Forget “Should public schools reopen?” The important question is: Should government-run child programming factories exist?
If we don’t ask the right questions, we’ll never find the answers that we need most, and everything about the systems dominating our dying culture is aimed at preventing us from asking – or even thinking – those most important questions. Questions like: Should government be given power to shape the minds of the young? […]
Most of us have heard some version of the saying: “There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.” While the spirit of the phrase seems virtuous enough at a passing glance, it’s important for us to understand that, in certain contexts, there are indeed stupid questions, and that some of those questions are dangerously stupid […]
Who knew that New York’s approach to “legalized” child sacrifice could be upstaged so quickly? We didn’t even get a full week to bask in the satanic glow of The Empire State’s “legalization” of child murder right up until the moment of birth before Virginia’s apparently even more satanically inspired leadership decided to float […]
Just look at all of those American schoolkids being led by their teacher in a mass, Nazi-style Socialist salute. Hard to believe that was common in U.S. public schools not so long ago. What? You had no idea? You think I’m making it up? You’ve never heard (or seen the many pictures) of American kids […]
The insanity of reality is sure making satire tough to ID. (While also killing our children, of course.)
While satire may not be the most important casualty (or even in the top ten) where our culture’s headlong, church apathy-fueled plunge into darkness is concerned, it’s worth noting that the more off-the-rails bat-guano crazy our All-American rocket ride to hell gets, the harder it becomes to easily identify satire. . Again, this is not […]
As we roll into August, two sad trends are likely to continue: 1. Public schools will continue to deny Christ as Lord while embracing the satanic model of education first advocated in Genesis 3, discipling the young accordingly, and 2. Millions of professing Christian parents will continue to feed their precious little 4-, 5-, and […]
It’s August again, which, in even numbered years like this one, means two things ’round these parts: 1.) The vast majority of Americans – including most self-described conservative Christians, are dutifully feeding their children to the State for another year of explicitly anti-Christian, pro-Socilism/Statism “education”, and 2.) The same folks just finished happily supporting […]
It’s easy to be distracted from a good joke when the world is burning around you. But sometimes the joke is so good – so delicious in its irony and powerful in its purpose – that we’re well served to take a sec out of our crazy busy lives to savor the awesomeness of the […]
Who said you can’t curse the darkness and light a great big glorious candle at the same time? . We can multitask, right? . When it comes to the life-and culture-shaping subject of children’s education, we ought to be able and willing to expose and tear down the educational idols of our age while at […]
Public school product just gets worse and worse. Trusted old cover-up tools like grade inflation aren’t getting the job done anymore. Wave after wave of super-confident and proud, yet stunningly ignorant and incompetent public school product is washing over the culture, and no matter how many artificial A’s and participation trophies are handed out, there’s […]
When do we call an idiot factory an idiot factory? Would a 2/3 nationwide illiteracy rate do the trick?
What if the vast majority of an entire wave of public school product couldn’t even read or understand mathematics proficiently? What if two thirds (that’s two outta three students for those of you who struggle with fractions) of public school product was that intellectually hobbled and incompetent after years and years of State-run “education”? Would […]
One of the most tragi-comedic displays emanating from self-described Christians in America these days is the way that most of them still excuse, defend, enable, and/or encourage the perpetuation of public schools. The willful (and suicidal) idiocy of this situation only grows more cringe-worthy as each near-daily revelation of the evil foundation of public schools […]
College campuses have long been known and even openly celebrated as massive dens of debauchery, a place where “kids” go to “sow their wild oats” and enjoy “the college experience”, which is assumed to include indulging in all manner of sexual depravity and substance abuse. The basic idea is (and has been for longer than […]
What would you give up in housing, car(s), clothes, vacations, and/or toys in order to get (or keep) your little ones out of the State-run “education” system and secure for them in its place both daily on-site parenting and a Christ-centered approach to the pursuit of knowledge? Would you be willing significantly downgrade your home […]
First public schools gave up on even attempting to coherently define such tricky concepts as “boy” and “girl”, banking on the fact that most American parents would ultimately decide to just roll along with their “professionally” orchestrated plunge into terminal idiocy…and they did. Even after the American public school system “came out” as totally pro-gay, […]
