Why Jews Don't Believe In Jesus

I believe it will be parents like you that correct the mess we have made of our children education. Sorry public school teachers. Parents need to speak up via their vote to tell politicians that NCLB is in fact leaving many child behind and is not the answer. I was a teacher for almost 30 years but at the high school level where homework was the norm.

This topic is an important one that relates to the qualtiy of the school day and education for life. I have been following the news on the Chicago teacher strike and am myself very much in sympathy with them. Teachers have been dealing with very different and very stressful demands under the No Child Left Behind mandate and are now facing even more stringent requirements regarding testing.

Some of your readers are teachers — equally concerned with offering your children a quality education—but their hands may be tied. If you really want to make an impact, you should be directing your concerns to the school board, the administration, the Department of Education, The President, etc. Heather, and all the readers—where do you stand with the Chicago teachers? Do you see the connection? Tracy, Very well said! I agree with you about those who berate the education system are not well educated.

Most of the time the homework requirements are not up to the teacher, but a higher level of authority. I strongly believe the teachers hands are tied. So those children that do excel are hindered, because of those that do not. I loved reading this article. My son has just started secondary school. He is supposed to get between 45 minutes to 1 and a half hours a day homework. He finishes at 3. He wants to do this as then home time is home time.

He wants to come home and do what he wants. I like this idea too. I think it would have been helpful for him to have had 10 minutes homework a day in his last year of junior school.

My girls both have their own variety pack of special needs. Homework was always such a struggle! Without homework, the girls were free to LEARN at home they were not learning anything from the homework! She spent 5 hours in a classroom with my daughter, which allowed her to hear her answers to questions as well as see all her written work IN class!

Based on grade 4 40 minutes per day guidelines gak 7 days per week that would be 4 hours and 40 minutes of work. We have been home-learning for 3 years now. My girls are loving those clubs and lessons and sports that they missed out on in their early elementary years.

I have the pleasure of watching my children grow and learn and take JOY in their educational pursuits! One has discovered a passion for ancient history, and spends hours each week on that alone. The other daughter is into all things science, especially geology and botany. One day in the middle of summer…. I can see with that much homework I would agree with you.

He has english once a week that should take no more than 25 minutes and maths similar. So we have chance to do that over the weekend my 6 year old daughter has maths for about 15 mins and some spellings so they sit together and do it as well as all the very important things you describe. Definitely in favour of free play, plus we read daily, my son has music practice, we all eat together and bed is 7. You would be surprised how many parents actually WANT their children to have homework!

My kids work hard the whole day and they need time to be a kid. Thanks for sharing this. I wonder as your children grow if it will change. I too, used to complain about their homework at such a young age. However, with age, comes wisdom. I know my views now are very different now than when first one started school. That is not enough time to teach them what they need to learn.

There are so many distractions in class that it can be challenging to teach everything in such a short span of time. I believe homework is essential. The American work ethic has become way too lazy! The upcoming generations are already inheriting a strong sense of entitlement. No one is owed anything….. I enjoy taking the time each night to help my children with their homework.

Just my humble opinion. If my daughter learns one thing in her life, I hope that it involves standing up for things she believes in. That happens everyday in the real world. You must approach the disagreement with maturity and intelligence. This mother was very calm and has an excellent point.

It would be very hard to argue with her, especially since the school employees are on her payroll. If you really believe that 6 full hours in a day is not enough time to educate children well, then I feel you may have a very misguided outlook on education.

Including coffee breaks and procrastination. Maybe bosses of companies need to be giving employees homework unpaid to eat into TV watching time. Children work very hard.

Look at the academic success of Finland, where no homework is the norm. There is no balance possible that would enable a child to get their homework done without eating into their earned recreation time at home.

There is plenty of time to turn them into rule obeying worker drones during their over-exam taking teenage years. Same goes for us. She is in 2nd grade, but learns on a 6th grade level. Well, they send home 3rd grade homework and she is bored with it. Do I make her do it? In fact, this is the exact same homework she was sent home with last year. Homework for a 7 year old is preposterous. She should be free of that. She is in sensory over load every single day. I am so glad I am not the only parent out there who thinks homework for small children is a really dumb idea.

Let them be free!!! As mom I can agree. As educator I can value your opinion. Only wish half the families spent the quality time with their children. Homework provides a window into what the child is learning and you have the opportunity to see how they grasp the subject and whether or not they need additional support.

As both an educator and a mother, I have conflicting feelings on this. I understand your point that in the early grades, children need to play and actually learn by doing so.

However, in the later grades, when preparing children for the job force or college, homework becomes a critical assessment of what children have actually learned in the classroom. What I completely object to is meaningless, timed homework. It is not practical or useful. A meaningful homework experience should reinforce what a child learns and challenge them to be ready for the next step. I only assigned homework when necessary, but some of my colleagues were not as generous.

I think your approach would go a little better if you designed a replacement homework plan that aligned what your children do after school to the skills the school was practicing at that time. You appear to do that already. One more thought and I will stop… Please be mindful that your children are very lucky that you are not only a caring and interested parent, but also one that values their experiences at learning through play. Many children are not that lucky.

The little bit of homework time after school may be the only positive learning experience they get in the 18 hours they are NOT in the classroom. I have been in a hotel room where a homeless family of five was living. I saw the state of their lives. I have seen the difficulties they faced.

