Take Tim Challies To School Day
Most of us have heard some version of the saying: “There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.” While the spirit of the phrase seems virtuous enough at a passing glance, it’s important for us to understand that, in certain contexts, there are indeed stupid questions, and that some of those questions are dangerously stupid […]
Salt, Light, & Child Sacrifice To Drag Queens
As we roll into August, two sad trends are likely to continue: 1. Public schools will continue to deny Christ as Lord while embracing the satanic model of education first advocated in Genesis 3, discipling the young accordingly, and 2. Millions of professing Christian parents will continue to feed their precious little 4-, 5-, and […]
Salt, Light, & Children’s Education – Prepping For The Fourth Annual Great Education Forum
Who said you can’t curse the darkness and light a great big glorious candle at the same time? . We can multitask, right? . When it comes to the life-and culture-shaping subject of children’s education, we ought to be able and willing to expose and tear down the educational idols of our age while at […]
What will it take for American pastors to preach the Word of God on children’s education?
One of the most tragi-comedic displays emanating from self-described Christians in America these days is the way that most of them still excuse, defend, enable, and/or encourage the perpetuation of public schools. The willful (and suicidal) idiocy of this situation only grows more cringe-worthy as each near-daily revelation of the evil foundation of public schools […]
10 Real Meanings Of “We Can’t Afford To Homeschool!”
What would you give up in housing, car(s), clothes, vacations, and/or toys in order to get (or keep) your little ones out of the State-run “education” system and secure for them in its place both daily on-site parenting and a Christ-centered approach to the pursuit of knowledge? Would you be willing significantly downgrade your home […]
Okay, so this is too cool not to share…
While you may not have instantly noticed that the wire baskets set sideways on a table in the above picture are actually computer screens, that’s exactly what they are. The two kiddos parked on each side of the table facing a “computer screen” of their own are none other than my daughter Rosie (4) and […]
See you in Appomattox!
It. Is. ON! The third annual Great Education Forum is this weekend at the New Geneva Christian Leadership Academy in Appomattox, Virginia, where I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to make the event’s first presentation. My subject: The Satanic Foundation Of Public Schools (with a focus on Genesis 3). Please pray that this mission will be […]
The Dying Dinosaur Of Centralized Education
Dinosaur media empires are dying. Dinosaur business empires are dying. Dinosaur political empires are dying. But perhaps the most exciting (and important) news on the dino front is that dinosaur models of education are dying, too. By God’s grace and right in the nick o’ time, an age of radical decentralization is beginning to dawn all around us, and while […]
Let’s get the State out of our children’s heads, shall we?
Goliath towers. He thinks big, talks tough, and actually seems to believe in the inevitability of his victory. His gaggle of hangers-on and yes-men cheer him on and bask in the glow of his largeness, toughness, and perceived inevitability. Then he gets popped in just the right place at just the right time and goes down. […]
Repenting Of Our Satanic Approach To Children’s Education
How thoroughly deceived have we become on the subject of education? Do we even notice the satanic foundation of our approach to the pursuit of knowledge? Or has that foundation just become an assumed norm at this point? Maybe even a cherished norm? These are some of the questions we aim to answer in some detail […]
Let’s get together to expose and crush satanic forms of education, shall we?
If education is the acquisition of knowledge, then where we begin with our understanding of knowledge is vital to how we will pursue education. So what is knowledge? More specifically, what is true knowledge? Is the fear of the Lord really “the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7), as Scripture informs us again and again? Or […]
The Simple Reason Christians Must Oppose Public Schools
Jesus Christ is the essential core of children’s education…or He is not. There is no “middle ground” or third option where essential cores are concerned. Either they are essential and core, or they are not. Either Christ is the essential core of the pursuit of knowledge (also known as “education”) where the formation of young, […]
“Can We Please Stop Rearranging Deckchairs On the Public School Titanic?” – The Hell Razer Report Podcast
Do we want disciples of the State or disciples of Christ? Pick one. Choose this day whom you will serve…and to whom you will give over your children for mind-sculpting and worldview training. In this week’s episode of The Hell Razer Report we take a look at a popular saying regularly used by lazy American professing […]
#NeverPublicSchools actually accomplishes what #BoycottTarget and #NeverTrump never will.
Things seem to be getting wackier by the minute ’round here these days in ‘Merica, and while that might sometimes seem scary, what we need to see and appreciate in this increasingly surreal time is the incredible clarity that we are being given as the bubble world fiction in which American Christians have lived for […]
Education, worldview wars, and the lions who’ve come before us.
A true Christian education and worldview centers on the fact that good things are happening and ultimate victory is assured. It assumes and builds itself upon on the inevitable victory of the King of Creation over every realm of His creation in accordance with His unstoppable, unbreakable Word and Gospel-fueled Great Commission. It’s in this context that even […]
How the religion of American Statism will use the religion of Islam to attack Christian home education.
If there’s one thing a false god can’t stand, it’s competition. In this, false gods predictably aim to be something like one true God they strive to displace. The one true God despises these pretenders and would-be competitors, knowing that they can only lead those who follow them into darkness and death, which is why He has […]
Do you have two hours a day to focus on your children?
Do you have two hours a day to focus on your children? If so, you can homeschool. That was the short and very sweet point made by a kind Christian woman who called into Stand Up for the Truth on Monday where I was the guest on that day’s show. The subject of the broadcast was children’s […]
How does the Gospel define children’s education? (Radio interview on the “Stand Up for the Truth” program.)
