“I went to a public school and I turned out OK!”
It has been said by many Christian parents who have personally attended a public school, “I went to a public school and I turned out OK!” We have to challenge that thinking by asking what a person means when they say that they “turned out OK.” Do they mean that they got saved and are pretty good people?
If that is the case, we should all agree that their “goodness” is due to the grace of God. Rather, every Christian should say, “Praise God that He saved me in spite of the life that I have had!” Should we not look back at our lives and be grieved because we did not learn and apply the truths of God at an earlier age? The correct thinking should be: “How much more I would have known and served the Lord if I began studying the Bible at five years old!”
