I have watched the world change sometimes it seems a snail’s pace as events continue from days into years. Sometimes overnight the world changes. Mostly I like good change – things that make my life easier and I make every attempt to learn each new, exciting piece of technology.
But there are other areas that truly make me sad. In modern society’s attempt to accept everyone and prove they have a superior tolerance and acceptance of everyone, they are often pushing out the very thing that makes them who they are. No wonder there is such chaos now.
This is especially seen in modern society’s lack of acceptance and tolerance in the Christian religion. It is being pushed aside and taunted as ignorance, idiots, uneducated and evil. I do not understand. I come from a long line of Christians (I keep repeating in Life Changing Days) and today I only see sadness.
Our gatherings were often Christian based. Our giving, tolerance and acceptance was Christian based. And by far the most sad thing to see being eliminated in our schools is the Christmas pageant. I cannot, try as I might, explain the feelings of peace, goodwill and happiness I experienced at Christmas time.
It’s hard to tell my own kids about those feeling as I can’t explain – but I could show – by doing the pageant, by the songs, the Christmas tree and by people gathering together with one cause – to celebrate the birth of Christ.
So, if one can stop and reason – think. It is politically correct to accept and tolerate everything regardless of how outlandish and everyone else but yourself – the very thing that makes us in North America who we are. We are a Christian nation and to take that away is as sad as taking the Christmas pageant from the schools and denying our children that wondrous season.
Christianity is a big part of my life. I am not going to deny it for any modern trends or ideas. To accept any and all beliefs, I must first acknowledge my own.
