It's becoming increasingly difficult to honestly teach history and government to my children, when the original intentions of government have been swayed from doing what the Constitution says they should do and should not do. So my children are left with asking which country they actually live in. Do we live in this America the history books describe? Do we still live in the America that was established with our Constitution protecting us? Do our history books even tell the truth anymore?
Yet, I feel the same way about the Bible. Do Christians really live as the scriptures says we should? Have we left the original intent of Jesus' sacrifice for us? Does religious history really tell the truth?
At this point, history is up for debate. The Constitution is up for debate. Christainity is up for debate. So how do you teach your kids to live right?
Live peaceably. Some things aren't worth going to jail over. There will come a time when we may need to be 'sacrificed' for some greater good, but for now deepen your faith in Christ our Lord and He will lift you up.
