Contact Germany Embassy to encourage Germany Government to drop persecution of Home Schoolers.
DEAR FRIENDS OF EXODUS MANDATE:
Seldom do we ask you to exert an effort to contact governmental officials. This is a very important situation that has exercised the entire American home school community and also some home schoolers in other countries as well. We have had some contact with the leadership of the young home school community in Germany and they had requested prayers and support from us before this situation had come to emergency proportions. We ask you to read the reports below, pray for these families and take the appropriate actions requested. First read 1 Peter 5: 8-10 and pray. Please take action this week if you intend to help. We would be grateful if you could circulate this memo to your network too. Thanks and Blessings.
In His grip,
START MEMO HERE: The following link is to a WorldNet Daily story that appeared yesterday regarding the persecution of Christian homeschooling families by the German government. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42476.
Here is a link to a Focus on the Family article. http://www.family.org/cforum/fnif/news/a0035247.cfm. HSLDA brought this horrendous situation to the attention of the homeschool public first. http://www.hslda.org/hs/international/Germany/200501100.asp.
The following is an excerpt from their article describing what you can do to help. Please circulate this e-mail to homeschoolers and others sympathetic to the plight of the families in Paderborn who stand to lose their children and encourage them to contact the German embassy. Our most powerful weapon is our ability to appeal to and embarrass the German government. God's peace be with you, Bruce Shortt - Exodus Mandate (USA)
Thank you for standing together for freedom with your fellow homeschooling families around the world. The German government is sensitive to world opinion and we need enough people to contact them for them to take notice.

New Book Endorsed --
_The Harsh Truth About Public Schools_
Subject: Debate Over Christian Education in the Southern Baptist Convention Intensifies Because of Endorsements of New Book
COLUMBIA, SC, Dec 10 /Christian Wire Service/ -- When T.C. Pinckney and Bruce Shortt asked the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) to consider a resolution urging Baptist families to pull their children out of public schools and provide them with a Christian education, many in the SBC leadership dismissed the message of the resolution.
With the release of Bruce Shortt's book, _The Harsh Truth About Public Schools_, which details the arguments behind the resolution, ignoring the harm to our children done by public schools may no longer be possible. Some of the critics of the Pinckney-Shortt resolution may be surprised to learn that among the endorsers of Shortt's book are two key leaders of the conservative resurgence within the SBC, Dr. Paige Patterson, President of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Judge Paul Pressler.
Among other endorsers of _The Harsh Truth About Public Schools_ are Dr. D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries.
From the resolution at the Southern Baptist Convention in part reads:
Whereas, the Bible commands that fathers are to bring up their children in the training and admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:4), and all parents have an obligation to strive by all means to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and
Whereas, all authority in heaven and on earth belongs to Jesus, and He has commanded us to make disciples of our children and teach them to observe everything He has commanded (Mt. 28:19-20), and
Whereas, teaching our children everything that Jesus commanded involves their learning to think biblically about all the spheres of human thought, activity, and life (Dt. 6:4-9) so that they take every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor. 10:5), and
Whereas, our thinking is not to be conformed to this world's way of thinking, but our minds are to be renewed and sanctified by the truth of God's Word (Rom. 12:2; Jn. 17:17).
Individual copies of Shortt's new book _The Harsh Truth About Public Schools_ can be ordered at http://www.chalcedonstore.com/ . For bulk purchases, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (209) 736-4365.
