Church and school are educational institutions designed to provide learning spaces and learning environments for the teaching of children under the direction of teachers whether they are historians, mathematicians or theologians who shouldn't inspire incompetence with wrong and unsubstantiated information but intelligence with resourceful, accurate and accountable information. Proverbs 22 (KJV) 6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

This scripture insinuates that training will always be right but there are pros and cons that follows this scripture. Training is teaching, or developing oneself or others, with skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. But it must be right knowledge and competency that gives a child the ability and not the instability to think successfully and efficiently. It comes with a freedom to think and not simply to believe.

As a child and a teen I never heard the word research in school or church. I was taught to believe the information. Research was an uncharacteristic word until college. Much of what I was taught in school and church I was taught to believe. Children shouldn't be taught to simply believe but question what they are taught for accuracy. Not as having a failure to respect authority but a means to rely on information.

Whether it is Adam, Jesus to Christopher Columbus there is fallibility in the information that can stand corrected. So train up a child in the way they should go: and when they is old, they will not depart from it. Correct training has a profound effect on a little mind that shouldn't be on principle that all information is accurated but researched to be lawful, accurate, truthful and precise.
