America is rapidly becoming more and more secular as opposed to Christian. Why?
More than 50 million children a day (K-12) are being indoctrinated in schools with secular philosophy that teaches God does not exist or at best that He is irrelevant to life. We currently have between 4-6 million children (K-12) in Christian schools or Christian home schools in America. This means that approximately 90% of the children in America are being trained to think from the perspective of a godless worldview. Is it any wonder that America finds herself in such a desperate moral condition?
Almost all textbooks used in non-Christian schools are written from a secular perspective. Secularism is presented as the only accurate worldview supported by science, when in reality, it is essentially a religious philosophy that cannot be proven scientifically. Yet, the study of modern psychology, biology and social science hinges on acceptance or rejection of secular thought.
- God does not exist so there is no need to consider Him.
- We are all here through pure chance.
- If there is any hope to be found, it will be found within science.
- There is no God who loves us or created us.
- Religion is for the weak and ignorant.
- Religion and science are opposed to each other.
- Science is based on fact while religion is based on fear, faith and ignorance.
- Morality is relative. What is wrong for you may not be wrong for me.
- There is no absolute standard of right and wrong since there is no absolute lawgiver.
- The Bible is full of errors and completely untrustworthy.
The college atmosphere becomes even more aggressively anti-Christian.
The late secular Professor of Philosophy, Richard Rorty, said: “Parents who send their children to college should recognize that as professors ‘we are going to go right on trying to discredit you in the eyes of your children, trying to strip your fundamentalist religious community of dignity, trying to make your views seem silly rather than discussable.”
After 13-15 years of hearing the same secular message, many young people lose the ability to believe in the faith of their childhood. Some studies suggests that nearly 80% of Christian young people who attend a secular college abandon their Christian faith for all practical purposes by the time they graduate.
In England, where Secularism has prevailed, 97% of the population no longer attends church.
America is rapidly following in England’s footsteps and unless the foundational philosophies of our current educational system are reversed, it is not a question of “if” – it’s only a question of “when” America will become a completely secular nation.
The battle for the soul of America is being fought in the arena of worldviews. The classroom has become the #1 battlefield!
“It has been the error of the schools to teach astronomy, and all the other sciences, and subjects of natural philosophy, as accomplishments only; whereas they should be taught theologically, or with reference to the Being who is the author of them: for all the principles of science are of divine origin. Man cannot make, or invent, or contrive principles: he can only discover them; and he ought to look through the discovery to the Author.” – Thomas Paine
