The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom Psalm 111:10a
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge Proverbs 1:7a
A fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’. Psalms 14:1; 53:1
A system of education based on the belief there is no God is a fool’s Education!
Webster’s 1828 America Dictionary of the English Language, defines “fool” as:
“3. In Scripture, a fool is often used for a wicked or depraved person: one who acts contrary to sound wisdom in his moral deportment: one who follows his own inclinations, who prefers trifling and temporary pleasures to the service of God and eternal happiness.
4. A weak Christian: a godly person who has much remaining sin and unbelief.”
It appears Webster’s definition is a summary of these verses on fools from God’s Word:
Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7b
Fools hate knowledge. Prov. 1:22b
The mouth of a fool brings ruin near. Prov. 10:14b
A babbling fool will come to ruin. Prov. 10:8b
Doing wrong is like a joke to a fool. Prov. 10:23a
A fool gives full vent to his anger. Prov. 29:11a
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes Prov. 12:15a [Is this not Humanism?]
A fool flaunts his folly. Prov. 13:16b.
A fool is reckless and careless. Prov. 14:16b
A fool despises his father’s instruction. Prov. 15:5a
Every fool will be quarreling. Prov. 20:3b
Wisdom is too lofty for a fool. Prov. 24:7a
A fool trusts in his own mind. Prov. 28:26
The fool walks in darkness. Ecc. 2:14
Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge. Prov. 14:7
A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion. Prov. 18:2
A FOOL SAYS IN HIS HEART THERE IS NO GOD. Psalm 14:1; 53:1
Doesn’t this accurately describe our nation after decades of an education without God?
Don’t the above verses also accurately describe the religion of Humanism? That being the case, is it any wonder many American Christians have turned away from God when over 90% of the church in America has been educated for well over one half a century in the humanistic seminaries euphemistically called public schools?!
Also, it seems the following verse clearly describes the political leanings resulting from a fool’s education versus Godly education which makes one wise:
A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right, but a fool’s heart to the left. Ecc.10:2
What kind of education is your child getting – a fool’s education or an education based on the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom and the beginning of knowledge?
“I am much afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, and engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not unceasingly
occupied with the Word of God must be corrupt.” –Martin Luther 1483-1546
