Hellfire Warning!

I'm worried that some of my fellow Christians aren't up to date on proper theology.  Did you know that the Bible specifically warns Christians that if they vote for a Democrat, that they are going to hell?

If they don't repent in time, that is.    God being merciful and all, he'll forgive you for that Obama vote if you tell him you are really, really sorry in the car on the way home. 

Honestly?  Sometimes I really wonder at my fellow Christians and their stupid-butt stances on certain issues/candidates.  But wow.  More wow is that this article has nearly 400 comments!  I laughed at the original article because the logic about makes your head explode.  But the comments.  The comments! 

I need to stop reading comments.  :/

  1. I'm in a lot of trouble. :) I've seen this sentiment expressed online, even heard it from the pulpit a time or two.

    My feelings? I'll apologize for following my principles when they apologize for following theirs.

    1. Exactly. And I can't say I don't feel realllly doubtful about some people sometimes. But seriously. The dude KNOWS you are going to hell and he has a BIBLE VERSE to back it up.

      So you'd better do what he says, Mary...

      :/ Yup. Pretty crazy stuff.

  2. Well, honey, you know what Sister Cazimir used to say..."if your conscience doesn't convict you it's not a sin. "

    Being a good little catholic girl I used to argue that point with her. Of course it was a sin, regardless. Had I not grown up, I probably could have made that video, too!

    Every time I think I'll lose my mind, a sensible woman like you comes along and puts it to rest! This was timely. <3

  3. Hmm... I wonder how this guy reconciles Christ's words, "My kingdom is not of this world..."

    My politics are based upon an obscure verse in 1 Samuel 8, "Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king." Wanting a strong human government to enforce our morals is a rejection of God's ability to govern.

    Furthermore, if you keep reading, "This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day."

    Yep, that sounds about like what is happening in the US today. I will continue voting Libertarian.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
