As explained earlier, about 1890, as the United States became flooded with new immigrants, Christianity was submerged and many schoolbooks became secular. They rarely mentioned the name of God, and the name of Jesus Christ was suppressed. But many public schools still included prayer, Bible reading, the celebration of Christmas and other Christian holy days, and other Christian activities.

Then…

In the late 1950s, the United States Supreme Court superseded Christianity in public schools under the false governing principle of “separation of church and state” – a phrase not found in the Constitution or Bill of Rights or any United States governing document.

In New Hyde Park, New York, as part of the schools’ opening exercises over the intercom, students were asked to rise and bow their head and recite the twenty-two-word Regents’ Prayer. No student was required to recite the prayer; students could stand silent if they chose.

Five parents with a total of ten children in the New Hyde Park School District, near the New York City boundary, found the prayer offensive and in 1959 filed a lawsuit against the local school board. The objecting parents had varied religious backgrounds: two were Jewish; one was Unitarian; another was a member of the Ethical Culture Society; and the fifth was atheist.

All of the parents argued the school prayer violated the First Amendment of the Constitution. This amendment prohibits the government from passing laws establishing a national church. And the prayer, they maintained, was contrary to their particular religious beliefs and practices.

Read the prayer…

Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee,
and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country.

The Supreme Court of the United States agreed to hear the case. Its final decision in the summer of 1962 sent shock waves across the country: The Court ruled prayer in schools unconstitutional. Citizens were outraged. Politicians, religious leaders, and average citizens alike called the decision “shocking” and “tragic.” The national outrage proved that in 1962 the majority of Americans believed the United States was a Christian nation.

The Supreme Court examined the Establishment Clause to determine the outcome of Engel v. Vitale. Instead of justly applying the true intent of the Founding Fathers when they wrote the Constitution, and faithfully interpreting the plain and simple language of the Clause, the Supreme Court wickedly superseded Christianity in public schools and replaced it with infidelity, in keeping with the radical theology of the day.

An American liberal theological movement radically declaring "the death of God" rose to prominence in the late 1950s and 1960s. Just as progressive theologians radically demanded a secular interpretation of the Bible, progressive Supreme Court justices radically demanded a secular – ecumenical - interpretation of the Constitution in keeping with the cry, “God is dead!"  And the progressive, ecumenical significance of the Court’s radical declaration was loud and clear: God is dead in America’s public schools.

Recall Daniel Webster’s argument…

It is all idle, it is a mockery, and an insult to common sense, to maintain that a school for the instruction of youth, from which Christian instruction, by Christian teachers, is sedulously and rigorously shut out, is not deistical and infidel, both in its purpose and its tendency. I insist, therefore, that this plan of education is, in this respect, derogatory to Christianity, in opposition to it, and calculated either to subvert or to supersede it.

Engel v. Vitale maliciously intended to supersede Christianity under the false governing principle of “separation of church and state” – a phrase not found in any United States governing document. “Separation of church and state” was a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 in a letter to Danbury Baptists assuring them the government would not meddle in church affairs. https://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/9806/danpre.html

The First Amendment says the federal government may not establish a national church and demand mandatory attendance or tithes. Remember that colonial America was Christian America, and even secular sources acknowledge the plain meaning...

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion": Article 1 of the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States (1791) prohibits the establishment of a state religion, such as the Church of England. In other words, the law may not establish a national church and demand mandatory attendance or mandatory tithes. American colonists were not forced to be members of the Church of England or any other state religion; and could freely worship in the Christian church of their choice.

The Church of England is the officially established religious institution[3] in England, and also the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The British monarch is the titular leader of the Church of England."

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly forbids the federal government from enacting any law respecting a religious establishment, and thus forbids either designating an official church for the United States, or interfering with State and local official churches ¡ª which were common when the First Amendment was enacted. It did not prevent state governments from establishing official churches.

The intent of the First Amendment never was to subvert or supersede Christianity. However, in 1962, the United States Supreme Court maliciously misinterpreted the Establishment Clause to supersede Christianity in public schools and replace it with ecumenical infidelity - polytheism, or idolatry. In modern terminology, Secular Humanism.

The ungodly United States Supreme Court decision changed the future, not only of prayer in public schools, but of Bible-reading and other religious exercises.

