June 2016 Dear Friends of MACS, I trust your summer is going well and that you are looking forward to our time together at our Great Lakes Christian Educators’ Convention in Kalamazoo on October 6 & 7, 2016. We have put together an outstanding line-up of work shop speakers and exhibitors. To date we are planning on over 110 work shops to assist your teachers and faculty as they teach, guide and influence your students in the Cause of Christian Education. Our general session speakers of Dr. Jackson and Dr. Jeff Redlin have a passion for Christian Education and will ‘Ring the Bell’ for every teacher engaged in the sacred calling of not just the heart of education but also the education of the heart. We are working diligently to have as many exhibitors there to assist you in fundraising and service of your school. We already have over 30 exhibitors registered with many more to come between now and convention time. Please send your staff to GLCEC.net for more information about the convention. Additional copies of this letter can be found at MACShome.org for anyone you wish to send a link to. Respectfully, Tim...Learn More
MACS Monitor June 2016 “Hatred of Walpole was almost the only feeling which was common to them. On this one point, therefore, they concentrated their whole strength. With gross ignorance, or gross dishonesty, they represented the Minister as the main grievance of the state. His dismissal, his punishment, would prove the certain cure for all the evils the nation suffered.” Thomas Babington Macauley The cultural shift we are witnessing with accommodations for the LGBT community is breathtaking. That is not to say that it happened overnight. No, this constant ebbing away from traditional marriage and erosion of the traditional family has been in motion for decades. We are watching it gather almost rip-tide proportions. The farther we drift from the Original Intent of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution, the more you will see society become the law of the land. When society says there are no absolutes, society has just made itself absolute. When I testified at the State Board of Education hearing on the transgender bathroom directive, it became painfully obvious that we have left the cognitive realm and we now live in the effective realm. Facts, history and evidence don’t factor in to their decision making. It only matters how you feel about something. This whole issue is an issue of their making. They are the aggressors in pushing this agenda. They will not accept anything less than extinguishing any light of family, decency and modesty. While they present themselves as victims only wishing to live a life of love and roses, their tactics of silencing through intimidation are pretty obvious. The day of their supreme court victory...Learn More
The Michigan Department of Education, State Board of Education recently issued a press release extending the public comments on their proposed guidelines for accommodating LGBTQWERTY students in Michigan’s Public Schools. A copy of that press release may be found here: https://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,4615,7-140-5373_5379-380430–,00.html We are facing the tyranny of the vocal minority over the will of the silent majority. The Bible very clearly states that God created us male and female. Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” The Lord Jesus restates this “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” Mark 10:6 It appears that the discussion of male and female identity is now subject to debate and speaking up for God-ordained order is now off limits. If that is true, then we are no longer approaching the abyss, we are staring in to it. The Ph.D’s on the State Board of Education are not ignorant of the fact that the Bible clearly defines male and female. Everyone of them know that to be true. Rather, they believe that they know better. One politician, when asked about this ‘request for comments’, brushed the whole issue aside with a snippy “elections have consequences.” if you don’t like the positions of the Board of Education, vote them off. MACS is taking the initiative on this and I’m confident this issue is not going away. Until then, “let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” Hebrews...Learn More
