i know my god is still around.and i for one think the bible ought to be taught in school as a suject,for anyone that wants to study it.i know your gonna say thats what church is for..no i don't like the government running my life,its seems we have no choice anymore.sometimes i wonder why we even vote,who ever some people want in office is who gets it.we are in a mess in america. i hope god see's fit to bless us some way,but if we continue to turn our backs to him,he is not going to bless our country.
I am happy that you are content with your religious choices and that you feel your God is caring for you. The funny part is though, that you don't seem to see that if the government did say we should have Bible study in schools there would be many problems created and it would be intrusive government interference. If the Bible is taught then all the other religious books would have to be as well, and then parents would be pulling students out right and left. Would you want your kids to study the Qu'ran or Jewish law instead of doing their math or studying Norse Gods or whatever the flavor of the week would be? I bet not since you want them to learn about your God and your choice of holy book,, and also your personal interpretation of the Bible as well.
And of course those who were atheists or agnostics or who didn't want some person in a classroom doing what they might perceive as wasting time on fairy tales, so then you would have another whole segment wanting their kids out. I have a suggestion that might work better. How about the parents who want their kids to have religious education at school just choose the private school of their choice and send their children there instead? That way your kids can study the Bible all you want them too and the kids of parents who want their kids to go to school for socialization and academics can teach their kids whatever they want at home. You wouldn't be turning your back on God, so really you should be fine, and those who don't choose to worship him won't be required to turn their backs on what they believe.
I agree sometimes it doesn't seem to matter how we vote and it is really discouraging...sigh. But the tides bring in some leaders you might want one time and ones I might like another time, so I guess it all evens out in the end as long as everyone is ethical. That is a scary thought for another thread, but I would say that we just do the best we can and live our lives the way we believe is right...it's all I can personally think of to do besides support each other and turn to each other instead of becoming more divisive.
i understand what you are saying,guess i didn't realize what i was saying,yes i will stick to the god and jesus i believe in.yes everyone has their own beliefs,but it is my nature to want people to go to heaven,because i believe there is one,i don't push my beliefs on anyone,to those that don't believe what if there is a hell and heaven,what then,? the bible i read says every knee shall bow.
