"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . .

THE CONSPIRACY: Educational Abduction

by A.M. Kisly


"Yesterday’s conspiracy theories often become today’s incontrovertible facts." Not sure where this quote originated, but how true!

The misuse of the term "conspiracy" has become a tool for those who want the truth hidden from those being conspired against.  The clear effect of terms such as "conspiracy theory" is meant to silence people who suspect a conspiracy may be happening.  The misuse of the term is nothing more than a smokescreen that serves the interests of the guilty and powerful.

In 1993 a book was published called, "An Educational Abduction" by Brannon Howse.  The book was about Outcome-Based Education, Goals 2000, America 2000, and Educational Indoctrination.  The book uncovers an agenda and strategy to undermine the role of parents raising their own children, as Brannon rightly calls it, "An Educational Abduction," which I will get to in a minute.

As the world's elite powers unite to bring about a New World Order, government leaders, and educational elites continue to push legislation that literally seeks to change America from a free individual nation and erase our Judeo-Christian values.  In order to achieve their goals the state educators continue to implement programs that are more about global attitudes, values and New Age religion, rather than  academic achievement or cognitive knowledge. We've already seen this happen in the past several decades, and will continue to see even more outrageous legislation being passed in order to indoctrinate children to accept a new global standard, the one that the Antichrist will one day rule.

While this article exposes new legislation, which is old legislation revived, it is also an exhortation to a true commitment to Christ, and what we need to be doing as the days become more evil, and the coming of Christ draws ever closer.   


Before we get into this book, or the latest legislation under consideration with regards to you, your children and their future, I'd like you to take a trip back in time before God was abandoned in our society and thrown out of our schools. From there we will jump back to the present day and you can tell me if you think we are really better off today than we were back then.  I think not!



From the book:

"Transport back to 1955.  For a few moments try to visualize this post-war period and its culture, people and values.

Those of us who were not alive then can use images from television re-runs like "Leave it to Beaver," and "Father Knows Best" to aid our imaginations.  

Most people don't bother to lock their doors, and kids roam freely up and down the streets without fear of abduction or drive-by shootings.
On school days, elementary children walk to the nearby neighborhood school.  After the teacher begins the day by reading a Psalm, the class says the Lord's Prayer aloud and then repeats the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.  On the wall, the Ten Commandments are posted beside a picture of the Good Shepherd holding a tender, young lamb.
At the high school, most students are grade conscious, and those who have no plans for college study for a trade at a "technical" school, or join the armed forces. There are a few school "dropouts', but even they are able to find jobs at local factories.
Television is a relatively new invention, and most programs revolve around American family life.  In fact, an entire family can watch almost any sitcom- or go to the movies together-without fear of being assaulted by filthy language, bedroom scenes, or grotesque violence.
Sure, the kids may call somebody a "queer", but few have ever met a homosexual.  Guys open the doors for their dates, and only "loose" girls call boys on the phone.  Most young people get married,  have children and raise a family with the same values they had learned from their parents as children."

Fast forward to the present:

