Christianity is being pummeled in our culture today. Our God and Lord Jesus Christ are regularly demeaned, insulted, lied about, mocked,
and bullied while Christians are generally made out to be the source of all the world’s problems. Why? History and Scripture define
both the disease and the cure.
Hosea 4:6 states: My people perish from lack of knowledge. Ephesians 4:11-12 states: (in short) the purpose of the church is to equip
the saints for the work of the ministry. That is why a worldview education was vital to the Pilgrims, Puritans, and
others who forsook everything to establish the early colonies in America.
The focus in education was two-fold:
The goals of education included both piety and knowledge, …both becoming like God and preparing to do all things well in
daily life in the world; thus creating Christians who are truly Salt and Light in the world.
- To indoctrinate the student thoroughly with the principles and ideas of God in all walks of life – thus, to raise morally virtuous Christians;
- To inoculate the student against the principles and ideas of the world that “come against the knowledge of God” by comparing
and contrasting those ideas against God’s ideas; …so that we would not be taken captive by those bad ideas. (2 Cor. 10:4-5, Colossians 2:8)
Parents, therefore, must develop a Biblical Worldview themselves in order to model the Christian lifestyle before our children because we can’t teach what we don’t know.
Roger will discuss forming and teaching a Christian world view to our children while their hearts are open to a parent's instruction, including:
- What, exactly, is a Christian world view?
- How a Christian world view differs from a secular world view.
- Modeling a relationship with the Lord to our children.
- Discipling our children using a Christian world view as our foundation.
- What it means to apply the Bible to all of our lives.
Plan to attend this meeting to lay the foundation for true success in the heart of your homeschooling. Invite a friend to come (with their
spouse) - they'll be glad you did!
