God Allowed In Schools?

 

A picture of the t-shirt below has been making the rounds on social media sites.

A listener asked Brant his thoughts.

Here's his take on it.

I'm a teacher at a public elementary school. Every morning we say the national pledge with the words "one nation under God" and the Texas pledge which includes "Texas, one state under God". After those pledges, we have a moment of silence. Childen and teachers are free to begin their day with a prayer during that time. Prayers are personal and can be said at anytime during the day. I've never seen or heard of a teacher who saw a student pray before a test or who was blessing his/her food, discourage that action. I've seen students read bibles during recess or class silent reading times. Bibles are just as acceptable in school as any other book.

Aloha,

I am a missionary with Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®.Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization that is dedicated to seeing every child reached with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, discipled and established in a local church.

One  of our major ministries is Good News Club®. Good News Club®  is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship® in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools...yes I said schools and schools all across the US.

Can we really teach the Bible in public schools?

Yes! The Gospel has been taught freely in public schools all over the world for some time.  Now children in the U.S. have that opportunity, too!  In 2001 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School that Good News Clubs can meet in public schools in the United States after school hours on the same terms as other community groups. Children attend Good News Club only with their parents' permission.

What is taught in Good News Club?

Each week an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF is presented. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson's theme.

Each club includes a clear presentation of the Gospel and an opportunity for children to trust Jesus as Savior. Every club also includes strong discipleship training to build character and strengthen moral and spiritual growth. All children are encouraged to attend a local church.

Death, divorce, severe illness, abuse, natural disasters school shootings... children are hurting and wondering, "Why?"

Designed to help children troubled by natural disasters, national crises and personal problems, the Do You Wonder Why? booklet helps children understand the effects of sin, the depths of God's love and how they can know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and friend.

This booklet has been used to minister to children and adults in Japan, Haiti and many states in the U.S. that have experienced natural and man-made disasters.