"All the doors are locked, security systems installed and window bars are a necessity in most cities.
Kids never go anywhere alone, and nightly news portrays the sad faces of missing children across the nation.
School children rise before the crack of dawn to catch their bus to their schools across town. On the bus kids are smoking, doing drugs and discuss their sexual exploits from the night before.
Some are showing off their newest piercings or tattoos.
After passing through a metal detector, the students straggle into their classrooms girls in scant clothing, boys with pants strapped to their thighs.  The teacher begins the day with a few choice profanities.  Prayer is forbidden, as is the reading of the bible.  Anyone breaking that rule is quickly suspended for three days and threated with expulsion if he does it again.
Down the hall the school nurse begins her day handing out condoms to a few girls, for some reason the boys never request them.  Outside the nurses office, a lonely, depressed teenage girl waits for the dismissal slip that will get her out of classes for the day.  She'll be going for her abortion appointment, arranged by the school nurse and without her parents permission, of course.
When the bell rings, kids rush out of classrooms and into the hallways, pushing and shoving.  The less aggressive students hide in doorways for fear of being punched, grabbed, or even stabbed.  No one dares enter the restrooms unless they want to smoke or do drugs.  There is also the fear of sharing these same facilities with the opposite gender because his/her feelings is more important than biology or the feelings of those still adhering to traditional values.
During the next class, the students gather into groups to finish the "Project" they've been working on for weeks.  Most are laughing and talking while the teacher tries to maintain some semblance of order.  
Some students are worried they will not get accepted into college since they are no longer graded on academic subjects but merely rated on vague "outcomes."
Over at the elementary school, the teacher reads to her first grade class a story about a little girl who doesn't have a daddy, and whose mommy likes to be affectionate with a woman named Janet.
A game of dodgeball in gym class has been replaced with yoga-based lessons and mindfulness programs, though it is a religious practice of eastern religion, and the New Age Movement, it is allowed just as long as it is not Christianity.
When the kids arrive home from school, the kids watch TV.  Amidst a stream of profanity, blasphemy, nudity, and suggestive sexual jokes, the kids, along with their parents laugh without embarrassment."
Kids don't do chores, disrespect their parents, seldom obey, and feel entitled.

Since the decline of Christianity in society, our nation continues freefalling into more paganism, depravity,  and violence. The tragic consequences are of course the decline of our nation, but more importantly we are losing the next generation of kids to the god of this world.  We can no longer sit by and watch our nation self destruct and our families destroyed. I hope this article stirs you in your commitment to Christ, and challenges you act.

An Educational Abduction:

When "An Educational Abduction" first came out, Brannon and many of his readers were berated as conspiracy nuts...they said, "that will never happen."  Don't you just love when someone exposes a hidden agenda, they are labeled conspirators and looked upon as lunatics, while the real  conspirators who are devising deviant plans are somehow looked upon as the sane and sensible?  The last couple of presidential elections come to mind.



In chapter 4 of this book, Brannon talks about a program called "Parents as Teachers" which was a program based in Missouri, but expanding to other states around the U.S.  The pilot program was in fact launched in Missouri.  This was part of a plan called America 2000,  part of the United States Department of Education's goals for the children of America.  It's goal was to replace the "traditional" way of teaching and make major changes in our current educational system.  It sought to nationalize educational goals, achievement tests, school assessments, and vocational training.  Sounds good right?  Wrong! 

Something you should know, though these plans had been tabled, they have revived with each administration since George H. Bush. It was called America 2000 under then President George H. Bush.  It was called Goals 2000 under then President Bill Clinton, who by the way helped write it as a southern governor.  It was called No Child Left Behind under then President George W. Bush.  It was called RTTT (Race to the Top and Common Core under then President Barack Obama.  The name of the program might change from one administration to the other, but notice the Global Agenda is being pushed from both sides of the isle.

Though President Trump signed an executive order to eliminate Common Core, the powers that be at the state level continue to push back.


So what were the goals of this program?


Goal Number One of the six national goals of America 2000 allowed for the implementation of early childhood intervention programs such as "Parents as Teachers" and stated: "All children will start school ready to learn."  Though this sounded valid, it was in fact a smoke screen which hid the real agenda of America 2000.

From the book:


According to the late Phyllis Schlafly, president and founder of the pro-family group, Eagle Forum, "The first goal of America 2000 to deal with children before they enter school is extremely ominous."  She particularly finds the "Parents and Teachers" program "extremely objectionable."

Why?  Because, as Mrs. Schlafly points out, "Parents as Teachers should be called Teachers as Parents."
  
Phyllis Schlafly quickly points out that are not talking about parents teaching their children but quite the opposite.  Sort of like Abortion Mills referring to themselves as Planned Parenthood.

The reality is that schools are trying to substitute you as parents and take over the raising of the your children from infancy - something that schools and government of no right to do!  But that is part of the global agenda. They mean to indoctrinate your child from infancy through college, so that they are "ready" and "willing" citizens of a coming global system.


