OUR CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

A Christian philosophy of education must recognize and accept that all wisdom comes from God, for God is wisdom. All education begins and continues with a reverential awe of and trust in God. Romans 11:33-36; I Cor. 1:24, 30, 3; Psalm 111:10; Psalm 19:9; Psalm 90:12

The home has the primary responsibility for education. Genesis 18:19; Deuteronomy 6:6-7

The promise of God is that children trained in the way that they should go will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

Parents must educate or delegate the education. Regardless, parents will personally give an account to God for the training given. Romans 14:12

Training of children includes the Biblical method of discipline. Hebrews 12:6-11; Proverbs 22: 15; Proverbs 23:13,14 This discipline demonstrates genuine love because the final result is to restore fellowship and harmony with God. Hebrews 12:11

To discipline without love is to provoke to anger. Ephesians 6:4

To love without discipline is to produce a rebel, as was David’s sons, Adonijah and Absalom. I Kings 1:5,6

The total development of children must consist of the training and educational skills necessary for the individual to strive for and attain his/her potentials for practical Godly living, spiritual growth, and life time service for God and others. Ephesians 4:11,12
