THE WATCHMAN MUST WARN!
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY?
CHRISTIAN WATCHMEN VOICES
“The universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible...Let the children who are sent to those schools be carefully instructed in principles and obligations of the Christian religion. This is the most essential part of education.”
-Benjamin Rush, One of America’s Founding Fathers
“For more than 220 years---from the 1620’s to the 1840’s---most American schooling was independent of government control, subsidy, and influence. From this educational freedom the American Republic was born.”
-Marshall Fritz, Founder of Alliance for the Separation of School and State
Respected Christian radio broadcaster, Dr. James Dobson told his listeners on March 28, 2002 that he would not place his child in todays public schools that promote anti-biblical teaching and lifestyles. “I wouldn’t put that youngster in the public schools...I think its time to get our kids out.”
-Dr. James C. Dobson, Founder of Focus on the Family
“I believe now is the time for responsible Southern Baptists to develop an exit strategy from the public schools. This strategy would affirm the basic and ultimate responsibility of Christian parents to take charge of the education of their own children.”
-Dr. Albert Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“I am as sure as I am of Christ’s reign that a comprehensive and centralized system of national education, separated from religion, as is now commonly proposed, will prove the most appalling enginery for the propagation of anti-Christian and atheistic unbelief, and of anti-social nihilistic ethics, individual, social and political, which this sin-rent world has ever seen.”
-A.A. Hodge, 19th Century Princeton Theologian
In their book, “Already Gone” authors Ham & Beemer compiled extensive data
that revealed at what ages children from Christian families were detaching from the Christian faith. “Almost 90% of them were lost in middle school and high school”(pg. 31). The authors believe that the Theory of Evolution---that is taught as fact in America’s public schools---is a key ingredient for influencing these young students to leave the Christian faith of their parents.
-Ken Ham, President/CEO & Founder of Answers in Genesis and of the Creation Museum
“Evangelical pastors who advocate sending their Christian youth to public schools are philosophically ‘out to lunch’...they don’t understand the worldview of the secular humanists that’s being taught” in the U.S. public schools.
-Dr. Tim LaHaye, pastor, writer, co-author of the “Left Behind” novel series
“I would say to you, dear friends, it may require some sacrifice, but I urge you to send your children to godly schools...to Christian schools that they might receive a godly education. If you send them off to some public school, keep in mind that you are shooting dice with your children’s eternal soul...Don’t send an 8-year-old out to take on a forty-year-old humanist...I have never seen any more unhappy people than fathers and mothers who have come to me and said, ‘Where did we go wrong? We gave him everything, and now he’s turned his back completely on everything we believe.’ Yes, you gave him everything but a Christian education.”
-Dr. D. James Kennedy, excerpt from “Training Your Children”, church & television minister, author, founder of Truth in Action Ministries
Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’
