All education is in terms of a purpose and a program for freedom. The question is, who defines freedom, and to what end? Educational programs will either be in terms of the purposes of God and his creative and redemptive work in creation, or they will be in terms of an alien purpose derived from the god of this world and his falsehoods.
A neutral education is philosophically, theologically, and functionally impossible; the very attempt to generate such an approach is unfaithful to the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Paul makes clear that teaching is meant to bring transformation and is agonizing work.
Paul's example of pastoral teaching is evangelical and spiritual.
The radical changes taking place in society over the past few decades should serve as a warning to Christians to reconsider the pervasive influence of the education system and the need for Christ-centered teaching, schools, and seminaries.
