How does one discern from which tree they are being fed? Do you feast on God's truth from the Tree of Life? Or do you dine from the tree of knowledge?
You MIGHT be surprised! Because the tree of knowledge often sounds pretty good. But that tree is where the world's version of religion comes from...and that tree leads only to destruction.
CIA WORLD FACTBOOK
We use CIA World Factbook extensively in the curriculum, particularly on the nations worksheets and the statistical charting. The curriculum uses currently available data from 2003-2010 and sometimes 2012. Most statistics have remained fairly static since then, but we are concerned we may be seeing a downturn.
Freedom House is a U.S.-based, non-governmental organization begun by Eleanor Roosevelt in 1941. They do research and monitor freedom and human rights issues throughout the world. We use their annual Freedom Report statistics to help us calculate quality of life on our International Misery Index charts. They state that this report is "the standard-setting comparative assessment of global political rights and civil liberties."
"the Sword of the LORD with an electronic edge" eSword is a wonderful source for scripture containing a variety of versions as well as dictionaries, concordances, maps, charts, devotionals and the works of many renowned Bible scholars. No Christian's computer should be without this free resource!
Though not used directly in this curriculum, the websites below offer more opportunities to learn about the spiritual heritage of our nation, and the rights given to us in the U.S. Constitution. Though there are many other wonderful organizations, we have highlighted these few to get you started. We encourage you to become informed. Our liberties depend on it.

Heritage Foundation allowed us to print their Conservative Declaration in our curriculum (pages 138, 139) The statement on their declaration is "Stand with fellow patriots for the princ lipless of freedom, religious liberty, and free enterprise." Heritate is actively involved in keeping America strong and free.
