LIBERAL EDUCATION = HELL

Filed at 7:54 pm under by dcobranchi

That’s the take-home message in this post from the Director of the Christian Worldview Center. But Christians ought to leave their kids in the g-schools anyway.

So we are the enemy now. At least I know where we stand.

He had a typo– it should have been “Enemy,” as in Cavalon’s boss.

Now God wants me to put my kids in public school. For one thing, why is attending public school seen by so many as an all-encompassing, all-influencing, all-giving experience? Only thru it can we reach nirvana. Or reach the heathens, or end rascism, or meet people different from ourselves, or know ourselves, or…blah blah blah. I hate the idea of my children being thought of as the means to someone else’s ends.

Get your “4-year-old-who-will-turn-5-before-the-Oct-16th-deadline” a 3-piece suit, a honkin’ great big Bible, and teach him how to thump it because he will be the one you’re sending through those “gates of hell” no matter how many times Dr. Beam uses the words “we” and “us” in his rants.

Heard it, heard it, heard it! I can’t believe we are back to these same old arguments against homeschooling!

For the record, I’ll state that I am a Christian. And also for the record I’ll state that I think those fellow’s views are unfounded, i.e. leaving Christian children in public schools. And this is why:

If they actually read their Bibles and *believed* what was contained inside its pages they would recognize that this world is winding down and their Bible clearly states that this world will NOT be saved.

Their Bibles clearly state (if they bothered to read them) Take care of your own -and- help those others who care to listen -and- if they don’t listen, leave them behind.

It doesn’t matter a whit to me if other people believe as I do or not. If people want to believe – fine with me. If they don’t want to believe – again, fine with me. I will never, ever try to persuade someone to believe as I do. The only thing I will -ever- do is explain my point of view *if* someone asks.

I find their ‘salt & light’ argument to be complete and utter BS. If they want to sacrifice their children on that altar – fine. But don’t ask me to sacrifice mine – because I won’t. (And I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone else, either)

I haven’t seen anything in public schools that would cause me to recommend them to anyone. Look at it this way – if a friend asked you about a certain model car and you had nothing good to say about it, it had low gas mileage, it was expensive to purchase and operate, it had safety issues, and it was also very ugly, would say, ‘Hey, buy it anyway! It’s good for the economy!’? Heck no, you wouldn’t! So why would a thinking person recommend a school with the same attributes? Doesn’t make sense, does it?

He thinks Christians have had their heads in the sand and blindly dropped kids off at the door? Well, one; many people have been fighting for change and reform – what does he think has gone on the past 40 years? Nobody protested these changes? Um, YEAH. We did.
And two; by saying what he did, he’s given a whole new reason for parents to once again drop their kids off at the door and not worry about it, because he said it’d be okay. He’ll take care of it, right?

And what Unique said.

See what you mean. He and the rest of the parents whose kids are in PS are going to quit their jobs to oversee the education of Christian children. That’s the only level of involvement that will suffice to help these poor little lambs storm the “gates of hell”. But then, if they do that they may as well keep their kids at home and teach them. Wow…deja vu!

Thanks for highlighting this. My comment became too long so I blogged about it.