It was an impossibility. Especially if their home lives are challenging. I agree with this concept completely. My son just started K this yr. Basically writing his letters. This is why I love the school we are at, I have found out that the majority of the teachers in higher grades send little to no homework home as well.

They help the children do their work in class and that only leaves them minimal homework later, with that usually being reading so not a big deal. The elementary teachers at my sons school are all great teachers and the children learn everything they are suppose to for the EOG.

I found a school that agrees with you! Not only do we get more family time, the kids are doing all of their work in school, with a skilled teacher present who can help them when they have questions. This needs to be a revolution: Homework is always such a struggle. Family time is more precious than spending the rest of the day doing homework!!

This year is an experiment and they have practically no homework, except for an occasional project that comes with the TAG classes. I thanked her for not giving and grading homework. I could tell her not to do homework, as I have done a few times after sitting through 2 long and painful hours of homework, but her homework gets graded.

The teacher was adamant that he just write anything in there—what tie the teacher was wearing—what funny joke someone said, and I was supposed to sign it each night?? I have 3 sons—2 who have no use for school, and are heavy equipment operators—who should have been steered in that direction, right from grade 8—and one who is gifted, who fell in the middle, did a 5 year university degree, and has a great job, traveling the world, teaching and training about environmental stewardship.

The other 2—well, they did what they had to do, to get by, and now love their jobs. My daughter was the one who played school, made up extra homework, went above and beyond and got her Masters degree in four years. My son is the one who did the absolute minimum to squeak by and always knew he wanted to work for the railroad. He is 19 and currently the youngest conductor in our area.

Both of my children are incredibly intelligent, but they are gifted in different ways. They make me very proud.

For one, homework actually was play, for the other, it was sheer torture and often went undone. There is a part of me that makes the boy vs. My frustration lies with how many times one of my kids would come home from high school and tell me they did absolutely nothing all day. When pressed to give an account of each hour, I would hear about movies they watched, YouTube videos a teacher would show, or how a discussion would last all hour and have absolutely nothing to do with curriculum.

I got so tired of my kids being taught how test instead of how to learn. That is not what education is about. Just stopped, changed their lives and realized they would have been happier cutting hair, or teaching English overseas, or yes, being a conductor of a train. That is where the crux of the backlash comes in — we all want that for our kids, and teachers are NEVER, EVER going to be able to do that for our children, even if they want to.

More parents should consider home educating! Our kids take dance, music lessons, belong to clubs and play sports, as well as making mud pies, riding bikes and just playing during their after-school hours. This is equally important to school work. For those who advocate homework for young children, think for a minute about the concept of balance. Love this letter, Heather! And especially the tone of it. You have a gift of keeping it positive—even the tough stuff!

Here, Homework has been banned by law for a few years. Yet school teachers still give lots of things to do at home and are surprised to see those young children tired at school and even tired of school. The idea behind refusing homework was to give every child the same chance. This is why I chose an online charter school for my children. They can spend the day playing and do school at night. Their school work takes roughly 4 hours, leaving a wonderfully large chunk of time for play, exploration, and field trips!

And best of all, no homework! That sounds like a great option for schooling! My 4th grader is not fluent in basic math incl. She understands the concepts taught in class but there is no time during class time to get the information in there so they are fluent simple mental arithmetic , and this is impeding her ability to progress in that area. I wish more parenting advice had encouraged me to do this instead of focusing solely on reading. Seek out some skip counting essentially the times tables song CDs.

I completely agree with you. Your kids are lucky to have a mom who understands that there are more important things than academics all day every day and that play, exercise, family time, and sleep are crucial components of a happy and well balanced childhood. BUT…if you feel that strongly against the status quo of the traditional American education system, I feel you should find another option for you kids, whether it be homeschooling as our family does or a charter school or some such option that has the same philosophy as you do on homework expectations.

I just think it is unfair to send a child to a school, knowing fully the expectations and beliefs of that institution, then expect your child to be exempted or treated differently based on your personal beliefs. Just my two cents. It seems this would be equivalent to signing a child up for a competitive sports team and allowing them to go to practices, but refusing to allow them to compete in meets.

You can choose to send them to school or not send them to school, but if you do choose to send them to school, you should take the good policies with the bad policies. The only way schools will change backward practices that have no research to support them is by parents taking a stand like Heather. In that case, I hope both parent and child are willing to accept the lower grade that may result from a failure to turn in homework.

My twins are in kindergarten and we love the 15 minutes of homework each night and I often give them additional learning activities because they enjoy it. They enjoy math worksheets and flash cards. We do those as fun activities. So of my fondest memories of my father are doing 2nd grade practice spelling tests and practicing vocabulary words.

Family time can be learning time. The last question I pose is why do you believe the teacher should make exceptions for your child? Playing by the rules is also a valuable lesson for our children. Kids build an enormous amount of experiences to build a strong base for math by outdoor play.

Building is especially important to making kids strong math learners. I went into teaching because I loved working with children and watching them light up as they grew and discovered new things. The new laws make it difficult to enjoy teaching the way it once was. I applaud the parents who spend quality time with their child, but based on my classroom observation, you are few and far between. As a parent, I too balked at the amount of meaningless homework brought home by my children, but they were able to do what was needed to be done and still have time for those other activities that they enjoyed.

If you went into the education sector because you loved teaching children, but your hands are tied to teach them in effective manners… why continue? Why not branch out and start a paid home-school co-op? I had a friend who was a public high school science teacher for several years and was insanely frustrated by the broken system… so she started a business that offered group lessons to homeschool co-ops or other similar gatherings. She makes as much money, actually impacts kids who are interested and has parental support.