1. The primary purpose of State “help” is to foster State dependence. 2. More and more Americans love – and demand – State “help” in practically every area of life. These two realities make it plain that, barring radical repentance and reformation, we are (and should be) a doomed people – and by “people” here […]
Public schools don’t get nearly enough credit for the truly amazing job they’re doing. In an age when wildly inaccurate things are routinely paraded around as truth, one of the most ridiculously off-base assertions regularly repeated by Americans from all across the political spectrum is the contention that public schools are somehow failing in their […]
While you may not have instantly noticed that the wire baskets set sideways on a table in the above picture are actually computer screens, that’s exactly what they are. The two kiddos parked on each side of the table facing a “computer screen” of their own are none other than my daughter Rosie (4) and […]
Every time a so-called conservative in America argues for the “indivisibility” of any particular government above any particular people, which they can’t seem to help doing when it comes to their beloved United States of America, I can’t help but imagine Twilight Zone theme music accompanying their presentation. Throw in the fact that most of these […]
Let’s be clear about a few key facts: 1. Government distributed vouchers are Socialism. 2. Vouchers are the forced redistribution of resources in accordance with basic Marxist/Socialist principles. 3. Vouchers are funded through the confiscation (theft) of private property by using the coercive power of the state. I understand that there are many good, God-fearing, conservatively […]
Should “Salt And Light” Christians Take A Knee During The Socialist-Written, Socialism-Promoting Pledge of Allegiance?
Should those claiming to be “salt and light” in State-run children’s schools take a knee or protest/decline in some other way when prompted to take the Socialist-written, Socialism-promoting Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. Flag? Or should they just be like the rest of the Socialists-in-training gathered around them and take The (Socialist) Pledge? Should […]
“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 […]
Drag queen performance “horrifies” parents at public school talent show…but not enough to yank their kids from public school, of course.
If you thought that something like a literal drag queen erotic dance performance at a public school talent show would be enough to get parents to yank their kids from public school, you’d be wrong. Oh, but don’t worry, the parents in question were “horrified”. They were “outraged”. Like they always are when they hear about […]
Howdy All, The first clip recorded for our new video channel is up and running. You can check it out by clicking on the play button in the embedded player below: If the embedded player doesn’t work for you, you can click here to access the video. From here on out, we plan to share the audio portions […]
It. Is. ON! The third annual Great Education Forum is this weekend at the New Geneva Christian Leadership Academy in Appomattox, Virginia, where I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to make the event’s first presentation. My subject: The Satanic Foundation Of Public Schools (with a focus on Genesis 3). Please pray that this mission will be […]
Dinosaur media empires are dying. Dinosaur business empires are dying. Dinosaur political empires are dying. But perhaps the most exciting (and important) news on the dino front is that dinosaur models of education are dying, too. By God’s grace and right in the nick o’ time, an age of radical decentralization is beginning to dawn all around us, and while […]
Jesus Christ is the essential core of children’s education…or He is not. There is no “middle ground” or third option where essential cores are concerned. Either they are essential and core, or they are not. Either Christ is the essential core of the pursuit of knowledge (also known as “education”) where the formation of young, […]
When God ordained and defined the realms of self government, family government, church government and civil government, He wasn’t playing around. He was serious. Lovingly serious, as always. God created and has sufficiently revealed the roles, responsibilities and limitations of each of these spheres of governmental influence so that we might know how things work in His […]
So what’s a typical American response to news that a high school girl was filmed having sex with 24-ish high school football players in a high school bathroom? “I trust [the school district] to take care of it.” and “I really do think that that is their job and they will take care of it.” It’s “their job”. It’s […]
“Can We Please Stop Rearranging Deckchairs On the Public School Titanic?” – The Hell Razer Report Podcast
Do we want disciples of the State or disciples of Christ? Pick one. Choose this day whom you will serve…and to whom you will give over your children for mind-sculpting and worldview training. In this week’s episode of The Hell Razer Report we take a look at a popular saying regularly used by lazy American professing […]
Will Obama’s decree of open toilet education finally wake up Christian parents and inspire an exodus from public schools?
