No Child Left Behind

In these days of reaction to the idea that Christian kids aren't growing up Christian, thoughtful parents of very young children are in a strategic position to change that for the next generation. The most influential thing you can do? Raise your own children to have a Biblical worldview.

Consider the words of Dr. J. Vernon McGee on this subject, probably spoken a generation ago:

"What do you expect, my friends, when you send your children to these worldly institutions and they come home thoroughly brain-washed? Why do you say, "My, how could he do that when he was brought up in a Christian home?" The problem is that he was not actually raised in a Christian home. The parents of many young people may be lovely Christian people but they did not really train their children in Christian precepts and values. They were so anxious and ambitious for them to get on in the world that they lost them."

And, yes:

Wanting the "best" of the world for their children is the most subtle temptation that can come to Christian parents.
Have any of you read pollster George Barna's Raising Spiritual Champions ?

Raising Spiritual Champions was really an "ah-ha" moment for me.
