Proverbs 24:11-12 tells us to “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?”
If the message of IndoctriNation resonates with you in a special way and you feel the Lord leading you to do something about it, please take a moment to review the various tools we have developed for you to partner with us in getting this message out.
Do you want to effectively communicate the dangerous philosophies within the Public School System to your friends, family and neighbors? Host an IndoctriNation screening!
You can play an important part in getting out the urgent message of IndoctriNation by helping screen the film in your own community. Whether it's in your home, your church or a local theater, you can be the one that brings this important message to your area.
This is an opportunity for individuals, families and churches to graciously reach out to their communities and help them become aware of the tremendous spiritual and physical risks involved in sending children into the government school system. This is also a great way for homeschool support groups to have a fund raiser and recruit new homeschooling families.
There's more! Subject to availability, your event can feature IndoctriNation filmmakers Joaquin Fernandez and/or Colin Gunn, LIVE via Skype, or possibly attend in person for a Q&A session. Colin and Joaquin have carefully studied the subject of public school education and are prepared to answer audience questions on the subject. They can also talk about Christian film production and share some of the behind-the-scenes experiences of producing IndoctriNation.

The IndoctriNation Project is committed to presenting the biblical evidence for God's desire that children be trained in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
in 2011 we released our award-winning film that the Lord continues to bless. Countless families have watched the film and have removed their children from the government schools. Others have repented from the temptation to put their homeschooled children back in the schools. And still others have strengthened their resolve to run the good race and reach the finish line, regardless of the cost.
In 2012 we published our must-read book is proving to be a powerhouse of information that many are using to further their understanding of the problems plaguing our communities. It is a tool for cultural reformation that we pray will help open the eyes of those in positions of influence.
In 2013, we are releasing AdoctrinaMiento, and we are praying the Lord will allow us to reach the Spanish-speaking church with our message as well.
And in 2014, we are publishing The Christian Education Manifesto, perhaps the most significant part of our strategy. This will be a collaborative effort, bringing together some of the most recognized Christian leaders in America, in a joint declaration regarding the need for children of Christians to receive a Christian education. We are praying for the Lord to lead us in our desire to call for a Christian Education Summit, across the denominational lines, where God-loving men and women will come together to call the church to task on this important issue.
Our prayer is that God will move in the hearts of thousands of pastors all over this nation and that the church will speak clearly and boldly to countless congregations with this simple message: remove your children from the public schools and trust God for how to give them a Christian education.
Following is a simple draft, a working document for your consideration. Please send us your ideas, edits, concerns, and additions—we want this document to reflect what the Spirit of God is saying to the church, a declaration coming directly from God's Word, and we covet your insight and recommendations.

