Bayith Home   |   Political Cultural and Social Issues

The Hebrew word 'Bayith' can be translated in several ways but usually means 'house' or 'foundation'. Our ministry aims to be a welcoming house that helps to provide believers with foundational material to bless and encourage you.

"We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families.
We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them"

"[T]he most vulnerable children in our society ... are in our care; we, the state, are their parents"

"The first thing that a totalitarian regime tries to do is to get at the children,
to distance them from the subversive, varied influences of their families,
and indoctrinate them in their rulers' view of the world"

"Above all things, the child needs protecting from the state"

Withdraw Thy Foot...

God gave children to parents, not to the State, to love, nurture, teach, discipline, and train up into adulthood.  It does not take a 'village' or the 'Collective' or State-run 'Care' homes to raise a child; it takes a loving and biological/adoptive/foster family.  Please see the article Communism and the Family for the ideology underlying the 'Collective'.

The issues are:

(a) the arrogant over-riding by State Social 'Services' of the inherent and prior right and responsibility of family members (grandparents, aunts and uncles, older siblings, cousins) to take into their home the child or children of another family member who is genuinely incapable of raising them, before either non blood-related heterosexual couples are considered as foster or adoptive parents or the children are placed in State 'care'; and  (b) the politically-correct insistence that children be given to homosexuals (and now Muslims) despite there being very many heterosexual or Christian/secular couples willing and able to adopt them.

Of the various spurious 'reasons' given by the UK's Child 'Protection' system for depriving children of their parents and parents of their children, the following three are fast becoming the most common:

(a) "'emotional abuse': This has been by far the biggest contributor to the explosion in the numbers of children taken into care since the 'Baby P' scandal in 2008, rising by 92%. And most have not been for actual emotional abuse but simply for the possible 'risk' of such abuse happening in the future;
(b) a second charge against parents which comes up too often is their failure to 'co-operate with professionals', such as the social workers who are tearing their family apart; and
(c) a third reason used to justify 90% of child removals is the role of those 'independent' psychologists hired by social workers to report that the parents suffer from such vague conditions as 'borderline personality disorder', or 'narcissism', leading them to 'put their own interests above those of the children'" [source].

Naive young social workers indoctrinated into sociological (i.e. Cultural Marxist) claptrap, who lack  (a) an historical knowledge or understanding of, or love for, the family they blithely tear apart and  (b) the wisdom that comes only from the experience of age and the fear of the LORD, and who have never even had any children of their own let-alone raised them to responsible and well-adjusted adulthood, are certainly not in any position to counsel, instruct/lecture or make judgements about, any parent or any family.

The terrible reason underlying all such pernicious interference by the Social 'Services' and their legal cohorts in the secret 'Family' Courts (with the collusion of our police force, state school teachers, and medical doctors) into the sanctity and privacy of parents and their families is the deliberate agenda by Western Governments to replace God-ordained parental authority with God-less totalitarian State authority over children, as seen in the section: 'It Takes a Village'.

State education is also part of that agenda.  Please see here, here, here, and here, for more on State education.

Please pray for these children and their parents who are the victims of the UK's (also the USA's and some European countries) evil social engineering programmes carried out by social workers, family court personnel, police, state school teachers, and medical doctors.  Please also pray for the eyes of all these 'professional' useful idiots to be opened that they may understand that their attempts to steal a child from its parents is an abomination in God's sight, and that, far from protecting children, they are doing all these little ones great and lasting harm.


The Sanctity and Privacy of the Family

"Marx and Engels considered that the nuclear family was one of the main obstacles to Marxism and they therefore, in their revolutionary zeal, counted it as one of the principle enemies to be destroyed or undermined. Since the 1930s the Frankfurt School's Cultural Marxism, and its 'march through the institutions', has been seeking to achieve this end by the Fabian tactic, not of outright revolution, but of wearing us down, bit by bit, in the hope that we will give up and that the family will then fall. This is the real drive, apart from materialism, behind getting women to abandon the home and to deposing the man from his responsible role as head and breadwinner. ... The attempt in Scotland to appoint 'named persons' for every child is one of the latest attempts to achieve this goal by appointing what is really a State Intruder into the family. They want to corrupt our children at school with 'sex education' and 'citizenship' lessons - really promiscuity and class war - and then provide the conditioned child with an anti-family 'champion' in the home! ... All these moves are part and parcel of a horrendous Marxian package. What did the Jesuits say about giving them the child and they would give us the man?...  We need to be ever vigilant about all of these related threats. Above all things the child needs protecting from the State!" [Letter to British Church Newspaper, 20 September 2013, p.9].



"And he that stealeth [a child], and selleth him..."
(Exodus 21:16)

"The words of a talebearer are as wounds,
and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly"
(Proverbs 18:8)

"Every fool will be meddling ... Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house:
lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee"

(Proverbs 20:3b; 25:17)

"Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him"
(Proverbs 26:12)

"Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees,
and that write grievousness which they have prescribed"

(Isaiah 10:1-3)

"Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds!
when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. ...
So they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage"
(Micah 2:1-2)

"It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea,
than that he should offend one of these little ones"
(Luke 17:1-2)

"Let none of you suffer ... as a busybody in other men's matters"
(1 Peter 4:15)

"Never, anywhere in the Holy Bible will you find God giving civil government any authority to rear or direct the rearing of children
 ... God told parents, not the government, to 'train up' their children."
(Laura Rogers, Societal Structures vs. Restructuring, as quoted in Berit Kjos, Brave New Schools, p185)
