Lambs to the Slaughter

   Bryce and I have been reading a book this week called Like Lambs to the Slaughter: Your Child and the Occult, by a woman named Johanna Michaelsen. If you have never heard of her, she is a former occultist, now a born again believer, who in the 30+ years since she left the occult has devoted her time to studying current trends and occult practices in order to warn and equip the church in these last days.  I would highly recommend reading this book, even if you don't have kids. You can get it on Amazon for $0.01! Because of her knowledge and previous experience in the occult, she has some incredible insight into how the education system, books, television, movies, and so on have become a hunting ground for children, and youth's, minds and hearts.
   Today I'm only focusing on the education system. I realize that this is a very sensitive subject with people, but, can't be ignored. Don't misunderstand me, I am not trying to insinuate that all teachers have an occultic or socialist agenda in the classroom. Myself having been a teacher, with a degree in Education, I realize that there are a large number of teachers that genuinely love working with children, and have innocently invested themselves in a teaching career. The purpose of my post today is simply to bring some thoughts to light regarding the underlying purposes of the public education system by those who founded it, how it has been used for religious and political purposes, and what the Lord has to say about it.
   Through slow and subtle changes in the education system over the years, our society's children have fallen prey to a very deliberate "dumbing down." They are being brainwashed and programmed to become an easily managed and manipulated society that will accept a totalitarian global governance system. Most are not aware that these changes are not just happening now, but have already happened, and been in place for quite some time. Think about it. We see in the news all the time now about elementary school children who have been punished by their schools for ridiculous things, such as while a boy was eating his sandwich it "looked like a gun," or a student had a folded piece of paper in her pocket that was "shaped like a gun." What are these children being taught through this? That guns are BAD. That they (civilians) aren't, or shouldn't be, allowed to have guns. Why? I'll let you decide. To me, it's an obvious symptom to spot of the diseased ideology that is epidemic in the school system. And we didn't get to this point of ridiculousness overnight. There is so much that could be said on this, but Charlotte Iserbyt says it all better than I could in this video of an interview done on The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America. It starts out a little slow, but don't quit on it!
   Another scary indoctrination happening in the schools is the teaching of occultic practices in the classroom. The two seemingly separate issues (the religious and global governance agendas) are not mutually exclusive. They work hand in hand. In the first chapter of Like Lambs to the Slaughter, Michaelsen warns of the connection. 
We are raising a generation of children to be psychics, shamans, mediums and occultists- a generation of children for for whom there are no absolutes, no right or wrong, no morals, no allegiance to government or family. This generation of children is being carefully groomed to believe that Christianity is a dead, empty, irrelevant religion that is bigoted and narrow-minded; a religion to be feared and despised, for it stands in the way of the ushering in of the great New Age of "harmony" and "unity" and "peace." We have a generation of children carefully being programmed to understand the imperative for a one-world government, a one-world ruler, and a one-world religion. These children, soon to be adults, will at the right time "intuitively" grasp the importance of taking final Luciferic Initiation in order to enter the "New Age."
  Children are being attacked by deception from multiple angles, for ultimately the same goal. And not by accident. If New Age deception has been able to penetrate the Church, it stands to reason that it would even more easily and blatantly be permeating a secular system. Marilyn Ferguson, who authored the well-known New Age book The Aquarian Conspiracy, among other books, was clearly proud of the success rate of the infiltration into the schools. On page 35 of Lambs to the Slaughter we read:
A great deal of effort is going into luring teachers into the New Age perspective - what prominent New Age author Marilyn Ferguson calls "personal transformation." Ferguson points out that "tens of thousands of classroom teachers, educational consultants and psychologists, counselors, administrators, researchers, and faculty members in colleges of education have been among the millions engaged in personal transformation." She boasts that "of the Aquarian Conspirators surveyed, more were involved in education than in any other single category of work."
Just a little further ahead on the next page Michaelsen shares:
Those who don't go along with the program will eventually find themselves "phased out." As the NEA has pointed out "...teachers who conform to the traditional institutional mode are out of place. They might find fulfillment as tap-dance instructors, or guards in maximum security prisons or proprietors of reduction salons, or agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation...but they can damage teaching, children, and themselves by staying in the classroom."
While students are being indoctrinated with meditation, visualization techniques, yoga, and so forth in their classrooms, the teachers are being trained (and usually unaware of it) to accept and embrace these techniques. And if you, as a teacher, don't, then run the risk of being phased out. The prognosis doesn't look good, for either the children or the teacher that refuses to jump on the bandwagon. While obviously not all teachers sit around thinking of ways to corrupt their students, there are plenty of those who develop the programs, and set the policies, that have a definite agenda. Unfortunately, many are unwittingly falling under their influence. Those who do know what they are doing are often referred to as "change agents." (Charlotte Iserbyt talks about them some in the above video. She attended a change agent training seminar for the purpose of exposing what is happening.) Change agents are nothing new in the schools. In fact, Like Lambs to the Slaughter was published in 1989 I believe, so as you can see, these goings ons have been going on for a very long time. Michaelsen writes,
In recent years, however, change agents are gathering around the country to discuss the best methods available to them for smuggling occult techniques and philosophies into the classroom. Their goal, as stated by one teacher at a New Age seminar: "To help the children get in touch with their divinity. These things are crucial to our evolution." 
And this was back in the 80's! There is a TON more information regarding how this has come to be, but I don't think you want me to quote several chapters to you. I guess you'll just have to read the book. Ha! ;) This article that I came across the other day, Training Children to Thank a Goddess, was also an interesting read. And very short, I promise.
   Lastly, I wanted to share this video. I, personally, believe that homeschooling is the Biblically supported method of training and educating our children. Voddie Baucham gives an excellent presentation from the same view, with a great deal of Scripture to support it. Even if you don't agree, I really hope you take the time to give it a chance and watch it all the way through.

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Romans 12:2

"O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledgeby professing it some have strayed concerning the faith." 1 Timothy 6:20, 21
