Moral relativism: The Crisis of Public Education

When did the truth become so muddy?  Our grandparents used to know beyond a shadow of a doubt the difference between truth and untruth. But as that generation dies out, our generations and the generations to come have forgotten–or have never learned–the difference.  It happened to us within just a few generations thanks in part to the moral relativism intentionally and strategically introduced into the contemporary education system to erode the authority of God’s Word.

How did this happen? Joining us today is Freedom Project Education Academic Director and teacher Dr. James “Duke” Pesta.

Named after conservative icon John Wayne, Dr. Duke has taught at universities and high schools  and was instrumental in creating and launching a Bible course in the Texas Public School system.  A true Classical Education and Americanist advocate, Dr. Pesta worked tirelessly to overcome challenges from the school system and the courts to help make this course available to interested highschoolers in Texas.

    My fear is we will try to salvage something that should be abandoned. How many years has it been since God's word was put in print in english and even now we still refuse to do what he has made plain.

    LUke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say ? 47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

    Psalm 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

    The House of the Lord is built on Christ Jesus He is the Foundation and the Corner and the Capstone. What should we expect of any other house.

  3. 2 Chronicles 7: 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    Isn't there no distinction between sins, no big sin or little sin? I thought Jesus saw all sin as just that… Sin. ?

  5. Ezekiel 33

    New International Version (NIV)
    Renewal of Ezekiel’s Call as Watchman

    33 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, 3 and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, 4 then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head. 5 Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood.’
