When I was younger my parents would make me read my bible, they would literally force me. Eventually I grew bitter and started to hate reading in general. Forcing kids to do something is only going to work long enough for them to grow up to think for themselves. The world is so crazy in these times. It seems like everything in Revelations is coming true. We need Jesus now more than ever. The opening scene of the documentary was very misleading: just think… if you were an “outsider” looking in… and had no idea what Christianity or who this, Jesus person, they keep talking about was. You would think this woman is crazy, and she is manipulating these kids. Well that’s exactly how they feel. Fischer is emphasizing that they must fight for Jesus but also accusing the Muslim race for teaching their kids violence by making them blow up things. Violence is not of God, whether it’s in the name of Jesus or not, yet she is saying fighting fire with fire is good as long as it’s for the right reason. Opening Tone is already very contradictory. Hypocrisy is a leading factor in why people look at Christianity as a joke sometimes. Fischer doesn’t directly say it but she implies, “Enemies are using their kids, so we should too.” Christians are supposed to be kind hearted open minded people. Vengeance is mine, said the Lord. A follower of Jesus you would think she would know not to fight Fire with a “Jesus stick” on fire. Making the inference laying you life down for Jesus, it sounds like she’s asking them to commit suicide (coming from the ignorant person again), but she is trying to stress the importance of being fully emerged with God and his word, she’s just not doing a very good job. The parents play a big role in this factor. They too are ignorant in differentiating forcing their kids to know God, and guiding. This documentary was recorded got prejudged… which is going against what the authors are even saying. It is very hard trying to live by your own words. We judge others everyday but if we took the time to judge ourselves we would be shocked at what others see in us. Fischer is very bold; she will get Jesus across the table regardless of how you feel about her. If you’re not interested in the topic then you’re not going to pay attention. Children have narrow minds and will do just about anything you tell them. Christianity is slowly and sadly straying away from God. It’s becoming more and more about looks. One thing Fischer stresses that is true that you must have a relationship with God or you will go to hell. Very few ministers around the world are trying to lead the next generation in the right direction. Although her approach is a little forceful, Becky Fischer is at least trying to do what is right; with everything she does at the camp she gets the point across. At the beginning she introduces herself and her purpose as a children pastor. Fischer tries to interact with the kids, but she tries to force them her way instead of getting to know the kids learning habits. She is a teacher… yes, but a teacher has to learn the way the students learn the best, then she can guide them the way she wants and eventually they teach themselves. A teacher is supposed to guide not push. The difference is showing them the way to go, instead of shoving it down their throat. She has the right idea but her ways are not broken down enough for kids. They kids are praising God and speaking in tongues but they have no clue what they are doing. Reaching out to our community and trying to save the sinners should be on our mind. Some people are so holy and righteous the separate themselves from the world and “sinful people”, and some come to the lord only to leave from him again. There’s always going be some evangelistic people that will evangelize at all cost. Some take it a bit too far, and violently shoves Jesus in peoples face. In this case Becky Fischer is running a Jesus Camp to get kids closer to God, but her approach is not the best way to handle things. Children are “useable” as she says, but you can unfortunately force them to believe what you want them to because they can’t think for themselves. She could have taught them about Jesus and guided them the right way, make them want to have a relationship with God, and not be bitter.