The children in that broken system still deserve to have teachers who are in it for the love of teaching, even if their hands are tied more than they should be.

Totally agree with you, Heather! One night the teacher gave a homework assignment telling the kids to help their parents clean for 10 minutes. I would love it so much if you linked up this post to our Sunday Parenting Party. It would be a wonderful addition. My child attends elementary school in Chesterfield, VA. I was surprised at how many parents opposed this.

For me, I loved it. Less homework for me as well. But overall, less homework and my child is happier. I really appreciated reading this article.

Nothing drove me more crazy than having homework assigned to do over Christmas break or spring break — I banned it and on a couple of occasions I had to write notes to the teacher explaining that they would not be completing the assignments over their break but that they would make every effort to catch up with it during school time once they returned. Actually, there was one thing that drove me more crazy — when there was homework assigned that was a to be done as a group with one or more other students outside of school time.

Our family was most definitely an exception in our community — we only allowed our kids one structured extracurricular activity each. Had seen far to many families over the years who dragged their families from one sport to another to piano to dance to … we strongly believe that kids need the time to simply be kids.

SO, when it came to assigned group project homework, it became near impossible for our kids to arrange with other the other students whether they were allowed to pick their partners or not adequate time to complete the projects. More often than not, my children took on the bulk of the project themselves simply to ensure that it got done and done well.

Do you Believe in Homework? Wow, what a varied amount of responses! I too think homework is silly for younger kids. If you read to your kids, have them read to you, involve them in family life like cooking, reading and measuring from recipes, shopping, and etc they will be learning maths, science, reading.

Let them explore the outside world and they will be learning, build your relationship with them by engaging in activities together, they will be learning.

I find it interesting that in early education before formal 5 days a week schooling the emphasise is fully on the child learning through play, however when they turn 5 and attend school, they all of a sudden are supposed to not learn that way.

Yes both my kids attend ed Waldorf schools. I am a Waldorf trained teacher. Childhood is a magical time of life. Being part of Waldorf in Silicon Valley has been life saving, heart saving, peace of mind saving.

Thank you for your writings, keep on telling the truth. We are out here! More parents are catching on each day. It is holy work, protecting children. That sounds awesome, I really sympathize.

But a lot of our neighbor kids have big brothers in gangs and big sisters being hoochie to deal with. They have murderous streets to stay out of. They are always too busy and kids even have to have dinner by themselfs — so sad. When I was in Elementary school we only got reading as homework, but that was in former East Germany.

I am always surprised that not more parents complain about homework. That would be so great, instead of just letting the kids sit in front of TV or the Computer. I would love that. While a child plays they can learn so much more, especially if they have an adult near by or play with them who answers questions they have. Kids need to be outdoors in all kinds of weather, and I especially love that her outdoor kindergarten is inspired by waldkindergartens from Germany.

This is great and I think you are SUPER respectful of the teachers and clearly understand that you have no reason to be anti-teacher. I can see in the comments that many teachers are pointing out the pressures they are under. I feel for them and they are so right: Good for you for being a good example of how to stand up for what you believe while still being civil and open to discussion.

Especially at that age. I spent 12 years in public school. I walked out with anxiety and clinical depression. I am compelled to dish out some constructive criticism, as I feel you are hindering your effort of making a solid argument for your beliefs to teachers and administrators. You are addressing educators; therefore, you need to follow the guidelines for formal letter writing, using impeccable grammar and perfect punctuation.

You will gain immediate respect for showing your expertise in proper communication. Remember, you are selling the notion there is enough learning during school hours.

As for your hot topic, I feel our children earn the opportunity to enjoy afternoons and evenings after a long day of learning.

Considering most working adults are accustomed to an eight hour work day, should we expect the same, or more, from our children? Unfortunately, school systems nationwide continue to reduce their schedules, leaving our teachers in a bind.

We are down to days this year. As usual, it comes down to money, or lack thereof, and everyone feels the impact. I accept homework as a necessary evil; but, I find busywork for the sake of having homework to be cruel and counter-productive. Thank you for your thought-provoking post. No homework for my kids. No school for mine.

For whom do such approaches really work? I like the idea and I absolutely abhor homework in elementary school. However, without it being a class wide or school wide rule I think it will make it hard for your child to stay on the same page as everyone else in the class. It also creates a way for for parents to be involved in what their kids are doing in school and leads to many conversations about what your child may not understand and does not have time to communicate or are afraid to communicate with the teacher.

From my experience also, if you expect your child to be disciplined in something by the preteen years it is best to start the practice in the earlier years. Getting a teenager to start a new habit is not fun. If you do choose traditional school it is important to teach your kids to follow the rules in place and respect the authority of their teacher. School wide policies have to be fought at a higher level, not put on the back of the classroom teacher who already has their hands tied by policies in so many ways.

Teaching our kids to fight battles on the appropriate level in the right places is a tricky balance. I just think there are so many other options out there if you are looking for a more non-traditional way of schooling. I better idea, in my opinion, would be to meet with all the teachers of the grade level your child is about to enter to find out what their teaching philosophies are because while almost all public school teachers have to give homework, the amount and type of homework differs from teacher to teacher.

Then you can ask to have your child placed with the teacher that best fits your needs. I think the real key whichever route you choose is positive family and parental involvement.

