Thanks to good neighbors who directed me here....I live in Northwest Arkansas, certainly God's county, and have lived one half of my 58 years on the other side of the fence. I would not give that up for anything. It gives me a perspective that those who have grown up in a Christian family don't have. I am tired of going to church. I have gone to almost every protestant church in my town and found them all to be 80/20 churches, simplistic in teaching and inadequate in the worship experience. Our youth are dying and going to hell. I love science and math and see how they relate to scripture. Kids want answers! That said, I wish to expand Bible teaching to include the OT, and the Genesis record. Do I pretend to know everything concerning the Genesis record? Heck no. And, I know top down teaching does not work. That is, "I am the teacher and you need to shut up and listen to me." No, I would rather engage youth into thinking critically, using serious study to discover who God is. There. 3-2-1, ignition,,,,BLAST OFF!

Hey Rock Pile Farm.....We need many different perspectives in the body to stand up for Jesus. Welcome, and looking forward to your contribution...Tom
So are they not teaching much of the OT in the church you are at? How large is your town? Glad that you have a heart for the youth...
