  2. 5 Sometimes Wrongheaded Reasons to Home school
  3. The 10 Reasons Why We Home School
  4. Who Is A Person?
  5. What is the Purpose of Schooling

The Once And Future Church

Churches (and what I mean by this is the local manifestation of the Universal Church but I’ll refer to them for now on as assemblies) have lost focus of the Gospel.No, I don’t mean that they don’t know what it is or that they’re preaching it or that they even support it: but it has become (to all these assemblies) the entrance into Salvation and that’s it. It becomes a talking point on how one assembly is Closer To It than the other or a banner which is waved: but it has been receded from being the very grounds on which the entire Church stands.