Here we are again: President Obama, serving quite effectively in his role as one of the more glaring judgments of God upon America, has decreed from the lofty heights of Washington that all American public schools are to embrace and enforce “open toilet education”. For those of you who’ve not yet heard the glorious news from on high […]
Things seem to be getting wackier by the minute ’round here these days in ‘Merica, and while that might sometimes seem scary, what we need to see and appreciate in this increasingly surreal time is the incredible clarity that we are being given as the bubble world fiction in which American Christians have lived for […]
One of the telltale marks of a sucker is their propensity for easy distraction. Can we be easily manipulated? Are we emotion driven? Are we disinterested in detail or consistency? Are we happy and content to be spoon fed and led along by the nose? In other words, can we be easily directed toward the things a predator wants us to see and away […]
What if Ted Cruz’s most vocal, passionate, all-in supporters took any 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-, 9-, or 10-year old children that they currently ship off to Temples of the State for “education” and yanked ’em out of that thoroughly satanic system? What if just half of them did so? What if just half of the […]
A true Christian education and worldview centers on the fact that good things are happening and ultimate victory is assured. It assumes and builds itself upon on the inevitable victory of the King of Creation over every realm of His creation in accordance with His unstoppable, unbreakable Word and Gospel-fueled Great Commission. It’s in this context that even […]
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in […]
How the religion of American Statism will use the religion of Islam to attack Christian home education.
If there’s one thing a false god can’t stand, it’s competition. In this, false gods predictably aim to be something like one true God they strive to displace. The one true God despises these pretenders and would-be competitors, knowing that they can only lead those who follow them into darkness and death, which is why He has […]
Last week in Yes Charlie Brown, there is a satanic worldview…and it’s the foundation of American public schools, we covered a Kentucky elementary school’s omission of a particularly Christian portion of its production of A Charlie Brown Christmas and how local parents responded with the typical “shock”, “horror”, and “outrage” that we’ve all come to expect for decades now from […]
If there’s one thing most “American Christians” will not tolerate, it’s the removal of Christian sprinkles from their otherwise anti-Christian worldviews and practices. Among the most glaring and impactful of these thoroughly anti-Christian practices is the willingness (and often eagerness) of professing Christians to ship off their little five-, six-, and seven-year-olds to State-run “education” systems in which […]
Do you have two hours a day to focus on your children? If so, you can homeschool. That was the short and very sweet point made by a kind Christian woman who called into Stand Up for the Truth on Monday where I was the guest on that day’s show. The subject of the broadcast was children’s […]
How does the Gospel define children’s education? (Radio interview on the “Stand Up for the Truth” program.)
I’m quite happy and thankful to report that I had an awesome, cool, and productive time with the crew at Stand Up for the Truth on Monday’s show, where the topic of the day was…*drumroll*…children’s education from a Gospel-centered perspective. Woohoo! I was on for about the first 45 minutes or so and man, did we get […]
I love public school kids. Teachers, too. Some of my favorite memories and most cherished relationships were born in an American public school setting. Most reading this post can probably relate to that sentiment. While we can and should be thankful for the many good and beautiful things that God allows us to experience in any […]
Last week in America’s Fear and Loathing of Christian Homeschoolers, we highlighted an article by American Vision’s Dr. Joel McDurmon in which he methodically chronicled the lies driving a ridiculously contrived “case” against a homeschooling family in Texas. McDurmon has recently followed up with a very important article alerting homeschoolers as to some serious freedom-threatening maneuvers being […]
Just in case anyone out there had forgotten how much this culture and its most thoroughly programmed drones despise the concept and practice of Christian homeschooling, the Lord has graciously provided us with yet another reminder. This time it comes in the form of a Texas homeschooling family who is being savaged by everyone […]
The On Education: Thoughts on Christ as the essential core of children’s education book is now available in print and eBook/Kindle formats. This is a compilation book featuring articles from Fire Breathing Christian that center on the vital life- and culture-shaping subject of children’s education. One of the great benefits of this sort of book is that […]
We’re “educated” from toddlerhood in America to keep The Sword of Truth “in its place” (if we must have one at all), which is, as we are reminded again and again and again: In its sheath and safely stored away at home. Or at church. Or in a prayer closet. Or in our precious, sweet little heart. Or whatever…you […]