I was always very behind in school and I would have loved for someone to sit down and do homework with me. The homework seriously is not that extensive in elementary school and if the parents take the time to make it a fun and positive time together there is still plenty of time for all the other stuff mentioned too. I also agree with the person who commented about city kids, that was my situation. We played in the street and kids ran a muck around the neighborhood with absolutely no adult supervision…not something I would want for my kids.

The school district my child attends has a board policy in that teachers are not allowed to assign homework until third grade. With that said my son is in first grade and does not officially have homework, but brings home a practice worksheet with several activities to complete in order to reinforce the weeks lessons. We are not required to complete the worksheet, but I work with my child to complete it.

I would be a concerned parent if I felt it was too much homework coming home. Children need to know that homework is a part of school. My concern with your plan is simple — when will your child learn necessary basics required to advance through the rest of their education? If you think that schools these days are able to provide enough education to cover even simple basics, you have another thing coming.

If anything, you may want to do homework to make sure your child is actually learning something. I would suggest expanding on it — use school curriculum as a basis to expand your kids knowledge and sense of wonder. If they are learning about ancient Rome for example, use the opportunity to expand on it by reading more, visiting Rome via Google Earth or through videos … If they are learning fractions, make cupcakes and have kids figure measurements based on certain change in the recipe….

While most teachers may take this well, you will create some disturbance which in turn will cost your child. If you want to implement a no-homework rule, then fight through the school board, not over your kids backs. If you decide to enroll your kids into school, you should follow their program — it is unfair to teachers and other parents that you are only taking parts of the program that you like.

I think I love you. This is exactly how I feel. My daughter has just started pre-school. Quite a bit as she is supposed to keep up with kids who have already been able to read before even starting pre-school. After school she is soooo tired. I am a big believer in free unstructured play and I want her to be able to spend time with her younger sibling, too.

I grew up with half-day school. We went home between 12 and 1. Yes, we did have homework, but not a whole lot and not until we were 8 or so. I am against busy work homework but using more learning in daily life.

In college I had trouble with math but the class I finally was allowed to use was applied math. We learned about math in the daily world and had to find something where math was used. I found out about the timing of street lights and really enjoyed math in that way. We also learned about USB codes and what they stand for.

Allow projects of the child choosing so they are interested and will learn more. I teach 5th grade gifted and high achieving students. I agree with the author completely. Homework is nothing but a waste of time. I do provide enrichment activities, but these are optional, ungraded, and usually take the form of contests such as essays that can win scholarship money or science projects for Week of the Ocean. The families are free to decide how time is spent outside of school.

Children need to keep busy and they need to create. If one is adamantly against homework, I would suggest homeschooling, which would seem to fit better with your philosophy in general; or a school with a no-homework policy.

But making your child the exception to the rule does not seem like an acceptable answer to me. I did not do homework in elementary school. We would get the odd project but they were always more fun than work, like collect leaves or make a family tree. I feel that not having homework at that age made me more independent. I also see that I was more capable of solving problems and more creative. Today when I go to homes of friends with children I see that most of the time the parents do not have the time or patience to help their child with homework.

This is because the parents have to get dinner ready as well as do things around the house that could not be done because both parents work. As a child I spent my time outside riding my bike, climbing trees and playing pretend. I am shocked how little time children now spend outside. When I have kids of my own I will not be helping them with homework after school I will be watching them play and enjoy their childhood as all children should be.

I would also like to add that not doing homework in elementary school did not set me up for doing poorly, I was always a good student and had great grades and graduated with over a 4. If homework is assigned, it should be something the child can do on their own with minimal support. I agree kids need time for other things, like being a kid, which too many over scheduled children do not know how to do! And preschool or kindergarten homework, ridiculous!

But I understand the value of learning to get tinto the habit of the studying after school routine. Why does it have to be all or nothing? Like a choice of come in tomorrow and tell us about the book you read last night, or draw a picture of something that makes you happy to share tomorrow, etc.

And I still earned 2 BAs in 4 years, sadly I could not stomach anymore! Research shows that homework at such a young age does nothing to improve scores or achievement, and only sets a president for homework in the future. The ten minute rules was put in place by Marzano who researched the topi and found many teachers were over killing.

It also is nice to have at hand when parents ask for more. That where the issue stands: I would find your letter a bit conduced ding. Again, most teachers would probably agree. It would take little convincing. All we can say is LOVE….. And I was a teacher You are not alone!! Sounds like homeschooling would be a perfect fit for your family — then they can have abundant time to live an abundant life as a child!

Can You Opt Out of Homework? I hated that the schools pushed homework on kids at such a young age. Whenever there was an event at school and I expressed my displeasure about homework to other parents I was always meet with odd looks and many parents disagreed with me. Kids need to be kids! I am so glad there are other parents out there that know children are suppose to learn to be kids and not mini adults. The elementary schools buries them in homework from day one while the middle school is adamant that homework should be limited.

When my daughter, a straight A kid, was in fifth grade, she had hours per night of homework! She still aced all of her subjects without the massive homework drain on her time.

I will not tolerate hours in elementary school ever again. I believe that each school has a homework culture, likely set by its administrators plus all the state and federal mandates. Teachers also have some leeway despite whatever culture has been established. For example, my daughter hated homework and it was a major battle. Meanwhile, in her spare time, she loved learning about countries and drawing their flags.

