How many kids' lives have been ruined because of the school system? A lot more than you can count. The reason: Because the government has its hands in the educational system. But you know what? They have no right whatsoever. Did you hear me? NONE WHATSOEVER! People pay hundreds of dollars in taxes to the government, the government then uses billions of that money to pay teachers in public schools, pay for buildings, repairs, etc. Then because they supply all the money, they also supply the literature, and everything that will go into the kids' heads. In other words, the government controls the kids. How scary is that? The kids are "brainwashed". However, the kids have no choice--but the parents do. Whatever they learn in school will shape them into whatever kind of men and women they will be.
Also, going to church for an hour a week will not "overrule" whatever they learn in school for 8 hours. No way, whatsoever can that ever happen.
Parents are needed to take a stand in today's world. We need people who will say "NO!" to the government, and "YES!" to God.
Right now, the government has control of the kids in America. They have them 5 days a week for about 8 hours a day. Talk about major control. Nevertheless, that could be changed, if we would take a stand. The government doesn't even have any business in the educational system! The States should individually decide what is right, leastways according to the Bible, what God has commanded, and that is to raise godly children "in the nurture and admonition of the LORD."
I am so thankful I have parents who have taken a stand, and therefore, my life, and the lives of my siblings, will not be ruined by the government in "their" schools, and "their" curriculum. (I could go into their "curriculum, but that is another subject.) I have been homeschooled all my life and I can truly say, "Homeschooled and PROUD OF IT!".
The kids in America are turning out to be wicked, rebellious "teenagers" and yet everybody wonders why. I can tell you the reason--it's because, instead of letting God control them, the government controls them and the kids' lives are shaped by people who have no business shaping them. We are in a mess. After God, the Bible, prayer, and the Ten Commandments were kicked out of schools, everything in the school system started declining...declining...until we are where we are today.
The schools only teach evolution. They don't even give the kids the "other side of the story." But really, there is only one Story, the true story of special creation and Jesus Christ's redemptive work on the cross. So they aren't even giving a true story, they are giving a lie! A big fat lie that has gone on since the beginning of time--that man is his "own god", God isn't in control, and man can do whatever he wants. People believe it to because man is "desperately wicked" and "righteous in his own eyes." Man doesn't want an Authority above him; he himself wants to be his own master. Oh what fools we human beings are! I can truly say that because as it says, "the fool hath said in his heart, there is no God." (Psalm 14:1)
We need to let God have full control. After all, He gave man a little bit of His power, though not all. Therefore, we need to stop letting Washington "bully" us around. They don't have full control, only God does. Let us unite and take a stand. A stand for what is right.
