As you remember, first in the 1960’s new textbooks were released, re-emphasizing evolution over creation. Second, also in the 60s, the Supreme Court removed prayer and Bible reading from the schools. Why then should our children be expected to behave well when they are taught that they are no higher than the animals, and the absolutes of the Scriptures don’t matter?
Then came the era of parents wanting to be their children’s “best friend,” offering little in the way of discipline or guidance. Along with that, thanks to the magic of the internet, video games and TV our youth are constantly bombarded with sex, gruesome violence and death, drugs and confusing social issues and values.
What caused this drastic change in values? How could it have happened so seemingly fast? God’s absolute truths have been denied. Now, this way of thinking has been embraced by schools, corporations, community organizations, mainstream churches, social and political groups throughout America. As the children go, so will the future of our nation.
What Are They Learning?
Throughout grades K-12 Common Core teaching claims to ensure that all children are equally prepared as they advance to the next level by dictating what exactly students in kindergarten through 12th grade should know in arts, language, and math by the time they complete each grade. The “one size fits all” learning model seeks to turn children into anonymous automatons. It is truly the dumbing down of our children.
The school isn’t teaching children how to think, but rather what to think.
Now, starting in kindergarten the children are indoctrinated with gender ideology. This is a necessity for the good of the children states Pamela M. Malins from the University of Western Ontario:
“Heterosexism and misogyny remain pervasive in North American society, and education has the potential to provide young children opportunities to make meaning differently and cultivate a more respectful and open-minded society, beginning with the intended curriculum... Children are active in the construction of their gender and sexual identities, and are a part of, or are surrounded by, diverse families or are questioning personal identities. In a multicultural and multimodal society, diverse identities cannot be ignored or avoided. Young children deserve, and have a right to, an education that includes and embraces all identity options and all families.”
Also from a report by Michael McCaffrey, writer for RT.com in the wake of the George Floyd riots his kindergartener is now being subjected to learning about Critical Race Theory and is being taught by their “woke” teachers how to be an activist. “This isn’t education—this is blatant indoctrination,” McCaffrey states.
College: Would You Like French Fries With Your Order?
By the time students get to college there may be little resistance left to the world’s influences. Along with the programming they’ve already received, suddenly they’re free from the lessons and constraints of their parents. They’re also surrounded by dorm mates of different faiths or no faith at all. Oftentimes the culture of college life encourages a hedonistic free-for-all. God is all but forgotten. They become a part of the growing trend of saying goodbye to their faith. With this the liberal left cements in our young adults the liberal left programming that occurs in most colleges. Let’s make good little world citizens of them.
From the time they are youngest and most impressionable, our children are not being taught to think critically and understand why they believe what they do. They just need to have the right viewpoint and force others to conform like they’ve been forced to conform. They engage in arguments where the loudest voice wins because no one’s points are better than another. They pressure, instead of persuade.
Fast Forward to Now
Now, between the riots and social upheaval, as well as the social distancing and quarantining because of the pandemic, people and especially our youth are being programmed to adapt to “continual change” and “group think.” They are being taught government mandates and control, and to follow with no question. Make no mistake that this is allout trauma-based mind control. It is the kind of programming never forgotten and will have a life long impact.
The slow creeping in of the corruption of our children has opened to full-throttle brainwashing. Parents, grandparents, family and friends must retake charge of children’s moral and ethical education, not some high-minded “woke” teacher. The Bible places a high value upon knowledge, both of God and of His Works. It describes the moral and spiritual fruits of this knowledge and defines its ultimate purpose. We must set out to create a foundation in our children that when they are old, they will not depart from it. Minister to them about the love and promises of God. Introduce them to their Lord and Saviour as their best friend and confidant.
The future of this country and more—the very future of the souls of our precious young rely on you dear believer.
