Kelly wins the prize for having the kids I most want to own.
The boy really does seem to be into his Meditations for the Humanist book…
That is a sad picture to see kids being indoctrinated into the religion of Secular humanism. You do not understand the consequences when the parents find out when they are wrong. Remember rich man and Lazarus .
The Bible refers to the fate of the unsaved with such fearful words as the following: Shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2), Everlasting punishment” (Matthew 25:46), Weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 24:51), Fire unquenchable” (Luke 3:17), Indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish” (Romans 2:8,9), Everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord” (2 Thessalonians 1:9), Eternal fire…the blackness of darkness for ever” (Jude 1:7,13) Revelation 14:10,11 tells us the final, eternal destiny of the sinner: “He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone…the smoke of their torment ascended up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day or night.”
Now imagine this fate to our grown up children, how sad. We must guide them properly, not like this couple decided to do this is plain reckless.
You’re crossing the line again.
Really, damning our children to hell. Is there any depths to which you will not sink?
Are you really here to make us hate christianity? Because you are doing a very good job of it.
I don’t threaten your children with fantasy torture. Why do you threaten us?
I think I get how you feel, however, you must understand that not everyone believes what is written in the Bible will come to pass. What if you lived your life the way you wanted, and someone told you that you’re living a reckless life because you’re not following the five pillars of Islam?
If you feel strongly enough about the fate of these children, then contact your government representatives and mandate an education in Christian theology, because the fate of their eternal souls is at risk.
What is most important for children is critical thinking, not guidance. If they believe in God, great, as long as they know why they do, and that they are still thinking about it. If they don’t believe in God, great too, as long as they know why they don’t, and that they are still thinking about it as well.
Hemant-he sat looking at the book for quite a while. He can’t actually read yet, but I’m thinking some of it might have sunk in!
Dan-the boy can’t read. His soul is safe for now. Thanks for your concern.
Great parody Dan!! That is funny stuff . . .oh you were serious? My bad.
