How to Tell What is True — and How to Teach that Skill to Your Children

Here are 7 quick keys to how to tell what is true. This is an important lesson for children diagnosed as “learning disabled” because although they are bright, they are spending so much time on decoding, they have a hard time with higher order reading comprehension. Similarly, many of these children have poorer social skills — for any number of reasons. So, they may be behind in sorting our truth from “stories.” If we teach them directly, we can make up for much of that difficulty. However, today, it looks like everyone needs some lessons in pinpointing Truth and Error and sorting between the two. When one begins to think about some things in the discussion today, it is hard not to make fun of the gullibility. Let’s don’t be those who are snookered! More importantly, let’s protect our kids through more direct teaching of this life skill.

Listen, consider, and share!

If you do your own search, you will see that there has been a lot of energy to teach critical thinking in a way that debunks Christian faith — which isn’t logical at all. If all truth is known by what is empirical (which is their position), then they can not say anything about the metaphysical or supernatural — by definition. Thus they can not say that the supernatural is bunk, but only that they have no knowledge of it. Perhaps they are tone deaf, eh? That is logical! For more on this, see the work of Ravi Zacharias. www.RZIM.org Dr. Zacharias and his institute at Oxford did wonderful, high level apologetics. I can not account for why search engines are full of the tawdry — except for the psychological dynamic of projection, the impetus to snooker, and the need for this lesson.

Please share good resources, especially those aimed at children.

BTW, I mentioned my series Dangerous Times, thinking it was already ready, but alas, it required both editing and uploaded. However, it is in the store now. Just select “shop” from the tabs. It is great for both parents and teachers and I have it on a big big sale. It is a right now word.

Rewriting History

Explanation of how history is being rewritten and why. Necessary for a parent to know real history, how to detect the problem, and the options about what to do are obvious, once the true facts are uncovered.

Make a Sound in Schools

Pentecost is about empowerment. The Holy Spirit came in like the sound of a mighty rushing wind. We are not filled to speak the word. Make a sound. Let’s consider how we could make a sound in schools.

I think perhaps many people have discovered a lot about what is going on in school and not going on during our lockdown. Others might be alerted by the strange news of Marxist influence in riots or read the series about Marist influence in a series in the Epoch Times. I didn’t focus primarily on that, but there are many worrying trends. We need to do something about it. Even if we are homeschoolers, we are citizens. Even if we can isolate our children in Christian schools, they will live in the same world as the majority of children. Let’s consider what sounds we should be making.
