Education and the Kingdom
During most of its history the church has been the educator of Christendom. Before the church owned a building, which was for a couple of centuries since they were an underground movement, they were teaching children in the homes where the home churches met. The idea that the church does not belong in education is a very modern idea, and yet in the fifties when I first started to speak about the necessity for Christian schools and groups like this, I would have ministers stand up and denounce me for perverting the gospel, and taking people away from the basic need for evangelism! Thank God we have grown beyond that stage now.
