Homeschoolers have won a round in the long fight against the crackdown on family rights contained to the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child, but experts say they need to keep up their guard.
The conflict had arisen over legislation that was proposed in the United Kingdom, called the Children, Schools and Families Bill, that would have set into law many of the provisions and issues demanded by the U.N. plan.
However, according to a report from the Home School Legal Defense Association, that proposal for now has been dropped. The British government's Department of Children, School and Families said it was tabling the plan because "no agreement could be reached between government and opposition parties."...
1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. 2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. 3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. 5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: 6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever: 7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners: 8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous: 9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. 10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
But perhaps there are some who want to return to Popery, princes and compulsion in religion? or perhaps the ways of Islam?
"The convention, which is not yet ratified in the United States but has been adopted by numerous other nations, orders that children can choose their own religion with parents only having the authority to advise them"
Observations:- 1. Whilst I am under no illusions as to the evil nature of the intent of this 'convention', be careful what you wish for, work for and what you oppose! 2. Personally speaking I was converted at 17, technically still a minor in my non-believing parents home. What a glorious Saviour! 3. Christians should stand in principle FOR religious liberty and against the imposition of religion. 4. Consider the success of evangelistic Sunday schools and other children's missions over the past 400 years. We need to be careful that we do not oppose such liberty to preach the gospel to all. 5. I believe in the gospel liberty to proclaim the gospel to every child from every Roman Catholic, Moslem, Hindu, Mormon, JW, Sikh, (you name it) family as God gives opportunity. 6. Christians should support children who come to Christ yet live in unbelieving homes. They may pay for it with their lives! 7. Teach and train your own children to know, believe and defend the faith from the earliest age. Believe that Christ will give them the words to say.
Let this be a wake up call for the older generation who remembers things as they were. The UN goals are being carried out incrementally before our eyes, and do we really want our grandchildren in their hands?
""adopted by numerous other nations, orders that children can choose their own religion with parents only having the authority to advise them, the government can override a parent's decision regarding a child if a social worker disagrees, a child has a right to a government review of every parental decision""
Big Brother Government is still trying to take the child away from the parents, and destroy family and marriage.
Another insidious attack by Satan using politicians and bureaucrats.
