We learn what God is at the endWritten by Robert Kress
DEU 4:27 And LORD shall scatter you among nations, and ye shall be left few in number among heathen, whither LORD shall lead you. DEU 4:28 And there ye shall serve gods, work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
From DEU 31:16-17 until end, it was a mystery as to what God is.
DEU 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. DEU 4:30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, ***even in latter days,*** if thou turn to LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
DAN 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up words, and seal book, ***even to time of end:*** many shall run to and fro, ***and knowledge shall be increased.***
HAB 2:2 And LORD answered me, and said, Write vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. HAB 2:3 For vision is yet for an appointed time, ***but at end it shall speak,*** and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
TAKE HIM AT HIS WORDWritten by Cadi Nobles
Most of problems we encounter later in our lives stem from things that began when we were very young. Mistakes and misconceptions that were fertilized and encouraged to grow, can often cause us great harm as we age. Often, if seems like a small thing at first, even innocent. For example, teaching children about tooth fairy or Easter Bunny may seem fun and harmless, but there will come a day when that child wants and needs real answers. No sane adult still believes in tooth fairy or Santa Clause, so that means at some point in their lives they were introduced to evidence of reality. There was a moment that they discovered for themselves that it had all been "pretend." For a while, they may have felt like that victim of everyone's joke. All adults (including their parents) had known and was involved in encouraging them to believe a lie.
In some skewered way of thinking, we might chalk this up as a real "life lesson." While Santa Clause and Easter Bunny tend to go away quickly, there are some things that will take much longer. Allowing children to learn and accept Evolutionary Theory from a very small age is a well documented mistake. The "fend for yourself" mentality of teaching can shape and mold young minds far more than we realize. While liberal scientists like to promote theory as basically proven fact, and force our attention away from obvious flaws and holes, we are often fooled into believing that this teaching will go no farther than classroom.
History has proven that to be utterly false. Many might not realize that Adolph Hitler studied and fully accepted Darwin's theory of evolution as a young painter. This adamant belief in "survival of fittest" is what he cited as his entire justification of a perfect race. Hitler believed he was merely fulfilling ultimate will of evolution, doing his part to assure perfectly evolved race would come about more quickly.
It never ceases to amaze me at "Christian" parents and teachers that seem totally willing to allow this poison to enter young minds. With some vague argument like "separation of church and state" or a line like "let them make up their own minds," heart and soul of our children are simply turned over to wiles of Devil.
