If you want to be encouraged, inspired, or motivated to begin
homeschooling or perhaps refocus on getting your house in order
using God's design, you need to watch this 2-volume DVD set by
Voddie Baucham. If you've lost your vision for why you started
educating your children at home or if you feel "burned out," The
Children of Caesar might be just the ticket to help you regain
your momentum and get back on track.
Dr. Voddie Baucham Jr. is passionate about what he believes, and
he is not afraid to say what he means and mean what he says! In
today's politically correct society, it is certainly refreshing
to hear a voice calling Christian parents to stand up and reclaim
their God-given right to bring up their own children in the nurture
and admonition of the Lord. It's not a popular message, but it
is definitely one whose time has come.
On the first DVD, titled "Whoever Controls the Schools Controls
the World," Baucham makes an extremely compelling plea to parents
to take the initiative in their children's education and stop letting
the government-controlled schools do the job. He uses Scripture
to back up his lecture, but the statistics he quotes are frightening
and startling. I think one of the best things he says in this talk
(and I might be paraphrasing slightly) is, "If you send your children
to Caesar, don't be surprised if they come back as Romans." Wow!
That is putting the hammer on the nail, and it is certainly something
to ponder. And he makes the case that whoever controls the schools
does indeed control the world.
The second DVD is appropriately entitled "Getting Your House in
Order," and again the message that Dr. Baucham presents is not
popular, even among many Christians. We don't like hearing that
perhaps what we think is normal might in fact, be wrong for those
who profess to be followers of Christ. By human nature, we don't
like to be looked upon as different or as someone who doesn't follow
the herd mentality. But is that what we have been called to do?
Dr. Baucham expounds upon Deuteronomy 6 and highlights six principles
of an "orderly" home, and he does an excellent job of motivating
parents and families to "change the world--one household at a time."
I cannot recommend The Children of Caesar enough, and
I truly believe that every Christian family (homeschooling or not)
should watch these lectures. It will reestablish your purpose and
may even change your life! Yes, Voddie Baucham is a dynamic speaker,
but more than that, he directs parents and families back to God's
Word as a foundation for Christian homes and real education. Very
well done! To find out more about Dr. Voddie Baucham Jr. and his
