Gods Word on how to educate our Kids
Are we following God’s curriculum or the world's?
What does the Bible specifically have to say about education, and how can that impact the generations to come?
In the latest episode of Clearly Christian with Dr. Cy Smith, Dr. Smith talks with Dr. Glen Shultz, author, and founder and director of Kingdom Education Ministries about what God has to say about education and how we should be preparing the next generation.
What will society be like in 20 years? The culture and the church will be influenced by how we educate our kids today. What does God want us to do? Is there more to it than just going to school and going to college and going to work?
In this episode’s “Chalkboard Points”, Cy outlines the answer to these questions with three big-picture facts so that you can “Know More” about this issue. Our goal with Chalkboard Points is to help you “know more” so you can do more, think differently, act differently, and be prepared and willing to say “no more” if you must.
Chalkboard Point #1:
God is not silent on the issue of education and we can no longer be silent about this matter. These convictions have to be acted upon now while we have the chance to educate our children and impact the next generation.
Chalkboard Point #2:
Government education has changed drastically and rapidly, and it's not going to turn-around anytime soon. The cultural influence is too strong and the system is too big. Dr. Shultz points out that the culture is not going to take a break, and so we as Christians cannot take time off from fighting for God's worldview and making sure our kids are trained with a biblical perspective.
Chalkboard Point #3:
All education is aimed at some type of outcome. Students are going to have a worldview when they exit school, and this direction is either going to be man-centered or God-centered. Christian schools are the only system outside of the Christian home and church that are going to intentionally instill a biblical worldview in our children. We as educators and church leaders need to reconsider how we help parents think about education and the equation that they are supporting.
