Psalms 25:4 – “Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.” NASU
The age old effort of the devil and his earthly henchmen to dilute the message of the Cross and infiltrate the Church continues and I believe it is important to refocus on some of the tactics so we not miss what is happening.
In the area of education there has been a slow process that has changed or attempted to change the curriculum. We have observed things like ‘values clarification’ courses which are nothing more than a means whereby they can indoctrinate our children moving them to rejecting the ‘moral absolutes’ of the Bible.
During the administration of Jimmy Carter an Educrat during a discussion on funding for government controlled preschool day-care centers said: “One of the reasons we need to establish preschool day-care centers for children from three years up is because in spite of the billions of dollars at our disposal and the thirteen years we have the children in our public schools, we are still not able to UNDO THE HARM done to them before they arrive in kindergarten.” WHAT? The harm he spoke of was, in part, belief in God, an absolute value system, and respect for the authority of parenthood.
The devil has dispatched ‘change agents’ into most government and many church organizations and in the Department of Education we have seen:
- ED 056-345 – – Humanism: The counselor’s role as a change agent.
- ED 058-664 – – Change Agent Teams Changing Schools: Case Studies.
- ED 054-513 – – Emotional Arousal & Attitude Change During Simulation Games.
Then a document entitled: “Report to the President’s Commission on School Finance” where the concern expressed was that the majority of youth hold the same values as their parents and that pattern MUST BE ALTERED was the conclusion
Going back years again because I want you to understand this is not a new phenomenon but a tireless one. The HUMANIST – [Jan/Fegb 1983] – p. 26, Religion for a New Age – “…The battle for humankinds’ future must be waged and won in the Public School Classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a NEW FAITH; a RELIGION OF HUMANITY that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of a sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey HUMANIST VALUES in ‘whatever’ subject they teach, ‘regardless’ of the educational level! The classroom MUST and WILL become an arena of conflict between the old and the new (the rotting corpse of Christianity), and the new faith of humanism, resplendent in its promise of a new world in which the never realized Christian ideal of ‘love thy neighbor’ will be finally achieved.”
Years ago a court in California ruled that a child could sue its parents and the hospital for having been born! Also decades ago, the Delaware Attorney General ruled that a doctor who refused to kill two unborn babies with lethal saline injections could be sued for ‘criminal malpractice.’ Our world has not gotten better since then but worse and the perversion of God’s moral laws has escalated not diminished. If we are going to have God’s blessings upon our world and families we need to return to some of the Old Paths and honor God and His Word. We need to give our children a heritage that is worthy and worthwhile – A Good Name. We must realize that the proper teaching and training is our responsibility – Train up a Child in the way he/she should go. We must become men/women of prayer and intercession – Pray without ceasing. We must point them to Christ – By example, teaching and testimony. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
May God be with you as you go through your day!
