Teens In The News: Patrick Armstrong

The Rebelution::

“In a chilling reminder of the lessons being learned from David Ludwig and Kara Borden, news broke yesterday morning that for the second time in less than a month a homeschool teen has been arrested for murder. Patrick Armstrong, a 14-year-old homeschooler from Fayette, Maine, has been charged with killing his neighbor”

The Harris young men have some interesting coverage from the perspective of being homeschoolers themselves about the impact on homeschoolers of this and the other recent murders- it is well worth reading some of their recent posts.

As we have discussed over the past few weeks: homeschooling, by itself, is not enough to prevent tragedies like this from happening. Going to church, by itself, is not enough to prevent tragedies like this from happening. Both of those things are good, but while many things are used by God as means of imparting His grace, they are not grace itself. To claim otherwise is to make homeschooling, or church, or a book, or a blog, or a method, or a mere human being rather than Christ our god.
