Pastor Steven Warhurst of Kingsport introduced the resolution on the floor of the PCA's General Assembly in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
...
"We are people who drank heavily from the trough of state education and realized that it's poisonous," Warhurst says, "and now we've found cisterns of living water, so to speak -- and we'd love other people to join us.I'd love to see every family in the Presbyterian Church in America take their children out of the public schools and train them in the fear and admonition of the Lord."
Warhurst, whose church consists mostly of home-schooling families, says Christian pastors have been silent on the issue far too long.He thinks he knows why that is.
"I think one reason pastors don't speak out against public schools or encourage Christian education is because people will get mad and leave [their church].That's probably the primary reason: fear," he says.Additional factors, he says, could be "some ignorance of the public school system and what is really going on there" and "a lack of understanding of the Christian worldview."
The Tennessee pastor contends that many people do not understand that history, literature, and science can be taught from a Christian perspective.He tells WorldNetDaily that he remains optimistic about the chances of his resolution, despite what he hears to the contrary."There are a lot of folks [in the PCA] who support Christian education," he says.

The Truth About Homeschooling in Tri-Cities

A similar effort was turned down flat by the Presbyterian Church of America. (PCA) Westminster Presbyterian's Rev. Steve Warhurst in Kingsport, Tennessee was behind that effort at the PCA convention.
Warhurst believes the Bible requires parents to provide their children with a Christian education. And he says they're not getting it in public school systems. However, the PCA's General Assembly in Chattanooga voted to reject Warhurst's resolution that encouraged parents to home-school or place children in private schools. To quote Warhurst,"a truly Christian education begins with fear of the Lord, and teaches children to think biblically about all of life...The public schools are not doing that...people on both sides would say that's obviously not happening...We believe there is a Biblical way to think about history and literature and science, and it has a different perspective than what would be taught from an atheistic perspective, or even a Muslim or Jewish perspective...We think the children should be taught to think biblically."
He continues, "I'd say that's a good reason to home-school children...I'm not really interested in the socialization...When I see the effects of socialization on children, it seems to promote rebellion...30 hours of public, anti-Christian education a week are hard to override in an hour of church..." But what's the problem with private Christian schools?
...
The rhetoric from Warhurst and others is Reconstructionism almost verbatim.