So what if our children are taught that all religions are to be respected equally? So what if our children are taught as much about Islam as they are about Christianity…and all from a supposedly “neutral perspective” (in stark contrast to a biblical perspective)? So what if our children are taught to presuppose no absolute […]
I remember sitting in my living room with a group of men about a year and a half ago. We are chilling out together, doing a Bible study, and having good conversation. As the conversation rolled on a bit, it got a bit more serious – serious in a good way for the most part, […]
Some of my favorite people have been public school teachers. Some of my favorite people are public school teachers. Some of my favorite people are Christians who are teaching or have taught in American public schools. As a product/victim of American State-run worldview programming myself, I have much to be thankful for. High on the list is God’s perfect, purposeful use […]
What are professing Christians who work for the State-run “education” system supposed to do? How are they supposed to teach? How are they to supposed to present truth? How are they supposed to define and share knowledge? What approach the pursuit of knowledge are they supposed to model for their students? How are they commanded […]
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 […]
These days in America, it’s often professing Christians who seem to least believe that Christ the King actually owns and defines all of reality (see: Colossians 1:16). After generations of immersion in a man-centered, emotion-driven, and culturally disengaged religious worldview masquerading as Christianity, we’ve largely come to expect the victory of Christ’s enemies all around us here on His […]
“Christian leaders” STILL encourage Christians to keep feeding their children to the beast of anti-Christian/State-run “education”.
There comes a point at which the warm handshakes, friendly smiles, and killer pot-lucks just can’t cover things up anymore. There comes a point at which even the most naïve and immature Christian begins to sense through the Spirit of God within them that something is way off. Something isn’t right. Something stinks. For year after year, […]
On Friday, millions upon millions of American “Christians” were outraged – outraged, I tell you! – at the “Supreme Court” vote in favor of “gay marriage” as the “law” of the land. Then on Monday many of these very same outraged Christian conservatives freely shipped the delicate, impressionable little boys and girls that God has […]
Southern Baptists flip out over “gay marriage”, but are okay with government-run children’s “education”.
There’s something bizarre about watching someone try to kill a hornet with a nuclear strike while simultaneously protecting the hornet’s nest from which it came, but that’s pretty much what we’re witnessing now from many “Christian leaders” who seem to take every opportunity to express outrage and even threaten civil disobedience over the looming Supreme Court pronouncement on […]
One of the least surprising things in all of God’s creation seems to be the thing that’s most surprising to the vast majority of “American conservative Christians” who simply cannot believe how fast the culture is melting down around them, particularly in the realm of sexuality. But really, what could be more predictable than the sexual, […]
State-run schools teach sexual perversion (again). “Christians” pretend to be “shocked” and “horrified” (again)…and keep right on feeding their children to the beast.
So according to a report published late last week, some “shocked” American parents are “furious” about their government run school’s plan to teach kids about stuff like “gender fluidity” and “the gender spectrum”. To which one might be rightly compelled by concern and true love for these folks and their children to respond: What did you expect?! I […]
Why Statists despise Christian homeschooling (and why Christians shouldn’t feed their children to the State).
By now many of us have heard at least part of the unfolding tale of the Nauglers, a family of 12 in southwestern Kentucky who choose to live an “off the grid” lifestyle of simplicity that includes, among other things, a family Facebook page (kinda funny, right?). One of many articles chronicling the recent arrest of the […]
If there’s one thing we know, it’s that America is awesome! If there’s another thing that we know, it’s that we must place the American State above and beyond any serious challenge. The American State is the hope of the world. The American State cannot be allowed to falter. The American State must prevail…and, by the […]
Last week we covered the new move to support “Transgender” Girl(?) Scouts in, of all places, Utah, so this week it should come as little surprise to anyone with half a clue that we’re now able to confirm…Transgender-friendly Kindergarten! Woohoo! Isn’t tolerance awesome?! Isn’t Christ-dismissing “education” sweet?! And isn’t it great that professing Christians have […]
The definition of success, the purpose of education, and how we’ve completely blown it on both counts.
