"For the Commandment is a lamp; and the Law is light; and reproofs and instruction are a way of life."

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where [is] the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk [therein]. (Jeremiah 6:16 AV)

The goal of the humanistic education agenda is to pervert judgment and eradicate all reference to the Foundation of True learning, the Christian faith. If God and His Laws can be removed successfully from the public school curriculum, then “The state” can replace God and His Laws.

For years, the attack upon the public education system has raged on, with little or no objection from the Christian Community. It would seem as if they too have bought into the lie of “separation of Church and state”.

Sadly, this is the principle reason behind the erosion of the American education system.



When we carefully, and honestly research the establishment of this nation, and its education system, we find that the entire American experience was based upon God and His Holy Word, the Bible. Thomas Jefferson wrote to Dr. Benjamin Rush on April 21, 1803,

“My views... Are the result of a life of inquiry and reflection, and very different from the anti-Christian system imputed to me by those who know nothing of my opinions. To the corruption of Christianity I am, indeed, opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus Himself. I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished any one to be; sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others...”


Consider the impact of this statement. Jefferson declares here, to one of the most influential men of his time, Benjamin Rush, that he was dedicated to the precepts of the Holy Scriptures, in all areas of life. Jefferson was dedicated to the promotion of the Christian faith throughout his life, both publicly and privately.

In his March 4th, 1805 National prayer address, Jefferson prayed,

“Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will...

Endow with Thy Spirit of Wisdom those to whom in Thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy Law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth...suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen”

This astounding public address, admonished the people of America to be both thankful and obedient to the God of Heaven and Earth. It further establishes the indisputable fact that Thomas Jefferson never intended the precepts of the Holy Scriptures to be removed from any area of American life, especially the areas of government and education.
