"Maybe twenty years from now the Christian parents who are sending their children to government schools will wake up and recognize that this was a horrible mistake - that this was tantamount to child abandonment, child endangerment, and child abuse. But now they defend it as a spiritual thing - 'helping our children to be missionaries.' Little do they realize that they are asking PAGANS to disciple their children to become PAGANS. And it's horrifying."
-- Phillip Kayser
How very true. Christian parents need to be aware and wake up to this fact--that when they send their children off to public school (government school), they are sending them off to be indoctrinated by pagans, by those who defy the Lord and have no interest in Him. Why? Why send our precious gifts from God to be spiritually slaughtered in their minds and hearts? Should we not take great care to train them up ourselves? We need to take great care with our children. They were not given to be missionaries when they are yet children and unconverted. Even if they've been born again, they are not spiritually fit to take on a school system of unbelief and antagonism towards God. And Psalm 1 says:
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
