Why Christian Education?

This is a question that I am often asked, and there are many answers. I want to focus on only one of them today, and that is the curriculum, which is a controlling agent in any type of education. When I was working on my PhD, I took a course on curriculum development. It did not deal with any subject in particular. Curriculum development is primarily concerned with the undergirding philosophy or the presuppositions of the curriculum. It is the part of a curriculum that is not clearly seen, but it is absorbed by students to become a part of their basic belief system which guides their decisions.

Please take some time to watch this video from minute 37:40 to 46:40: Disrupting the Education System While Defending Truth with James Lindsay | PragerU

James Lindsay is not a follower of Christ but is very concerned about how education in the US has been hijacked. He is interviewed by the CEO of PragerU, Marissa Streit. He knows what he is talking about, because he has devoted his life to understanding how education and the world have gotten to where they are today. He has researched who is behind it and what their goals are.  

This is not a “conspiracy theory.” It’s all in print, if you know where to look. That’s what James Lindsay has been doing for the past couple of years—looking, discovering, and alerting.

He’s trying to “sound the alarm,” and we need to understand how Christ-centered thinking and the church are being attacked.

God Bless.
