Camouflage

Make no mistake, there is much that is worthwhile in modern public education. This thought may seem to contradict what I wrote yesterday. That is, until we realize what the good accomplishes. While the good helps many, it also camouflages (hides) the deadly content. Hidden away in the “good” is thinking that denies God and/or discounts Him, or even dismisses any serious consideration of Him. Spiritually blind educators build their philosophies on the quicksand of man’s ideas and assumptions. Paul’s inspired warning of this danger is found in II Corinthians 4:3-4. He wrote: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” God alone is the One Who offers true wisdom and knowledge. Paul’s inspired reminder to the Colossians (and us) was that in Christ are: “….hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (From Colossians 2:3). Now, this God-less thinking, this Spiritually bankrupt worldview has gone from schools, colleges, seminars, etc. and permeated books, magazines, radio, TV, the internet and much more, and has increased the spiritual blindness of multitudes. Without Divine confrontation, there is no hope of rescue! An unwillingness to believe in God and to believe God, guarantees a God-less eternity in Hell. An unknown hymnwriter gave us, “Why Unbelieving, Why Wilt Thou Spurn?” It is a ringing challenge to anyone who has been blinded by the worldview of “fallen” men and women: “Why unbelieving? Why wilt thou spurn love that so gently pleads thy return? Come, ere thy fleeting day fades into night away; now mercy’s call obey—to Jesus come. Why unbelieving? wounding thy Lord, grieving His Spirit, doubting His Word? Think, ’twas for thee He died; think of His bleeding side; now to the crucified—to Jesus come. Why unbelieving? Thou canst be blest; Jesus will pardon, He’ll give thee rest. Why wilt thou longer wait? Haste to the open gate, come, ere it be too late—to Jesus come. Why unbelieving? Trifle no more; death may be near thee, e’en at thy door. Come with a broken heart, come, helpless as thou art, come, choose the better part—to Jesus come.” Selah! Far too many Christians have little or no clue that they have often “bought into” a lot of God-less thinking.  Ron
