But what about you?
If America's Founding Fathers could travel through time, they would say you are a victim of Educational Malpractice.
George Washington was a lifelong learner who homeschooled himself while he ran a home business and led the Continental Army in a War for Independence. In his library, he studied for an hour every morning, and an hour before bed.

What does this program cost?
The average cost of a public school education in 2013 is nearly $13,000 per year per student. By skipping "the 3 R's" (which you can quickly learn through the Ron Paul Curriculum or the Kahn Academy), twelve years of a colonial American worldview education, covering the core subjects banned by the government, can be covered in just 12 months by reading through the entire Bible and four other works which are among the most important works in the history of western civilization, listening to audio lessons on the commute to work and back home in the evening, 20 minutes each way. Then each week attend a live Q&A webinar for laser coaching and clarification.
We think this program is worth $97/month.
We are a non-profit organization. We request a monthly commitment of at least one dollar per month. But you can get started for free. Just sign up at the top of this page. Here's what we will send you. When you feel it's "worth it," you can make a tax-deductible donation.

The Three Things
Incredibly, those words were written by one of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices who then went ahead and approved the removal of religion from public schools. The words are found in the 1962 case of Engel v. Vitale, in the concurring opinion of Justice William O. Douglas. The Northwest Ordinance, along with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, is part of what legal scholars call "the Organic Law" of America. The Northwest Ordinance was the blueprint for the constitutions of states admitted to the union. Many states quoted this passage verbatim, and their state constitutions acknowledge the three things that America's Founding Fathers believed were essential to a good education:
Intelligent and well-informed people know that the federal government prohibits your local public school from teaching the Bible in the way Jesus and the authors of the Bible would teach it. For the same reason, public school teachers are prohibited from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence is really true. Both documents can only be taught as archaic, irrelevant, dusty artifacts of history which people in the distant past believed were true.
Because religion and Christian morality have been banned from public schools by the government, knowledge has also been banned.
Students cannot gain "knowledge" in a chaotic, noisy, disruptive classroom. But students who do not know Christian religion and morality think they are their own god. They don't have to obey school authorities, and they don't have to respect the learning environment of fellow students. So when the U.S. Supreme Court removed religion from public schools, it removed morality (because morality is religion externalized), and thereby removed knowledge. In a class full of would-be gods, the presence of one student who knows more than the others is an offence. It hurts the fragile "self-esteem" of a wanna-be god, and so all students must be equally stupid.
Knowledge depends on religion and morality.
This is why the HomeschoolingforAdults program will give you a complete worldview makeover by building on a Christian foundation: "religion, morality, and knowledge."
If America's Founding Fathers could travel through time and study these three things, they would be horrified:
America's Founders would say
They would say there are five books you need to read if you wish to become
Here are the five textbooks that you will read in the 365-day HomeschoolingforAdults program:
George Washington spent an hour each morning and an hour each evening in "private devotions," as his daughter Nelly Parke Custis testified. These were not fluffy, syrupy, or escapist "devotionals." George Washington was prayerfully discerning the blueprints for the creation of a new nation. His devotionals were not in a chapel, but in a library.
Jared Sparks was President of Harvard University. He also assembled the definitive collection of George Washington's papers. In Volume XII of these writings, Sparks delved into the religious character of George Washington, and included numerous letters written by the friends, associates, and family of Washington which testified of his religious character. Nelly Custis' letter, which Sparks requested, gave these details:
According to the Library of Congress Website, George Washington was motivated by the Vine & Fig Tree vision revealed in the Bible:
Public schools in America were the product of the Protestant Reformation.

A Victim of
The U.S. Federal Government has banned the core curriculum prescribed by America's Founding Fathers for America's public schools. Education was primarily religious, not secular. America was a Christian nation, not a "secular" nation. If America's Founders could travel through time and have a conversation with you, they would say you are

