The final paper in this series explains: (1.) Who is, and What is, The Secular Religion? .  It also explains:  (2.)  Why "The Secular Religion" is in every classroom; and,  (3.)  Why it will always exist in every classroom.  (4.)  And, why it is important for parents and teachers to handle it with The HISways™ PLAVNIC License in the classroom rather than The Supreme Courtroom.

Farther down the page is a graphic which will show the various transformations of thought, learning and believing and help clarify the philosophy of education of The HISways™ PLAVNIC Christian Public School.
[Footnote conventions: 1D= 1st 'Definition' ; 1.= Item 1. on graphic. .`
(1.) Who is, and What is The Secular Religion?
The 'Who' of The Secular Religion is the secularist 1D. , the nihilist 2D. and the apostate 6D. whose only ideas are censorship and denial.  The 'What' of The Secular Religion is a persecutory 7D. spirit seeking censure and control of our children's minds through socialized education.

(2.)  Why "The Secular Religion" is in every classroom.
Humans are all conceived 1. into a blank neutrality, mentally and spiritually but immediately begin to "follow involuntarily the evidence proposed to their minds," (Jefferson Section I.1.).  To remain neutral is impossible.  Even ignorance is not neutral.  As Dr. A.A. Hodge said concerning secularism in public schools vs churches: 'It is no answer to say that the deficiency of the national system of education in this regard will be adequately supplied by the activities of the Christian churches.  No court would admit in excuse for the diffusion of poison the pleas that the poisoner knew of another agent actively employed in diffusing an antidote.  Moreover, the churches, divided and without national recognition, would be able very inadequately to counteract the deadly evil done by the public schools of the State with all the resources and prestige of the government.  But more than all, atheism taught in the school cannot be counteracted by theism taught in the Church. 2. & 3.   Theism and atheism cannot coalesce to make anything.  All truth in all spheres is organically one and vitally inseparable.  It is impossible for different agencies independently to discuss and inculcate the religious and the purely naturalistic sides of truth respectively.  They cannot be separated.  In some degree they must recognize each other, and be taught together, as they are experienced in their natural relations. [Our underline added there. - ed.]  Our comment following the quote: ( All disbelief cannot be eliminated from classrooms because kids by birth are ignorant and are born into a vacuum of facts and ignorant of Truth.  Adults and kids who are seeking Absolute Truth must ... reject their denial, and face the truth, and accept personal responsibility for their actions and their state of being.)  On a simpler scale this is the role of the teacher regarding every fact and every truth which is the foundation of an excellent education; and, that is: (3.) Why it will always exist in every classroom.  Pure neutrality is impossible.

(4.)  And, why it is important for parents and teachers to handle secularism with The HISways PLAVNIC License in the classroom rather than The Supreme Courtroom.
This is the explicit role of the teacher and the parent i.e. to teach the children truths that they can apply to develop thinking and reasoning skills; which are the minimum essentials for making sound decisions personally, corporately and socially.  The failure to teach truth leaves the student in jeopardy of applying some half truth with which to rationalize around some loop hole at his peril.  The first is superior to the second.  Learning to reason with the truth is stronger and safer than rationalizing.'

The following graphic provides a picture of the maturing process of both the mind and the spirit and is an overview of the educational philosophy for The Hisways USA, Inc. PLAVNIC Christian Public Schools.'
The top panel in the graphic below and The Apostles Creed (history page) are the fundamental Spiritual beliefs of Hisways USA, Inc..  All students, parents, teachers and others who are associated with The Hisways PLAVNIC Christian PS will come in contact with this information on a frequent basis and must pre approve it by affidavit; although, no one will be required to believe it.  Items like these might be required as answers to test question(s) about the USA's default religion; but, simply "knowing" this is not sufficient as proselytizing, theological, "salvation" beliefs.  One must also be "converted" by a personal, repentance and faith in Christ alone.  If salvation 3. by conversion should occur on campus the affected person will be expected to complete their theological and denominational exercises at a church of their own choice.  Hisways™ USA, Inc. is not ecumenical, and is not a church; has no plans to build a church and is not interested in church membership.  HISways is only an educational alternative; and, at most a discipleship adventure.
Discipleship: whether it's discipleship of the mind before the cross or discipleship of the heart after the cross, it's all about Discipleship..`
Hisways believes that at conception 1. two cells initiate the development of a living person that has a soul and a spirit.  Sometime during the stages of a person's life, frequently by age 13 to 18, a point is reached where enough information has been learned about eternity and God that a conscious decision can be made.  This is called The Age of Accountability. 2.   If an affirmative decision i.e. salvation by conversion is not made before the end of one's life time 6.  the person will have to spend eternity in the Abyss (Hell 4.).  The adoption or membership in some other religion is not a "saving" decision.
 In the graphic below is a green triangle that represents a person's accumulated knowledge or experience.  We never know all truth.' 5.  Some truth we know; but, some of it we deny, or we refuse to face it, or we rebel against it.  In the green triangle of day to day activities men act like hypocrites; change convictions, change ideas, manipulate others and sometimes decide to be apostate' 6D.  If The Hisways PLAVNIC Christian PS, with open enrollment, has a school student, parent or staff member suddenly become offended and opposed to their signed affidavit for free religious expression under the Hisways Private License, then they shall execute their, previously agreed to, exit strategy out of the Christian PS in order to facilitate their religious comfort.  If the offended school member brings suit based on their new religious beliefs it will be viewed as intolerance, harassment and overt hostility.

The Trinity: God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit. 
Jesus: "The Christ, the Son of the living God."  Mt. 16:16 
The Bible:  inerrant; infallible; absolutely true; Holy Spirit inspired Word of God.

     4.    6.                  5.
             6.  End of Time (figuratively, tomorrow) is the limit of one's knowledge & strength.  Is it an unknown future?   It is your choice.  Jesus said (Mk 16:15-16)  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 
          5.  All truth available to man's education.  Representative of truths in all fields: Archeology, History, Law & Science etc.. 
      4.  The Abyss (Hell): The gap that eternally separates man and man's knowledge and spirit from knowing the living God.   (Lk 16:26)  "between us and you is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot, neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence."
      3.  Salvation (from The Abyss, symbolized by the Cross): Jesus saith unto him "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."  John 14:6.  And,  "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" Ro. 10:9.
      2.  Age of Accountability: That mental age where a person starts finding the answers to life's questions.
         To wit: Who am I?  Where did I come from?  Why am I here?  Where am I going after I die?  Does God exist?  Does God love me?  etc.
