Is Negativity Bad — Always? Or is Cheerfulness the Primary Value? Answer #6

Don’t be negative. Well, yes that is good advice. Negative mindsets cause us not to reach for solutions. But is cheerfulness the primary value? Should we fail to admit we are facing a problem? Wouldn’t that also cause us to fail to reach for a solution? “Don’t be Negative” is a truth that has been made into a lie in our society.

It is similar to : you don’t have to do the right thing, be polite, work, as long as you are cheerful. Or: anyone who calls you to a higher standard is just being negative, grouchy, and probably old and out of touch.

Here are lies you want to equip your children to face. Sister Sharon uses modern science and Bible to help you be sure your offspring will be okay, prosper, be happy, –have great shalom — going forward.

We are about halfway through our series on answers. I have decided to alternate the apologetics/answers series with other things so you don’t get tired of one topic. Do you like that? Let me know. I think we might be diving into healing and health ideas next. Let me know your questions! Be sure and share with your friends. You see the social media buttons right on the side of the post. Also tell your friends. When I was on satellite radio at a set time, I had a group of moms who would gather in their living room to listen together! Wonderful! Why don’t you give yourself the gift of community this year? Draw moms together.

Answers to Other Religions and Challenges of Education Answer 5

This is primarily a broadcast about the healing of children. Right now we are in a series that answers challenges to the faith. This is important because parents want to equip their children in the modern world so they don’t lose their faith and also because young parents themselves may be wavering in their faith. Wavering in faith does not help getting prayers answered!

However, I am interspersing the”Answers” series with other topics because I have about 9 episodes and do not want to leave behind the original goal of preaching healing and promoting natural health. Originally I felt that the greatest need was healing for learning disabilities. No one was teaching that. I was uniquely positioned to do so. Since then, I have discovered that there is less knowledge about that need because the standards of public school are so very low, and lowering and lowering, although it seems entirely hidden. So what would have been recognized as a painful learning disability even 20 years ago remains unknown. But there is lots of pain — but mostly covered by confusion — these days. So GSB continues to address those pain points with truth, which is truly good news.

Next week we will have a prayer time for our children, and also for the election, as it relates to children. This broadcast, in primarily being about healing never has gotten into politics, and will attempt to continue in that vein. If you are desirous of discussion education policy, please come to www.thegovernmentisnotavillage.com.

Also, since practical health measures, based on the idea that God created the world good and wishes health more than even healing, I have shared good ideas for moms. Then I see and hear so much desire for that among the grandparent generation. Please notice at the top of the page are “tabs” where you may select the GSB 4 Grands page and listen to those episodes. If you would like more of this, and if I get enough response, then it may be worth making a separate podcast and a separate website for we the grandparent generation. Remember, “We will stay fresh and green, bringing fruit forth, even in old age” — which I read is 120 years old.

For today the answers (apologia) have to do with the challenge that all paths lead to the same place, that faith is for the uneducated, and that faith makes one less able to be successful. NOT NOT NOT LOL.

Does Loving Mean Accepting All Ideas?

Young people want to avoid conflict so much that they will prevent important conversations. Of course, peace is of high value. Is it more important than truth? Is it rude, by definition, to have a contrary opinion? Is it better to be politely quiet than to let someone go to hell? Or defend your faith? Most young adults would say “YES!”

Are you and your young person equipped to have an answer in today’s world? Could your teen stand up to an atheist professor? A nice looking, popular friend who mocks the faith? Is this same value swamping your church? Are you equipped?

What I am doing here is an updated version of “Apologetics.” In the best Christian schools, a class called Apologetics is offered. Most of the courses that I have seen, however, have been limited to classical questions and are watered down. In this series, I attempt to answer some of the greatest challenges to the faith in current culture.

Children need these answers, because these mocking, unthought-through values are common everywhere. They need answers. Middle schoolers are talking about this. Teachers mention this. While pastors are not in this world — we live in the world of faith — most members are! We live in a world contrary to faith and mocking of faith. So this 9+ part series, directly addressing current challenges, is vital for any Christian home.

But that is not all! There are bonus episodes in the CD set.
*Bonus 1 CD discussing the importance of Sunday School/Children’s Church and how to evaluate program in which to place your child.
