Is it just me, or has anyone notice how morally bankrupt our Nation has become?
The corruption is everywhere: The courthouse, the family, the media and the schools. The family has paid the highest price for the corruption and now the next Generation is born with a bankrupt beginning at life. The courthouse, the media and the public schools are merely a reflection of what the family has grown to be. Once we choose to omit God from our lives, we can only be held accountable for the destructive consequences of that choice.
It was the Baby Boomer’s Generation who ignited the fuel for this train wreck of a society we have today.
In 1962 the U.S. Supreme Court removed God and prayer in public schools. Beginning in 1962, SAT scores plummeted, and teen pregnancies, teen sexual diseases, teen suicides, teen alcohol, drug abuse, pornography and illiteracy rates abruptly increased 200 to 300 percent.
During the same time God and prayer were removed from government schools, the feminist movement was underway and women started claiming their “independence” at the expense of their children. Mortgage rates nearly doubled as divorce rates increased, forcing mothers who desired to be home out into the workplace and away from their children. Traditional family values plummeted and the children were the ones who paid the price for the careless acts of their parents.
Daycare institutions and public schools are readily available to watch children for 8-10 hours a day. So without a second thought, it has been made easy for a mother to relinquish her role and work outside the home.
Before parents blindly hand their children over to strangers, the main questions parents should ask themselves are: Who is responsible for to care for my children? What are my kids learning while they are away from me all day? Will it help them or hinder them? Is it really worth it?
Our government has given us the largest bureaucratic daycare and brain washing system in the world…the public school. A place where children are surrounded by God-hating heathens for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for 12 long years. A place where God is mocked and abolished from all aspects of life, and a place where all Truth is relative while all morality is tossed out the window. The feminist and homosexual agenda is encouraged, promoted and practiced by many teens. Lessons of anti/non-Christian beliefs are endorsed, while “tolerance” and “diversity” are mandated philosophies. Are those the kinds of things you want your kids indoctrinated with?
Parents have ignored God and neglected the responsibility of raising their children for too long. It's time to wake up! Christian parents are commanded to provide a proper education and train their children in the ways of the Lord. If parents choose to delegate their authority to the government, or any other institution, then parents are obligated to be involved with and be aware of what their children being taught.
The main problem is not the school itself; the problem begins in the home. Too many families are broken. Broken families produce broken children, and when you place broken children in a broken system run by a broken government, the results are devastating! Children having children, are addicted to drugs, practice violence, and possess total ignorance and lack of reverence for God. The evidence is overwhelming.
Christians: It’s time to reclaim our role as parents, and take responsibility for our own children! Our children may have a bankrupt beginning, but we can give them a purposeful future.
We only get one chance to raise them ~ We better do it right!
