What Is Man? Ancient Hebrew Gives Us Four Answers

THIS SHORT PIECE BY STEPHEN BEALE WILL HELP US UNDERSTAND MUCH BETTER WHY SCRIPTURE USES “MAN” AND NOT “HUMAN” WHEN REFERRING TO HUMAN BEINGS.  PERHAPS THIS WILL CALM ARGUMENTS? In Psalm 8, David wonders what man is that God would be mindful of him. While English has just one word, ancient Hebrew employed four words to refer to man, each highlighting a different essential aspect of his character and being. Long before the Greek tragedians, Shakespeare, and modern novels plumbed the depths of human […] Source: What Is Man?

NJ State Curriculum – Parents, Be in the Know!

  The Benchmark of Western Civilization Under Attack in NJ Schools Parents often think the LGBTQ curriculum developed by Garden State Equality (GSE) only focuses on sexual preferences, gender expression and gender identity. Unquestionably, it does those very things, but that is not the most dangerous portion of their curriculum. Most students will never struggle with their gender identity or their sexual attractions because of these lessons. However, what most students will question and become critical of is the institutions of the church and the family – the moral foundation of western civilization. According to GSE lesson plans, the long-standing social structures created over many centuries by individuals and like-minded groups, such as natural marriage between a man and a woman, is a problem and these types of social norms must be “dismantled”. That is their language. That is their agenda. To further inform you of the harmful contents within Garden State Equality’s LGBTQ curriculum, we have posted two new videos on our LGBT Curriculum series on YouTube and Facebook.

GARDEN STATE EQUALITY & NJ STATE CURRICULA

Do You Know What Is in The NJ LGBTQ Curriculum? The New Jersey LGBTQ curriculum is an unfunded mandate with the requirement schools implement it by September 2020. Because of the rapidly approaching September deadline, schools might be pressured to adopt and use the free curriculum that has been developed by the powerful LGBTQ political lobbying group in our state – Garden State Equality. The material and lessons they have created disregard accuracy and fact-based science to indoctrinate our children with radical left-wing activism. We’ve uncovered some of the objectionable classroom content Garden State Equality has placed in their curriculum which could be in our schools in a few short months. The age-inappropriate and radical curriculum lessons include examples like: 5th grade – Focuses on transgenderism, gender identity and expression, and transgender inclusive pronouns. 6th through 8th grade – Focuses on same sex relationships, encourage students to develop a toolkit to confront and dismantle “patriarchy”, “hyper masculinity”, “homophobia” and other immoral social structures for which the curriculum blames the traditional family and church. 9th grade – Focuses on deconstructing the masculine and feminine word structure in Romance languages such as Spanish. Directs students to develop phrases to replace using words that express...
