There is nothing new under the sun but the there has been a significant change with in the last generation. Young adults have no limits they disrespect themselves and others. The moral value has declined along with their lack of work ethics. Who or what is to blame, parents who neglect to teach good behavior and religious values. 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!!!

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.

I agree with all of this except the historic inaccuracy. This country was founded on freedom. NOT God. Not all our founders were Christian. Jefferson, Franklin, and Paine of which were deists. Even the most Christian of our founding fathers, John Jay and John Adams opposed state religion. They put more emphasis on "freedom" in "freedom of religion" than in "religion".
And religiously, most of them were part of the Enlightenment and Protestant movements. And Protestants believe in autonomy, not earthly authority. This country was NOT founded on God. The Declaration of Independence used the word, Creator, not God. The Constitution nor its precursor, the Articles of Confederation, weren't religious. Even the Treaty of Tripoli (written by Jefferson, and signed into law by a very Christian founder, Adams) denounces the United States as a Christian nation.
And I can go on and on...
Learning history is very valuable.

And why should young people, or any one, live their life the way you would tell them too? They do not have to bow down to you.
Respect? Earn it. But just because some one has different idea's than you does not make them wrong, it is your thinking that is wrong

It is a miracle... You know guns,
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!

Considering 3/4 of all humans believe in a higher power, and 99% of scientists think there is an alternate universe...
I'd say you've chosen Not to think at all!
Good luck with that!

Yes it's me! We had a troll a while back, so I cycle through my handles depending on who I'm talking to!
Did not the desciples return with a kid that "They" could not help?
IF the power was Given Only by Jesus to Only by them...
Why then did they have trouble? They did a lot in Jesus' name...
You can too!
I'll lead you to awmi.net Andrew Wommack is a Good teacher!
I did cast out demons, and IF you'd have been there... you'd have no doubt!
Jesus is no liar, and I'll follow Him!
BTW Have you prayed for Wisdom yet? When I did...
Things fell into place (not all, but many)!
God Bless :-)

Psalms 137 1-9
137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yes, we wept,
when we remembered Zion.
137:2 We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it.
137:3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us
a song; and they that wasted us [required of us] mirth,
[saying], Sing us [one] of the songs of Zion.
137:4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a foreign land?
137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget
137:6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the
roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
137:7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of
Jerusalem; who said, Raze [it], raze [it],[even] to its
137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy
[shall he be], that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
137:9 Happy [shall he be], that taketh and dasheth thy little
ones against the stones.
I doubt you can tell us why this was written, but do
take a crack at it!

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?

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?
