    In our surrounding area (Eastern NC) we have four different Christian Schools. Over the years we have utilized each of these schools beginning with our kids; our grand kids and now we have one great grand child in Christian Schools. One grand child attended the fourth school for about two months..., got put out and ended up finishing in public school.

    Ask me if it's been a dog and pony show. In the one school our grand kids attended this dimwitted so-called Christian woman admitted to God and Country that yes, each and every year she selected one child to pick on. This one particular year she selected our oldest grand daughter.

    In another school the Head Master was under the impression that each and every child enrolled was to be perfect when it came to their individual moral codes. Well, how about that? Kids were expected to be perfect? I thought school..., especially Christian schools were in place to teach not only the 3 R's but also to encourage moral codes as per the Word. Nope..., at this school kids were expected to have it all down pat beginning in the first grade.

    When my son (now 45) was in the 6th grade he was accused IN PUBLIC of cheating on a test. He told the teach that wasn't his test. There were three David's in class with all three having a last name beginning with "M". Each child signed their paper David "M". Well, come to find out it wasn't my son that cheated but rather, one of the others. When I spoke to the Head Master about it he began telling me the School was charged with teaching honesty, integrity and a strong moral base. So, I asked why that instructor didn't apologize in public to my son when he found out he wasn't the one that cheated but was otherwise accused of such?

    In each of these four schools in our area you'll find the entire family at work. The Head Master..., his wife..., her relatives, his extended relatives, bubba's wife from down the street and no matter the situation involving an OUTSIDE THE CLAN child..., it's white washed.

    It makes me wonder why this so-called honesty, integrity and strong moral base isn't practiced by the very ones that preach it?

    ...why? Because there's MONEY TO BE MADE. God help us.

    But, yet, with all these troubles you continued to go to these Christian schools.

    "Good....maybe you aren't as stupid as you thought you were" wow! Ain't that kind and Christ like? If you know Him as Savior, you would be even kinder to others then you are to yourself, Matt. I believe in progressive sanctification, but sometimes your unkind words make it look as though you're stuck in a spiritual rut? Still the Grace is greater than the sin of your unkindness?

    And, no, this is NOT an insult ... it is a Biblical observation by a pastor; so you can't add this to your RD2 badge of honor.:laugh:

    You are a work in progress, and I plan to be the one to help you move down the Narrow Path (Matt. 7:13-14) toward your heavenly goal. I plan to no longer be your adversary, but rather the teacher I've been called to be.

    Rolf..., the issue here isn't about the "experienced troubles".

    It's all about so-called Christians giving the appearance of..., but denying the power thereof. You understand what I'm saying?

    Just consider your most favorite Christian Leader that you have followed for years and years..., who has lead you to believe that Jesus Himself has manifested into this most blessed and motivated individual that you just adore..., only to find out he's a fake.

    If you sent a child to college you'd expect them to learn something along the way, no? If you present yourself to a doctor you kinda expect him to help you heal from your calamity, right?

    So it is with Christian Schools. You approach them with your "little ones" entrusting them to instill not only a superior education over and above the current Nanny State Public Schools but also, to assist in the development and support of a strong Christian background to help ensure their eternity.

    ...what you get, often..., is just more politics. More of the same. The Lord takes a back seat to the local church power structure.

    So why did we continue? We held out hope and had faith that something might change. So much for that.

    So, let me ask you Rolf..., Christian School or Public Skool? Learn of the Lord in a peaceful setting or instruction on how to put condom's on banana's?

    That a homosexual life style is perfectly fine and anyone opposed to such deserves the weight of the State to come down on them? That if you speak in opposition you've engaged in Hate Speech?

    Who is standing in the gap..., Rolf?

    Once again the vanity book writer needs to concentrate on his reading comprehension. My statement was in response to Hamel saying:

    "I 'spoze dat' be 'cuz I'sa jus' ain't ah-smart as uze."

    I actually complemented him by saying he wasn't as stupid as he thought he was.

    No compliment read into your snarky attempt to demean a brother. I can see through you, and I know you aren't fooling God and others, either.

    A quick lesson .... vanity books are paid to publish by the author.

    I have never paid to publish a book. FYI (Mr. Jealousy Wade), I hired an editor to proof read, and format my first two books, and the publisher had a contract with me. My other two books were published by my own publishing and production company and ministry, and the next two books will also be published by my own company, too. So quit making a donkey's rear end out of yourself by comparing my business venture and success with something that is far from factual.

