Why is Capitalism more Christian than Socialism

This week Lisa Nehring shares what Capitalism has to do with quality and work, what Socialism has to do with equity, and resources to further elaborate on the question, Why is Capitalism more Christian?Why is Capitalism more Christian than Socialism

In this episode, Director of True North Homeschool Academy, Lisa Nehring talks with Ethan Nehring, who teaches Latin, History and Writing about the difference between socialism and capitalism and why capitalism is a more Christian system than socialism.

Good government provides freedom, equity and justice.

Capitalism has to do with quality and work. Hard work results in better results. Nothing keeps a person from leaving the system.

Main flaw is deception related to supply and demand. Discernment and honesty are super important to making the system work well. Allows for accountability and responsibility. Assumes equality of opportunity, equitable justice and enforces justices.

 

Socialism has to do with equity; results oriented. You are not supposed to get ahead. Results of work are redistributed so that it is “even.” Kills motivation. It is unjust reward; theft. Prone to theft and corruption as the “overseeres” usually the government are prone to corruptions. Robs humans of responsibility and free will.

Why is Capitalism more Christian is an important topic for young Americans to wrestle with!

To get started:

  1. Work out
  2. Study- consider study as worship
  3. Serve your neighbors
  4. Pray
  5. Submit to your pastors.

Post 2020 College Education

Today on the show, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring talks with John Witherspoon College President Dr. John Swann. We’re talking about worldview and how 2020 has created an environment where it is more necessary than ever before for parents to consider alternative forms of education for their kids.Today on the show, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring talks with John Witherspoon College President Dr. John Swann. We’re talking about worldview and how 2020 has created an environment where it is more necessary than ever before for parents to consider alternative forms of education for their kids.

2020 was a watershed year in our country, and it changed the culture of our county, altering how everyone looked at and trusted institutions. People began to view institutions as not working in their best interest, which has caused destabilization in many industries.

Education, in particular had big changes due to

  1. Not being tied down to a location
  2. The non-educational agenda inserted into education.

Public education has a very lock step agenda that allows little to no diversity for thought.

The reasons for this is that

  1. the church has been too passive and has allowed an encroachment of paganism into the church
  2. Disillusionment with Christian values

Klingon’s saying from Start Trek: Survival and Success!

America has gone from a Christian culture to a non Christian culture and since 2020, we’ve been an anti-Christian culture.

 

Parents and students need to choose college wisely. Consider the world view as well as the academic integrity of the institution.

What will make our kids successful in the future? According to the World Economic Forum, only two of those top 10 skills required will be tech skills.The remainder are interpersonal skills

How can Grandparents Support their Homeschool Kids

Today on the show, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring talks with Homeschooling Grandparent, Melissa Swenda about how she is supporting her daughter’s family as they homeschool.Today on the show, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring talks with Homeschooling Grandparent, Melissa Swenda about how she is supporting her daughter’s family as they homeschool. If you are taking classes at True North, Melissa’s daughter is Anna Knaub, who teaches Dystopian Literature, Austen/ Bronte British Literature and Medieval Literature at True North, as well as being part of our Enrollment team!

 

Melissa has worked for 20 years as an Instructional Assistant and Learning Support Asssitiant in the public school system. She was not surprised that her daughter and son -in-law decided to homeschool granddaughters and she could not be more thrilled.

 

Melissa is a proponent of homeschooling because she believes that

  1. You can’t teach life experiences in the classroom
  2. You can’t teach common sense in the classroom

 

Some fun ways that she support their homeschooling family:

 

  1. Adventure fun that the entire extended family contributes too throughout the year. These funds then go to lessons or family passes at the zoo, etc-
  2. Grandparents go on adventures WITH their kids and grandkids on adventures, when they can.
  3. Face-time- sometimes daily a the kids are playing or doing school.
  4. Sharing pictures and videos with each other
  5. Reading to the kids.Keeping a copy of a favorite book at Grandparents house.
  6. Having activity baskets at Grandparents house
  7. Purchasing fun educational supplies from the Dollar aisle.
  8. Including kids in favortie activities, like baking, gardening and woodworking.
  9. Creating a place for grandkids to watch grandparents do their favorite hobbies.
  10. Pray for your kids and your grandkids

 

And, if your adult children decide to homeschool and you are against their decision, remember that your adult child is an adult, they are parenting their children and support them the best that you can.

 

“Families are scattered nowadays- life can be more simple if we take care of each other.” Meslissa Swenda

 

In public school you can’t fail. But failure is a part of learning. When you homeschool, you can talk about why something didn’t work, or why something failed.

 

You’re the Only Jesus Somewill Ever See David Will

If not in You

I wonder where will they ever see

The One who really cares

If not from You

How will they find

There’s One who heals the broken heart

Gives sight to the blind?

‘Cause You’re the only Jesus some will ever see

And You’re the only words of life some will ever read

So let them see in You the One in whom is all they’ll ever need

‘Cause You’re the only Jesus some will ever see

And if not You

I wonder who will show them love

And love alone can make things new

If not from You

How will they learn

There’s One who trades their hopelessness

For joy in return?

‘Cause You’re the only Jesus some will ever see

And You’re the only words of life some will ever read

So let them see in You the One in whom is all they’ll ever need

‘Cause You’re the only Jesus some will ever see

So let Him shine

Let Him show

Let them see Him in You

You’ve got to let them know

‘Cause You’re the only Jesus some will ever see

And You’re the only words of life some will ever read

So let them see in You the One in whom is all they’ll ever need

‘Cause You’re the only Jesus

You’re the only Jesus some will ever see
