Why Should A Christian Homeschool?


A Christian is unlike anyone else in the world. A Christian has committed himself to follow Christ, to think like Christ, to have Christ living in him.

Originally the United States public schools were pro-Christian.   The first public schools were begun in Massachusetts to teach children to read, so they could read the Bible.

Gradually control of the schools shifted from local school boards -- local folks -- to the courts, which are controlled by a relatively few lawyers.  When this happened, the schools shifted from being Christian to being non-Christian.  Evolution, the teaching that creation does not have a creator, was introduced into the schools.  Then, based upon the premise that the God of the Bible is not the Creator, He was expelled from school altogether.  He was not allowed in the textbooks, and prayers to Him were forbidden.

Today this process is continuing to the next step.  Now the big government schools are not just non-Christian.  They are anti-Christian.  They purposely teach students values -- such as homosexuality -- which are diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Bible.

The government schools are actually filled with religious teaching.  If I believe in the God of the Bible, that is my religious belief.  If you do not believe in the God of the Bible, that is your religious belief.  They are both religious beliefs, one just as much as the other.  The public schools are filled with the religious teaching that the God of the Bible is not God.
 
If He is not God, that is right.  If He is God, that is wrong.

Very wrong.

If the God of the Bible is not Creator, if He does not enforce a living law which blesses good and punishes evil, then when the public schools stopped teaching Christian morality, there should have been no change in the schools.  If God wasn’t God, it wouldn’t have changed anything when He was kicked out.

What actually happened?

A half century ago teachers said their biggest problems were chewing gum, running in the halls, and not raising the hand to ask to go to the bathroom.  Today they list the biggest problems as drugs, violence, pregnancy and suicide.
 
What has happened to the public schools since they eliminated God proves that the God of the Bible is God.  They expelled Him. He flunked them.

So what is a Christian parent to do?

A Christian is unlike anyone else in the world.  A Christian has committed himself to follow Christ, to think like Christ, to have Christ living in him.

Then what would Christ do?

Would Christ allow His children to be taught that His Father is not Creator?  Would Christ allow His children to be in a school where they cannot read about His Father in the Bible?  Would Christ allow His children in a school which is forbidden to pray to His Father?  Would Christ allow His children to be taught that sodomy is good?

No.

Neither will we allow that.

We are Christians.  We home school.  There is no place in our schools where God and Christ are not allowed.  To the contrary, our school days, our family, our whole life is based on them. 

If the God of the Bible is Creator, if He does enforce a living law which blesses good and punishes evil, then Christian home schools should be blessed bountifully.

They are.  We have known hundreds of Christian home school families, everything from Pentecostal to Catholic, Mormon to Messianic.  All of these have been greatly blessed in their children and their families because they chose to home school.

The God of the Bible is Creator, and our Christian home schools are blessed bountifully.  We encourage all Christian parents to join in Christian home schooling and join in these blessings.
