Have you been sneaking peeks at my last NaNo?The practical problem is that, unlike the Pilgrims, we have nowhere to go. This planet doesn't have any new frontiers to colonize to escape. Like it or not, we're stuck here, at least until interplanetary colonization becomes an option.
In the New Testament, there is Matthew 10:14. So yes, we should at least try. But if they refuse to listen, or even threaten to kill you (or in some cases actually do kill some of your mission party)? Then perhaps it's time to wash your hands - or feet - of it and leave them to their eternal fate. (Interestingly enough, this is still considered relevant in the LDS church, but nowadays, only for the most extreme cases.)
What Scriptural basis would we have for withdrawal?
It's working for our kids. Homeschooling is a pretty good alternative compared to public schools.
Anyway, my husband and I plan to homeschool and shelter our kids pretty well until they are over 10 or so. We don't have any yet so we haven't worked out all the details. But, that is to prepare them to engage the world at a somewhat young age.