So, start with the teacher and work your way up the chain if necessary. I just posted a link on my FB page and am curious what the response will be. Now days I hear from almost every parent that Homework is not worth it, it takes too long, cuts out family time, the parent ends up doing it, etc. I think kids learn better when the subjects are liked not pressured on them, and there is time to explore them. Homework is usually dreaded by the student and parent. I totally agree 6 hours of school should be enough time for structured learning, actually home educators can teach all subjects in about 4 hours.

It makes you wonder about the public schools hua? Of the 41 separate countries classified, seven were found to show no evidence of filtering in all three areas Egypt , France , Germany , India , Ukraine , United Kingdom , and United States , while one was found to engage in pervasive filtering in all three areas China , 13 were found to engage in pervasive filtering in one or more areas, and 34 were found to engage in some level of filtering in one or more areas.

Of the 10 countries classified in both and , one reduced its level of filtering Pakistan , five increased their level of filtering Azerbaijan , Belarus , Kazakhstan , South Korea , and Uzbekistan , and four maintained the same level of filtering China , Iran , Myanmar , and Tajikistan. The report assessed 65 countries and reported that 36 countries experienced a negative trajectory in Internet freedom since the previous year, with the most significant declines in Russia , Turkey and Ukraine.

According to the report, few countries demonstrated any gains in Internet freedom, and the improvements that were recorded reflected less vigorous application of existing controls rather than new steps taken by governments to actively increase Internet freedom.

The year's largest improvement was recorded in India , where restrictions to content and access were relaxed from what had been imposed in to stifle rioting in the northeastern states.

Notable improvement was also recorded in Brazil , where lawmakers approved the bill Marco Civil da Internet , which contains significant provisions governing net neutrality and safeguarding privacy protection. When the "Enemies of the Internet" list was introduced in , it listed 13 countries.

Findings from the poll include: In July and August the Internet Society conducted online interviews of more than 10, Internet users in 20 countries. Some of the results relevant to Internet censorship are summarized below. Among the countries that filter or block online content, few openly admit to or fully disclose their filtering and blocking activities. During the Arab Spring of , media jihad media struggle was extensive.

Internet and mobile technologies, particularly social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, played and are playing important new and unique roles in organizing and spreading the protests and making them visible to the rest of the world.

This successful use of digital media in turn led to increased censorship including the complete loss of Internet access for periods of time in Egypt [14] [15] [95] and Libya in In response to the greater freedom of expression brought about by the Arab Spring revolutions in countries that were previously subject to very strict censorship, in March , Reporters Without Borders moved Tunisia and Egypt from its "Internet enemies" list to its list of countries "under surveillance" [98] and in dropped Libya from the list entirely.

The deluded and deceived secular Christians who are not true followers of Jesus will mock you, accuse you, and reject you for not voting for a LIE to help them to save their evil kingdom that is falling and headed for destruction.

Jesus our Salvation said, "Repent: Editor, Jonathan Israel editor ConnectionMagazine. In a rare move in the Christian community of America, Christianity Today, the Christian Magazine founded by Billy Graham, made a public stand against the Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, citing instruction from Bible Scriptures.

The executive editor Andy Crouch, wrote an editorial that boldly called out the sinful lifestyle of the billionaire politician. Scriptures instruct believers on how to engage in the rebuke of those claiming to be a Christian, who elect to continue engaging in sin; I Tim 5: We are especially not indifferent when the Gospel is at stake. The Gospel is of infinitely greater importance than any campaign. Was it right for Christianity Today to publicly challenge Donald Trump's corrupt and sinful ways?

Yahshua's disciples openly disputed against self-righteous religious Jews who rejected the righteousness Yahshua offers to those who repent. In the last days Therefore honor God with your bodies. And he's challenging donors to help him buy it. He'd be in an airplane preaching the gospel all over the world.

But he was not cracking a joke when he announced his need for the pricey three-engine plane, which can fly up to miles per hour. He was dead serious. Duplantis' request didn't go over well when his video went viral. Secular news reporters called him a charlatan. Some Christians condemned him as a con artist. In a social media post, gospel singer Kirk Franklin accused Duplantis of exploiting poor people.

Duplantis' fans, however, weren't shocked by his request. They have helped him buy three previous jets. He tells his followers that they, too, can be rich if they give generously. I won't be surprised if Duplantis gets his Falcon 7X. But as a traveling minister who has flown to 32 countries on commercial airlines-usually in cramped tourist class seats-I still don't believe Duplantis' theology about private planes is sound. In fact, I believe Duplantis is in danger of hurting the cause of the gospel.

Here are the top reasons I wouldn't support his private jet plan: Private jets are a wasteful use of donor funds. Preachers can give you a litany of reasons why they need to fly direct to their destination: Time saved, less stress, no worries about lost luggage. Not to mention more legroom! But the Bible calls us to be good stewards of God's resources. Private aircraft cost an exorbitant amount of money compared to commercial flights because owners must provide service and upkeep on the vehicles.

If an evangelist needs to fly to the most remote village of Borneo, and there are no commercial planes going there, then I can understand the need for a private plane. But Duplantis is not going to Borneo. According to his website, some of his upcoming meetings are in Nashville, Tennessee; Detroit, Michigan; and Tacoma, Washington.

Even first-class seats on Delta Airlines to those locations are a fraction of the cost of private air travel. Ministers who demand luxury deny the core of the gospel. We are confronted every day by the reality of poverty and suffering in our world, and we know that true followers of Christ are called to give and share, not take and hoard.

