Do you love Truth? Do you want your child to know the ntire Truth and not just a few true ideas scattered here
and there. God says “His truth endureth
to all generations” (Psalm 100: 5). But will
God’s Truth endure to your child’s generation if His truth is not allowed to be
heard, and the child is forced to believe
other things in a public school?
Every state compels parents to send their
child to a state-approved school, or fol-
low their mandated regulations for other
kinds of schooling. Public schools are the
cornerstone of the schooling system. It is
a government system. While the initial
intent of compulsory education laws was
to protect minors from being forced into
child labor, many parents today feel the
states have too much power. This system
can try to use this force against parents.
Today, it seems to be established to coerce
the child. In a public school, your child is
coerced to receive instruction by state-ap-
proved teachers. That instruction is man-
dated and imposed by your state legisla-
ture. You pay taxes to enforce this system
of control, whether you like it or not. Are
state-approved teachers free to teach real
Truth, or compelled to teach only state
Today, many Christians demand
that state governments “Save Public
Schools.” We demand Caesar choose the
child’s teachers and tell the child what to
think about. We fear leaving the child’s
mind to his or her own parents. We beg
the state school to tell our children what
is “true.” But can Truth survive in such
a system? Can it exist where God, the
only “God of Truth” is legally forbidden
(Isaiah 65: 16)?
