Next Step: Common Core Mixes With Vacation Bible School.
My friend and I have come across some off-the-wall, scary, and seemingly outrageous things in our research about Common Core and the roots of it.
The roots go way back and all the way around the world; they also sprout off into different directions including a very surprising one: Religion.
Yes, you read that right, religion. There is a group out there that would love to somehow meld all of the major religions into one World Religion. I dare them to ask the Muslims to do this…but I digress.
See, if all the religions were melded and everyone sort of believed the same things there would be peace! No more wars in the name of the Lord. Or Allah, or whatever gods you might believe in.
Other than looking at these groups’ strange websites I haven’t run into anything concrete that is happening, other than some of these supposed Bible-believing Christian pastors who are becoming more and more “seeker friendly,” by removing the word “sin” from their message and even going so far as to remove the cross so as not to offend someone.
Now we circle back around to Common Core and World Education as outlined in Agenda 21.
There is now a Common Core-aligned Vacation Bible School curriculum.
In case you’re thinking, “Hey, isn’t VBS about teaching children the Gospel?” here is what Common Core says about that. From Caffeinated Thoughts:
“Jefferson County Public Schools has begun offering Common Core training to interested Vacation Bible School providers, enlisting the religious groups to help combat the “summer slide.”
The “summer slide.” Right. Apparently VBS is no longer about Jesus but instead about college and career readiness…perhaps they’ll have to pass a standardized test at the end of the week, too?
I don’t have much to say on this ridiculousness. I mean, if Jesus can’t encroach on public schools, than why can Common Core encroach on Jesus?
I imagine the backroom discussion going something like this: “Hey, let’s make sure that we keep God and the Bible out of public schools, institute a world education program that emphasizes evolution, and then turn around and ask the churches–the very institutions that hold up the Gospel which we so despise–to help us reach our indoctrination goal!”
Sounds about right.
