I believe that the single most important decision you make as a parent is “who will educate my children and what will we teach them and allow them to be taught?”.
I believe the single greatest gift, next to introducing your children to christ and providing them a loving, stable marriage, is a home education! An education where they are loved, affirmed, and secured from mean spirited harassment and humiliation. Where they are given the time and attention they need and spared from the unnecessary distractions and influence of fools! A place where their uniqueness can be developed, their character molded and Godly truth instilled into their hearts and minds. Nothing will ever replace the power and instruction of a Godly mother and a teacher who is totally devoted just to them.
Homeschooling allows you to build a biblical way of life and a christian culture in your children’s lives, instead of one often infected with secularism and humanistic, liberal ideology.
Today, in our present culture, public schools have become the place for systematic indoctrination of your children into a secular world-view and the full immersion of their persons into an unGodly youth culture of foolishness, vulgarity, sensuality, carnality and immature behavior. All things the bible speaks and warns us against!
The public school system has a social and moral agenda, a world-view agenda, an origins agenda, an environmental agenda, and they are all the exact opposite of gods agenda in these areas.
Let me state emphatically, that home education does not guarantee that your child will grow up with hearts for god and a passionate devotion to christ! But let me also state with equal emphasis, that when home education is combined with, Godly parenting, a spiritually passionate, christ following, emotionally engaged , directive father, a spiritually devoted, christ following, self disciplined, god fearing, loving mother, and parents who emphasize and build Godly character and set a Godly example themselves, who have their children and themselves devotedly involved in a new testament church, who as parents are devoted to the great commission, living with a missionary mind set and a biblical world view and exalt the word of god, this does indeed offer the closest thing to a guarantee that you will ever find and the best possible chance, that your children will grow up with a heart for god and devotion to following christ. After raising four children my self, carefully studying the data, observing thousands of families first hand, and a careful study of the scriptures, given the present cultural realities and the present state of our public education, this is your very best chance for raising your children to follow christ all the days of their life. The research and statistics, as well as personal experience, make it abundantly clear that the home education model when combined with the above ingredients offers you the closest thing to a foolproof guarantee you will ever find. I believe that home schooling is the greatest tool we have for raising Godly children.
I believe that home education, whenever possible, offers the best option for raising Godly children, as it provides multifaceted opportunities for a mother to train her children in character development, life skills, interpersonal skills, and academic necessities. It allows the mother to have the time with the children needed to nurture, guide, shape and train the child in life’s most important lessons. It allows the time needed for a mother to imprint her Godly life upon her child.
