We talk in the military about resiliency. This is psychological hardiness or the ability to endure hard things and survive. Around the world, faith is a pillar of resiliency. If you don’t have faith, you are missing one of the critical tools that are available.
There is only one real God we can put our faith in. But God gave us free will. We are not his puppets. We can choose to accept him. This idea of faith and the idea that bad things happen in this world led to God sending you. So how are you leading your life?
It’s time to put away the cellphone, text messaging, and video game. It’s time to get a real-life full of purpose and meaning. Walk away empowered and enriched.
It’s so important that we come to the issue of violence from the critical perspective of faith-based. You have to take the bad stuff out before you can put the good stuff in. Dragging our kids to church once a week can’t simply overcome 40 hours of violent movies and video games.
Today we continue the conversation on Grooming Our Kids for Love and Not Violence with Lt. Col. Dave Grossman. He understands how the military trains to kill and warns of the real dangers to our children in today’s video games.