I’m quite happy and thankful to report that I had an awesome, cool, and productive time with the crew at Stand Up for the Truth on Monday’s show, where the topic of the day was…*drumroll*…children’s education from a Gospel-centered perspective. Woohoo! I was on for about the first 45 minutes or so and man, did we get […]
Anti-Homeschool Inquisitors Seek Immunity from Law
Last week in America’s Fear and Loathing of Christian Homeschoolers, we highlighted an article by American Vision’s Dr. Joel McDurmon in which he methodically chronicled the lies driving a ridiculously contrived “case” against a homeschooling family in Texas. McDurmon has recently followed up with a very important article alerting homeschoolers as to some serious freedom-threatening maneuvers being […]
America’s Fear and Loathing of Christian Homeschoolers
Just in case anyone out there had forgotten how much this culture and its most thoroughly programmed drones despise the concept and practice of Christian homeschooling, the Lord has graciously provided us with yet another reminder. This time it comes in the form of a Texas homeschooling family who is being savaged by everyone […]
“On Education: Thoughts on Christ as the essential core of children’s education” book released.
The On Education: Thoughts on Christ as the essential core of children’s education book is now available in print and eBook/Kindle formats. This is a compilation book featuring articles from Fire Breathing Christian that center on the vital life- and culture-shaping subject of children’s education. One of the great benefits of this sort of book is that […]
Taking Children’s Education and Video Games Captive to Christ (Interview with Colin Gunn of “The Colin Gunn Show”)
“Christian, Liberty and Scottish Perspectives” With a tagline like that, you know something supercool is coming. That’s exactly what you get with Colin Gunn, the creative force behind some of the finest Christian worldview based documentaries that have ever been made (see: IndoctriNation:Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America and Wait Till It’s Free). Colin also […]
Statism 101: State-run “education” makes a State-dependent population.
It’s August in America – that time of year when tens of millions of professing Christians in the “land of the free” and the home of the NSA happily send their precious little children off to the State for State-run, pro-State, explicitly anti-Christian “education” in direct violation of the crystal clear Word of God. It […]
Our Inevitable Victory Over Satanic “Education”
These days in America, it’s often professing Christians who seem to least believe that Christ the King actually owns and defines all of reality (see: Colossians 1:16). After generations of immersion in a man-centered, emotion-driven, and culturally disengaged religious worldview masquerading as Christianity, we’ve largely come to expect the victory of Christ’s enemies all around us here on His […]
“Christian leaders” STILL encourage Christians to keep feeding their children to the beast of anti-Christian/State-run “education”.
There comes a point at which the warm handshakes, friendly smiles, and killer pot-lucks just can’t cover things up anymore. There comes a point at which even the most naïve and immature Christian begins to sense through the Spirit of God within them that something is way off. Something isn’t right. Something stinks. For year after year, […]
Franklin Graham’s Incoherent “Fight” Against the Homosexual Agenda
One of the least surprising things in all of God’s creation seems to be the thing that’s most surprising to the vast majority of “American conservative Christians” who simply cannot believe how fast the culture is melting down around them, particularly in the realm of sexuality. But really, what could be more predictable than the sexual, […]
Why Statists despise Christian homeschooling (and why Christians shouldn’t feed their children to the State).
By now many of us have heard at least part of the unfolding tale of the Nauglers, a family of 12 in southwestern Kentucky who choose to live an “off the grid” lifestyle of simplicity that includes, among other things, a family Facebook page (kinda funny, right?). One of many articles chronicling the recent arrest of the […]
Have the “We will not obey!” Christian “leaders” repented of their role in bringing us to this hellish condition in the first place?
Have you ever known someone who’s been pursuing a destructive path for a very long time and has been warned by many friends at many times all along the way that what they were doing was wrong, dangerous, and would ultimately lead to serious consequences? We’ve all experienced, witnessed or heard about such situations. You could say that we’ve all been […]
Rosie, Busgetti, and the Beauty of Catechism
In the wake of her successful campaign for Tennessee’s “Yes on 1” (see pic above) and with our beloved Rosebud about to turn two this coming spring, we knew that it was time. Bible memorization and catechism time. Rosie’s shown a lot of promise on the linguistic front as we’ve ramped up to this moment. She’s counting […]
Ten answers to those “What about socialization?” questions from public school advocates.
Evidence of the evils of State-controlled children’s education continues to multiply, amplify and explode all around us, but in a culture still loaded with minds molded on State-run assembly lines, those evils are typically dismissed, ignored, or even spun into virtues. This is the climate into which God has placed His people. Even now in America, […]
The Consequences of Feeding Our Children to the Beast
What if Scripture – what we call “the Bible” – was infinitely more than anything else ever written or read, because it was an actual and accurate revelation of God’s very nature? Of who He is? What if this literary revelation had been lovingly provided by God to His people for the sake of ensuring that they enjoy the […]
Weaponized “Love”: The perversion of Christian love into a weapon of Christian persecution
Ever been called a big, bad meanie for sharing Truth publicly? Ever been called disruptive, divisive, unkind or unloving for taking a clear, public stand on a culturally controversial issue that’s addressed in detail within the pages of Scripture? Have you ever been pressured to be silent after speaking up in such a manner? Have you ever been […]
Publicly proclaiming this truth will get you run out of many churches in America…all in the name of love, unity, and Jesus.
Did you know that reposting or sharing this sort of thing publicly could well end up being a giant step toward you and your family being actively run out of many “good, conservative, Bible-believing Christian churches” in America? Yep, it’s sad but true. But should we really be surprised? We ought to already understand that, as believers who strive by God’s […]

Christ-less “Education”: It’s Pretty Gay
Recent stories on “the horrors of public schools” (and there are always scores and scores of “recent stories” on this subject, aren’t there?) can be hard to stomach. Very hard to stomach, but not because of the particular details contained in any single incarnation of these never-ceasing, ever-increasing, seemingly omnipresent State-controlled “education” horror stories, but because people – […]