A Christian Education Manifesto (Working Draft)
We believe that children have been entrusted to their parents for the purpose of caring for them, training them, and educating them for the glory of God and the good of others.
We believe that providing a Biblical education for all children is a direct application of the Great Commission and the Great Commandment and that it is every Christian parents’ primary responsibility to participate in the evangelism and discipleship of their own children. (Matthew 28:18–20)
We believe that God created every believer in Christ to accomplish good works for His Glory and that the evangelism and discipleship of children, which is at the core of a Biblical education, is one of the most important good works that God has commanded us to do.
We believe that God has given to us His inerrant, infallible, authoritative, and sufficient Word, the Bible, in order to fully equip us for every good work, including the education of our children. (Ephesians 2: 10) (2 Timothy 3:16–17)
We believe the education of children belongs to the child’s family supported by the church, not to the state, and that the protection, training, fellowship, accountability, and encouragement that are provided by the local church are essential for the success of our children’s training and education. (Ephesians 6:4, Psalm 78:5-8, and Deuteronomy 6:1-7) (Genesis 2:18–24, Proverbs 1:8, Proverbs 6:20, Song of Solomon 8:2) (Acts 16:1, 2 Timothy 1:5).
We believe that the public, government-operated school systems in the United States of America, and in all other nations of the world, have become active promoters of the atheistic religion known as Secular Humanism and that the laws and policies which now require the normalization of atheism, radical feminism, homosexuality and abortion make it impossible to fulfill ones biblical responsibilities as a Christian parent while making use of such schools.
We believe that we are not to be unequally yoked together with unbelievers in any way and that to willingly become partners with unbelievers in our God-given responsibility to train and educate our children is a violation of this clear Biblical principle. (2 Corinthians 6:14–16a)
We believe teachers must be known to the parent to have a godly character because a student will become like his teacher. (Luke 6:39–40)
We believe that because bad company corrupts good character, the training and education of children should take place in an environment where godliness is exalted and encouraged and never in the context of worldly wisdom which leads to destruction. (Proverbs 13:20) (1 Corinthians 15:33) (Proverbs 22:15) (Proverbs 13:20) (Proverbs 22:6)
We believe that because a Biblical education involves strong character building, in the context of a personal relationship between a student and his teacher, and because God has ordained parents as a child’s primary care-givers and teachers, a strong parent-child relationship of daily life discipleship is essential to success in child training and education. (Deuteronomy 6:1–9)
We believe that the content of a Biblical education must be Gospel-centered (Romans 1:16) and in response to the fear of the LORD (Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 9:10), focused on the centrality and authority of the Word of God (2 Timothy 3: 14 – 17), designed to impart a purely Biblical worldview (1Timothy 6:20, 1 Corinthians 3: 18–20, Romans 12:2) , and to effectively confront each child with his or her own need for forgiveness and new birth, and then to instruct students in a biblical world view, in apologetics (1 Peter 3:15, 2 Corinthians 10:3–6), in evangelism (Ephesians 4:11–16), in Biblical family roles (Ephesians 5:23–6:4), in the importance and efficacy of prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18), in Bible knowledge (Matthew 4:4), in scripture memorization (Psalm 119:9–12), in biblical service to one’s fellow man (1 Peter 4: 9–11), in involvement in a local church (Hebrews 10: 24–25), and in career training (1 Timothy 5:8, 2 Thessalonians 3:10).
We believe that in light of these affirmations of what we believe concerning the education of children that it is both foolish and irresponsible to entrust the children of Christian families to the instruction of the public, government operated school systems in the United States.
We believe that it is the responsibility of each local church and of the Christian community as a whole to make it practical for all families who desire to do so to be able to withdraw their children and grandchildren from the public, government operated school systems and to be able to educate them by other, more biblical means, including private Christian schools, home schools and non-government controlled home-school co-ops.
We believe that it is the privilege of those believers who have been entrusted with the means to do so to generously support the establishment of such institutions and organizations as may be needed to fulfill the mandates stated in this Manifesto.
Sign The Manifesto
Joaquin Fernandez and Colin Gunn helped uncover the powerful lies that have been foisted on several generations of American school children and the destructive influence that the public schools have had in our culture. While working on IndoctriNation, they began to ask themselves: If a minority of educational "experts" have succeeded by their writings and influence in destroying and brainwashing an entire nation with their godless philosophies, what could God do with a handful of dedicated Christians who were determined to rescue the culture, one child at a time?
The Christian Education Manifesto is a document that seeks to help in the effort to reach an educational tipping point that can bring revival to the Church and true prosperity to the nation.

What we are praying for...
We want to reach the nearly 90% of Christians who have their children in the public schools with the urgent message of our film.
We want to reach every pastor in America with a challenge to consider what God's Word says about education, and how they must preach the whole counsel of God and help rescue God's children from the pagan public schools, by helping families develop an exit strategy from the government indoctrination centers.
We want to reach the nation's growing Hispanic population with this important message and positively impact one of the key constituencies, one that will play a decisive role in the battle for our future. First generation Spanish-speaking parents of English-speaking children in the public schools need to understand why their treasured family values are being corroded and corrupted.
We want to make the film available in Korean, Chinese, Russian, and any other language that will help bring on an education reformation to our land and beyond.
A substantial marketing campaign could be a major game-changer for the IndoctriNation project, the catalyst for an educational tipping point that may tip the scales of public opinion, reaping rich dividends for the cause of faith, family, and freedom, and help save the next generation of Christian warriors for the culture war.
