Hiding Our Light Through Homeschooling
PERMANENT NOTICE
Posted by: Grace Reformed Baptist Church | more..
2,300+ views | 180+ clicks
As a vocal advocate for homeschooling, and a soon to be homeschooling father of five I am constantly challenged with a particular issue. Not challenged by conviction or from scripture, but challenged from other Christians, that my children are to be salt and light. Since I withhold my children from these so called institutions of education, I am accused of withholding my children's light unto their schools.

After years of denying that I am withholding my salt and light, I have decided to give in. There is a devout Muslim school in the area, and I believe that this would be a terrific opportunity to let my daughter be the light she is called to be. I have looked into this school, and no matter what the subject is Islamic worldviews are interwoven into both the curriculum and the teaching styles. I know their arguments will be very convincing to a vulnerable mind like that of my 11 year old daughter, but she should be ok, as long as we spend time in the evenings talking about what they learned, and why it goes against our beliefs.

I know that this task will not be easy, but if I give it my all we might just be able to pull it off. Even if she does decide to leave our faith and follow that of her peers, or her instructors at least she may have been a light and made a difference to someone somewhere along the way. After all what right do I have to expect to be her prime influence in life? There are many out there who deserve their equal share of time to try and influence her, and I refuse to be selfish with her mind.

No I have not lost my mind, and yes my daughter will continue to be home schooled. Why is it that we find it unthinkable to send our children to Islamic or Hindu schools, but we have no problem in turning their little hearts and minds over to humanist schools. Shortly after high school 75 to 80 percent of young adults will leave the church never again to return. In recent years all sorts of ministries, classes, and programs have been launched to try and address these staggering departures from the church. Unfortunately these attempts have failed to turn the tides. We scratch our heads, wonder what went wrong, and then turn to the next program. The problem is not a lack of ministries or programs. The problem is that our children are being taught for 13 - 20 years a religion that vehemently opposes Christianity. Thus lies the problem.

From kindergarten to 12th grade children spend 14,000 seat hours in learning. Whoever controls these hours controls these children. -Voddie Baucham

What can theistic Sunday School meeting for an hour once a week do to stem the tide of a five day program of humanistic teaching. -Charles Francis Potter, signer of the Humanist manifesto-
