Missouri just voted to allow public schools to teach Bible courses.
A true believer’s last desire should be to put Bibles in the government schools.
Get Ready to Write This Down:
The only thing worse than a government school without Bibles is a government school with Bibles.
Where Are Your Priorities?
It’s so weird hearing Christians for decades demand prayer and Bibles put “back” in the government schools. Why would you ever want to do that?
I never hear them rally for putting prayer and Bibles in whore houses. Don’t those need prayer and Bibles more urgently than schools?
I never hear them rally for putting prayer and Bibles in crack dens. Don’t those need prayer and Bibles more urgently than schools?
Not to burst your entire view of this subject completely, but that actually is my goal: Prayer and Bibles have been in Congress and the White House for almost 250 years. How’s that been working out?
So sad I have to explain why this idea is devastating.
Let’s start with the teachers. These are government-trained bureaucrats, paid by government bureaucrats, administered by government bureaucrats, all of whom believe in diversity and inclusion as long as the true Creator God isn’t part of the mix. You want them teaching?
Oh I know. “Christian teachers are in my daughter’s school!”
I’m sure there are many prostitutes who say they’re Christians. Probably there’s an owner of a crack den somewhere in the world who says he’s a Christian. Yet, I don’t hear you demanding Bibles be required reading in those places.
Note: Please don’t misunderstand me. I’d never want to compare government schools to whore houses and crack dens. I would never want to disparage whore houses and crack dens so unfairly. They destroy thousands fewer children than schools do on a monthly basis.
A Better Use of Your Resources
Instead of trying to get Bibles in government schools, why don’t you use your resources to do some good?
Don’t work to put Bibles and prayer in schools; work to rescue children out of them.
