We are currently in the northern part of Nevada. It is so hot here we don’t need the water heater turned on to get hot water for showers, washing dishes, etc.
Likewise, our society (including our politicians) are so heated up with their own agenda that we have people fighting and killing each other over all kinds of issues. Okay. Everyone take a deep breath and calm down.
I love American history. I love this country. The Constitution, as it was originally written, inspires me to try harder, to persevere, to love and accept others even when I believe with all my heart that they are wrong. I am a patriot. My husband was in the military during the Viet Nam era and past until December of 1979. My dad fought in WWII. I have cousins and deceased uncles who fought for this country.
When I was growing up we said the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag. We sang songs like “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.” We had prayer in school (until 1963 when one woman single-handedly had it removed). I did not grow up in a Christian home, but I grew up believing in God and country.
Now our kids are being taught that they should be global-minded, with no allegiance to any country. They are being taught that intelligence replaces God (yet we don’t want anyone to feel bad so we will pass them to the next grade whether they have learned anything or not) and there is no such thing as right and wrong. Everything is subjective. Really? Then why do we have laws?
We apparently have learned nothing from history. All of the Communist regimes have fallen. The Socialist agenda keeps the rich in power oppressing the poor. It wipes out the middle class and leaves only the two.
There was a time in this country when people didn’t have to lock their doors at night, or when they left to go to the store. There was a time when our children could walk to school without fear of predators kidnapping them. There was a time when our kids could go play with their friends a few streets away and parents didn’t have to worry. And we think we are better off?
Who decided that our kids should be wards of the state from the time they get on the school bus until they get off of it in the afternoon? Who decided that we should drop all morality and be a “free” society? Who wants to destroy this country? Who is behind the instigation to rebel, to protest and kill people who disagree with you? I’ll tell you. And you will call me a conspiracy theorist, a lunatic, or a crazy writer making up a story. But what I’m going to say here is verifiable if the reader will take the time to do the research.
There is a group in this country called the American Communist Party. Do a Google search. They sound all pious like they want what’s best for this country, yet they want us to lay down and play dead if we are threatened or attacked by North Korea. Maybe they should move to North Korea to enjoy the benefits of a leader who wants war so bad he can taste it. He wants to prove to the world how big, bad and tough he is. And this group wants us to let him send his missiles and we’re supposed to talk him to death. Anyone ever have a lot of luck talking to a bully about backing down and being nice? Right.
There is a group in this country (several actually) who are very well educated and want to rape all of our children. I don’t remember the name of the group but their motto is: “Sex before eight or it’s too late.” This group is made up of educators, doctors, lawyers, scout leaders, etc. http://originaldialogue.blogspot.com/2012/11/sex-before-eight-before-its-too-late.html
Not to mention the schools that teach elementary school children to contact their “spirit guides” or “imaginary best friends” to help them when they can’t handle what’s going on around them.
Again, this all sounds so innocent and healthy. But most ancient peoples did not know God, nor did they want to know their Creator. They wanted their own religion and God allowed them the freedom to choose that path. But without Christ they were lost and doomed to a devil’s hell. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” verse 9 continues: “Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”
I will not add any other links to sites like the one above because I don’t want to influence anyone to delve into this mystical self-centered realm. The “spirit guides” are demons. Personal testimony: been there, done that, no thanks ever again. Coming out of it is scary. Instead, I suggest these novels that show the true nature of demons. They may be novels but the situations portrayed have, to some extent, been part of my personal experience, so I’m not just following someone else’s agenda here. Books are by Frank Peretti: “This Present Darkness”, “Piercing the Darkness”, and “The Oath.” And I was not on any drugs. I’ve never done drugs (other than alcohol in my early twenties).
Some ancient civilizations sacrificed their children to their “gods.” They threw them in the sacrificial fires; drowned them, boiled them, etc. Do you think Satan, the devil, has decided he no longer wants our children? Who do you think leads them down the paths of bright lights, fun, drugs, alcoholism, promiscuity? He has always wanted to destroy them. Read the writings of Karl Marx (The Humanist Manfesto) and Stalin.
I’m not talking about cramming religion down their throats. I’m talking about protecting them from the most formidable enemy known to man. Deuteronomy 6:4-7 says, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: v. 5: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. v. 6: And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: v. 7: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
When we as parents read the Bible WITH our children, let them ask questions and gently explain things to them, they can learn to trust God. When parents model the rules they want their children to live by, the children learn what is acceptable and what is not. When parents don’t have the answers it is perfectly fine to tell the child we don’t know but we will try to find out. Ask a pastor or a friend who also has a close relationship with the Lord. Study the cross references in your Bible to better understand the context of a passage. The world (public education, the media, above mentioned groups, etc.) are already having their influence. It is your choice which influence you allow to have the most influence: you the parent, or everyone else.
