  • 9. RELIGIOUS:
    • Does it matter what religion you are??
      • Does it mean “What would ______ do?”
        • Gandhi
        • Buddha
        • Allah
      • How can we even try to be like God?
  • 10. STUPID:
    • Money maker (selling products)
    • Cliché
    • Impossible
  • 11. CRUTCH:
    • The bracelet is a stimulus to live like Jesus?
      • Shouldn’t we know how to live without a stimulus…
    • A ‘branding’ - Conformity
    • Group membership – exclusivity…
  • 12. WISE:
    • Good for kids to have reminders of their beliefs
    • Good for others to know what we believe
    • Good to help remind us to think before we do…
  • 13. OVER-RATED:
    • Parents are just making their kids wear the bracelets
    • Kids will be kids
    • Jesus reminders will not help angry, mean kids
    • Nobody is perfect – NO ONE can “BE” like JESUS!
  • 14. COP-OUT:
    • Should live our religion – not because of a phrase?
    • If we forget the bracelet at home, do we get to be bad?
    • Is it a Christian way to discriminate/separation?
    • We should ALL stop and think before we act
    • – not just because of our religion .
