What will U.S. be like if only God-less education is okay?

With an Ohio company refusing to hire a graduate simply because he was home schooled, a leading creation apologist warns that the culture is becoming more secularized because public schools are "churches of atheism."

NiSource, an energy company of Ohio, has announced that it will not hire home-schooled students, preferring public school graduates instead. But as Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis points out, public schools do not allow God, the Bible, prayer or creation because they claim they want to remain neutral.

Ham, Ken (Answers in Genesis)"The Bible teaches very clearly you're either for Christ or you're against Him (Matthew 12:30). There's no neutrality; there's no in-between," Ham cites. "By secular, that means it has nothing to do with God. In fact, in the biology textbooks we read that students are taught that the hull of reality, the universe [and] life are to be explained by natural processes, and the supernatural is not allowed in science."

So the apologist encourages parents become aware of the effect secular teaching is having on their children's spirituality.

"Two-thirds of young people are leaving the church by the time they reach college age," he reports. "And if that continues, where is America going to be in the future? It'll be where England is today, where two-thirds of teenagers don't even believe in God."

Ham and the Home School Legal Defense Association are also speaking out against Common Core and the devastating consequences its secular approach to teaching will have on students' faith.
