There were very few parents at the event, which was disappointing. They scheduled it the same day that a sports event was taking place at the school, so there was no shortage of parents at the school, just few actually came into the library. This was even more disappointing. The person in charge talked to us personally for nearly an hour. She was very cordial, well-spoken and politely direct, at least on certain topics. I promised not to name her in this blogpost. At the same time, I let her know I would be writing about our conversation. She intimated a desire to do the job she was given even though it was not her favorite part of her day.
The two sides were clearly drawn as the Pastor I accompanied began to make his arguments that education without God is indoctrination. She countered with the obvious separation of ‘church and state’, while he explained the history of that statement. This never meant that God should be removed entirely, only that there should not be a state-run church. This was to protect the church from the state not the state from the church. She brought up the point that there are now other religions in the mix so we cannot choose one over another. It was here she was stuck—if all things were equal that would be true, but only one claim can be true. It was here she fell silent.
They have no problem with stories of witchcraft.
The Pastor pointed out that the preamble to the state’s constitution, as well as our federal constitution both mention God. The woman (a former history teacher) conceded to that point but only wanted to deal with in a historical context. It was here she retreated to sentiment. Apparently when she taught middle school students, ‘every year’ she had a pregnant student. So, this was her argument for supporting sex ed, “they are going to do it anyway.” The Pastor claims education that teaches ungodliness is a form of tax fraud. Who is right? What should a parent do?
Here we see they have no problem with promoting the Day of the Dead
In all fairness, the students have a choice to opt out of these courses, in most of the states which require this curriculum. Should Christians support organizations that teach such contradictions of terms as “safe [unmarried] sex”? The Bible calls this fornication. The teacher conceded to the goodness of the law of God. She agreed with the fact that when someone is promiscuous they show a low value of themselves. When I brought up the over-sexualization of children in organizations like the Boy Scouts, Drag Queen Story Hour was mentioned, and she was very somber. She said, as parents, we have been “asleep at the wheel”.
While, I am thrilled she sees the problem and she has not gone the way of some, defending perversion; still, she is part of the problem. As long as we can’t speak of God and His Word we have no objective standard to work with. Without the truth of God, all we are left with is men and their opinions. In the new curriculum there are three “R”s; rights, respect and responsibility. We agree with teaching responsibility but does a person not have a responsibility to God, first and foremost? The term ‘rights’ has been used (more often than not) to defend wickedness and make provision for the flesh. While it is true we have been given free-will, that should never boil down to saying we have a ‘right’ to disobey God. An individual’s sins hurt everyone. Should we respect those who show no respect towards anyone else, even for their own creator?
These are the apparent heroes of today. The picture (Top right) was taken when
John Lennon decided to "stay in bed" where he admitted he was high on heroin.
There are two camps of thought here. The side of the teacher is that she can make a difference and show godly principles without mentioning God. She wants to make a difference in the world, while maintaining her faith secretly. People who dwell in this camp will often mention the book of Esther, which never mentions God but shows His handiwork throughout. The side of the preacher is a bit more like the prophet Elijah saying, “How long will you halt between two opinions?” Serve God or serve the devil, but, attempting to serve both is futile. Let us look at the Scriptures and you can decide for yourself.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
This verse doesn’t say anything specifically about God and taken by itself you could certainly argue the case for secularism. Can we not teach someone right and wrong without mentioning God? Still, the example we have to draw from in the Old Testament shows over and over parents being exhorted to teach their children the laws of God. The children were expected to recite, from memory, a certain portion of the Torah as a rite of passage. If they failed there were consequences, they were not considered adults, could not govern properties etc..
“And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord.”-Exodus 10:1
What is foolishness, according to the Bible? Is it not to act as though there is no God?
 Ps. 14:1; 53:1
“Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.” -Psalm 143:10
Samuel began a school of prophets which continued through the days of Elisha. IT had to be added onto in order to house the many students. The Hebrew boys were taught in the ‘learning, and the tongue of the Chaldees’. It should be remembered that the same ‘boys’ stood in the fiery furnace refusing to disavow their God. The School of Gamaliel was the school which taught Paul to be zealous towards God. It would seem the consistent theme is that children should be taught first and foremost to fear God. How can that be accomplished in an institution which denies Him His very singular ‘right’ to glory?
