Food for Thought
An Guide to Kingdom Living

by Joyce C. Lock

 Flaws in government fall back on the church, as divided we have no voice.  Many have mixed thoughts in voting for prayer in schools.

 Do we want government to teach religion to our children?  The next question being, "Which religion?"  Once that's considered,  "Absolutely not!"  Then, why pay taxes for Satanic literature offered in school libraries?

While some home school, others teach how to be in the world without being like the world.  Still yet, most leave teachings to schools and church.

With God excommunicated from schools, what about children who'll otherwise never hear about Him?  In fulfilling the Great Commission, aren't we accountable for them?  God sacrificed His son for us.  Couldn't we sacrifice to train our children instead of fearing what schools might teach?

Do we prefer our children sharing such things as the use of condoms, or their faith in God?  Whenever we give away their religious freedom, we'll always lose.

History gives evidence to the fall of government & society whenever God is cast aside.  Wherever God isn't only allows room for Satan.

Perhaps government isn't qualified to be responsible for religious training.  However, what we could vote is for all children to have the freedom to pray and express their faith.  Men bled and died for that freedom.

Maybe the agenda of Prayer in Schools could be defined as freedom to follow our spiritual heritage ... freedom of speech, with liberty and justice for all.

God doesn't author confusion, just ask Him.  United We Stand.

lamb-rightThe purpose of this series is to encourage people to live as loving, compassionate, and peacemaking children of God: Jesus tells us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) God tells us through Micah (6:8), "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God." And we know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain, or death. Thus, Christian living requires us to set the standards of these conditions here on earth for our fellow human beings, and for the other animals, as a witness to the rest of the world. To do otherwise is not Christian.
