Charlie Liebert’s Credibility to Give Analysis & Advice for “My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?”

Last week I announced the release ofmy latest book “My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?” which isavailable on Amazon as a Kindle download at $3.99 or paperback at $9.99 + shipping.  As a Christian educator, I’ve presented analysis and advice to help Christian parents make the best decisions to educate their children. This week I’ll summarize my experience in education to establish my credibility qualified to help Christian parents.

In 1996, I joined the board of Caldwell Academy, A Classical Christian School founded in Greensboro, NC in 1994. During my time on the board, the school doubled in size, relocated to a new permanent site, and built its first building.  Today Caldwell has three significant buildings and enrollment has grown to over 800 in grades K-5 through 12.  Immediately after I retired in 1994, I began a single proprietorship business called Creation, Dinosaurs and the Flood (CDEF) which hosted educational workshops and seminars for children and adults.  CDEF sold books and videos at these programs.  In 1990 CDEF established a website that answered over 100  Christian Apologetics questions about the Bible and science http://www.sixdaycreation.com. In 2011 the sales business was liquidated, but the site continues today.  In 1997, for two years I worked for Answers in Genesis, Ken Ham’s Biblical Creation ministry leading children’s workshops and adult seminars.  In 1998, I resigned from the Caldwell board toteach Science and Bible for that year. Keeping my interest at Caldwell alive, from 1999 until 2001 I led weekly Grammar science assembly programs. Beginning in 1995 until 2005, I produced an educational one-hour, weekly, public access TV show on Greensboro Community Television (GCTV) using footage shot at my seminars and workshops.  In August 2004 I began teaching business courses at Davidson County Community College (DCCC) in Lexington, North Carolina. I continue teaching today on-line courses.  At DCCC, I won 2 academic prizes for excellence in teaching, including a grant of $3,000.  I began work as an author in 2012.

To summarize in the last 27 years:

1) I’ve helped start and grow a Classical Christian School in Greensboro, NC,

2) Taught science at both the Grammar & Middle (Dialectic) School levels,

3) Led “Origins” seminars and workshops for Answers in Genesis and ministry CDEF.

4) For ten years, I produced an educational weekly TV show.  From local exposure on that show, I became known as the “Creation Guy” and was often recognized as I traveled in the Greensboro area.

5) Led more than 50 programs teaching Christian Apologetics in churches, schools, and civic clubs.

6) Counseled Christian parents and their children in Apologetics to counter the results of the students “loss of faith” when they left home and went to college.

7) Taught Business and general education subjects at Davidson County Community College for the last 14 years

I pray the LORD bless you as you consider your Biblical responsibility to educate your children.

My NEW Book: “My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?” A Christian Educator’s Analysis and Advice

TODAY, I’m announcing my latest book “My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?” available on Amazon as a Kindle download at $3.99 or a paperback at $9.99 + shipping.  As a Christian educator I’ve presented analysis and advice to help Christian parents make the best decisions to educate their children. This difficult decision has eternal consequences so, consider ALL the factors.  This book is an excellent resource to make that decision.

One of the most serious problems Christian parents face in the US today is the potential loss of their children’s faith when they leave home to go to work or attend college.  I’ve had many parents call me: “My son/daughter just came back from a semester or a year away and told me: ‘Mom, Dad I don’t believe in that Jesus stuff anymore.'”  For parents, this is heart-rending.  The first question parents ask me is: “Why?”  Ken Ham and many others have written extensively on this topic, and the answer that comes up most is that the student did not have a firm foundation in WHYthey believed what they believed.  Their education spent little or no time on Christian Apologetics. As early as the 1970s Francis Schaefer saw this problem of the lack of apologetic education for youth.

A Christian parent’s primary responsibility to their children is to educate them in God’s Word. My purpose is to help Christian parents understand the state of education in the US today and help them make the right education choices for their children.  I’ll show the Biblical Mandate to educate your children and give an organized method to implement it.  You know your own family situation so you must choose which option is best for your children’s education.

I have taught at a Community College for more almost 15 years, and I’ve seen many public high school graduates come to start college that:

can only read at a fourth-grade level,

can’t do simple math with things like fractions or percentages,

don’t know how to express themselves in writing,

don’t know how to express themselves in speech,

have a sixth-grade vocabulary,

AND have little to NO critical thinking skills. 

When given a 1000-word essay assignment one student told me: “I’ve NEVER written an essay so, how do I start?” If that’s not enough of public school failure, they almost never have the ability to plan work or manage their time.  Many are overwhelmed by the work assignments from the first day of class.  Many spend one or two semesters taking remedial work in writing, reading and math BEFORE they begin curriculum studies.

Charlie Liebert’s first novel “Yellowstone’s Child” is on Kindle and in Print.

