Babies Used As A Spiritual Image

Most Relevant Verses

1 Corinthians 3:1-2

Brothers, I couldn't talk to you as spiritual people but as worldly people, as mere infants in the Messiah. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, because you weren't ready for it. And you're still not ready!

Psalm 8:2

Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babies you have established strength on account of your adversaries, in order to silence the enemy and vengeful foe.

Hebrews 5:13-14

For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and does not yet know the difference between right and wrong. But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
