Education (part 33)
Some Christian schools see themselves as a little sister of the government schools—not really grown up yet. So, hat in hand, they ask some governmentapproved agency to come in and accredit its program. But if the government's seal of approval were all that valuable, there would not be a market for private Christian schools in the first place. Nevertheless, because there is no biblical vision at many of these schools, success is consequently measured by money, enrollment, buildings, basketball programs, and other things not essential for true education. Most of these things are blessings. Nevertheless, they are not replacements for a distinctively Christian education.
