THE WAR FOR THE SOULS AND MINDS OF CHRISTIAN CHILDREN ALONG WITH THE SPIRITUAL WAR TO CLOSE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS LONG OVERDUE!
Martin Luther was right. Schools not founded in Christ are hog-pens, they are of Satan and they will perish!
“For, it is my serious opinion, prayer, and desire that these hog-pens and Satan’s schools either be sunk into the abyss or changed into Christian schools”. ~Martin Luther, To Magistrates and Councilmen
“Gerhard Groote, a wealthy and educated man from Holland, saw a need and founded the Brethren of the Common Life schools. These schools stressed piety and Christian living…These schools were foundational to the Reformation insomuch as Martin Luther, John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and other reformers were trained in Brethren of Common Life schools or ones inspired by them…
“These schools, existing primarily in Holland and Germany, maintained, as do Christian schools today, “Learning without piety was rather a curse than a blessing.”” (Kienel 189).
“Above all in schools of all kinds the chief and most common lesson should be the Scriptures….but where the Holy Scriptures are not the rule, I advise no one to send his child. Everything must perish where God’s Word is not studied unceasingly”. ~Martin Luther
E. Ray Moore Director of Exodus Mandate has submitted a paper to Liberty University’s 500th Anniversary celebration of the Reformation. The quotes above were taken from it. It is titled and can be found here: What Once Was Can Be Again. In it, Moore documents the clear connections between the Reformation and the Biblical training/education of children.
Many Christian schools have lost their way today because they sought the humanist state’s money and accreditation. R. J. Rushdoony says here that the Christian school should be so superior in knowledge and training that all other schools will be seeking the Church’s accreditation, not the other way around.
Failing Christian schools will be restored once they also end their idolatry of the state.
