I understand what you were saying. It's a lovely concept, but reality often sh*ts on concepts.
It was the choice of words that hit home.
I understand the ideas of giving one's child to God, like the folklore of Hannah and Samuel, or the stories of Abraham and Isaac or Jephthah and his virgin daughter. Originally, the Jephthah story is probably closest to the idea of giving a child to God. I just don't think Christians think of the implications when they rotely babble off their religious platitudes, while making decisions for their children.
I understand the idea of a parent being proud of their child for serving their country, and watching the military turn their often immature kids into productive adults. The difference is, I would think, that every caring parent has often thought of the implications, during a time of war, when their child joins the military. A choice the child made.
I have just never met any of those millions of parents who happily sent their child off to die for their country.
But I don't get out much.
That is the problem with religion, generally. That fundies can have children.

"STOP RESISTING ME!" Is *that* your idea of a sense of humor? It sounds more like something you told the little boy out behind the church last Sunday.

Anyone who points out your hypocrisy and horseshit is "unfair" in your eyes; is that you you see it?

Besides, the Gospel of John is a proven fraud and full of lies and blasphemy.

Many religious scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda, but he didn't like to talk about it.
As proof, they cite a verse in St. John's Gospel where jesus tells the crowd;
"For I did not speak of my own Accord..." - John 12:49

If you are a Christian, one who has been truly born again of the Spirit, and one who is truly following the Lord Jesus Christ, Be warned! You have an enemy and he absolutely hates you because he hates Jesus Christ. That is right, you have a very real enemy, and that is the Devil himself. The Bible warns us in the following verse about the devil:

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:(1 Peter 5:8)

GET SAVED

Then explain to the class how atheism is a "religion." What are its rituals? Where to atheists gather to worship the non-god? Why don't atheists have tax-exempt status?
Care to explain?

But some atheists would say that so they have 1st Amendment rights.
Atheists already have First Amendment rights, along with every other citizen in this country. No atheist would ever claim atheism to be a religion; that's just a blatant lie.

Jesus Declared That

He Was The Only Way -

to the Father (John 14:6)– his Father is in heaven ( Matthew 7:21, 10:32-33) so He was telling us that He was the only way to heaven. Jesus also said that some who called Him Lord were not truly His children (Matthew 7:21) but only those who do the will of the Father. Jesus asked His disciples who they thought He was, and Peter acknowledged Jesus to be the Christ (Messiah)(Matthew 16:13-17). Either Jesus Christ is the Messiah or He is not! That means that every person on the planet, whether Jewish or Gentile, has a choice to make concerning the Messiah.

I choose ro believe Jesus is GOD

I have been participating on this forum for a long while.. This afternoon I stood by my mothers bedside as she took her last breath in this world. She was a christian and believed that she would be entering heaven; now I dont know if there is a heaven or a hell either one...what I DO know is that for all the debating, arguing insult and mud slinging about what is and isnt real and the truth and lies, shouldnt we as adults be able to accept the fact that others have the right to not believe as we choose to and not be condemned?..

After Jesus rose from the dead He encouraged His disciples to preach the gospel to the whole world. Jesus told them that the believers would be saved and the unbelievers would be damned.(Matthew 16:15-16) What does it mean to be DAMNED according to Jesus Christ? Listen to Him for yourself!

Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?(Matthew 23:33)

Jesus is Lord
