The message being forced down our throats in our nation today is all roads lead to heaven. Really? Here’s a fascinating look into the religious practices in Nepal involving babies and little girls. You can read (click on the link below) about the real-life Nepalese child goddesses whose feet don’t touch the ground, who live in temples and are forbidden from WALKING until they reach puberty. The ‘living goddesses’ are chosen as infants and adored by thousands of Hindus and Buddhists until menstruation. The Kumaris are an incarnation of the goddess Kali and are seen as protectors from evil and a bestower of good luck. The young girls are sheltered away – and cannot go to school – until they are required at festivals and processions.
America is no longer a Christian nation
While this is an interesting story (accompanied by equally interesting pictures), it reminds me how over a million new immigrants flood into the USA every year, and with them they bring their gods, religions, and religious practices. This is part of why Obama was emboldened a few years ago to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.
Our children (and we adults) are getting the clear message that all religions are equal, and all roads lead to heaven. Therefore we must accept the beliefs of others as valid. Our kids and teens have been totally intimidated into never expressing their views that Christianity is the true way through Jesus Christ our Lord. What a perfect way to shut down evangelism and keep others from knowing true hope and salvation. (Remember Acts 4:12? Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to all men by which we must be saved.)
Everyone Deserves Respect
Of course, we should never be condemn, ridicule, or intimidate those of other beliefs, and we want to treat them all with respect and dignity. But we cannot let our children be crammed into the politically correct box of denying salvation through Jesus, the only door to heaven.
How are you as a parent training your children to deal with this new aspect of American life? How about those of you who live in Australia (You have a bigger percentage of immigrants than we do!) How do those of you in other nations handle this very real issue for Christian children and youth today?