We also know that a preacher who gets rich off of the offerings of poor people is actually involved in exploitation-a sin which Scripture strongly condemns. When the skeptical younger generation sees this, they assume all Christian ministers are fakes and frauds. The world doesn't need a message of greed. The prosperity gospel became hugely popular during the s, when many Christians in the United States were riding a wave of American capitalism. But many of the get-rich preachers of that era either landed in jail or fell morally, and we reaped a whirlwind of bad fruit.

We were supposed to learn a lesson from that failed experiment. God blesses us not so we can become selfish consumers but so we can become selfless channels of His blessings to others. Jesus did indeed ride a donkey. If Jesus had used Jesse Duplantis' logic during His ministry on earth, He would have asked His disciples to collect money from the crowds to buy a gold chariot drawn by Caesar's best horses.

But He didn't do that. He rode on the back of a rented donkey, the transportation of a poor man. He didn't require a first-class seat or a luxury vehicle. Jesus took the lowest seat and invited all of us to model servanthood. I pray we will rediscover humility. Let's show our cynical culture that GOD'S ministers don't demand luxury treatment. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

By Covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. They are the enemies of the cross of Christ: They are not valiant for the truth on the earth. Therefore they speak as of the world , and the world hears them. First of all, after Jesus would forgive people of their sins as only He can, He instructed them, "Go and sin no more.

We are commanded to "Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame. Do you realize that " Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.

They are wittingly or unwittingly messengers of satan speaking doctrines of demons that keep people weak and broken. Under the guise of their human interpretation of "love", "tolerance", and "acceptance", they are blind guides at best and ministers of satan at worst. Regarding those who have the "Form formality of godliness, but denying the power thereof: And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

We can do all things through Jesus who strengthens us. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is how we KNOW we are in him: Are you living as He did? And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity sin. Romans 6 , says, "You WERE the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Remember, He also could only do what He saw the Father do Jesus said, "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: Yes, we are His body. When Jesus and His word dwells in someone, they begin to practice righteousness, war the flesh, resist the devil and stop living in sin. And if any man sin , we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous The true body of believers and congregations are NOT sinners but they are those who practice righteousness.

Those outside of the body of Christ are sinners; they are those whom we help to evangelize and convert with the Gospel message of "repentance and remission of sin".

The orderly church congregation is a place for discipleship, not evangelism. It's a new self identification movement that openly rejects truth, biology, and God's design of mankind as documented in the book of Genesis. Not to fall behind in the advance of sexual perversion, Disney will begin promoting sexual deviancy among children.

Andi Mack, one of Disney Channel's most popular shows, now identifies that one of its main characters, a middle schooler, is gay. Will American parents continue to be silent as their children are bombarded with perverted BELIEFS about their sexuality in schools, books, television and elsewhere in their communities? Meanwhile, a church in England recently dismissed a Christian teacher for saying "well done girls" to two female students; one of whom now believes she is a boy.

This signals a new age in which the rights of a child who changes their thoughts or feelings about their gender will increasingly override truth and the rights of those who profess it; including you and your children.

Soon, laws will be made to force those who are NOT confused about gender, to declare and BELIEVE the lies propagated by sexually confused and perverted persons, or be penalized for declaring the truth. And it is only going to get worse. Meanwhile, if you do not want to warn and teach your children the truth, there are educators, books, governments and even Disney who will teach them a LIE.

The Lord also warns His true followers to prep for a time that will be so evil that no flesh would be saved if he did not cut those days short. Prep not to save our lives but to love the Lord more than our own lives. Luke chapter 12 and Matthew 24, speak of this advance of evil that is here and is coming. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

However, there are many among those professing faith in Jesus who do not want to know about or even consider the signs of the times in light of Scripture warnings. Jesus exposes them as hypocrites when He said, "You hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that you DO NOT discern this time?

Jesus warned us of the signs of the times coming before He returned so we could prayerfully be prepared as the wise virgins to endure the darkness and NOT be caught unaware as the hypocrites who will suffer eternal destruction. Sadly, many willfully elect to walk in the advancing darkness rather than in the light and fellowship with Jesus. Do not read the following Scripture if you are offended at truth that exposes FALSE modern church and religious beliefs.

First century Christians knew the truth regarding earthly kingdoms and present worldly power. Jesus openly admitted, "My kingdom is NOT of this world The devil, satan, knows the limited and temporary worldly power he has, and tempted Jesus with it The devil, taking him Jesus up into an high mountain, shewed unto him ALL the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: Jesus challenged this statement because satan was trying to tempt Him. If it was a lie or not a true statement then it would NOT have been temptation for the Lord, and Jesus would not have rebuked him for trying to tempt Him.

Even now, the USA, under the leadership of President Trump, is pushing to give power and authority to what he calls a "movement" consisting of uniting and empowering "all faiths, beliefs and religions".

Interestingly, the Roman papacy the first beast has expressed the same vision as that of President Trump, and also calls it a "movement". And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. Yes, all newcomers to the USA are expected to agree with and support the 'values' of America. And apparently, those who already live in the USA are mandated to accept and believe in these unnamed American values too. But, just what are the values propagated by these still United States of America that we must all 'share'?

On June 23rd, , US soldiers of the th Military Police Battalion were mandated to attend Transgender training, at which time a soldier from the unit who identified as Christian protested due his belief that homosexuality is a sin condemned in the Bible.

