Education from Worship

If our purpose is to glorify and worship God and enjoy him forever, then education, as with all aspects of life, should be an expression of that worship.

True worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth…

John 4:21-24

“What is the chief end [or purpose] of man? Man’s chief end [or purpose] is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” – A Baptist Catechism, question 2

“God is to be worshipped everywhere in spirit and truth – daily in each family and privately by each individual.” – 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, 22:6

“Worship is central to life; therefore, it is central to education for that life… education and learning follow worship and proceed from it… education that does not begin and end in heaven is not true education.” – Wilson, The Case for Classical Christian Education

“Walk about Zion, go around her, number her towers, consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels that you may…

tell the next generation that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will guide us forever.

Psalm 48:12-14

Education is Warfare – Disciple the Nations – SexEd?

Education is warfare

We, Christian families and the Church, are called to disciple all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them all of God’s commands.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:19-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Why such a focus on sex in government education? Is education primarily sexual?!?

We Will Not Be Silenced: Responding Courageously to Our Culture’s Assault on Christianity
by Erwin W. Lutzer

“A reminder that “secular” doesn’t mean neutral. As Jesus said “Whoever is not with me is against me…” (Mathew 12:30). Secular means anti-God. A reminder public school education is not neutral. Everyone has a worldview, a religion, through which they see the world around them. Teachers are not neutral. Curricula are not neutral. Don’t be shocked when a secular curricula does not promote Christian morality. Without God’s absolute Word as the foundation, anything goes. Parents are now seeing “secular” for what it really is.” Ken Ham https://twitter.com/aigkenham/status/1415989585117646848?s=21

Government schools claim to be neutral, but they are not. They are promoting a worldview, a godless religion. “The Christian faith is not a condiment to be used to flavor the neutral substance of secular knowledge. Paul tells us that every thought is to be made captive to Christ (2 For. 10:1-4)… Jesus said we are to disciple the nations, and to the extent that we see anything out of line with His Word, we are to call that into obedience.” (The Case for Classical Christian Education by Doug Wilson)

Is our children’s education grounded on the Truth? Are we making disciples? Or is our faith in Jesus Christ just a condiment squirted on a pagan education?

Household Prayer – 3/30/2021

“For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him.””

‭Genesis‬ ‭18:19‬ ‭ESV‬‬ https://www.bible.com/59/gen.18.19.esv

Brothers, today I’m praying for our households. Praying that we would be set apart and dependent on the Lord in community with our church, including our CC community.

The link below is a video reviewing the diary of a young man and his household from the 1800s with a lesson for us as men today. I find it fascinating and inspiring. My personal family vision is to leave a Godly legacy. Working that out over the last 16 years has evolved into the practical theology of building a Godly household. I’ve spent the last 2-3 years considering what a Godly household is from Scripture. Some thoughts on it are to be “set apart” (holy, set apart for God) and “dependent on no one” (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12). To be builders and producers. To be fruitful, fill the earth, and take dominion (Gen. 1:28; Gen. 2:15; Gen. 14:4; Gen. 18:19; Jeremiah 29:4-7; Matt. 28:18-20). I have a long way to go. I hope the video is encouraging to you as well.

Household: (Hebrew: bayit) family, estate, dynasty, armory, clan, strong fortress.

Economy: Latin from the Greek oikonomia, oikos: household, nemein: manage, or household management.

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to? 
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
We humans are created in His image.
We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.
But God is merciful and loving. 
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!

HouseHold Prayer 2/18/21

If we have assumed… that our children learned what they needed to know simply by ecclesial and cultural osmosis, let us be clear that we may hold this assumption no longer. Now is not the time to play down our doctrine of mankind; now is the time to teach it with confidence and with joy, seeking to be witnesses to fellow sinners and guides to all God’s flock.

