I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Worldview 4

God speaks to man through his word and by His Spirit. He speaks His ways, His wisdom, His principles, and these things have application to all of life. He tells us that it is not the State, or the churches responsibility to teach and educate our children. It is the families responsibility.

Eph. 6:4 "Fathers... bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." Also Deut. 6

Education that is void of biblical principles will have its predicted result. Education either has Biblical principles embedded in the curriculum or it has some other belief system embedded. The idea of secular as non religious is foolishness. The secular mindset has a worldview based upon spiritual values of some sort. Even atheism is not spiritually neutral.

Matthew 6:24 says, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other."

God is the creator of the universe and it works by his principles. His pattern and laws rule over all of life.
We can learn quite a bit just by looking at the way God is configured. Here is the classic historical diagram of the Trinity.

Notice how this diagram of the Trinity is similar to the natural diagram of a family.

Notice also how the founders of our country used this same outline to establish the checks and balances of the US Government when it was founded.

It is these sort of patterns or principles that are missing from today's educational system.
They have been removed on purpose due to a "secular" bias. But you can easily see by the above diagrams how not knowing about the trinity can effect your understanding of family and government.

Well, more tomorrow.
