I think that I have a Christian teacher in the public school system. Does that handle my responsibility of making sure that my child is instructed and trained in the Lord?
Christian teachers in a school that are not allowed to teach about God are in an incredibly difficult position. They are trying to be an influence for the Lord, but they are not permitted legally to use the most important tool that they have—the Word of God.
Children and adults alike must learn and be changed by the Word of God. It is the very basis for all truth. In John 17:17 Jesus prays for His people and says, “Sanctify them by the truth, Your word is truth.” Christians grow and are made more like Christ as they hear the Word of God. This is why a Christian education is critical.