From the book:

On page 298 of America 2000 legislation, the statement was made: "Increased attention will be focused on adult behavior, responsibility for children and family, and community values essential for strong schools.  This includes involving parents as teachers of their children and as school partners."
I wonder what would happen if a parent decided not to cooperate?

From the book:

Implemented by Missouri in 1981, this program was supposed to help avert a rising drop-out rate and increase parental support of the educational system.  In 1985, the Missouri legislature passed a resolution "offering" - which means requiring all 543 school districts in Missouri the "Parents as Teachers" program. 
Based on a study conducted by nationally renowned child development expert, Dr. Burton White, who served as a consultant to the four pilot projects launched in 1981, this program DOES NOT ENCOURAGE PARENTS TO BE TEACHERS OF THEIR CHILDREN.  The real purpose is to teach parents how to submit to and parent according to the standards of the program.

So legislation was pushed to provide funding for "early intervention" programs such as the one stated above, and in 1991  a bill was introduced by the U.S. Senate....and tabled for the time being.

There was another bill called H.R. 520 introduced by the U.S. Senate that would have made this program a national program.  That too was shelved.

H.R. 520 stated, "Most early childhood programs begin at age three or four when remediation may already be necessary."  Remediation? From what? Parental upbringing, nurturing, love and guidance? This is a deliberate plan to do away with traditional family values, biblical Christianity, and God's moral law.

From the book:


Although presented as a voluntary program, once parents enlist, they have a hard time opting out without harassment from "Parent Educators".  If parents refuse to stay in the program or do not follow their adviser's instructions, the adviser will threaten to contact local child protection services to have the child removed from the home.  Several documented cases have shown that after a family has dropped out of the program, within a few days, a social worker shows up at the child's home! 
Can't happen in America, right?  Wrong!

Laura Rogers, a former researcher with Moore Foundation, had many reservations about the program. She stated, "A parent education bonds herself to a family through home visits or school visits in order to help the parents feel more comfortable about leaving their children at the center.  Both parents and children are evaluated under the guise of educational screening."

From the book:


In Missouri where "Parents as Teachers" had its start, measures were taken to protect family confidentiality.  Home educators are not permitted to share with anyone the information they collect during their visits. Yet Missouri's open records law grants public access to any of the PAT documents...so much for confidentiality! 
She makes another incredible observation:

"The child is given a personal computer code number by which he can be tracked the rest of his life.  There are twelve computer code definitions which label the child "at risk".  Since the expectation is that every child will be found "mentally ill," there is no code for normal."
Incredible! Why would every pre-schooler in the program be considered mentally ill?  Here's what Dr. Pierce (promoter of America 2000) had to say:

"Every child in America who enters school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government, patriotism, nationalism, sovereignty...all of that proves the children are sick, because the truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things and is what I would call the true international child of the future."
A true international child of the future? This is globalism! Forget history, forget facts, forget truth, forget everything....the plan is to program or re-program your child's mind and values in accordance to a politically correct system of the New World Order (government, religion, economy, culture). 


Who gets to determine how "sick" your child is?


From the book:

The power to label your child "at risk" belongs to the friendly "home educator" who visits your house regularly and makes notes about every aspect of your family life.

What kind of training does a person in such a responsible position receive?  Only 1 week - a mere thirty hours - is all that is required to make them "experts" on parenting and evaluators of your child's future.
Now there is a certain criteria the "home educator" will use to asses your child, they are the twelve "at risk" codes mentioned above. 

