Well I usually post something great , but maybe things arent as great as they we want them to be.. So to the other side..
There will be storms, child
There will be storms
And with each tempest
You will seem to stand alone
Against cruel winds

But with time, the rage and fury
Shall subside
And when the sky clears
You will find yourself
Clinging to someone
You would have never known
But for storms.

“For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 5:18-19 RSV) Clearly the Old Testament is to be abided by until the end of human existence itself. None other then Jesus said so.
2) All of the vicious Old Testament laws will be binding forever. "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." (Luke 16:17 NAB)
3) Jesus strongly approves of the law and the prophets. He hasn’t the slightest objection to the cruelties of the Old Testament. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place." (Matthew 5:17 NAB)
3b) "All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness..." (2 Timothy 3:16 NAB)
3c) "Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God." (2 Peter 20-21 NAB)
Nice sermon, Satan Daddy. Now can we have the coloring books and crayons?

Teach it as literature or history. There alot of great stories in the bible no matter if you are religious or not. Or you could possibly offer a religion course as an elective but not a requirement. But, you would need to teach about many different religions and tell stories by comparing contrasting stories from different religions. Like the story of Noah from the christian bible and the story of Giglamesh from the Koran. That would be a good compromise.

The problem is that they would not stop there. They would pick and choose rather than teach the truth and they would teach it as fact. They would use peer pressure and a punishment reward system to brain wash children in to their cult

Oh no, that is a bit dramatic. They could just teach the history and stories from all kinds of religion. That is how it is done in college. It would not be taught as religion see and that way it would not offend anyone with different beliefs. In college, I took several relgion courses. We studied the history of christianity, catholic, prodastant, all kinds of denominations, ancient egyption religion, ancient greek mythology, and it was facinating. There is so much history to all of it. This would be the only way to get folks on board. The kids would simply be learning history. Then if you wanted your child to study your denomination in a more religious outlook, you could take them to sunday school or however your religion does that. The kid would already know some of the history and you could build on it. They will learn all this stuff in college anyway. The first paper I had to write in college was on ancient egyption religion. My goodness, that was a hard paper to write. They had a god for everything. lol I got an A though. But it was interesting and through all those courses I never once joined a cult. It helped me to better understand religion. Just a history class, nothing more.

My wife took a worlds religions course in college. However there is a difference in presenting the different religions to a college student and teaching the bible to young children.
The people pushing this have the agenda to teach the bible as fact and Christianity as the only true religion. They want to indoctrinate young minds with their idea's and beliefs.
If a class on worlds religions where to be properly taught in school there would be more children questioning the christian cult

I am always asked why do I bash and attack the christian cult? Why can't I let them believe what they believe and forget about it.
There are two reasons, one the christian cult members try to force their beliefs on to every one and every thing in our society,
and two the number of threats and hate filled comments we recieve has put me in a state of mind to fire back.
Turn about is fair play
BURN THE CHURCHES!
BURN THE CHRISTIANS AT THE STAKE!

How is it that I can label the christian religion a cult? Simple, they deny others the very rights that they claim for themselves

Its a shame they cant compromise. The history of religion is facinating, but u cant force religion down peoples throats. That is the definition of a cult. Its better to be open minded and u might find that u can learn something from them all.

Pentagon leaders have suggested the possibility remains that no troops will stay in Afghanistan after 2014 should Karzai not agree to a deal granting immunity to U.S. troops from Afghan laws.

Obama supported those statements saying "it will not be possible for us to have any kind of U.S. troop presence post-2014" without such an agreement.

That's cool spaceship dude, but why don't you fly over Afganistan and blast the camel humpers? You really don't have a spaceship do you? That other spaceship dude had a picture of his ride. Don't tell me you have your cloaking device on either.

Studying the bible helps children learn how to become moral adults. Atheism can't teach you how to be good.

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?
Not forcing you to do anything!
It's called rules for Bible study, Not Religious study, Not Christian study!
The Bible is History of the Jews, and formed the United States!
If a kid gets more out of it... it's up to God!

The only religion that uses a symbol for their religion that was a form of execution is the christian cult with its cross. You do not see other religions wearing hang mans noose or gallows, or the guillotine do you? Crucifixion was a very inhumane form of execution and this is what the christian cult uses to as a symbol for what they stand for. Tells you something about the christians love for blood
Thanks again!

The Cross a symbol of male sex organ worship.
The people of the ancient lands used the cross in worship, some, like the Egyptians used it in Phallus worship, or, worship of the male sex organ. It was used as a symbol of fertility.
"Various figures of crosses are found everywhere on Egyptian monuments and tombs, and are considered by many authorities as symbolical either of the phallus [a representation of the male sex organ] or of coition.... In Egyptian tombs the crux ansata [cross with a circle or handle on top] is found side by side with the phallus." A Short History of Sex-Worship (London, 1940), H. Cutner, pp. 16, 17; see also The Non-Christian Cross, p. 183.
So you could say it's irony that Jesus would support a wearing of a symbol of sex worship from pagan religions he opposed.
"The Cross a symbol of male sex organ worship", and
I thought SP was the stupidest poster on here... It's a tie!
