“Yes, kids are being overproctected but bullying is not one of those things that can be allowed. I was bullied as a child and now as an adult I have spent a lot of money to overcome those issues. There are teenagers that are not around because of bullying. What about these teens and adults would commit sucide becuase their peers have basiclly told them that they are not worth the air they breathe. Are they dispendable? No! They are a part of the communities they live in and they perform a function to society. But it is this group over there threw rocks at them and told them they were nothing. It is true that we grow when we face hardships, but we need a strong foundation to hold to during those times to grow into strong adults. There is plenty of things that children can face that will teach them how to be resliant and for many of the children getting bullied they already have those hardships in thier lives. In many cases it is not the children of upper and middle class families getting picked on. It is those children that have real worries outside of school or the playground that are the bullied.”
“I am SO sorry! I have heard of ministers who have speak of that believe of women to be subject, that is not a Christian belief! I am currently studying to be a minister in the Christian Faith. I am a Woman! I am one of fifteen (total guess) women in a class of 30 that are going to be a woman leading churches across the United States and even around the globe. This is what I believe and is confessed by the church I belong to says: YOU ARE NOT A TOY! You are a UNQIUE CREATION of God. You have all the same rights as men.
Reading the Exodus passage, I can see where the people are DISTORTING the passage. We are not in a nation set apart for God. This was written so that the people of God would not be swayed to follow. This situation is different. That verse doesn't count in this time and place. I am guessing you do not live in a place that is specifically set aisle for Christians. You are not in a Christian abbey... you are trying to live your life in the world.
I am sorry. Please don't let your experience be all you know of Christ Jesus. I don't know where you live to know what the community is around you, but know, I will be praying for you (not to find God per say) for that there is healing from the wounds from this situation.”
