“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV
How has this great nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, in such short time slipped into an abyss of moral depravity? It’s a sad commentary! Now, even reaching our young children beginning at elementary grades. We, as Christians, spend tens of thousands of dollars each year sending our children to the public schools and our children return home questioning or denying their faith and the validity of God’s word. The problem is not the public-school system! The problem is that the church has not properly discipled or equipped the body of Christ in how to actually do apologetics in the public arena “always by ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear…” When the public-school system and the social constructs of our society go down the path of moral depravity, every Christian should be on the frontline engaging in ‘apologetics’ or intellectual verbal hand-to-hand combat that can effectively neutralize all attempts of our assailant to publicly destroy our faith, family and country. Jesus’ words still ring true today.
“If any may would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s shall save it. For what doth it profit a man, to gain the whole world, and to forfeit his life? For what should a man give in exchange for his life? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man also shall be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38.
It appears that the church has been ashamed of Jesus and His words in this adulterous and sinful generation. Therefore, we should not be surprised to find that our government and public educational system for decades has systematically, through the sleight-of-hand of political-correctness and corrupt legal maneuvering, been vying for our children and pushing the homosexual agenda into our public schools – even at younger and younger ages – while the leaders of our Christian churches have been conspicuously silent, hiding themselves and their congregants, in the safe shadows of society. They are either hoping that this issue will quietly pass away or they are encouraging the church to accept this new social construct. As long as the church continues to act as a strobe-light “they light a lamp and put it under a basket” and “if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned” as it relates to moral issues, we, the church, will continue to be treated as irrelevant in the public arena and trampled underfoot by men. This was profoundly illustrated in the 2012 presidential election.
Ever since Democrat President Barack Obama was elected to two terms of office (2009-2016), along with the Democrat Party platform and some RINO Republicans, there has been a strong paradigm shift towards – the LGBTQ (homosexual) agenda – being promoted in every venue of our society – from Politics, Media, the Courts, Science, Education, Medicine, Law Enforcement, Business and Religion. Not only are we being forced to accept the homosexual agenda (same-sex marriage along with its dozens of new sexual orientations), they are also attempting, with great success, to force our children grades K1-12 to learn and accept the gender dysphoria classification (that a boy can be a girl’s; or a girl can be a boy) and many other unnatural sexual behaviors – all under the guise of equal rights and pseudo-science. Under universal health care any homosexual is legally authorized, at tax payers expense, to go under the knife and medically change their biological gender. The will of the parent, both in secular and religious circles, has been consistently ignored and grossly violated. Our children are not wards of the state; therefore, the government has no right to usurp its authority over the rights of the parent concerning their own children – accept under special circumstances, which does not apply here – such as gross negligence or physical abuse by the hand of one or more parent.
Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. aptly confronts one’s moral conscience by stating, “Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? but, conscience asks the question, Is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.”
This is a strong criticism against the Churches in America today, as it occurred during the mid-1950s and1960s, our conscience was seared like a hot iron as we refused to publicly defend what was right and true. Why? since it is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular. The Church has an obligation, a responsibility, to let the United States of America know (especially in states like California, New York, Hawaii, Chicago, Atlanta, Louisiana, etc), that these are our children, not the government’s. We know what’s best for our children, not the government. The material they want to teach our children is so obscene and sexually explicit that I can’t even bring myself to share it here (see video: Ourwatchnow.com – Sex Ed for kids Episode 1). It is the ‘sexual exploitation’ of our children. Instead of teaching our children parentally approved curriculum – Reading, Writing and Arithmetic – they want to recruit, corrupt and destroy these precious little souls. We must be vigilant and refuse to allow the state to continue exploiting our children, and if necessary, we will mobilize a mass exit of our children from these depraved institutions called public-schools. We cannot! We must not! We will not allow our children to be indoctrinated and sexualized by the government and the teaching establishment. The most profound and fundamental question that must be asked and answered is, “Can the Church protect our children from the homosexual agenda?”
