Flaws in government fall back on the church, as, divided, we have no voice. Many have mixed thoughts in voting for prayer in schools.
Do we want government to teach religion to our children? The next question being, "Which religion?" Once that's considered, "Absolutely not!" Then, why pay taxes for satanic literature offered in school libraries?
While some home school, others teach how to be in the world without being like the world. Still yet, most leave teachings to schools and church.
With God excommunicated from schools, what about children who'll otherwise never hear about Him? In fulfilling the Great Commission, aren't we accountable for them? God sacrificed His son for us. Couldn't we sacrifice to train our children instead of fearing what schools might teach?
Do we prefer our children sharing such things as the use of condoms or their faith in God? Whenever we give away their religious freedom, we'll always lose.
History gives evidence to the fall of government and society whenever God is cast aside. Wherever God isn't only allows room for Satan.
Perhaps government isn't qualified to be responsible for religious training. However, what we could vote is for all children to have the freedom to pray and express their faith. Men bled and died for that freedom.
Maybe the agenda of Prayer in Schools could be defined as freedom to follow our spiritual heritage ... freedom of speech, with liberty and justice for all.
God doesn't author confusion, just ask Him. United We Stand.
