It’s not now, never has been and never will be possible to build a great nation without alignment with the truth about who we are, how we got here, why we exist and where we are going. In this regard the following Psalm resonates with truth that impacts the soul:
The Lord merely spoke,
and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
and all the stars were born.
He assigned the sea its boundaries
and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
Let the whole world fear the Lord,
and let everyone stand in awe of him.
For when he spoke, the world began!
It appeared at his command.
The Lord frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes.
But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken.
What joy for the nation whose God is the Lord,
whose people he has chosen as his inheritance (Psalm 33:6-12 NLT).
Does this mean the earth is only 4000 years old? I don’t think so. It takes 4 years for light to travel from the nearest star, Sirius, to earth and 7000 years from Eagle Nebula – which is visible through the Hubble telescope. Yet with an intelligence and power beyond our comprehension daddy God created the universe in his own good time and invited us into relationship with himself through his son Jesus.
So isn’t this one of the greatest issue facing the nation… a secular education system disconnected from its creator and being unable to educate a nation on the most important questions of life: who am I, how did I get here, why am I here and where am I going?
These are questions to which atheists and secularists have no answer. Yet to be qualified to teach our nation properly we need to discover the truth that provides answers to these essential questions.
It’s time for re-formation of education across the nation.
