Thanks,

That does help. I was not really bothered by Harry Potter. I just heard some christians warn against it. I agree with you though, it is just a movie. My kids will be exposed to all kinds of things in this world. I want them to be educated about things and not sheltered from them. That way I can help them have a healthy perspective on things. Like some christians do not let their kids trick or treat for Holloween. I do, in their little minds, they just want to dress up and get candy. They do not know about Satan's holiday.

I am just doing the best that I can. I have seen christian parents be so strict and then their kids rebel. I do not want my kids to grow up and hate the rules of christianity because some people make it so difficult. If we really knew Christ for who He is, or if Christians would shed a true picture of Christ, then people would not be turned off by christianity. He is a God of love. Not a God of a bunch rules.

His laws are there only to protect us. I find that sometimes we christians make it more difficult than it needs to be.

I am off the subject. I am talking in circles. I am sorry. I am about to fall asleep.

In your opinion, what is the one thing that has turned you away from being a christian? If you do not mind me asking. Was it the people? The so called man made rules?

Just curious. I would never want to hurt someone in the name of christianity.

Sincerly,
Lynn
