Memorial on Christian Education
All things are to be considered and conducted under the Lordship of Jesus Christ,
including education, and especially the education of our covenant children. God has
neither charged nor authorized the state to educate children within its civil jurisdiction.
God has commanded parents to bring up their children in the education and
admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:4, Deut. 6:7). Given the importance and enormity of
the task (Ps. 127:3-5, Deut. 6:7-9), and the impossibility of neutrality in education
(Prov. 1:7, Matt. 12:30, Luke 6:40, Col. 2:1-10, 2 Cor. 10:3-5), we do heartily affirm
the necessity of educating our children in a manner that is explicitly Christian in
content and rigor.
