Dear Christian families:

It is amazing how far away from God this country has come. Virtually all of our early government leaders, judges and documents quoted the Bible. Now, constant legal challenges are made whenever God or the Bible is mentioned. We should not be surprised when the very educational system of this country does not revere God.

Thought provoking questions:

Does it matter to our youth if the people that teach them and the peers they bond with deny Jesus or love Him?

What mentor would you choose for your child if you had a choice? Would it be a homosexual who will try to influence your child into this behavior? Would it be an atheist who will brainwash your child into believing there is no God? Would you choose a stranger with unknown beliefs and behaviors? Or, would it be you who loves them and will teach them God's truths? God gave you this child; He will supply the wisdom and knowledge for you to teach them and train them up

When we reflect on reasons America was founded-- the freedom to worship Jesus Christ--why then are publicly schooled children forbidden to worship Jesus for the majority of their day?

Considering Homeschooling Ministry helps Christian parents with babies, toddlers, preschoolers and those with their children in public schools discover the blessings of a Biblical home education. We hope the information in this issue will help you in making the decision to Biblically home school your children. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Secular Textbooks

    A California reviewer of middle and high school public school textbooks, said this, "It is common nowadays to see schoolbooks that are packed, from cover to cover, with blatant factual and conceptual errors, with absurd statements that make no sense and with pieces of 'information' that obviously have been invented out of thin air... Of the 300 examined over the past 12 years, "at least 75 percent have been so blatantly incompetent that, with certainty, that the people who wrote them had no idea of what they were writing about."

    When you take the Bible out of education, you have taken the truth out as well. The Bible MUST be the foundation to every textbook and to your child's education.

    In the textbook by William Haviland, Anthropology, 6th ed., Holt-Rhinehard- Winston, 1991. Religion is defined: when people are unable to solve their problems through knowledge and science, they "turn to the manipulation of supernatural beings and powers." In Proverbs 26:12, For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Matthew 26:12. Where does knowledge and wisdom come from, is it separate from God as this author claims?

    It is nearly impossible today, for your children to overcome the ungodly pressures that come from a combination of a secular system, secular teachers, secular textbooks and secular peers, until they are fully trained, mature and wise in the Lord-- and well beyond their school years--so choose a Biblical Home Education and give your children a Godly foundation.

    We have resources to help you learn all about homeschooling, please visit our website for more details on the books and DVD's we offer and recommend.


    Researcher Urges Teachers to Confront Issue of Educator Misconduct

    A study released by the U.S. Department of Education finds that nearly ten percent of public school students are sexually harassed or abused at some point by an educator or school worker.

    The report by Hofstra University professor Charol Shakeshaft says more than 4.5 million children have been subjected to physical, verbal, or visual sexual abuse in school over the last decade. Required under the No Child Left Behind Law, the report is the first to analyze the field of research on educator sexual misconduct.


    Why Homeschool?

    Why homeschool? Is it really effective? Am I qualified to teach my children? Aren't public schools OK? What about socialization?

    "The Little Book of Big Reasons to Homeschool" addresses the benefits to mind, body, and soul, and answers the tough questions about homeschooling-- academics, socialization, spiritual training, and more. Plus, discover what what the mindset was behind the establishment of today's system of mass education, and where has it led us as a society.
