The process of Scripture and the repetition of peculiar sacred accounts are topics, today.  Also, there is more on family and beliefs of children.  A “Yahoo! Answers” fighter using the ID “Brittany” Level 1 with 89 points, a member since December 24,  2012) posted the following:

 

Daniel vs Joseph (Religion)?

I was watching shows with my younger cousin and I realized between VeggieTales and Joseph: King of Dreams, that the two stories are almost identical. Guy understands dreams, king is happy, things get ****** up, happy ending. Are these two seperate religions? Or both Christianity? What’s the point of the same story being retold twice?

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Family and Beliefs of Children? (08/28/2014)—(5.)  Parents are not brainwashing or coercing their children because they introduce the ABC’s, reading, and spelling.  Neither are parents enslaving their child by sharing the Bible, church attendance, and unselfish service.  All children taught the alphabet do not go on to learn reading and writing.  Many choose to become defiant, rebellious, and do not learn in classroom settings and schools.  It remains that caretakers and parents can not teach faith.  Faith is an aspect of divine makeup along with other inseparable spirit content that must be provided by operations from GOD.  Included are forgiveness, holiness, joy, longsuffering, love, truthfulness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  Parents may create, identify, and set up opportunities for their children; provide examples and models; clarify sacred knowledge; or acknowledge, encourage and praise efforts of their children to learn and conform to sacred standards.  The home must prepare children for growth and participation within the church; and experience within the two social settings must complete and reinforce the sacred content and process of one another.  See again Genesis 18:  19, Ezra 9:  1-3, Malachi 2:  11-17, Malachi 3:  14-18 and Malachi 4:  5-6, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:  because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  They are of the world:  therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.  We are of God:  he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us.  Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.  Beloved, let us love one another:  for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  (1st John 4:  4-8, KJV)

“Brittany”, here are a few points on Christian belief that you might find helpful:

(1.)  The ancient writings collected together as the Bible are a record of cosmic and human events that display the active presence of GOD through thousands of lives, over thousands of years (we say, a divine perspective).

(2.)  GOD is a spirit who has put forth all existence.  The language throughout the Scriptures comes from finite carnal, material and social relationships among created beings and living creatures, yet, is intended to describe and reveal divinity that is totally spirit in makeup and substance.  We say GOD is immutable and unchanging, given that he repeatedly uses specific devices and divine operations (e.g., covenant, law, dreams, healing, prophecy, suffering, raising the dead) to make known and reveal divinity to the living.

(3.)  Depictions and portrayals of the Bible shown in animations, TV programs, and movies (e.g., Noah, The Passion, The Ten Commandments) often are adaptations where the text has been altered responding to varying limitations.  The sacred quality of the Scriptures may be totally ignored in the effort to produce something dramatic, simple, sensational, and sexually engaging.  Profane and non-spiritual elements will appear when, in their efforts to be professional, directors and producers make no requirement of belief and commitment for those who are asked to carry out their projects.  Oversimplification and other spiritual errors will be common because of aesthetic, artistic, and budgeting concerns as well as on the basis of the godliness, insight, understanding, and quality of skill and talent among actors, illustrators, and technical staff.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example (4.)  Through baptism (death of ones inborn spirit, rebirth having divine DNA, so to speak), believers are equipped to correctly understand and value the aspects of divinity that have been revealed.  Just like a blind man may be willing, and want to see, yet, is not equipped, so believers can not “see” without an experience of rebirth.  Born again, believers gradually “grow up” again by acquiring sacred knowledge, continuing sacred practices, overcoming life challenges, and participating in fellowship with other believers.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
