The Top Five Reasons Christians  Should Educate Their Children At Home

The Top Five Reasons Christians Should Educate Their Children At Home

  1. Oklahoma endorses federal education policy at the most local levels, as do most other states. With the federal government now sanctioning gay marriage, public schools will not only continue to push sex education, but sex education directly undermining natural law and traditional marriage.
  2. Studies have shown that Christian children are more likely to lose their worldview in a public school than evangelize other children to Christianity. Peer pressure is an enormous issue for children – especially those of middle school age and above – and if peers aren’t Christian influences, they tend to be influences against the Christian world view.
  3. God teaches that parents have control and authority over the education of their children via Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child up in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it”. Deuteronomy 6:4-7 says, “…And tho shalt teach diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
    • Public schools are not willing to teach the Biblical tenets necessary to provide a firm foundation for your child in their relationship with the Lord – the most important part of their upbringing.
  4. Public school literature has become polluted with sexually deviant and explicit reading material. It becomes very hard to fight teachers that assign books from reading lists that include today’s genre of unfiltered, secular humanist world view to an entire class for a grade.
  5. Though you may spend time at home with your children discussing the foundation of their Christian views, children in public schools are often indoctrinated into racism and hatred of America through re-imagined history, or science courses that elevate the Earth and animals above man – God’s first creation.
