When will this madness stop?

By Angela Wittman

Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:  That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. (Deuteronomy 6: 1, 2 KJV)

Dear Friends,

This morning I received a newsletter from a well-meaning conservative grassroots organization that seeks to influence our culture for good.  As I scrolled down the newsletter I came across this news item:

. . . * Good News! Illinois School Bans Simulated Sex at Dances Students complained to the school administration about their peers' sexually explicit "grinding dancing"... [Readers beware of sexually graphic content. AW].

Friends, please take heed to what I am about to tell you, as it is the truth.

In 1995 I was elected to our local school board and while my intention was to be an influence for good and to work with the administration, I soon found out that they were not willing to work with me due to my Christian beliefs and desire to see children taught morals.  In fact, the administration did all they could to silence and stop me because I and other parents were concerned about Planned Parenthood's materials being used in the sexual education curriculum and the amoral teaching students were receiving.

One evening I volunteered to help chaperon a student dance at the local high school. This was perhaps in the year 2000 as it was near the end of my term. My hope in volunteering was to be a godly influence on the staff and also to see how these types of school functions were conducted.  A local rock group was hired to entertain, and I found the members to be nice young men who mostly played soft rock music.  The other chaperone's were mostly staff members who had children at the dance.  For the most part, the students acted their age (young teens) and appeared to still have some reserve and modesty. However, there was a group of teens who when the lights were turned down, lost their inhibitions and simulated intimate sexual acts on the dance floor. Please take note that this event happened over 10 years ago.

Now here is my question to parents, conservatives and Christians who still have their children in the government schools:

When will this madness stop?

Why haven't you pulled your children out of the government schools? What are you waiting for?  How many young people from Christian homes have been diagnosed with sexually transmitted diseases? How many have purchased the morning after pill or hired the child-killers at Planned Parenthood to get rid of their "problem"?  The answer is too many!

Parents and pastors need to stop this madness by separating their children from the ungodly influence of the government schools.  Once they separate, they then need to teach others to do the same.

The author of the newsletter I received asks these questions:
[Emphasis in bold text is mine, AW]

If churches continue to fear the controversy of the culture in which we live, children will suffer now, and within a few years, the family unit will cease to exist for the majority of the citizens -- do Christians have concern for our neighbors, or do we only care about ourselves? We think we can shelter our own offspring (not really), but what about the kids next door? Don't they deserve our help?

Yes, the kids next door do need our help.  We must take the home school message to their parents.  We need to tell them what the government schools are teaching and just how bad it really is for their children.  We must stop wasting time and money with attempts of reforming an ungodly school system that is at war with Christian beliefs and who hates our Lord and Savior!

Christians, we are to be salt and light; we need to stop focusing on ourselves and take the glorious message of the Gospel to our neighbors, which includes discipleship:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach  all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28: 18-20, KJV)

Amen! Now let us go forth and bring an end to this present madness!

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ

Alzheimer's Disease, Adultery and God's Word

By Angela Wittman "When B. and I realized what we're dealing with and she understood what the situation is, she said to me… 'I know what I have. I know where it's gonna take me. Tell the story. Tell the truth,'" Gasby recounted.  In January, he spoke that truth — and let cameras into his home. It's a home he shares with his wife and his girlfriend, Alex Lerner, who also has a bedroom in the house and helps with B.'s care.  Yesterday morning I happened to catch the segment  Falling in love while caring for your spouse with Alzheimer's disease   that aired on CBS This Morning. . I watched in amazement as two men whose wives had Alzheimer's Disease (one wife is now deceased) openly discussed having adulterous relationships with other women. Is this now to become a new norm? These men and women feel they shouldn't be judged, and shockingly the news anchors interviewing them seemed to agree. My father has Alzheimer's Disease and w
