Stewardship, Discipleship and
Bible & Wisdom principles to our public school
children under our 1st Amendment rights.
Solomon said ".. wisdom is a defense, and money is
a defense: but the excellency of
knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it."
(Eccl 7:12 , KJV)
And "Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten
mighty men which are in the
city." (Eccl 7:19 ,
IX. Stand Up For Your Children's Faith, / Steward /ship,
Discipleship and Discipline with resources.
believers acknowledge God, believers have a
Relationship and a Unity with one another. And
because he created us in his image we
share one characteristic of His image which is the exercise of free
Because man can choose, but was born in ignorance; it is imperative
that man (minors) have
sufficient information to make an informed choice.
Hence God gave us His book that is
a revelation of Himself for the purpose of growing a relationship with
him. He thinks
this is important; and our educational culture used to think so
too. His book
promotes relationships; both with our Creator and with each
other. This focus should
be taught to our children under our stewardship responsibilities
because we are responsible for
protecting them from anti-family, anti-religion and anti-god policies
and programs of rebellion
against Truth. It is appalling that public schools
are allowed to promote these
things to minors! It wasn't always this way.
incredible feature of the Bible beside its Truth is
that it covers topics that we are dealing with
TODAY. It is very current.
The Bible tells us that this kind of education is not
new. Moses was educated in the
Egyptian ways including idolatry and astrology etc.; but
his mother taught him about
God at home as a child. Moses
would not have been Moses without his mother's
religious teachings. This example of family
stewardship demands that we do no less.
- What is stewardship?
- Strong's Greek Concordance NT #3622
says: from 3256; administration
a household or estate); spec. (religious) "economy":--
- The New
- To say it in other terms; stewardship is nothing more
Stewardship is maintenance on something that is valuable and worth
keeping in good working
order. There was an astute oil commercial where an auto
mechanic said; "You can pay
me now or you can pay me later." The meaning was that if you
didn't want to pay him
$20 once or twice a year for an oil change than you can pay him $2000
for a new engine or engine
overhaul. Obviously, a little stewardship of the children's
faith, right now, is
better than an untimely and very expensive overhaul in the future.
- Who knows if we will be able to afford it in the
future? What kinds of
depravation and inconveniences shall we have to endure during the
overhaul? What then
is the final cost?
- What is discipline?
Greek Concordance OT #4148 says: from
prop. chastisement; fig. reproof,
warning or instruction;
restraint:-- bond, chastening ([eth]),
chastisement, check, correction, discipline,
doctrine, instruction, rebuke.
- Webster's defines
discipline as: "1. Teaching;
instruction. 2. That which is taught to
pupils. 3. Training which
corrects, molds, strengthens, or perfects."
- What is
Greek Concordance NT #3101 is the word disciple
; from 3129; a learner, i.e. pupil:--
- Webster's defines
discipleship as "An adherent of a school, as in
art or philosophy."
three items are interrelated. Stewardship or
maintenance of the families faith depends on the parents' disciplining
and disciple-ing the
children's faith. They can receive help, support
and instruction from the
church. The majority of public schools and teachers
use to help and support the ideals
of discipline and discipleship; however, now the opposite is
true. Is this why
parents are concerned about the school's reversal?
duty of parents of faith is to see that their
children are made aware of the spiritual world and that they will be
held responsible for their
actions. The point is
that the schools are a failure because it
denies God in all of the above and wastes the time, energy and
resources of the children when
they need it the most. For some parents and citizens this is
