Before July 23rd of this year, I had only heard of Joaquin Fernandez by a dear friend who constantly told me that Joaquin and I had to meet. That day finally arrived last month at the American Vision Super Conference “Sovereignty and Dominion”. Joaquin is doing a great and timely work. I trust you will be as thrilled as I was at his project.Deo Vindice!
Indoctrination: To instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., esp. to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.
“IndoctriNation” is a 90-minute documentary film that takes the audience on a panoramic exploration of one of the most important and controversial issues in the history of mankind, the issue of education.
Traveling all over America with his family in a big yellow school bus and conducting a series of candid conversational interviews, Colin Gunn, a Scottish filmmaker, actor, and homeschool father of seven children living in Texas, is on a quest to discover the origins of our modern educational system.
What he discovers is a masterful design that sought to replace God’s recipe for training up the next generation with a humanistic, man-centered program that fragmented the family and undermined the influence of the Church and its Great Commission.
The filmmakers leave no pages unturned in their pursuit and identification of the framers of our modern educational state-run monopoly. The film engages the defenders of the status-quo, as well as the leaders of the movement to a return to a biblical model for education. And they challenge—on camera—compromising church leaders and agents of political expediency who, in the name of reform, are causing countless little children to stumble and fall prey to a myriad of social and personal maladies sponsored and sanctioned by the enemies of God and His church.
This film is part documentary, part testimonial; a confessional and a rebuke; and above all, a challenge and an encouragement to millions of Christians who need to know what history, experience, and the Holy Scriptures have to say about what is perhaps the pivotal issue of our time: the discipleship and training of God’s children.
