Weebles Wobble but They Don’t Fall Down

Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down

Did you ever own a weeble? You could sock ‘em. You could rock ‘em. You could lay them out flat—but only for an instant. No matter what hit them, they bounced right back up straight again. Are you teaching your kids to be weebles-for-Christ?

What do I mean by weebles-for-Christ? Let’s take a look at a couple of the factors that make a weeble a weeble.

According to Wikipedia, the overall shape must have constant positive curvature. Let’s translate that into faith talk. Is the faith of your kids so strong, so constant, so positive that it can withstand blows from classes on evolution, promiscuity, homosexuality, Islam? Can it withstand sexting that arrives on their cell phones, jeering by other kids, a feeling of being left out? If so, congratulations! You are raising a weeble-for-Christ!

Another quality of a weeble is it must have only one position in which it can achieve stable mechanical equilibrium. In other words, there is one place where a weeble stands solidly and with confidence. The Bible calls that “standing firm.” To do that requires a reliable foundation. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24). Are your kids putting Jesus’ words into practice? If so, congratulations! You are raising a weeble-for-Christ!

“So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic’” (Isaiah 28:16).

Ah, did you read that Bible passage carefully? It doesn’t say your kids will never be tested. It doesn’t declare that their faith will put them in a bubble, and no temptations will ever assail them. They will hear the scientific reasons for rejecting the stand that God created the world, and those same scientific reasons that attribute it all to the Big Bang and evolution. And they will wonder which “faith” is right. Their faith in God may wobble. They will see others having sex before marriage, and wonder why they should wait. They will be socked and rocked. Their faith may wobble. But God says, “the one who relies on it [his sure foundation] will never be stricken with panic.” They will find their stable equilibrium.

“. . .how much more those who live in houses of clay, whose foundations are in the dust, who are crushed more readily than a moth!” (Job 4:19). The kids who do not have the foundation, the firm reliance on the word and the power of God, are described in that passage from Job. Maybe that might give your kids the incentive to tell their friends who are not weebles-for-Christ about the love of God—the reason they do what they do.

My blogs previously were located on my website DibsOnYourKids.com but seemed to be getting lost in the shuffle. Therefore, I’ve started this new stand-alone blog that I call “God’s Path for Kids.”  It will contain the same news as the previous blogs The Pipers’ Paths and Standing Firm did, beginning with my first post here on April 15, 2017. You can find all my previous posts back on the other website.

Islam and Our U.S. Department of Education

If you thought there really was separation of church and state (which actually never has been a part of our Constitution) that idea can now be dismissed.

My blog-before-last on my website DibsOnYourKids was titled “Islam Indoctrination in Public Schools.” In that I referenced how Islam is being taught in our public schools World History and Social Studies classes. Many complaints have been made about both the textbooks and the curricula. Today I learned it has gone far beyond that.

The United States Department of Education has developed studies for grades four through eight (it was at one time grades five through twelve) called Access Islam. You can view the program yourself at Access Islam . At that website you will find links to nineteen different videos, detailed lesson plans, a timeline of Islam from 560 (Life of Muhammad) to 2006 (Islam in America), a glossary, additional resources, and a page of credits. If you look carefully on the “About” page of credits, you will see under Project Advisors the name Shabbir Mansuri. Mansuri is the man I wrote about in my book Who’s Got Dibs on Your Kids? who was the primary person involved in rewriting world history textbooks to teach Islam.

I’ve placed a video  on my DibsOnYourKids website produced by the Christian Action Network (CAN) that demonstrates portions of the videos that are a part of the Access Islam lesson material.

I highly recommend you go to the Christian Action Network (CAN) page and read their report on Access Islam courses. It says, “Students are taught to learn Islamic scripture, give the meaning of that Islamic verse, and explain how they can use it in their daily lives. . . The Islamic education program, funded by the DOE, is primarily disseminated through PBS LearningMedia and the Educational Broadcasting Corporation. ” Martin Mawyer of that organization said that students are NOT taught that Jesus is Lord, but they DO learn that Allah is God.

Bear in mind that it was developed by the U.S. Department of Education with $174,000 tax dollars, and disseminated through PBS which is supported with tax dollars. I am posting on my Ways to Take Action page some ideas I have for you to help us fight against this indoctrination of our kids in the Islam faith. This is definitely taking them on a path away from God—the true and only God.

God says: “You shall have no other gods before[a] me” (Exodus 20:3).
