“Jesus Was Homeschooled Beginning at Age 12” – Biblical Proof that a Mass Exodus from Public Education is Needed

April 5, 2017

Last week I read an article describing Dr. James Dobson’s perspective on homeschooling and see a part of the endgame Betsy DeVos is seeking. Titled, “Dobson: Christians Need Mass Exodus from Public Schools”, the WND Exclusive article by Bob Unruh describes James Dobson’s reaction to the findings of Dan Smith from the Nehemiah Institute who determined that if only millennials voted in the 2016 presidential race, the results would have been 504 Electoral College votes for Hillary Clinton and 23 for Donald Trump.

“That shocked me,” Dobson said, noting the far-left agenda pursued by Clinton along with her scandals.

Dobson warned that Christians are losing the next generation.

“They been propagandized and given a philosophy that in many cases is contrary to Scripture and what we believe,” he said.

And how and where have they been propagandized? You guessed it: in “government schools!”

And it’s largely because of the anti-Christian influences of public schools, attended by many impressionable and unprepared Christian children 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.

E. Ray Moore of the Exodus Mandate, which encourages Christian parents to homeschool their children or put them in church-run Christian schools, offers Biblical solution to the problem: homeschooling!

“There’s a scriptural pattern,” Moore explained. “The Bible’s clear the Scripture assigns the education of children to the family with assistance from the church, not the government.

Even very young children are mean to each other in public school settings, he said, and many aren’t equipped to handle it.

Moore described the 2016 election as a “reprieve” for Christians, who now have time to correct the agenda of churches to include homeschool or Christian schools.

“If we don’t change the way we do education,” he said, “we’ll lose the country. I’m 73 and those coming behind us do not agree with their own parents.”

Moore said the Bible commands children to be raised in the Lord, and public schools in many ways are overtly hostile to faith. But 80 percent of evangelicals still subject their children to public school classrooms…

“We believe you can make a case with data that the main reason the culture and the next generation are turning away from traditional values, from the Gospel, from Christianity, is primarily because of the indoctrination of the public-school system,” Moore said.

Dobson and Moore noted that even Jesus was homeschooled until he was 12 years old.

In case you missed it, Betsy DeVos advocates legislation that would allow government funds to be used to help advance Dr. Dobson’s and Mr. Moore’s Exodus Mandate. Indeed, when it became clear that Mr. Trump would support the notion of accelerating the movement out of government schools and into sectarian schools as well as his support for anti-abortion legislation the evangelicals decided to support him despite his personal flaws and his obvious worship of the almighty dollar more than Almighty God.

I do agree with Mr. Moore on one point, though.. and that is this: “If we don’t change the way we do education we’ll lose the country.” I think we disagree strongly, though, on the kinds of changes that we need to make.