Yes, it can, but it won’t! Actions by the Christian Church in America, historically, has been its refusal to publicly stand in the cap and lead the charge on moral issues. Today, many church leaders and their congregants, out of perpetual fear have refuse to protect their children from the sexual onslaught infiltrating our public schools – so it is highly unlikely that this attitude will change within the Christian community in the near future. Why? Because ‘American Christianity’ the religious practice conducted in this country is similar to, but far from being what true ‘Biblical Christianity’ represents. American Christianity – lives in a constant safety bubble, and although it has been beneficial to our society (from feeding the poor, to building hospitals and orphanages, to caring for the sick, those afflicted with HIV, and aiding during natural disasters); its primary status and growth has been based solely on secular approval: mainly through cowardice and safety, thereby continues to be irrelevant surrounding the ever-increasing moral depravity facing our nation. What does the church in America lack? Public boldness, courage, faithfulness and wisdom (we are so naïve and so fearful).
So, now it is crucial for the church, God’s children, to take this charge seriously, “there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.” This is very hard for Christians to digest, but it is true. Each individual, Christian, must take responsibility for the current moral decline wrecking the foundation of our nation. We have allowed these things to happen. The fact that we are “Spirit-filled, Bible believing Christians” working in every strata of society, yet we make little or no quantifiable difference in our spheres of everyday influence. We let the words “God Bless America” roll frequently off our lips, but our lifestyles and actions demonstrate that we do not honor God. This type of Christianity is very subtle and deceptive (in order to enjoy the privileges and benefits received from society we frequently disobey God; by appealing to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life). We are limited in our scope of wisdom and we lack the power needed to bring real change in our immediate world. To be fair to the Christian church community, we must admit that there is a Selective Narrative within the Media that promotes political-correctness and often misrepresents our Christian faith by refusing to allow opposing voice to challenge the status quo around human sexuality and the homosexual agenda. The Church or Christian community must never capitulate to any acts that contradict the moral character of God (whether individual, institutional, philosophical or religious).
The saying rings true, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Today many of our public schools and universities falsely argue for “the Separation of Church & State” clause opposing everything moral and decent. It is this reason our children are being subjugated to sexual indoctrination. Covering the last seventy years from 1948 to 2018, the examples listed below can give us a glimpse into the reasons why we are where we are in America today.
In the 1940s, Alfred Kinsey, a zoologist at Indiana University and the founder of the Kinsey Institute promoted two best-selling books that were highly controversial within the general public and the scientific community claiming to be based on proper scientific research and analysis of 5300 males and 6000 females (significant portions of study came from prison populations and male prostitutes) not representative of the general population. In the late-1940’s and early 1950’s the Kinsey Report presented two books on Human Sexuality. The sexual revolution begins in America under the guise of what is so-called “scientific research on human sexuality.” Where was the church?
In 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial Dr. MLK, Jr gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech which in conclusion he said, “….we will be able to speed up the day when all God’s children Black men & white men, Jews & Gentiles, Protestants & Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old negro spiritual: Free at Last! Free at Last! Thank God almighty we are free at last. However, my superior White Bible believing Christian brothers and sisters opposed the dismantling of the Jim Crow laws in the Bible belt of the South in favor of the continual oppression of their, so called, inferior Black Christian brothers and sisters. Where was the church?
In that same year, 1963, the US Supreme Court deemed unconstitutional due to the tireless and fearless efforts of atheist and activist Madeline Murray O’Hare to remove Prayer from our public schools based on a manipulation of the “separation of church and state” clause (found neither in the Declaration of Independence or US Constitution) and the Christian community silently approves. Where was the church?
In 1970s, Governor of California Ronald Reagan, which he later regretted, signed into law a bill legalizing “No Fault Divorce” which has destroyed families and left many children in this country fatherless and poverty stricken. Now Christians, without biblical support, are divorcing in record numbers today disregarding Jesus’ teaching on marriage and divorce (see Matthew 19:4-6). Where was the church?
