I recall it as "Do unto others as you would have done unto you".<quoted text>Do unto others as they have done unto you.
And I may have misunderstood some of your post. Not sure if you are stating that the bible should be forced on children or not.
I mainly believe that if we mind our own business instead of others business than we would get along much better
Just a little different wording, but the it does change the interpretational meaning some what, because then anyone has to stop and think, about how they THEMSELVES, are treating others as well, NOT just how others are treating them.
NO, I would never force reading the Bible on children. I don't believe in forcing anything on children, they're kids, and should be allowed to be kids, because people are kids only once in thier lives.
That's why there's childrens books of more parable like teachings, based upon some of what is found in the Bible. Who in their right mind would want stories of darkness, hatred and warring forced upon any child? Some of the fairy tales are bad enough!!(Billy Goats gruff and trolls, evil stepqueeny parents..nope, wouldn't force that kind of stuff on any kid either!!).
I agree with you one hundred percent, if people minded their own business and stayed OUT of others peoples business where they have NO business, a lot of times, people probably would get along better.
Personally, I always found that just trying to tend to what anyone was SUPPOSED to be doing, was always plenty enough to keep busy at, with out having to dig around and start any sort of trouble for others. That kind of stuff is just wayyyyy to easy to do, and usually requires absolutely NO real effort applied to anything, or any brains to do it.
And I can understand why you might feel the way you do, after you explained why. People (in churches or anywhere else) should never take the special help of volunteered kindness for granted, volunteering is a gift to others, NOT an entitlement they're owed, that's for certain!!
