We can’t afford Christian school tuition.
If Christian parents feel they must have a home that is larger than they actually need, new cars every three years, a vacation home, significant travel, weekly dining out, a wardrobe that needs constant replenishment, and retirement accounts that get any leftover dollars, then this myth is not a myth
However, the word to consider here is “priorities.” People always do what is important to them. The question is: are the things that are important to God the same things that are important to His people? Educating children in a Christian way is one of the Bible’s most important messages. A Christian education for our children must be a priority. Choosing to downsize the home, limit entertainment spending, and purchase practical transportation as opposed to luxury automobiles, will make monies available for Christian education.
Granted, there are Christian parents who truly cannot afford to pay Christian school tuition due to situations in their lives that are out of their control (providentially hindered). If this is the case, they must spend a great deal of time and effort to teach Biblical truth to their child daily through various ways such as family devotion time or Bible study. They might also apply for financial assistance at a local Christian school. Other Christian parents have come under conviction that they must remove their child from the non-Christian school, but are unable to make the change because of past decisions that have now buried them under debt. There are resources (such as Crown Financial Ministries or Dave Ramsey) that can help a family take steps that will eventually bring them to a point where they can afford a Christian school if they are willing to be disciplined and make the needed life changes.
STAY TUNED FOR MYTH 3 NEXT WEEK!
