There is a war going on to gain control of our minds. This war has been the central war of the ages. The first record of the battle is found in Genesis chapter 3 when Eve listened to the serpent and allowed her logic, emotions, and reason overrule God and her husband’s lead. Adam lost his role of leader to his wife Eve. He disobeyed God’s one and only command by following Eve to eat the forbidden fruit in Eden. The control of a person’s mind is accomplished by teaching acceptable rules, actions, and traditions to us as children. Through all of history, the control of ideas have caused wars and today, it is being fought silently behind the closed doors of corporate elitists.
Before 1840, the role of education in America was accomplished through mostly private institutions or home schooling and literacy rates were high. In 1902, John D. Rockefeller in association with Frederick T. Gates formed the General Education Board. Through this Board, $324.6 million dollars were provided to fund public schools all over America from 1902 to 1964. This one organization is responsible for the creation of the public school system we know today, many black colleges, improved farming, and improved medical education. But despite the overall benefits, it has also provided the framework for today’s lower quality and standardized education leading the majority of our children from the classroom to the workplace as employees. In 2003, the National Association for Adult Literacy reported that 14% of all Americans would have extreme difficulty with reading and writing comprehension. We have lost our ability to think critically.
This is a quote from Rev. Gates:
“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science. We are not to raise up among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians. Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply.”
– Rev. Frederick T. Gates, Business Advisor to John D. Rockefeller Sr., 1913 Frederick T. Gates, “The Country School of Tomorrow,” Occasional Papers, no.1 (New York: General Education Board, 1913), p. 6.

This education system of today is broken. It is no secret to our teachers. It is no secret to our government. It is no secret to our highest corporate leaders. It is a secret to our parents and children. And maintaining this secrecy is good for corporate America. They have a limitless supply of docile workers, many of whom have no ability to critically assess their own life situation and have nowhere to turn for answers. Our churches tell their parents to send their children to public school in order to get “social interaction.” But is education and social interaction enough to build a strong base of intelligent socially thinking leaders or simply enough to build a base of compliant socially obedient followers.
Albert Einstein said: “Never confuse education with intelligence.” Have we become so educated that we equate education with intelligence?
Donald Trump Jr. has released his new book on Nov. 5 “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” it shows how the Liberal left is working to silence the conservative voice in America. My own blog has been out less than a month and I have already endured a Facebook account lock when I tried to tell my Facebook friends about my book and blog. If you are conservative in any way, this form of censorship should be alarming, but until it happens it happens to you, the general attitude is “so what?” (Even among my own friends.) My book doesn’t simply rant about our problems and cite examples of proof. There is no shortage of these kinds of books. Even Mr. Trump’s book is a great and current example of this. My book specifically tells what Christians can do to turn our country around. It outlines step by step how you can individually make a leadership impact wherever you live and no matter where you worship. That is the difference between my book and every other book I’ve read through the years.
Why is this book specifically written to Christians? It is simply because of my personal belief in the Holy Spirit that unites every member of the Body of Christ. I won’t say the family of God, because God’s family includes anyone who worships Him with or without Holy Spirit. The Body of Christ loves, honors, and obeys Jesus Christ in the Spirit. Is it possible to love without the spirit? Yes! Is it possible to worship God without the spirit? Yes! Is it possible to build a personal relationship with God Almighty without the spirit? Not if the Word of God is true. It is impossible to tell the difference between Holy Spirit and false spirit revelation without being a child of God. That is the new birth Jesus spoke of.
I do not teach about character development. There are many great books about that and you don’t need to be a Christian to have good character. I do not teach about leadership development. There are many great books about that and you don’t need to be a Christian to be a great leader. But if you want to be a Christian leader with good character and a strong, personal relationship with God Almighty, my book shows how to build that step by step. It shows how to rise above the logic and reason of intelligence alone and live in the realm of spiritual faith. This is where the great leaders in the First Century Church lived and how they converted the Roman Empire to Christianity.
The majority of the people in our country still confess a belief in Jesus. However, very few can confess and prove a relationship with Jesus. If you want to make a lasting change that returns our country to Godly standards in every area of life and living, then my book will show how you can get started. The rest is up to you and God. I am not telling anyone what to believe or how to live. That is the role of your church and your free will. But if you are struggling with building your walk of faith to become a leader in your business, community, state, or nation, my book will reveal Biblical truths that have been hidden in plain sight. You don’t need to leave your church. You don’t even need to have a church, but you do need to have absolute faith in God.
If things continue to get worse, it may become a life and death necessity to know when God is speaking to you and telling you what to do. But in order to change the things we know are bad, we need God’s help. Isn’t it time to mature your own spiritual life to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God walks and talks with you every moment of every day of your life? Be sure to like and share this message.
