The Biblical Theory of Christian Education

Scripture, therefore, has been breathed into by God — so that the fallen yet redeemed man of God may be perfected.   Scripture is given so that the man of God may be equipped thoroughly unto all good works, even as the man and woman of God were equipped thoroughly unto all good works in the state of rectitude.   For they were equipped for their lofty and comprehensive goal of subjecting the whole Earth and the whole Sea and the whole Sky, “thoroughly equipped unto all good works” to the glory of God.

Therefore the goal of all Christian Education can only be to do all of these things according to our individual special gifts — to be always abounding in the work of the Lord.  Yes, even in our daily, ordinary, so-called secular work for the Lord.   For our ordinary work that we do each day in our office or in our kitchen, is still work in the Lord’s world.   It should therefore be done to His glory, “for as much as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”(19)