The unit chaplain — allegedly a Southern Baptist endorsed chaplain — conducted the Transgender briefing and informed the follower of Jesus that he and the Battalion Commander did not believe Transgender training would violate his beliefs. Therefor, the Commander declared he could not dismiss the soldier from the perverted sexual acclimation training and cited that it was a Department of the Army directive.

Hypocritically, the US Army does not mandate their soldiers to take Christian sensitivity training or even simple training that would include the following Bible Scripture, because it may offend their faith and be contrary to homosexual beliefs;.

Changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; All that will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. The wars and rumors of wars the earth is and will experience before Babylon's final one world system is established, will pale in comparison to the great destruction coming upon the earth after Babylon rises for the last time.

In order for the USA to finally fit all the DNA of Daughter Babylon, they would have to become a destroyer of the earth, bringing destruction to this world as never before. Clearly, by selling abortion, porn and sexual deviant lifestyles to the world in the name of "Christianity", the US has already brought much destruction via their mixed, mingled wine of fornication and evil.

Have you have been guilty of idol worship? Worshiping a rich and powerful evil kingdom with a satanic agenda? Do you really want to spread the American way of life around the world?

You don't have to like this post but you can turn to the lord with all your heart mind and soul, so you will be able to stand in the evil hour. NOW we are Righteous! Scripture reveals that some are Righteous and some are Sinners?

What does the Scripture say about those who continue in sin? Hebrews 10;26, "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins," John 8: Satan calls the followers of the Lord 'sinners. Whose report will you believe? Americanized Christianity has largely taught that if we are truly loving and share God's word correctly, we will get a good response from people instead of controversy, negative feedback and personal attacks.

If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

For the Holy Spirit shall teach you in the same hour what you ought to say. This is what he wrote to followers of Jesus;.

And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be KILLED as they were, should be fulfilled. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken shattered , all these things will be completed.

Edward Snowden worked as a contractor for the CIA and had top security clearance at the highest level. When he discovered that the United States was illegally spying on any US Citizen for any reason and at anytime, contrary to their US Constitutional right to be protected from their government, his conscience began to b other him. Phone calls, e-mail accounts, and the internet activity of law abiding citizens was no longer private and they didn't even know it. Clearly, the Fourth Amendment of the U.

Constitution provides, "[t]he right of the people However, in spite of the US Constitutional rights of Americans established to protect them from illegal government intrusion into their privacy, the new president elect of the USA considers Edward Snowden a criminal and a spy.

Since lying is one of his habitual public practices and he's no stranger to flip flopping on his promises, perhaps President-elect Donald Trump will pardon the man he has advocated to have killed. Meanwhile, Snowden has had a rare glimpse inside the belly of the lawless, putrid and evil whore called America, and he is sincerely and deeply concerned about where it's headed.

In fact, I see it as a very dark future," he said somberly. Should Snowden have declared the truth about the illegal activity he discovered? Bible Scripture reveals the Lord's direction for us to speak truth.

From Snowden's perspective, the decision to give up his future and possibly his life, had to be made in order to alert the American people. He now lives in exile in Russia. Lifeway Christian retail chain has refused to sell Amy Grant's new Christmas album; so, she sent her hired manager, Jennifer Cooke, to publicly attack Lifeway. It was at that time her music began to be rejected in the Christian arena; both retailers and radio.

Cooke disagrees with Christianity's refusal to tolerate carnal spirits, "I believe Jesus is the answer, but I also find Him to be engaged in the midst of our humanity and that there is also something beautiful and holy to be explored in our humanness.

However, while Cooke seeks to glorify the ways of 'humanness' flesh , Scripture says, "no flesh should glory in the Lord's presence. Therefore, "He that glories, let him glory in the Lord. Deviating from God's word, Amy Grant now embraces a lifestyle that is certainly humanly carnal.

Grant once married to singer Gary Chapman, boldly claims that divorce is in order if a marriage seems to be hurtful. Grant did not describe what constitutes hurtful. However, in Matthew 5: Meanwhile, seemingly disillusioned by his wife's divorce action, former husband Chapman claims that the Biblical view of marriage is correct and that he believes that a marriage is meant to last a lifetime.

Grant divorced him in Amy Grant, age 55, not only unbiblically divorced her husband, she compounded her adulterous sin by marrying a divorced man. Her and new husband Vince Gill had known each other for several years having worked on musical projects together.

They were often spotted together at various locations in Nashville before both decided to divorce their spouses and then marry each other.

Amy Grant unashamedly admits to having lusted so strongly after another woman's husband that she divorced her own husband to get the other man. Eventually, the man she vigorously chased divorced his wife and they married. Hopefully they will repent and accept God's grace, God's word, and God's way as final authority.

If not, and they continue to validate and justify what God calls sin, they will be denied entrance into God's Eternal Kingdom. October 24, Muslims decided to protest on Friday in Rome, Italy, and they chose the site of the ancient Colosseum, which is where Christians were tortured and fed to the lions. Was the Muslim choice of venue, historically famous for hosting the murderous slaughter of multitudes of followers of Jesus, a means of sending a more sinister message as they publicly demonstrated against a police crackdown of illegal Muslim gatherings and assemblies?

Italy is home to the 4th largest population of Muslims in Europe; 1. The Muslims protesters claim they are only fighting for their "religious freedom". One woman said, "They need to open places of worship for us. However, just two months ago, the Islamic State issued a video to the Government of Italy, which included a new threat to "conquer" Rome. Meanwhile, Islam's current goal according to their teachings in the Quran is world domination that leaves zero room for any other religion.

