Beware of the Pack Mentality

#faith

Last week I decided to open a twitter account because, well, that’s the thing to do. With the whole Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate still fresh in my mind, I tweeted a question my daughter once posed about evolution. I thought it was innocent enough…wrong!
Saturday and Sunday I was attacked all.day.long by athiests and evolutionists. And not just personal attacks against me, but against homeschooling, the bible, God, and my children! The slants against my children were particularly vicious-

-”Her children probably don’t even know how to spell IQ.”

There goes that idea.

-”Your children are going to be scientifically illiterate.”

Hmmm…

-”Did a goat just back over one of them?”
I’m assuming this is referring to the ”all homeschoolers live on farms” stereotype. Funny thing is, I live in the city!

-”You are raising your kids on hell and fear.”

They look terrified, don’t they? Actually, Dillon did get sick a few minutes after this was taken.

-”You’re sheltering your children from the real world.”
Boy, that’s original. Actually, it’s hard to shelter them considering we live in the city and are the only Christians in the entire family.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to wrap my brain around why they care so much about a person with nine twitter followers. I must have had to block about fifteen people, and I’ve never blocked anyone before! (referring to when I still had a Facebook account)
I felt like I was in one of my kids’ games! You know the ones- where every time you beat a bad guy, five more show up? They were acting like a pack of wild, injured animals. Wait…that’s when I realized something- they’re acting this way because instinctively they know their time is almost up. Instinctively, they know that they’re wrong, and someday they will have to face the Almighty God, and they’re terrified. Like I said, a pack of injured animals.
Someday, we will all meet Him, and I’ll be honored to say that I was persecuted in His holy and precious name. What about you?
