Looking through Facebook the other day I saw a post from a friend of mine. It was an image with a simple message showing eight inspirational beliefs about teaching your children the importance of caring and kindness. Unfortunately, today’s Church practices something called ‘selective double standard” religion. When understanding Bible values it’s subject to the “eye of the beholder” and the way they interpret the message. Which is not always the same interpretation.
The person that posted this image has been a friend of mine for years and is a good person with one exception. She is a ragging Republican and has asked me on many occasion, “Why are you a liberal?” Or as she likes to call me, “a bleeding heart liberal.” Simple, all my life I’ve tried to follow the message that appears in this image. That is the Christian thing to do.
I came from a strong Christian family, my parents raised me with this attributes. And I’ve passed the same thinking on to my children. Taking care of your brothers and sisters in the name of God was the Christian thing to do. But, that was a different time. Today, some Christians don’t practice what they preach and infer the meanings of these eight simple beliefs with a different meaning then I do.
