"With Christ there is always hope, but currently I don’t see any indication that that will happen. In fact, the institutions of our culture — the public school system, the media, our universities, politics, corporate America, the judiciary — all are perpetuating the acceptance of ungodly practices such as same-sex marriage and euthanasia."
— AmTalibangelist Voddie Baucham, Jr., the self-proclaimed "evangelist to intellectuals."
Serving them up fresh each and every day. This guy is an elder at Grace Community Church in Magnolia, Texas and an adjunct professor at The College of Biblical Studies in Houston, Texas. He’s concerned about the godless influence of the public schools. And of course has to tie the recent supreme court decision supporting a choice made twice by Oregon citizens about doctor assisted suicide to the <gasp> homosexual agenda.
When you understand multi-generational faithfulness, it’s an idea that completely changes how you view cultural impact. I can look at influencing the culture by going out and getting the right legislation passed or the right person on the school board — and there’s nothing wrong with those things — but the bigger picture of cultural impact is me being a Godly husband and father. So as I am training my children and at the same time part of a larger community of faith that is doing the same, we are equipping a generation, not just to pass good laws, but to be transformed people.
In my opinion, this is what makes the home-school movement so important. Because you are getting children out of the public school system that has them for 45-50 hours a week and inundates them in this anti-Christian, secular humanistic mentality and into a situation where discipleship is the key to their education. It’s only here that multi-generational faithfulness can take place.
Baucham earns bonus points for sponsoring a resolution at the Southern Baptist Convention to investigate "the influence of the homosexual agenda in the nation’s public schools." He said the public schools needed to be researched to unearth "attempts to influence children to accept homosexual behavior as a legitimate lifestyle."
“Those schools have violated a sacred trust,” he said. “Under the guise of ‘tolerance’ and ‘safe sex,’ they are teaching our children that biblical truth is at best outdated, and at worst intolerant.
“They are teaching our children to embrace the sinner and the sin. In fact, they are teaching our children that the Bible is wrong to call homosexuality a sin (or denying that the Bible does so at all).
“Moreover, they are teaching our children that homosexuality is a viable alternative to the covenant of marriage. And most parents are completely unaware.”
He’s a real card, isn’t he? And this is cute:
Last year at the Pastors Conference, Baucham said: “I understand that, as a black man in America, people won’t call me a narrow-minded bigot. Membership has its privileges.”
Sorry, we changed our minds. Your membership is revoked — Narrow. Minded. Bigot.
