Janesville Gazette (Newspaper) - October 23, 2002, Janesville, WisconsinParents must Lay foundation of Faith with their kids by Tom Schaefer Knight a Tower to Bune if you re a Parent who still believes in the time worn phrase a a in a rather let my child choose his religion when he grows up a then listen up it s time to put that theory of childbearing in the trash can with such health advice As a an Apple a Day keeps the doctor the idea of parental neutrality arguably hostility toward religion is not Only bogus its downright dangerous to a child a Well being. If you done to believe me then consider the recent findings of child trends an Independent nonpartisan research Center that seeks to improve the lives of children and their families through its research. It found that teens were less Likely to be drug and alcohol abusers and More Likely to delay sexual activity if they were involved in religion. Moreover teens in religious organizations were More Likely to take part in service oriented activities and had fewer commentary delinquency problems a although researchers have found a general trend for children to become less religious in adolescence National Survey data collected Over the past three decades consistently show that More than 60 percent of All american High school seniors agree that religion is pretty or very important to them a the study reports while the study notes other factors that shape a teens behave or including parents Peers and nonreligious communities or groups those teens who Are part of religious communities Are Likely to have the greatest opportunities for positive outcomes. Most parents wont be surprised by these findings. They be taught their children prayers and prayed for them. They be taken them to Church synagogue or mosque where Faith in god was nurtured. They be passed on their morals and values to help guide their children. Of course religion makes a difference. So Why do we still hear that religious neutrality comment from parents and parents to be Arentt these the same people who Are Quick to say they dream of letting their children decide on their own what to eat or what to watch on television or what to do unsupervised but when it comes to religion a Well i done to want to prejudice my child against other the presumption is always that religion is More harmful than beneficial. How sad. To be Clear no one contends that having Faith guarantees problem free adolescents. Each of us can think of teen agers whose parents regularly took them to a House of worship and encouraged them to follow the narrow path of Faith. Yet they took off a into a far country where some rejected Faith altogether and others found a different purpose for living. Regardless of How children turn out parents who understand the importance of Faith cannot shirk their responsibility of laying a spiritual foundation for their children. God willing it will be solid enough to help them avoid the dangers ahead. Thankfully those who Don t have a spiritual grounding or who wander away from it can still find their Way Home to god. One thing is certain time is Short for parents with children still willing to listen to a parents guidance. If you Haven to Laid the foundation and believe its crucial for your child Here Are some ways to begin a Pray with your child at meals and at bedtime. Read the stories of your Faith or look for books that provide spiritual and moral guidance. A plan a regular time to eat together As a family to nourish spirits As Well As bodies. The biggest mistake we make As parents is to think that we re in control of our children s decisions and their ultimate destiny. That a foolish and dangerous. The greatest gift we can give our children is a spiritual foundation on which they can build a god pleasing life Long after we re gone. Such a gift is of inestimable value and the Only legacy Worth passing on. 2c the Janesville Gazette.

Aith amp ethics inscription could be earliest evidence of link to Jesus Michael Kilian Knight Ridder to Bune Washington a dramatic find that experts say could be the earliest archaeological evidence of the existence of Jesus Christ was announced monday by the prestigious biblical archaeology review and the discovery Channel television network. The find is a 20-Inch-Long Limestone ossuary or Container for Bones which some assert May have been used for the burial of the skeletal remains of Jesus older brother jh0es�?�?ojacob�?� in hebrew and greek three decades after the crucifixion in the first Century. A amazing As it May sound a Limestone Bone Box called an ossuary has surfaced in Israel that May once have contained the Bone Tor James the brother of be v sus a Andre Lemaire a professor at Sor Bonne University in Paris and a noted expert on hebrew and aramaic Antiquity writes in next months Issue of the review. A we know this because an extraordinary inscription incised on one Side of the ossuary reads in Clear aramaic letters a James son of Joseph brother of Jesus a a Lemaire said. Other authorities on biblical archaeology were sceptical however saying the inscription could be inconclusive and possibly a forgery. Because the Box was apparently looted from a site in Israel its origin is unclear fueling the sep tics doubts. Lemaire calculated that Only about 20 of Jerusalem a men out of a population of some 40,000 males at the time of ther authorities on biblical archaeology were sceptical however saying the inscription could be inconclusive and possibly a forgery. Christ would have had a father named Joseph and a brother named Jesus. He conceded it was Odd to find the names of the father and the brother of the deceased in an ossuary carving but emphasized that James and Jesus were very Well known at the time. A when we take into account that this a James son of Joseph brother of Jesus had a brother who was by this time Well known and that the a James son of Joseph brother of Jesus had a special relationship with this brother As the Leader of the Jerusalem Church it seems very probable that this is the ossuary of James in the new testament a Lemaire said. A if so this would also mean that we have Here the first Epigraphic mention from about 63 . . A of Jesus of discovery and the review made photographs of the Box available at a news conference announcing the find but the object itself remained in the hands of the private collector in Israel who had acquired it.
