Sadly, many Christians think, speak and act as if they are wiser than God. They see nothing wrong with sending their children to Government indoctrination centers to have them brainwashed by a humanist curriculum. They are under the delusion that their children will be fine as long as they take them to a 45-minute Sunday school class once a week, see their parents pray over meals, and participate in family devotions. These things may be well and good, but they are no match for 25 or 30 hours a week of compartmentalized godless programming. Perhaps their pastors have not sufficiently warned them of the dangers lurking on the campus. These are matters of life and death. Please get informed.
Myth: The influence of a loving Christian home is sufficient to overcome the evils of public education.
Here are some excerpts from an article by Dr. Phil Stringer of Landmark Baptist College:
The concept of government control of education has become so accepted in the United States that most people take it for granted. Yet, there is no concept of civil government controlling education in the Bible, in the Constitution, or in the first 75 years of American history. The American people need to rethink the idea that the civil government should be responsible for educating children.
The problem is not just poor academic achievement, the wasteful spending of the public school system, or the loss of moral standards. The problem is that the government is the wrong agency to be involved in education. Public education is unconstitutional and inefficient. But, most of all, it is unbiblical.
All education is religious in nature, even when educators pretend that it is not. All forms of education are based upon a world view. All forms of education try to answer basic questions of life that are religious in nature. In fact, many of the current debates about separation of church and state involve the public schools.
It’s High Time for a Mass Exodus
Just a few decades ago, participating in home schooling was like pulling teeth. Regiments of social workers, accompanied by law enforcement, were pounding on doors everywhere and confiscating children. It was a nightmare for decent families who had their fill of the public school system. These were the pioneers constantly living under the threat of family disruption. Parents lived in mortal terror of these bureaucrats lurking and looking for the slightest pretext of “child abuse” by homeschoolers.
Today, homeschooling is legal in every state, but the battle is far from over. The Home School Legal Defense Association is barraged with calls from members complaining of harassment from school officials who either are drunk with power or don’t know the laws of their state. It seems strange that these highly paid people would be inept in their bureaucratic business. We need to increase our numbers so these oppressors will take notice and back off.
There is a mind-set in American academia that would force all our children to be subject to some of the most outrageous classroom antics you could imagine. Note the following from Public Advocate:
The Radical Homosexuals infiltrating the United States Congress have a plan: Indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society. Their ultimate dream is to create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the values you and I cherish are long forgotten.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. If you intend to fight this battle, please don’t send your children to the front line. Keep them out of harm’s way until they are mature enough to contend with the enemy. And even then, don’t send them to the pagan temples; train them at home. Christ is not only ignored by the government schools, He is actively excluded by law. Thus, it is no exaggeration to conclude that public schools are “anti-Christ” and that Christian children are being taught by anti-Christ. it is long past due for mature Christians to take up this holy cause and pull their children from the jaws of death
