Modern USA reflects godless education

By James Lee Elliott | Sep 15, 2016

To the editor:

As another school year is starting in Iowa, and throughout this nation, we the people are witnessing the fact that this nation’s public educational ship is sinking and until the chairs on the deck are rearranged public education in America will continue to deteriorate.

Just when we think that things can get no worse, political correctness in America hits a new low. The original intent for public education in America was public school not government schools.

This nation’s 40th President told us that. “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

There is a terrible darkness falling upon this land, and American families are being denied their most basic rights. Evil left unchecked is the prelude to a dictatorship more terrible than anything ever witnessed on this earth. When books are burned, they will in the end, burn people, too.

It is time that “We the people” of America became educated about our leaders, take this nation back and make America great again!

There is a time for every activity under the sun, and it’s not for us to choose our times, but we must be ready when they come. We can not continue to sit back on our pews and sing a little louder in order to drown our the cries for help in this nation.

We must break free and tell the truth, as only those who help each other and build true friendships and alliances will stay strong enough to help others survive. We must not enter any room, situation, or experience without God or we expose ourselves to being reprogrammed.

Any hope founded upon faith in man or woman made philosophy, institutions, ideals, values, interpretations or false views of America become misguided, unreliable and unaccountable. Fairfield, Iowa and all of America is suffering the consequences of what happens when right becomes wrong and wrong becomes right in our public schools.

Our Founding Fathers knew that this nation could not survive as a republic without a broad program of general education teaching the fundamentals of reading, writing, ciphering, history, geography and Bible study.

Noah Webster, who was called the “Schoolmaster to America,” wrote: Any system of education, which limits instruction to arts and sciences and rejects the aids of religion in forming the characters of citizens, is essentially defective.

Twenty-first Century America is witnessing the result of public education without the Bible:

Noah Webster understood that students (our children, grandchildren and all future generations of Americans) are capable of much more than what is believed today. History constantly shows that if we raise expectations, students will rise to meet them; but if we lower expectations, they will also meet them.

Jesus was 12 when he confounded the doctors of the law. Luke 2: 41-49. We must now complete the mission that we have been assigned no matter where we go or wherever it takes us.
