The National Center for Life and Liberty is coming off of one of its busiest months ever. With the addition of new offices in North Carolina and California, we are growing and expanding in ways only God could orchestrate—geographically, in the services we provide, and in the numbers of churches, individuals, and families who are joining and supporting this much-needed ministry. We've also hired two more attorneys and added new team members in our marketing and publications department, all of whom are excited and eager to use their talents and gifts to further the NCLL's mission of protecting and defending the values upon which our nation was founded.
In a recent Gallup poll gauging how Americans felt about public education, 30% said they were “very dissatisfied,” while only 10% were “very satisfied.” Another study by the US Department of Education reported that the number of homeschooled children in the United States climbed by 61.8 percent between 2003 and 2012 (the last date this study was done).
If nothing else, these studies show us that parents are considering other options in their search to find the best educational choices for their children and families. We applaud parents for investigating and praying about these important decisions.
You’ve heard the phrase “Freedom is never free.” How true that statement really is, because the freedom we have in America is ours by no accident. It is a direct result of the brave, courageous men and women who have gone before us, who were willing to risk their own lives and their own liberties for the sake of a new nation—one conceived in liberty. Our flag represents the freedom so many fought and died for and that countless men and women are still fighting and dying for today. A freedom that recognizes the natural, God-given right not just to worship, but to live out our respective faiths in every aspect of our lives. And although these freedoms are, and have been, under tremendous assault for years, the battle is raging stronger than ever. We fight an enemy determined to strip God from the very fabric of our nation. An enemy seeking to obliterate biblical Christianity on the altar of relativism, atheism, pluralism, and secular humanism. An enemy that would have us believe that God (if He exists at all) had no part in the founding and preservation of this great nation.
