Homeschooling has become a viable option for parents
Back-to-School sales are hitting stores across the country but an increasing number of parents are preparing for a decidedly non-traditional Back-to-School – those choosing to homeschool their children. Many people think of homeschooling as something reserved for the religious and the free-spirited but nothing could be further from the truth. Homeschooling is no longer a fringe movement. It is a viable mainstream option for many parents. It’s also a choice my wife and I have made for our family.

Homeschooling has traditionally been done by Christian families but the main reasons parents choose homeschooling today don’t strictly resonate with religious families. Parents are given a way to develop customized curricula for their children. In addition to faith-based learning parents have the freedom to emphasize the values they feel should be incorporated into their child's education. They also have ...

Ah, Shockwow! something that I really wanted to, but didn't in my Baptism testimony, is that the Animal House types that (and almost to some degree all Frat houses are like that -- where do you think American politicians and insurance salesmen come from? ) But perhaps one of the very few cases where negative psychology worked There harrassment turned me to Christ for help. I wish there was an easy way to Christ, but these just never seems to be. So, I can thank these future,

1 Corinthians 6
0 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB

I really hope some of them are part of the elect, q.v., Election: Whose Choice? and come to Christ it's a horrible thing to be suffer the wraith of God.

If I was a really good social reformer, I would be demanding these Animal Houses be removed or changed, (one think make sure they and any profs that willingly helped them get kicked out) but will this turn these universities into gardens of Eden--of course not

A lot of questions.

But if you were to interview young people in depth today, who are out on the street, you would discover that they know very little about what is right and what is wrong. Their consciences are messed up, and they get a lot of their mentoring from the TV, instead of church.

Calvinism is wrong, Arminianism is wrong. The article is about home schooling.

1) Huh?. Election and trust cannot be related, if I follow your understanding of election being from eternity past properly.
What shockwow said, Mike, was "Trust in God and HE will elect."

So if you put your trust in God, he will elect you unto salvation.

Eh up! That's the arministical theory.

2) Empowering is a means, not an end. So does empowering to do, make the doing of it irresistable?

3) I'm delighted there is one "all" you have no trouble with. Now try working on "whole world"

Alas, you have some truth, but lacking in other truth. For example, when I was a lad, school assemblies were the norm. We had to learn and memorise scripture and the Lord's Prayer, heard readings from the Holy Bible, and were acquainted with nominal Christianity. Whether or not the gospel was ever preached I do not know. But I do know it had an effect on all men, not simply "the elect". Today, the secular society also has "an effect" on all men. An adverse one.

For example, did you know that in the 50's and 60's it was quite normal for every house to leave their doors unlocked all day long? Why? Because "religion" had an upper hand, and most children attended a Sunday School, which "affected" them for the good. I'm not talking here about salvation, but real life in this world.

its like this Mike.... "amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me"

that's what it means to acknowlege your election is to remember that He pulled you from the miry clay.

reminds us that while we were still enemies, Christ died for us.

it is boasting on God.

We are all sinners and begin as fallen in a fallen world - Then God saves!!
It is not within the ability or faculty of man the sinner to change from worldly to saved.
ONLY God does that for the elect.
Those for whom God does not change direction; - Are bound for hell and have been on that journey all their lives. School or church or parent or preacher cannot avert that process.

What is this salvation by election anyway? A lottery system? A respecter of persons thing? A pride thing, "I'm elect cause I follow Calvin, you're not cause you is a bad Arminian"?

And guess what Jim Christians are born into a fallen world. Wow! Did you know this Jim???
When you say "born", are you speaking about the new birth or the old birth?

Whichever way, your argument is most faulty. Perhaps you were unaware that God's elect yet unsaved can become heroin addicts. And God's elect yet unsaved can suffer needlessly because of where they go and who they have truck with. If you've ever seen a new convert in your church coming from outside, you'll have noticed that they are very, very damaged by their former life. Please bear it in mind, lest you damage God's chosen and beloved people even more.

Guess what - and this will probably surprise you - This is a fallen world Jim Honest! And guess what Jim Christians are born into a fallen world. Wow! Did you know this Jim???

So going to school does what to the Christian? Does it change God's mind about who gets elected???
If a 'real' Christian goes to school and they teach Darwins theory - Does God Deselect them and send them to hell???

And if you actually build a 'Christian' school where all the teachers go to church, and even pray, And all the kids who go there are from Christian families - Will God elect the kids on that basis???

We live in a fallen world Jim, and fallen kids go to fallen schools and fallen politicians and fallen bureaucrats run this fallen society.

BUT BUT BUT
That does not defeat God's purpose for church or elect.

Honest Jim. Thats the truth.

Trust in God Jim even at school - or anywhere in this fallen society.

Perhaps life on earth, I learn a lot in all my advanced education, none of which has be useful in the job market. I should have went to a Vocational School and perhaps college and then would have had a much better time with it. (Christians don't send you children to universities that have national Greek letter social [criminal] societies!).

But I digress from the article, atheists have been home schooling for years, and in truth if you have some exceeding bright children a public school is a detriment. But Christians have found that home schooling is an advantage for even non-geniuses, see the video, NET: Home School Nebraska, and for parents in Nebraska who want more information, Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home.

The only problem with home schooling not only may atheists might have an abusive environment but various cults and religions, e.g., Muhammadans may become increasing interested in that or madrassas Other Taxpayer-Funded American Madrassas!

"This is not to say homeschooling is for everyone because for many families school is a necessary component in their life."

Homeschooling is for rich kids.
Lesser mortals need not apply.

But then education is only for those who are born with a good memory. Whereas those not born with this gift are ostracized from the jobs market because they don't have a competitive commodity to sell. Thus they will loose in the competition that is education, vocation and life.

"For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always."
