I will probably get dropped from Facebook for this article, it is ‘politically incorrect’.
I remember growing up in Wyoming during World War Two when people were proud to be American and my older cousins and friends were not afraid to prove it with their lives. Most of them served in the armed forces and some gave their lives for this country and the ideals it stood for.
Although many did not go to Church regularly, all would confess that we were a Christian nation and they were proud of our flag. It was not a foreign action to put your hand over your heart when saying the Pledge of Allegiance or singing God Bless America and prayer to Almighty God was honored in public.
In the 60 some years since that time, we have changed. Our Christian heritage is now a thing to be ignored and ashamed of. In the 60’s prayer was outlawed from schools and God was shoved out of the public square. The age of Political Correctness was upon us. This was an age of rebellion against God and all He stands for. But, it is not hidden, God saw it!
“The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.” – Ps. 14:2,3
The religion of Humanism (It was declared by the Supreme Court to be a religion.) has taken over the public school system. John Dewey, the father of American Teacher’s Colleges spent 2 years in communist Russia studying before beginning to found America’s teachers colleges. Ever since then America’s public schools have been influenced by teachers trained under this philosophy. It is no wonder that so many of America’s colleges are corrupted with ‘leftist’ ideals! These same colleges train many of those who have become America’s leaders, political, economic, and religious. It only took Obama 8 years to infect Washington DC with the corruption we now call ‘the swamp’ so how pervasive do you think the ‘swamp’ of America has become in the 60 years since John Dewey?
American schools use the mantra “separation of Church and State” to kick God out of their influence but, they are ripe with humanism, which is a religion itself! Americans have opened themselves to the spirit of Antichrist as Paul predicted so long ago.
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:9-12
What is this ‘strong delusion‘? It is that America can be great without God! What is the ‘unrighteous deception’ Paul speaks about? Satan knows man was created by God and for God. He knows man will always seek a God. That is what humanism is – man is god. When that doesn’t work, man will look for another god; satanism, or perhaps Islam. That is what is happening right now the occult is growing in America and Islam is growing as well. The occult has always been linked to illicit sex and America is now the number one nation for kidnapping children for sex. It pervades our leadership even, with President Clinton being involved. But, the move towards Islam isn’t far behind and they have now targeted the American schools to spread their influence.
Schools all over America are teaching children to take Islamic names, pray to Allah, and wear Islamic clothing and yet if a child refers to God or Jesus they are reprimanded.
What is the answer to this attack by Satan on our schools, our culture, indeed on our nation? It is for the true Church of Jesus Christ to repent and turn back to the God of the Bible. We need to remember what David wrote –
“LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart; He who does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend; In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the LORD; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change; He who does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.” – Psalm 15
Those who name the name of Christian need to start living as if it is true. We need to actively get involved in our schools and if we cannot change them to pull our children out of them. We need to get active politically and vote for those leaders who believe what the Bible teaches and who will not surrender our Christian culture to those who have another agenda. We need to get into a church that teaches and believes the Bible, all of it! And we need to pray to God for His help to recover this nation from the attack it is under.
