Christians admonished to ‘take ownership’ of children’s education

From Rusty Pugh and One News Now.

“An Orlando pastor who heads the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools says it’s time for believers to stop disobeying God and take ownership of the education of our children.

Edward Gamble is director of the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools, based in Orlando. SBACS is sponsoring seminars around the country to train church leaders how to open private schools, in order to get children out of the secular public schools. Gamble says sending children to be indoctrinated by a secular, humanist institution is not biblical.

“Failure to do what God says is called disobedience. You can color it whatever color you want, but it’s still disobedience — it’s rebellion,” argues Gamble. “And when God’s people don’t take ownership of the education of their children, they’re disobeying God.”

The Southern Baptist official supports his argument with scripture. “[God] says very clearly throughout scripture ‘I expect you to raise Godly seed’ and ‘Teach these things to your children,’ He says in Deuteronomy. In Luke He says ‘give a child the teachers you want him to have because when he grows up he’ll look like the teacher.'”

Gamble says the major fallacy is that there is any such thing as an education that can be secular. “Scripture doesn’t know anything about any part of our lives being secular,” he states. “Everything’s sacred.”