An Extraordinary American,
Being a Christian is extraordinary. Christian Coaching
Being a Christian means two things:
No human being can do this. Only God can take a descendant of Adam and Eve and make that rebel a Christian. Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden in the very presence of God, and they flipped Him the bird. As a result, all their descendants were born rebels.
This is extraordinary.
Many people who call themselves Christians were never predestined to love Jesus with all their heart. They're just faking it. Being chosen by God for a second birth is extraordinary.
This means being ordinary is a sin.
You need to become extraordinary.
The command to love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength means being moderate, ordinary, or lukewarm is a sin.
Ordinary "Christians" love other things with all their heart.
A True Christian is an "extremist."
If the Apostles and other great saints were to follow you around for a week, what would they think of the decisions you make, the candidates you vote for, and the people and actions you tolerate?
How can Jesus justifiably call someone an "evildoer" if he prophesies, casts out demons, and maybe even heals a few people? And he does all this in the name of the Lord??
Have YOU ever cast out a demon or healed anyone? What have YOU done that makes you think you're a Christian?
Do your friends, neighbors, and co-workers think of you as an "extremist," or just an average, normal ordinary person?
Extraordinary American | Extraordinary Christian | Extraordinary Human Being
Jesus said "average," "moderate," and "normal" makes Him sick:
If you consider yourself a "moderate" rather than an "extremist," then you would place yourself at point "M" on the chart below:
Middle of the Road
|A B C D E F G H I J K L||M||N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z|
|Capitalism, Free Enterprise, Prosperity||Apathy||Tyranny, socialism, poverty and mass death|
While there's something superficially impressive about our computers, televisions, microwave ovens, and other technology, our pursuit of these trinkets reeks of a fundamental self-centeredness, not necessarily a God-centeredness.
Do you recall Jesus saying this:
When was the last time you visited someone in prison?
Jesus said many things like this that offended even those who were His closest disciples:
And of course, the religious leaders of His day wanted Jesus -- "the Great Teacher and Healer" -- put to death!
Are you sure that you would be a follower of Jesus if He were here today? Are you sure you wouldn't side with the authorities and experts who denounced Jesus and His followers? Are you willing to be a part of a small minority, rather than the vast majority?
In 1892 the United States Supreme Court declared that America was a Christian nation.
If George Washington and other signers of the Constitution were to follow you around for a week, what would they think of the decisions you make, the candidates you vote for, and the people and actions you tolerate?
What have you pledged of your substance to preserve the things that made America great: "Liberty Under God."
What material things have you sacrificed to preserve the spiritual foundations of America?
What "Valley Forge" have you endured, or are you prepared to endure?
Are you a good Christian?
Are you "fit for the Kingdom?
Not everyone is called to endure what the Apostle Paul endured, but what are you willing to endure?
Would you be willing to lose your microwave oven, or your television, if that were necessary to follow Christ?
Would you LIKE to be the kind of American that George Washington would be proud of?
Would you LIKE to be the kind of Christian that would please God? Hebrews 13:16, 21
Surprisingly, it really doesn't take much to follow Christ. Jesus says His burden is light, and His yoke is easy (Matthew 11:30). John says His commandments are not grievous (1 John 5:3).
We have to work against the voice of our conscience in order to keep up with the Joneses instead of following Christ. (Acts 26:14)
Many Americans say they are "independent" and don't believe in "yokes." But the question is not WHETHER we will be under a yoke, but WHOSE yoke we will be under. Wouldn't you rather be under a yoke that's easy? Wouldn't you rather be the slave of a Master who desires only your best? Why accept being an illiterate and dependent slave of a "fearful master?"
What it takes is allegiance. Total commitment. You must be willing to renounce the old country and declare your allegiance to a new Kingdom.
Its astonishing how many people today are unwilling to make this commitment.
Its unbelievable how many people prefer the "security" of dictatorship and poverty over the "animating contest" of liberty and prosperity.
I'm willing to bet you $5,000 that the Apostles and America's Founding Fathers would not be impressed with you.
In fact, I think I can prove from the pages of the Bible that you're a wimp and a disgrace to the ideals they bravely fought to protect. They wouldn't consider you a good Christian at all.
I'll bet you.
Just thinking about these great Christians makes you realize I'm right, doesn't it?
You don't realize how right you are. You're a disgrace as a Christian. And I can prove it from page after page of Scriptures that haven't been heard in government schools for over 100 years.
Let me win this bet.
Answer these questions in privacy. Pray about it. I will prove that you're you're a rotten Christian. I will prove that you've been dumbed-down by government-regulated schools, and know less about what it means to be a great Christian than the average third-grader knew 100 years ago.
Then I'll show you how to be a great Christian. Practical steps you can take every day, just a few minutes a day, to make you a truly great Christian. One that would have been applauded by great Christians of the past, and that will be admired by your children and great-grandchildren. You'll gladly pay me minimum wage for this program.
Is $5,000 too much to pay for a program like this?
Let's look at the costs:
Suppose you make $20.00 an hour. Chances are you make more than this, or you wouldn't have read this far. You're highly educated. You're a professional. If you're a lawyer you bill your time at more than $100/hr.
At $20.00/hr, one hour a day comes to more than $7000/yr.
This is truly the most expensive program you can enroll in.
But you'll think it's worth it.
If you're like most superficial Christians these days, you wouldn't value this program if it were free. But if you pay big bucks for it, you'll value it more. You'll have an incentive to take the time, and develop the discipline to use this program like it's meant to be used.
And if you're smart (unlike most Christians), you'll realize that even if it were free, the newsletter is still costing you -- in time.
I'm confident you're going to get your friends to enroll too.
You'll start working on its recommendations with them.
During lunch at work, over coffee and doughnuts after church, maybe on a weekend retreat.
$13./hr from you and your friends will help me pay my rent, and my children will live in a better America.

