Do you tell children that murder and rape are ok? Aside from it being all right for mommy to be kissing Santa Claus, do you tell your children lies about sex?Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureÖEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

In the end, though, if we go down that path then we still have not told the truth."Social networking" is an oxymoron.

What I am proposing is that we not make excuses for things we do that are dishonest by calling them "white lies" and "make believe". A lie is a lie is a lie....and all lies are wrong. If we can identify lies that don't need to be told, whould it not make for a better world if we eliminate as many lies as we can?
Every time the truth is found out about a lie that has been told, someones feelings get hurt. In the case of Christmas and Easter, we have the power to avoid hurt feelings all together by never telling the lies.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureÖEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

Why does everyone have to be so conformist? Live and let live I say. It certainly does not bother me to see a nativity scene or any religous symbol, and why should it? Just because I may not believe doesn't mean that it bothers me that others do. Let's have all of the holidays and let's celebrate them as we see fit to do.
Maybe Jesus speaks to some through thier trees. Hey... you don't know."Social networking" is an oxymoron.

What ever distracts us from our relationship with God is a bad thing. For the one rich man in the Bible, his wealth was his distraction. Jesus told that particular man that he needed to give up his wealth in order to get to heaven. That was just that one mans distraction. There are many other wealthy men in the Bible who were not advised to give up their wealth because their wealth was not a distraction for them from God.
Everything about the Christmas and Easter holidays is designed to be a distraction. That puts a lot of distraction between a lot of people and God. That is not a good thing.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureÖEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

You say, "no your fat arse makes you look fat"?
What good does it do to offend?
I consider sparing people's feelings to be "the high road". Sometimes you can't do it though, because sometimes being a real friend is telling that person a truth that no one else has the guts to say. But not always."Social networking" is an oxymoron.

I am no better then anyone else, I just admit I'm a liar and attempt to limit my lies as much as I feel I have control to do.
In the example you have given I would reply more along the lines with; "Honey, you know you are a bit overweight and the jeans being tight do sort of draw attention to that. You look really good in those black pants you wore last week though. If you don't have to wear jeans, how about wearing the black pants?"Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureÖEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
