Present Truth for Kids Homeschooling Curriculum is Under Development!
The Bible, as a textbook for language, is without a rival. In the King James Version the minds of our youngsters experience the purest way our language can be represented. The thoughts there expressed are so succinct that their import are often lost sight of. The Bible is the only book, currently in print, which says entire histories in few words. This directness and forcefulness, this true weightiness, is the characteristic of the language of the Bible. And the person whose vocabulary is composed most fully of the words, the phraseology, and the forthrightness of the Bible, will be the most direct and forcible speaker or writer. They will also be able to say most in fewest words. Our curriculum will, by God’s grace, will reflect and instruct on this peculiarity of the Word.
Science and numbers are as teachable from the Bible as theology. Many are under the misconception, however, that subjects of this quality need a secular and human mind to define its perimeters of understanding. Nothing else can be as ludicrous as this: the Omniscient One needing to bow to human intellect on numerical and scientific disciplines. Our upcoming curriculum, will happily discredit this thought as fallacious and baseless.
The Spirit of Prophecy tells us, in Patriarch and Prophets, the following words: “The chief subjects of study in these schools (Schools of the Prophets) were the law of God, with the instructions given to Moses, sacred history, sacred music, and poetry.” In the book Education she speaks in a complimentary manner on the poetry found in the Bible. “The earliest as well as the most sublime of poetic utterances known to man are found in the Scriptures. Before the oldest of the world’s poets had sung, the shepherd of Midian recorded those words of God to Job–in their majesty unequaled, unapproached, by the loftiest productions of human genius: Job 38: 2-27 quoted.” On music she says, within the same reference: “The history of the songs of the Bible is full of suggestion as to the uses and benefits of music and song. Music is often perverted to serve purposes of evil, and it thus becomes one of the most alluring agencies of temptation. But, rightly employed, it is a precious gift of God, designed to uplift the thoughts to high and noble themes, to inspire and elevate the soul.” We are endeavoring to instruct on these thoughts within our upcoming curriculum.
Critical thinking, as it is within the world, has no part or place in True Education. In order to not have it understood that that type of thought is being referenced, our curriculum has coined the term: faith-filled thinking. Within this idea are involved multiple subjects, the primary ones being: wisdom, knowledge, law, history, biblical philosophy and logic. The PTFK Curriculum will teach each of those subjects independently while allowing them to maintain their relation to the habit of thinking faith.
