The Christadelphian War Against Education

Contributed by Geri

I just visited the Christadelphian Home School UK site

 and found this quote;

"One of the greatest benefits of teaching our children at home is that we are in control. We decide what is taught and how. We have total control over our children's safety. We are able to tailor-make our teaching to benefit our children, so that girls can be taught how to run the home, how to bake, how to knit and sew."
"We are in a position to equip our children for a spiritually governed approach to life. The boys can be encouraged to adopt subjects and careers that will not conflict with their embracing of the truth. The possibilities are endless and exciting because we are in control." 
- If this is a model of what a Christadelphian education is it is very alarming, 'we are in control'!

It sounds like any education is wasted on females if they are just going to be domestics.
Why don't the Christadelphians find themselves some land and live like the Amish? They obviously want total segregation.

Presumably these children would not have access to the internet or television in case they come across any 'brain washing' in the real world?

Education would be wasted on their daughters anyway. Their only purpose is to procreate and fill seats in the meeting room.

And what are these jobs that don't conflict with 'embracing the truth'? The only place they could work is at the CMPA office where they won't be Influenced by the real world.
If this Home schooling Website is not evidence of a cult then I don't know what is.

Editor's Note:
I note the following quotes on their website:
"Whilst we walk through our symbolic wilderness, we often gain valuable exhortation from God's people in the literal wilderness. It is therefore not surprising that when we consider the education of our children, we gain equally valuable guidance from considering God's instruction to His people in the wilderness regarding the teaching of their children:"

"Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
Deuteronomy 11:18-19

- God's method of educating Hebrew young people resulted in them becoming a nation of idolaters who eventually killed their Messiah and who have suffered persecution from God for the past TWO THOUSAND YEARS. I hardly think that we have anything to learn from his curriculum. If God were running a school, it would have been closed by the authorities thousands of years ago!  
Or how about this disturbing quote from the Christadelphian Home School UK site?:
"Take control"

 "By being in control of our children’s learning, we reap the rewards of being part of our child’s developing years. Instead of giving up our children to the world at the precious age of four, we can be with them all the way –teaching, guiding, nurturing. Controlling the learning gives us the advantage of avoiding all the damaging, counter productive, and blatantly ungodly brainwashing in evidence in today’s schools."

"We are freed from any pressure to teach or counter Evolution and Humanism, which have infiltrated most subjects. Ultimately with home schooling, we can take control of our children’s development. Rather than consign our precious little ones, who after all are God’s heritage, to the indoctrination of the world, we can give full meaning to the command to, "Bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord"."

- This shows that Christadelphian Home Schooling is an extreme manifestation of the general Christadelphian anti-science war on education. They know that if their children and young people are allowed to mix with kids in normal society, they will quickly realise that they have been brought up on a diet of lies and deception in the Christadelphian community. So they project their own failings onto the outside world and accuse normal healthy society of "brainwashing" and "indoctrination" and seek to keep them from the truth. 
Nothing could be further from the truth. It is the Christadelphians who are victimising their own children, by attempting to brainwash them into a minority, fundamentalist, anti-science religious sect.
This sort of fundamentalist religious home schooling has a damaging psychological effect on its victims. Click here to visit a website run by religious home schooled victims and read their tragic stories

PS. One of the Christadelphian home school mothers sent me an email two years ago. It read:

"Vengeance is mine saith the Lord - I will repay."

- That girl simply could not wait for the return of Christ, to see me tortured and murdered by her Lord! That's the sort of dysfunctional morality that she is teaching her kids. What a sick person.
