You must have told them! Children can't think on their own about such things!

My eldest learned at school and she told her brother ~ it was also my brother (being a few years older) that told me our parents were Father Christmas ..... Thief!!???

Hope you're rolling on the floor enjoying yourself, but can't you remember the curiosity of your own life and how much you found out about life, but not from your parents?

<quoted text>I never had the need ~ they learned of their own accord. The legend of St Nick had a beginning, and so did the legend of the Easter Bunny, and I still celebrate these two very Spiritual occasions with my children and grandchildren. Christmas is extremely special in Australia, to the majority of Australians, and I hope that we continue to share the birth of JESUS for eternity.
Why would one need to tell their children these are lies, instead of telling the true reasons behind these momentous occasions?
And as I originally asked, how in a discussion with a 7 and 9 year old, would you link the Bible to blackmail?
Do you think it is right to teach children that Christians and Religion are evil?
*delusional christian claiming ancient pagan rituals are christian, Jesus wasn't born in December but Horus was and Soltice is way more fun than xmas anyway, just not as big a money making event, as for santa and the bunny, well, that's two other pagan stories, I believe it's reprehensible to lie to children then spank them for lying, what do you think kiddies?*

Yes.
Judging a group of people as evil and teaching your children to judge accordingly, is of course, the right of any parent.

Don't give it even a fleeding thought BMNTB. God's Word speaks specifically about what's going on in here and throughout the world with unbelievers and the way they react and respond to what believers have to say. The only ones they are fooling is themselves.

Jude 1:17-19.
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
_______
But then again according to GW they don't need to even think about it now they can just wait until they're dead, and then they can just say "I was just kidding when I was alive, now that I'm dead I'm serious, I do see the light".
Or even better. According to le_le, they don't ever need to even think about it at all (even after death), because "everyone will be saved no matter what".
So sad, and so deceived.
LOL

You're funny.

Whether I agree or not, I'd still like to see what you're posting. When it looks like a run-on sentence, It gets skimmed over. I used to do the same thing.

If they ask, I'll tell them the truth, but will also explain the origin. I will also explain that we are celebrating the birth of JESUS.... but they know that anyway, it is just a matter of linking the two together...

So your parent indoctrinated you into the cult of Santa, your brother convinced you it was a lie and you continue to indoctrinate children into a cult that you know is a lie.

Can you say "hypocrite" ?

Yep. Precisely. Some of us just like to offer a different perspective and expose lies so they can't keep doing it.

That is exactly the way I feel about all religions.
As for the 'cut and paste', If this were my classroom I would address it. It isn't so I don't. Not just for GW but anyone here.
I understood her post so I think there is a lot of arguing over misunderstandings. BTW, I do not agree with Grace's beliefs either.
Now as too the content of the article, that is as debatable as any doctrine alleging to be based on the Bible. There are a few thousand of them and few agree with each other.
I recall the OSAS and Faith vs Works disjunctions among Christians.....
Then you have the majority of English Bishops who don't believe Jesus is God nor that the Bible is the perfect.
So which version of Christianity is "Truth" ?
The "cut and paste" as you say, is not much of an issue with me. I can see the possibility of it being simply a mistake. I wish the author was on this thread, who knows, for all I know Grace is the author. The link goes to a site called Grace something or other. Anyway the author cleverly slipped in verse references with out actually referring to the verses sited. I can show without a doubt that the verses sited do not support the authors claim without stating my opinion. Only using the books the author sited.
I am not familiar with OSAS so I can not say anything about it.
Faith verses works? That's an easy one. Pride. At the root, both sides agree. It is too long of a discussion for me to get into at this time.
I think there a lot of Bishops or equivalent positions shouldn't be in those positions. They are in them for selfish reasons.
Which is truth? The one that isn't doesn't lie :)
It's after one here and I have to get to sleep. I hadn't planned on being on here this much tonight.
Perhaps next time we can solve the world hunger problem or something easy like that :)
Have a good night G :)
