“What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ.” -George Washington
“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:6)
Who is responsible for education?
While searching online for an appropriate Link of the Day for yesterday’s devotional about reflection, I came across an excellent blog called “Save Our Constitution.” Here are a few excerpts:
America is under attack–not just from terrorists, but from Socialists, Communists, Liberals, Humanists and other misguided Utopians and world government supporters… America is in danger. There was a time when the Constitution defined our nation, but today through loopholes, immoral misinterpretation, judicial activism, citizen ignorance and pure legal fabrication the Constitution is being TRAMPLED ON. This great document resides in the National Archives in a dimly lit room, under bulletproof glass, in a case filled with pressurized helium. If only the principles it stands for were so protected!
Education, both religious and secular, is first and foremost the responsibility of parents. In a time of compulsory education laws and socialist state-sponsored humanist instruction, this truth is largely forgotten. Some good friends of mine have made the difficult decision to home school their children. They sometimes feel that they aren’t included as full members of the community because they are “different,” but I admire their courage. For them, home school is a marvelous opportunity to teach their children in an environment of love and faith. While home school may not be the best option for every family, it certainly ensures that children will be educated according to the beliefs and traditions of parents, not the beliefs and traditions of the State.
It is impossible to truly understand the miracle that created the United States of America without first understanding that God was the author of it. Trying to explain the history of America without discussing divine guidance is like trying to explain the purpose of the interstate highway system without talking about cars. Since God cannot be discussed in our places of learning, our public schools have utterly failed to teach children about their American heritage and the faith of the founders that won the Revolutionary War.
“Posterity, which will reap the blessings, will scarcely begin to know of our sufferings.” -Abigail Adams
The founders sacrificed much, some of them everything, for the freedoms we enjoy today. Revisionist historians who view the actions of the founders through the warped lens of modernity are often less interested in truth than in sensationalizing the weaknesses and frailties of men and women whom they ought to revere. The posterity that has been blessed by the courage and prayers of their forebears may not be able to fully understand the struggles of their ancestors, but parents can teach their children the story of America. The real America is not defined by openness and tolerance, diversity, multi-culturalism and godlessness. Rather, it is defined by religion, principle, morality and character. If parents fail to teach their children the importance of the American Revolution and the character and strength of the founders, their children will lack the understanding and motivation to resist the losses of freedom that will inevitably continue. Every child should know what America stands for and be prepared to defend this nation and its founders at a moment’s notice.
Heavenly Father, thank You for all the homeschoolers in our nation and the parents who have made the choice to put the education of their own children ahead of other things in this world. Bless them Lord. Use these young people to raise up a high standard for faith, family, and freedom in America. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
