Freedom to Parent

Yesterday was the National Day of Prayer, which is of itself a topic as it's there are people trying to say that it is unconstitutional. My point in bringing it up is that it is a time for Americans to come together and pray for our country. Something we should be doing everyday(Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17) What to pray about? Just look at our world, there are so many things! Our government is one of them, something that effects our daily lives. Pray about/for our elected officials and became involved, voice your opinion! In alot of ways we, as a country seem to be leaving our roots. This is not a good thing. We need to look at other countries and see what is happening to them. Is this really where we want to go as well?
Take a look at this case in Sweden for example. Police 'nab' a 7 year old homeschooler
What? You don't home school? That's not the point. What gives the government the right to decide how you parent? I am not talking about abusive situations here, that is a whole other ball game. I am talking about loving parents who are doing what they believe is best for their child. Are we raising our children or is the government? Who has the best interest of the child in mind? One of the articles I read today talked about creating a "cookie cutter child". 'Robots' are easier to control then free spirited thinkers. Do we want to live in a country where we have no free will to think and dream? Think it couldn't happen here? Oh, but if I only had time to link cases that have happened here, on our own soil! Open your eyes and make sure your voice is heard(& do everything with/in prayer!). Don't assume that everyone has your best interest at heart. Other articles about this family: This one has a video at the end with more more information to help them. Again, more info on when the case will be heard and more info to help the family.
