Back in February of this year, the Humanist Society of Scotland secured a ban of a Christian book, ‘a fun and friendly guide to moving to secondary school’. It was claimed the book may cause distress to children due to a reference to prayer!
In an amazing display of hypocrisy, it has emerged that the British Humanist Association will be distributing a book, ‘The Young Atheists Handbook – Lessons for Living a Good Life without God’ to every secondary school in Scotland!
The clearly demonstrates that attempts to ban Christian literature from schools have nothing to do with protecting children from religious faith – they are simply trying to promote their own ‘faith system’ to impressionable youngsters. If they were so confident that atheism was a reasonable explanation of our existence, you would imagine they would be content to simply allow children to make up their own minds without this desperate indoctrination.
Jesus Christ severely warned anyone from damaging the faith of young children. This activity is a serious offence in God’s eyes – we pray that their hard hearts would be opened and that they would seek the Lord for forgiveness. It will be bad enough on judgment day to have rejected Jesus Christ personally – to so actively target children to deceive them into rejecting Christ is indefensible from God’s perspective and is deeply shocking.
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:2-6)
