Merry Mail 4-3-12

Giveaway: This is the last week to enter in the drawing for the 180 movie giveaway. This is an excellent resource for you to have and share with your loved ones and friends. It will spark intelligent conversation about one of today's most difficult subjects {abortion}. This film will cause people to think about abortion and question the propaganda fed to us all via the news media and culture. All you have to do to enter {click here} leave a comment on the post. 

IndoctriNation: If you have children, especially if they are enrolled in public schools, I highly recommend watching this movie. Our family has chosen to homeschool our girls for a variety of reasons (most of which I just believe that this is what God wants for our family) and this documentary just reinforced that decision. I have heard many parents say that they know the schools teach evolution, so they will just teach their children the Genesis account of creation at home and to ignore the evolutionary "theory". This documentary shows in great detail how the teaching of evolution is not the only problem in the government schools. There is SO MUCH MORE at stake! As a Christian Sister, I urge you to watch this documentary with your spouse and then have a heart to heart conversation about your children's education.

One powerful statement was made concerning the argument that our children are to be salt and light in the public school (an atheist educational institution). The pastor said (my paraphrase) that if you truly want to be salt and light, why not send them to a Muslim or Hindu School where you know all the other students are unbelievers? If you did that, then people would say you are crazy. What is the difference, really?

Daily Scripture Reading for the Passion Week: I should have gotten this out earlier in the week, but here is a list of the scriptures that correspond to each day of the Passion Week (week between Palm Sunday and Resurrection {Easter} Sunday). Follow along in your Bible to see what Jesus was doing the last week of His life on Earth.

Easter Story Cookies: If you have little kids at home, this would be a wonderful visual representation of the Easter story. I am going to attempt to do these without the eggs {my daughter is egg and dairy free} - wish me luck!

Are you a Christian because you {fill in the blank}: Have you been following along in this series as I try to help debunk some of the popular ways people in our culture are self-deceived into believing they will go to heaven when they die. I'd love to hear from you about any experience you have had with these popular, yet sad, reasons why people believe they are saved. I know some of these hit home for me. There were many years that I believe I was very far from the Lord, but if you would have asked me, I would definitely have said I was a Christian.

I love to hear from my readers so if you are thinking something that is beneficial and profitable (which does not mean you have to agree with me, but at least be nice), then I would love to hear from you!
