Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Legacy - Home Discipleship

I've been a bad blogger lately, the kind that doesn't post anything. I've been getting it into high gear at home to prepare for our newest addition. I thought I'd share this great sermon/talk by Pastor Voddie Baucham whose book, Family Driven Faith, contains principles that can be applied by everyone.

Here he explains Biblical discipleship of children and how that doesn't equate to an hour of Sunday School a week. The numbers show how that isn't getting it. Think about it, we're taking the principles of the world, regimented schooling, which is oh so successful in teaching the three Rs and applying it in less quantity to kids who don't hear His name spoken at home hardly ever. When Sunday School first began, Christians actually criticized it because they said if Christian parents ever depended on it for discipleship training, they would cease studying the Word at home. Boy, I'm glad they weren't right about that, huh? The original purpose of Sunday School was to teach literacy children working in the factories with no time or money for formal school or literate parents. How sad so few people read the Bible today as the drive for literacy was originally to give everyone the opportunity to search the Scriptures for themselves.
