Re: Your babas baffles are botched
Don't you just love it when parents selectively leave out the parts in the bible that condones rape, genocide, murder, incest, etc.?

The bible doesn't condone that stuff, it happened, and that is/was life back then, but that is another discussion, which I have expressed myself throughly in.

But I do not like it when parents leave stuff out. I try to tell my kids everything, and also leave them with thought, that they are free to choose to believe it or not. I cannot prove it to them anyway. The only way I prove anything is with my actions towards them, and with love.

If you're going to raise your kids as literalists, at least raise them as literalists.

I am not a literalists, but I do believe that you can find God's word in the bible.

Re: Your babas baffles are botched
they just don't talk about the bad things god does

What you perceive as bad, may not be bad to God. His ways are not our ways.

i shake my head at the conflicting messeges parents and teachers and authority figures send at kids.

Me too.

if it wasn't for the fact that its common everywhere i'd go to another country

And it's too late to start your own, oh dam! Just sit there and do nothing about it, yea that's the ticket!

I thought that we gained the same ability as God to determine Good from Evil when Adam and Eve ate of the Tree in the Garden of Eden?

If we have the same ability as God, then certainly we can judge God's actions as stated by Him in the Bible, can't we?

Right, we became like God, only in knowing good from evil.

But I was talking about good and bad, not good and evil. If something bad happens to you, it is not always evil. Seek the Lord more, and those questions can start to be answered.
