Teaching right and wrong to be scrapped

T

Schools will no longer have to teach children the difference between right

and wrong according to changes in the National Curriculum.  The existing

aims to be scrapped include the instruction to ‘pass on the enduring values’

and to ‘develop principles for distinguishing right from wrong.’  Under the

new proposals this would be replaced with an aim which simply says children

should have ‘secure values and beliefs.’

 

Also to be scrapped is the requirement to help pupils discover a sense of

identity ‘through knowledge and understanding of the spiritual, moral,

social and cultural heritages of Britain’s diverse society.’  All reference

to Britain is dropped with the aim to help individuals ‘understand different

cultures and traditions and have a strong sense of their own place in the world.’

 

All of this ties in with a world wide programme to condition children for

the new global management system.  All sense of national identity must be

replaced with a global identity (‘a sense of their own place in the world’).

Traditional ideas of right and wrong based on God’s commandments must be

replaced with a consensus of shared values which are arrived at through a

process called ‘Values Clarification’.

 

Berit Kjos has written extensively on this subject on her website

www.crossroad.to .  She defines ‘Values Clarification’ as a process which

uses ‘facilitated dialogue to replace old beliefs and values (first) with

moral relativism and self-made choices, then (second) with new global

beliefs and values.  It shatters faith, destroys modesty, desensitises to

evil, and frees children to follow their feelings.’

 

‘To understand this planned rebellion against biblical values, look back to

1970. Education psychologist Dr. William Glasser had just pioneered a

"daring new programme" for changing attitudes. His book, Schools Without

Failure, introduced a manipulative strategy for turning the class into an

encounter and counselling group: Children would share their feelings and air

their complaints under the guidance of a trained facilitator with a

politically correct answer. They learned to empathize with another's lust

and respect each other's feelings. Soon, they had traded God's moral

standards for self-made choices. No longer would authoritarian parents

impose their values on submissive children. They would write their own

rules!’ (B Kjos, ‘Sex Education and Global Village’).

 

By this process education becomes a form of indoctrination which actually

does not scrap ideas of right and wrong but replaces ones based on Christian

values with humanistic ideas which always come down to a repeat of the first

question to be asked in the Bible ‘Hath God said?’  (Genesis 3.1).  Some of

the basic ideas of the thinking the education system seeks to inculcate on

what is right and wrong are these:

 

your truth and what I consider right may not be right for you.

 

of God.

 

is no preferred way to bring up children.

 

parent family of father and mother is the basic building block of society

for the bringing up of children.

 

monopoly on truth about God.

 

Jesus is the Messiah and Lord who meant it when he said, ‘I am the way the

truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except by me.’ John 14.6.

 

In this case Bible believing Christians are wrong on all counts.  But the

rotten fruit of this tree is apparent to anyone with any discernment.

Tragically the fruit is most obvious in the ruined lives of young people who

are taught to mock and reject the truth revealed by God.

 

Berit Kjos concludes her article: ‘Our children are not immune to the

world's seductive messages. Many hear the same tempting promises and the

alluring voices that others hear and follow. They, too, want friends and

fun. So when the tempting promises ring out day after day, week after week,

they start to sound both true and natural.  

 

Concerned about their spiritual safety, our Shepherd reminds them:

"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 12:2-3)

 

Unless we help our children build a mental framework and filter based on

biblical truth, the world's philosophies will probably squeeze them into its

mould. It takes discernment, diligence, and delight in God to stand firm in

His truth when friends choose to follow their feelings. But those who have

chosen to stand firm, wear His armour, trust His promises, and follow Him no

matter what, will be led by the Shepherd in a peace and triumph the world

can never understand.’
