Stealing Our Children

We need to send our children into the public schools to be witnesses for Jesus.  I have heard this reasoning many times from parents who send their children into public schools. 

However, in order to prepare missionaries for the mission field, it takes lot of time, sometimes many years.  They have to be taught the ways of the culture they are going to and they need to be strong in their faith.  Our young children are not strong in their faith and do we want them to know the ways of their peers?  Besides, if they speak about Jesus or pray, they will be kicked out. They are not to be open about their faith in any way.

Here are some words written by Nancy Campbell, a woman I greatly admire. She has been an older woman teaching me for many years.  Ponder her words carefully ~

How can it be that parents living in USA, 
who love God and confess they believe the Bible, 
send their children into the public education system 
that does not believe the Bible? 

How can parents who believe in prayer, 
send their children into schools where they are not allowed to pray? 

How can God-fearing parents who love to speak about 
Jesus send their children into schools where, 
by law, they are not allowed to confess that Jesus is Lord?

Why do they send them to be educated by the ungodly 
who scorn the existence of God and the truth of biblical family?

Why do they want them to be daily brain-washed in humanism and socialism?

Why do they want their children to receive an
opposite message to what they receive at home? 

Perhaps it is because we are like sheep and we follow along with what everyone else is doing. We do not stop to think of the outcome. We want to assimilate into society rather than change society....The humanists and socialists are educating the next generation and stealing the minds of children from godly homes. 

Teach them {God's ways} to your children,
talking about them when you sit in your house
and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.
Deutoronomy 11:19

Bring them {your children} up in 
the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4
