Education – destiny of the republic

Education, to educate, is neither good nor bad. No virtue can be assigned to a verb, but who is teaching and what is being taught is where virtue can be measured.

“That depends on who keeps the school and what is taught there. The schoolhouse May become a place for polishing fiends and graduating outlaws.”

“‘What you sow in the school you reap in the nation.’ Correct principles sown in the soil of the young mind… and ripened by the sun of gracious Providence… will sacredly preserve the past and guarantee the glory of the future.”

Education – Sacred Enthusiasm

Teach to make God known, so our children might grasp their “divine purpose” and “sacred enthusiasm.”

“The divine purpose… the ancient method by which from age to age mighty nations… have comprehended their heaven-appointed missions… and rendered themselves illustrious in human annals.”

“Let a man grasp, in honest conviction, a real thought of God, and spend his days in striving to realize it, and he is on the highway to glory, honor, and immortality.”

“To the kids and staff at River View Christian Academy, it felt like a bad dream.

Instead of knocking on the door and investigating, California officials stormed the campus like it was hiding the world’s most wanted terrorists. @PacificJustice”
