    Knight's Good Advice

    Knight's good advice to his own question . . .


    "I have heard the President and a dozen media reporters all say... "go home and hug your children." And while that's never bad advice you shouldn't stop there.

    Hug your children and tell them...
    - That life is sacred.
    - Tell them they are not just animals that evolved from slime.
    - Tell them that they were created by a loving God who gave them a spirit and a soul.
    - Tell them there are eternal consequences for our actions here on earth.
    - Tell them that God loves them and wants them to love Him in return.
    - Tell them that it's wrong to kill innocent children, even children still in the womb.
    - Tell them that life has purpose and meaning greater than the current events surrounding their life.
    - Tell them that we should love God, family, and our neighbors, and that we should care for other people around us.
    - Tell them that God doesn't orchestrate wicked events and that God grieves with us when people do wicked things.
    - Tell them that there IS such a thing as right and wrong and that morality doesn't come from our wicked society but from God Himself.
    - Tell them that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to die on the cross so that we could live.
    - Tell them that God gave parents the responsibility to love our own children they way He loves us.
    - Tell them that you love them and make sure they understand what that means.

    So yes hug your children.... but don't stop there."


    This was similar to Charles Krauthammer's (secular, psychiatric) advice given tonight on Fox News, who said the most important thing parents can do for their children tonight, is to keep them close, tell them they are loved, and safe.

    But of course, Christian parents possess superior comforts to help themselves, their families, and their children, by remembering back on the love of God found in Jesus Christ and His wise comforts promised in the Holy Scriptures.

    Well said, Knight . . .

    Amen, well said

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    btw, if post of the year were in our hands, Knight, this would have been in the top five for most of us, I think, and my personal pic.

    I don't think you (or any of us) could have said anything more pertinent this decade than this right here.
    My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
    Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
    Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
    No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
    Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

    Is Calvinism okay? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

    Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

    "..except the children that we let you murder in the womb, because it's OK that we murder children in what should be the safest possible place for them"
