Does it take a village? – Blog Post

During the 90’s we had a lot of Bill and Hillary. It was rough. I remember bill’s antics in the White House and his wife’s socialist tendencies in her speeches and book endorsements. One such book was “It takes a village”. It can be summed up in the title. She pushed the idea that the raising of the children in America wasn’t primarily the responsibility of the parents, but the community. As Wikipedia states:

Clinton presents her vision for the children of America. She focuses on the impact individuals and groups outside the family have, for better or worse, on a child’s well-being, and advocates a society which meets all of a child’s needs…..

The book emphasizes the shared responsibility that society has for successfully raising children,

Clinton notes in the book many institutions responsible in some way for raising children, including: direct family, grandparents, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, employers, politicians, nonprofits, faith communities, businesses, and international governmental groups.

While this has a nice Utopian ring to it, the flavor is actually socialism without a Biblical Standard. So your children really aren’t yours to raise… you’re sharing the responsibility with your good comrades… er…fellow citizens all around you.

Let’s go to our Main Stream Media outlets to get a better idea of this teaching…

You can really see this in our media’s attitude toward homeschooling as well. They are very quick to pursue legislation against homeschooling parents, because it goes against their ethos “It takes a village” to raise your kids. However this drivel is the opposite of Biblical teaching. Listen to Voddie Baucham on the subject.

No Secular Humanists… It doesn’t take a village to raise a child…. it takes loving parents who seek to obey the God of the scriptures. See Duet 6. Special Thanks to HSLDA that has been fighting for Homeschooling rights for 35 years.
