…the battle for mankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity…utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level—preschool, day care center or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new—the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism. “A New Religion for a New Age,” The Humanist, January/February, 1983
Here at Visionary Womanhood, our topic for the month of July is Education vs. Schooling. I hope it will prove to be an encouraging, eye-opening adventure as we explore the differences! We’ll start off with a bang by taking a look at an excerpt taken from the book: Choose You This Day: God’s Instructions on How to Select Leaders by Buddy Hanson.
Wasn’t that a nice summary? I Chronicles 12:32 talks about the men of Issachar “who understood the times and knew what Israel should do”. I hope you’ll join us in our discussion this month as we seek to “understand the times” that we live in and apply God’s Word in all that we do…especially in the education of our most precious treasures…the children.
