My students complain about being forced to go to Church. They see themselves as Christian merely by the accident of birth: "I'm only a Christian because I was born to Christian parents. If I had been born elsewhere, I would believe something else."

For them, those who preach and teach the gospel are "forcing religion down our throats." Keeping the Sunday obligation appears to be a form of bullying.

I never shared any of these complaints. They are hard for me to understand. I think they are evidence that our children have been evangelized by the world. They seem to have adopted the belief that the first commandment is, "Make up your own mind."
