Realizing that education does not end with
"school," but continues throughout my life.
Religion, morality, and knowledge,
being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind,
schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.
Article III, 1787
I do not limit my learning to those things the State says I should
learn. I follow the curriculum of the Creator of the Universe.
I do not substitute "infotainment" for first-hand
knowledge of the creation and I will not accept the canned
factoids of network "docudramas" for solid accounts by
eye-witnesses of history.
I question the authority and decrees of all rival lords and
false gods. I keep myself apprised of their strategies and lies.
I know that my education does not depend on teachers, but on my
own hunger for truth and thirst for knowledge.
Because I am a student of God's Commandments, I know that
education is not a "trivial pursuit" of unconnected
facts, but a holistic picture of the world as seen through the
wisdom and moral absolutes of its Creator.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who
love God, to those who are the called according to His
purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be
conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn
among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29
I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have
kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
This isn't that New Age
"Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
