The Indoctrination strategy of The New Age Movement is terribly affecting countries and Christianity today.
We discussed Strategy #1 in part 3. Let us continue:
Strategy #2. REDUCE PARENTAL AUTHORITY OVER THE CHILDREN
This strategy is aimed at breaking the communication between parent and child so that parents do not pass on their Christian traditions to their children. It is meant to liberate children from the bondage of their parents’ traditions and Christianity.
How do they do this?
a) They promote excessive child rights; (in 1997-1998 South Africa introduced Child rights legislation – UNICEF Charter).
Today, a child is able to say to his/her parents “I do not want to hear that, I do not want to do what you are telling me.”
Children tell teachers “I have my rights, you cannot talk to me like that”.
b) Abolish corporal punishment (this has been made law).
Children in the US and other Western countries are taught to call 911 when their parents and teachers spank them. 911 is an invitation to the police. When the police arrive, they inspect the children’s bodies; any scare or wound will make the parents forfeit their children to the social welfare.
On the other hand the Bible says ‘Do not withhold correction from a child, for if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. You shall beat him with a rod and deliver his soul from hell.’ (Proverbs 23: 13-14)
c) Teachers are the agents of implementation of this Indoctrination The New Age Movement indoctrination agents organize workshops for teachers to tell children that their parents have no right to force them to pray or read the Bible; that they are themselves, that they have rights of their own; that they need to discover themselves; that they must express themselves, realize themselves and fulfill themselves. In the West children are taught that they have a right to choose whether they want to follow the faith of their parents or not, parents are not allowed to enforce their faith upon them.
*Question is, what type of decision can a child make as far as faith is concerned?
I believe my readers have started deciphering where the problem of the world is coming from. The rejection of Christianity by the West is a catalyst to the blindness of the world. The gropes today. The world has no focus.
The fact is that the Second Advent of our LORD Jesus Christ is at hand. Be ready.
Watch out for Strategy #3, in part 5.
