Why A Christian Education?

In September of 2003 Glory to God Christian High School will open in Liberty, NY. Considering the high cost of education why should any parent consider paying twice in order for their child to get a Christian education? There are a number of Biblical reasons: (1) Education should be God centered and Bible centered. (Ephesians. 6:4) "And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger; but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." (2) Education should be positive and truthful. (Proverbs 22:6) “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (3) Peer pressure should be positive and Christ-like. (Proverbs 13:20) “He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” (1 Corinthians 15:33) “Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals." (4) The teacher’s life may speak louder than the lesson.  (Luke 6:40) "A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.”  (5) True wisdom is from God. (Psalm 111:10) “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; ...” (Proverbs 9:10) “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”  (Col. 2:2-3)  “... Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (6) The Bible says Christians are to be the "light and salt of the earth". (Matthew 5:13-14)   "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how will it be made salty again? It is good for nothing anymore, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.  "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”

Perhaps the sacrifice of educating a child in a Christian school is great but "How much is a soul worth?" What if the Bible is true?
