One of our Lord’s most profound statements and perhaps the clearest one on child-rearing is “…Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s…” (Mar 12.17). Christ said this after viewing an imprint of Caesar on a penny. It was issued by the Romans – directly connected to government. Children, by huge contrast, are “issued” (via parents) by the Lord and are made in His Image. The state has no right to educate children.
