Quotes

“If Psalm 1 is to be believed, we must not allow our children to stand, sit or walk with those who deny biblical truth and morality. Instead, we must place them in situations that will aid them in meditating on the law of the Lord ‘day and night.’ Surely this involves how and where they are to be educated.” – Voddie Baucham

“The two major underpinnings of a socialist, ungodly, controlled society are public education and the income tax. We shall not be a free people until we get rid of both institutions.”  – Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld

“It is the vocation of the Christian in every generation to out-think all opposition.” – Elton Trueblood

“Every single time we open ourselves up to be neutral, we’re opening ourselves up to be discipled by a culture that is anything but neutral.” – Benjamin Botkin

“All law is enacted morality and presupposes a moral system – a moral law – and all morality presupposes a religion as its foundation. Whenever and wherever you weaken the religious foundations of a country or people, you then weaken the morality also, and you take away the foundations of its law. The result is the progressive collapse of law and order, and the breakdown of society. This is what we are experiencing today.” – R. J. Rushdoony

“I am as sure as I am of Christ’s reign that a comprehensive and centralized system of national education, separated from religion, as is now commonly proposed, will prove the most appalling enginery for the propagation of anti-Christian and atheistic unbelief, and of anti-social nihilistic ethics, individual, social and political, which this sin-rent world has ever seen.”  –  A.A. Hodge

“The right place for a child’s education is with his family and in his own home where God placed him for that very purpose, and the right and best teachers are his own God-chosen parents.” – Josiah Friberg

“All education is inescapably religious because it conveys a worldview that determines a person’s life. We are in a battle of ideas that have eternal consequences. ‘For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.’ Our children need to be trained in a Christian Biblical worldview that educates them for God & glorifies God in every sphere of life.” Josiah Friberg

“It needs more than ever to be stressed that the best and truest educators are parents under God. The greatest school is the family … The moral training of the child, the discipline of good habits, is an inheritance from the parents to the child which surpasses all others. The family is the first and basic school of man.” – R. J. Rushdoony

Get to work and teach the ignorant, win the wayward, instruct the children. … Go and serve the Lord by helping the poor and the needy, the widow and the fatherless; serve him by teaching the children, especially by endeavoring to train your own children.”  – C.H. Spurgeon
