I tutor some kids in lower school (on math) and recently they’ve asked some questions about death, religion, and my beliefs. Mostly these questions have been uncontroversial, i know they are baptized catholic, but I also know their mom is not practicing and is very liberal and probably doesn’t believe a lot of what the church teaches. How far can I go with answering these questions. I’ve told some bible stories once and when they asked what happens when you die I gave a fairly vague answer, but I did mention “heaven on earth.” This death question came up when I told the girl, who bragged about steeling a banner, that she shouldn’t be proud of it and maybe should give it someone to repent. She asked if thats so she wouldn’t feel guilty and go to hell…then the question came.
thanks so much for you help
