Did you know that there is no neutral worldview in education? Everything is coming to our children from a specific worldview perspective. So, the importance of worldview cannot be underestimated. If you’re a Christian homeschooler like I am, then you’ll be encouraged by the BJU Press Foundations Summit workshop about worldview. This episode will give the highlights of that talk.

What is Worldview
I recently attended the BJU Press Foundations Summit in Greenville, SC. While we were there, we were challenged with workshops about Christian worldview and homeschooling. This podcast episode gives some highlights from one of the fabulous sessions presented at the summit. It’s an important topic for Christian homeschool parents to consider.
Worldview is the lens by which we interpret the world. You will never use neutral curriculum in your homeschool. A specific worldview, whether it is Christian or secular, always undergirds every subject.
Many times, challenges to a Christian worldview in secular higher education is subtle. So, we need to disciple our kids while we still can so that they can understand the challenges.
Biblical discipleship can’t just be “tacked on” as a compartmentalized subject in our homeschool. Worldview shapes the way we teach science, math, history, literature, music, art, and even English and grammar!
We don’t just want our kids to regurgitate facts. We need to help them understand why they believe certain things are true. Using God’s story of the world (Creation, Fall, Redemption) will help our kids rightly interpret the world.
Definitely take time to watch Dr. Renton Rathbun’s excellent presentation at the BJU Press Foundations Summit. You can find it on the BJU Press Facebook page.
