Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian Education & Scholarship, believed strongly that the religion of Christ is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed. God used Noah Webster to build the solid foundation of Christian education and scholarship in America, which can only be founded on the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God.
Fast forward nearly 100 years to meet John Dewey, the Father of Modern American “Progressive” Education. Dewey was an atheist, a humanist, and possibly more than anyone else laid the foundations of the current public school system that is destroying the foundations of our Christian heritage and the lives of millions of children. The state education system that indoctrinates millions of young minds and hearts every day into atheism, humanism, evolution, moral relevance, sexual immorality, and socialism – is the bad & rotten fruit of Mr. John Dewey. This anti-Christian and ungodly pagan indoctrination in the public schools is the root cause of the decline of Christianity and morality in America. If you think about it, the founder of today’s public schools, John Dewey, believed and taught and built state education on many lies, two of which are: there is no God and there is no soul.
Naturally, any educational system built on these two lies, along with a multitude of other lies, deceptions, and errors, would produce “bad” fruit – fruit that would poison the minds and hearts of numerous generations against God, against truth, against the Bible and the principles of the Kingdom of God, against morality, against the family and marriage. Jesus warned us to “beware” of such false prophets and false teachers who would come to us as sheep but who are inwardly ravenous wolves seek to deceive and destroy many. His advice to us, in fact, his commandment to every Christian, is to “beware” of them, to evaluate and judge them by their fruit, and if their fruit is bad, to not eat of its fruit. Such trees are good for nothing and should be cut down and thrown into the fire. Please read Matthew 7:13-20 and you will see that Jesus commands his disciples to enter by the narrow gate, for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. But small is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to life, and few are those who find it. We must choose today whom we will serve. We must choose the philosophy of education laid down by Jesus and the apostles and developed in America through Noah Webster – OR we passively do nothing and continue to be poisoned and deceived by chief false teacher, John Dewey, and his followers. The choice is ours, and the truth is, God will hold each parent responsible for what they do and do not do to educate their children for Christ.
