The Consequences of Taking Prayer Out of School, an editorial by Pastor John Collins, John Collins Ministries

Changing the face of Christianity, John Collins Ministries and Pastor John Collins speaks out on the topics that most pastors will not address from a pulpit.

Children can be taught to behave differently, to think differently, and to believe differently. All it takes is the Holy Bible. We must care enough to want to teach them.”
— Pastor John Collins, Evangelist, John Collins Ministries

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2018 / -- For the first time in a long time there is a president in the White House who is not afraid to talk about God and country. Prayer and scripture are mentioned frequently by President Trump. There is still a need for a great deal of improvement in this country with Christianity and the time for that change is now. Pastor John Collins writes an editorial about the consequences from the removal of Christianity and prayer in school:

God has been banned from our public schools. Our Lord Jesus Christ has been expelled from our public schools. Prayer has been removed from our public schools. The Holy Bible is no longer welcome in our public schools. Is it any wonder why we are now living in a society that has forgotten to fear God? Our children now lack an education that includes the teachings of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ. By excluding the word of our Lord in school, this country has systematically destroyed the foundation of faith on which it was built. The consequences are high and will continue to mount.

Although this country was founded on Christianity, we have tolerance for all religions. This religious diversity is one of the reasons that we have found ourselves in this situation of denying God's admittance to public schools. The government will never advocate one religion over another. By deliberately choosing to be a country allowing all faiths and choosing none for our own, we have become a nation without God. As Patrick Henry wrote, "It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here." This freedom that we have afforded others is what has brought this nation to its current deplorable condition. By secularizing the public school system, we have chosen to NOT choose God so that none are offended and Christianity is not forced on anyone. This is what is considered politically correct according to man's law. What about God's law? Where are the works that glorify God to be found in the slap in the face that He and His Son have received from our government with their decision to exclude God, Jesus and the Bible from the schoolroom? How much are they to take? We have become a nation of conformists who bow to the demands of faithless citizens to secularize the public schools and strip the fountain of salvation from our children. At what point will enough be enough? Jesus said, "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." This nation is being led by the blind and is falling into a ditch. Is this what we want? We have abandoned God and Our Lord Jesus Christ. Do we want God and Jesus to do the same? By secularizing our public schools, this nation is ascribing to and promoting atheism. If you will not declare that you are for God and Christ, you are declaring that you are NOT. Jesus said, "Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven." Jesus also said, "He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathers not with Me scatters abroad." By deliberately choosing to NOT choose a religion, this nation's government is denying God and Christ. By refusing to allow public schools to study the bible, worship and pray, the students are being denied access to their God and their Savior while they are attending school. Schools were not designed to keep religion out.

With the removal of God from our public schools, there has been an increase in abhorrent behavior by our children. There has been an increase of drugs, alcohol and violence in schools. There have been numerous shootings on school grounds by children. There has been an increase in teen pregnancy, rape, and assaults. There has been an increase of bullying to the point of harassment and resulting in suicides. Foul language and disrespect flows from the mouths of children and is common not only during school but also at home with their parents. There is a lack of morals among our children and most disappointing there is a complete lack of self-respect among our children.

All it takes is the Bible.

The Bible is the manual on which we should base our lives. Within its covers lies a very simple and complete set of instructions that have been given to us from God on how he wants us to live our lives. The word of God is eternal.

It is awful to contemplate the future of this nation without God and Jesus being returned to our children's curriculum. It is awful to observe the downfall of a people happen before your eyes. It is terrible to witness the cost being paid by our children when it all could have been avoided. It is my prayer and my hope that this country awakens from its sleep to the reality of the destruction that is imminent and makes the changes that are necessary for the mercy of God to fall on us.

John Collins Ministries was recently launched by Pastor John Collins to redeem the Gospel and change the face of Christianity while continuing to give a hand up-not a hand out-to those in need. A president who is not fearful of citing scripture or giving testament to the power of prayer is a fresh view for Christianity. Pastor John Collins is determined to make Christianity something to emulate, not mock. It is time for change.
