More on SB48 - Don't give up your precious kids to the system!

This is a continuation of my previous post regarding the passage of SB48.  I can not stress enough the importance of standing up against this unwanted legislation.  I urge you, if at all possible, to withdraw your child from the public school system.

"The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next." ~Abraham Lincoln

Do you have a child in the government school system?  What are you to do?  School administrators believe that you hand your children over to the government and that you relinquish your rights as a parent the second your children darken the school door.  People have been imprisoned for defying this.  There is nothing you can do about what is fed into the mind of your precious child once they are on school grounds.  Your child is being brainwashed to think that there is no truth, no good or evil, no morality.  A generation hypnotized into this kind of thinking will destroy themselves.  We reap what we sow.  Forget the threat of terrorist attacks and economic devastation - we'll implode morally by becoming apathetic and totally lacking in ideals and standards.

We are losing our freedoms: chief is the ability to raise our children according to what we (not the government) believe is best.  When we have no say in the curricular content of our children's education, yet are mandated to send our kids to such an institution; freedom is squelched.  We are in bondage to the system...unless we will take great efforts to fight against it.  Thankfully, we are still free to home or privately educate our children.  This is what must be done so we don't end up with a generation hurtling toward bondage.  

I recently wrote about willful ignorance: the idea that just because something is unpleasant, we intentionally refuse to acknowledge or do anything about it, falsely thinking it will just go away.  Well, this (SB48) is a prime example.  We may ignore SB48 while in the house, then the senate, then on the governor's desk.  Now, it is too late...and it affects you.  This destructive, immoral, worthless curriculum will be forced upon your child...and other than pulling them out of the public school system, there is nothing that can be done about it.  Are you willing to hand your child (whom God has made you a steward of) to an atheistic, anti-God, anti-moral, socialist, government-indoctrinated education system?  We are accountable to God for the things He has made us responsible for.  What will you say to Him when asked what you did with the impressionable mind and heart placed solely in your hands?  He chose you.  He didn't choose the school teacher you barely know who spends more time per week with your child than you do.

I know this sounds harsh and perhaps it is.  I'm not sure how to communicate the urgency of the situation without being unapologetically honest.  We can't throw up our hands and give our children up!!!  We can not quit!

I understand that not everyone can home school...but perhaps it isn't as difficult as you may think.  The great thing about home schooling is that it is an incredibly flexible option.  Even if you work, you can educate your child.  
What's the cost?  

What's the cost if you give your child up to the government system?  
-Peer influence (=foolishness).  
-Twisted & untrue history.  
-A child that follows culture rather than righteousness.  
-Immoral brainwashing.  
-The possible loss of their eternal soul (as a result of worldly immersion and failing to counter it at home).  

In addition, your child will be better educated at home than in the school system.  I know home schooling is difficult for some.  Isn't your child's future worth tightening the financial belt of your household (by having one parent stay home or work only part-time; and living within your means)?  I know it is hard to find your niche in the education of your own child, but the resources are limitless and the approach that fits your family is totally attainable.  A few stumbles along the way shouldn't hinder us.  Try something different.  There is a way.  And there is a community of homeschool-minded people who are anxious to help, counsel, and guide.  (Visit

So, what's my problem?  Why do I care?  Why should this bother me as a homeschooling mom whose children will never (God-willing) be under the influence of the government indoctrination system?

Here is my concern:  Even though I am making painstaking efforts to raise godly men.  The overwhelming amount of peers surrounding them do not share their upbringing and are, in reality, being educated in opposition to their own worldview (even if their parents are moral or Christian).  [I do want to recognize that many public-schooled children turn out absolutely fantastic - thanks to the committed involvement of loving, godly parents and this fact: "Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world."]  Yes, we are in the world and not of it; but I want freedom for my kids.  What kind of a future are we ensuring for the next generation if we are making the special treatment of homosexuals a priority over actual academics (among other worthwhile things)?  We are teaching our children that pleasure matters more than self-control.  We are telling our children that God is not the author of life which in effect devalues life - resulting in abortion, suicide, euthanasia, ridiculously low personal expectations, and an animalistic perception of ourselves.  And don't we see this?  ---since so much of culture literally acts according to their ever changing desires instead of engaging their incredibly capable decision-making mind to practice wisdom and self-control.  We are not monkeys.  We are not animals.  We were created to reason.  We were created to do good works.  We were created in the very image of GOD HIMSELF.  But we choose to debase ourselves for the sake of doing "what we want." 

I know this can be utterly infuriating, but please remember that LGBT people are so dearly beloved by the same God who loves you and me.  Love the sinner, hate the sin.  Offer a heart of love to these people in your life.  Not all of them are agenda-driven activists, and those that are are "in the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will." (2 Tim 2:23-26)  It is a battle "not against flesh and blood but against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places."  Our greatest hope is prayer.  

Father, thank You for this great nation.
We are concerned about so much and discouraged over the
victories in favor of wickedness and to the harm of our children.
But You are absolutely sovereign.  You are not surprised.
You will have Your perfect will done.  Please deliver these
who are so deceived by the enemy of our souls.
Deliver them into eternal salvation in Your presence.
Freedom from their lifestyle of bondage and darkness.
Give us such tender hearts of love for these.
Help us to love not just in word only but in deed and in truth
...not letting politics or morality or self-righteousness reign,
but only genuine concern and passion for their hearts.
Bless these, our brothers and sisters in the human race,
who even though they do not know You
are created in Your beautiful image.
May we always perceive them through Jesus-colored glasses.
