The agenda for this new administration includes such things, as major gun control; laws to protect against “global warming” (lie that it is) which is greatly aiding the collapse of our economy; and the continued destruction of our U.S. military.

How could we have ever gotten into the position of housing an administration in the White House which is ashamed of America? — It started a long time ago…

In the 1830s a Massachusetts educator, by the name of Horace Mann, convinced the Massachusetts Legislature that they should begin to fund their public schools with tax dollars.  This opened the possibility for a few in government to control the minds of the next generation.  Though, because of our strong Biblical thinking in those days, it would take many years to change us very much.  But, with each generation being taught a little less Biblical thinking, by the early 1900s there would actually be a group of educators and a group of businessmen who believed they could control the world by controlling America.  The educators intended to do it by controlling the way children thought.  The businessmen intended to do it by controlling the flow of money in America.  By the 1920s these two groups had gotten together and were working for a socialistic and atheistic America.  We call it the “humanist” movement.

The businessmen were able to change our economic system in a major way by implementing high control in the economy.  Amazingly, they were able to do three major things in one year, 1913.  First they got Congress to approve the Federal Reserve Board that year.  This Board, which would have only these wealthy “Merchant Bankers” to serve on it, could control the economy by controlling the interest rates at which banks loaned money.  Then they got the 16th and 17th Amendments approved that year.  The 16th established a national income tax, which meant the government could now own your property if you didn’t pay the tax.  The 17th established the popular election of US Senators, which, by the original Constitution, had them elected by the State Legislatures.  This finished off the power of the states to keep the national government within its thirty delegated powers of the Constitution.  In effect, it assured the national government would control all government in America.   The plan to change America to atheism and socialism was well under way.

Some in the movement sincerely thought they could create a perfect world without God.  Others in the movement were just greedy for control.  One of the prominent leaders in the movement would be John Dewey, the father of America’s current education system.  Dewey was an atheist and a socialist who helped Stalin form the Communistic education system in Russia in 1928.  That system would keep generations in Russia enslaved to the Communist dictator.  He built the same system here; only the American Progressive education system had to be built with a gradual process in order to bring us to dictatorial government.  Our Biblical roots were still too deep to change us in the 1920s.  But there would be others who would work with him.  We’ll identify some of them next time.

The Bibles warns us of such evil men, who…

“…crept in unawares…ungodly men…denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

(Jude 4)

It is their purpose to stop the flow of the Gospel of Christ to the next generation.  John Dewey now knows very well how wrong he was.  But do you know?

Think about it; because if you don’t, someone else will do your thinking for you—
and for your children!  And you won’t like what that brings to you.  I’m Don Pinson this has been Think About It.
