Why they hate God's Word [Excerpts]
In 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a legally binding contract for all nations. It sounds good, as do most of the intrusive UN treaties. Article 18 upholds "the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion..." Article 19 affirms "the right to freedom of opinion and expression...."
But all the lofty promises were shattered by Article 29, which states that, "these rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."
The National Education Association (NEA) shares the UN goals on every point. Small wonder, since its leaders helped establish the United Nations in the first place. Back in 1946, it celebrated the formation of UNESCO as "the culmination of a movement for the creation of an international agency of education." What the NEA began in secret was now established by international law.
In 1946, Dr. Brock Chisholm, the first Secretary-General of the United Nations' World Health Organization (WHO) shared the message "The Psychiatry of Enduring Peace and Social Progress" at a world conference on mental health. Two years later, it was published in two magazines: Psychiatry and Alger Hiss' socialist publication titled International Conciliation. Alger Hiss, the presiding Secretary General at the 1945 founding of the United Nations, wrote the Preface to Dr. Chisholm's paper. Ponder these excerpts:
"For many generations we have bowed our necks to the yoke of the conviction of sin. We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day school teachers....
"If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil, it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility....[The] people who matter are the teacher, the young mothers and fathers, the parent-teacher associations, youth groups... churches and Sunday schools -- everyone who can be reached and given help toward intellectual freedom [from Biblical guidelines]... Can such a program of re-education or of a new kind of education be charted? ... Only so... can we help our children carry their responsibilities as world citizens...
"...it has long been generally accepted that parents have a perfect right to impose any points of view, any lies or fears, superstitions, prejudices, hates, or faith on their defenseless children. It is, however, only recently that it has become a matter of certain knowledge that these things cause neuroses, behavior disorders, emotional disabilities, and failure to develop to a state of emotional maturity which fits one to be a citizen of a democracy."
[TBC: (see Sept. 1990 TBC): An integral part of the new global education, as Allan Bloom warns in The Closing of the American Mind, is "to force students to recognize that there are other ways of thinking...[in order] to establish a world community...devoid of prejudice." Bloom's use of "prejudice" is tongue-in-cheek, for in the new world community there are no moral absolutes and it is therefore "prejudice" to suggest that one point of view might be right and another wrong. There must be absolutely no absolutes, for such dogmatism would destroy global unity. And again, psychology is a tool to separate people from a relationship with God.]