“Reenchanting Humanity: a theology of mankind” by Owen Strachan

Brothers, I was reading in Numbers 14, “And your children shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years and shall suffer for your faithlessness, until the last of your dead bodies lies in the wilderness.” Numbers‬ ‭14:31, 33‬.

I feel the time is short. I don’t want my children to suffer because of my faithlessness to prepare them. I want to walk with my children out into the ministry to be a witness, to go and make disciples, and to be an ambassador for our King and His Kingdom in this foreign land! To instruct and disciple them to stand firm in the faith, being bold with God’s truth and grace, even in a culture of growing hostility.

Pray for the motivation and energy to make discipleship a priority in our lives and in our homes. To lead by example. Pray that we would not be distracted by lessor things.

Read Numbers 14.

I’ll share opportunities for public witness and discipleship during the current 40 Days for Life campaign when the temps warm up a bit. I know making it out during the work day with your family is hard, but it is the best time to be a witness when Planned Parenthood is open, and it opens amazing discipleship opportunities with your children. Take a long lunch if you can. (Just encouraging in love, no condemnation if you can’t make it out! Find other opportunities.)

“We have raised a generation on youth group skits and entertainment, failing to prepare them for the cost and battle of public witness to Christ… ‘Do not try to hide your children from the world forever, but do not try to pretend there is no danger. Train them. Give them sharp eyes and bellies full of laughter. Make them dangerous. Make them yeast, and when they’ve grown, they will pollute the shadows.’”

Strong and Courageous: Following Jesus Amid the Rise of America’s New Religion https://press.founders.org/shop/strong-and-courageous/

“We have to change our church philosophy from telling to training… ‘Jesus had twelve men with whom he traveled and lived for three years, and even they did not understand nor act on all He taught them. Jesus knew that disciples are best made by life on life interaction, living transparently, watching and observing, along with extensive times of question and answer. And we must do the same. His last words were to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” We have to stop emphasizing an “attractional” model and adopt a training and sending model of church philosophy’… Discipleship is not just what you know; it is a lifestyle lived.”

The Church in Babylon: Heeding the Call to Be a Light in the Darkness by Erwin W. Lutzer https://a.co/3ezHHzp

We have been told that we people are the chance result of impersonal chaos working its dark magic on the universe… The outcome of such thinking? Humanity is disenchanted…

But this is not the biblical account of man… God, the beautiful one, made the human race as his capstone work, his corporeal masterpiece (Ps 8:3-6; 27:4) … The imago dei marks out humanity as an enchanted race. Tragically, humanity disenchanted itself by following the anti-wisdom of the serpent…

If we have assumed… that our children learned what they needed to know simply by ecclesial and cultural osmosis, let us be clear that we may hold this assumption no longer. Now is not the time to play down our doctrine of mankind; now is the time to teach it with confidence and with joy, seeking to be witnesses to fellow sinners and guides to all God’s flock.

Household Prayer 2/11/2021



Brothers, today my heart is on community. What a grace of God is the community of the “visible saints” as they meet together in churches for worship, and what a grace of God is our community of households coming together to love and support one another in a common mission under God to educate and bring up our children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” A holy, set apart, loving and caring witness to the Kingdom of God.

Pray for our community. Pray for individual families you know, and pray for a heart to love and serve them. Pray that we can and will depend on one another in times of celebration, in times of mourning, and in times of trial.

Read John 13:34-35

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.””

‭John‬ ‭13:34-35‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/jhn.13.34-35.esv

“The Church… All people throughout the world who profess the faith of the gospel and obedience to God through Christ in keeping with the gospel are and may be called visible saints… Those who are called He commands to live together in local societies, or churches, for their mutual edification and the fitting conduct of public worship that He requires of them while they are in the world… saints by calling, visibly displaying and demonstrating in and by their profession and life their obedience to the call of Christ.”
“The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith in modern English” Founder Press

“It is easily forgotten that the fellowship of Christian brethren is a gift of grace, a gift of the Kingdom of God that any day may be taken from us, that the time that still separates us from utter loneliness may be brief indeed. Therefore, let him who until now has had the privilege of living a common Christian life with other Christians praise God’s grace from the bottom of his heart. Let him thank God on his knees and declare: It is grace, nothing but grace, that we are allowed to live in community with Christian brethren.”
Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Household Prayer 1/26/2021


Brothers, pray for the challenge guys camp this weekend. Pray that these young men would develop closer relationships with Jesus and each other. Relationships that transcend this world and life. Pray that the devotionals would instruct and encourage to have a kingdom impact.

