Yesterday I was once again honored to be on the Stand Up for the Truth show with Mike and Amy, and man, lemme tellya, it got really interesting.
We started off kicking around the current season of The American Political Puppet Show and talked a bit about what Christians should expect from the current crop of candidates being offered up by the system. We discussed what Christians should require in a candidate; what issue or qualification they should not bend on. (See also: How’s that Pagan “conservatism” workin’ out for ya, Christian?)
Then we moved on to the subject of State-run children’s “education”, and that’s when things went from interesting to really interesting. (See also: Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge.)
There were a couple of calls taken and a technical hiccup had me disconnected for a couple of minutes in the thick of things. Even so, good questions were asked and we made at least a start toward going to Scripture for the answers. It was a hoot!
We briefly touched on the “salt and light” argument for sending Christians into the State-controlled “education” system and we began to tackle fundamental nature of that system and whether Christians should be supporting or propping up that system at all. (See: Ten problems with the “salt and light” excuse for feeding children to the State.)
I was only supposed to be on for the first 35 minutes or so, but once we hit the education subject at around the 30 minute mark, we went on through the whole hour. We were just getting warmed up and into some meat when time constraints cut things short, but maybe there will be a Part II in the future…or maybe this would make a good launching point for an early FBC podcast. We’ll see…
At any rate, it was very good to at least begin to chase after Scriptural answers to critical questions on the nature of knowledge, truth, education and the lordship of Christ over each of these things here and now. (See also: Art, math, beauty, logic, law and economics…it’s all about Him.)
