By the time you read this, thousands of students will be busy settling into a new school year, be it public, private, home school or college. Education is designed to equip people to reason, make sound judgments and become a mature adult. With that in mind I think we can all agree education is important whether it is formal education, on-the-job or everyday experiences. A day doesn’t go by that we don’t learn something.
Unfortunately not all we are taught or learn is true, helpful or correct. To be taught that something is true but it is not will impair one’s judgment and ability to reason with beneficial outcomes. For example: to be taught that a certain people group is evil and came from pigs and must be eliminated is to teach a lie and have profound consequences. Or to be told that man is on his own and either God doesn’t exist or can’t be relied upon will have negative results. Or to teach that the Bible is not accurate in all that it says and most of the reported historical events are really myth, allegory or spiritual principles—but not historical—will have very dangerous results. To be sure, for any education to be valuable and to deliver the knowledge to make sound decisions, judgments and become a mature adult, it must be grounded on truth.
Praise be to God our Father and his Son Jesus Christ for giving us his divine word and the Holy Spirit who leads us into truth.
Unfortunately Satan is doing his best to convince people the Bible is untrustworthy and out-of-date, and man’s opinion and interpretation of what is discovered is far more accurate.
Beginning September 7, Sunday school or Christian education begins. It is designed to impart Biblical knowledge establishing a Biblical worldview so we can practice sound reasoning, judgment and live as mature adults. That’s why the Bible is the basis for Christian education; it’s true for all time and all generations. It addresses every area of life in the 21st century and beyond.
Our adult Sunday school class will be led by Lydia Gray. The lesson is entitled, “Growing in Christ.” You are encouraged to attend and further your education and or share you experience with others.
Confirmation will be taught by Nick Smith and the younger grades by Janelle Davis. I am very pleased with the teachers we have and all the students that make it possible to have a Sunday Christian Education Program. Of course we need you, for without you we have no Christian Education.
