‘the danger of our children being educated by fools’

“the fool hath said in his heart, there is no God”

I receive The Voice of the Martyr’s daily devotional, Extreme Devotion. These daily devotions are filled with stories of courage, commitment, confession, and compassion—a price demanded; a price paid.

It is an excellent resource for keeping the church in America aware of the systematic suppression that is waged against Christianity throughout all the world and the plight of the persecuted church as they simply live their life for Christ.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters that are in the midst of the fire!

“One day the teacher told us that we would play a special game. She whispered to us about a special book that our parents may have hidden in our homes. We were to wait until our parents went to sleep, search for this book, and secretly bring it to school the following day for a special surprise. I went home and immediately began searching for the book.

    “The next day I was one of fourteen children who brought the black book, a Bible, to class. We were awarded bright red scarves, and the other students clapped as the teacher paraded us around the room.
    “I ran home that afternoon because I was so excited to tell my mother how I had won the red scarf. She wasn’t in the house or the barn. I waited, but neither she nor my father came home, and I began to get scared. I was hungry and it was becoming dark. I began to feel sick inside, and I fell asleep in a chair.
    “The next day police officers came and informed me that I was now in the care of the government. I never saw my parents again.”
    An elderly woman from North Korea relayed this story. She never heard from her parents and is still struggling to find forgiveness. She is only one of many who have gone through such trials.

Contrary to a popular caricature, the devil does not appear in a red suit, poised with a pitchfork. We would easily recognize such an obvious overture to evil. However, like the child in this story, we often come across him in a different light. The enemy representatives are often impressive people in high places. Consider the influence of a smooth-talking business partner. Or imagine the power a university professor wields in the name of academia. As the child in this story discovered, the enemy plays dirty. We must put away naiveté and be on guard against the enemy wherever we come across him and his representatives. Are you easy prey for the enemy? Or will he find you alert and on guard?

We are constantly being told today that it is unconstitutional for the government or the public schools to promote ‘religion’. And with this  political verbiage a prayer-less church has been undermined by the wiles of the devil as we have sat by and watched this seeming promotion evolve into an obstruction, and that with absolutely no consideration for one’s constitutional rights.

Now those of us who keep up with this vehement suppression of Christianity in our society, realize the issue is not about religion at all.  The real crux of the matter is this Jesus Christ.

When the children of a nation are indoctrinated by a foolish system, there is a real good chance that the product of that system will be immersed in foolish thinking and that not in the wisdom of God.

Our brothers and sisters in North Korea are still faced with vehement opposition. Please remember them as you live in the comfort of your American Christianity.

‘looking for love in all the wrong places?’

Looking for love in all the wrong places? Why not consider this love….

Greater love hath no man than this, that he would lay down his life for a friend!

He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. And he must needs go through Samaria. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw……

……  Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
