E. Ray Moore is running for the Lieutenant Governor’s position in South Carolina. Who is E. Ray Moore? According to his bio on the Exodus Mandate website:
“E. Ray Moore (Chaplain, Lt. Col. USAR Ret.), has served for over thirty-five years in pastoral ministry as a campus pastor, a congregational minister, an Army Chaplain or Director of a Christian ministry. Additionally, he has served as a campaign consultant or staff for several major political campaigns, including former Vice-President Dan Quayle’s first Senate race in 1980, former Congressman Mark Siljander’s first Congressional race in 1981 and Pat Robertson’s Presidential Campaign in 1986 to 1988…”
“Currently, Ray serves as President of Frontline Ministries, Inc., which focuses on prayer, revival and Christian education. He is the Director of the Exodus Mandate Project. He is author of Let My Children Go and co-authored with his wife, Gail, The Promise of Jonadab: Building a Christian Family Legacy in a Time of Cultural Decline. He is also the Executive Producer of the recently released film, IndoctriNation.”
With that background, it’s only logical that education is a main part of his political campaign agenda. Running as a Republican, Moore says that other South Carolina Republicans are not doing enough to save the state’s children from the educational agenda of the liberal Democrats. In speaking about education, Moore stated:
“It looks now as if the South Carolina GOP has committed to the ‘Truce Strategy’ on major issues in the upcoming 2014 elections,” he said. “For example, Gov. Haley has adopted much of the Democrat program on K-12 public education reform and abandoned any sort of school choice model. … Someone needs to carry the banner statewide for educational freedom (or school choice) and [the] need to grow K-12 private, Christian and home education.”
“A sub-theme would be ‘every church a school, every parent a teacher, every pastor a headmaster.”
“My candidacy would be a message and agenda-oriented one, focusing on the theme, ‘What once was can be again.’” We would focus on a restoration of pro-life, pro-family, pro-private, Christian and home education and pro-sound money (or a return to the gold standard) principles.”
“If we go back to these principles and our Christian heritage, we may find with God’s mercy ‘what once was can be again.’”
Moore believes that many Christians justify sending their kids to public schools by saying that they will be the light in a dark world, fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission to go out and make disciples of all nations. But he says this has been a dismal failure for the most part as we are losing an entire generation of children to the liberal anti-Christian propaganda of the public schools. He points out that by the end of elementary school, 40% of our children have abandoned the church and that number doubles to 80% by the time they finish their senior year of high school. Moore wrote about this in the foreword of Ray Fournier’s book Education Reformation:
“[Many evangelicals] who recognize the Great Commission as the primary focus of the New Testament and the principal mission of the church will ascertain through these pages that they have neglected the discipleship of their own children in the family.”
“All too often many of these dear brethren have sent their children into harm’s way in the public schools to fulfill the Great Commission or be ‘salt and light.’ This tactical error has had tragic consequences.”
“The Christian church in America is truly in the middle of a generational crisis. We are losing our children, we are losing our civilization.”
I’ve been involved in Christian and creation ministry for 20 years and I’ve seen countless testimonies and reports of how the public school system has converted Christian kids into atheists and agnostics by the time they graduate high school. Numerous public school teachers, especially science teachers go out of their way to challenge, mock and ridicule students who believe in Jesus, the Bible and creation. Christian students have been called stupid, morons, uneducated and superstitious in front of classmates.
I recall talking to one high school student who was a straight A student and aspired to become a pediatrician. His high school biology teacher gave him an F for the sole reason that the student did not believe in evolution. The student did A work and passed all of his tests with the highest average in his class, but was failed because he believed that God created the earth and all of life 6,000 years ago as the Bible states. Almost every day in class the teacher would harass him and challenge the student’s faith. However, this student knew how to defend his faith and challenged the teacher’s erroneous evidence for evolution. He eventually had to obtain an attorney who then got the school to change the student’s grade to the A he deserved. The last I heard from him, he had finished his college pre-med and was heading to medical school.
Our public schools, especially with Common Core, are more concerned about brainwashing an entire generation of kids to convert them into good little socialists rather than actually educating them. This generation of kids is being taught a fictitious anti-Christian history of America and that they need to rely on the federal government for all of their needs instead of relying on family and church for their needs. They are being taught to avoid parental authority and have sex as young as 10-12 years of age and that homosexuality is normal and Christian values are wrong and offensive.
This is why we need politicians like E. Ray Moore. Our children, grandchildren need men like this if there is any hope for them or our nation. When I see someone like Moore running for office, I recall the words of the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Jay who stated:
“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” (Henry Johnston, Ed. The Correspondence and Public Papers of John Jay, G. P. Putnam’s Sons, New York, 1893, Vol. IV)
