For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
Yes, atheism. Even if science is withdrawn from the issue, history is still atheistic without teaching God's Providence. Without God math makes absolutely no sense, it is blind faith based on nothing.
No Christian in their right mind would send their child to debate with an atheist, yet scores of thousands of them every day send their children to a place where not only can they not argue with the system, but they have no basis on which to argue against all of the ideas with which they are being presented when they do not even realize that they are being presented with them. Such as when a teacher says that law is made by the government, which is not true. Law is made by God, and it is carried out by the government.
Psalms 1 says we are not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful, but delight in the law of God. How are we delighting in God, how are we glorifying God, how are we loving God, if we are sitting at the feet of humanist philosophers of the modern city of man, the followers of Darwin, the sons of Plato, the brothers of Carl Marx.
We are to let our light so shine, we are to be salt, yet, if salt is constantly rolling about in pepper, if water is constantly being added to by dust, if a country is constantly being attacked from the outside, then it will soon loose its purity and its position.
We are in a war for the world, we cannot afford to allow our young soldiers to be trained in the camps of the enemies. Battle against the foe, do not join them. Do not abrogate your responsibilities, take them up, and remember that no matter what happens, we are to obey Christ first, and be all else second.
Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
Andrew C. Abbott
