5 Myths of Education
Myth One

My child is not Influenced Spiritually by Attending a Secular School



Many believe that as long as a secular school does not address spiritual issues it remains a neutral environment. This is not true though. Even if there is no overt antagonism against Christianity, when Biblical teaching is omitted from a child’s schooling, he or she learns through practice and modeling that it is not important to have God central to how we think. If God is not central to how we think, He will not be central to how we live either.


Consider the following instructive words from scripture:


“Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.” Deuteronomy 11:8

“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:2


Both of these passages encourage us to immerse ourselves and our children in biblical truth throughout the day and in the midst of all of our various activities. In contrast, in an attempt to create a neutral environment where students from a variety of spiritual or religious backgrounds can co-exist, the secular school has no choice but to suppress this kind of integrated inclusion of biblical truths. Plumstead Christian School, in contrast, works hard to provide excellent academics within a caring environment where students are taught to think biblically, serve effectively, and lead Christ-centered lives. We encourage biblical literacy through concentrated academic Bible classes at every grade level, and we worship together in weekly chapels. We also intentionally weave spiritual discussions and true biblical integration into every subject and every co-curricular activity. God and the Bible are central to how we think, and if God is central to how we think, He will be central to how we live.
