Bible Will 'Defend Itself' Against Pagan Books, Says NC Pastor

Less than a month after a North Carolina Pagan woman caused a stir because her son's middle school allowed him to take a Bible from the school's office, some area pastors are speaking out, saying that if it was the other way around, and their children could get books about Paganism from the school, they wouldn't mind.

Rusty Smart, an associate pastor at Calvary Worship Center in Marshall, N.C., told the Citizen-Times that if his son brought home a Pagan spell book he would use it as a “teaching moment” to share his Christian beliefs with his child without bothering the school.

“All these other religions claim to coexist, but they don’t want to coexist with Christians,” said Smart. “They want to drive us out.” ...

Brother Jim was not trying to give you a hard time about your preference in versions, sorry it came across that way. We both agree that the responsibility for training the child in way they should go lies with the parents of that child and they need to be actively involved in their learning and maturing process.

unworthy servant, it is fine that you use my preferred version of the Bible, NASB, though I have never given (a hard time, at least I hope not!) For even using the KJV. I hope I will give someone a hard time for using the The New World Translation of the Jehovah's Witnesses. But, getting back to the education of children, I have never discouraged homeschooling e.g. Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home. I really don't think some people – perhaps many parents – are capable of doing it, at least without some help. It is also a parent's responsibility to go over with his children what they are being taught in public school, even if some teachers don't like the idea.

It really depends on the school district about what the child is being exposed to, and tarring all of them with the same brush is it accurate. You can't condemn any parent who isn't paying attention to what is child is being taught anywhere, be it in public school, private school, or even church. The child is the parents' responsibility.

"christian" and "pastor" are very misused terms. It is time for all responsible parents to get their children out of government education.

Thank God for Christians who are also school teachers. Thing is they don't control the curriculum. One that is based on secular humanism and that man is the measure of all things. That teaches there are no absolutes and that there is no accountability to God. The Scripture is clear, "How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!" (NASB)---your version of preference---While acknowledging it well to point out the importance of parental influence, it is ludicrous to think that peer pressure and school teachers don't have an influence on the child.

The parents have the most influence over their children. For at least five years, a child is never out of a mother's sight. Compulsory attendance school attendance doesn't start until then. Many of the school teachers are also Christians--at least in Nebraska--so they get that experience as well when they do attend public school.

Alan H., Parents are to oversee the education of their children. If it is done well, the Bible will be the center of their learning. If it is not done well, even if a Bible is publicly displayed in the home, it will be nothing more than a decoration.

Jer 10:2 "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen..."

The system gets eight to ten hours with your children and you get a teachable moment - who do you think is going to have the most influence? The damage is already done by your disobedience to God.

Eph 6:4 "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."

You think the secular school system is going to do that for you? Guess again!

Besides, do you really know "ALL" that they are teaching your children. Do you really care to know? Obviously not!

GET REAL and GROW UP pastor!
