Imagine for a moment that you are wrong and the KJV is the absolute truth. The perfect, inerrant word of God. That Jesus Christ is the Word; He is the way, the TRUTH and the life. Now...
If you don't teach your children to follow Jesus, the world will most assuredly teach them not to. You are responsible for your children. Do you want them to go to Hell? When Jesus, at the last supper, said "This do in remembrance of me," He was telling us to REMEMBER Him and to teach our children and others about Him so that they can be saved, knowing that He, the sinless Son of God, knew them before they were created, He loved them and died for their sins (because we can't pay for our own sins without death/Hell) and He rose again, gone to prepare a place for all who believe on Him, so that they can live with Him eternally. Imagine that He's returning for His own very soon.
The most frightening part of Hell is eternal separation from Him with no chance of reconciliation ever again. Choose you this day whom you will serve.
Act 16:30-31 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, AND THY HOUSE.
You are responsible for what you teach YOUR HOUSE.
Read Luke 16. When the rich man died and went to Hell, he wanted his 5 brothers to be told the truth so that they wouldn't suffer the same fate as he. If you die and go to Hell, you'll want your children to know the truth too, but you won't be able to tell them then.
You do know that the KJV is written based on King James believed right? That he approved what was in the bible and omitted a bunch of stuff he didn't want to follow? Once again a bunch of Christians forcing their beliefs down people's throats when they, like King James, only pick and choose what they want to believe. Kids should be allowed to choose what they want to believe when they understand what religion really is. Not just because someone tells them to. What if you went to hell fot using God to control people and he is just pissed off that man made a book to tell people how they should live with him at the center of it and your entire religion is wrong? Seriously, you forcing your beliefs down someone's throat only makes them not want to believe even more and question it

Then your kids are misguided, or not guided at all. No guidance is worse than misguidance. Are you afraid they might listen to a Christian and believe in something you dont? Atheism is like the color black or absolute cold. It's only the absence of all other things. Don't be afraid to expose your kids to as many ideas as possible. You owe them at least that much. If faith brings them the comfort and peace that you lack, why stand in their way? Your threat of physical violence shows that you are actually scared, and that's ok too.
. Hey smart guy white is the absence of all color black is the presence of all color. Its absolute zero not absolute cold minus 273.15. Absolute zero is more like god it's a theory that has never been proven.

Kids can understand Hell just as Adults can.
All kids should be warned of the consequences of Sin unless they Accept Salvation immediately!
Your kids, your neighbors kids, put a bumper sticker on your car for the kids driving past on their way to school!

Yeah, I heard.:/ But let me tell you what I believe, and I'm not shoving it down your throat. Believe it or not. It's totally up to you. I have as much right to voice my opinion as you do.

I believe the entire KJV bible and the bible tells me that God sets up kings and He removes them (Dan 2:21). King James served God's purpose by providing His perfect, written word in the English language, which has provided the basis for salvation moreso than any other version for English speaking nations. Every other English version is based off the KJV, but changed, some a lot, some a little. I stick with the KJV because "if it ain't broke, then it don't need fixin'." I believe it because it makes sense as being truth. God promised He would preserve His word and He did just that. It's a matter of faith.

Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing BY THE WORD OF GOD.

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Psa 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: FOR THOU HAST MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME.

It's established, at least to me because I believe the KJV is preserved, inspired and inerrant, that His word is pretty darn important. Jesus is referred to as the Word of God.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

All truth is based upon the bible, imo. It doesn't make sense to live a life based on nothing. The bible is the foundation of the Christian faith. What better way for Satan to get a foothold than to corrupt the word of God with a thousand different, re-written versions? Psa 11:13 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

As for me going to Hell for "using God to control people and he is just pissed off that man made a book to tell people how they should live with him at the center of it,"--Not gonna happen and where did you get that idea from anyway? You just made it up because that's your idea of what God might be like? It seems feasible to you to do whatever feels right, just trusting your heart, and God will be okay with that? You have no foundation for that belief whatsoever. I believe what's written in the KJV. I know what He's like because I have an entire book that tells me what He's like. It's His book. He is a loving God but He is also a just God.

Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Prov 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh WISELY, he shall be delivered.

Jer 8:9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, THEY HAVE REJECTED THE WORD OF THE LORD; AND WHAT WISDOM IS IN THEM?

The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. See 1 Cor 3:19

1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us who are saved it is the power of God.

Lol I was just responding to your use of the KJV Bible. Everything was to people who are saying 'you will burn in hell'. I came up with that because unlike most people I question everything any way I can. I know everything but neither do you. How was the Bible came up and why is it the way it is? KJV is incomplete and like i said, you can't pick and choose what you want to believe, which this book is

I highly suggest you read the Gospel of Phillip sometime, maybe the gospels of Thomas and Mary as well. You do understand Irenaeus's decision to form the Bible to outlaw Gnostics to put a stop to their pursuit of understanding God through questioning and refining knowledge and understanding; to spread willful ignorance and Holy innocence, right? This is the Rock upon which your house is built?

All Children should be taught of the three basic truths of talking snakes in the first garden, virgin birth, and people rising from the dead, in addition, the true stories of Samson and his muscle hair, Jonah and his 3 days in a stomach, David and Jonathan, Noah and his small boat of 3.7 million animals, and all the other truths that make up Christianity!

Had many job interviews, never has religion come up, but if it did and I felt like it influenced their decision, I would sue their ass off for discrimination.
Not had any run-ins with the law except minor traffic violations, never has religion been discussed.

Just more scare tactics coming from the sheep. Stop being so narrow minded and scared. I pray to a loving God who excepts all, but think Jesus is a story much like jack and the bean stock. I don't believe in after life but do believe in prayer and meditation.
