Reason 359: Because Of Your Faith

As you might guess, when I see any article on why children walk away from the faith right at about the same time they finish the 12 years of Secular Humanist indoctrination their parents send them to, I am interested. This article is no different:

God’s Solution to the ‘Nones’ Who Have Left the Faith

A paragraph:

Of this half (more exactly, 49 percent) of “nones” who say they no longer believe, many “mention ‘science’ as the reason they do not believe in religious teachings” while others “reference ‘common sense,’ ‘logic’ or a ‘lack of evidence’ – or simply say they do not believe in God.”

We live in a day when a man will walk into a crowded place, yell Allah Akbar as he’s killing people, and in the aftermath, learned men will stand around and wonder what motivated him to do such a thing. This article is similar. All one has to do is place this paragraph next to what children will be taught in the institution, and the answers should be clear. An image should emerge, especially when parents transfer their authority as guardians and guides over their 6-year-olds, who understand almost nothing about life, to a thoroughly anti-Christ institution. Yet nowhere in this article is public education addressed. Do you want to know what amazes me? It’s God’s grace and mercy in that he allows us to keep 20 percent.

Now for the caveat. Home schooling parents can do lousy jobs of indoctrinating their children into their faith. Also, parents who send their children off to public school can be excellent at teaching their children about God. In the end, not all children who are educated at home keep their parent’s faith. More do, yes, but not all. And sending your young child off to an institution of Secular Humanist indoctrination does not ensure that they will reject your faith. They probably will, but it’s not a given.

I think it’s difficult for us, as adults, to enter the mind of a child, and understand his lack of life experience. 6, or 7, or just 10 years ago she knew zero. She had zero life experience. She was brand new in this world. And then four or five years later she is thrust into a world bent on using her lack of experience to indoctrinate her into Secular Humanism, and then when she grows up in that world the parents are shocked that she has abandoned their faith.

I’m shocked too to tell you the truth. I’m shocked that even one child’s faith survives it. But why take the chance when the stakes are so high? We wouldn’t give anything for the experiences we’ve shared with our children throughout their learning years so far. It has been rich with relationship, fun, and learning. We’ve watched them grow up and learn right before our lives, instead of strangers about whom we’ve known nothing. There is so much more to homeschooling than meets the eye. Please try it and see.

Reason 206: Because There Is A War On Children, And The Institution Is Part Of It

The truth is, even if the institution didn’t want to make war on children, it couldn’t help but do it anyway. It’s just the nature of the beast. It removes children from the family and puts them in a large, fenced-off, impersonal government building. It takes them away from their parents when they are supposed to be with their parents.

This is a great article that speaks to this:

The West’s War on Children

The article goes into the beach-landing environment that is the modern-day womb where most are cut down before reaching shore by abortion and abortifacients. But those who do survive the womb are packed off to the institution and taught that their existence is a blight on an otherwise pristine planet.

It is a worthwhile read. Here is one excerpt:

We currently inhabit a society in which more people die than are allowed to be conceived and survive until birth. Such a society is fundamentally different, including in its child-centrism, from one in which new life is welcomed as part of the natural order. The children who succeed in being born today often are treated as precious items to be protected from all harm, affirmed, and made the center of attention in any reasonably well-off household—at least when that attention is given by professional “caregivers” in government, education, or the childcare industry. What these children are not is part of functioning families and communities, in which they learn how to cooperate, compete, and practice daily virtues. The result? Two generations of people who are too self-centered to enter into lasting marital relationships, choose life, and work to make better lives for themselves and their posterity. From children being the center of our culture we have reached a point where each child sees himself as the center of the world. Why? Because so few of us recognize ourselves as part (though not the center) of an ongoing tradition, an order of existence tying the dead with the living and the yet unborn.

Children are precious. I love them. It breaks my heart to see a war on them. But you can withdraw. You can rescue your child from the front lines.

Reason 174: Because The Institution Is Full Of Dragons

Below is a great article concerning suicides among young women. The author sets up the point of his article by drawing an analogy from Token’s description of dragons in “The Hobbit”.  He then applies that analogy to modern culture and its rejection of morality and a particularly troubling consequence of that rejection, the sharp rise in suicides by young girls.

