Don't look now...

...but that sound that you just heard like the trash being taken out was really the Red Sox being swept in Tampa Bay by the 1st place Rays.

Covenant vs. Evangelical

So I got in this discussion with a brother of mine at breakfast this morning. Not my job to judge another's spiritual growth or status, but suffices to say that from the fruit he bears, he's not so mature.

We were discussing the recent expulsion of two seniors from our Christian School for using drugs on campus.

He had a problem with one strike your out, and the inconsistency the board uses when making said decisions. He referenced the fact that with his own son (Junior), he has seen marked improvement in behavior since attending Christian school - the friends he has chosen and the girl friend are great influences, yatta, yatta. He just felt that if his son were at the public school he would have big problems.

When I explained to my "weaker in the faith" brother that the school was founded (55 years ago) as a Covenant Christian School (not an Evangelical Christian School), with the purpose of becoming an extention of the Christian home and Church, not for the purpose of evangelizing or reaching the lost...he really pushed back. He felt like that outlook was wrong, un-Christ-like, etc.

So, I'm curious what do you think? What are your thoughts on Christian schools in general? And if you have any leaning toward supporting the idea, are you Evangelistic leaning or Covenant leaning?
