Age & Moral Responsibility

Does age matter when dealing with moral accountability?  Governments are often faced with deciding how society should punish both the young and the old for wrongs they have committed.  The conversation becomes very difficult when dealing with the case of young children.  Should young delinquents be penalized in the same way adults are for the sins they have committed?  On today’s program, Dr. Mohler notes that sin is sin, no matter how old the person committing it is.  The difficulty comes in deciding how judgment should be carried out against those who are weak and immature.
