When children ruled the land?

Proverbs 23:13,14
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
The Scripture is very clear as to the child's place in the home and society. They are gatherers of wisdom, not producers. They are to glean from the wisdom of those placed in authority over them in the hopes that one day they will be godly wisdom bearers and sharers.

The Lord is my light; the God of heaven is my King and his law is at enmity with the governments of this world. This enmity to God's law is clearly seen in the belief that Mr. Ogden (nominated by President Obama for deputy attorney general) holds that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child binds the US. Please read the following information sent out by HSLDA. Though it may seem late, the Lord can work his will however he chooses, so please call your senator and "voice your opposition to Ogden's confirmation".

Also, please pray which is obviously more important. Jesus taught us in the Lord's Prayer to pray..."thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven...". Christ's rule is our nation's need. This is our world's need.

Isaiah 55:1-3
1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.Isaiah 40:10, 15,18,21-23
10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance:
18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?
21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from teh beginning? have ye not understood from teh foundations of the earth?
22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, adn spredeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

HSLDA: Call to Stop Confirmation of Justice Candidate

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

We previously informed you that David Ogden has been nominated by
President Obama for the position of deputy attorney general of the
United States, the second highest position in the Justice Department.

The Senate Judiciary Committee held their confirmation hearing for
Ogden on Feb. 5. The committee could vote on his confirmation as early
as tomorrow.

Home School Legal Defense Association urges you to immediately contact
your U.S. senator who is on the committee, as listed below, and voice
your opposition to Ogden's confirmation.

The most important reason to oppose Ogden's nomination is his belief
that the rules found in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
( asp?id=6077) are already binding on the
United States under the doctrines of international law.

For background information on this doctrine, see Michael Farris'
article, "A Deeper Understanding of the Threat of International Law"
( asp?id=6078) in the November/December 2007
Home School Court Report.

This means that Ogden believes that the legal rules contained in the
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child are already binding on the
United States, even though this treaty has never been sent to the U.S.
Senate for ratification.

Homeschoolers have long understood the dangers of this international
treaty, which contains the core principle that the government may
decide what it believes is best for each child without any proof of
wrongdoing by the child's parents. Ogden promoted the use of this UN
treaty in the Supreme Court to reach the conclusion that America's
courts have the power to overrule state law, using international law
as their guidepost for constitutional interpretation. Unfortunately,
he was successful in doing so in the Roper case.

It also means that Ogden is a proven advocate for the position that
international law should be used to interpret the Constitution of the
United States
and bind the decisions of our elected officials.

If this weren't enough, Ogden has a history of representing Playboy
and other purveyors of pornography in high-profile legal cases. He
also challenged the legality of using filters on library computers to
protect children from seeing pornography. It would be hard to imagine
how Ogden would faithfully enforce the nation's pornography laws if he
is placed in this position at the Justice Department.

The United States Senate needs to understand right now that the
American public will not countenance the idea of the nation being led
by people who believe that international law trumps American law.
Please call your senator today to register your opposition to David
