Public schools teach false religion rather than secularism

Today in a world cultures social studies class at my public high school, my teacher lied. He said in the beginning of class that when we learn about the religions of the world, we examine them from a historical perspective rather than a religious perspective.

Alright, I’m sort of okay with that. I don’t want him indoctrinating everyone else with Satanist doctrine. It would be better if it were explicitly Christian, but as long as public school remains “legal” they must abide by the first amendment.

But instead of keeping what he taught us completely secular, he later said that Jews, Muslims, and Christians all worship the same God, only calling Him by different names. He made no effort to make it clear that this was merely his personal opinion; he stated it as fact, and he even went on to say that a common misconception among religious folk is that they think that they worship different gods.

He’s loony. If he thinks he is the prophet of the “absolute truth” (of liberalism), maybe he should take the time to actually learn about the religions. In Christianity, there is only one faith (Ephesians 4:1-6), Jews rejected God the Father when they rejected His Son, and Muslims have a god (demon) completely different from the Christian God. The God of the Bible teaches evangelism, spreading the Gospel, and warning unbelievers. The Qur’an teaches you warning unbelievers is pointless; in other words, it teaches “tolerance”:

As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom. (Qur’an 2:6-7)

His lies about God and religion were met with no rebellion by the class. There are, supposedly, several Christians in the class, but I guess they were uneducated or even unbelieving.

    You are the one wno is wrong here, I will chalk that up to your inexperience and lack of education. After all, you are only in high school. EVERY scholar of comparative religions will agree with the statement that your high school social studies teacher made. All three religions worship the same God! They are all Children of the Book/ They are all Children of Abraham, followers of at least the first covenant between God and man. God the Father, Allah and YHWH are the same God, the God of the Old Testament, which all three religions consider scripture.

    Peace!

  2. Depends on how you define God.

    Your God is defined by the Scripture you use (e.g. John 1:1). Since Jews believe in part of the Christian Bible, and Muslims subscribe to belief in both the Bible and the Koran, then the most accurate statement would be that Jews worship their God (Old Testament), Christians worship that same Jewish God plus the God of love and peace (New Testament), and Muslims worship the Christian God plus the Qur’anic God.

    You could also simply define God by how you believe Him to be. Thus, my God is whatever is described in the Bible; your God is whatever you believe Him to be. The question of whether this God is truly God or if it is Satan depends on something that cannot be known except through belief….

    EVERY scholar of comparative religions will agree with the statement that your high school social studies teacher made. All three religions worship the same God!

    Do you know that for sure? Can you prove it by quoting every scholar of comparative religions? And why is the teacher claiming that they worship the same God, if God isn’t supposed to officially exist or non-exist in the secular classroom?
