Is marriage more than just a social contract? It's hard to imagine it as anything more watching high profile divorces, and witnessing the homosexual lobby move to change marriage's definition.
However, there is a growing sentiment among Biblical leaders and social scientists that marriage is more than simply the joining of two people for cohabitation and social approval. The above link will take you the the Principal's Desk where we introduce you to some of the ideas from Biblical leaders and reserach analysts. They're saying that a Biblical definition of marriage is essential for a healthy society with contributing citizens.
The introduction of the debate will be accomplished at Hillcrest Academy. Students will be given social statistics and a Biblical framework to build their case. However, many social scientists are finding that the best way for a belief to be passed from one generation to another is through parents and meaningful adult mentors. We praise God that we have both at Hillcrest Academy, preparing our students for a Biblically-based life of significance.
A Shot From The Hip
Walking down the halls of Hillcrest, you will see students enamored with the topics and concepts their instructors and mentors are introducing. The Biblical definitions to their study of the world is something that many students across the world wish for.
As we continue to provide updates of the Hillcrest experience, we hope you are passing them along to other friends and family as they pray for your student and the training they're receiving at Hillcrest. We encourage you to continue to pray for the staff and faculty as they strive to communicate Christ to your student.
