Public Schools Try To Appeal To Christians By Teaching The Bible

Time Magazine's recent cover story explains why they believe the bible should be taught in public schools.

And now I'm going to explain why this is a horrible, misguided idea!

I will admit here at the beginning that I have not yet read the article. I don't need to. The article's content is irrelevant. I know from the title of the article alone that what is being proposed in the article is completely wrong.

Here's why.

    1. The education and raising of children is not a responsibility or function of the government

    2. The public school system is rotten at its core and unfixable

    3. The teachers in the public school system are largely NOT members of the Body of Christ and are not able to be trusted to accurately teach our children any subject, much less the subject of God's word

Reason 1 and 2 are not open for debate for those in the Body of Christ. At least, not any rational member of Christ's Body. If education and raising children were the responsibility of the government then God would have at least hinted that it were so. There is abundant evidence that reason 2 is true. If you need some convincing then check out the special 20/20 did on public schools just over a year ago they titled Stupid In America.

Reason 3 is more like 2b, so there are basicly two main reasons why its wrong to teach the bible in public schools. They shouldn't exist in the first place and the teachers unions [i.e. NEA] and bureacuracies make it rotten at its core.

Addressing 3 or 2b specificly, one of the worst things you could ever say about a public school is that it has some "Christian teachers" in it. Telling people this (specificly parents) is harmful because it gives them a false sense of security that the presence of a few Christian teachers will somehow offset the officially amoral, anti-Christ, naturalistic and humanistic public school curriculum that they are fed by largely pagan, ahteist/agnostic and humanist public school teachers.

These are the people you will have teaching the bible to the kids in public school!

Think about this for a minute - Why do you believe the leftist media such as Time Magazine are promoting teaching the bible in public schools? Do you actually think its for the good of the stuidents? Are you that naive that you think this push is being made for the benefit of the children? And do you believe that these pagan teachers will honor God's word and treat it with respect!?

No, that's not why they are promoting teaching the bible in public schools. The obvious reason why they are advocating teaching the bible in public schools is for the purpose of attracting church-going families so they will give their children to the officially Godless government school system instead of homeschooling them or sending them to a private school where they will be given a Christian education. So that these parents will have one more reason to let the public school curriculum and their child's peers influence their children's thinking for 8 hours a day, 180 days a year.

The public schools are losing children and each child lost means money lost!

They want more money for their school and for their paycheck. They don't care about whether your children are taught to live and think like Christ-less pagans. That these children graduate high school thinking like Christ-less pagans is of no concern to most of them. It should be no surprise to anyone that they think like pagans upon graduation because Jesus said that "A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher." (Luke 6:40) And Paul said "Do not be deceived: "Evil company corrupts good habits."" (1 Cor 15:33)

If you have any children in the public school system do all you can to get them out ASAP. And encourage other members of the Body of Christ to do the same for the sake of their children's souls and the health of the Body of Christ.
