Southern Baptist Homeschool Resolution

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The Southern Baptist Church is in the midst of a debate about the
suitability of public schools for Christian children.

The Southern Baptist Convention, which will be held this year in
Indianapolis June 15-16th, votes on resolutions which will be policy
for the churches belonging to the Convention.

A pro-homeschool resolution has been submitted by T.C. Pinckney and
Bruce N. Shortt to the Southern Baptist Convention Resolutions
Committee. This committee will decide whether the resolution will be
approved for a floor vote at the Indianapolis Convention. The
resolution instructs church members to either homeschool or send their
children to a Christian school.

Christian Education Resolution:

HSLDA strongly supports this resolution.


For Southern Baptist Church members only.

If you agree with the Pinckney - Shortt resolution please contact
members of the Resolutions Committee. These members need to hear from
Southern Baptists who support the resolution in order for it to clear
their committee and be presented at the Convention.

Homeschooling is growing rapidly and successfully producing mature
Christian citizens with a Biblical worldview. It's time for the wider
Christian community to make the choice for homeschooling.

Please send this message "Allow an up or down vote on the Christian
Education Resolution." Your letter could also include how your family
has benefited from homeschooling.

Please write, e-mail or call now!

When a social service worker arrives at your door, tension can run
high. Wouldn't it be nice to get your lawyer on the phone,
providing you with immediate step-by-step guidance?