Also pray for health in our community. Pray for healing for the sick.

I would encourage loving graceful response to members of our churches that may be concerned about the coming government education mandates. We need to band together to love and serve others if they feel the need to make new educational choices. Pray for the young souls that will be exposed to deviant messages. They need Jesus! Pray for the teachers that would have to make career choices, and those that celebrate deviant education of children. They need Jesus too! (In the competition for “wokest school system of all,” Illinois just might be the winner. https://www.frc.org/updatearticle/20210122/woke-broke)

Read Galatians 5:19-24

BE A FORCE FOR GOOD!

Good vs. Evil, Jedi vs. Darkside, Spirit vs Flesh… there is a battle of good and evil.

Evil, the darkside

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  Galatians 5:19-21

Good, the Jedi

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Galatians 5:22-24

The Battle

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,  Ephesians 6:10-18

Practical application: Confronting the Mob

How would you respond if confronted by the mob demanding compliance and submission? [BLM Mob https://youtu.be/dSnTTND0UcM ]

The dark side, the mob

They may want justice, but their actions and the justice they demand are not biblical Godly actions and demands for justice. This example is full of…

Enmity: hatred or ill will.

Strife: bitter sometimes violent conflict or dissension.

Jealousy: envious, hostile to those with perceived advantage.

Fits of anger…

The good, the Gospel

How should a disciple of Jesus Christ and witness to the Kingdom of God respond?

Love: Love them. Do not bend to the will of the wicked. Protect innocent life from violence. But understand that they are image bearers of God that have been taken captive by godlessness, so love them.

Peace and Self Control: Do not fear or be incited to anger or strife.

Faithfulness: Share God’s truth and grace with them.

“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!””
Romans 10:14-15 ESV
https://www.bible.com/59/rom.10.14-15.esv

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to?

Hear this! If you desire true reconciliation and justice.

There is a God that created the heavens and the earth, and we are not Him.

He created mankind, the one human race, in His image, male and female He created them.

God determines what is true, good, and just.

We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, we are liars, thieves, fornicators, adulterers, and blasphemers, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.

Our sin has created division and racism.

But God is merciful and loving.

Jesus Christ is God the only begotten Son and He was punished and died upon the cross for our sins.

He was buried and three days later rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.

We need only confess and repent of our sins, believe Jesus is lord and savior, and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!

“The blood of Christ is sufficient to reconcile us. It is the only thing that can reconcile us. We are one in Christ.”
Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia in “By What Standard? God’s World… God’s Rules”

Household Prayer 1/12/21


2018 Ark Encounter

Hey brothers, this week as CC is back in 2nd semester let’s spend some time praying for our wives and all the homeschooling moms in our community. Pray that they never diminish the eternal kingdom building role they are playing. Pray that they have energy, peace, and wisdom. Encourage them with these words…

“If you are a mother, don’t ever say, “I am just a housewife, I’m just a mom.” As a mother, you are shaping and instructing the children God has entrusted to you. You are raising them to know and serve God. You are training the next generation of Christian leaders. Moreover, you have a ministry to other mothers… You have much more influence for Christ than you probably realize. If you make yourself available to him, you will be like Nehemiah, doing a great work.”

