Teach Or Perish

“Then shall they call upon me,
But I will not answer;
They shall seek me early,
But they shall not find me.”
Proverbs 1:28.

The forces of the anti-Christ and the anti-Christian, are now sweeping the world. This is no longer a time when we can discuss, write, and debate. Whether the time can be used by Christians to tell who Christ is – is not an option. The battle has started. War has been discussed against us and it is now in the attack stage. The Black Lives Matter (BLM) and the Antifa group want the obliteration of any vestiges of the mission of Christ.


Paul wrote in Romans 13: 11, about the call to arms because the full force of the Roman Empire had swung into action to not support or uphold this new idea of death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, the Nazarene. One thing that the early Church cried out about was there was no King – but Jesus. This aggravated the government.

“And that, knowing the time,
That now it is high time to awake out of sleep.
For now is our salvation
Nearer than when we believed.”


There can be no doubt in any reasonable mind that our public-school system was, and is, a flop and a failure. We can go as far back as Ronald Reagan, who cried for the dismemberment of the Education Department.


Recently there was an article which said that no black males in Baltimore could pass the mathematics test in the High School grade-level.


This was within forty miles from the headquarters the of Education Department. Did you hear of anything to change this? Apparently, the Plantation for blacks is still in existence.

The rule is to never believe in any solution that is supported by the state or federal government.



Jesus told us in John 9:4, that there will be a time when work for Christ will not be possible.

“I must work the works of him that sent me,
While it is day: the night cometh,
When no man can work.“


The Church has been nurtured by apostasy, lawless, and weak people who are afraid.  The people will be taught by men from some seminary that does not hold to the truth of the Book – The Bible. There is a call for men and women to not wear ear plugs, or face masks which muffle the clear voice of the writings of the New Testament.


These churches do no cry out as a group for a Godly change in the curriculum of the public schools. There will be an island of a small group that wants a change but for the most – no cry is ever made. Look at these groups:

  • Disciples of Christ,
  • Methodist,
  • Presbyterian,
  • Pentecost,
  • Baptist – all groups
  • Anglican
  • Lutheran
  • Greek Orthodox.


The Roman Catholics are trying; but at this stage, they are weak. There is no group – whether protestors or not, that cannot double in size and giving provided the leadership seek prosperity.


In the past, the American public school was considered a bulwark for Christian thought. Morality was taught openly as a solution for the young. That day is gone.

In fact, most people are secular and are actually amoral. There is no teaching of morality.


A few days ago, an older woman came to my office to find her husband who had been taken from a nursing home by his two daughters. She could not find him. In discussing the case with her. I found out these two had been living together for three decades. He had told her he was married but did not know if he was divorced or not. This fits into the modern mold of morality for people. This is an example of their time period: Amoral.


It has been stated that Horace Mann is “the father of the American public schools.”  He now is seldom discussed but he insisted there was an underlying principal of religion and morality. Horace Mann was a Church Man. Later, he was the president of Antioch College that was founded by the Christian Church of Ohio.


He was committed to the separation of church and state. The public schools were very close to American Protestantism. There were certain groups that did not like the public schools; these were the atheists, deists, and Rome Catholics.  Remember, Horace Mann was a man who believed in prayer.


The man who followed Horace Mann was William J. Harris.  He thought there was, and should be, a means to departmentalize schools so that social virtues could be made a part of the school.


Then came the philosophy of John Dewey. He did not feel that Christianity had any place in the public school system. This was a direct attack upon Christians as a part of the public school.  No longer do we believe -according to the ungodly, that Christianity should be a part of training the young.


This is one of the reasons trouble is constantly found in the public schools. Logical teaching. No! Morality, No!  Ten Commandments. No! The Church of Jesus Christ has a history of only partially attacking the problems. Here are some attacks:

  • Secularism,
  • Materialism,
  • Humanism,
  • Socialism,
  • Constitutionalism,
  • Confusion in right and wrong,
  • Communism,
  • Marxism, and
  • Darwinism.


Today’s youth does not think clearly. Life itself, has little or no meaning.


Parents know that the public schools are a mess. The youth who are in rebellion in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Louisville, and Chicago are products of the public schools and have no idea of the basic beliefs of Christian faith.


This means we cannot sustain the philosophy of John Dewey. This has hurt clear thinking and learning. Rebellion will only become a way of life. The idea would be to remove the children from public schools.


The public schools are nests of chaos.


The Church, if it is to have an influence for the next ten or twenty years must resolve the issues of the family breaking up. Such places as Chicago, Baltimore, and New York City already suffer the lack of the Family Unit. The communist, socialist and Democratic Party have set their goal of removing Christianity from the marketplace. It seems that Jesus Christ is not to be tolerated.


