Education Choices Are Not Neutral

Doug Phillips has posted an excellent counterpoint to those who feel that education is neutral and that parental involvement overcomes the negatives of public education.

Doug also gave a message on this subject, entitled How Important are Educational Choices? Several years ago, I also delivered a message, What the Bible Says about Education. You might also check out the upcoming film, Indoctrination.

Here is the whole article:

Education Choices are Not Neutral: The Implications of Islamic Madrasahs and Government Schools for Our Christian Children

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalm 1: 1-2

Education is inescapably a religious discipline. (more…)

How Evangelicalism Embraces Orthodox Doctrine and Idols at the Same Time

Ian Murray has written a new book, Evangelicalism Divided, where he unpacks the demise of evangelicalism. He states that evangelicals have orthodox beliefs, but they seek success from worldly practices. He writes,

It is that evangelicals, while commonly retaining the same set of beliefs, have been tempted to seek success in ways which the New Testament identifies as ‘worldliness’. Worldliness is departing from God. It is a man-centered way of thinking; it proposes objectives which demand no radical breach with man’s fallen nature; it judges the importance of things by the present and material results; it weighs success by numbers; it covets human esteem and wants no unpopularity; it knows no truth for which it is worth suffering; it declines to be a ‘fool for Christ’s sake’. Worldliness is the mind-set of the unregenerate. It adopts idols and is at war with God. (pg 254-255)

I Boast with Joyful Conscience

“When I look at all the women in the world, I find none of whom I can boast as I boast with joyful conscience of my own. This one God himself gave to me, and I know that He and all the angels are pleased when I hold fast to her in love and fidelity.”

Assurance of Salvation?

Another Example of Calling Evil Good

Now US insurance companies are forced to cover contraceptive methods. The Tennessean reported on this family life tragedy that, “Finally, one of the biggest barriers to effective family planning — access to affordable birth control — has come tumbling down for millions of American women.” This is simply another example of calling evil good and good evil. What happened? The report says, “Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services decided to follow the IOM recommendation and require all new insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act to cover the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods without charging co-pays or other out-of-pocket fees.” In America, we call the rejection of motherhood, the hatred of children and killing, “effective family planning.”

A three-person household gets $526 a month. And a four-person household gets $668 a month.”

What Happens When Delight in the Gospel Fades

Here is a wonderful thought from Justin Taylor’s blog on how, “Ecstasy and delight are essential to the believer’s soul” and how losing it exposes us to spiritual danger. It fits so well with what we read family this morning in Romans 8 as the spirit within us cries out “Abba Father” and with Psalm 69:30-31 where David says, “I will praise the name of God with a song” and “this shall please the Lord better than an ox or bull.”

The blog begins with,

John Flavel (English Puritan – 1630-1691), was one of the main influences in Charles Spurgeon’s spiritual formation in the gospel. This quote will let you know why. (more…)
