The Case for Christian Education

I came across a blog today and I had to share this post! It is a must read! She gives many links that are worthy of reading:

A quote she shared from John Wesley, I also wanted to share. What would John Wesley say today in this society that has schools which teach as though God is irrelevant to a child's education and that some think its acceptable to leave the Creator; God out of a child's learning. To let them be taught by a system that most definitely, beyond any doubts, supports satan's type of education - the Godless one........let John Wesley's words speak even unto this day as it applies even more the so!! God give us more men like these who have their eyes on the greater learning - that which God is a part of!

"Let it be remembered, that I do not speak to the wild, giddy, thoughtless world, but to those that fear God. I ask, then, for what end do you send you children to school? “Why, that they may be fit to live in the world.” In which world do you mean, — this or the next? Perhaps you thought of this world only; and had forgot that there is a world to come; yea, and one that will last for ever! Pray take this into your account, and send them to such masters as will keep it always before their eyes. Otherwise, to send them to school (permit me to speak plainly) is little better than sending them to the devil. At all events, then, send your boys, if you have any concern for their souls, not to any of the large public schools, (for they are nurseries of all manner of wickedness,) but private school, kept by some pious man, who endeavors to instruct a small number of children in religion and learning together."

The matter is simple for you must only ask yourself these questions:
  1. Would God support/approve of an education that leaves God out?
  2. Is God behind such an education?
  3. Does God smile happily as your child learns science, history, etc minus the Creator?
You can't say yes to any of these but you could if you replace "God" with "satan" and then you can see the big picture and you will begin to THINK and realize just who is behind the curtain. Let me replace that for you:
  1. Would satan support/approve of an education that leaves God out?
  2. Is satan behind such an education?
  3. Does satan smile happily as your child learns science, history, etc minus the Creator?
Whose side will you choose? Whose report will you believe? Is God irrelevant to a child's education or not? I hope to provoke others to thought as that is the purpose for even God himself said "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" - you can't just follow the crowd because the crowd is going to hell.
