I agree, I have found that more Christians are gun hoe to start the fights and continue to argue the point rather than just read the Bible and let God talk to their heart.
Odd/Funny encounter you might find amusing.
I went to a function where there were many different ladies with different denominations. So, religion had nothing to do with it. This one lady seemed to ask me why I decided to homeschool. ( backed into a corner ) I told her my reasons. Gleefully! :)
Then, the attack came. She doesn't beleive anyone should homeschool. What about... socialization. With my rebutal. church, outside activities, they go to our business and meet several different people. We often go to the Library, ect... Then the hit with Academics,,, Rebutal... My children will be more prepared for college life due to being able to learn life skills like laundry, cleaning, cooking, and all the academics of other children. Studies show that homeschool children score higher than ps children anyway. Attack.. "Sports" Rebutal.. why would I want to put my children around a bunch of non-christian men or boys to listen to them cuss and be rude to each other???
We do fun things as a family like skating, sledding, skiing, ride bikes, ect... We can enjoy each other without all the cussing and my kids get their exercise.
I don't think PROM was a question but she definately was on the roll. It ended with a "I still think you are doing your children a disservice and I believe that ps should be made mandatory.
The funny part of it all...... She brought a homeschooled child to the event with her. She was in the other room. Probably, listening to the whole thing. Why in the world would she ask and attack me when she had someone of her own faith she could talk to this about?
The even better part was that the event was put on by a homeschool mom and at a homeschoolers home. Not even affiliated to the child she brought or even the same denomination as the person putting on the event.
I really think she just wanted to argue. I really think she just wanted to argue with me. Because she could have argued with any one of a number of people that were there. I think we are called to be the light and salt of the world. I beleive that this is our calling to shed light and salt on some of those people that come up against us.
So, just remember.... Light burns and Salt stings. So, go out and burn and sting someone if they are going to ask you why you homeschool. (In a nice way of course..)
But make sure you have an answer to those who ask for it. Let the Holy Spirit give them the rest!
I have no ill feelings against this lady. I just found it amusing that she chose me to vent. Maybe it was a good thing.???? LOL...
Count it all Joy!
