REFORMED EDUCATION

REFORMED EDUCATION
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 1:7

Will President Trump’s new proposal plans for the education system work? I think not. It will be like all the other plans for the past thirty to forty years, just more taxpayers dollars poured down a dry hole. You can’t stitch rotten fabric and expect it to hold. You can’t build where there is no foundation. You can’t grow fruit in unfertile ground.
A system that attempts to teach knowledge where the principal part of knowledge has been ripped out and discarded can do nothing but fail. The “principal part of knowledge” is the “the fear of the Lord.” The word “fear” in our reference means a reverent and respectful acknowledgement of God. The government (public) education system censures any mention of God, much less a foundational and structural curriculum of the doctrine of God.
The religion of the Hindus, the Buddhist, Muslim, or whatever else for that matter may be discussed in depth, but the discussion of Christianity, God and Jesus Christ is taboo; the Bible and prayer are banded. I ask you the question, when we have a system dominated by agnostic instructors and totally depraved minds for its pupils, what other than absolute failure must we expect?
King Solomon, under the inspiration of God, wrote the Book of Proverbs, otherwise known as the Book of Wisdom. Solomon asked God for wisdom, and because he asked for nothing else God endowed Him with wisdom above all men neither prior to nor after him (I Kings 3:12). Therefore the wisest human being who ever lived could give the President and his education reformers a bit of “wise” advice. Namely, strive to put the principal part of knowledge (“the fear of the LORD”) back into the system.
Solomon lays the foundation of all wisdom here, “the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.” Always this has been God’s inspired declaration. Job declared it so before Solomon, Job 28:28; King David, the wise man’s father, also echoed Job in Psalm 111:10. Thus when Solomon is about to instruct us from the mouth of God he begins at the beginning, “the principal part.”
All heathen wisdom is folly. Of all knowledge the knowledge of God is the beginning. There is no true knowledge without God. Concerning God’s judgments, statues, and commands (Deuteronomy 4:6-7), “Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?” Let us allow God’s word in Romans 3:3 to be the final word “Let God be true and every man a liar.”
