What is a good catechism?

What is a Good Catechism? You've probably heard it said that there are no bad questions. Well... that's not exactly true. There are bad questions, and one of them is, "What is a good catechism?" Actually, it is not as much of a bad question as it is an inadequate, incomplete one. Asking "what is a good confession" is a bit like asking "what is a good bait?" Every good fisherman knows that a bait is only as good as its ability to attract the fish we're pursuing. In the same way, a catechism is only as ...

Question of the Month: April 2011

"How does the doctrine of the Sufficiency of Scripture mesh with Paul's acknowledgment of disputable matters (Romans 14:1) and Jesus promise that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth (John 16:12-15)? To give specific application to some of the issues you frequently address: Is it possible that God has led, and will lead, some parents (based on a myriad of factors that only God can truly know, judge, and specifically address) to send their child to the local public school? Is it possible that the Holy Spirit actually does call some men into Youth Ministry ...

Govt. Education & the The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America

If you think government education is ‘benign’, think again.  Our school systems are insidious places .  There is no such thing as morally neutral, or theologically neutral education.  All education is discipleship, and every educator is a discipler.  Moreover, no matter where you live, and no matter how many “Christian” teachers you have in your school, they don’t write or control the curriculum.  The people calling the shots are people like Charlotte Iserbyt.  Listening to her is like watching a Sci-Fi movie.  If you don’t believe what she’s saying, ask a seasoned Christian teacher with a well-grounded biblical ...

The Yellow Prison Bus and the Future of American Healthcare (Reprint)

This is a piece originally published on August 29th of last year, but it seems appropriate to publish it again in light of recent events (especially since I’m up against a publishing deadline and don’t have much time to blog right now).  Conservatives are up-in-arms over the Democratic healthcare scheme.  From town hall meetings, to talk radio, to the internet, the voice of the people is being heard.  However, I am not at all convinced that the voice of the people will ultimately make a difference in the long run.  My pessimism has less to do with the ...

More from the “Our School Has Christian Teachers” File

As I continue to post The Continuing Collapse each month on this blog, there is a steady stream of public school defenders who insist that, although TCC has been finding and publishing evidence of widespread corruption, under-achievement, radical Gramscian marxism, violence, fraud and more in the American education establishment from coast-to-coast, this has no impact on these people’s educational choice because (altogether now) “their schools are different!”  Of course, the main difference is the presence of Christian teachers. Of course any attempt to point out the lack of biblical worldview of most professing Christians in America, the socialist/neo-marxist ...

The Continuing Collapse: January 2010 Special Report

One of the most common objections to our criticism of the government education system is the idea that “some people don’t have a choice” since they “can’t afford” to do anything other than ship their children off to the local government school.  Well, this news bulletin should put that nonsense to rest.  If a family is truly committed to keeping their children out of the clutches of the immoral, unsafe, anti-Christian government schools, they’ll do whatever it takes.  I don’t say that because I take people’s hardships lightly; I say it because I’ve seen ...

Daddy’s Little Girl (January ’10 Edition)

“I REALIZE YOU’RE JUST PARROTING WHAT YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT” By Jasmine Baucham   I'm going to be completely honest here:   Some of us have a huge bias when it comes to arguments about education.   You know the kids I'm talking about.   They've been educated in an echo chamber, a place where the curriculum is a unified effort to teach them one way to think.   They learn to view the world through a single lens: the worldview that they're being taught.   They don't live in the real world.   They've told what to think and ...
