Today we’re talking about education. And specifically, how Christians should educate their children.
Are Christian parents biblically mandated to chose one particular model of education over another? Or is it purely a matter of preference? What does the bible actually say about education? Should we expect our children to be missionaries to the culture around them? Or should we shelter them at all costs? Is there a middle ground? These are critical questions that no parent should take lightly.
This week, Peter, Aaron, and guest-hosts Carrie Brown and Ami Finley talk about the state of education in our day, what the bible actually says about how we should educate our children, how we should think about the options available to us, and how those decisions will impact our kids.
“The divorce that I see in Christianity and the church today is that some parents almost assume that the educator of my child is going to only educate them on mathematics, science, language, arts, etc. When Luke 6 talks about the child becoming like the teacher, it is not primarily the formal educator — it’s the person the child respects most and is around the child the most. So if your child is being raised by CNN or the Discovery Channel or Nickelodeon, those are their educators, and your children are going to adopt those mindsets and worldview.” ~ Aaron Currin'If your child is being raised by CNN or the Discovery Channel or Nickelodeon, those are their educators, and your children are going to adopt those mindsets and worldview.” ~ Aaron CurrinClick To Tweet
