Throughout history power has been obtained over the large masses of people by removing the Bible. Emperors of Rome did it! Popes did it! Murderous Conquerors and Rulers did it!
|America is keeping the Truth out of School!|
The problem is a question of knowledge of truth and absolute authority, not civil obedience and honoring governing leaders. The person that gets to define truth and absolute authority has controlling power. If people are allowed to read God's Word for themselves they discover truth, and question whether ultimate authority rests with government leadership or Scriptures.
Wycliffe stated, "We ought to believe in the authority of no man unless he say the Word of God. It is impossible if any word or deed of man should be of equal authority of the Holy Scripture." We certainly don't believe this today! If we desire to be a Nation of Christian values we must protect our liberty in civil arenas, we can't just sit on our pews in church.
Is it any wonder today, 60 years after the Bible has been removed from American education schooling that no one can be absolute about anything that is taught in schools?!? Apart from God there is no truth! We foolishly have allowed the Judaical Branch of our USA government to turn our public schools into institutions of chaos that are amoral, even violent. Without a Biblical God Worldview, our country and western civilization will be destroyed.
I am not advocating evangelism, preaching, trying to get people to say a Jesus prayer in American public schools. No one can or even should pathetically try to force anyone to accept Jesus as their Lord. Everyone must decide for himself if he chooses to be a follower, disciple, of Jesus. Frankly, the only way to become a follower is by free will choice. But everyone should hear truth, know right from wrong, and be taught that there are absolute truths. The Bible, the Book of Truth, must be returned and placed into the hands of all Americans.
The textbooks filled with Bible verses used for over 200 years in the Americas, even prior to becoming a Nation, are what build up the minds and hearts of Americans! The moral decline, the school chaos, the acceptance of abortion, the break up of families, the economic destruction of our great Nation can be directly linked to the removal of Biblical truth text from public schools.
To hide Truth from American students in public schools is to be like the Papal state of Rome that would burn Bibles in English or German and not allow the public access to the Bible because they wanted to be empowered by keeping people in the dark. This mindset ushered in the dark ages! They did not want anyone to question their authority. They did not want people to know God had absolute authority, answers, help for everything they needed for life because they wanted people to live totally dependent on government!
In the 1960's Truth was removed from Education.
- 1962 Engel v. Vitale case in which the Court first negated school prayer (“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our Country”).
- Abington School District v. Schempp, the lawsuit reached the Supreme Court of the United States in 1963. The Court voted 8-1 in Murray's favor, which effectively banned coercive prayer and Bible verse recitation at public schools in the United States. (Madalyn Murray O'Hair claimed that her son was bullied when he refused to partake in Bible reading in class.)
Let us look at a quote from Thomas Jefferson:
"The reason Christianity is the best friend of government is because Christianity is the only religion in the world that deals with the heart."
Therefore, it is with this mindset (of Dewey) and the Supreme Court laws of 1962 and 1963, that absolute truth was dismissed from American Public School Education!
Schools don't need more money! If we want to see America turn around, to become a Nation of Great Citizens, to be a people who can truly govern themselves, we must have truth read and taught in school!
Why do you think we who even claim to be Christians don't protect Truth?
