What is the age of accountability?
The phrase “age of accountability” is often used to refer to the period of human development when a child becomes capable of knowing the difference between right and wrong. Perhaps the first expressions of this come when a child begins to make decisions to obey or disobey their parents. It is important to consider this topic biblically in relation to other theological implications. For instance, if the bible recognizes and teaches an age of accountability what does that mean for Calvinist doctrines which hold that all men are born guilty or sinful in God’s eyes?
