Creation, Education and Nation

Its 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 and the purpose of our lives. The psalmist resonates with truth that touches 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 time and invited us into relationship with himself through his only son Jesus.

Isn’t this the greatest issue facing the nation?… a secular education system that is disconnected from its purpose so that it now educates a nation with an avoidable ignorance that denies answers to the greatest questions: who am I, how did I get here, and what is the purpose of my existence?

These are the great questions of life to which atheists and secularists have no answer. So why let them run our education system? It’s time for re-formation of education across the nation.
