How the Seed of Local Self-Government is Planted
May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$10
The family is the first level of local self-government. It is at this level that God has designed most of the functions of life to take place: material provision, nurture and raising of children, including their education, medical needs, and spiritual development. It is God’s plan and purpose that these essentials of life are taken care of at the most basic level of government, the family, rather than at a more centralized level of government, whether it is the city or county, the state, or the federal government. This is the essence of the principle of local self-government. Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to civil governments; all others are retained by the people or other institutions or authorities. The seeds of local self government are planted through Biblical Christian education. We must teach our children the truth or the lie will take root in their hearts and minds.
