Same thing. The "meaning" would include the "source". Nice try though<quoted text>
Heres something funny:
20 In the future when your children ask you,“What is the meaning of the laws,·commands [statutes; ordinances; requirements], and rules the Lord our God gave us
Wait, the children QUESTIONED and nothing happened? See how you didn't read bible?
They questioned the "meaning" of the laws, they never questioned the source of these requirements.
Dont try to change your tune now. First you said they couldnt question anything. Well there it is for you....There are important questions, and then there are less important questions. Why did God create so many different kinds of insects? Not a very important question, it's a question a child would ask, just like the example you gave asking the meaning of the laws, and not questioning the source of these laws. The question should always be, is there a God who actually created these insects. Indoctrination and preconceived notions lead to childish questions. Higher intelligence and skepticism lead to the important questions, does God exist? Who wrote the Bible? Are miracles possible? Why can't science address the issue of the existence of God? Is there a supernatural realm? What evidence is there for life after death? These and many more are IMPORTANT questions. What do the laws that God issued mean, are not very important.