In 1973, the US Supreme Court (in the Roe v Wade case) deemed it a woman’s right to destroy the fetus/baby in her womb. Planned Parenthood assisted Norma McCorvey, who was pregnant at the time, and became the poster child for abortion – the killing of a child in the womb for any reason – from the pre-natal stage up to the end of the ninth month. However, Norma McCorvey gave birth to her child, and later became an ardent Pro-life activist and supporter. After forty-six years of Planned Parenthood’s unjust killing of millions of innocent children in the womb, under the pro-life stance of President Donald Trump, we are now attempting to roll back and overturn this brutal atrocity against women and their children. Where was the church?
In 1973, The American Psychiatric Association & in 1975, the American Psychological Association deemed it necessary, without any legitimate scientific support, that homosexuality was no longer a mental illness. Thank you, Alfred Kinsey. The LGBTQ/RSTWXYZ activist and community are incrementally changing the social constructs in America in support of the homosexual community through laws – pseudo-science, law-enforcement, media, churches, educational system and businesses. The Church again gave little push back and quietly accepted the findings. Where was the church?
In 1991 Simon LeVay, neurologist, published an article that reported a difference in average size between…hypothalamus (INAH3) in the brains of heterosexual men and homosexual men (more than twice in heterosexual men) suggesting sexual orientation had a biological substrate. Also, in a 1991 study, by J Michael Bailey, psychologist and Richard C. Pillard, psychiatrist “Homosexual orientation in twins: a report on 61 pairs and three triplet sets” which concluded that homosexuality is substantially inherited. In 1993 Dean Hamer, geneticist, claimed a linkage between DNA markers on the X chromosome (Xq28) and male sexual orientation, as evidence that a genetic role applies. The media ran with these limited studies regarding homosexual genes and traits to promote homosexuality ‘I was born gay’ as a Civil Right and Equal Right position. Where was the church?
In 2008, Proposition 8 – a California ballot and state constitution amendment – where marriage would be defined ‘as only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California’ passed in the November 2008 California elections. Then Governor Jerry Brown and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom stood against the vote of the people. The California Supreme Court, in 2009, upheld the vote of the people, but the Federal court ruled it unconstitutional in 2010 and overturned its California citizens vote. The church was offended the decision, but took the lose graciously and quietly. Where was the church?
In 2013, the US Supreme Court, refusal to take a clear and definite stance on Proposition 8 defining “Marriage as between a man and a woman only” has created confusion in America. In 31 states marriage is still defined as between 1 man & 1 woman. However, in another 18 states, 15 of these states, although the people voted for Traditional Marriage – Liberal politicians & Judges – disregarding the will of the people forced those State’s to accept Same-Sex marriage. Where was the church?
On April 28, 2015, the US Supreme Court, without authority is deliberating on the Constitutionality of Same-Sex Marriage. The Courts, the government, nor mankind create “Marriage & Family” God did. Therefore, the courts have no authority to change the definition of Marriage as “1 Man and 1 Woman Only” and the procreation of children “boys and girls only.” Where is the Church?
On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court, legalized Same-Sex marriage as constitutional. In short order, it is now, presently entering into our public schools K1-12 grades. How long will the Christian churches out of fear, continue to sit quietly by, and allow the public education system to sexualize our children. Where is the Church?
We have come full circle in almost seventy years – from the late 1940s with the sexualization of our adult males and females, to the late 2010s with the sexualization of our children. How did these things happen in America when millions claim to be Christians filled with the Holy Spirit and walking in the will of God? The tragedy today is that millions of Spirit-filled Christians haven’t made any real difference in the American culture. Christians in America are following the examples of their leaders. Pastors and leaders are afraid to publicly stand on morally sensitive issues (Abortion, Sex-Ed, Homosexuality), we are afraid to stand publicly against the evils in our nation (the cost is too high for them), and most of all we are afraid to lay down their lives for Jesus Christ. Our leaders fear men, rather than God. Because the Christian Church often has a tendency to be absent from the public call of combat or derelict of duty (refusing to sacrifice our lives, to protect and defend even our children)! Jesus led and taught his disciples by example, even giving his life. Why, what is the difference? Because men, women and children living in the first century followed the examples of their leaders and were willing to lay down their lives for the truth claims of Christ.
