Considering Homeschooling Ministry
January 2007
Dear Christian families:

It is no secret that the public schools are changing the hearts of our Christian youth towards humanism, secularism and anti-Christian thinking and behavior. We hope our ministry, website, and free materials will help you understand how important Biblical home education is. Our purpose is to introduce you to the blessings of homeschooling your children from a Christian worldview. Seek first the kingdom of God. And this means in education too!

Please consider forwarding this e-mail to your family and friends.

In His service,
Denise Kanter

Brief History of Education
For the first 200 years of education in North America, the primary goal of schooling was to foster religious devotion. The original Puritan and Separatist colonists, inheriting the Reformation's concern that everyone be able to read the Bible, opened schools for the purpose of teaching children how to study the Scriptures. A biblically literate population was seen as the best insurance for a successful society.

Our founding fathers recognized that education should primarily serve to encourage faith in Christ. They acknowledged that civilization's health and very existence depended on people who understood and lived Christian principles.

George Washington said, "True religion affords government its surest support. The future of this nation depends on the Christian training of the youth. It is impossible to govern without the Bible."

Noah Webster wrote, "The education of Youth is an employment of more consequence than making laws and preaching the gospel, because it lays the foundation on which both law and gospel rest for success."

Charter Schools are public schools.
Without breaking the law, you cannot use Christian curriculum, teach anything about Jesus during school hours and your children are still under the control of the government. Please visit the link below, and fully inform yourself about Charter Schools and why they are simply little public schools with all the negative consequences that come with it.
Homeschool regulation: The revenge of the failures by Dr. Bruce Shortt
In their never-ending effort to "help" homeschoolers, public school bureaucrats periodically try to increase homeschooling regulations. This makes K-12 education perhaps a unique endeavor: it's a field in which the failures regularly, and astonishingly, insist that they should be able to regulate the successful.

Never mind that homeschoolers consistently outperform children institutionalized in government schools......

Matthew 6:19-21
“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” To determine what you treasure, evaluate the amount of time, money, and thought you devote to something. Think about the things you treasure and consider what these treasures say about where your heart is.