 

Christians are Commanded to Possess the Land

Some Christians argue America must be a polytheistic nation alleging this is Biblical. This is wrong…

When the Israelites went up out of Egypt a large, mixed multitude of foreigners accompanied them. Among the Israelites there were at all times those who were not Hebrew. They were tolerated and granted some privileges. But they had to comply with certain laws.

Foreigners shall not blaspheme the Name of the Lord (Lev. 24:16).

Foreigners shall not indulge in idolatrous worship (Lev. 20:2).

Foreigners shall not commit acts of indecency, such as homosexuality (Lev. 18:26).

Foreigners shall not eat the of blood of animals that had died a natural death or had been torn by wild beasts (Lev. 17:10, 15).

Foreigners shall not eat unleavened bread during the Passover (Ex. 12:19).

In consideration for obeying these laws, Gentiles were protected and tolerated.

Simply put, the Hebrews held dominion over strangers. They were not allowed to come into the land and trample on or overthrow the Hebrew culture.

And before entering Canaan, God commanded the Israelites:

Go in and possess the land
which the Lord God of your fathers gave to you.
Deuteronomy 4:1

In other words, God gave the Israelites dominion over Canaan. They were given rightful ownership of Canaan.

God gave the Pilgrims and Puritans dominion over America, and it is our inheritance as long as we are a righteous nation. But we will lose our inheritance if: 1) we turn our backs on God; He will take it away from us, or; 2) we ignorantly or knowingly allow pagans to dispossess us of our land.

However, nowhere does the Bible instruct us to allow pagans to rob our children of their Christian inheritance, including their right to Christian education in public schools.

In years past, school children sang patriotic songs, recited patriotic poems, celebrated American holidays, and so forth. Today, students are indoctrinated with globalist propaganda such as multicultural literature and songs; and students are not allowed to celebrate Christmas, Easter, and other American and Christian holidays. They are renamed “Winter Holiday,” “Spring Holiday,” and other secular days instead of their rightful celebration as holy days.

Many Christians have been deceived into believing the Bible teaches America must be ecumenical.

Listen…

The intent of ecumenism is to subvert or supersede Christianity.

This is the spirit of antichrist.

Children must be schooled in Biblical truths.

 

Martin Luther: Schools Without the Holy Scriptures are Wide Gates to Hell
 

Martin Luther felt strongly that no one should his child to a school where the Bible is not supreme…

I would advise no one to send his child where the Holy Scriptures are not supreme. Every institution that does not unceasingly pursue the study of God’s word becomes corrupt. Because of this we can see what kind of people they become in the universities and what they are like now. Nobody is to blame for this except the pope, the bishops, and the prelates, who are all charged with training young people. The universities only ought to turn out men who are experts in the Holy Scriptures, men who can become bishops and priests, and stand in the front line against heretics, the devil, and all the world. But where do you find that? I greatly fear that the universities, unless they teach the Holy Scriptures diligently and impress them on the young students, are wide gates to hell.

Alas, our public schools are wide gates to hell!

 

Suffer Little Children to Come unto Me

Just as God gave the ancient Hebrews the Promised Land to establish as a righteous nation, God gave our Christian forefathers the New Promised Land – America - to establish as a righteous nation. And our Founding Fathers were determined to found America on the Rock of Jesus Christ. In the hearts of our forefathers was a deep-seated reverence for Christian education, and they built schoolhouses for teaching the four R’s: Religion, Reading, ‘Riting, and ‘Rithmetic.

But infidels have worked tirelessly to transform America from a Christian nation into an idolatrous nation. And one of their devilish tactics has been to subvert or supersede Christianity in our public schools. The United States Supreme Court’s ruling in Engel v. Vitale and subsequent public-school cases shows the spirit of antichrist that seeks to rob our children of their Christian heritage, including a public Christian education. Instead, public schools indoctrinate students with multiculturalism, another name for polytheism; and devilishly incite children to rebel against Christianity as the only true religion.

Martin Luther was right: Schools without the Holy Scriptures are wide gates to hell.

We can no longer turn a blind eye to the moral devastation of America as a result of antichrist public education: suicide, drugs, school massacres and other violent acts, illegitimate births, and other rebellion against God.

America must be moral again. And you cannot separate morality from religion.

The Bible must be restored to its rightful place in our public schools.

Listen…

Suffer little children to come unto me” has an authority which no one can supersede, not even the United States Supreme Court.

Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14
