Trained to Stand in the Rain: Government School Bus Stops

1 Comment

As I was driving to work a few days ago, it was pouring down rain, and, I thought, “It would not be fun to stand here even if you had on a raincoat or carried an umbrella.” Then, in the early morning darkness, I noticed kids standing in the rain for who knows how long waiting for the school bus. I thought, who in their right mind would just stand there in it, and who would send their child out there to stand in it? Government School Parishioners.


Only those who are fully indoctrinated into secular humanism as played out in the government schools will do something like this. What’s worse is that this is considered a great ‘sacrifice’, much like how a Christian would go out in the rain to help a traveler caught in a storm. The difference is that the former is meaningless absurdity and merely shows just how committed someone is to giving themselves to an ideology that sees them as nothing but evolved slime and ultimately treats them like a cog in a machine that can be expended without a second thought for the ‘collective good’.

What is a sound Biblical alternative to this madness? Homeschool

God commands us to diligently teach these commands to our children (Deuteronomy 6:7); this is not a suggestion but a command. Furthermore, we must teach our children to teach their children, lest we fail to keep the covenant. R. C. Sproul, Jr. elaborates on this when he warns, “They must teach their own children these same truths. In like manner, if I fail to teach my children to teach their children, I have failed to keep covenant.”[i] Therefore, let us not neglect the teaching of God’s Word to our children, and, likewise teach them how to teach their children, for we are reminded that when we train up a child in the way that he should go that when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). There are those rebellious ones who simply refuse to submit to the LORD, but godly children are the normative fruit of a Biblical household when they are brought up in the fear and admonition of the LORD (Ephesians 6:4).  Every generation must step up to the plate.  Remember, we’re only one generation away from apostasy and judgment.

When then are we to teach them? God cannot be more emphatic here, for the Scripture goes to great lengths to hammer home when we are to teach His Word to our children. It is not without cause that Moses says the same thing in different ways, for, when the Hebrews wanted to highlight something, they would either repeat it as in “Holy, Holy, Holy,” (Isaiah 6:3) or they would repeat the same message again but with different words. This passage should alarm us because of how much repetition is involved. This is not fluff; rather, God is communicating the absolute importance of bringing up children with godly instruction not only in word but also in deed.

We are to teach them when we sit down, when we walk by the way, when we lie down, and when we rise (Deuteronomy 6:7). The teaching of God’s Word is 24/7, 365. Period. There is no time when we are not modeling or explicitly teaching His Word. If we miss this point, then we have totally missed the thrust of this passage. I work for a local Police Department as an Evidence Manager, but I am a Christian. Christianity is not simply what I do; it defines who I am from the inside out. The Living Christ dwells within me, and He is made manifest in every area of my life at all times in both deed and word, in the heart and in the mind, in spirit and in truth.

Furthermore, these Divine Words shall be bound upon our hands and as frontlets between our eyes, and they are written on the doorposts of our house and on our gates (Deuteronomy 6:8-9). All of life must display the glory of God in our lives. God’s Word is not merely written in a book for personal inquiry; rather, His Word is written upon our hearts by which these same hearts are circumcised and made holy (Romans 2:29). By God’s grace, this does not express itself in our lives without a deliberate effort to be consumed by God and His Word. We cannot absorb Scripture by osmosis; we must be reading it and meditating upon it regularly. Likewise, we must be leading our children in godliness every moment of every day by what we say and how we act.

My Kids, Not Yours Uncle Sam!

Recent media promotions by the left have gotten bolder and more aggressive. They demand that our children be forced into government school temples, but we won’t give them away to these blasphemers. God gave them to us as parents and not to the collective minded bureaucrats who desire to manipulate and indoctrinate our kids into Marxist ideology.

Communist Leaders

The great irony in all of this is that Christians have willingly sent their children into public schools for several generations. The left dominates the schools, so they dominate the culture. The often quoted saying goes, “He who rules the schools rules the world.” This should send tremors down our spines because we witness every day, and the communist Marxist socialists who often don’t have children want ours with unprecedented zeal.

We then ask ourselves, “Is this idea new?” No.

The Spartans of old were a very statist society, for the children (and everyone else for that matter) were property of the state to serve its will, but such governments are more sinister than first meets the eye.  Behind this entity called the state lies an elite ruling class or even a dictator depending on the set up. Today, they are empowering a particularly enticing system that works best to satisfy their authoritarian lusts for dominion over their fellow man: Marxism.

Marxism appeals to man’s covetous nature and it promises paradise, but it always only deliver tyranny, which is exactly what the elite have in mind to begin with. They rule as kings and nobles. Now … we may not call them unchecked absolute monarchs, but they function the same way with just as much power. The difference is that in the past at least you knew who the tyrant was. In a socialist type government, the leaders are more veiled behind the illusion of this entity we call the state.

How should we then live?

It does not take a village to raise a child! It takes a Father and a Mother under the Lordship of Christ. It is true that the extended family and the Church are often a means to hold the nuclear unit accountable, give wisdom, and provide support.  However, that is as far as their authority goes. The rest is up to Mom and Dad as the Lord has ordained from the beginning. The state does not know how to raise my children better than I do, and I am appalled at such ungodliness.

Be ye warned. Such rhetoric is not empty because they would gladly steal your children in a heartbeat. They’ve been doing it for many years now, but they are meeting a great challenge today, and they are horrified. What is it, and why is it such a threat?

The Biblically Based Homeschool.

To begin with, Homeschool is an assault on the left because it rips educational authority away from the state and gives it back to the family where it belongs. The left murders their children or has very few, so they must steal ours–the fruit of their own self-destructive worldview. This is magnified when a Homeschool is founded upon The Rock, Christ our Lord, because the Church is strengthened, and their idolatry is exposed in all its sinfulness, but they won’t bend quickly.

Therefore, fall on your knees my beloved brethren, and pray for the strength of Christ. You’ll need it now more than ever before. Will you stand up and hold fast to your children, or will you march them into a den of deception and ungodliness that hates the Lord Jesus Christ and everything He represents?

The rabid Marxist Communist Leninists are holding on for dear life, but, as for me and my house, we have yet begun to fight! Let us continue to tear down the strongholds of the Devil!  Raze his walls to the ground by the power of the Spirit of Christ who emboldens us just as strongly as the Prophets and the Apostles of old!

Soli Deo Gloria! Amen!
