Christianity and Education

  • To be a Christian is to be committed to a certain group of beliefs. Some of these areas of belief are very clear among us. There are other areas where we need more clarity as to the correct position that should be taken. The concept of education and its relationship to Christianity is one of those facets of life and thought where more clarity is needed.
  • There is hardly a more important area of life than that related to the total scope of education. We begin to learn almost at birth, if not before, and the process is continuous throughout life.
  • The thought before us here, however, has to do with education in the more formal sense. How are we to integrate education with faith?
