Dr. Gene Antonio challenged the students of Christian Liberty Academy on June 9, 2010.
Homeschooling Decently And In Order
The purpose of this article is to challenge parents to home school in a disciplined and orderly manner, for it is my sincere belief that only a structured approach to home schooling is consistent with biblical standards. This message is born out of a desire to see more parents prosper in their commitment to home school by adopting or maintaining approaches to learning that are true to Holy Scripture.

Devotion for Friday, September 17 from Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
“Bring him unto Me.” – Mark 9:19
DESPAIRINGLY the poor disappointed father turned away from the disciples to their Master. His son was in the worst possible condition, and all means had failed, but the miserable child was soon delivered from the evil one when the parent in faith obeyed the Lord Jesus’ word, “Bring him unto me.” Children are a precious gift from God, but much anxiety comes with them. They may be a great joy or a great bitterness to their parents; they may be filled with the Spirit of God, or possessed with the spirit of evil. In all cases, the Word of God gives us one receipt for the curing of all their ills, “Bring him unto me.” O for more agonizing prayer on their behalf while they are yet babes! Sin is there, let our prayers begin to attack it. Our cries for our offspring should precede those cries which betoken their actual advent into a world of sin. In the days of their youth we shall see sad tokens of that dumb and deaf spirit which will neither pray aright, nor hear the voice of God in the soul, but Jesus still commands, “Bring them unto me.” When they are grown up they may wallow in sin and foam with enmity against God; then when our hearts are breaking we should remember the great Physician’s words, “Bring them unto me.” Never must we cease to pray until they cease to breathe. No case is hopeless while Jesus lives.
The Lord sometimes suffers His people to be driven into a corner that they may experimentally know how necessary He is to them. Ungodly children, when they show us our own powerlessness against the depravity of their hearts, drive us to flee to the strong for strength, and this is a great blessing to us. Whatever our morning’s need may be, let it like a strong current bear us to the ocean of divine love. Jesus can soon remove our sorrow, He delights to comfort us. Let us hasten to Him while He waits to meet us.
Establishing A Home School Routine
The task of home education presents some unique challenges to parents who are involved in the teaching process. Perhaps the most difficult part of the routine of many home educators, is the daily struggle to try to be all things to everyone who is in need. Parent educators, by the very nature of their calling, must multi-task on a regular basis for when the school bell rings there is no way for them to shut themselves off from all so-called distractions.

What is Biblical Meditation? How is different from the pagan practices of meditation? What are some current dangers that Christians are facing with the introduction of mystical practices. In a recent sermon, I dealt with these questions.

Dear CLASS Families and Friends,
Thank you for your prayers for the Americans for Truth Conference that was held at CLA earlier in the month of August. On the first evening of the conference there were around 75-100 protestors organized by the Gay Liberation Network. Though some of the protestors were quite vulgar, rude, and even smelly, there was thankfully no violence. Some of the protestors were even willing to engage in serious conversation with some of the speakers and attendees of the conference. While the protestors were shouting about how the conference was inspired by hate, a former homosexual was sharing his story of God’s grace in his life.
I would strongly encourage you to order either CD’s or DVD’s from the conference. To learn more visit – www.aftah.org

Have you ever heard someone say, “It’s my life. I should be able to do what I want with it?” Of course you have. I would be willing to bet that most of us have said that, or at least felt it, at various times in our lives. We usually say it when a parent or other authority figure is making demands upon us that we resent. Continue reading 'It’s My Life!'»
Dad, are you the head of your household?
I think many men today, even (especially?) Christian men, do not know what it is to be head of their household. They don’t even know that they need to be. In many cases, it is because their fathers did not know either, and they were thus unable to teach their sons. This failure can be traced back to the Garden of Eden.

I suspect that making the transition from a public or Christian school to homeschooling is probably one of the most challenging things a parent can attempt. Whereas before you just bought the children some new clothes, a few pencils, and a book bag—and dropped them off at school (I know, Mom. It’s not quite that simple.) now all the mysterious stuff that happened at school is up to you.
While I am in a suspecting mood, I also suspect that many parents, in trying to set a daily schedule for their home school, don’t look much past the public or Christian school for a model. Is there any other way? Continue reading 'Right On Schedule'»
On August 5-7, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality will be holding a three-day conference for high school and college students as well as adults. This is a rigorous, 3-day program featuring some of the leading pro-family experts on homosexuality in the Culture War.
This three day conference will be held a Christian Liberty Academy. The conference costs $99 for students. However, all interested and serious students can attend for free or for whatever they can afford to pay. Money is being raised to help those who cannot afford the normal price. The price for adults (non-students) is $149. Married couples can attend for $199. There is also a Daily Option - $50/day which includes evening presentations on Thursday and Friday
Robert Knight, Coral Ridge Ministries
Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality
Ryan Sorba, Young Conservatives of California
Prof. Robert Gagnon, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
Prof. Rena Lindevaldsen, Liberty University Law School
Matt Barber, Liberty Counsel
Laurie Higgins, Illinois Family Institute
Greg Quinlan, Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays
The conference begins Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. and will conclude on Saturday evening. To register for this conference, visit aftah.org or send an e-mail to Peter LaBarbera - firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can’t come to this conference, please pray for its success and safety. Both times that Peter LaBarbera has been at CLA has resulted in protests by homosexual activists. Thankfully the two previous protests were not violent. While many Christians don’t want to discuss this issue, we must not be afraid to learn about what is taking place in order to more effectively minister to the lost and expose what is taking place in our culture. Psalm 94:16 declares, “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”
Please pray and be a part of this conference if you are able.
