"A resolution that will be considered by the Southern Baptist Convention next month calls on the millions of members of the denomination to pull their kids out of government schools and either homeschool them or send them to Christian schools.
I am not a member of the Southern Baptist Convention but I am glad to see that someone is making a statement in a bold way. Of course, there are a variety of opinions on how a parent should educate their children but the Word of God is the standard by which all of the Christians should submit their opinion. It is encumbant upon every parent to search the scriptures and see what it says about the education of our children.
The authors use Scripture in the resolution to argue those Baptists who trust the public-school system with their children are being disobedient to God. "Government schools are by their own confession humanistic and secular in their instruction, [and] the education offered by the government schools is officially Godless," the measure states.

Bravo to the Baptists for being forthright about their interpretation. I look forward to see how others will respond.
