Christ is the answer to the problem of sin.

Have you ever read the new testament? Which particular part of Christ's teaching do you best think applies to the discussion at hand.

To: Do Be
The more you realize that children are today, right now, being taught that nothing they think or do is ever REALLY wrong or bad or sinful, the more this makes me shudder. Our kids are being prevented from thinking independently. They are being "protected" from our morals and values and being told that what WE think, say, or value is wrong. "Me" counts and ONLY ME counts in this world.


Sin is death; Christ is life.

They are being taught lies are facts and lies become their truths. They think they are creating a society of conformists wherein everyone is "equal" and that they are ALL little geniuses in their own right. But is that what the real result of this will be?


Christ said: I am the way, the truth and the life, he who believes in me will never die.

I don't think so. If no one ever believes they are wrong, how will anyone know what is right? If everyone is the "same," how will those who think differently finally express their differences when they see them? Worse, how will those differences manifest themselves and how will those who are different be treated?


2 Corinthian's 6

Paul's Hardships

3We put no stumbling block in anyone's path, so that our ministry will not be discredited. 4Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; 5in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; 6in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; 7in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; 8through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; 9known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; 10sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