The article:

Rescuing Our Maidens from the Culture of Death

Just a bit, but please click over and read it in its entirety:

It will come as no surprise to those who know something about dragons to learn that a dragon-culture will devour the innocent in a feeding frenzy of salacious wickedness. We know of the unholy holocaust of abortion, which devours the innocent flesh of babies, but we sometimes overlook the harmful effect on women that the unleashed dragons inflict. This was brought home to me by a recent article in the UK’sTelegraph which highlighted the fact that suicide had become a plague among British women, reaching record levels.

The schoolhouse is lost in a moral swamp. It can’t help your children, and it won’t. It is beholden to Secular Humanism which offers no reason to exist, nor purpose.

Reason 148: Because Think About It, It Makes No Sense If Freedom Matters To You

A free society is an anomaly in the context of history. Man wants to become ruler over his fellow man. He wants to impose his will for lots of reasons. It could be the hope for some Utopian society that he thinks he can bring about. It can be for the gathering of money by gaining the power to fleece his neighbor. It can simply be because he loves power. But the bottom line is, a free society is not a given.

But when one was born into a free society, and has lived in that society in the midst of the prosperity that freedom brings, he can take it for granted. After a few generations he will play fast and loose with his freedoms, and begin to let them be stolen.

Here is an excellent article that explores this line of reasoning from the Christian Post:

Why Not Send Your Kids To The Government Schools? 

He gets right to his point, and mine, in his first paragraph:

I often ask people, “Who in his right mind ever thought it made any sense whatever to entrust to the government the shaping of the minds of the people by whose consent it is supposed to govern?”

Rarely have they entertained that question before, but usually they get the point immediately: Government-run schooling is a sure path, however long or short, straight or winding, to tyranny. Let the government determine curriculum, and ultimately it will determine what citizens think and how they vote.

No wonder Marx and Engels included “free education for all children in public schools” as the capstone of the Ten Planks of their Communist Manifesto.

It is a revelation for some that they themselves have had their thought forms, their narratives, metaphysics and epistemology handed to them by this institution. I know I did, which is why I’ve done everything in my power to keep the state and my children far apart.

Reason 139: Because The Schoolhouse Is A Conduit For A Different Set Of Values Than Yours

Here is an article from Life Site News worth reading. It does a good job of giving insight into why the world if falling apart around us, and why freedoms are going down the drain at an alarming rate:

Dear Christians: It’s no longer enough to work hard, raise a family, and hope to be left alone

Pertinent to this blog is the following excerpt:

Which brings us to our present unpleasant realization that from a cultural perspective, the traditionalists and conservatives have been thoroughly beaten in the war for the culture. For the most part, we never even showed up. We raised families, built farms and businesses, and attended church functions while secular revolutionaries took over the entertainment industry, the media, academia—and finally, the public education system that now dutifully serves as a conduit for secular “values.” Prayer is out, queer theory is in, and many a middle-aged conservative has found occasion recently to splutter his coffee and gape at his newspaper: “How did things change so fast?”

I would say that it is more truthful to say that he is “Spluttering his coffee”, not because of what he sees in the “newspaper”, but rather what he sees his child doing, saying and thinking. The schoolhouse experience will have far more influence on those things than he ever did, unless, of course, he decided to forego that experience altogether.

Reason 118: Because Home Schooled Children Are More Likely To Not Walk Away From Their Faith

So let me see. Is it possible to send my children into the statist indoctrination center and have them come out unscathed? Most certainly. Again, is it possible for me to do my very best to teach my children my faith, even keep them out of the statist indoctrination center, and have them walk away anyway. Why most certainly again. In fact, if you point a revolver at your child’s head and pull the trigger, and it only has five bullets in it, the odds are that your child will be disassociated with his brains. But it certainly isn’t a given. And, even if the gun has only one bullet in it, it doesn’t mean that he’ll be just fine. Such is the world of risks and odds.

But the studies are clear:

Study Finds Homeschoolers Less Likely to Leave Faith Than Public, Private Schooled Student

A recent study has shown that homeschooled kids are less likely to leave their faith than public or private schooled students are.

The article says that “The recently-released findings from an in-depth study of nearly 10,000 young adults show that Millennials who were homeschooled are less likely to leave the faith than individuals who attended private or public schools.”

This is only common sense folks. But here is my opinion as far as it concerns children keeping their faith. If you don’t walk what you talk, it won’t matter how you educate your child. And one great way of not walking what you talk is to think so highly of the state’s ability to provide your child with an education that you’re willing to submit them to 30 hours a week of Secular Humanist indoctrination for 13 or 14 years.

If there is really an eternally lot at stake, your children certainly won’t get that message from those actions.
