Sweden Bans Home-schooling, Religious Instruction
The Kingdom of Sweden took a dramatic turn toward totalitarianism with the adoption of a sweeping new education ‚Äúreform‚ÄĚ package that essentially prohibits home schooling and forces all schools to teach the same government curriculum.

The draconian 1,500-page law ‚ÄĒ deceptively referred to by the Swedish government as ‚ÄúThe new Education Act - for knowledge, choice and security‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ was approved by Parliament last week amidst strong criticism and opposition. When it goes into effect next year, the entire educational system will be transformed, and alternative education abolished.

So-called ‚Äúindependent schools,‚ÄĚ already financed and largely controlled by government, will now have to submit to the same regulatory framework as regular government schools. They will also be required to follow state-issued syllabi and curricula. ...

Does God Have a Future for Israel?: A Study of Romans 11, also means that He does have a plan for the Jews.

There are not mnay here who are Lutheran, and I might remind John Y., Luther no doubt picked up a lot of his antisemitism from the Roman Catholic church, just like Adolph Hitler did.

As I've always said all the good Swedes have already immigrated to America. The Swedish government consists of idiots getting cozy with Muslims. Considering one of those Muhammadans killed a Swedish PM. No, Jews are not having an easy time in Sweden, especially in Malmo, q.v., Standing Down the Hanging Jury.

That may be so, john, but Luther didn't stop there later in his career:
Luther & Antisemitism
It is one thing to condemn their unbelief; quite another, to call for civil persecution as he did in "The Jews and their Lies" & his counsel to civil authorities. Something or someone pushed his buttons, apparently, & he went bananas.

There's no need to seek approval to educate your own children given to you by God.

At least in America the Constitution doesn't say anything about public schools. They are illegal and you don't have to seek permission to educate your own children.

Neil, paul didn't call on christian's to murder jews he warned us that(at least for now) they are the enemies of the gospel and they are under the curse of God. 2000 years of history has shown that they are still very busy trying to undermine and destroy the church and the testimony of the gospel.To think otherwise is very naive at best!

See, this is exactly what I mean. Swedish Christians under persecution---doesn't register in my playbook, ok, let's talk about Luther instead.

john, I fail to see how 1 Thess 2 can possibly imply "Christian" antisemitism. Nowhere does Paul prescribe retaliation against Jews who persecuted Christ or the early Church, let alone against their descendants (if indeed modern Jews are in fact descended from those of the 1st Century, which is a very thorny genealogical problem. Kohen DNA doesn't count since it isn't Biblical).

How "Christians" over the centuries could miss this very simple inference from Christ's & Paul's teaching is a testament to human mental depravity. Jews (nominal or real) are our neighbors; logically therefore, it is the Christian's duty to render them peaceful & just treatment, regardless of what their alleged ancestors did.

Believers should be training their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, not "schooling" them regardless of place. No need to seek approval from the heathen to raise children, for God has already given it. Therefore, it doesn't matter what the heathen have to say about it, though it may only matter to the heathen who are lorded over.

I am sure the legal fight for homeschooling in Sweden is not yet over.

However Sweden is one of 27 EU countries. The Christian homeschoolers may very soon wish to avail themselves of their legal right to live and work and in any one of the other 26 member countries... or elsewhere - unless the evangelicals elsewhere manage to put an end to immigration as some seem intent on doing.

Tend to agree with Neil on some of the historical roots of the problem. For me, yes Lutheranism, unreformed sacral-state Romanism, Erastianism. Folks now reject the Bible but still want to control the consciences of everybody else. The collective mindset of national thought control lingers on, very ready to be exploited by atheistic socialist political compulsion.

Thanks Neil for pointing out luther's errors . It's too bad you weren't around back then to do it right. As for the jews you might want to read 1 Thess.2:14-16

This law is actually historically consistent in one respect, since it was Martin Luther who set the precedent of compulsory, state-controlled education. While unlike modern Scandanavia & Germany in that his purpose was benign (Biblical literacy), the philosophical & political implications were not.

This, along with Erastianism & his animus towards Jews, was one of his errors.

I thought that Sweden was a predominantly Lutheran nation with a Lutheran Church-State type of government?
