So many parents are struggle nowadays with raising their children. Children are a real test of the parent's beliefs. If the parents' belief system is off center, then the children will go way off track.
I've noticed that many leaders of all types call people names. It is especially sad when religious people call others that they disagree with various name. In the ancient times the Jews called Jesus names.... They used the terms Blasphemy ... Child of the devil ...
Throughout the ages, they have used terms like "Heretic", "Herasy" etc. as an excuse to murder people with differing beliefs.
I've wondered for a long time about the seeming contradiction between 1John 3:9 and 5:18 "He.... does not sin" .... and the modern day Christian teaching that "we are just sinners saved by grace."
What is our purpose here on earth? Why did God put us here? What does he want us to do? Answers to these, and similar questions will help determine what careers we choose.
One verse that is quoted over and over again by many Christians is:
Matthew 28:19-20 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
