.
  • I need someone to regularly care for me.
  • I know Jesus is God, but isn't karma real too?
  • Trinity? Huh? Now you've got me confused.
  • My wife and I just got baptized, and on the way home from church we got into a big fight. What's up with that? I thought Jesus was supposed to take care of all our problems.
