Dobson: Christians need mass exodus from public schools
Mar. 30, 2017 - James Dobson, considered by many to be the most influential advocate of Christian family life in our generation, takes
a bold stand against the results of public education. He warns that Christians are losing the next generation because ...
"...largely, of the anti-Christian influences of public schools... for six hours a day, 180 days a year for 12 or 13 formative years.
They’re exposed to LGBT teachings, evolution, a revisionist form of American history, Islam and worse.
Dobson believes that the 2016 election is a “reprieve” for Christians--an opportunity to include homeschooling or Christian schools.

Barna detects dangerous breach in the wall
Mar, 17, 2017 - Pollster George Barna reveals that only four percent of America's more than 75 million Millennials have a biblical worldview.
Polls show that only 4% of Millennials, those reaching young adulthood around the year 2000 and later, have a biblical worldview. Barna says:
"It's important that Christian families have worldview conversations – early and often – because "the worldview that you have at the age 13
is essentially the worldview that you die with."
Unfortunately, the parents of Millennials may not have a biblical worldview either, so grandparents may need to lead those conversations.

School flips policy banning flyers for Bible study
Jan, 18, 2017 - In Leavenworth, Washington, a public school had not allowed the distribution of flyers inviting students inviting students to attend
Good News Clubs. The Child Evangelism organization showed school officials a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court that affirms the same rights
as is given to any other non-school-related outside group, such as the Boy Scouts.
“The Cascade School District made the appropriate decision to eliminate the unconstitutional policy and recognize that the Good News Club
has equal access to students,” said Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel.
