ANY DAY NOW
America began to turn away from God in the 1960’s when any mention of God was taken out of the schools.
Schools and colleges were started by Christians, but were successful, then being taken over by the government.
According to Stephen McDowell at https://www.forerunner.com/mandate/X0056_Americas_Schools.html
The founders of the United States were very much aware of the relation of education and liberty. They knew that a people cannot be ignorant and free. Jefferson said it this way:
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
Benjamin Franklin said that ignorance results in bondage:
A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.
The founders of the United States believed that useful education — that which produced liberty – must have its foundation in Christianity.
The topic of sex education in school has always brought up heated debates since the early 1900’s. There has been much controversy over time on what to teach, who should teach, the morality of sex education in the classroom and the religions aspects and beliefs of the families that attend the school.
Throughout time we have seen a change in the way sex education is taught in pubic schools. The focus of the following is to shed light on the content shift in sex education classes to determine why the change occurred. How have the views of sex education in schools created a shift in the learning content from teaching about marriage and family life to pregnancy and STD prevention?
Around the 1950s and 1960s the focus of sex education was towards the marriage and family life style, the anatomy of the human bodies and the roles of family members. As we progress over time towards the 1990’s and today we can see that the focus of sex education has taken a shift in a different direction. In today’s public school system sex education classes now focus more on the prevention of unwanted pregnancies and contracting sexually transmitted diseases. (Finkel, M. L., & Finkel, S. 1985) We see the shift from marriage and family focus to a focus on the individual and their personal preventive health. Prior to the education curriculum of the 1980’s there was a deeper religious impact on the sex education curriculum in school systems in the United States. (Lamb, S. 2013)
Since all the laws of America are based on the Ten Commandments, there was great disagreement throughout the land when a government decision to remove them was made. In June of 2005, the following site: https://answersingenesis.org/culture/america/us-supreme-court-rules-on-ten-commandments-displays/ states:
“The Supreme Court justices ruled that each exhibit of the Ten Commandments demands scrutiny to determine whether it goes too far in promoting religion.
Today (June 27), the US Supreme Court ruled that the framed copies of the Ten Commandments hanging in two Kentucky courthouses violate the separation of church and state established in the First Amendment. (It also ruled that the 6-foot granite monument of the Ten Commandments could remain standing on the grounds of the Texas capitol, but not inside the building.)
Sending mixed signals in these highly anticipated cases, the Court said displays of the Ten Commandments-ironically like ones found in its own courtroom 1-are not “inherently unconstitutional.” But the justices ruled that each exhibit demands scrutiny to determine whether it goes too far in promoting religion 2 According to the high court, some displays inside courthouses are permissible if they are portrayed neutrally to honor the nation’s legal history.
However, practically the same day, they were completely banned as noted at this site: https://www.foxnews.com/story/supreme-court-bars-commandments-from-courthouses
“Supreme Court Bars Commandments From Courthouses” – June 28, 2005.
School prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance which contains the name “God”, have been extremely controversial issues for many years as this scripture seems to strongly proclaim: Eph 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
From a Christian perspective these principalities and powers are very evident in this tearing away from America the Godly principles upon which it was established. God creates and Satan destroys, just at 911 was example of God allowing Satan to remind America of whom is really in control.
This type of action was reinforced with the election of “back to law and order” Donald Trump, the only President of the United States who has fulfilled all his campaign promises. Amazing!!!!
The Pledge of Allegiance is one of the nation’s most honored secular symbols, viewed by many in the same light as the National Anthem. Written in 1892, it was later modified by Congress and President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954 to include a reference to God. Many public schools featured the pledge as part of the school day throughout the mid-twentieth century.
Controversy over the Pledge of Allegiance has continued to this year of 2020 with additional incidences of use or non-use making headlines in newspapers or comments on television and cable networks of the Internet, all of which are governed by the “Prince of this World” as per biblical note. In addition wealthy sports figures are now bowing or “taking a knee” to protest their feelings of “racism” even though their fortunes are being made in the country they protest, dismissing many deaths and disability misery caused by others dying for their protection. It’s like “if I can’t see it, then it don’t exist”.
