I have to justice this! ...Now
I've been putting in applications in for a month now and I got one or two interviews but I wasn't getting a job because I wasn't 18. I kept thinking 'I'll wait, something will come along.' But I kept getting told by certain people 'you need to get a job.' It was begging me because I was gonna get the same thing. But I just a call from a place that will hired someone under 18.
I know it's not really the same as finding someone but still if you wait God will provide.

(Ever seen the vegetales? There's an whole video on letting God provide.)

brainwash? you have the wrong idea my friend. Introducing and forcing are too different views. I have faith that my child will come to Christ. And secondly I'm not to sure I would take advice from one who would interject his superiority in his name. In hindsight, I will pray on this matter, but you cannot be taken seriously if your name insults the user reading your comments. Maybe you gain that in years or you might be one of the ones in question here. Good guys don't insult or imply negative connotations to our desired meanings, if I was not clear of if it sounded as if what I was saying was that of brainwashing you could bring it up. but thats rude and disrespectful to accuse someone of such acts.


Amen bro!

Whether or not you believe it the truth of the matter is even if you are raised a certain way, you can break away from it, as I did with my family as the world can do with their own, with little to no effort you can choose not to believe that is the only thing I wish not to be in a controlled enviornment. and I am going to introduce my child any way I see fit, as his parent. And that just so happens to be that the blood of Christ washed our sins away. Now when my child gets to a certain age, depending on how knowledegable they are, I will no longer take them to church, they can go on their own, as did my grandparents and parents did to me. This sociological thinking isn't a new thing you are preaching brotha, I have heard this arguement time and time again. How a child is raised WILL NOT dictate how that child will live, you can merely influence. My appologies if I do not wish to introduce the corrupt world to my child, I wish for him to find out himself just how awful it is. Man is wicked and without the grace of God we would all still be.

haha I'm wonderig whether i should scold you guys for getting off topic or not!

I was recently listening to a preacher...think it was last...saturday! He was brought to Christianity at the age of 4 by his mother and even though he went through a lot of hardships ( like being sexually abused twice by the age of 10) he stayed in the faith and kept going in life ONLY because he was a Christian and came to trust God so much. NEVER underestimate the faith of a child. Plus it says in the Bible that you need faith like a child to get into heaven anyway.

Teaching something to a child at a young age isn't indoctrination because when we grow up we all grow out of the things that we believe aren't true. For example! I no longer believe in Santa Clause, the Boogy Man, the Easter Bunny, or anything I was taught to believe in as a child. The truth of the matter is that EVERYONE questions there faith when they get older and EVERYONE comes to their own conclusions in the end no matter what they were taught.

Otherwise we'd have a LOT of milk and cookies going to waste every Christmas Eve rofl!

Santa Clause isn't real!? well dang ;)

"You Are Dumb" made a good point, we need to let our children make an informed decision, but they also need to know what this faith is about. It's not just smoke and mirrors and there's a lot here that we still dont understand. No one has all the answers to the questions kids may have but the message in the Bible is the most important thing to understand (or try anyway).

as for on topic discussion We're over here in Canada just kidding.

I'd say I'm a "good" man, as it were, though I dont really know the definition of a "good" man. We/they are not as far away as it seems though. It's just where God's placed us/them. It's hard to look at a world full of corruption and suff and see the good in people but I have met a lot of people (I work in an airport) and I can see that there are still people who God has placed on this earth who are making a difference.

technically, we didn't we were talking about making future generations of good men/christians lol. and I will have to disagree with rivrstyx and you are dumb, as for aburairukia, I thank you for streaming it back to the topic at hand.

However let me point out just freshly taken sociology that the views of a reformed christian and a scientist are not going to match up. The idea of impressioning a child when he is young, to where he has no future other than the one the father instilled in him at a young age is the scientific approach. HOWEVER, that is not always the case, just like with me, I am an exception to this God awful rule. To instill at an early age factors of christianity does not mean he will be a christian, now as his father I will continuously pray everyday for his salvation, but for him to come to know it himself, I merely wish to instill the values of a christian to him, i.e dont lust, lie, kill, things of that nature. I never did drugs when I was younger, because I grew up in a christian home. now when I was 18 I revolted and tried things I now regret, but thats the very impression I am trying to come across with. The older you get the better your veiws and acceptance of other views come into play, how is it possible for a child to make an informed decision? Without exposing him to the harsh realities of life before the age of 16. That would be impossible to have an "INFORMED" decision at such a young age.

Now while I agree half-heartedly that the child should have the choice I feel it impossible to have an informed decision at such a young age; the child does not know how to put together premises and how to support them. It is the parents job to teach them how to do so--in the Christian manner.
