God’s design for the family is for a man and a woman to unite in marriage, be fruitful and multiply, and raise their children in the ways of the Lord.  But there are a handful of institutions out there that think they can do a better job than God and parents.

Today we look at some disturbing stories documenting how government wants to indoctrinate our children into a humanist worldview, and also how television is presenting a very skewed look at the Bible.  Dr. Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation also shares the latest ways the wacky environmentalists are bringing their agenda to a school near you.

From Cal Beisner’s newsletter:

“The Obama Administration’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, admitted recently to asking the FBI to investigate the possibility of prosecuting scientists and others skeptical of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate catastrophe. This is a blatant misuse of power to limit the right to free speech of many American citizens.

Meanwhile, the Evangelical Environmental Network continues its assault on the pro-life movement with its most recent Clean Energy Campaign. This campaign promises to organize half a million pro-life Christians to curb CO2 emissions or what they refer to as “pollution.” In their misguided attempt to limit a colorless, odorless gas that is not harmful to the environment, they are damaging the pro-life movement, by using the term to refer to things other than abortion, and taking the focus off the intentional killing of babies.

“Heavenly Father, please help the people of planet Earth to realize that carbon dioxide is plant food, not a poisonous gas. May there be a massive outbreak of common sense so that the majority of ordinary people will object to the suicide pact which environmentalists want everybody to join in. Help us, we pray, Amen.” Bruce Atchinson

 

We also discuss parental discipline in the life of a child and how discipline today is often thought of as a bad thing – or even abuse. What are some of the things the Bible has to say regarding discipline in believers? Hebrews 12:4-11

You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons,

My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor faint when you are reproved by Him;
For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines,
And He scourges every son whom He receives.”

It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. 11 All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.
