Big Ideas to Consider:

1. There are basically two kingdoms: a kingdom of light and a kingdom of darkness. It seems strange to have those who walk in darkness educate children of light. It doesn't fit.

2. If Jesus Christ is Lord, then He is Lord of all. We cannot divide things into secular and sacred.

3. All truth is God's truth, and God's Word sheds light on our path. Only in His light can we see light. Education is not focused on possibilities but on certainties found in God's Word.

4. Deuteronomy 6 tells parents that, in all they do, they should provide a godly education 24/7.

5. Three key institutions that shape a child are the home, the church and the school. Children are served best when all three institutions point them in the same direction.

6. Only an education that has the liberty to address the whole child -- social, intellectual, emotional, physical AND spiritual -- reaches the possibility of excellence.

7. The best preparation for effective service is to be well grounded in one's mind before direct engagement of the culture.

DiscoverChristianSchools.com Applauds the SBC Call for Church Chritian Schools and Family Financial Assistance

Brookhaven, PA, May 3, 2007  -  DiscoverChristianSchools.com fully supports the resolution that was released yesterday by the Southern Baptist Convention as Dr. Frank Page, SBC President, called for more churches to start Christian Schools and to financially assist those families who cannot afford to send their children to Christian schools. 

 

The call to expand Christian education is not only gaining momentum within the Southern Baptist Convention, but crosses all denominational lines as well.  "This call for an 'exodus' from public schools is foundational to solidifying the biblical worldview that we want to pass on to our children and more importantly, we want to give our children the opportunity to make that worldview decision for themselves.  We just don't see the public school system providing the best atmosphere for that to take place," stated Harold Naylor, Director of Institutional Advancement for The Christian Academy and co-founder of DiscoverChristianSchools.com, the communications arm of the Mid-Atlantic Christian School Association.

 

As quoted from the SBC news sources, "Dr. Voddie Baucham notes, 'Dr. Page's call for more Christian schools is the beginning of the "exit strategy" that Dr. Mohler has urged be developed. If the SBC and American Christianity are to survive in any culturally relevant way, we are going to have to repent of our unfaithfulness in the education of our children. And we need to do this sooner rather than later.'
