Homeschooling and Christian Educating

I recently put a post on my blog and I prefaced the blog by saying there would be nothing to add. Our pastor is preaching a series in Romans and he has come to chapter 14 about not offending those weaker in the faith, so I removed the post...Here is a sample from Romans 14: 1)As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. 2)One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. 3)Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
Well you can call me the weak one if you would like, but today after talking to a new wiser friend on the subject; I'm going to post the video again because I do think this message needs to be said, but I am going to preface this by adding more than I did last time I posted my lay-it-on-the-line brother Vodie.

First of all, I am not against teachers. If that were the case, I would dislike myself and there have been a lot of teacher influence in my life to the positive, but I do think the system is corrupt and therefore it is binding wonderful hearted teachers from being able to have Godly influence in the classroom.

Secondly, my family, and what they learn, is my responsibility; regardless if they are in public, private, or homeschool. There isn't one teacher I know that will dispute this. If Johnny, is failing, normally the mom and dad haven't given him the environment to strive in and they are not holding him accountable.

Thirdly, whether you agree with homeschooling or not, you must admit that the environment your children are in is what they will become. I use to hear this all the time when I was in a secular working environment. I would hear things like; "Look around you and see who you are keeping company with, statistics tell us that you will be like those people in 5 years". If this is the case with adults; how much more with children.

With that all being said, here is the video again:
