Hello I would like to know, how do you respond when you are caught up between the values of Religion
and also between your family in times of crises
Most people are at this stage or place in their life occasionally.
Treat it like this....God is in control and he will always work things for the good of all, and always remind yourself that you have handed the circumstance to God and he is dealing with it.
Psa 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Be honest how you feel,and do not patronize any of the religion or you will heat up the situation.In this situation,you have to think carefully what to say in order not to be biase.Although,not necessarilly you will supress what you feel,just say it in a very diplomatic way.
When caught in a crises between God and family, I follow my God. My religion is a big part of my life and I expect people who know me (family included) to know that this is who I am.
I respect others' rights to be who they want to be; and, I expect others to allow me the same courtesy. Fortunately, my family respects this and we have no major disagreements.
If people are approaching spirituality sincerely, I don't really see any major differences between core values within them up to and including secular humanitarianism, or even what is useful psychologically and/or sociologically.
Phaedrus asked "what is good?" in the Platonic dialogues recorded by Socrates.

Aristotle also expounded on the subject of 'the happy man' in "Nicomachean Ethics".

In every model 'good' leads to 'happy'. This Hub brushes the subject tangently:

On a more personal note, there is little that just being kind can't help somewhat. Hope that helps.

Is there going to be a Rapture?No, there's not. The "Rapture" refers to a passage in First Thessalonians, chapter 4, which talks about Christians being "caught up" in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Many Christians believe, and the "Left Behind" books promote,...

How can you respond when a person yells at those around him when something upsets him?Stress turns into anger for some people. Why can't they find better outlets?

Why are we so caught up with doing everything that is bad for us?Imperfection is a major problem but why do we spend so much time on demonic activities such as pornography, drug and alcohol addiction, idolatry and anything that we clearly know is against what Almighty God requires of us in his word...
