Is It Right for a Christian to Expose False Prophets and False Teaching ? (by Damon Whitsell)

Matthew 7:1 is misused with more and more frequency.




I. It Is Right To Practice Biblical Judgment
One of the most misused verses in the Bible is, “Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matt. 7: 1). Every Scripture verse should be read in its context, if we are to properly understand the true meaning. In vs. 2-5 of this same chapter it is evident that v. 1 is referring to hypocritical judgment. A brother who has a beam in his own eye should not be judging the brother who may have a mote in his eye. The lesson is plain, you cannot judge another for his sin if you are guilty of the same sin.


Those who cling to “Judge not, that ye be not judged, ” to condemn those who expose error should read the entire chapter. Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing,  ” (v. 15)…

Common Core: Indiana Blazed the Trail

cc problsI caught Mike Pence, governor of Indiana, on FOX News this morning.  Indiana, the first state to completely, and rightfully so, to dump Common Core, has set the example for the rest of the nation to follow.

While Governor Pence was only given a few minutes on air, he highlighted the fact that Indiana wrote their own standards, written for teachers and by teachers for the benefit of the students. No lies and no coercion was necessary for them to be adopted, because the standards were written by the right people, for the right reasons, with no hidden agendas.

Indiana refused to allow federal dollars pressure them into adopting destructive education policy. They could not be bought.

Indiana will thrive. Excellent education does not need more money thrown at it to exist…teachers just need to be able to teach.

Education as it should be.

Which state will be next to walk down the trail that Indiana blazed for us?



Indiana Common Core Replaced with State Standards


Bill Gates’ Sobering 2009 Speech to Legislators

Were there ever any doubts?


On March 13, 2014, Bill Gates had dinner with 80 senators and other elected officials. Given his keynote the following day to members of the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), make no mistake that Gates used his time with the senators and other officials to push the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

However, Gates is more than CCSS. Gates is the entire spectrum of reforms, and he is more than willing to use his influence to promote his opinion of educational reform to those supposedly elected By the People.

The following text is an excerpt from Gates’ 2009, speech to the National Council of State Legislatures, which “co-chair” Gates offered as part of his complete speech on so-called education reform.

The entire speech is worth a sobering read:

We’ve been in an economic crisis for a year or so. But we’ve been in an education crisis for decades…
