But results have been disappointing, even tragic, for some. A father wrote me, telling the sad story of how his homeschooled “Christian” son, eighteen years old, went off to a “Christian school” and after one year came home professing atheism. He had been “enlightened” with psychology, manuscript evidences, and philosophy. He had become sexually involved, approved of sodomy, and his choice of reading and viewing was pornography. He ridiculed the faith he seemingly held from his youth. This is one true story among an increasing number.

(Submitter note: Manuscript evidence refers to the common practice of textual criticism, which is the attempt to study and weed out copying errors by comparing different ancient texts. In other words, this kid's faith has been shattered by discovering the mere *possibility* of a typo.)
