Anyone who has attended our seminars probably remembers that I am an ardent believer in "Christian" education. Once we were delivered from the drug culture and the secular music scene, Melanie and I sent our daughters to Christian schools and now we are blessed to see our two granddaughters attend a good Christian school as well. But thats not really what I mean when I say "Christian education." It is one thing to be educated in a Christian setting and to have the advantage and blessing of being taught the Bible and related issues. But equally important is our obligation to pass on our historical heritage as a Christian people and to make certain that our lineage and virtually all who come in contact with us are given the opportunity to understand the tremendous, even astounding truths that frame the freedoms that ALL Americans (and Canadians) share.
Todays secular education establishment is littered with glaring inaccuracies. That statement will upset many but please dont misunderstand. I am grateful for Christians who teach in our public schools and who attempt to instill absolute values in our kids. It is the sometimes-inaccurate curriculum that concerns me most. Though arguably the curriculum deficiencies may be numerous, I wish to focus on one in particular here. In the case at hand, it is not that curriculum writers have necessarily introduced erroneous information. Instead, they have ignored an entire historical aspect so crucial to our American birthright that we should all wonder just what else might be missing in the year-by-year plan brought forth by these so-called "keepers of knowledge."
Todays public school students are taught to varying extents about the Revolutionary War. They hear about Paul Revere, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and others from our history. But they hear precious little about what our Founding Fathers believed spiritually, about their faith and about the very core reason why they fled England and declared themselves independent of its tyrannical rule.