The silliest action is the current policy to rewrite the history of this nation. Anything which shows slavery must be blanked out. In the past, the Muslims have, and now still do, support ownership of one human by another.


The “Fake Media” wants to stir up fear and mass guilt. These liars intend to defeat Donald J. Trump. The New York Slime paper promotes this drivel. The Washington Compost is the leader in the destruction of the ideas of silencing any others.


Every church has its own difficult problems that must be overcome. Here is a list that you may have considered:

  • Finances,
  • Older adults,
  • Lack of leadership,
  • Personal problems,
  • Never explained why needed,
  • Criteria,
  • Minister does not know needs,
  • No Sunday school,
  • No search for material, and
  • No Vacation Bible School.


Every one of the above can easily be shot down.


You can easily see the handwriting on the wall. If you do not want to know what is happening, then it is suggested you read Daniel 5:24-22.

“And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this; But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified: Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.“


After Daniel gave the meaning – that very night the king was slain. Time is not on our side. The end is going to happen soon.


People like Pelosi, Schumer, A.O.C, Biden and other party supporters will bring about an end to our Republic. The evangelistic Protestants know that something must be done. They are late starting to fight back. It is almost as if these people were ruled out. The Roman Catholics have known for a century that the teachings have failed, mainly because they only talked about the hierarchy in the church program. Then they refused to enforce the rules – no divorce, abortion, and evangelize. Both Protestants and Romans showed little or no strength.

The Church must commit itself to the fight. The rule is simple – Teach or perish.


As a believer, we must not accept Jesus Christ as being too white. As far as I know, Christ was none of the following:

  • Black,
  • Brown,
  • Red skin, or
  • Tan.


It seems that women must take a more active part in making the change in how this nation will look like in the future. The female must demand that the schools upgrade themselves. Men should be the pioneers in the effort, but you should not depend upon men to be the flag bearers of change.


Thus far women have not called for the about face that is required to act. First, the women see the publics schools as a babysitting place for eight or nine months of every year. The time spent is from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., five days a week. They can form carpools for the children. The youth are under control of other adults for at least nine hours Monday thru Friday. Then on Saturday, it is sport days. Mothers don’t seem to want to check on who is controlling their juveniles.


The working mothers wants the state to tell them what must be accomplished. This is how it has been for the last 60 years. The female women are lazy. They have sown to the wind and reaped the whirlwind. Look and see these cities:

  • Seattle,
  • Portland,
  • New York City,
  • Chicago,
  • Atlanta, and
  • These are but a few.


The parents will not be helped by their offspring in the future. The prophet Hosea 8:7, gives us a picture of the outcome of this attitude.

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.“


What will happen now that Christian teaching is not a serious consideration?



In the Old Testament, God was very concerned when sin was not condemned. The youth are to be taught. Solomon taught this in Proverbs 22:6. It makes sense.

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.“


The book of Leviticus is a book to learn. We should never forget that the Almighty instructed the religious leaders also. One passage is in Leviticus 14:57, which was about disease.

To teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is the law of leprosy.”


The most notable is Exodus 20:1-2, that starts the Ten Commandments.

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.“


All of these are informing us how we are to act. This is an abbreviated context:

  • No other God’s before the Lord,
  • No images,
  • No vain use of his name,
  • No dishonor of parents,
  • No murder,
  • No adultery,
  • No theft,
  • No lies,
  • No coveting.


These are the basics of the criminal statutes of this nation. We should never let these be removed from our statutes. When these are not taught,  then the end will come. The rule is simple. Teach or perish.


The last words spoken on by Jesus told us to teach in Matthew 28:19-20, we are told to teach.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”


Paul spoke to some women in Macedonia (Europe), a teaching as found in in Acts 16:13. Here are some women who heard about Jesus.

 “And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a riverside, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.“


Paul was always teaching. You can read this word in this as set out in Acts 17:10-11.

 “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”


If we want the America that we knew in the past, then we must teach. People today are unlearned. Scripture is a foreign concept to people. Teaching has not been a priority. The liberal seminaries produce men and women who are not able to tell others of Jesus. Sunday Schools are no more. Vacation Bible Schools are seldom found and if they are, their depth is shallow. Summer camps are for entertainment. Adults are too busy barbecuing. Teach or perish.



  1.  Teach or Perish,
  2.  Ignorant lazy mothers,
  3.  Prophets taught, and
  4.  Paul taught.


God Bless and Keep Our Republic.





“”I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,
A higher plane than I have found;
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where those abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.””
