Even in these days of chaos, Christ who sits on the throne of glory is "upholding all things by the word of His power." None of the events we see around us take Him by surprise. They are all part of His plan.

Scripture prescribes three steps in the kind of Gospel witness the Lord will use.
If you knew that your fellow Christians in a certain city were about to experience sudden physical and economic disaster, even loss of life, and you were going to write a letter to them, what would you say?
Christian parents across the United States and in other countries who have successfully homeschooled come from all sorts of cultural and educational backgrounds. Some of them, the world (and even many in the church) would say, could never do it successfully. But by God's grace they have.

For Christian parents to not take personal responsibility for educating their children is to barter away their souls.
