Of Janissaries and Government Schools

In a cruelty that was both useful and cynical, Islamic Sultans would forcefully implement a blood tax on the peoples of Byzantium. This “blood tax” found the Islamic Infidel seizing from the people of Byzantium their finest sons in order to take them back to Islamadom in order to turn these sons into the most elite special forces military units. These “Janissaries” were not allowed to marry and were considered personally owned by the Sultan. They were provided the very best of foods and drink. Eventually, they would be used as the shock troops against their former land from which they were kidnapped — Byzantium.

Today much the same is done by the Marxist conditioning as accomplished in our K-12 government schools and then our Universities all augmented and supported by our Churches. Only instead of having to kidnap the children Christian parents freely turn their children over to the enemy to be brainwashed. Like the Janissaries of old these children eventually turn on their parents and their former Christian lands in order to conquer them for the cause of Cultural Marxism.

I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling. I am postmillennial in my eschatology. Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity Reformed in my Soteriology Presuppositional in my apologetics Familialist in my family theology Agrarian in my regional community social order belief Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place Some of my favorite authors, Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

  1. Well said, so I will look at why it is so.
    Chivalry, a knockoff of Christianity, results in sermons that are not offensive to women, and there are many women teachers in the congregations. It takes time and effort to explain thoughts like yours in a way that the easily offended won’t be offended, so silence is the result, partly, because it is easier.

    Us sheep figure it out anyhow, no thanks to pastors who pat themselves on the back for maintaining objectivity and teaching that all schools are good options. It’s the one time pastors give authority to parents over their kids, when they say send them to whichever place you see fit.

    1. Kurt,

      Biblical Chivalry is a direct descendant of Christianty. What you are seeing is not chivalry but cowardice.

      We need some more of Shakespeare “Taming of the Shrew,” for the kind of women you are speaking of.