    As for the Who's Who inclusions. Again, you and the south end of the donkey have a lot of mutual admiration for each other as you keep ending up looking like a big one. I was selected to three different company's for inclusion for career accomplishments, and NEVER once did money transfer hands.
    Y
    I have accomplished many wonderful things in my career, and I have always given God the credit and praise. Should you want to mock His work in my life go ahead ... but I don't believe He will appreciate your words. Some of us do work hard and become something that little folk like you will never do. That is unless they give credit and awards to people like you for possessing a coveting heart, and poor self esteem. If that was recognized by who's who, you would be an automatic winner.

    You don't know me brother ... if you did, you would not be so quick to judge. Jealousy, like your pathetic attempts to mock the hard work of others with mean spirited words is a sin. And like I said, your heart has a lot of growth to under go should you ever expect to glorify Jesus with your life. Lucky for you that His Grace is greater than your spiritual failings and shortcomings?

    Maybe you think you're a cute little man (spiritually speaking) but I'm sure God is caused ongoing grief with your continued spiritual immaturity. So Matt, it is time to grow up. Now go and sin no more! :type:

    Self-publishing is just a nice way of saying vanity press. With a true vanity press, you pay them to publish the book and they'll do formatting etc for you. With self publishing, you pay someone else to do the formatting etc for you and then (in today's digital world) they print on demand for you and take a cut of each book sold.

    As for Who's Who lists...I will issue you a challenge. I will get myself listed in a Marquis Who's Who list (this is one of the Who's Who you tout being in). If I am able to get myself listed, will you admit they are a sham?

    And what books have you published in your pathetic little life? Ah. Thoughts so! Writing and publishing one book, let alone six, takes hard work; something I doubt you have the ability to do. After all, you spend your time flapping those mean-spirited lips of yours, and that is like putting your car in neutral and revving up the engine. It makes tons of noise and even more smog! When you write and publish a book, let me know, and I'll gladly write the forward for it!

    Did you know that jealousy is NOT of God, but rather earthly, unspiritual and demonic. I didn;t say this, but in James 3:14-16 are some words of exhortation that you should really read. Here you go [I'll save you the time of finding a Bible], "But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice."

    After reading that verse, here are some more you may be interested in looking at. You have a jealousy problem Matt, and you should get it under control - http://www.openbible.info/topics/jealousy_and_envy

    Go for it. Let me say, if you got in, I'd be the first to laud you for your accomplishments, and then like you, someone with your mean spirit will have all the info on you, your family, employers, etc., and they can stalk and harass you LIKE YOU ARE DOING TO ME RIGHT NOW.

    I am going to write them as soon as I get off the ink to the board and give them your name as a personal recommendation, because that is what you will need to be included. Once you're in, let me know so I can look over your entry. It should be interesting reading for sure. Then I'll have info about you, and so will others, and that info can be used to write mean spirited comments regarding you, by anyone who may take an unnatural dislike for you in the future! So, do it! I look forward to seeing your info in a public forum, for anyone and everyone to have for nasty munition's material to write about you in forums like the one on this board?

    Ah, thought wrong again Dude. I am published, and not by self publishing/vanity press. I've also spent several years functioning as an editor for a major book publisher. You know, one that publishes real books where we give the author an advance and we provide all the editing and formatting services.

    You have a strange definition of stalking. I'm doing nothing of the sort. I am not attempting to delve into your personal life. You are the one that started the stalking a couple of years ago when you threatened to call my pastor and visit my church. Get your facts straight Dude.

    I will let you know when I've been listed in your Who's Who book. Maybe you can support their business model and buy one once I'm in there?

    You are such a ....

    L

    The truth will never be erased ... you were stalking me which was evident in the way you secured my address and phone number, through private resources, and posted the personal stuff about me on the board. YOU WERE BANNED, not me, and all your half truths change nothing. Which makes you a big.....

    L

    Over and over again. Grow up. Vindictiveness is not a God given virtue.

    While I'm happy for you, the facts are Biblically speaking you remain an angry, jealous, evil heated and that makes you a big.....

    L

    In the eyes of a loving God! Grow up, and consider getting help from your pastor. He's a good man.

    Actually, the truth of the matter is that you were threatening to call my pastor (and naming him by name) and threatening to visit my church (you said you would be traveling in the area). I told you to cease and desist with the threats or you would regret it. You did not cease and desist, so I obtained your home address by publicly available (not private) resources on the Internet. I also viewed photos of your house, again via publicly available resources. I then posted your address on this forum for all to see. If you ceased and desisted from your stalking actions, things would never have escalated like I warned you they would.

    Yes, I was banned. That's because you aren't held to the same standard as most other people on this board. For some reason the moderators give you a pass. If I, or Zaac, or several other posters, resorted to same level of name calling that you do, we would be piling up infractions to the point of banning. But, again, for some reason you are given a pass.