    • Premature babies, emergency deliver, or birth trauma
    • A child's slow growth, poor appetite, or frequent illness
    • Delayed development (who determines that?) Inability of parents to cope   with inappropriate child behavior, including spanking as form of discipline, and inconsistency. 
    • A parent who is ill, heavy, tired, depressed, handicapped, injured, or appears to be of low-level intelligence (wonder how they measure that?)
    • Overindulgence, undue spoiling on part of the parent.
    • Stress in the family, such as a parent that has to travel frequently, moving to a new home, a death in the family, divorce or separation, birth of a sibling, three children under the age of three, prolonged illness, loss of a job, low level income.
    • Allergies, heavy cigarette smoking in the house, family history of hearing loss, lack of stimulation or over stimulation, predominantly inappropriate or very few toys. 
Would your family, your children be at risk under these codes? Of course they would.  That is the way the program is designed....full control by them, no control by you!

Let's not forget to talk about the money...

The more "at risk" children in the county, the more money the program gets.  The more "at risk" children in the state, the more money the state gets.

Like I stated before, both the Republicans and Democrats have been on board with this type of program.  So now we get to see where it came from...

This is the brain child of Robert Muller. Mr. Muller was former Assistant Director of the United Nations.  He is endearingly referred to as the "father of global education".  But do you know where he got his ideas from?  Robert Muller was heavily influence by Alice Bailey.  Alice Bailey was an occultist who channeled demons, then wrote many books calling for the New World Order....their words, not mine!  The global education plan you hear about was created by globalists for specific purposes, that is to remove and replace the parent with those who will mold kids for the societal changes they are making.

Of course, this legislation has not passed, but it has not gone away either.



Fast-forward to 2019...

In January of this year, reporting from Washington State's Governor's office, Inslee pushes for universal home visits for newborns and continued early learning expansion for thousands more children

From the article:

The round table discussion focused on two aspects of his early learning budget: universal home visiting and a statewide resource and referral system.
"The most important investment we can make is in our children," Inslee said.  "We know that the benefits from early learning programs extend throughout a child's life."  

Inslee proposes the following as a "statewide comprehensive early learning initiative:


  • Universal home visiting and universal newborn assessments
  • A statewide early learning referral system
  • Increasing rates for early learning providers and funding for quality improvements
  • Set up a new affordable preschool program
  • Provide capital funding for new early learning and preschool classrooms


On January 15, 2019, Paula Bolyard, of PJ Media reported: Oregon Could Become the First State to Require In-Home Surveillance of Newborn Babies

Senate Bill 526, introduced this month (January 2019) in the Oregon Legislative Assembly as part of Brown's budget, orders the Oregon Health Authority to "study home visiting by licensed health care providers."  Lawmakers went so far as to declare that SB 526 is an "emergency" measure - one that requires a resolution by the end of the year. The intro to the bill, the language of which has not yet been crafted, reads:
The Oregon Health Authority shall study home visiting by licensed health care providers in this state.  The authority shall submit findings and recommendations for legislation to an interim committee of the Legislative Assembly related to health care not later than December 31, 2019.
Moreover, the 18 sponsors of the bill claim that its passage is "necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety," and therefore "an emergency is declared to exist."

Necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace?  Bringing home a newborn somehow threatens the public peace if Big Brother isn't monitoring every move in a private home?  If you are wondering if this will also include mandatory vaccinations whether a parent wants them or not.  The answer is yes!

From the article:
According to the Beaver Valley Times, "When the program is complete, EVERY NEW PARENT - this includes adoptions - would receive a series of two or three visits by someone like a nurse or other health care practitioner.  The visits could include basic health screenings for babies; hooking parents up with primary care physicians; linking them to other services (wonder what those are); and coordinating the myriad childhood immunizations that babies need."

It is not my intention to go through the entire book, my intention is to bring to your attention an agenda that basically usurps the authority of the parent over the child and places it directly in the hands of those carrying out a globalist agenda.  If you want to read the book, I would encourage you to buy a copy. It is definitely a worthy read and is available on  Amazon: An Educational Abduction, by Brannon Howse.

A few of the things I wanted to point out to you was this:

1. That the agenda and strategy of globalists has not changed.
2. That educational institutions have been working on these goals for decades.
3. That doctrines of demons are behind all of it.
4. That Christian's need to be warned in order to make wise decisions for their families.
5. That these are in fact a sign of the end times.
6. That the New World Order will usher in the Antichrist, and bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
7. That we need to be fully Commited to Christ, a true disciple.
8. That we are called to action.

