Why Home School?

The government schools donít care about your childrenís spiritual wellbeing.  They only care about seeing that they are educated well enough to keep the economy rolling and to be sure to continue voting them (the government) into power.

Most parents today, make education and a getting a good job the number one priority for their children.  Then when their children are grown they wonder why their kids never joined the church or didn't remain faithful to it. 

Parents, we make a mistake when we make a good school and good paying job our childrenís #1 priority.  We may take our children to church but what are a few hours one day a week compared to 40 hours of public education and 40 hours of watching television?  If the average Christian attends church for 2 hours then his ratio of worldly to spiritual influence is 40:1.  No wonder we have a problem!  The government schools, T.V., movies, secular friends, adds and commercials and sometimes even church friends are all working to indoctrinate our children with the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh and the pride of life.

With only a couple of hours in church each week wining against those odds is nearly impossible.  If we donít take back our childrenís time from the influence of the world, then we can count on the continued loss of our posterity to wordly churches and the ways of the world.

We must counter indoctrinate our children.  If you donít brainwash your kids donít worry, someone else will.  The scripture says we are supposed to be in the world not of the world. 

What is to be done about it?  Bringing children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, means more than just going to church on Sundays.  It means time spent in family devotions it means separation from the world.  The Christian family who desires to live a separate life needs to consider home schooling.
