I have decided to review and post my thoughts about Seeds of Deception as I go rather than waiting until the end. I have read the first 11 chapters to date. So far, I am impressed with Georgia Preskar's writing style in as much as it is engaging. Although, I don't think she'll be winning awards for a great literary work. She doesn't overwhelm the reader, but rather invites them in to her world, all the while imparting, with great precision, her thoughts and ideas.
I will say though that this book isn't for the faint of heart. It deals with some very disturbing issues. Should you stay away for that reason though? I would say absolutely not! It is because these topics are so distrubring AND they are targeting the youth of America in furthering their agenda's that we should be interested to learn what is going on. As parents we shouldn't put our heads in the sand and hope little Johnny turns out ok. If we aren't willing to instill values and morality into our children there are many others who will.
Let me start by listing a few of the topics covered to date:
- The homosexual agenda in our schools
- The damage the TV has caused to the family unit
- Mind Control
- Hitler's Evil
What's difficult in reading through some of the topics is how far they've infiltrated our schools and given I have a one year old son, I can't imagine what his school experience will be like. I can tell you this, he won't be learning morality from school. He will learn it by what his mother and I teach him and more importantly from watching what his parents do rather than what they say.
I was particularly affected by Georgiana's description of how she felt as her children left home for college. It seemed to accelerate my life by 17 years and got me thinking what that must feel like. Here I am in the throws of our son truly needing us and knowing how great it feels that when he's upset or gets hurt that the loving arms of a parent is all he desires. I know all this will change, but I sure cherish it while it's here. There's a lot of life to be lived before my son goes off to college, but it is my prayer, that because of books like Seeds of Deception that I will not be in the dark as to what the current issues are in our society. That, coupled with sound Biblical teaching will allow me to frame the situations my son will face in the proper context. He will not go through life thinking truth is different for everyone. There is absolute truth, found in the person and work of Jesus Christ. The Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God and all paths DO NOT lead to heaven. If I don't teach him these things, chances are he won't learn them.
