New Opportunity

Every now and then a new opportunity comes along that has the potential to set you alight with enthusiasm. Recently I have had just such an opportunity. It involves promoting the concept of motivating parents to finance their children for future higher education so that one day their children may have the opportunity attend some form of tertiary education later on in life via a scholarship provided through the interest from investments that a vast membership is able to provide. This is even more important in this day and age where successive governments are cutting grants and charging parents with the responsibility of providing for their own children to attend higher education along with the resultant ever increasing burden of student debt falling on the shoulders of an already worried job seeking graduate. I believe the concept to be wonderful and much needed for I testify along my wife that we became members of this society some 15 years ago for the benefit of our youngest son who will now use the contributions we made over the years to fund his poly tech course next year. What I think is really neat is that I now have the chance to encourage other young families to also think ahead using the same not-for-profit friendly society that runs the programme in my country which is, by the way, the only organisation to do so in New Zealand.

Now Paul had a similar concept in mind for the church situated in Colossae only his thought was for motivation to obey the gospel and the spiritual well-being that comes as a result. In Colossians 4:2-3 his desire is for the gospel of Jesus Christ to be spread so that many others may enjoy the fruits of eternal life in heaven along with the Divine Godhead and the throne of obedient throughout the ages. This, he believed, could be accomplished by praying to God that “God may open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ.” You see, it is only through the word that can we know why and how we need to be saved because “faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). The word received is that which saves (James 1:21) from which man finds the only way in which the burden of sin may be lifted from his shoulders.

A new opportunity exists and abounds every day to motivate us to this higher thought; the trick is to take that motivation and use it to benefit souls for eternity.

The real reason education is failing

Sir Ken Robinson articulates it well to me what is wrong with the education system the western world employs. It is very amusing his take on what the analysts have come to blame for those that fail, that is the attention deficient children in the USA who are being pumped with Ritalin to pacify what is essentially bored minds.

Followup to the nation’s increasing depravity

A  pregnant 17 year old girl tells of her experience regarding New Zealand’s sex education in a followup article in the New Zealand Herald.

Some excerpts:

A pregnant teenager says sex education in schools does not prevent young people from having sex – if anything, it encourages it.

She said her class was also taught that anal sex was “perfectly fine” as long as condoms were used, that the morning-after pill wasn’t always effective, and it was “okay” to abort.

She lost her virginity at 14, a year after she was taught about sex at school and the fact it was “okay as long as you consented”

The liberal loony left just don’t get it.  They are destroying what used to be a pretty decent society when my mum and dad brought me to New Zealand in 1959.

A depraved nation in action

New Zealand is a nation well and truly on the path of depravity. To illustrate one only need visit the New Zealand Herald to see what teachers in NZ schools are involved in.

It is quite ironic that as from today teachers are required to report suspected child abuse to a hotline specially setup for that purpose yet they are allowed, nay, they feel it is their superior ability to teach children as young as 12 years of age about oral sex, sodomy, homosexuality and even say it is alright to explore a girls genitalia just so long as she consents. What a pack of hypocrites for they are doing nothing less than encouraging young male bravado’s with the knowledge and consent to go rape and abuse children. Some teachers of New Zealand children are nothing more than sexual perverts.
