Walls and Laws Can’t Keep God Out of Your Heart

Posted: January 5, 2013 in rants, religion

Ever since I joined Facebook in 2008 my news feed has seen probably hundreds of posts about how the world would be a better place if only kids could read the bible in school or if God was allowed in school. Or that they need God in order to be good citizens.

To address the points about religion in school: kids are in school for approximately seven hours a day for 5 days a week. Assuming they sleep 8 – 9 hours a day, that leaves ~9 hours a day for homework, chores, family time, etc. Somewhere in there could be bible reading time. If you feel your kids need to read the bible, schedule some time for that at home. And as far as allowing God in school, if you keep Him in your heart (like you’re supposed to), no walls and no laws can separate you.

To the last point: does a person need God, or any deity, to be a good person? To say that’s true is the same as saying all Christians are good citizens and everyone else is bad. If you truly are a Christian you wouldn’t judge someone, let alone billions of people, just because they may have a different view than you.
