It’s August in America – that time of year when tens of millions of professing Christians in the “land of the free” and the home of the NSA happily send their precious little children off to the State for State-run, pro-State, explicitly anti-Christian “education” in direct violation of the crystal clear Word of God.
It doesn’t matter how many Scripture-affirming horror stories hit the news on a daily basis.
It doesn’t matter how many lesbian-led kindergarten classes are brought to light, how many “Transgender” kindergarten programs are revealed, how many overtly anti-Christian concepts are openly taught, or even if the US Department of Education comes out of the closet as formally and officially gay. (See: American Public Schools are Officially Gay.)

It doesn’t matter how many detailed and thoroughly biblical repudiations of pagan approaches to children’s “education” are presented as vivid warnings by God’s grace through His faithful people. (See: Ten answers to those “What about socialization?” questions from public school advocates. and Ten problems with the “salt and light” excuse for feeding children to the State.)
The bottom line is that, however clear the command of God may be and however increasingly (and obviously) horrible the consequences of State-run children’s “education” may be, the vast majority of professing Christians in America are even now in this late and dark hour very comfortable with and very committed to the anti-Christian beast of Statist “education”.
Thus, they continue to feed their children to the beast…all while claiming to “wonder” why the culture seems to be getting worse with each passing day why each generation of Americans seems to inevitably become more inclined towards Secularism, Statism, and Paganism.
How (oh how!) could this possibly be happening in America?
How could State-run “education” possibly produce…more dependence on the State?!
How could State-run “education” possibly lead to…more Statism?!
What farcical questions.
What profound self-deception.
What pride, arrogance and foolishness on display.
All of which fuel the ongoing child sacrifice of tens of millions from professing Christian families – children whose minds are freely offered up to a beast openly advocating an approach to “education” lifted straight from the serpent’s tongue in Eden…and later The Communist Manifesto. (See: Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge.)
Yet even with all of this so easily verified history(just read The Communist Manifesto), even with Scripture so lovingly clear, and even with the ever-building mountain of evidence screaming to us that the Word of God is as completely true and as completely binding on this critical issue as it is on any other, we still find ourselves led and encouraged to ignore it all and just keep feeding our children to the beast. (See: “Christian leaders” STILL encourage Christians to keep feeding their children to the beast of anti-Christian/State-run “education”.)
It’ll all work out in the end.
Don’t worry; just go with the flow.
Be a good patriot. Be a good American. Be a compliant citizen. Obey the State…and give your children to the State so that they too can become what the State and its Corporate owners want them to be.
Obviously the State encourages us in this direction.
Obviously the Corporate masters of the State do so as well.
But the most effective and destructive leaders of the way down this dark path to child- and culture-sacrifice have not been the more overtly Pagan leaders of Corporate or State interests. The most insidious and productive instigators of this long, steady march to anti-Christian Statism have actually been the professing Christian leaders, pastors and priests who have encouraged their flocks to keep right on feeding its next generation into the culture- and worldview-shredding slaughterhouse that is State-run children’s “education”. (See: Why is the beast of Socialism eating our children? Ask your pastor.)
So as we see State-run buses wandering the countryside scooping up the children enthusiastically handed over by tens of millions of professing Christians all across the land, remember: Judgment begins with the house of God. (See: Judgment begins with the Church…not the Democrats.)
The culture is where it is now because Christians have led it there by example. If the Church will not obey the Lord in something as critical and civilization-defining as the cultivation of their own children’s minds, then what coherent Gospel or Great Commission position can be claimed, much less publicly advocated, by that Church? (See: Limp Wristed Gospels Make Limp Wristed Cultures.)

If we will not obey Christ, why would anyone take seriously our presentation of the Gospel command to repent?
If we will not submit to the lordship of Christ over the minds and lives of our own children, then how can we blame others for the increasingly anti-Christian nature of the culture in which we have been placed? (See: How to NOT stop the Big Gay Bullies that are raping the culture.)
If Scripture doesn’t really bind us on children’s education, then why does it bind them on homosexuality, “gay marriage”, or abortion?
What are we teaching them about education?
What are we teaching them about truth?
What are we teaching them about the pursuit and application of knowledge?
Are we teaching them through our example obedience to Christ or rebellion against Him?
And what is the State purposefully teaching children about all of these things?
Choose this day whom you will serve, professing American Christian:
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. ~ Deuteronomy 6:4-7 (emphasis added)
“Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” ~ Joshua 24:14-15 (emphasis added)
For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? ~ 1 Peter 4:17
. . . if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. ~ 2 Chronicles 7:14 (emphasis added)
There will be no healing of America apart from the broken repentance and subsequent grace-fueled obedience of the professing American church.
Please pray and act accordingly.
