More "Born that Way" Indoctrination: the Poison of Oprah and Scholastic Books in our schools

You've perhaps heard the song by Lady Gaga, "Born that Way"? She is part of a broad movement in our society that seeks to convince our young people that they do not have free will to refuse sin and resist temptation with the help of God's grace. She and others like her think that human freedom and happiness lies in pursuing every urge and fantasy.

This lie is based upon a denial of the human dignity give by God in creating every human person in His image and likeness and the grace of redemption won by Jesus Christ for every human being through His Passion, death and Resurrection. The book described below is another element in the societal plunge into self-annihilation and the destruction of our young people and their hope for salvation.

Beware of this book! Oprah is pushing it. This is in opposition of all faiths.

If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church, or you have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take note of the information below and pass it along to others. Schools
are distributing this book to children through the SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB. The name of the book is Conversations with God.

James Dobson talked about this book twice on his program. It is devastating. Parents, churches and Christian schools need to be aware of it. Please pass this information on to church/e-mail addresses, parents, grandparents and others who influence our children.

Two particular books are, Conversations with God and Conversations with God for Teens, written by Neale D. Walsch. They sound harmless enough by their titles alone. The books have been on the New York Times best sellers list for a number of weeks, and they make truth of the statement, "Don't judge a book by its cover or title."

The author purports to answer various questions asked by kids using the "voice of God". However, the "answers" that he gives are NOT Bible-based and go against the very infallible word of God. For instance (and I paraphrase), when a girl asks the question "Why am I a lesbian?" His answer is that she was 'born that way' because of genetics (just as you were born right-handed, with brown eyes, \ etc.). Then he tells her to go out and "celebrate" her differences.

Another girl poses the question "I am living with my boyfriend. My parents say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I marry him?"
His reply is, "Who are you sinning against? Not me, because you have done nothing wrong."

Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin. His reply "I do not forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive... There is no such thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell everyone, do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another and this is wrong, because the rule is "'judge not lest ye be judged."

Not only are these books the false doctrine of the devil, but in some instances quote (in error) the Word of God.

And the list goes on. These books (and others like it) are being sold to school children through (The Scholastic Book Club), and we need to be aware of what is being fed to our children.

Our children are under attack. So I pray that you be sober and vigilant about teaching your children the Word of God, and guarding their exposure to worldly mediums, because our adversary, the devil, roams about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). We know that lions usually hunt for the slowest, weakest and YOUNGEST of prey.

I was very happy when our school gave Scholastic Books the boot. I was appalled at some of the books they would try to sell to the kids.

Thank you for visiting.
