I agree about the younger generation. My daughter and her disrespectful friends are prime examples.
I guess I royally screwed up by not teaching her "religious values", although I tried, I failed.
Bless your heart! I know what you're going through, as
My kids when through a time of doubt (one still going through it)
Just Live what you believe, Pray, and they'll see it in you!
God's Blessings to you, and Trust in the Lord!
Amen!

United States was founded upon God, it's a shame how it has changed. The truth is everyone wants to live forever in control of their health, wealth and prosperity. People think they are Gods who control the happenings in this world. For a space of time man will plan and prosper but in a blink of an eye the hands will change the roll tide. I have seen and heard a lot in my day. People will decide what to believe as it accommodates the desires of their hearts. Those who choose not to believe or look away from the truth understand but pretend to not see. The truth is out there!!! You already believe!!!
Great post!
God Bless :-)

You've had bullets wiz past yer heard, you know my story!
There is no way for the bullets to get to the back of my jacket
without passing through me! No sound of a bullet passing my ears, only the pop of the .22 (SS remington... my first gun)!
Take a laser pointer, tape in on a broom handle (I don't want you shooting anything), put a mirror on the ceiling, stand dead under it, and aim.... No way to get 2 lead lines down yer back 1/4" apart starting at yer shoulder blades!
Why?
God Knows!
I Do Not Know the specifics of your story... I do Know Guns and ballistics... I do Know that dope makes people see things that go bump in the night... I also know that two .22 rounds Did Not Pass through your body without causing damage.... Delusional People often think their delusions are reality.... Thinking so does not make it so....

Wow, that's sad for you. As a mom of three, I'm proud of all my children. They're very thoughtful, very caring and very accepting of others and the differences in individuality that everyone has, as well as Very giving of themselves and their time, work hard when need be... and I wouldn't trade any of them for the world.

That is beautiful. I agree.
My only son has grown into a wonderful, responsible, loving adult.
No drugs, no alcohol, no crimes or jail, no disrespect, no STDs....
He never made me worry.

And all without any religious nonsense whatsoever.
Just taught him good ethics and morals...and set a good example since I actually LIVED by those lessons.

It's great to have good kids, isn't it?

Everything in that statement is true, but I would have you read carefully the last four words in the first quote:
"... until everything is accomplished."
There are 58 words in the verse,

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished".

and the last four are all that matter, just a little cherry pickin, maybe?

So what happens to the gentiles that died before the second covenant came into existence. Are the gentiles who committed idol worship, sacrifice children to moloch and other sins in hell-fire are they just in the grave asleep?
They stay dead, just like the gentiles after the fairy tale.

I bet you have worried the crap out of him. That witch stuff ain't no religion? Hum merry meet and merry fart. Ain't no freakin' witches in no woods. Maybe the boogie man, but no witches. Dudette you ain't right. My maw said I was a good kid after a bunch of beatins. I found some morals in the edge of a woods one time, pretty good fried up.

Our school was founded on beliefs of the bible. Schools began in churches. How could it be wrong to teach morals? To me, it's unconstitutional to not teach what our founding fathers believed so much in.
The Constitution talks about a seperation of church and state :/

You are all so dumb.
Leave religion out of school.
If you implement it, you might as well teach us all to be every religion, considering this is NOT a christian nation.
Keep your Christianity away from me, and I will continue to keep my beliefs away from you, if there is a "hell" then it's my fault for not believing, so you can go confine you life to live around a book about an imaginary friend who, mind you, was not the first one. What about the many religions before it, or the ones with more followers, are they all going to hell.
Keep your mouths shut, hypocrites.

I am a good person, to people who deserve it, and I am very intellectual, I am the ideal person. I do not walk around shoving my beliefs down your throats.
I am not on drugs.
I am not a felon.
I have never committed a crime.
I am responsible.
I have never drank alcohol.
I do not need your god, to have morals.
I am a good person, and I wish you would respect my religion, as well as I once respected yours, but its because of things like this, that I have to lose respect for it.
I have to hide my beliefs because you people are so intolerant.
But if i don't blatantly say it, you can't tell that I'm not a Christian, so thanks for this.
Good day.

If I leave you alone about my religious beliefs, why do you feel you must pester my kids in their school? Why can't you just let families make their own decisions about God? Isn't that, after all , what this country is about? Why should my tax dollars go to support a religion that I don't think my kids should be exposed to?

Yes it does. The last line of Article VI and the first line of the First Amendment, both, erect a wall of separation of Church and State. Any questions?

I didn't say they were all that mattered. In fact, I said exactly opposite of that. I asked that you pay attention to the last four words as they define the previous 54. The use of the word "until" means that the current status quo will continue <until> the affairs are changed.

until - used as a function word to indicate continuance (as of an action or condition) to a specified time - until