That said, James and I were discussing that neither one of us could have possibly dreamed how bad things would get. Our traditional Christian values are being replaced with doctrines of demons....literally before our eyes.  Faith in Christ is being replaced by the "new consciousness" that focuses on the idolatry of self, rather than the Deity of Christ. Educators are now working with religious apostates in order to bring about this social change. 

Well known feminist Gloria Steinem once said, "By the year 2000 we will, I hope, raise our children to believe in human potential, not God."  Here we are in 2019, and the glorification of self is now predominant in our culture.

So called "proper socialization" has become the focus of public educational institutions, and the eradication of traditional education.

Some History:


The roots of what we see happening in public education can be traced back to John Dewey, the  "father of education" in America.   

(See: TTUF Profiles On: John Dewey - FORTH COMES The GLOBAL EDUCRATS – Part One of Three , by James Fire.)



John Dewey explains:
"I believe the true center of correlation on the school subjects is not science, nor literature, nor history, nor geography, but the child's social activities . . .  I believe that the school is primarily a social institution . . .The teacher's business is simply to determine, on the basis of the larger experience and riper wisdom, how the discipline of life shall come to the child . . .All these questions of the grading of the child and his promotion should be determined by reference to the same standard.  Examinations are of use only so far as they test the child's fitness for social life."
Dewey's Marxism clearly portrayed here.  Brannon Howse states in his book, Grave Influence, that "John Dewey and company were interested only in knowing where to place students in the social and economic hierarchy.  Tests were to determine a child's area of worldview weakness.  Once the weakness is determined, the child's attitude's, values, feelings and emotions that don't fit the State's worldview are changed via the curriculum - as Benjamin Bloom said, to change the student's fixed beliefs.  Those who do not conform are punished by being channeled into dead-end, low-income jobs."

While Christianity has been ushered out the front door of our schools, secular humanists have made their way in through the back door hidden from public scrutiny, and so begins the cultural revolution.

Let's Review:

Who was John Dewey?  (I refer you to the article by James Fire posted above.)

A quick review of Dewey's involvements: John Dewey is the Father of America's Socialist Educational System.  He lived from 1859-1952, was a man who is considered by all standards  the most influential authority in America’s education system.  To give you an idea of the kind of influence of John Dewey, here is a list of some of the groups he was involved with and helped to found.

He was a Fabian Socialist - the Fabian Society in the USA became the League for Industrial Democracy (LID)  A Fabian Socialist hates Christianity and wants a one world system of government, and will use religion to get it done.

He was one of the founders of Secular Humanism: A worldview based on atheism and naturalism in which "man is the measure" of all things; man, not God, is the ultimate norm by which truth and morals are to be determined.

A signer of the Humanist Manifesto I - (1933 The New Humanist; 1973 The American Humanist Association) https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/manifesto1/

President of the League for Industrial Democracy - aka Fabian Socialists;  Dewey was nominated as it's president: 1939

A founding member of the American Civil Liberties Unionhttps://spartacus-educational.com/USAdewey.htm
 

Back in 1910 George Bernard Shaw created a stained glass window called the Fabian Window.  The window includes 2 men banging on a molten earth, 1 holding it in place with a pair of tongs, and across the top it reads, “Remold it nearer to the hearts desire.”

Looking at the earth on fire, they see it as a world in crisis, and they will use that crisis, or create their own (fake) crisis to do the things that they could never otherwise do, and to get people to go along with things they would never otherwise go along with, global warming comes to mind.  Creating a crisis in order to implement a new social change starting in our educational institutes, with our youngest minds.