Biblical, Educational, Constitutional, and Action Oriented Organizations

  1. Alternative communications. Private, not scanned by big tech and used to market ads or re-educate you.
  2. Ministry, education, news and political organizations to follow. Use email lists and alternative platforms to ensure you get updates that might be censored on “big tech” and mainstream media. 
  3. Organizations, leaders, and movements to follow to be informed, educated, and potentially organize and take action.

They may not always meet the “big tech” user standards, but they will better meet free speech, truth, justice, and liberty standards.

Also, this isn’t to abandon “big tech.” Stay and engage there. But this is to make sure you aren’t having your preferred media censored and having algorithms decide what you should see to re-orient your thinking toward approved thinking.

Also, making the list does not imply full endorsement. I may generally agree and think it’s worthy without giving 100% blind support.

Household Prayer 12/02/2020



Will we choose Liberty or “become prey of that more desolating and more cruel spoiler than war, pestilence, or famine – absolute rule and endless extortion… our parent state will think us worthy of her, when she sees that with her liberty we inherit her rigid resolution of maintaining it against all invaders. Let us give her reason to pride herself in the relationship.”

Speech in General Congress of America 1775, unknown, “The Christian life and character of the civil institutions of the United States” Benjamin F. Morris. 2007,1864

Brothers, this week I want to pray for America. We do not have a President Elect yet. However, there is a lot of media mis-information and censorship. The election matters to Christians and in particular Christian homeschoolers. I sat in on the Family Research Council prayer tonight (https://prayvotestand.org) and it was really powerful. I pray God’s will be done. I pray that if there is corruption lying and cheating in this election that God would reveal it, and that He would bring the wrong doers to justice. Truth and justice, God, is what we desire. God, may the events of this year awaken the church to renewed faith, discipleship, and evangelism.

Read 2 Samuel 23 and Psalm 82

“The God of Israel has spoken; the Rock of Israel has said to me: When one rules justly over men, ruling in the fear of God, he dawns on them like the morning light, like the sun shining forth on a cloudless morning, like rain that makes grass to sprout from the earth.”

2 Samuel‬ ‭23:3-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/2sa.23.3-4.esv

“God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:

“How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”

Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!”

Psalm‬ ‭82:1-8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Reform the Church and ReEnchant the World with God’s Truth and Grace!

Enchant (latin: encantio): to speak meaning into.

If the church is not reenchanting this fallen world with God’s truth and grace, then it is being disenchanted with the lies of Satan!

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
Romans 10:14-15

Prayer, public witness of the church, and proclaiming God’s truth and grace.

Why are we here (in this sin fallen world)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To make disciples of all nations.
Matthew 28:18-20

Why are we here (on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To love the captive soul and to preach the good news!
Romans 10:14-15

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to? 
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
We humans are created in His image.
We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.
But God is merciful and loving. 
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!
Romans 3:10-18, 23
1 Corinthians 15:3-8
John 3:16-21
Ephesians 2:1-10

Household Prayer 11/24/2020




Brothers, I’m praying this week for us fathers. In our family’s urban and SafeFamilies ministry activities over the years we have seen the devastation of fatherlessness in our community. A recent communication from the youth ministry at my church has me worried it’s happening in the church too! I pray we fathers of our CC community see our duty and responsibility to instruct, discipline, and disciple our children. I pray for wisdom, zeal, and joy for the work. God has ordained the family for this purpose, we should not neglect it and depend on the church to do it for us. Fathers, we will stand in judgement for this role, not youth pastors. I pray for us and for the men of God’s church. I pray for awakening, for revival, for zeal, and for joy among the fathers of the church in this regard.

Read Psalm 78, Psalm 127, Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:6-7, and ‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:4

Every day [faithful members of the church] are bombarded with false claims [“by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes” (Ephesians 4:14)] Without a firm conviction in God’s Word, they face these challenges unprepared. [The Saints] need the best training our churches can offer from shepherds [“and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:11,12) so that fathers are equipped to “bring up their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4)]

“We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which – he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, – that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and – tell them to their children, – so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments; and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.”
