Your own shyness seems to be very limiting and would you want your children to grow up being even more ununcomfortable, maybe even afraid, to venture out into the world? I just think it's very unhealthy for children to be sheltered like that when they will need to go off on their own one day.
I will be taking my wife and children on the road to the concerts that the Country Music/Country Gospel band I will be doing. And thus the children will not be sheltered from society and the wife will be schooling the children while we are on the road. The school year for the children will begin the day after Labor Day and end on 1 March, thus having six months of school. That is the great thing about homeschooling parents can decide how long their children's school year lasts.
Well naturally I don't believe that anything supernatural is transpiring in Belgium surrounding that statue of the Virgin Mary. There has to be logical and natural explanation for that statue of the Virgin Mary glowing in the dark. Somebody must have put a battery operated light in the statue.
GSTexas, Catholics don't worship Satan, they worship the God of the Bible by worshipping Jesus as God.
When I get married and have children the children will be homeschooled. And there is no way that I will be told by the government what to teach the children. I will teach them about the Special Creation that the Bible teaches and not teach them the Theory of Evolution.

False. Bible-belt Evangelical Protestant Churches are based upon the Bible as they preach the biblical doctrine of salvation. If a church wants to permit individuals with guns to pack heat in the church then a church has that right.

Anyone who eats nothing but fast food and frozen dinners which are loaded with chems and preservatives can't be all that healthy. Might feel fine, but it catches up In one way or another. Bad for the brain too. I should eat much healthier too, but I'm working on it.
But getting health food is too expensive and it is too time consuming to make a healthy meal from scratch. I don't have the time to waste to make a meal from scratch. I have more important things to do than to waste time making a meal from scratch. I get chef salad's from the groery store with Ranch dressing. I also get vegetable trays from the grocery store with Ranch vegetable dip. So you see I do eat vegetables that are healthy and don't need to be prepared.

It is too time consuming to make meals from scratch. I don't have the time to waste making meals from scratch. I have more important things to do then to waste time making meals from scratch. What is wrong with using an outdoor grill and an outdoor oven to make meals from scratch if one wants to make meals from scratch? Kitchen fires happen from cooking. Why take the chance of a kitchen fire starting by cooking indoors when it is safer to cook outdoors on an outdoor grill or in an outdoor oven?

If there is a chance of a fire starting from cooking on a stove and oven indoors then that really is stupid to cook indoors.

I have more important things to do then to waste time making meals from scratch. 15 minutes is too long to make a meal. No, I don't even make toast. I only use the microwave oven.

Why would I want to make meals from scratch when it is too time consuming to make meals from scratch? And it is stupid to use a stove and oven indoors as there is a chance of a fire. It is safer to use an outdoor grill and an outdoor oven.

I only get prepared meals from the store to heat up in the microwave oven as it is too time consuming to make meals from scratch. And going to a restaurant that serves health food is too expensive compared to going to fast food restaurants.

Pentecostal Churches are not dead churches. I have a Nephew and Niece In-Law who reside in Tulare, California and they are Pentecostals and their church First Church of God of Tulare, California is a Bible believing church that preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation.
Unprofitable Servant wrote: I have been silent on this matter for a long while, and will more than likely continue to refrain. However, the thing is John Y, you cannot deny that you practice the RCC means of salvation by attending their services and partaking in their mass. (It is hogwash that you somehow participate only in part, NO ONE watching you would say the same) when you stand in the judgment is your non-denominational brother going to intervene (alas it would do him and you no good)when you hear those awful words, depart from me I NEVER KNEW you???? We should start praying that God will defeat the voices of those who lead John Y down the path to destruction.(that would include SteveR) They are messrngers of Satan set to hinder you. Ultimately only God can open your eyes and heart to the truth but Jesus condemned the lawyers for hindering the path of others. May God silence their witness as He did the girl in Acts 16.
Yes I can deny that I practice the RCC means of salvation because I don't go to Individual Confession, I don't believe that the Mass is a sacrifice and I don't believe in transubstantiation. I refrain from saying the unscriptural statements during the Mass.
Mike wrote: Then you agree with liberal Catholics who don't make the priest cognizant of their views, and thereby get to stay in the RCC, because their views are none of his business?
No I don't agree with liberal Catholics not making their views on supporting abortion and homosexuality known to their priest as being Pro Abortion and Pro Homosexuality is against Catholic moral teaching and liberal Catholics should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. But I am a Conservative Catholic Republican who is against abortion and homosexuality and who doesn't believe that the Mass is a sacrifice, that the Virgin Mary and the Saints are intercessors between God and man and who doesn't believe in transubstantiation. Not believing in those doctrines I listed above is not against Catholic moral teaching. And thus I don't have to make my priest cognizant that I don't believe in those doctrines listed above.

Why don't you think before making such a stupid statement like Francis is the one and only Anti-Christ? R. K. Responds, John you fail to see that the Anti-Christ is a principality much like the Presidency. It's head is replaced periodically. That is why it is called a beast with multiple heads. Francis just happens to be the head of the beast for now.
The Bible states that the Anti-Christ will be a real man and not a principality. The Bible states that the Anti-Christ will be killed and come back to life and thus convincing many that he is the Messiah come again.
Duh wrote: Now here is a genuine church amongst whom the Lord Jesus walked. But he warns of a few that held to false doctrine and caused some to stumble. He says that he would fight against them if this was not sorted. Christ as head of the church hates false doctrine! In this case only a few were infecting the rest. In the RCC the whole is corrupt. Do you suppose that Christ is even present there? You worship in a 'church' where Christ would not be present and still think that you are a Christian? The whole point of worship is to be where Christ is and raise our hearts in adoration t
My Non Denominational brother accepts that I am saved. By only participating in the scriptural parts to the Mass I am worshipping Jesus. And the reason why I still attend the Catholic Church is that I like to attend Saturday Vigil Mass to do other things on Sunday. Another reason why I am still attending the Catholic Church is that I like liturgical worship over the non liturgical worship of Evangelical Protestant Churches.
