Skip to comments.A Challenge to the Modern Church: Invest in Christian Education!

On schools, the Father of the Reformation, Martin Luther, said:
I am much afraid that the universities will prove to be the great gates of hell, unless they diligently labour in explaining the Holy Scriptures, and engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not unceasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt
Tragically, the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in America have proven this wise adage true. In the world today, there are few things more corrupt than the godless government schools that dominate the education system of the United States of America. Additionally — proving themselves "great gates of hell" — few things are more responsible for the widespread immorality, and corresponding cultural rot, that currently plagues America than are the godless government schools. This is true of K–12 schools as well as colleges and universities.
Not only do American government schools shun Scripture, but they directly undermine it. Everything from instruction to discipline is rooted in a godless, secular worldview. America's government schools promote or encourage a wide variety of wicked philosophies that are almost always in direct opposition to a Christian worldview. Most of such philosophies are rooted in the evil "theology of self."

Somehow, we really do need to return to the formation of quality character, instead of fancy formulas. Hard Work is primary, get back to basics, bring back LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.
Sounds like Luther was stating something quite similar to O’Sullivan’s Law centuries ago.
Sad thing is that so many denominations have taken the bait of Satan in their doctrine so kids are learning exactly the same worldly views in church, school and their home.
Revival is happening and Biblical Christianity must be revived in America by the vacant souls who see that the world offers nothing called LIFE!...much less life eternal!!!
Most Protestant Churches have lesbian bishops and the Catholic Church has a Marxist Pope.
Christians need to do what Haredi (”ultra-Orthodox”) Jews did: build their own system of education, which will carefully filter out those aspects of secular culture that are immoral and anti-Christian.
So many private Christian colleges that started out well have now become simply smaller imitations of the secular public colleges. This is because the faculty at the Christian colleges have usually been educated at the secular state universities, and they also often want the approval of their past mentors.
The American Worldview Inventory 2021, conducted under the direction of George Barna at Arizona Christian University, that was cited in the article, found these results:
Millennials ... are far more likely than any other generation to:
Define success in life as happiness, personal freedom, or productivity without oppression
Consider an abortion performed to reduce personal economic or emotional discomfort to be morally acceptable
Consider premarital sex with someone expected to be their future spouse to be morally acceptable
Deem reincarnation a real possibility
Be liberal regarding fiscal and social policies
Champion liberal theology.
The study also reports that Millennials are “much less likely [their emphasis] than Americans from older generations” to:
Embrace the Bible as their primary source of moral guidance
Accept the notion of God being the all-knowing, all-powerful and just creator of the universe who still rules that universe today
Consider Satan to be a real and influential being
Participate in religious activities such as worshipping God, praying to God, studying the Bible, seeking and following God’s will, and asking for God’s forgiveness for their sins
Identify as a Christian
Believe that after they die they will spend eternity in God’s presence solely because they have confessed their sins and have accepted Jesus Christ as their savior.
Pretty much every large church should have a school. Or support one.
Enough with the public schools already
Yesterday I was watching the Game Show network’s Cash Cab . A question was asked of 3 young people ages about 30 years or so, “ Name one the of the Gospels in the new Testament?”
They could not give an answer so had to ask a random person on the street, who answered ‘John’.
Many of our young people have no knowledge of American history or Western Civilization. It would seem to me that a person must be living under a rock to not know Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. One person may have a brain freeze, but three????
