"You and I are faithful believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ,
that He is God, was God at the creation and came as a man to be the
redeemer of mankind. For us that is both a devotional truth and an
historical one. But to the non Christian member of the public square,
say the Muslim or the Jew, or the Seik, or the Bhuddist, there could
be only agreement that humans exist and somehow came about; that
Jesus, the man lived and died and was purported to have been
resurrected, spawning a world religion."
Well that certainly sounds like Houghton Mifflin's description of
the Gospel, stripped of all faith and omitting that Christian's
believe Jesus died for our sins. If CEAI believes Christianity should
be so restricted, why do they give a pass to the blatant proselytizing
filled with statements of faith?
Christian Educators claim they had no control over what the
textbook publishers did with their "suggestions" for the
Christian section. But they had every control over their defense of
Houghton Mifflin and their textbook, Across the Centuries. Even
now they could renounce comparative religion, ask TruthorFiction for a
rewrite, post a renouncement of Across the Centuries on their own
website, but they don't. Even now, our mainstream religious leaders
could have their endorsement of CEAI removed, but they don't. And our
children are left in the classroom reading about hateful Christians
and how to appreciate Muhammad and Allah.
– therefore, O shepherds,
hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, I am against the
shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to
cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall
feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their
mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.”
Rome fell because of the lethargy of its people. They became so
arrogant because of confidence in
knowledge that they didn't see it coming.
America, we are on our knees and we don't even know it. When our
own "Christian leaders"
do works such as this or endorse them, then what was once a great
nation of faith in Christ has become nothing but a mockery, in line
with the Episcopalian church ordaining a gay priest, leaving his
family for his lover. In fact, spiritually, the analogy is very
receive that swift strike to our neck, I propose we bow our heads, humble ourselves
and pray, especially for our children.
But take heart. God has also said:
“Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out. As
a shepherd seeks out his flock on the day he is among his scattered
sheep, so will I seek out My sheep and deliver them from all the
places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day….I will seek
what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken
and strengthen what was sick, but I will destroy the lusty and the
strong, and feed them in judgment.”
Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