Also included in this picture is a wolf in sheep’s clothing embedded in the shield above a world being beaten into the Fabian mold.  Incredible picture of what they are all about...deception and subversive tactics are their ways.  I can't help but think of Matthew 7:15 which tells the believer to, "Beware of the false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."  Satan has his army of wolves who are out there conspiring, and working very hard to remove God, the Christian faith, God's moral law, and His authority out of every area of life, especially in the hearts and souls of your children.


John Dewey helped start the American Counterpart to the British Fabian Society. The British Fabian Society gave birth to the Labor Party, who then gave birth to Prime Minister Tony Blair, and what did Tony Blair do, he created the Tony Blair Faith Foundation trying to bring the religions of the world together as one,  a one world religious system. And so, Dewey brought the British Counterpart of the Fabian Society to America through the elite of Industrial Democracy.

John Dewey also helped Robert Baldwin, an outright Communist, to found the American Civil Liberties Union.

 From News With Views Thomas R. Hart, a contributing writer (Dr. Dennis Cuddy, mentioned below, is also a contributing writer) gives us more background on John Dewey and the ramifications and fruits of his labors:


“John Dewey lived from 1859-1952, overlapping the adult life of Roger Nash Baldwin (1884-1981) by 40 years. Both were educators, both shared in the 1920 founding of the ACLU, and both were communists, albeit that Dewey was an anti-Stalin Marxist while the younger Baldwin was a CPUSA (Communist Party of the USA) Stalinist.“Neither man was a Christian or believer in God. Baldwin was raised as a Unitarian and was a firm believer in their socialist credo "to affirm and promote the inherent dignity and worth of every person." While that Unitarian philosophy was as close to religion as Dewey ever came even later in life, both are listed as "Notable American Unitarians."


“Dewey, who is commonly known as the "Father of Modern Education" was the originator of using public education for social change, the idea that started the systematic brainwashing of America's children.“To know him as the 'Father of Modern Educational Brainwashing' would be more suitable, as many believe that the modern educational philosophy and practice of the National Education Association [More on the NEA in a bit] is to brainwash students in order to achieve social change.”

John Dewey is responsible for bringing intellectuals from Frankfort School in Germany to America in 1933. It was there that an Institute for Marxism was founded in 1923, then quickly took a more neutral label, "The Institute for Social Research."   These intellectuals were given jobs at major universities in the U.S. The American Jewish Committee hired the majority of Frankfurt School refugees to direct a decade-long Studies in Prejudice, which produced five major works.  The most famous of the Studies, The Authoritarian Personality which trashed American postwar morality, arguing that, because the vast majority of Americans still believed in the virtues of God, nation and family, America was ripe for a fascist authoritarian takeover.  Any belief in a transcendent God was fascist.....it is from this work that "political correctness" which triumphs today, was born.

In 1928, he traveled to Russia to help implement the Karl Marx system of education. 

Then he returned to America to teach at Columbia University as head of that university’s department of education.  

Dewey supported the upstart to Socialists Society in America while also being an honorary president the National Education Association.  

Getting the picture?  

Dewey accomplish a great deal in America which undermines our Christian faith, and our founding fathers.  Again, he is called the father of modern education.

John Dewey was not about education, but about Socialization.  He used the power of education to being an instrument for bringing about progressive socialists, little socialists.

Dewey published a book called, A Common Faith, which promotes Secular Humanism.  This was the leading force behind bringing a group of German intellectuals (from the Frankfort School) to America.  The Frankfort School promulgated the worldview of Friedrich Nietzsche, and with the arrival of the school’s founders in 1933, they set about to implement cultural Marxism in every area of American life under the disguise of political correctness.

Political Correctness is the mechanism for Global Governance.


Nothing new under the sun here, folks, but what is new is the once seemingly quiet infiltration of government, education, culture and religion ( the wolf in sheep's clothing pictured in Shaw’s Fabian Window),  has now become the loud banging, harassing, threatening voice of force in a final push for a New World Order throughout every area of society. The common thread here from Dewey on up to present day, is that they all embrace each others worldviews, and influenced by doctrines of demons. America 2000 is Goals 2000 is No Child Left Behind is Race to the Top and Common Core.  The “Parent as Teacher” program in 1993, is the Oregon State Senate Bill 526 of 2019.

