Christian Education

The Bible exhorts all of us to educate our Children in his ways -

"These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up" (Deut. 6:6-7, NIV). The period of the Judges in Israelite history shows us the consequences which result when parents shirk their duty of impressing the law of God on their children - "After that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals" (Jdg. 2:10-11, NIV). For too long, Christian parents have entrusted their children to a godless government school system, established on the belief that God's existence is immaterial to math, science, and the arts. God is Lord of every area of life, and education about every area of life should reflect his Lordship. The following articles are provided to guide Christians to make Biblical choices about education
