Actually, I think it is appropriate for this baord as we discuss aspects of parenting. I think that a discussion about religion and parenting and children's behavior is relevant.

if the goal is a common good, it really doesn't matter what source one uses to pray, IMO.

"could be totally wrong but what i think ASHMAMA was trying to argue here is that when confronted with defiance, the attitude in the OP, pray on it, find passage from teh bible - if you're a spiritual person - that supports where our parental strength and authority should come from."

It depends on what type of spiritual person one is. If one is Muslim, she could use the Koran, if one is Jewish she could use the Torah, if one is Buddhist, one could use....... Which source to use is dependent upon one's religion.

OT but at church last sunday, my DD nudged me and asked if jewish ppl were christian like us, i said no, they don't believe in the christ like we do, they're a religion that prays differently.

Christianity is not the only religion that requires obedience to G-d. I haven't noticed a difference in behaviors between children of different religions.

What does being a devout Christian have to do with behavior? Does that mean the children of different faiths are not as well behaved?

Unfortunately, nothing says "devote Christian" more than judging the beliefs of other Christians.

I disagree with you, on a debate board, and I didn't understand your original point then, and I still don't. No worries, I'll move on.

Edited to add, I don't understand the NRA position on the 2nd amendment in much the same way I didn't understand your response to OP. I apologize if I seemed disrespectful of your beliefs, that was not my intent, but I had a little free time and your response did not make sense to me, though I apparently Puss got it. I still don't. Consider me dense, but really, it's nothing "willful" or personal. It's my own very hard-earned Christian beliefs, and a life-long struggle in my journey, maybe you have a clearer path. Really, I'm not being snarky.

IME, the type of willful misunderstanding you're engaging in isn't typical of most Christian believers, who look for common ground and unity. We clearly have a different opinion on what the term Christian means, which is why I suggested that it would be better to go to the RD board. There you will many who agree with you,