If Yellowstone’s Child, a fictional novel, were a movie, it would be rated “PG.” At about 150, pages it is a GREAT read for teens.  Readers complain that once started they weren’t able to put it down.  There are two underlying messages in Yellowstone’s Child.  First, all my characters are human. None of them is perfect. So, the reader will recognize humankind’s sinful imperfection. It is certain every one of us is NOT infallible. Second, as the plot unfolds, it shows life’s uncertainty and unpredictability. Since, as a Christian, I won’t use sex or violence to attract readers I opt for drama, plot reversals and “the story” within the story to keep the reader’s interest.  One of my first readers complained: “Yellowstone’s Child made me cry five times, twice for sadness, three times for joy.”   It’s that kind of a story!

Yellowstone’s Child’s central theme is personal identity, how one answers the question, “Who am I?”  The story begins when a married couple, Sam and Gloria Graham, chicken farmers from Mississippi, lose their ten-year-old daughter, Sally, to brain cancer.  After her death, they plan to sell their Mississippi farm and to move to Nebraska.  Before selling, to help recover from their daughter’s death; they take a short vacation in February to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.  At the same time, at Yellowstone, three cousins from the Johanson family reunion fall into a river partially fed by hot springs.  Two get right out but the third, Sarah, hits her head and floats away on her back downstream.

The Grahams rescue her and discover she has complete amnesia so, they kidnap her and take back to Mississippi to replace their dead daughter, Sally.  Yellowstone Park Rangers and Sarah’s family search the Boiling, and Yellowstone Rivers but do not recover a body.  Sarah is eventually declared dead.  In Mississippi, the Grahams inherit significant wealth, move to Nebraska, change their identities through a political bribe and move again to Ventura CA as Sam, Gloria, and Sally Johnson.  Sarah, still with complete amnesia, enters an all-girls private school that specializes in preparing girls for careers in movies and TV.  She starts in 6th grade at Ventura Private School for Girls and graduates seven years later.  During each school year, 6th through 12th, another secret about her identity develops that has to be kept by her parents.  After graduating from VPSG, she earns a BA in Music, Theater, and Dance from Cal State.  She obtains a starring role in the new TV series DETECTIVES LIVE as Detective Elaine Scott.  About to finish her Masters, she has an auto accident on her way home, bumps her head and suddenly vivid memories of her life before she was ten return.  She confronts her “parents,” and they admit to kidnapping her so, she begins to search for her real identity.  She asks, “Who am I? Sarah, Sally, Elaine. Johanson, Graham, Johnson, or Detective Scott.”  She concludes, NO! She’s Yellowstone’s Child!  The Appendix contains a timeline & list of characters.  If you respond by email to this blog, you can buy a copy for $6.00 plus actual shipping cost.

Yellowstone’s Child is on Amazon Kindle @ $3.99 and a Soft Cover Version @ &7.99

Two humorous stories to supplement Friday 11/24/2017 Blog. US Education’s Greatest Failure, EVOLUTION!

God made? OR Descended from apes?

Sarah, 10-years old, came home from school and asked her dad: “Dad at school today the students were talking about where did all the people in the world come from.  What’s the true answer? Where did they all come from?”

Her dad being an Atheistic Evolutionist answered with a detailed explanation of Evolution ending with: “So, you see Sarah, we are all descended from ancient creatures that looked like apes or monkeys.  Do you understand?”

Sarah acknowledged her dad’s explanation, but she thought: ”That’s not right, in Sunday school I was taught God made me.”  After dinner ended, dad was watching TV.  Sarah and her mother were cleaning up.  Sarah decided to ask her mother the same question she’d asked her dad; “Mom the kids at school were arguing about where all the people in the world came from.  Where did they all come from?”

Mom responded: ”About 6,000 years ago God created the Universe and everything in it in six days.  During the sixth day, he made two people named Adam and Eve that were made by God.  They received a mind, emotions and a will just like God.  They became the parents of all of the people in the world.”

Sarah looked puzzled and continued: “Mom I’m baffled.  I asked dad the same question today, and he told me we’re descended from monkeys.  Which way is it?”

“Well, Sarah, I understand why you’re confused, but I think I can solve this problem easily.  When you dad told you, people were descended from monkeys he was talking about his side of the family.  When I told you about Adam and Eve I was talking about my side of the family.”

Created Life? OR Evolving life?

Now that science has a good understanding of genetics and the complex functions in living systems I expect Evolutionists to claim soon that they can create life in the laboratory.

Evolutionists will say: “Now that we understand how life works, we believe we can create life in the laboratory from clay just like God claims He did.”  The Evolutionists go outside, dig clay from the ground and bring the clay into the laboratory.  “Now we will make life in the laboratory!”  They exclaim.

God’s voice booms: “Wait a minute.  That’s my clay. Make your own!”

The Evolutionists give up because they know you can’t get something from nothing.

US Education’s Greatest Failure, EVOLUTION! After more than 50 years of monopoly in public education, Evolution is only believed by half the US population.

