DusT off YouR Bible

The ‘Bible Literacy Project’ – Not Attacked by the ACLU Yet! goes on to say..
“Congress granted the approval to print “a neat edition of the Holy Scriptures for the use of schools.” Congress’ endorsement stamped on the first page: “Whereupon, Resolved, That the United States in Congress assembled…recommend this edition of the Bible to the inhabitants of the United States…”.

Okay, American Civil Liberties Union, People for the (anything but) American Way, and People United for Separation of Church and State — don’t get yourselves in an uproar! It’s history. The above event happened twice — 1777 and 1782 when Congress ordered 20,000 Bibles each time for the benefit of citizens and childrens’ education…

..Then there was no question about the Bible as education…The last 80 years, the ACLU and others have taken America’s Christian foundation to court — and Won! through the idiocy of socialist-minded, self-serving Supreme Court judges…

Today’s public schools, connected as they are to the purse strings of the secular federal government, have pushed God and His Word out of the schools thereby limiting childrens’ education. Children lack background reference to many phrases common in language such as “walk on water,” “pearls before swine,” “30 pieces of silver,” “the Golden Rule,” and “the last shall be first.” How would a child or an adult know where these phrases originated or what they mean unless they have read the Bible?

Despite the attempt to twist the First Amendment to suit small-minded and self-serving interest groups, the people are responding through adopting Bible curriculum as an elective in high schools. One such group is the National Council on Bible Curriculum in Public Schools (NCBCPS). Their course called “The Bible as History and Literature” is taught in 1,100 high schools in 346 school districts in 37 states, from Alaska and California to New Jersey and Florida. The Bible is the textbook. The ACLU does not endorse this curriculum but has not sued to date.

Imagine the Congress authorizing the printing of the Bible for public schools today. The enraged outcry from special interests, minority groups, and other secular, atheist factions would further extinguish the voices that speak to us through the Bible.”

Back in the day, a common question would be – What does Bible say about..?It was God who set the moral standards for mankind. How does morality exist outside of the theological context?
Look around you these days…it doesn’t.

What you bear witness to is moral chaos reminiscent of ancient Israel before the time of its kings when “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25).To state that moral relativism and situational ethics work in the long run is a purely dishonest rationalization.

While it is certainly appealing to think that humans would discover “on their own”- that murder, lying, stealing, and pornogrpahy are harmful enough to the general welfare to be considered morally wrong…the evidence lies in the decadent Godless culture you see before you.

When deciding issues of “right or wrong” it seems most find themselves hopelessly trapped in a maze of confusion with no clear direction.
Homosexual marriage?

Wer’e lost with respect to the most fundamental aspects of our lives: Our locus of control,what truly gives us self-esteem, our social values, and the status of the family.

Perhaps next time we are faced with a moral dilmemna, we would do wise to ask “What does Bible say about..?”

    Moral relativism is largely responsible for the problems with our society today. People will be a law unto themselves if they don’t have a guide, and the Bible is the best guide we can have.

    Good post!

    It’s an amazing post, Angel.

    Most people that I know on the internet know I live in Texas. There’s a very good reason I don’t publish the name of the town I live in on my blog. If the ACLU got ahold of what I am going to tell you, they’d be all over this place like flies on honey.

    The Republican Party of the county I lived in passed out free bibles to every single elementary school child in the public school system last year. No atheists went to court to object. Nothing was printed in the paper. It was just done, and taken for granted because they have been doing that for awhile.

    All is not lost everywhere in this country. Just thought I’d spread some good news.

    As far as the ACLU is concerned, they are here in Texas, of course, and are trying to remove a minute of silence from our public schools. They will not succeed, of that I am certain.

    I meant to say the “county I ‘live’ in”, not “lived in.” I still live in the same county. Thank God! :)

    Great post Angel. Keep ‘em coming!!

    Marx was religious, too. He fervently believed that God did not exist. If we can share that religion, then we can share Christiniaty, too.

    There is a reason for seperation of church and state, and this is it.

    Religion does not belong in schools, it belongs in a church. Let a person gain their own resonability and decide for themselves whether to believe in a God or not.

    I am not knocking your religion or belief in God or even your post, I merely saying that in this country we have the freedom to believe or NOT believe. It is not about state or country. The state or the country does not and SHOULD not have the ability to force people into believing in something. We have LAWS to follow, laws that were inacted by states and country to keep order and protect people. Moral laws were created by man.

    Nice post, even if I don’t agree…

    Great comment about Marx KT… also shows that many who think that Communism and Socialism wants to “do away” with Religion are incorrect in their thinking… We ENCOURAGE religious thought, we just discourage its involvment in the legal, governmental stature of the government

    Great post WHT,

    I heard Dennis Prager the other day talking about the difference between “mind” and “brain”. Of course all animals have brains, but “mind” is the higher level of reasoning sometimes known as “wisdom”. Without training in “wisdom” (Bible), then people only have their brains to rely on and hence behave as animals.

    You can see that played out in communist countries (case in point the Orient Organ Transplant Center) and in the 100 million bodies which litter communist history. It continues to be an attractive path which lost see as broad and attractive.

    Religion may not belong in schools but there was sure a lot less trouble in the US when there was prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance was said every morning. No denying things have gone downhill since.

    What great news from Gayle!

    I work with Christian homeschoolers. We keep our Bibles handy!
