What’s one of the most important subjects you can teach your children? The Pillar Foundation’s Michael Cordner answers this question on today’s Home School Heartbeat, with Michael Farris.
My guest again today is Mike Cordner of the Pillar Foundation in St. Louis, Missouri. Mike, you teach a Christian worldview course for homeschool high school students in the St. Louis area, please tell us why you think it’s important for young people to study a Christian worldview.
We have been called as Christians to impact our culture for Christ. Traditionally, America was founded by people who were very much involved in the founding of our nation. They provided the impetus and the fundamentals upon which our nation was based. This has changed a lot now as the Christians have moved, over the last hundred years or so, have moved out of the public arena. It has been filled by people who know not God and fear not God and we are suffering some of the consequences of that. But I think the Lord calls us to impact our culture and in order to impact it, we have to understand our culture. And so that involves understanding what the Christian worldview is about particularly as it relates to the application of scriptural principles, to civil government and we also need to understand the philosophies of the worldviews that are supplanting the Christian worldview.
Mike, thank you for being on our program and I hope that more families are inspired to
teach their kids according to a Christian worldview. Thank you.
