If the goal of the believer is anything other than to walk in that which is the wisdom and understanding of God, then we are missing the goal

I just read this lovely verse from the Aramaic bible

Her ways are the ways of sweetness and all her paths are peace
Proverbs 3:17. The whole chapter talks of the greatness and value of this being our way. We know that Jesus is the peace and wisdom of God and if sweetness and peace are the way of Jesus Christ who is the revelation of God's wisdom, how can anyone possibly entertain God to be any other way than that of sweetness and peace?.

It’s causing division in the world as per the 40 thousand plus denominations that exist, all claiming to have the truth...

Why would one want to have children who are mislead into opposing Gods will? Yet it occurs everyday. Jesus said--The members of ones own household would be their enemies( spiritually-not physically)-- God is put-FIRST- in a true followers life--over all other things.

A child only knows what their parents teach them of god beliefs, right?

12th century(i think) ruins of Croxden Abbey, just outside my home town of Uttoxeter(an old Roman town). Any town which is ending in ER in the UK for you history buffs is usually a Roman town..
