This is to all Christian parents out there, who homeschool their children and are looking for some free curriculum options. This is why we should not use The Good and The Beautiful Curriculum in our homeschools.

Why Christians Should NOT use The Good and The Beautiful Curriculum image

It’s not Christian

This article isn’t for those who are who are LDS (or Mormons), it is written to Christians who are currently using The Good and the Beautiful or considering it and trying to understand the controversy. It’s for parents to share with other parents, when this comes up in debates, with why’s or why nots. So, lets jump right in!

The LDS church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is not Christian. They do not believe how Christians believe. Therefore, their curriculum cannot be Christian. You cannot stay neutral when it comes to advertising and writing what is supposed to be a “Christian Curriculum.”

In fact, here is a small list of what they believe with links to their statement:

Mormon vs. Christian

This only scratches the surface of what they believe, and goes against what REAL Christianity is, as stated in the Bible. The book of Deuteronomy warns against changing or adding to Gods Word, in which they have.

Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take anything from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”

They want to CONFUSE you

They want to resemble Christianity so bad, that they have changed their name. They have done this to deceive many people about who they are, a cult. They began as the church of latter-day saints, now from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Church of Jesus Christ. They want people to believe they are Christians with a different denomination. But they are far from it. They will be quick to say no, “we are just like you guys, but hold a different denomination like Baptist or Pentecostal.” I don’t think so.

Free is not really FREE

They offer you a free curriculum to get it into your homes. They are willing to give away free resources this big, because let’s face it, many Christians choose to homeschool for religious reasons. A Christian Child needs a CHRISTIAN education, right? So, they deceptively label their curriculum Christian, with things so close to our faith, that we often won’t see it unless we are actively searching and reading the Bible. Sort of how the Jehovah witness will give away a free Childrens bible.

If they can just get mommas to argue amongst each other and hide the truth, they will. I have seen many arguments in groups and also mommas going at it in our PSP forum. But we are NOT the enemy.

2 Corinthians 11:3 “But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

God comes to bring us LIFE! John 10:10“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.”

Ephesians 6:12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

It’s YOUR choice Christian Parents

Ultimately, it’s your choice as parents what you are going to bring into your household. I know how hard it can be when we are trying to homeschool practically free, and free curriculum sounds good. However, there are many free curriculums out there, for example, Easy Peasy All-In-One Homeschool, and Khan Academy. Don’t use any curriculum based on popularity but evaluate whether it will match your beliefs and what your family needs.

As For Me and MY home

I hope many more avid homeschool writers will consider writing an article to help mommas and papas out there, in this controversy. The more we help the Christian parent understand, the better! You don’t have to take our word for it, parents, you can research it yourself, starting with the LDS church and what they really are.

Have a blessed day,

Joshua 24:15 “But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.”
