Extended prayer at North Georgia school ignites debate

Controversy is brewing in a northern Georgia community after about 50 students prayed together Wednesday morning when school officials said they should have been in class.

The spontaneous prayer at Lumpkin County High School has become the talk of the town. Lumpkin County Schools Superintendent Dewey Moye said that a student started the prayer in a coach's office at 7:30 a.m. and it lasted more than two hours.

"It was a student-led initiative. The student showed up at the coach's office and the coach did pray with them and it went into the school day, over into the first period of the day," Moye said. ...

Oh, guys you mean like this? (By the way, John U.K., I understand that Ulster has some fine tourist spots. Like the Giant's Staircase.) Oh, anyway,

[Lincoln Catholic] Bishop: Pray for 26.2 Minutes.

A story that can make you sad, angry, and both angry and sad. This bishop was converted from apparently a liberal Presbyterian Church, during the time of The New Catholic Evangelization--which unfortunately is still going on.

One can be sad that this fellow was ensnared in a false religious system, RCC Authority (PDF), and one would hope he would make a Pilgrimage From Rome.

The former Lincoln bishop tried to recruit priests (let's pray for 26.2 mins.?) he didn't succeed or the new bishop will either,

Matthew 23
15 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel about on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.---NASB

"The spontaneous prayer at Lumpkin County High School has become the talk of the town. Lumpkin County Schools Superintendent Dewey Moye said that a student started the prayer in a coach's office at 7:30 a.m. and it lasted more than two hours."

Good for them. Not only for the prayer itself, but for the gift of a couple fewer hours of public education.

..Blah, Look how silly I am ..

Ah but I suppose if you Bapty's can delete parts of the OT then you can delete the words of Christ too.

Thats Baptist religion for you.

...Matt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

We don't delete anything but we do let God's word interpret itself. In fact readers may have noticed a difference in our respective postings viz. that we handle the Word of God with confidence and reverence. Whereas you refer to it as a complete stranger and are happier either proof-texting or quoting others because you are not at home with God's word. You are more at home with your denominational writers than the Bible!

As for jot and tittle, you are so busy burying the New Covenant (with its momentous changes from the old order) with the Abrahamic that it is YOU stupid who is guilty of changing God's word to suit your man made theology!

You dare not let God's word speak for itself because it injures your unbiblical notions at every turn.

Which is why YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

I expect you don't agree with Christ here too John .......

...As you gentlemen pointed out pray marathons aren't really Biblical.
Luke 6:12 (NASB) "It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God."

Deuteronomy 9:18 (NASB) "I fell down before the Lord, as at the first, forty days and nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all your sin which you had committed in doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord to provoke Him to anger."

see also Daniel 10

It's quality not quantity that counts!

Daniel wasn't much of a pray in a hurry kind of guy. But his many prayers weren't for appearance sake anyway.

As you gentlemen pointed out pray marathons aren't really Biblical. Prayer As Taught By Jesus, Part 1 and Prayer As Taught By Jesus, Part 2.

It's quality not quantity that counts!

The Bible is full of people praying in public. Our Lord even prayed in public. Daniel was thrown to the lions for praying in public view. Not all prayer has to be in private. I do agree that any public prayer should be born out of a life of private prayer. If your public prayer is to be seen of men and heard of men, then you have your reward. But if I am understanding your post, you are implying that prayer should be reserved for the closet only, and that is not what the Scripture teaches. Forgive me if I am misunderstanding your post

... The First Amendment guarantees Freedom of Religion which means that nobody can interfere with how someone practices their religion. And that includes students in public schools and factory workers if they arrive late because they were practicing their religion in the manner that they wished to do on any particular day.[/QUOTE]Totally agree about the right to exercise your first amendment rights. However, you then will face the consequences of your behavior. If you choose to not be on time to work so that you can pray, so be it. The company may not interfere with you doing that. They also have no obligation to keep you on their payroll. The school has no obligation to not carry out the set consequences they have for students who miss class. Let everything be done decently and in order. The young people took a potentially good thing for the testimony of Christ and essentially gave it a black eye. Also, for further clarification, freedom of religion is not license to do anything in the name of religion. You can't legally have a religion, for instance, that has human sacrifices, or partaking in illegal drugs and be protected under the first amendment.

These kids knowingly violated the rules but the larger point is that the rules should be different. Rather than smothering Christianity at the front door, Christ should be invited in and every subject taught as His creation and under His rule.

I think your 'employment' would be terminated, otherwise they'd be answering a charge of murder.

And they'd be quite right to terminate your employment. You're paid to do their bidding during the hours of your employment! If ya take paid time to do the stuff you want, then you're stealing!
