AMERICA HAS LOST HER MIND

As the old United Negro College Fund commercial used to tell us, “the mind is a terrible thing to waste.” Losing one’s mind is even worse.

America has lost her mind.

What is the mind? It is "the element, part, substance, or process that reasons, thinks, feels, wills, perceives, judges, etc." In most Americans this part of the brain no longer functions. For many the loss of our mind is a result of the “mind blowing” experience of the sixties, or from sitting at the feet of the radical Humanists who permeate our nation’s universities, or perhaps from a life filled with Oprah, Dr. Phil, Jerry Springer and the Cable News outlets.

The average American no longer thinks. Years in the public-fool system has sucked all ability to use logic and reason out of our populace. Americans have been systematically dumbed-down. “No Tax Dollar Left Behind” had as its goal a slick transformation in educational method. Measure, measure, measure…test, test, test. This is the only way, we were told, to determine whether or not our children are learning.

Testing measures rote memory. In other words, for those of you who never learned that word, it means a measurement of WHAT YOU HAVE MEMORIZED.

“Jack Spratt could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean.” Today’s “testing” measures whether you can recite the poem, not your ability to analyze the dietary principles enunciated therein. (I used those fancy words so that you would know I still have my mind.)

Logic is the ability to frame an argument based on knowledge. Knowledge is “acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation" and reason requires the application of logic in order to determine the validity of a particular theory.

Ultimately, wisdom is the goal. Wisdom is “the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.”

Proverbs 4:7 says “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”

“What is true, right, or lasting……” sort of puts you in mind of the knowledge we are pumping into America’s young “skulls full of mush,” doesn’t it?

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. What is a fool? Why, a fool is “a person who lacks judgment or sense.” Americans and American schools are producing trained-fools. Not just fools, “a stupid person,” but trained fools, fools who have been “coached in or accustomed to a mode of behavior or performance.” All wrong thinking leads to wrong action. The thief thought he would get away with it. The rapist never thought he would get caught. The teenager never thought she would get pregnant.

Just because you believe something, anything, does not make it true.

We no longer teach our children HOW to think. Instead, we “coach” them on WHAT to think and then test to measure if the indoctrination has worked. Ooops, “indoctrination,” that is probably another word many are not familiar with. Indoctrination is “teaching someone to accept doctrines without proof.” Everywhere you look we are being indoctrinated. Our news is indoctrination. “They decide, we report.” “We have to stop Hillary.” “Who are you to judge?" “Global warming is destroying the planet.” “Top-tier candidates.”

American-adults have lost their minds. Look at the garbage we are teaching our kids:

  • A child doesn’t need a mother and a father. Two moms or two dads are fine, because men and women are really no different.
  • Anal sex between men is normal, but those who speak out against it are not.
  • Killing a wanted unborn child is homicide; an unwanted unborn child is choice.
  • Global warming kills more people than abortion.
  • “Choice” is good for unborn children, but bad for born school children.
  • A young woman can have an abortion and yet never have regrets about it.

We have lost our minds!

  • A child must say no to cigarettes, but it is ok to say yes to sex.
  • Abortion is good and the death penalty is bad.
  • Divorce is best for the children if it makes the parents happier.
  • Spanking your children will cause them to be violent.
  • Famous people are better than “regular” people.
  • Love is sex and sex is love.
  • Condoms will prevent disease.

We have lost our minds!

  • Creating more laws will lower crime.
  • Gun control makes law-abiding citizens safer.
  • Being sick is an excuse for breaking the law.
  • Government needs to spy on us to keep us safe from terrorism.
  • “Experts” know what is best for the rest of us.
  • Our rights are granted by government.
  • We need more money for education.

We have lost our minds!

  • Paying people not to work will make them more productive.
  • We have no right to judge the actions of another person.
  • The government is the answer to everyone’s problems. .
  • There is a big difference between Democrats and Republicans.
  • President Bush is a Christian-conservative.
  • The National Education Association cares about kids than teachers.

We have lost our minds!

  • Jesus has forgiven our sins so stop talking about sin.
  • An hour of Sunday school will undue 7 hours a day in public schools.
  • God is not to be included in public ceremonies, government, or education.
  • Remove the teachings of Christianity and people will naturally be good.
  • The US Supreme Court over-rides the law of God.
  • Jesus is most concerned with making us happy.
  • Those who believe the Bible are not very well educated.

We have lost our minds!

I could go on. Let me leave you with a few Scriptures to chew on. Perhaps they can help explain the mess we are in.

Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge.”

Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:”

Psalm 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.”

America has become a “ship of fools” captained by fools. The ship has lost her moral rudder. The blind are leading the blind.

Psalm 2 “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh….

God is probably laughing to keep from crying.

America has lost her mind.
