In this episode Pastor Sam and Patrick "No Compromise with Humanism" Wyett discuss how humanism used the education system as the vehicle for to disseminate their ideology. If you were wondering what the vehicle was to move America from a Christian nation to secular state this podcast explains exactly how it happened through humanism and how humanism targeted the education system and children's TV shows to push their ideology and move the nation's moral compass away from Biblical ethics.
Situation ethics replaced God's codified morality and by capturing the youth the humanists own our future if we do not do something about it. Take heart God's word has the answers and they are presented in this podcast
The abrupt transition from a Christian-based worldview was made possible by a 1912 mandate from Franklin Knight Lane, Secretary of the Interior, to fundamentally restructure the American education system for the 20th century. Lane believed that modern children, and thus the greater society, would no longer be needing Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Up to this point, education in America had been taught from a Christian perspective. Textbooks had ranged from the Bible-based “New England Primer,” Noah Webster’s “Blue-Backed Spellers,” the “McGuffey Readers,” and the Bible itself. In fact, all early American institutions of higher learning had their start as Christian schools. As example, Yale was founded in 1699 by 10 ministers. Harvard’s early mottos were “For the glory of Christ,” and “For Christ and the church.” Faith in God predominated in the United States, which then prospered under God’s blessings. That was then.
The new schools would teach secular humanism and related philosophies. Biblical “myths” were to be phased out, replaced by “science” and human reason. Dewey ally and signer of the Humanist Manifesto, Charles Francis Potter, published a book in 1930, titled, “Humanism: A New Religion.” The title is self-explanatory.
“Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday school, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teachings?” -- Charles Francis Potter, “Humanism: A New Religion,” page 128
“Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well by creating the international child of the future.” -- Chester M. Pierce, Harvard professor, psychiatrist, and humanist, speaking as an expert in public education at the 1973 International Education Seminar
Notice the linking of patriotism, legitimate authorities, nationalism, sovereignty, and Christianity together as signs of mental illness. Liberals hate these ideas because they are linked together in the unique experiment known as the United States of America. The importance of aligning with like-minded Christians is ever so important now.
Incidentally, Chester Pierce was a senior advisor on a pre-school children’s program that made its debut in 1969. Sesame Street.
Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next.
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles, it has now expanded into a podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
