    First work - then success. First to learn a lot, then the joy to understand a lot. Do you fear your children could conquer the world or the universe? I fear, if you should try to avoid "suffering" of your children by doing the right things then you will cause in the end a paradox situation, where they are not able to be happy. Someone who "suffers" to learn to read for example enjoys in later times in life a lot by being able to read good books. The bible is by the way an excellent book- some call it even the "book of the books" (What by the way only means the bible is a summary of books)

    You assume only Christians can make good choices. Christians have murdered people in the name of their religion. The Nazi Party was derived largely from tbe Pan Germans: A radical Protestant and German nationalist movement. Christians murder small babies in faith-healing scams. Your friend, the Pope isn't doing anything about the Vatican pedophile scandal, and Mother Theresa campaigned to ban divorce in Ireland because the Holy Bible opposes it.

    No.

    The Nazi Party was derived largely from tbe Pan Germans:
    From the what?

    A radical Protestant and German nationalist movement.
    What a nonsense. The Nazis have nothing to do with it. Germany was broken in three parts: Prussia, Austria and the rest of the German nations and states. The so called "Great German Solution" - I guess that's what you call Pan-Germanism - meant only that Austria and Prussia should had to stop to do endless wars against each other and unite themselves together with the rest of Germany. Instead of this Austria was excluded out of Germany from France in 1806 and Prussia started under English influence to conquer all other German nations and states and made them to Provinces of Prussia. German (=Deutsch) means by the way "to belong together" - that's why we could call the "United States of America" the "German States of America". "German" and "united" is the same. If we are not united then we are not Germans. I'm for example a Bavarian (Spoken: "I bi' bairisch" = "I am b-irish"). Our German "civil war" was much longer and much more complex than the civil war of the USA and in the end all Germans lost this war. The result were the European wars around 1870 where the Prussians became emperors over Germany. It continued in world war 1 and world war 2 and in the moment is the situation that all German people all over the world are dying out - same with all other members of the so called "white race".

    The Nazis made something what's completely different: They made Germany to a part of their political party - and they tried to make the whole world to a part of their movement. The paradox: On his way of absolute power Hitler reached and overstepped indeed this integration for a very short time in 1938. Then started world war 2.

    Christians murder small babies in faith-healing scams.
    What? Are you completely crazy?

    Your friend, the Pope isn't doing anything about the Vatican pedophile scandal,
    What's wrong - and indeed catholic clerics are much more harmless in questions of everything what has to do with pedophilia than all other male populations of the world. This means not that anything is harmless whatever did a pedophile priest of my church.

    and Mother Theresa campaigned to ban divorce in Ireland because the Holy Bible opposes it.
    What had Mother Theresa to do with the politics of Ireland? Nothing! By the way: What have you to do with Ireland? How do you know what's good and bad for Ireland? Mother Theresa was against divorce as every Catholic is normally against divorce - exceptions confirm this rule. Children suffer by the way very much if their parents don't love each other any longer - completely independent from all public institutions and life-styles all over the world.

    What's quite simple wrong. God accepts every human being without any exception. God's love needs no reciprocation - it's only good for us to love him, it's good to love the love and God is love itself. No human being is excluded from the love of god. If someone likes to know who Jesus is, then we might give her or him hopefully the right answers, which probably is able to help this person. We make exceptions - but his sun shines over everyone - his tears flow with the tears of everyone. And the Lord is able to speak out of everyone to us: The Lord is always Lord, the truth is always true - also if clothed in rags.

    Next you're going to tell me human life is more important than other animal life. Yet humans are the only animals who suffer from Sadistic Personality Disorder.
    They are doing something about it now. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...=.5094b5729c33
    Humans eat animals, we don't eat the Fetus for survival. No comparison.

    Everything was verbal in those days. There was no newspapers and no books written. Eventually the Four gospels were written and many more books so the world would hear from the witnesses that saw Christ rise from the dead.
