i am president of the Christian club at my school and we have had guest speakers come and give sermons every week so far this year.
got any ideas for a fun activity that can be done with a group of high school students to get them thinking about God
this has to be something we can do in our lunch period, just something quick and fun.
were not trying to convert non believers. our purpose is to give those Christians at the school, and anyone who is not, but is just curious, a place they can go to discuss and learn about God

This is a statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School, Kingston, Tennessee by school Principal Jody McLoud, on September 1, 2000. I thought it was worth sharing with the world, and hope you will forward it to all your friends. It clearly shows just how far this country has gone in the wrong direction.

——————————————————————————–

It has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games to say a prayer and play the National Anthem to honor God and Country.
Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law.

As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it an alternate lifestyle, and if someone is offended, that’s OK.

I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity by dispensing condoms and calling it safe sex. If someone is offended, that’s OK.

I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a viable means of birth control. If someone is offended, it’s no problem.

I can designate a school day as earth day and involve students in activities to religiously worship and praise the goddess, mother earth, and call it ecology.

I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depict people with strong, traditional, Christian convictions as simple minded and ignorant and call it enlightenment.

However, if anyone uses this facility to honor God and ask Him to bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, Federal Case Law is violated.

This appears to be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical.

Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone except God and His Commandments.

Nevertheless, as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to abide by rules that they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocritical. I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.

For this reason, I shall render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and refrain from praying at this time. However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank God, and ask Him in the name of Jesus to bless this event, please feel free to do so. As far as I know, that’s not against the law — yet.

——————————————————————————–

AND . . . one by one, the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another, and began to pray. They prayed in the stands. They prayed in the team huddles. They pray at the concession stand. And they prayed in the announcer’s box. The only place they didn’t pray was in the Supreme Court of the United State’s of America – the seat of “justice” in the one nation under God.
Somehow, Kingston, Tennessee, remembered what so many have forgotten . . . we are given the Freedom OF Religion, not the Freedom FROM Religion.

Praise God that His remnant remains!

Should I get a High School Diploma or a GED?

Okay, so this is my very mixed-up problem…

Due to some unfortunate events, I dropped out of school after completing eighth grade. It was very devastating for me since I had plans of going to college and have always been an A/B Honor Roll student.

Last year, I was lucky to be able to save up some money and I started 9th grade through homeschooling (from Christian Liberty Academy).

I did this because after searching around, most of the high school diploma programs that seemed to be legit required at least some high school, which I didn’t have. So now I have one year of high school.

I can’t afford to continue grades 10-12, since it costs a little over $500 per year and I have financial trouble as it is. Still, I’m trying to get my schooling back on track since I’m 20 and I want to go to college.

My plans are to go to college for a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts for animation.

Should I just get my GED? Will that be accepted by good colleges?

Or should I go with my original plan of doing one of those high school diploma programs (doesn’t have to be online)? If so, do you know any accredited ones that will be accepted by colleges?

If its about high school diploma programs, I’d like for someone experienced to have an answer for me. Someone who has gotten one and it was legit, since most of them are scams.

Thank you for any honest help you can give me. I’m in a pretty bad rut and my mind has been running circles on me.

I greatly appreciate it.

Hello,
I am 20 years old and in college, starting junior year shortly. I have flashbacks about my actions and behavior in high school. I was accused of sexual harassment, and attempted domestic abuse/rape, many times by many girls in high school. The dean and the principal called me into the office over my four years in high school and asked if these were true. I denied the charges and my parents told them to back off. The claims weren’t true; I never hurt any girl physically, never said insulting things. I did hug a girl without her permission. She knew me. I was outside during a fire alarm. It was raining, she was cold, I said “What the hell” and hugged her. She was stunned. Two months after the event happened, I was called in to the office by the principal, dean, and two guidance counselors. They accused me of hugging her inappropriately, to which I said “I did not hug her.” Lie. The charges were dropped. My junior year, I was accused of advancing on a girl, trying sexually harras/fondle her. I NEVER touched her; but the principals, deans and her parents were in the office to talk to me. They assumed I should be punished. The dean said he was going to punish me, but the charges were not true. He was going to expell me. My parents scolded the deans, told them to leave me alone because it was not true. The charges dropped. She knew who I was, we went to the same middle school. Her brother doesn’t talk to me anymore because he thinks I was trying to rape his sister. THIS IS NOT TRUE.
However, I punched a girl in the arm my junior year. She was trying to punch and kick me, I did this in self-defense. I did tell her “You talk too much”. I did bad things. The list goes ON AND ON. I think I committed more problems in high school than any other student. I called a teacher an a**h*** and also made fun of my freshman science teacher. I did not take responsibility in my school band, I refused to do work in my math and history class, I had to drop those classes and enlist somewhere else. I was failing them. I also lied about going places and also yelled at my guidance counselor. A social worker nearly had to call security when I blew up and yelled at a male student (Christian Bale style, but worse) in our college resource center; he made fun of a female student. I feel ashamed. I did fail my driver education class. I was arrogant behind the wheel, I never listened to anything the driving teacher said. I was nearly involved in a huge crash on the highway one time. Its interesting because I still have my learing permit, but I feel ashamed of looking at it because it is a haunting reminder of driver ed. I failed all the tests, never did any of the work, and shouted random things in class. In the fall, I asked the driving coach if he could change the grade. Its a long story. My parents told me that as a result of my driver education behavior, I am not allowed to drive anymore. I have not driven a car in four years. I live in the suburbs. I take the bus and train to get places, or ask people for rides.
These events flashback in my head. The ‘backs started about senior year. I can view incidents or events in high school and look at it from multiple angles i.e. classes, lunch room confrontations, football games, the events, etc. I wish I could go back in time and prevent any of this from happening.
Recently, I had an epiphany. I am thinking of going back to my high school, (the faculty are still there) and confessing and apologizing to them for what I did in high school. Its been hard in college. I don’t have a girlfriend and I cannot drive since I don’t have a license. I have not made any new friends in college and I am afraid to talk with girls because I am scared they will SEND ME TO THE DEAN OFFICE. I can’t stop thinking about high school and if I did certain things differently how different things would have been.
I wish I could move on, but these flashbacks have been with me and continue to haunt me.
Does anyone, seriously, have a suggestion at what I should do? Should I go back and apologize and serve punishment for my actions? Should I apologize to the girl I hugged? How can I get over my phobias and move on with my life?
Thank you