Evolutionists express great frustration and distress in the persistent results of polling about whether the US public believes in Creation or Evolution as the origin of humankind. Poll after poll, after poll, after poll all say the same thing. About half the US population believes in Evolution in all its different forms, and the other half believes in Creation in all of its forms. Although evolutionists have had a monopoly in education for more than 55 years and have pounded Evolution into students all that time the numbers, haven’t changed much since they started. In some recent polls, the results of this question have even gotten worse for Evolution. For example, in two 2014 Gallup polls the results were;

Poll 1: “Do you believe in ape to man evolution?” 34% believed in God assisted (Theistic) Evolution, 16% believed in Atheistic Evolution, 43% in some form of Creation and 7% have no opinion. So, 50% believed in Evolution, 43% in Creation and 7% didn’t care, OR to say it another way 77% believed God played some role in our existence and only 16% believed He did not! Atheistic Evolutionary educators have taught five generations of students, attending public schools, that God did not play a role in their creation, and only 16% believed them! By any standard that’s a very poor result.

Poll 2, in May 2014: “Do you think the Theory of Evolution is consistent or inconsistent with your religious beliefs?” Consistent 46%, Inconsistent 46%, No Opinion 7%. Half and half again!

Since, shortly after the end of World War II, the US public schools taught Evolution as the ONLY way to explain humankind’s origin. In 1959 the 100th anniversary of Darwin’s publication of “Origin of the Species” was celebrated when Evolution education was declared essential for the US to be successful in scientific achievement. After more than 55 years of intensive educational effort to promote Evolution half, the US population remains unconvinced its true. Can we conclude that convincing students Evolution is true is not just a matter of education? Yes, we can! Changing one’s view of the question of, where we came from, is one of the most profound questions we ask.  Education doesn’t easily change a person’s worldview and presuppositions.  It’s NOT simply knowledge that you are trying to change; it’s their faith in who they are, and people do NOT change that easily. Humanistic Evolution educators, wake up, your attempts to educate the US population out of their faith has been an utter failure.

After more than 55 years of a near monopoly in public education indoctrinating students into Evolution, why have they been so unsuccessful convincing students they came from apes? The reason is obvious! Evolution is illogical and easily recognized as false. Education can’t overcome something that is obviously not true. People just won’t believe it even when it’s the only thing taught.

Two Approaches to Teach Your Children Biblical Truth

Now that my third book in Christian Apologetics is launched I’ve decided my next project will deal with Christian Education.  The tentative titles are: My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?  Addressing Christian Parent’s Dilemma of How to Educate Their Children.  Today, from my draft, I’ve included two approaches to teach your children Biblical truth.  Children of believing parents are responsible for instructing them from birth in God’s Truth and Word.  The first is an illustration of the power of God’s Word.  The second a “how to” lesson from one of my mentors that can be very effective teaching method.

One of my responsibilities early in my Christian life at Mitchel Road Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC was teaching the high school class. On Sunday, the lesson was on Jesus teaching about building your house on the rock or the sand from Matthew 7:24–27

The materials included little, fold-up, paper houses and pages with pictures of sand and rock. Although I thought this was poorly prepared teaching, never the less I taught it faithfully. I even told Terry (my wife and helpmate) on the ride home that it I thought it was a stupid lesson. Years later, I met one of the students from that class. He said, “Mr. Liebert, do you remember teaching the lesson about the two houses—one built on sand and the other built on rock?” I confirmed I remembered thinking to myself “That stupid lesson.” He said:  “Well, that lesson changed my life!” Lesson learned! Never sell short God’s ability to use weak vessels to carry out his will. And don’t trust your judgment regarding what God can do when you are faithful.

REMEMBER BOTH  1) There is no “stupid” in God’s vocabulary and 2) God’s Word has transforming power.

A great idea I got from one of my mentors was his daily review of TV newscasts with his children.  In the early evening, his children would be sent to do homework, and he would watch and videotape the news of the day.  He would pick out several stories and note the times on the tape.  The four children, ages 10 to 16 would come down for the family time each night about 7:00.  They would spend about 20 minutes reading Scripture and prayer.  Then he would play one of the stories from the tape and ask each child what Gods Word said about the content of the news report.  This interaction with the current news was a great learning time both because of his instruction but also the peer-to-peer communication between the four children.  He often created contention by asking “loaded” questions to get them to think about real spiritual issues.  For example, several of the children were doing a summer project reading “Les Misérables,” He asked: “Is it OK to steal bread if you are starving?” This question resulted in six days of lively evening discussions!   He shared one particular video news case with me.  The story was a home invasion where the homeowner shot and killed the intruder.  They all got into a lively discussion that lasted more than 2 hours.  The question they debated became: “When and if is it justifiable to take another person’s life.”  Years later the then 12-year-old would tell his father that story was a life-changing discussion because he realized for the first time how precious God views every human life.
