Many of us that believe that homeschooling is the best option for raising children wonder when it will dawn on other Christian believers that sending their children to be indoctrinated by the humanist school system might not be the best choice for their kids.
Things like this e-mail from Rachel make you wonder if anyone’s paying attention:
Hey MInTheGap, I was just resting on the counseling couch and I picked up the most recent issue of Charisma. This article was in there. It’s about the California bill that forces public schools to teach about alternative lifestyles. The pastor profiled in the article is urging parents to pull their kids out of school, and now California is trying (it didn’t pass, but it’s probably only a matter of time) to ban parents that don’t have education degrees from teaching their children at home. What is this world coming to?? Are we going to have any say in how our kids are raised???
Seriously, don’t parents realize that their children are being taught the opposite of what any moral Christian parent wants their child to know?
And since when is it the domain of the government to decide a moral question—which “alternate lifestyles” is?
And parents wonder why kids that go to public schools leave the faith—it’s simple. Deuteronomy 6 states that we are supposed to spend our time teaching our kids about God and bringing them up to know Him. How is that supposed to be accomplished when a majority of their waking ours they’re being taught to worship the gods Eros and Mammon. They are taught about Mother Earth and The Almighty Dollar.
When will parents wake up and take a stand?
