John Dewey – A Signer of The Humanist Manifesto

(Edited/updated 04-10-14)

“If it works, let’s do it!” It is the way of today’s world. No guide lines, no Bible and no God. As long as the majority says it’s good, it’s good; if society says it’s bad and it’s against the law of the land then, so be it.

Years ago, according to John Dewey and according to today’s American democratic society, people should treat each other with respect and should demonstrate a willingness to give up their present views for the views of the majority. No absolutes, no black and white right or wrong is what giving room to a satanic controlled “thinker” has resulted in–Pragmatism in its’ worst form; this is probably better described as instrumentalism.

The following is quoted from another site:

“In 1933 Dewey was one of 34 signers to a document called the Humanist Manifesto. (Dewey scholars say he had a hand in writing it.) After its introductory paragraphs there are fifteen numbered paragraphs each telling what humanists believe.

“Point four is very like the first paragraph of Dewey’s My Pedagogic Creed written 36 years earlier: It says you are not much more than a product of society.

“The consequence of this is point fourteen. Here is that point in full:

“The humanists are firmly convinced that existing acquisitive and profit-motivated society has shown itself to be inadequate and that a radical change in methods, controls, and motives must be instituted. A socialized and cooperative economic order must be established to the end that the equitable distribution of the means of life be possible. The goal of humanism is a free and universal society in which people voluntarily [yeah right] and intelligently cooperate for the common good. Humanists demand a shared life in a shared world.”

Make room for calling good evil and evil good and you better like it by keeping your mouth shut if you disagree!

Same site–different page:

“In the humanities Dewey’s “unit” of thought is society, the least element by which everything is measured. He doesn’t see, and doesn’t want to see, individual men. Especially he doesn’t want to attribute achievements to individual men.”

John Dewey is known as the father of modern education. I first learned this in the sixties, during my school years. It didn’t mean anything to me then but it sure does now. Please check this out and then go here, http://www.dewey.area24.net/, if you want to know more. Afterwards, hopefully, you will homeschool your children, if you aren’t already.

What has happened to America? I believe whole-heartedly that when the ones behind the pulpits decided to not “give God His reward of His sacrifice” and instead began chasing after the things of this world–their best life now (Joel Olsteen, all the TBN preachers and all under their influence)–is when our country began its’ descent into slavery, spiritually and physically. Understand more; take time to listen to the following sermon:

AMEN!

This has caused me to see and learn things about my own self that I’ve never considered: If we are one of His then we are a true witness of the life of Jesus Christ living within us.
