Will Attending Christian School Make My Children Christians?

     While there are no guarantees on this score - God has not promised that everyone who hears the Gospel will embrace it - it is true

"For God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."

(2 Peter 3:9)

that faith in Christ "comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17).  Because Christian schools share God's Word with their students daily, your children will have more opportunities to accept Christ than they would in any other educational setting.

     Of course, whether your children come to faith in Christ during their school days or not, one thing is clear.  Their time in Christian school will give them a better understanding of the Bible, and should they eventually accept Christ, they will be better able to defend and share their faith with others.

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.
