To all the Christian parents who still have your kids drinking from the filthy waters of public education, you also need to repent. Stop sending your children to Baal. Stop sending your children to Caesar. Go and get your kids and give them the education they deserve. Christian children have a right to a Christian education, and one day you’ll have to give an account to Jesus Christ himself. You already know this and therefore have no excuse. To whom much is given, much is required.
About 12 years ago, my wife and I decided to pull our kids from the government school system and commit to giving them a home education. When we did that, some of our friends and family members thought we were crazy: “What do you mean you’re homeschooling?”
We explained to them that God’s Word commands us to raise our children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” We explained that every successful student becomes like his teacher, just as Jesus said, “Every disciple who is fully trained will be just like his Master.”
We told them them that because we didn’t want a godless, anti-Christian, government-run school system to disciple our children, we were willing to sacrifice up to half our total income to protect the hearts and minds of our little ones. Some nodded of course with eyebrows lifted, eyes glazed over, and the little corners of their mouths pointed downward. But that was okay. We knew they didn’t understand. We knew we would have to bear the shame of stepping out in faith and obedience to God’s Word. We knew we would be characterized as religious fanatics and regarded as overzealous and extreme.
But you know what? Today more than ever we are proud of the decision we made. Our walk with the Lord has been greatly strengthened and our faith has been confirmed time and again throughout the past 12 years. Especially, as we look around at the current state and condition of our nation, we know that we did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. The degeneracy of public education is manifest.
In the picture below you can see just how far we’ve fallen. What “show and tell” used to be and what it is today is a clear testimony to the absolute corruption of our society.
And no, this is not one of those “I told you so” kind of rants.