 I have often wondered how this could happen so easily in a once Christian nation.  Perhaps it was because average people were busy about their own business going to work, church and raising their families.  Average families may not have ever heard of such things.  Also, decades ago they did not have the advantage of technology…we are in some ways fortunate we live in the technical era, as people are able to access information that in years past didn’t have access to, we are also cursed by the same technology, as people whose lives are not governed by God are easily ensnared in every form of wickedness imaginable.

The following quote from John Dewey is what sums up his philosophy, which by the way is now prevalent in all of America’s educational system and curriculum:


"There is no God and no soul. Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion.  With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable (unchangeable) truth is also dead and buried.  There is no room for fixed, natural law, or permanent moral absolutes.”

Exactly what Friedrich Nietzsche said, “There is no such thing as truth”, and “There is no such thing as reality”, and  “There are no facts only interpretations.”  Nietzsche also said, “The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

Forget the foundations, Nietzsche didn’t believe in God, he believed in the Age of Enlightenment and science. He reveled in the hopes that it would do away with the True, Inerrant, Infallible Word of God. He desired the broad way of philosophical materialism and naturalism thereby doing away with God’s moral law and the authority He has over mankind.

Nietzsche hated God and hated Christians. Not only is he best known for declaring “God is dead,’ but declared Christianity has been the most calamitous kind of arrogance yet, and “I call Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion, the one moral blemish of mankind…I regard Christianity as the most seductive lie that has yet existed.”  Nietzsche referred to himself as “The Anti-Christian Friedrich Nietzsche” or sometimes as just “The Antichrist.”  And he is calling Christianity arrogant? 

While one expects to a certain degree that secular society will embrace the lies of the globalists, even kids raised in Christian homes who are sent off to college or university are forsaking their Christian faith and embracing the secular view after only a few short years.

How disheartening! Somehow, somewhere there is a crack in their foundation.  Perhaps it is because they have never truly committed their lives to the Lord.  Perhaps going to church doesn't make anyone a true Christian.  Perhaps they are not rooted and grounded in the Word of God, and therefore are easily persuaded by deception.  There are a number of reasons for this, and with eternal destinies at stake, we must find the solution.

While the world has an agenda for your child from cradle to university, God has a plan for them too.

What do we do?

I think it is time we re-evaluate our commitment to Christ. Our commitment to Him is our Highest Calling and our greatest reward. Do we love Him first and foremost?  Are we growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord?  Are we true disciples seeking to know Him more, to be like Him and to do His will?  When our kids observe our lives to they see lip service or discipleship?  Hypocrisy, or commitment?
Ephesians 2:2, "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience."
How do we stand against the attacks of Satan?  I think I quote this in almost every article I write, but God's Word tells us that we are in a battle that involves the "prince and the power of the air," which is Satan.

Ephesians 6:11, "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." Why?  Vs.13, "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day.."

Are we not living in an evil day?  Wickedness permeates the culture around us, what was once taboo, is now the law of the land. Evil agendas to indoctrinate your children and usurp your authority are in full swing.  Do we sit idly by and watch it happen? Do we compromise, go along to get along?  Are we afraid our friends, family or co-workers will reject us if we take a stand?  Are we lacking in biblical knowledge? Are we ourselves being persuaded by the arguments of the secular worldview?  Have we forgotten our citizenship is in heaven?

Brethren, though we are in the world, we are not of the world! Right?  Our worldview should be that of a biblical Christian. Whether you are in school or at work and surrounded by the liberal culture, our main concern isn't location, but rather the source of our information. Whose words do you value, God's or man's?  If the environment you are in starts to change the way you think, the values you hold dear, and what you know to be true, change your environment.  God's heart, his mind, his will is found in scripture. No matter where you are physically, your spiritual environment never changes....stay in God's Word, and stay in prayer!  