Although many of our Christian church leaders are usually silent on moral sensitive issues, there are a few leaders, groups, parents and individuals (such as California Family Council; Pacific Justice Institute; Informed Parents of California; Alliance Defending Freedom; Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance, Save California, One Million Moms, American Renewal Project, etc.,) are taking a stand to protect and defend our family and children in society and the public schools from the onslaught of the homosexual agenda. A new boldness, hopeful is beginning to manifest itself, and is coming to the forefront. It is my hope that as more and more people become aware of the things the public schools, especially in California and other states, are trying to teach our kids they too will rise up and take a bold stand. In various cities throughout California, parents have said “enough is enough’ and have set specific dates throughout the year to take their children out of school for a day to voice their concerns about the new perverse ‘sexual curriculum’ being presented to our children.
STEPS WE MUST TAKE TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
Christian pastors and leaders must step from behind the safety of their pulpits: Sound the alarm – the call to battle – to defend our children before it is too late. Until Christian leaders become like Jesus and the first-century Christians, willing to be mocked, vilified, beaten, imprisoned and put to death because it’s the right thing to do the Christian church will continue to be anemic and we will never make any real change in society. If our leaders are afraid to publicly fight and stand on truth, why should their members fight?. As we have seen in the past, our silence as Christians has always proved detrimental and devastating to future generations. It happened during American Slavery and Nazi Germany – Millions of people died because the Church was silent. The Christian church (Evangelicals and Roman Catholics) as a whole remain silent, always lurking in the shadow of fear, standing arms-length from the center of public opinion, refusing to let their light shine and glorify their Father in heaven.
Demand an “Opt-In” school policy: Reject the “Opt-out” policy of your school district. Then the onus, using the Opt-In policy, will be on the school, not the parent, as has been in the past with the Opt-Out policy. This will give more control to parents of their own children and limit the unjustified control of the public-school system. Each public school or school district must notify any legal guardian of the child/children by mail, an authorized approved parental ‘Sex-Ed Curriculum’ permission slip, of when and where each sex-ed curriculum will be taught. The permission slip must be completed, signed, dated by the parent and return to the proper school before any child participates in the ‘Sex-Ed’ curriculum. No child will participate in the school’s sex-ed curriculum without the parents’ signed and dated “Opt In” permission slip consent.
Mobilize a mass exit of our children: That is to say, it must be coordinated by concerned parents for a city-wide and district-wide ‘take your child out of school for one, two and/or three days.’ Do this each quarter or at least four times each year (Do not totally remove children from our failing public school system because we still need to be “the Light of the world” in the schools). It must be done in mass (large groups of children stay home from school for a day or more). Each day a child is absent from class the school loses funds. They will not listen to us until the cost becomes unsustainable for each school or district (Until the school district allows us room at the table and seriously negotiate and discuss our terms, we will not stop until our children are safe).
We must make this a national issue: This must start and continue from a grassroot level. We must relentlessly fight this issue until it reaches Washington DC. It must spread throughout all cities and states across the country. We must push for and promote daily dialogue and demand the “Sex-Ed” curriculum – Cease and Desist; Each concerned parent must publicly speak out at public schools, to family, friends and politicians, against the recruitment and homosexualizing of our children in the public school. This will force the politicians to pay attention and take us seriously.
Call Governor Gavin Newsom today (916) 445-2841: Veto AB 493: LGBTQ Affirmation Training for Teachers. Making teachers whose religious convictions differ from the LGBTQ agenda learn and teach it in the public schools.
Vote and Run for school office: If necessary, we must remove school board members, and replace them with individuals that care about educating our children, not sexualizing them. You may be called to that office – as a school board member.
