Show Highlights

2:30 - Science Glorifies God

3:13 - The Bible is true from the beginning

3:21 - The most important thing in education is to inculcate a Christian worldview

3:40 - The most important thing you can teach a child is to understand the Bible, to have respect for it and to obey God, to repent of your sins and trust in Christ as Lord and Savior. It is not an academic game for me. Souls are on the line. 

4:35 - What is the biblical purpose of education? 

4:48 - Education is supposed to be training people to think in a way that is consistent with God's character and act in a way that is consistent with God's character.

6:00 - Learning a trade or a skill is one of the ways we learn to think like God. 

6:30 - In public schools, students are taught false information - information that is contrary to God's Words.

7:21 - We are NOT to embrace educational systems that are contrary to God's Word. 

7:40 - Luke 6:41 says the pupil will be like the teacher. 

8:00 - Master Books' mission is ink on paper to touch eternity. We work diligently to weave the gospel and the realities of God in every subject. 

8:10 - Know the risks of having a "Chrisitan" homeschool curriculum that does not honor God as He truly is. 

8:50 - All knowledge stems from God. (Colossians 2:3 - All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are deposited in Christ.  Proverbs 1:7 -the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.)

9:18 - Public schools teach that God is irrelevant to knowledge.

9:48 - Every subject should be rooted in the character of God.

10:10 - From a biblical perspective, history is the unveiling of God's plan to save people unto Himself.

10:24 - God has built beauty into math. Math is the way God thinks about numbers. This is revealed in Dr. Lisle's book: Fractals.

11:25 - It is important to get a good curriculum because it also serves as a teacher. Make sure you get a good, God-honoring curriculum.

12:20 - Most students who graduate from a public school, leave with a secular worldview because the curriculum was secular and the majority of the students were also.

13:00 - Master Books provides the tools in the form of curriculum options to help homeschool families build a biblical worldview.

13:15 - Parents using Master Books homeschool curriculum are reporting that they are learning more about God as they teach. They enjoy learning about God together with their children.

13:50 - Imagine seeing God in every subject, in every year of your education.

14:20 - Parents work as a partner with Master Books homeschool curriculum in the mission of ink on paper to touch eternity.

14:45 - Logic is used to help build a biblical worldview and defend the Christian faith. Dr. Jason Lisle is the author of Introduction to Logic which is published by Master Books. 

15:45 - Logic is how to use your mind properly

16:00 - John Dewey wanted American students to be secular. He wanted students away from their families that might teach Christianity and have them accept whatever the state says.

16:30 - God never gave the state authority to educate children. That is something that He gives to parents. Parents can delegate but only to a godly teacher - someone who is going to train them up in the fear of the Lord. 

17:00 - Introduction to Logic by Dr. Jason Lisle is unique because it is thoroughly integrated into the Christian worldview which isn't seen in other curriculum. 

17:14 - Logic is rooted int he nature of God. Students will recognize that they can either be rational and be a Christian or be a non-Chrisitan and be irrational. 

17:40 - Rejection of Christianity is utterly irrational because laws of logics are rooted in the character of God.

18:15 - Over half of Introduction to Logic addresses the fallacies - identifying errors in reasoning which is a very valuable skill.

18:35 - Arguments against Christianity always have an error in reasoning in them.

19:09 - Next to the Scriptures, logic is the most important thing that can be taught.

19:25 - Logic is learning to think in a way that is more godly. It is training your mind in a way that is consistent with God's mind.

21:25 - The smarter way to homeschool is to homeschool your children to love and fear the Lord. 

22:50 - Lay up your treasure in heaven where it lasts forever. One of the best gifts you can give your children is a godly education where they:

  • learn to think rightly to the glory of God
  • learn to love Him
  • learn to love His Word and study it
  •  learn to think and behave consistent with God's character
