Psalms 25:4-5 – “Make me know Thy ways, O LORD; Teach me Thy paths. 5 Lead me in Thy truth and teach me, For Thou art the God of my salvation; For Thee I wait all the day.” NASB
I am repeating a prophetic word that I gave in Chandler, Texas on March 11, 1984, and asking you to examine it and see if I was right and if it still resonates today. I ask that you reread the first blog post and then read this offering. This is Part Two of that Word.
CURRICULUM CHANGES and AIMS
We have been inundated with the ‘Values Clarification Courses’ in our schools. The motive and purpose are to indoctrinate the young to reject the moral absolutes of the Bible. I offer this fact for your consideration:
A Carter Administration Educrat, during a discussion funding for government-controlled preschool day-care centers, made an astonishingly revealing statement. He said: “One of the reasons we need to establish preschool day-care centers for children from three years of age and up is because in spite of the billions of dollars at our disposal and the thirteen years we have the children in our public schools, we are still unable to undo the harm done to them before they arrive in kindergarten.”
The Harm? What he expressed was their view that the harm being done was that the children were being taught to believe in God, have an absolute value system, and respect authority, including their parents. How does that make you feel about the government and public education?
In 1984, the Federally-funded U.S. Office of Education offered the following materials to help educators function as ‘change agents.’ That’s right CHANGE AGENTS! The offerings are ED 056-345: Humanism – The Counselor’s Role as a Change Agent. ED058-664 – Change Agent Teams Changing Schools: Case Studies. ED054-513 – Emotional Arousal and Attitude Change During Simulation Games. That is a clear threat to everything biblical and godly and a clear attack on the home, biblical values, and morality. It is a plan to brainwash our children. How does that make you feel about the government and public education?
Additionally, in a document titled: Report to the President’s Commission on School Finance, the concern expressed was that the majority of our youth hold the same values as their parents and that pattern, according to them, MUST BE CHANGED! Wow!
In August 1973, the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare awarded $5,900,000 to 21 institutions to train 500 educational personnel to become leaders of educational change.
Among the subjects taught in school one incredibly disturbing one was found in a Sociology textbook which explained “Situation Ethics” in this manner: “There are exceptions to moral laws, depending on the situation. What is wrong in one instance may be right in another. Most children learn that it is wrong to lie. But later they may learn that it is tactless, if not actually wrong, not to lie under certain circumstances.” So much for the Bible’s version of “Thou Shalt Not Lie.”
I want to delve into this prophetic word a bit more and hope that I do not bore you with the details I give but it was heavy on my heart in 1984 and has expanded exponentially today in 2019. What was happening as a trickle then is a flood today!
God bless you as you go through this day in His Presence!
