I saw the M & M’s display in a store. The little M & M’s dude was dressed up like a rabbit. What am I supposed to think?
I talked to the clerk. I mentioned that the celebration of Easter is about someone special who was raised from the grave. She happily agreed, and the conversation began.
My summation to her was a question. “If this is the state of affairs today, what will it be in 30 years?” And in retrospect, I remember the Lord saying, when the Son of man returns will he even find faith on the earth.
Driving down the road, I thought about the complexities of religions. I came to that train of thought because most people will tell you there are too many opinions and not enough facts. They refuse to investigate because they think there is no hope of conquest.
Well let me answer.
In the field of religions someone has to be wrong. Someone has to be lying whether they know it or not. And in all the field of Religious Studies someone has to be right. Whether they KNOW it or not.
But using the excuse regarding opinions, people decide there is no use in chasing down the facts. There’s too much confusion, they will say. That’s an education that will turn out to be fatal.
A man says he doesn’t go to college because he has no need for the things they teach. But he is educated enough to make that choice. He has attended some sort of education that made him believe college is worthless. His rejection of college is not necessarily fatal. But in everything we decide, there is an inevitable outcome.
But let a man use that same premise to disregard the Living God’s Holy Son, and he commits a fatal education to himself.
Teach your children what you want. Remain blind and ignorant all your days. Excuse yourself from of education because there are so many variations. Yet the Living God owns all things and will call every man to account.
He is willing to guide anyone who will humble themselves to receive. And of all the things men strive to learn, there is nothing more important than the shape and texture of eternity.
An education of excuses. Is this what you want for your children? So be it.
