What would you do Wednesday!
Religious disagreements in public schools is a hot topic today. People get upset over various issues from a school is forcing non-Muslims girls to wear a hijab, allowing a “Walk a Mile in Her Hijab” campaign, or banning prayer.
What if your child came home with a notice that, in the name of religious tolerance and understanding, all students will participate in the “John 3:16 Challenge” which has the following theme.
16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God. – John 3:16-18 (HCSB)
Students will go to public places with a teacher chaperone and share the gospel to better understand how people receive (or reject) the core Christian message. The goal is to help non-Christians better understand and tolerate Christians and their belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What would you do?
- Encourage your child to go and see if you can help.
- Keep your child home and complain the school is promoting religion.
