It is my job as a Christian to teach my child. Those who love God and are obedient to Him. This includes morality and religion. I do not answer to anyone, but God. If that bothers some people then I am doing my job. What business of yours is it to get into mine? That is what is so troublesome. This has nothing to do with math, english or the like. I will not teach my child only evolution. I will teach both creation and evolution. I will teach them all sides to every subject, but my number one obligation is their soul.
For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring to Abraham what he has promised him."
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
Matthew 7:12 - The Golden Rule
"So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother" (this is the first commandment with a promise), "that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land."
Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
and my favorite:
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Don't forget Luke 6:40:
"The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher."

I won’t worship Chris Kyle or Glenn Beck or Ron Paul. I worship God and only God is my Rock and Captain. You better read your bible. I am so tired of the man worship. It isn’t the soldiers that protect me. It is my God.
TB, I really need you to unpack this for me because I am not in position to search out your previous comments on the thread.
Are YOU arguing for a Jesus/Gandhi "non-violence" Pacifism as the proper response to ALL War, ALL Evil, All Threat?
Are you arguing that God, cannot, will not, does not, has not, take your pick, use HUMAN agency to Provide DIVINE protection? Admittedly the Pslamist and New Testament Writers speak of GOD and His Angels, being our Protector. On the other hand it woud seem apparent that God often raises up "A Deliverer" who is the HUMAN Agent of God's Deliverence and Protection.
I'm a bit unclear as to what understanding you are stressing here an what is at stake for you.
How about, oh, I don't know ...
DEFENDING OUR COUNTRY, RATHER THAN FIGHTING FOR MONEY INTERESTS?

Can someone please tell me how you are going to apply any gun-control in Texas?

wars have existed from Adam and Eve. Now we all have PTSD
I was homeless before and while I agree that many of the homeless lie to get food or more importantly drugs or alcohol, I do not agree lump everyone in the same group. Getting out of the mind frame is the hardest part of getting your stuff straight. Your comment was very heartless. I haven’t been homeless in a long time, but what is money, except paper. It meant more to me when I had none and now that I am starting my new business I can repay all the people who didnt have your attitude.

Can anyone name a time in history when a countries military has stopped it from falling? The answer is zero. You people are foolish. “The military will save me.” Really? My own gun will save me.
Can you name a country that was able to defend itself without a military?
Would that be Switzerland?

Then keep typing the truth. I am. I would actually like to have an intellectual conversation on here, but I guess we just yell now. We are in trouble.

It’s not just Newt either. I am voting for someone with morality and Christian principles. Until we, as a nation, appeal to heaven then nothing will be solved. God will never allow these things to continue. For those who believe God will not allow this nation to fall are badly mistaken. God protected this nation and not our military. Every nation has fallen. Every single one. Why? Not the economy, health care, immigration, or the strength of their military.

I’m going to vent now. I have read the comments on every story here. I cannot tolerate any more stuff about the amphibian Newt. You know, Glenn is dead wrong about his views religiously on Israel, however, politically Glenn has never been wrong. Especially on Progressives. It is Progressives who introduced evolution into schools. It is progressives who have done this to our country and yet I hear how wonderful Newt is. Why? Because you have ears and will not hear. You have eyes and will not see. Read the very last line of Judges and that is where we are. Now we just want our stuff and as long as we have someone leading us then we do not have to lead ourselves. That was Thomas Paines point in Common Sense. Israel asked for a king so they could be like everyone else. I will tell you now, as long as I am a Christian I will serve one King. I am a Christian long before I am an American. Morality and obedience to God has been the only thing that should matter. Punishment for our crimes is coming. Weither you like it or not.
You're right I had fought it but it is true Newt is done...!

Very well said.
My friend while I agree we need a to strengthen our faith but we need to do so as individuals. The Lord gave us freedom of choice and thus we will be judged as individuals. Too go down the road of collective salvation is a dangerous path, while it is my job to give my fellow man a hand it is not my place to force them to take that hand.
" It is Progressives who introduced evolution into schools."
Actually, politics immaterial, it was intelligent people who "introduced evolution" into schools. Or do you really believe the Earth is 4,328 and a few weeks old ? Ever hear of "ontology recvapitulates phylogeny ?"
In Texas we protect ourselves. That man wouldn’t have even got down the street. I own a air-soft gun that looks identical to a M-16. The only way to tell is the orange tip. It is obvious that the guy covered the orange tip. If this is true then the police had no choice.

hide? Are you serious. I just said I do not agree with them. This was an accusation against everyone on here. I will speak scripture with authority.
March 2, 2011 at 11:54am
I don’t agree with these people but I wouldn’t pass judgment because I am not God. “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:1-3).

That’s really nice. I could say the same thing about women, but I won’t because it would only be from personal experience. Is there something that you don’t understand? He believes it is a sin and obedience to God is much more important.

I don’t hate a lot of things, but I hate racism. I hate it. It is the highest level of ignorance and evil. I am a as conservative as you can get and I seriously do not get it. I do not understand what is the deal about the amount of melanin in a human’s body. That is all skin color is. I used to get a spanking from my mother just for calling another person names, but I promise I would not be alive if I had ever said stuff like this.