America is now seeing record numbers of Muslim terror attacks in ; from a mass murder at a night club in Florida that left 49 people dead, to indiscriminate shootings and stabbings at malls all across the country. With the current US policy on Muslim immigrants from the Middle East and especially Syria, the American people can now only expect to see Islamic terror increase.

This has been confirmed by Politifact. Donald Trump, who began his presidential campaign by promising a freeze on Muslim immigration, has already flip flopped on the issue and said he will just do a good job vetting the Muslim refugees before they come to America. But come to America they will. Islam instructs Muslims to worship Allah, the Babylonian moon god. Here are a few of the modern day Muslim teachings currently being taught on US soil with impunity.

Water — Exodus And Moses did s o in the sight of the elders of Israel. Clothing — Deuteronomy Miraculous Intervention — Nehemiah 9: Multiplied Food — Mark 6: So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves.

Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish. The number of men who had eaten was five thousand. Water Into Wine — John 4: All Healed — Luke 4: Supernatural Feats — Matthew The Lord has made provisions for His people who must flee to the wilderness.

You are the blessed of the Lord! Yes, the Mighty One of Israel will arrive for a temporary one-thousand-year reign and ingathering of His followers in Jerusalem. No, this is not asking about your worldly political party affiliation. Holy Scripture warns of the 'revel' party Comes from the French word reveler meaning to rebel rebellious.

Do NOT be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation ; but be filled with the Spirit They think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation , speaking evil of you. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, and covetous , May this message serve as an alarm and a great confirmation.

As a young man growing up in my faith in Jesus, I once attended a fellowship of believers that were all about studying the Scriptures and having much head knowledge, but lacked the power of God. I later attended a congregation that was extremely enamored with the manifested power of the Holy Spirit; however, they were largely Biblically illiterate, which opened the door for much lawlessness.

A preacher that I have heard minister many times, a man that I have respected very much, has just promoted grave error in his recent teaching; Error which revealed his, and that of many organized church's, major lack of understanding of the MYSTERY of God.

It does not matter what the preachers name is; therefor, I will only share the details of the event. I do not share this story to make light of the preacher's frailty, since we all live in flesh that will soon perish.

The preacher in question had decided to use a teaching demonstration on discipling followers of Jesus to supposedly minister properly and most effectively.

During what may be his final act of ministry, he made the declaration that "no one needs to know about your experiences," when you share or minister the Gospel of Jesus. Imagine if the Lord instructed the Apostles and prophets not to write of their personal experiences in which the power, love and faithfulness of the Lord manifested. What if we never heard from Daniel, how the Lord delivered him from the Lion's den, or from Paul on how the Lord delivered him from so much persecution and how He raised him from the dead after he was stoned for preaching the Gospel of Jesus?

What if we didn't hear King David's testimony regarding his experience of receiving the Lord's forgiveness after he repented for adultery and murder? And what if we never heard of Peter's experience receiving the Lord's forgiveness and restoration to ministry after he repented for denying Jesus three times?

All true followers of Jesus have testimonies of experiencing the Lord's presence, forgiveness, power, intervention and deliverance that are extremely valuable witnesses to share with others. Faith comes by hearing, and we are all certainly most effective at testifying if we've witnessed something.

However, in his zeal, he further revealed a doctrine of error when he pointed to the heart of the person helping him to demonstrate his teaching, a volunteer who represented Timothy of the Scriptures, and told him that no one needs to know what's in your heart because "none of that is the power of God.

Soon after the preacher mistakenly and inadvertently taught that the heart of the Lord's followers does NOT contain the power of God, the preacher suffered a major heart attack. The timing may be a coincidence; however, may the Lord help all of us learn from this lesson. May we receive His mercy with His truth. And may we also serve Jesus by the Holy Spirit as well as the word. If you are a true follower of Jesus, it truly, most certainly better be the power of God in your heart.

To the preacher's credit, he finished by telling the assistant playing the role of Paul's protoge, "As for your part Timothy, preach the word". Yes, we are all exhorted and admonished many times throughout the New Covenant to preach the word. There would be less lawlessness among so-called churches if the full counsel of God's word was preached.

However, in these last days, The Lord is raising up His remnant of true followers who have an inward experience of Jesus; filled with the Holy Spirit as well as God's word written on their hearts. Apart from being born again, born of the Holy Spirit, we are just religious men mouthing words and having a form of godliness with NO power. And this we have experienced in America's organized church communities with increasing measure for too long. May the Lord draw the heart of the preacher and all seekers to experience and witness the fullness of the Lord, rather than to merely idolize Scripture apart from the inner presence and power of the Holy Spirit.

For it is the power of Jesus' Holy Spirit impacting a life from within, confirming the Scripture and manifesting spiritual fruit outward for the world to see and the Lord to enjoy.

Lord, Jesus, help us. The following list of holy Scripture confirms those who belong to the Lord God and exposes those who don't! April 11, Truth or Error? Whose Word Are You Following?

They speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts worldly desires of the flesh , through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. ALL that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is NOT of the Father but is of the world. How do you determine if something is right and true?

How does the Lord? I would like to call attention to the fact that our day is a day which the ruling philosophy even in church communities is pragmatism.

Why Protestantism has no “visible catholic Church”
