Detailed Description

That Christian parent ought to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord is not a fact disputed by very many Christian people. However, defining what that means when applied to the education of our little ones is a subject of intense controversy. Being committed to a decidedly Christian worldview, the Southern California Center for Christian Studies proudly presents our 2005 summer conference, seeking to answer the question, Just what does it mean to give our children a truly Christian education?
We may preach with all the fervor of a reformer and yet succeed only in winning a straggler here and there, if we permit the whole collective thought of the nation or of the world to be controlled by ideas which, by the resistless force of logic, prevent Christianity from being regarded as anything more than a harmless delusion. Under such circumstances what God desires us to do is to destroy the obstacle at its root…. What is today a matter of academic speculation begins tomorrow to move armies and pull down empires.… A revival of the Christian religion will deliver mankind from its present bondage, and will bring liberty to mankind. Such a revival will not be the work of man, but the work of the Spirit of God. But one of the means which the Spirit will use is an awakening of the intellect. -J Gresham Machen
