    Are Your Children or Grandchildren, Kids/Goats?
    I must confess that I myself have been guilty of this error in my life.  I thank our Lord that you shared this with me and that I too, by His mercy, will be able to make this correction. 
    Our Lord is doing a mighty work in these last days*. I marvel that He tells us in Matthew 24:21 that there is a great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world.  But at the same time He also tells us in Matthew 24:37-38 that the world will not perceive of this great overturning (Ezekiel 21:27, I Corinthians 1:27-31). I pray that He will give us wisdom to keep us humble in these last days*. We must glory in Him and know that it is all of His work and we are but unprofitable servants doing that which is our duty (Luke 17:10).

    Thanks for sharing that. I hear that word “kid” used so much, I find myself sometimes saying it. But I remembered Brother Tom making an issue of that on one of the trips and I try to catch myself when I say “kid”. Now, I really understand why we shouldn’t use that for children.

    Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. (1 John 2:18)

    Thank you for this information. We really should try to speak like we love GOD and all HIS Creation, especially HIS Children.

    Proverbs 8:6-9 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

    Praise GOD for HIS WORD!!!

    We really should try to speak like we love GOD and all HIS Creation, especially HIS Children.

    In Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Concordances: His Children <01121>

    On your website on Internet we see the words Kid/Kids , if we looked at the language of the Bible we see Goats. 

    In Strong’s Concordance the Old Testament Hebrew word Kid is Strong’s number <08163> ryes sa’iyr of res sa’ir,  bn, zn from <08175> TWOT-2274c, 2274e KJV - Kid 28, Goat 24, Devil 2, Satyr 2, Hairy 2, Rough 1.

    In the New Testament Greek we see Kid used once.  In Luke 15:29 it is also defined in Strong’s Concordance number <2056> as Goat.

    We read in Matthew 25:31-32: When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep [His Children] from the goats <2056>: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues [the language of Gods word, the Bible].

    Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues*, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    * not the language of the world.

    Let God be Magnified!

    In Christian love,

    Scary, very scary form of child indoctrination! Yes I agree with Rosie O’ Donnell, Evangelicalism is not unlike what the taliban are doing in Afghanistan!

    By their own admission ... it’s the American Taliban.

    “Taliban” translates to “religious student”
