“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
1 Corinthians 3:18-19
Education takes place all of the time in lots of different places. Any of us who would pass a speed trap on the way to work would slow down at that same spot the next day—especially if we received a ticket! We learned something.
The television provides a lot of that learning in many homes today. Our families often see the worst of the world there, but they still learned something.
Large colleges and universities can give us valuable skills to help us succeed in the workplace and the home. Unfortunately, many of them also are dedicated to a secular humanistic worldview that denies any absolute truth. Along with those important skills, students of those schools also learned something else.
At LCA, all of our teaching comes not from the changing worldly wisdom, but from the truth of God’s Word. We can teach history and show how God rewards those people and nations who honor Him. We can teach the orderliness of mathematics and show how that order proceeds from an orderly God. We can teach the English language as the way to read the truths of the Bible and as a medium to share those truths with others. Every subject has a solid basis in biblical truth for our students to learn.
We rejoice and count it a great privilege to be able to minister in the lives of young people each day. We want to be sure that what our students learn here truly is the wisdom of God!
