I Went To Public School and I Turned Out Okay. 

Can't My Children Do The Same?


     The short answer is yes.  Just like you did,
your kids can turn out okay.  Maybe even better
than okay.  But our /files/Images/Photos/skd256173sdc.jpgarrival at a place called "okay" does not necessarily mean that all our choices along the way were the right ones, or that our educational experience was the best one. 


     The real questions are these: Are you the same person today that you would have been had you attended Christian school?  And what about the journey that brought you here?  Might it have been a little more joyful, a little less troublesome?  Is it possible that God could have used you for His glory even more than He already has?



     These are questions only you can answer, and if you haven't already, why not do it right now?  Give this issue an honest, thoughtful look, and then ask God what His will is regarding your children's education.


"I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount.  Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt ...  I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth."

Big Ideas to Consider:

1. There are basically two kingdoms: a kingdom of light and a kingdom of darkness. It seems strange to have those who walk in darkness educate children of light. It doesn't fit.

2. If Jesus Christ is Lord, then He is Lord of all. We cannot divide things into secular and sacred.

3. All truth is God's truth, and God's Word sheds light on our path. Only in His light can we see light. Education is not focused on possibilities but on certainties found in God's Word.

4. Deuteronomy 6 tells parents that, in all they do, they should provide a godly education 24/7.

5. Three key institutions that shape a child are the home, the church and the school. Children are served best when all three institutions point them in the same direction.

6. Only an education that has the liberty to address the whole child -- social, intellectual, emotional, physical AND spiritual -- reaches the possibility of excellence.

7. The best preparation for effective service is to be well grounded in one's mind before direct engagement of the culture.
