I have thought on this topic for most of my life. How to teach the up and coming generations the love of GOD and how to have a blessed life is a topic that I write on often and consider one of my sacred duties. There is a phrase that buzzes around academic circles that is supposed to make excuses for a wanton and depraved way of life and that phrase is "secular humanism". It is a propaganda word for atheism that is taught in the U.S. in the schools at all levels. The reason I am writing this entry today is to make it clear exactly what secular humanism is. I tell you upfront that I write everything that I write as a Christian woman first and foremost and then as a Reg Nurse with the perpective of that career training.
I am writing Christian principles on the top of page to put GOD first! It is a visual reminder that GOD said to choose righteousness throughout the book of Deuteronomy and the entire Bible.
