Is Christian Education Important?

During March each year we emphasize Calvary Christian School in some very special ways at Calvary Baptist Church. In keeping with that emphasis, in a couple of blogs this month I would like to share with you a few words about Christian education. 
The first word is TRUTH! The apostle John said, “ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”. (Jn 8:32) 
In the church we work hard to lay a solid foundation of TRUTH in the hearts of children & teens because TRUTH does some AMAZING things for them. For example:
  • TRUTH has the power to give children ETERNAL LIFE! Truth is so powerful that it actually means the difference between HEAVEN and HELL!
  • TRUTH has the power to set children FREE! Truth is so powerful that it can set them FREE from Satan’s domination and from their own sinful flesh! 
But what about school? Consider this - if a child is taught the TRUTH for 17,640 hours in school from kindergarten thru 12th grade, that TRUTH can save him from the eternal bondage of hell and from all kinds of bondage in this life. 
But, what do you suppose happens when a child receives those same number of hours of instruction teaching him that God’s truth is a LIE and man’s ways, apart from God, are truth? 
God gives this clear command: “Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.” (Pro. 19:27) God commands us to STOP exposing ourselves to instruction that has the power to cause us to reject truth and embrace error. But children can only obey this command if their parents choose a school that teaches the truth and shields them from error.
If year after year parents allow humanism to be planted in the minds of their children, it should come as no surprise when their adult children “do that which is right in their own eyes”. God is right! We really do reap what we sow! (Gal. 6:7) 
Christian school children learn the truth in every subject every day, and they learn to identify and reject error. 
Moms and dads of Calvary, please ask God for wisdom regarding school for next year. Ask God to give you courage, conviction, and the willingness to make the necessary sacrifices so that your child can be in a school that teaches the TRUTH. Please protect your children from an education that can cause your children to reject the truth.
Special Offer: Any church family new to CCS can register during March for next year and receive an entire month of free tuition for each child (K4-12th grade). 

If you have any questions about Calvary Christian School please visit the school display in the church foyer (pick up a free info packet), or call the school office at 336-983-3743 and ask to speak to Mr. Main.
