Parents are mandated by God to educate their children. Children are gifts from God (Psalm 127: 3-5). Parents are responsibly to “train up” their children in the way of the Lord and not in the ways of the world (Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4). God’s people are told, “Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen… For the customs of the people are vain. (Jeremiah 10: 2-3). Proverbs 19:27 states, “Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge”. It is obvious that God has been very careful to instruct and warn parents as to the type of education a child is to receive.
In God’s economy of things, He has ordained three basic institutions: the family, the Church, and the State. The creation of a Christian Resource Centre under the direction of the Church serves as an extension of the home in assisting the parents in fulfilling their Christian responsibility to “train up” their children.
