Here’s a Way to Change the World and Get Paid for It

A good friend of mine owns numerous pre-schools that actually educate children. Children learn to read before they enter the first grade. They are taught a moral worldview based on God’s Word. Their young lives are transformed by the experience.

I have been following Grace Community Schools for more than 20 years. If you or your children would like to be involved in changing the world, here’s a great place to start by working with Grace Community School either through employment or running your own school. The upcoming conference, where I will be one of the speakers, explains what’s involved in being FREE (including lodging and meals):

Grace Community School has been operating successful Christian schools in Southwest Florida for more than thirty years, and their Apprenticeship Program provides on-the-job training and assistance in obtaining credentials for those wanting to start and/or operate Christian schools. Apprentices will learn to run successful and profitable Christian schools with a mind towards financial independence. This is an apprenticeship program, NOT an unpaid internship.

Apprentices receive:

• Free housing (if needed)

• Salary pay (again, this is NOT an unpaid internship!)

• Intensive training in all aspects of operating a successful and profitable Christian school

• Weekly seminary-level theological training at Nicene Covenant Church

• FREE bachelor’s and master’s degree college tuition through Patriot Bible University

If you would like to know more about Grace Community School’s Apprenticeship Program and its upcoming conference, here are the specifics:

The GCS Apprenticeship Program will cover hotel stays and meals for the conference event FREE for attendees. That’s right; this is a free event that includes lodging and meals! Conference-goers will visit Grace Community School and take part in discussions with the speakers and successful Christian school operators. They will learn about Christian apprenticeship and the opportunities available to those seeking a career in early childhood education. The GCS Apprenticeship Program will also be giving away books and materials about their program and Christian education. You’ll explore the role of preschools in Christian reconstruction and the amazing practical alternative to traditional college that is the Grace Community School Apprenticeship Program.

If you want to control the world, control the education of the children. The sooner a government can educate children, the sooner it can control them. Education is not neutral. It’s always accompanied by a worldview rooted in some ideology. Today’s ideology is materialistic, evolutionary, and morally ungrounded.

As Alexander Pope wrote, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”

When parents turned their children over to the State to be educated, it turned them over to an agency of control. Is it any wonder that there was so much opposition to Betsy DeVos, the new Secretary of Education? The near monopoly of government education was threatened.

The appeal was “free education.” Nothing is free. Everything costs something. What price are parents really paying for free public (government) school education?

Government (public) schools today have outlawed Christianity and prayer and are normalizing and mainstreaming homosexuality and gender fluidity and having parents who oppose such tyranny to pay for it.

Since the early 1960s when prayer and Bible reading were outlawed by the Supreme Court, Christians have been trying to fix the public schools. More than 50 years later, what’s been accomplished? Atheism is the real religion of the government schools. Where children used to be taught that they were created in the image of God and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, today there is no foundational basis for what makes humans special. In addition, instead of our rights coming from God, they now come from government.

What the government gives, it can easily be taken away.
