Christian and secular education


Robert Lewis Dabney (1820-198) was arguably one of the greatest 19th century theologians.

Gospel education

Hobart High School Est 1913Hobart High School, est 1913 (cited here). 

Education is about who is sovereign; God or man. It cannot occur within an ethical vacuum (1 Cor. 10:31). Truth is not an abstraction; it is a person, the God-man Jesus.

An education that denies the Lordship of Jesus over any area of faith and life is simply idolatrous (Deut. 6:4-15, Prov. 1:7, Matt. 28:18-20) and scandalous. This should strike godly fear into all Christian fathers.
