SCENARIO 1: A few years ago I told my class of sixth grade sunday school students to carry their bible with them to class, and see how many times God used the simple presence of his word to offer an opportunity to witness for Christ. The next Sunday a little girl told me that her teacher confiscated her bible. I asked if she was reading it during class time. The answer was no. I asked if she had, in any way, disrupted the class with it. She said no. She sat the bible, with other books, on the top of her desk. The teacher said bibles weren't allowed in school and removed it. I called the parents, and together we approached the school, explaining to the principal and the teacher that the law against prayer in school did not prohibit carrying a bible. Another Christian chastised me, and the parents, after hearing the story, saying that it would set the child up for persecution by the teacher, and that it was best to just leave it alone. What would you have done? What would you say to the Christian who said "leave it alone?" SCENARIO 2: A man I know is a school teacher in public schools. He is a Sunday School teacher in a Baptist Church. He recently shared with me the story of a boy in his classroom coming to him and saying, "You don't believe in God do you?" The man responded, "This isn't the place to talk about religion." What would you have done? SCENARIO 3: My cousin is the child of 2 missionaries. She was given a class assignment of writing a paper which defending or attacking the existance of God. She wrote a paper supporting the existance of God. She was given an F, with a margin note that said, "You can't defend a fable." What would you have done if you were her parents? SCENARIO 4: I worked in higher education. My supervisor of many years retired. The new supervisor began a full fledged campaign supporting homosexuality. There were groups to teach people who to "be a better friend" to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. There were signs to encourage people to "come out" to you. There were public gatherings and pizza parties and things to "show support for the gay movement." If you did not participate in these things, actively, you were told you were not a team player and you were in danger of being fired. What would you do?