1 John 2:15, "Do not love the world nor the things in the world, If anyone loves the world the love of the Father is not in him."

NO COMPROMISE!

Romans 12:2, "And do not be conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

Commit yourselves to the Word of God.  Stand on His sure Word of promise.  
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  Hebrew 4:12
God's Word should not be collecting dust on a bookshelf somewhere in the house, it is to be read and studied and applied to our lives and written in our hearts. God's Word guides us through every situation in every single day of our lives.
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16).
God's Word has not changed, and will never change.  What does change is our willingness to accept the activities and lifestyles that are an abomination to God.  God sets the moral standard, not man. Justifying sin is not scriptural, the gospel calls all men to repentance. He forgives and cleanses and gives us new life in Him.

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17

"That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Ephesians 4:22-24

Jesus told his disciples, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."  Matthew 16:24

We must be willing to accept Christ's mandates, His goals, His plan for our lives, His desires, His Word as our own, "So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple" (vs. 33).


A radical commitment to Christ could cost you everything, your family, friends, jobs. To some, it may cost you your life.  How committed are you?  We have been taught to "count the cost" in Luke 14:28.  What does that mean?  Jesus lays it out for us in Luke 14:26-35,

in relation to our love for God and His will, our love for our family, friends and ourselves  pales greatly by comparison. Our love for God should be paramount!
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength and with all thy mind" (Matthew 10:27). Scripture also teaches that in so loving the Lord, "a man's foes shall be they of his own household" (Matthew 10:36).  If we are ever faced with such a choice, the one who is truly Christ's disciple must follow Him.
We are to take up our cross and follow him. This means more than just the ordinary burdens and the troubles of life, it means a daily willingness to die for Him if need be. It means to recken ourselves to be dead to sin, and alive to God through Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:11) We mortify the lusts of our flesh, because it leads to sin and we no longer live under the rule of sin.  Crucify the flesh, heed the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and submit yourself to the Lord.


If we are to STAND IN THE EVIL DAY, we are to be truly committed to the Lord, His Word, and His service.  If we are to protect our children from those who use their power and influence for evil, we must be that instrument in God's hands to work out His will. We must be committed to teaching, instructing and raising our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.  It is not the Sunday school teachers responsibility to lead your kids to Christ, it is yours!  Take those young lives God has given you and mold them as disciples for Him and His service, instilling into their hearts the Word of God.

Until those things that have been prophesied in scripture are fulfilled, remember our mission is the same as it has always been: fulfilling the Great Commission.  Time is short, so let us continue to run the race that is before us and fight the good fight of faith.  Don't be a spectator, take your place on the battlefield to which God has called you, and engage in the battle...we don't fight to lose, we fight to win.  Win the hearts of your children for Christ.

Great Read. Thank you for posting
As a parent and Pastor I see the need of teaching the Word to our children more and more as the days continue. The agenda is obvious for our children, but The Lord's will be done in our lives as we submit to Him. I am comforted knowing the Holy Spirit in the believers lives will continue to teach us to stand in the gap and fight against these movements that are attacking our family structure.

If ever there was a time for parents to get serious about their faith, walking the walk and not just talking the talk, to genuinely disciple their children, even considering removing them from the ungodly influences, indeed, the satanic influences of the public school system and establish a Home School Co-OP system that gets back to the 3 R's as well as the godly 3R's - repentance, righteousness and revelation (as in getting back to the Bible), IT IS NOW!!!

This article is a must read for Christian parents and educational professionals.

I read this book with some interest. As a retired teacher and administrator in the public school system in Canada I can see how much of what it warns about is playing out in our school system - to the detriment of the children. "The counter to tipping points, activists, social agendas and populism is faith. Sadly, this is something the world doesn’t want to hear. Most prefer lies; 'For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.' (2 Timothy 4:3,4) Faith is still the foundation for the thinking person as it always has been!" Read more at: https://scrapbookwithtony.wordpress.com/2018/06/08/the-majority-doesnt-rule/
