“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,
And to God the things that are God’s.”
“…we must also remember the civil submission required of us in the Bible.
This submission does not include submitting our children…”
The question is this:
Whose image do children bear?
God’s image or the State’s?
Christian parents should render their children to
He Whose image they bear!
God has not authorized Christian parents
To give their children to the state,
But rather to raise them in
The fear and admonition of the Lord.
Sending Christian to public school
Is rendering to Caesar that which belongs to God!
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (NKJV)
“…bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”
Ephesians 6:4 (NKJV)
“O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the LORD. For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, Because they are filled with eastern ways; They are soothsayers like the Philistines, And they are pleased with the children of foreigners.”
Isaiah 2:5-6 (NKJV)
“Bind up the testimony, Seal the law among my disciples…To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”
Isaiah 8:16, 20 (NKJV)
“And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They said to Him, “Caesar’s.” And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s“” [What is God’s? Those who bear God’s image].
Matthew 22:20-21 (NKJV)
It ought to be self-evident that public school and the above verses are not in harmony. Which therefore will you conform to?
