Do You Really Understand?

Mar 21, 2019

“Do you really understand?”

I find myself saying that a lot lately.  It is amazing to me how many people have their head stuck in the sand.  I’m not sure whether it is deliberate, or if they really don’t get it.

Ignorance is bliss, or so they say.  But it really isn’t.  Ignorance is dangerous.  The Bible tells us that ignorance is one of the main reasons that people perish.

But some folks really have no excuse and I really don’t understand it.  How can so many seemingly-bright people be so far off base?

Better yet, how can so many Christians be so deceived?  How can so many Christians not understand?  How can the one group of people who are supposedly enlightened by the Holy Spirit be walking in such deception?

“Do you really understand?”

My heart aches because I just spent another day as a speaker in a suburban high school in the Columbus, Ohio area.  I usually roll with the punches pretty well and I love the give and take that the mind -invigorating exercise affords me.

But today was different.  Today left me with a tension headache.  I am hoping that writing this screed will ease the thumping in my temples.  I have had several conversations since I got home and I find myself asking the same question to everyone I speak with in my attempt to explain the plight I just navigated through.

“Do you really understand?”

The harsh truth is…they don’t.  They don’t understand or they would never put up with it.  Neither do most of you reading this.  You don’t really understand either.

So, let me lay it on the line.

Our public schools are a moral wasteland.  Any hope of rescuing this nation is rapidly draining away.   Any standard of ethical belief is oozing out of the body.

There is no longer a right and wrong in America’s public schools.  They have been Balkanized.    Morality has become merely personal.  Right and wrong is no longer based on a standard, but is left to the whims of the individual.

Sorry Superman, but there is no longer any such thing as “truth, justice, and the American way.”  Truth has become an opinion.  What is right for you may not be right for me.  As long as you feel OK about your decisions then what does it matter what others think.

“Who are you to judge me?” they ask.  “How do my choices and my decisions impact you?  What does it matter what I do with my own body?  Who are you to tell me what I can and can’t do?”

Do YOU really understand?  YOU.  The reader.  Do you really understand how bad it is?

The failure of the local church is so evident when you walk into the classroom.  Appearances can be so deceptive.  There used to be a time when you could get a “feel” for a student based on appearance or attitude.  But today there really is very little difference.  The Christian kids look, speak, and act just like everyone else.

They have their morality but, for the most part, it is no different than the non-Christian kid sitting next to them.  Neither one of them believe in a universal standard of right and wrong.  “I’m ok, you’re ok,” and Jesus loves all of us anyway…so who am I to judge.”

We are losing America.  In fact, it may already be lost.  The kids in the classroom have parents who are in their forties.  I am old enough to be their grandfather.  We have very little in common when it comes to a universal standard of right and wrong.  As the Scripture’s warn us, “when there was no King in Israel everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”

Christ is no longer King in America because he is no longer King in the church.  There is no way that a church could be teaching Bible Truth to the congregation and produce classrooms full of children who have no universal understanding of right and wrong.

I guess that is why they call it multi-cultural.  No right and wrong.  Everyone choosing how they will live.  No obligation to your neighbor.  No fealty to the Truth of Christ.  A mosh pit of mushy morality…saltless Christian children sitting in the sewer.

Do you really understand how bad it is?

America’s pastors have failed us.  Most speak glowingly of their local “public” schools and “wonderful” teachers indoctrinating the children in doctrines of demons.  There is nothing Christian about our educational system.

The secularists run the schools.  Christianity is mocked.   Real Christian children are ostracized.  All with your tax dollars.  All on your dime.  Teaching your children things you would never teach them in your own home.

Education is a national emergency.  Children are taught to FEEL not to learn.  No wonder AOC is so popular.  She looks just like America.  She represents the values taught in America’s government schools.

Get your kids out of the public hell holes.  The value-less indoctrination they provide is undermining our nation.   If your pastor supports the schools then find a new church.  They are institutions of lower living…undermining everything you have tried to instill in your offspring.  SELF makes a pretty poor god.

America cannot survive amoral education.  Do you still have your children in public schools?  Are your grandkids there?

Then you really don’t understand.
