Biblical Reasons to Choose Christian Education

“True religion affords government its surest support. The future of this nation depends on the Christian training of the youth. It is impossible to govern without the Bible.” George Washington

Olive Knolls Christian School Education should be Bible-centered and God-centered.

Ephesians 6:4 “Fathers do not exasperate your Children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”

Deuteronomy 5:6-7 “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

Education should be positive and truthful. Proverbs 22:6 “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

Peer influence should be positive and Christ-like.

Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.’

1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be misled Bad company corrupts good character.’

Every teacher’s pattern of life should be worthy of imitation Luke 6:40 ‘A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.”

Only God-centered education gives true wisdom. Psalm 111:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs etemal praise.’

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.’ Colossians 2:3 “…in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.’

Christian schooling is the best hope for transforming society. Matthew 5:13-14 ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? Let is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.’

“The Philosophy of the classroom is the philosophy of the government in the next generation.”

Abraham Lincoln