Take a small notebook for record keeping: This is a necessary tool Christians should learn how to use effectively. Always notate comments of any individual or group that tries to prevent you from exercising your first amendment rights. Write the name of the person (include their title), date, time, location of event. Notate the exact quote of the person (example, Principal Jane Doe of Capitola Middle School confronting you) says, “You are breaking the law and you cannot protest here! I’m going to call the police.” Your response, “Are you forbidding me to exercise my constitutional right to protest the public school’s action by standing here on the public sidewalk?” Repeat and notate their exact quote, then wait for their response. Next, inform them that they will likely be hearing from your attorney or a legal affiliation (such as PJI-Pacific Justice Institute; ACLJ-American Center for Law and Justice; or any other agency that defends parents’ rights and religious freedoms). They will likely begin back pedaling (because they don’t want to be involved in a long drawn out law suit).
In closing, let me emphatically state, least we are misunderstood that we love homosexuals and support their equal treatment with dignity, respect and fairness. As it is written in the Declaration of Independence that, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” However, contrary to popular opinion, right and wrong, are not determined by majority or minority rule; nor by those able to twist the strong arm of justice in their favor. Truth does not pick sides it often stands alone. We cannot, we must not and we will not support the homosexual’s demand for special rights by their bullying us to accept gender dysphoria and a plethora of other sexual orientations.
It is for this reason we have come to let government officials and the public-school system know that we are tired, and can no longer sit idly by in our stagnant pews of do nothing bound by your heavy chains of Tolerance.
We can no longer allow ourselves to be lulled to sleep by your melodic symphony of self-delusion and we have been powerfully awakened to the clarion call of action.
Yes, we are tired! And we refuse to continue to walk quietly down the corridors of judicial, political and mainstream media tyranny, and allow the moral foundation of this great nation be abducted and unjustly incarcerated behind the prison walls of Hedonism, which is a caricature of freedom and equality.
We know, over the next forty years, now that the US Supreme Court has legalized same-sex marriage, it will be very difficult to close this heavy lid and deny anyone’s sexual behavior. The collateral damage will be devastating, especially for our children, as we have come to see by the actions of political correctness. Therefore, we are prepared and will continue to march to the cadence of Compassionate Truth, as stated in the Word of God, until “Justice run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.” This is our destiny; this is our goal, and like a tree planted by rivers of living waters we shall not be move!”
And if we’re wrong, the Constitution of the United States is wrong. And if we’re wrong, four-score and seven million citizens of these United States are wrong and if we’re wrong, God, Almighty is wrong, but we’re not wrong. Why? Because the majestic walls of morality stand firm on a solid foundation of absolute truth and it can never be abolished by the torrid winds of political correctness or judicial tyranny. Therefore, God’s truth will continue to march on! Glory Hallelujah, we can boldly say, God’s truth shall continue to march on.
Christians are often derelict of their duties today constantly claim, “We’re living in the last days and that events happening in America are predicted in the Bible. Jesus is coming soon and He will rapture us away from the great tribulation or wrath to come on earth.” This is wrong! How do I know this? Because Christians around the world (in countries such as Syria, Iraq, Africa, Russia, China, etc.,) are being kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered for their faith, yet, God hasn’t rescued them (they are experiencing great tribulation now). Christians in America, out of fear of man, consistently disobey God and actually believe they will be spared from the great tribulation. We must be Deaf, Blind & Dumb! Christians should not be saying Lord come quickly, but instead, “Lord please tarry for 50, 60 or 100 years because there are so many lost souls in the world and I want to be used in a powerful way by your Spirit to reach as many as possible before you return.” The prophet Isaiah speaks well to us today, as it relates to the Christian pastors, leaders and congregants in this country, due our consistent refusal to publicly stand on the truth – since it is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular.
Isaiah 59:1-4 “Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor is his ear to dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken lies, and your tongue mutters wicked things. No one calls for justice; no one pleads his case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments and speak lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.” Amen! Lord, have mercy on us!
