Welcome to the Newheart Commentary of the Lifting Us Up In Liberty Program.
This Commentary continues with the quest to urge all parents to educate yourself and your children Biblically and culturally to make certain you are aware that what is being taught in your child’s school is probably not in line with your Christian values and America’s Constitution.
The sense of urgency should be loud and clear. Schools are implementing propaganda in the name of tolerance. Some schools are providing exceptions to students in the Islamic religion to pray in a prayer room. Authorities say “It is a reasonable accommodation. “It’s a place to practice their religion in security.” “It’s about cultural inclusion.”
Now is the time for the church to stand up. Now is the time to be Biblically honest about everything we are facing. It is not the time to cower. A popular quote (in part) by Martin Niemoller after he was imprisoned in concentration camps follows : “First they came for the socialists and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the Jews & I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me & there was no one left to speak for me.”
It is the same today: First they came to kill the unborn, but I did not speak out because I wasn’t an abortionist. Then they came & took prayer from school but I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a church leader.
Parent, they want your children next! They want their mindset to be one accord with the state! It’s called indoctrination. This is your last chance before the darkness overcomes for decades or even centuries.
This generation of young people is the target. You are the parent. This is America. We still have a window of opportunity. Name the enemy! Ephesians 5:11 says “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather EXPOSE them.” We need to act out of complete faith and obedience to God. We need to humble ourselves and pray and KNOW God hears our prayers!
Read the Biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It will enlighten and convict you to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ despite the adversity and hatred he faced in standing for the truth of the Gospel. The book would be a great read for your high schooler or college student this summer. Chapters 12-15 tell of the ignorance of the “not-so-Christian” church in the days of Nazi Germany.
History repeats itself. Let the church in America not become the cowards and friends of the enemy as in the days of Nazis Germany. Bonhoeffer said “We must shake off our fear of this world-the cause of Christ is at stake and ARE WE to be found sleeping??………”Don’t be found sleeping! Our kids need you to speak up. To pray up. To Show up at school meetings. Show them you will not tolerate evil in the name of cultural inclusion.
