Why can’t we be like innocent children who play and not care if other children are black, white, or Asian….?
The Chicago Tribune Voice of the People today published the above question?
The Purpose of This Post
Is to convey both an answer for the writer and one recommendation what we all can do to return to what our Creator created us humans to be, upright and innocent.
This only have I found: God created mankind upright, but they have gone in search of many schemes. (Ecclesiastes 7:29)
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it. (Proverb 22:6)
And they were both made “upright”; which is to be understood, not of the erectness of their bodies, but of the disposition of their minds; they were
and they lost the presence of God, and communion with him: and so their posterity are not only inventors of evil things, of sins, but of new ways of happiness; some placing it in riches; others in honors; others in pleasures; and some in natural wisdom and knowledge; and some in their own works of righteousness; the vanity of all which Solomon has before exposed.
What’s My Point?
A child is born innocent and trusts to obey his parent’s values to teach and care for him to walk upright both physically and spiritually.
Over time they grow and go to schools to be taught and influenced by teachers and peers’ different values that may or may not be the same values as their parents. He or she loses their innocence when they become influenced by others where to place their trust.
Then they make individual choices, some wise, some foolish that lead them on their path in life to death, both physical and spiritual.
My Point is in the USA, religious values are not taught in public schools and when they make choices that are foolish, the public values they were taught are not capable either physical, economically, or spiritually able to restore their innocence.
In My Opinion
The only influence who can restore their innocence is their Creator.
If a child has never been taught to trust in God, or obtain religious values, he or she must rely on friends, family or public assistance for physical needs, but not spiritual needs to restore their innocence they were born with.
The answer to the writer is this in my opinion. Teach religious values to your children to trust in God when they are young and innocent from birth to adulthood.
Petition your legislators to allow parents school vouchers because the majority of parents cannot afford to pay for private religious schools.

Did King Solomon observe correctly 3000 years ago the same answers and advice>\
When and how did we lose our innocence?
If so, when will we wise up and learn what values in life and death we should have trusted when we were young and innocent?
