36 And He was also telling them a parable: “No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and puts it on an old garment; otherwise he will both tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. 37 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled out, and the skins will be ruined. 38 “But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. 39 “And no one, after drinking old wine wishes for new; for he says, `The old is good enough.”‘
Luke 5:36-39

Jesus was actually explaining that the Kingdom of God would be expanding. Gentiles would be grafted in to the Jewish root and some accommodations would need to be made to hold the new wine.
CPS, however, is not God. Even so, the rules of “spiritual physics” still apply. To adapt the truth of this parable, one must realize that God’s ways are good, and when CPS tries to force God’s wine to fit in with their godless worldview of the family, it is destructive.

24 Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God?
Mark 12:24

One would be hard-pressed to state how Child Protective Services opposes the teachings of Christ more succinctly than that!

CPS does not regard the family as God’s creative plan for child-rearing. They are all about evolution and believe that the family unit was an adaptation to preserve and distribute meager resources in a subsistence level society. In today’s culture, they believe that outsourcing is more efficient and gives children the opportunity to develop more highly advanced social skills at an earlier age. In other words, they think daycare is good for kids and parents alike. It is supposedly good for kids because they can be reared by “properly trained” child care providers with ample supervision. It is supposedly good for parents who need an emotional break from their kids to keep from becoming stressed out. Hogwash!

Daycare is actually a very unstable environment with many people constantly coming and going. Enduring, permanent attachments are not formed, and children are exposed to serial relationships at an early age. It is a petri dish for contagions. There is little “down time” for a child to reflect on experiences without having them interpreted for him. There is less opportunity to explore one’s creativity when confined in a group.

The parents’ priorities and schedules are rearranged by the demands of other people and entities who have different and often godless value systems. Parents do not get to personally oversee the shaping of their child’s worldview as is taught in scripture. Only rarely do parents have the fresh moments of the day to share with their children. Far more often, the “quality time” had to be fit in when the parent, child, or both are exhausted.