You are a victim of
You have been systematically deprived of the three things that every single person who signed the Constitution would say are a necessary part of a basic American education. These three things are specifically mentioned in America's Organic Law. But you were never taught that America's Organic Law consists of the most fundamental charters of America's government. Now that you know what the "Organic Law" is, you still don't know what fundamental documents it contains. Article III of one of them says this:
The Organic Law of America not only recognizes our dependence on and duty towards God, but specifies where we should learn about our Creator (religion), the rights with which He has endowed us, and our duties toward Him and our fellow man (morality).
Today, our schools and government are "secular" (atheistic) and confiscating property from others without their consent -- armed robbery -- is the heart and soul of our vast "entitlement" social programs. You were cheated out of an education which began with "Thou shalt not steal" and "Thou shalt not kill."
The Christian Religion and Christian morality were to be taught in public schools.
Even though Justice Douglas concurred in Engel v. Vitale, the case which removed Christianity from public schools in the early 1960's, he was honest enough to admit that
Justice Douglas then quoted the Article above. Then he proceeded to ignore the law he swore to uphold, and removed "religion and morality" from public schools.
Soon after that, knowledge was removed from public schools, because when some kids have knowledge, that hurts the "self-esteem" of those who don't. Away with grades, away with knowledge! America's youth no longer score #1 on international tests.
The average teenager in 1776 knew more about what it means to be a great American, a great Christian, and a great Human Being than you do. Transport the average teenager from 1776 to our time and that teenager could figure out how to use your Blackberry, your remote control, and drive your SUV in a matter of days, but it would take you months, maybe years, to learn as much about geography, morality, history, religion, political science, virtue, and develop the habits of character which the average American possessed in 1776.
Reading the Bible is the first step in our year-long program to impose a colonial American education on you. If you already know how to read and write, the Internet now makes it possible for you to experience the same childhood education that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock experienced. Their education made it inevitable that they would abolish the government -- a government which they described as a "tyranny."
These truths are life-changing.
An "Irresistible" Paradigm Shift
You hear that phrase (paradigm shift) thrown around a lot these days. Everybody wants their idea to be the next "paradigm shift." Paradigm-shifters are now mainstream. Vine & Fig Tree represents a true break with the status quo, a change as momentous as that described by Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, upon hearing of Locke's rejection of the doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings:
Vine & Fig Tree really is a new "paradigm," a "Copernican revolution," a radical way of looking at politics and society. It is one step beyond the radical vision that motivated America's Founding Fathers. It is a vision so old that it appears to be utterly unprecedented.
The vision of Vine & Fig Tree gives energy and hope to those who work for it. It inspires dedicated action.
Vine & Fig Tree's mission is to contribute to the Glory of God and the greater happiness of mankind. The vision of Vine & Fig Tree will animate future leaders and captivate the hearts and minds of many.
Dr. Rush speaks of "a turning point," which is to speak of a turning from something to something else. From what should we turn? To what should we aspire?
I believe we must move
Many people balked at the "turning point" which the Declaration of Independence represented. Many will balk at Vine & Fig Tree -- it is the overthrowing of ideas which many have believed are as essential to social order or the Christian faith "as the sun is to the order of our solar system."
The marketing challenge is to make this vision a "turning point" in the history of mankind. We want to make this vision "irresistible."
But what one person finds "irresistible," another finds repugnant. A member of ISIS does not find anything "irresistible" in the message of Jesus Christ: "Love your enemies." Can any marketing guru re-work the "copy" to make the message "irresistible" to a violent barbarian without changing the meaning of the message?
Our goal is to remove language which is unnecessarily offensive and to state the message clearly in a way that appeals to the "Image of God" in every human being, and to "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" which are written on the stoniest of hearts.
