Christian Parents & Public Schools

As school is starting up again, I am seeing many parents posting pictures of their children on their first day of school for whatever grade they are in. Although some of these parents have their children being homeschooled and even fewer going to a private Christian school, the majority are going to a public school. These parents, including many Christian parents, are also showing excitement for their children going to public school.

While I would love to be excited for them, I cannot be so. My heart is breaking for any child that has to go to a public school, and this has absolutely nothing to do with the recent mass shootings in public schools. The mass shootings are the least of my concerns. It is extremely rare for a mass shooting to occur in a school and even less chance when considering how many thousands of schools there are around the nation.

To begin with explaining my concerns for going to public school I would ask if there is any parent that would willingly send their child into a war zone that has literal bombs and guns being shot day and night. I don’t think that there is a parent that would send any child into that war zone. Most parents would not even want their adult children to go into that war zone as part of the military. The main reason most would not send them into that war zone is that it is dangerous, and the chance of death is extremely high.

Now the question arises, what does a war zone have to do with Christian children and public schools? Everything!

Public schools are a war zone that is more dangerous than any bomb or gun being shot at a person. Bombs and guns only injure or kill the body of a person. The public schools destroy the soul of most children by what they teach.

To begin with, nearly every public school across the nation does not teach creation as a fact and often teach evolution as a fact. As a believer one cannot teach that creation is only a theory. Either the Bible is true or it is false. Either the world and everything was created by God or it is a lie and it was not.

Why would a Christian parent send a child into a war zone teaching this way?

Next, nearly every school teaches that gender can be whatever a person chooses or feels. This is a direct lie from the pits of hell.

God made man and woman, male and female and nothing else. As the Bible describes all the animals, they are described as male and female also. Mankind has chosen to ignore God’s creation and say that a person can be either and have changes made to their body to be either. Regardless of what a person feels or does with surgery, he/she is still the same gender as when he/she was born and cannot change that. All that is changing is the outward appearance.

Why would a Christian parent send a child into a war zone that teaches this?

Next is that nearly every public school teaches or allows for sex to be whatever a person determines it to be. This means it can be male/male, male/female, female/female or some other variation. The Bible teaches that a man is to leave his parents and cling to his wife (woman), not anyone else. This is taught in both the Old and New Testaments. Along with this is that the Bible teaches that anyone living in sexual immorality will not get into heaven. Yet, the world is pushing for marriage and sex outside of Biblical marriage and sex and is promoting it as good in the public schools.

Why would a Christian parent send a child into a war zone that teaches this?

Another point is that public schools teach that Jesus was just a good person, if they teach about Him at all. Most schools do not allow any teaching about Jesus at all with very few exceptions. The Christian parent must believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior or he is not a believer nor a Christian. Either the Bible is true about what it says about Jesus, or it is false.

Again, why would a Christian parent send a child into a war zone that teaches this?

This just gives a few major reasons what public schools teach that is against God. With all of this, many Christian parents send their children into the public schools to be a ‘witness’ of God to the other children.

With this action I would ask if a child that is six years old been trained enough to be a witness for Jesus when faced with the giant enemy?

Nowhere in the Bible is a child sent to do a man’s job. When the Bible says to go out into all the world, Jesus was talking to the disciples–grown men, not children. The Bible does talk about training up a child in the way to go, but it never says to send them out until they are grown.

Most Christian children under high school age have most likely not been trained enough to know how to combat the lies that are sometimes openly and sometimes subtly taught in the public schools.

Satan goes around masquerading as an angel of light seeking to deceive and devour everyone. One of his greatest assets is the public school system. There are individual teachers out there that are trying to teach truth, but as a whole the public school system will not allow it and does not teach truth.

I ask, if you are a Christian parent to prayerfully consider pulling them out of the public school system. The best choice is to homeschool them. Be willing to give up some of the luxuries of life to have one parent home to be able to school them in God’s ways and truth. There is a nearly an infinite number of sources available to help teach your child nearly anything and everything.

If you cannot homeschool, then strive to get them into a good private Christian school that will teach the truth.

I ask why would you, as a Christian believing parent, be happy to send your child into a war zone that is working hard to claim their soul for Satan? This loss will be for eternity, not just a physical, temporary death.
