Rescue the Children from Government Indoctrination

I appreciate the link to the video below, which KC sent me. The link was the stimulus for this article. Thanks, KC.

There is a movement that is beginning to pick up speed. It stems from a need to save our Christian and conservative children from the increasingly corrupting influence of our public schools. The schools are essentially shaping the children into a worldview that is antithetical to Christian, family and American values, virtues, and principles.

For the last 80 years our taxpayer supported public schools have not only failed to instruct and to turn out world-class educated graduates, but they have succeeded in propagandizing our children into the Marxist and secular humanistic faith. The school environment created and now existing almost universally has become conducive to violence such as that demonstrated at Columbine in Colorado and recently repeated in many other locations across this nation. . .

EDUCATION ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL

The instruction in our schools is based, for the most part, on moral relativism, with no absolute right or wrong. Evolution is taught as fact and not merely as one pitiful, impertinent attempt at explaining the origins of life.

We must acknowledge that there are pockets of good in school districts throughout this land, there are excellent, caring, dedicated teachers. But the overarching bureaucracy and core leadership at the federal, state level and even in many local school boards, which govern, control and guide America’s educational system is essential corrupt, perverse and Marxist. The bureaucracy and the National Education Union (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (
AFT) are not focused on the students’ best interest, but on promulgating a specific secularist, Marxist agenda which is antithetical to all that is truly American.

Our present system has contributed to the dumbing-down of America and not to the building up, or the meaningful education of America’s children. The system by its actions does not care for what is good for America or her children. The system unfortunately is bent on the destruction of the morality, historical Christian values, virtues and principles upon which this nation was founded. It is even revises American and world history to meet its specific despicable educational goals.

To continue to keep our children in the public schools will assure that they will become puppets and pawns of the state.

EDUCATION ON THE LOCAL LEVEL

Last night I attended a prayer initiative, where a group of Christians spent an hour going through and praying for our local schools requesting God’s intervention in combating the moral degradation that exists within these buildings. The schools’ physically are state of the art, brand new. Outwardly they are bright, cheerful, and clean. But spiritually they are a breeding ground for drugs, promiscuity, disunity, and all matters of evil. Even in a small town school district with a single high school, a middle school, an intermediate school and a primary school located on one spacious campus there is a lack of unity and appreciation for the excellent facilities, with which the community has been blessed. Kids come to school hurting, hungry, hopeless and hassled. Teachers do their best. But because God has been expelled, because a different creed has been inserted, and because the overall system countermands true education there exists a horrific vacuum.

Are we asking God to return to these places of ‘learning,’ these godless, atheistic centers of mis-education, where He is most definitely not wanted? Are our public schools, even the newest, most modern, most well financed, most community supported beyond reformation or saving? Have we gone beyond the point of no return in our public schools? Have the atheistic secular humanists Marxist so captured them that they are now out of our hands, out of reach?

ARE CHRISTIAN OR PRIVATE SCHOOLS THE ANSWER?

In a stunning article that Bill Wilson wrote on his Daily Jot website yesterday, titled, “Liars, Thieves, Cheats--An Upcoming Generation of Christians,” he reported, “The Josephson Institute, a California-based organization promoting character and ethics, did just that and the results were alarming. The good news is that not all American teens lie, cheat and steal, just the vast and overwhelming majority of them. The bad news is that teens attending private and religious schools are among the worst of them. The Institute’s biannual survey of nearly 30,000 high schools indicated that 83 percent of students confessed to lying to a parent about something significant, but religious and private school students were some two percent more likely to lie to parents than those attending public schools. . .”

Wilson goes on to state, “. . . What’s alarming to me is that the survey found that those who are attending religious private schools are overall slightly more likely to lie and cheat than those attending public schools. If this is true—well, maybe the public school kids are better liars on the survey than the Christian kids—we as Christians are doing a very poor job transferring Christian values and morals to our children and grandchildren. . .”

Merely leaving the public schools and attending an alternative does not guarantee character development, which is the epitome of education.

IS IT TIME TO ABANDON PUBLIC EDUCATION?

The following video presents a case for all thinking parents to begin to exit the public schools en masse to literally and figurative save our children from the brainwashing and inculcation of a secular worldview that is dramatically opposed the values and virtues declared by our Founding Fathers.

Call to Dunkirk

Exodus Mandate’s video, embedded below, is calling all Christians to remove God's children from the Government schools.

Exodus Mandate is a Christian ministry to encourage and assist Christian families to leave Pharaoh's school system (i.e. government schools) for the Promised Land of Christian schools or home schooling. It is our prayer and hope that a fresh obedience by Christian families in educating their children according to Biblical mandates will prove to be a key for the revival of our families, our churches and our nation.




TAKE ACTION

Cal Thomas, renowned American journalist, recently was quoted in assessing the state of America’s public schools during a speech analyzing the recent election. According to the email that I recently received from Exodus Mandate, during his speech Thomas attributed the loss of Christian culture and the 2008 election to the secular public schools. He repeated urged those in his audience "to get your children out of the government schools." He did not offer conservative public school reform as the answer. His clarion call was clear that K-12 Christian education and home schooling is a main hope for a reversal in our cultural and moral demise.

Do you agree that it is time to take our children out of the growing corrupting influence of public education? If so, please help to get the message out and email this article or this link to the YouTube video above to your friends, relatives and associates.

We would do well in heeding the advice that Wilson offers as he concluded his article referenced above, with these words, “The Bible has a lot of good advice for raising children. Often quoted is Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way that he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Teaching a child right from wrong and the discipline to live a righteous life seems to be an ingredient missing in much of Christianity. Drifting away from the Bible and its instruction and relying on man’s interpretations, curricula, or even the imbalance of showing grace and mercy without consequences are all recipes for disaster. Another Proverb, 13:34, says, “He that spares the rod, hates his son: but he that loves him chastens him quickly.” We must do a better job teaching love, truth, honor, justice and responsibility.”

I agree that public education is definitely NOT the answer. However, the alternate form of education must be heavily endowed with Biblical, God-centered principles if it is to be effective temporally and eternally. The Josephson Institute study results warn us that merely rejecting or abandoning pubic education will not insure a solid, character-building education. Only a sound loving and Biblically-based education will do that. This puts a great onus on parents to prayerfully ponder and choose the proper way to educate their God-imaged child to insure that he or she live their lives providing the fullest measure glory to their Creator. Of course this educational process starts with every individual’s getting into a proper relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Wonderfully done!

I am a retired public school teacher.

My experiences, of trying to get scientific facts taught in the public schools (see my testimony), have proven--beyond the shadow of a doubt--that the public schools cannot be changed. Coupling that with my observations of the dumbing down movement of public education confirms that classroom teachers are encumbered so heavily that there is no hope to improve the pitiful academic situation in public schools. Even worse, the public schools are controlled by the ACLU, teacher unions , and other left-wing extremists which make the public schools detrimental, even dangerous, to all children--especially Christian children.

Christians are wasting time and resources because public schools cannot be redeemed.

I now encourage folks to get their children out of the public schools as articulated by Exodus Mandate. Briefly, this ministry seeks to counsel parents regarding their obligation to provide their children with a Christian education either in truly Christian or home schools.

Unless Jesus returns soon, our only hope is to remove our children from the public schools and raise a generation of uncompromised citizens.
