There is a difference between virtue and innocence. Virtue has successfully passed a point of temptation. No one is a mature Christian until they have attained virtue--innocence is not enough. [my note] That's why so many home-schooled kids and Christian-school kids bail later in life. They possessed innocence, not virtue. They were never trained to persevere until virtue--they were expected to maintain their innocence.
