Rescue the Perishing
“Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Rescue the perishing, duty demands it; Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide.”
We must rescue our children. They are perishing.
It is time to open our eyes and look around. There is a difference between seeing and understanding. We have denied what is before our very eyes.
We are losing our children. No amount of self-denial can powder-over the Truth. Our children no longer share our values.
Helen Keller said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” We can see, but we don’t understand. Let me scream it!!
WAKE UP!! WE ARE LOSING OUR CHILDREN!!!
The evidence is everywhere. I could quote you a bevy of statistics to prove it, but most of you are in such a state of denial that you will reject it. Rejecting knowledge is worse than ignorance. Willfully ignorant…hear no evil…see no evil…speak no evil… Don’t worry, be happy!!
The culture is eating your kid’s lunch. No wait. The culture is devouring your children. They are being chewed up and spit out. The landscape is strewn with the Spiritual carnage.
As Jack Nicholson uttered “You can’t handle the Truth!”
Our Lord will not treat lightly your disregard for the well-being of one of His children. He has entrusted them into your care. His warning is chilling:
“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” -Matt: 18:6
You have turned the training of your children over to the enemy. You have caused them to stumble…you have caused them to sin.
[Note from Berit: Coach Daubenmire's warnings expose a painful reality, but please don't be discouraged or give up. Actually, many faithful and concerned Christian parents a taking a stand -- often alone. They have no Biblical Church nor likeminded friends to walk with them through the spiritual battlefields ahead. But they trust God to lead them as they share His Word and warnings with their children. In the midst of the storm, they seek His grace, strength and wisdom, so they can guide their children through today's increasingly corrupt culture. (See more here, here and here. )
You have all of the excuses…”we can’t afford it”…”we are not qualified”…”the schools need our children to be salt and light”…”our schools are not that bad…”
Look around Buster. You are deceiving yourself. The public schools are destroying your children and you are the one who is responsible.
[But as in Old Testament days, God has a remnant that resists this corruption and trusts Him]
Permit me to paraphrase a Scripture. “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and LOSE HIS CHILDREN?!”
Sometimes I wonder if we know how to love our children.
Get them out of the government schools! Cease and desist…Run for your lives…flee immorality!
Wake up Dude!! Save yourself some heartache!! Rescue your children!
“Calling all cars. Calling all cars…government schools are poisoning your children.”
Children are the future. Peer into the looking glass. It ain’t pretty. We are facilitating our own demise.
Some things to consider:
• Many of your child’s classmates would never be welcomed into your home.
• Jesus is not honored in government schools no matter how “Christian” the teacher is.
• Childhood rape and molestation by teachers is skyrocketing in America’s schools.
• Many of your child’s teachers are amoral at best. The child becomes like his teacher.
• Do you know what the teacher believes? Is he/she someone your child should model?
• Seven hours of school per day…one hour of Sunday school per week. Duh!
• Would your church permit your child’s teacher to teach from the Sunday pulpit?
• Does your school teach the values of your church?
• Caesar teaches the values of Caesar. Do your kids belong to Caesar or to God?
• Do you know what senior boy has his sights set on your freshman daughter?
• Who is defending your daughter’s honor at school? Who is protecting her innocence?
• When your child is lost to the world what would you give to get him/her back?
It is time to rescue the perishing.
So here is a plan. Begin working it today. Set a goal and put the plan into action.
Begin homeschooling your children. Don’t believe the lie that the education establishment is dishing up. You don’t need a degree in education to educate a child. God entrusted you with the children. He wants YOU to implant a belief system in them. Christians must teach our values to our children. The government will teach the children the government’s values.
Did you watch the Super Bowl half-time show? Why do you think the NFL chose Madonna? They KNOW the values of the culture…the values of the government-educated masses. You think your child’s school is different…better? Do you need your head examined?
The internet is FULL of great home-school resources. “It costs little or nothing to provide students with a self-educating program. Technology is decentralizing. Parents can find a wide variety of programs for children with varying skills. The delivery system is essentially free if you have high speed internet access. The main cost now is time.”
Start a home-school co-op in your church. Partner with other parents who are facing the same dilemma as you. Churches by the thousands are sitting empty during the week while God’s children are trained by Caesar and his acolytes.
Open the building, Pastor. Invite home-schoolers to make use of the facilities. Create an atmosphere where parents can help teach each other’s children. One parent handle math, another science. Charge five bucks per head and bring in challenging speakers and educators for a day. Meet once or twice per week. Use the internet. Guide the education of your children. Control the peers they associate with. Take them on group field trips to reinforce the values you are teaching. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! There is plenty of help. You can do it!!
We must re-link education and Christian values. We have one-generation…tops…to reclaim this culture. Secular education cannot do it. That is not their goal. Their goal is equality, no one smarter than anyone else. Government controls the curriculum. Please take 4 minutes to watch this video. It is funny…but heart-breaking…laughing all the way to hell.
Excuses are like noses. Everybody has one and they all smell. Go ahead…trade your child’s soul for something you can buy in a store.…
Downsize your house. Sell one of the cars. Get rid of some of the toys! It is not a question of whether you can afford it. It is a question of can you afford not to!!
"Government schools can't teach reading, writing, and arithmetic - why should we trust them to teach morality, respect, and character? If public education does for ethics what it's done for learning, we'll end up with a generation of immoral, disrespectful, and characterless students." -Steve Dasbach
Government education is destroying our children. It is destroying America. Stick your head in the sand if you want. That will not change the facts. Our children are perishing.
Look in the mirror. The Lord has entrusted them to you. Stop giving them “stuff” and start investing “You” into them. For heaven’s sake, do your duty. Rescue them!
