I am going to be the first to comment on my own post, because there were some thoughts I couldn't really fit in it. This is meant to show Christ as the perfect example of the Scout Law, with the occassional admonition for us. However, some of the things on the list, I learned through Christ's example are not absolutes, not exactly. For example: Couteous. Christ didn't hesitate to reprove when it was necessary, although it was always out of love. There were many times he couldn't be called "Cheerful." We know that "men are that they might have joy" but there also "must needs be opposition in all things," and sorrow is an important part of life.

I hope others will add their thoughts, comments and scriptures.

Hi there - thanks for the post. I was looking for a way to tie the scout law into FHE and this is it. Yes, I believe that Jesus is the foundation of these principles.