A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to chat with a couple of very nice “education advocates”. Here in Tennessee, momentum has been building against Common Core’s use in State-controlled education systems. As part of a push from the pro-CC side, lobbyists and activists of all sorts and stripes have been dispatched to convince […]
This is an inverse of the last cartoon, Devil’s Ed. 101. After thinking about that one a bit more, it seemed like a good idea to go back to show the proper order in which the Satanic approach to the pursuit of knowledge was first spoken and then emulated…by us…right up to today. For a […]
For a more comprehensive, detailed biblical presentation on this important subject, please read Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge. If you know of anyone who might appreciate this post, please share it. If you’d like to help support the Fire Breathing Christian mission, please click here. Please also “like” us on […]
In light of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission of Jesus Christ (see: Matthew 28), the present condition of the American culture can be rightly described as a “report card” for the professing Christian church in America. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore […]
So there I was, sitting through the second of two similar Tennessee State House hearings on the subject of education, in which Marc Tucker addressed two different Education Committees, when it hit me (again). The “it” in question was this: We apparently have no idea as to what education is, much less what a […]
Remember when you could actually own a home in America? The answer is: No, you do not. Even if you think that something like true home ownership was recently or is presently allowed here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA, you are simply wrong. As with most of the […]
In the wake of her successful campaign for Tennessee’s “Yes on 1” (see pic above) and with our beloved Rosebud about to turn two this coming spring, we knew that it was time. Bible memorization and catechism time. Rosie’s shown a lot of promise on the linguistic front as we’ve ramped up to this moment. She’s counting […]
Last year, in the first few months of (near) daily posting at the Fire Breathing Christian blog, I wrote several articles on the subject of children’s education. Three of those posts were constructed around notes I’d made for a sermon that I’ve since been blessed to share with many Brothers and Sisters who are struggling mightily by the […]
Here in 2015 America, there is little doubt that we are being blessed by God with a return by more and more of His people to the loving detail of His Word when it comes to the vital, culture-shaping subject of children’s education. Let’s not lose sight of this beautiful truth. Let’s celebrate it and thank God […]
Evidence of the evils of State-controlled children’s education continues to multiply, amplify and explode all around us, but in a culture still loaded with minds molded on State-run assembly lines, those evils are typically dismissed, ignored, or even spun into virtues. This is the climate into which God has placed His people. Even now in America, […]
What would you think if someone at your church was to suggest that a group of Deacons or Elders take on a mission to go and observe normal business activities for a few hours each and every week at a local strip club as part of a mission to “be salt and light” to the strippers and strip club patrons? […]
Ah, State-controlled children’s “education”. Is there anything more warmly regarded by the typical American? Right outta the Communist Manifesto, yet adored and defended by most professing conservatives in America. Built plainly upon the satanic approach to the pursuit of knowledge, yet adored and defended by most professing Christians in America. Talk about a gigantic, disgusting, yet very much cherished […]
What if Scripture – what we call “the Bible” – was infinitely more than anything else ever written or read, because it was an actual and accurate revelation of God’s very nature? Of who He is? What if this literary revelation had been lovingly provided by God to His people for the sake of ensuring that they enjoy the […]
What if Satan was not only real, but had a particular perspective on the pursuit of knowledge (aka “education”)? What if his approach to education – particularly children’s education – after purposefully slithering its way into the Christian sub-culture, was able to grow and grow in influence to the point that, many generations after its initial infection, […]
What if God was not only real, but had lovingly provided us with the information and understanding by which we might tackle every important subject and challenge that could come our way? What if He, in His infinite wisdom and matchless grace, had given us such detail as to the nature of every realm of human experience, culture, and […]
Ever wonder why, no matter how many gajillions of dollars we spend, how many studies we undertake, or how many reforms we make to address the subject of children’s education in America, we only seem to be able to continue the steady decline in knowledge, understanding, and character from one generation to the next? If you have […]
