If You’re Wondering What The Other Side Is Doing …
Statement by conservative apologist Ken Ham
- Most Sunday School/Bible School & VBS programs & many Homeschool & Christian School bible curricula are really shallow fluff & stuff teaching “stories.” That’s why AiG developed what I believe are the most powerful unique bible teaching curricula (Answers Bible Curriculum) in the world for Sunday School/Bible school (all ages), VBS, & Homeschool curricula with Christian School bible curriculum coming. These curricula are chronological, evangelistic, teach apologetics, doctrine and Christian worldview. Most Christians don’t have a true Christian worldview. Let’s make sure generations understand Christianity is based in real history, not just “stories,” & teach how to defend the faith!
Here at SWK, we promote critical thinking, not indoctrination, and so while we feel critical thinking will lead to secularism more often than not, our main aim is to level the playing field to let kids make free and informed decisions.
